We were wandering around Brighton last Friday with the best weather! 24 degrees and blue sky all weekend. Already thinking about the summer months and all the cool stuff that is coming up. In the UK the summer season starts in May and I would actually say it’s one of my favourite months living in Brighton. Food festival, The Great Escape music festival and Brighton Fringe all in one month. People here knows it’s the beginning of the summer and can just feel the happiness around.

There is always some cool pop up bars around and one of the newest ones is this Bison Beach Bar in Kemptown. Had couple of beers in the sun and actually ended getting a good workout as well, because we’re living on the other side of the town ha! If you are in town, go and check them out – have a beer and watch the waves.

On Sunday we headed out to London. I used to live there for 2,5 years and as hectic it gets, it’s nice to visit every now and than, specially in the summer. Had the best day for it as well 🙂 If you haven’t been to London yet, you got to put this on your bucket list! Really vibrant, colourful and beautiful metropolis. There is so much I could tell you about London, but you should go and experience it yourself!

Our plan was to head over to North – East to see Victoria Market. They organise this beautiful little food market every single Sunday between 10am – 4pm and I was happily surprised how many vegan products and food stools they had, heaven! The easiest way to get there from Central London is to take central line to Bethnal Green and walk the rest of the way. It’s a really nice little walk on a sunny day like this, took us about 15 minutes.

First thing I wanted to have was a strong coffee 😀 Got there and had a oat milk flat white, soo delicious! Flat whites are great because they are made with double shot of Espresso and with less milk, but still getting the whole taste spectrum – ab favs!

Instagram is such a great place to find pop ups, products, food or anything really but in this occasion I found all the food stools before we got there. If you want to check this market it’s @victoriaparkmkt I was most excited about these two   Crosstowndoughnuts + Jakesvegansteaks

 

PHILADELPHIA STYLE CHEEZESTEAKS

This was SO good! Sub, seitan, mustard and melted vegan cheese… I could just go back for this. All the stakes are fresh and handmade. I really like their business idea, these aren’t just for vegans, the purpose is to show all the people around that vegan food is and can be really delicious and is able to fix those Sunday cravings. My boyfriend had one and he is not vegan, but said this was the best seitan he has ever had before – so win win! Next time I will need to have those steak fries..

I have wanted to try these for the past year because of Instagram! Lot of people that I follow have been raving about how good these are and YES I agree. My filling was peanut butter and blackcurrant jam.. Oh lord! These guys has few shops around London city if you cant make it to the market. I will join these Instagram hypers – DO IT!

Lovely little market and a very special day.

I am already waiting my next holiday, luckily I have a week off in couple of weeks. I have started to do my own morning routine and exercises, so far so good! I have only started doing these ( it’s been two days ) but feel my day flows very differently.. I have never been a morning person and always thought people can’t change but maybe I was wrong. I will be posting updates how I’m getting on mainly on Instagram – Should I write a full post in here? Let me know your views in here or Instagram, really interested to hear. Do you exercise yourself? would you want to start? If you workout or do yoga/meditation what benefits have you experienced? Ping me a message and check out my Instagram account @thevegescandi
