My cousin came to stay for the last few days and we crammed in quite a bit during her stay/ We went to the Westfield Stratford opening- loved it, it did have Westfield White City's bright and airy feel yet also was a lot more cultural.
Also surprised her with a trip to Madame Tussauds, since I knew she's wanted to go for a while, before heading off to the usual few tourist (got to be done even when you've lived in a city your whole life) spots- Oxford Circus, Carnaby Street, Leicester Square etc.
We also took a trip to Brick Lane. I am ashamed with myself for not going sooner. I absolutely loved it. The first half was the traditional end, full of curry houses, and the modern half was full of vintage shops and boutiques. I loved the second half and all its graffiti, clothing jewels and the vibe.
