Sky Garden, Borough Market, and Peggy Porschen Cakes

Today was a fun, busy, and super cold day. Alison, Liv, and I started the day by going to the Sky Gardens, where we got to see some amazing views looking out onto the city. Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed out on the balcony because we’re apparently having the worst snow storm in London in 50 years right now (snow storm Emma). I thought I went abroad to escape the NY snow but apparently I brought it with me instead. After spending about an hour at the Sky Gardens we headed to the Borough Market for some lunch. I had to convince myself not to get a burger because I swear that’s all I eat but I had to get a quick pic of the New Yorker and the Londoner because they were right next to each other! I did have more mulled cider though because why not drink in the middle of the afternoon! Honestly, it was a good move because it kept us from freezing for a little while. If you couldn’t already tell by my outfit, it was very cold. We walked around the market exploring and stealing samples before we got super cold and decided to head someplace inside to get warm. So we hopped on the train because public transport is how you get everywhere in London and went to Peggy Porschen’s. Which is this super cute all pink bakery that has tons of yummy cakes and cupcakes. The three of us ended up sharing two slices of cake and a hot chocolate. The cakes were super yummy but I’m not really a cake person so I mostly stuck to the hot chocolate which was not only the prettiest I’ve ever seen but the best I’ve tasted too! While waiting for a table I took tons of pics outside because how could I not with how cute it was! (these are not even all of them). Once we finished we decided to call it a day and head back to campus.
