LIVE LIKE a london Girl: Parsons Green

New Kings Road in Parsons Green is one of my regular haunts. My Whole Foods is just around the corner and to get there I can bike all along the Thames, crossing the lovely Bishop's Park. If you find yourself in this part of town, I would recommend that you make a stop at Deuxieme, a consignments shop with an up to date roster of design goodie. Last time I was there, a girl just snagged a cute Bella Freud sweater before I could, and I saw some very cool Air Max and a gorgeous pair of Sergio Rossi's.

Walk along the excellent furniture shops and then stop at Hally's or Little H across the street. These two places were started after its owners took a trip to Cali, and realized that a Venice inspired restaurant would be a brilliant addition to the London coffee and food scene. So they remodeled an old building, made it look like a Californian beach house - complete with reclaimed wood floors, pastel dipped chairs, white clapboarding and neon signage. It gives a fresh, light vibe that can't help you put you in a sunny mood. 
From there you can walk to and lounge around on Eel Book Common, crossing it will bring you to the busy where you can find all your High Street favorites, or you can head back to the park, hang out  for a long and lazy afternoon, or visit its Fulham palace.

I had the best green juice at Hally's
