G is for ….

Greville street! Bugs and I had recently discovered this lovely little rather bohemian shopping strip on our way to music class. The shopping district itself is tucked away in a little side street, with only a tiny sign indicating its existence- it’s no wonder I had walked past it many times and not noticed it at all!

Home to many independent shops (and a sprinkling of chain stores), Greville street has that nice, laid-back, artistic atmosphere that makes you feel like you could spend the whole day browsing through the stores or watching people pass by in one of the many unique cafes.

We took a few shots today to try and capture the relaxed, quirky vibe of the area- hope you enjoy them and it puts you into the right mood to kick start the weekend :)!

20120210-221902.jpgI wonder what lies behind those doors- perhaps another mysterious magical world where artists roam free?

20120210-222220.jpgNo better way to kick off the weekend than with a pint or two at the local!

20120210-223029.jpgProbably one of the quirkier stores we came across…

20120210-223302.jpg…where you can get your coffee, cake, clothes, homewares, books here in one stop!

20120210-223337.jpgThis clothing store has obviously been inspired by America (the band).

Hip hop hooray! The weekend is finally here! Till tomorrow everyone!
