My Favorite/Most Instagrammable Restaurants in London

Fashion and Travel Blogger Glitter & Spice Shares Her Favorite Restaurants in London and Most Instagrammable Spots in London, England

In case you can’t tell, I was torn between two names for this post: my favorite restaurants in London versus the most Instagrammable restaurants in London. In the end, I decided on some combination of the two. Because why choose one when you can have both? (Shoutout to my dad for that nugget of wisdom)

While you’ve probably heard of some of these spots (or possibly even most of them if you’re a local!), I really tried to find a few restaurants off-the-beaten-path on my most recent trip to London. So there’s sure to be a restaurant or two even a true Londoner has never tried!

Keep reading for the full list and please share your favorite restaurants in London in the comments section! I’m always on the hunt for a new, delicious spot. Extra points to Gryffindor if I can add it to my list of the most Instagrammable restaurants in London too.

The Best Things to Do in the Summer in London

The Best Things to Do in the Summer in London | What to Do in London | Things to Do in London | Where to Go in London | Queen Mary's Rose Garden in London via travel blogger, Glitter & Spice

Just as a general disclaimer: while this post is specifically focused on things to do in the summer in London, it actually includes tons of things to do year-round in London. While certain places I include in this post are only open in the summer (like Queen Mary’s Rose Garden), some spots are great year-round… And potentially are even better in the winter as they’re the perfect excuse to escape the cold (like shopping at Selfridges). Or they’re just soooooo festive for the holiday season (like Hay’s Gallery).

In the past year, I’ve visited London twice. Once for two weeks in December and then again for two weeks this past June. This most recent trip marked my fourth time in London and I love the city more and more with each visit.

How to Create a Blog Newsletter

How to Create a Blog Newsletter

Happy Blogging Basics Wednesday! If you’re new to Glitter & Spice, Blogging Basics is a weekly series through which I answer popular questions about blogging. Topics can be as simple as how to balance blogging with a full-time job or why having a blogger bestie is important… Or as complex as plugins you should be using on your site and how to figure out your rate for sponsored posts.

This week, I thought I’d cover how to create a blog newsletter. Sounds fairly straightforward, sure. And once you get it up and running, it will pretty much run itself. But the initial design and creation can be fairly tedious and technical, so I thought I’d give my best tips (and a few examples!).

How to Be Festive for Valentine’s Day While Single

How to Be Festive for Valentine's Day While Single, Valentine's Day Outfit

My mother’s going to get so depressed when she sees the title for today’s post. But, honestly, I’m actually happy to be flying solo for Valentine’s Day this year.

And by “solo” I mean with a large group of my darling friends. Plus a glass (or a few!) of champagne. Because that’s the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day while single.
