#tiptalk - 5 places to enjoy the sunshine ♥

Zara red dress - Similar
The weather is absolutely beautiful right now. The slightest bit of sunshine makes me want to jet off to Spain forever, I can't explain how much I love hot weather. I am in a much happier mood with sunshine in my life and it means that I can enjoy London even more. Over the bank holiday weekend, I planned a relaxing weekend with the girls and I thought it would be nice to share my favourite things to do when the weather is lovely and this might be helpful if you are taking a trip to London soon. I've made this list write about my favourite locations in London and some of them are pretty perfect for taking Instagram photos too and you don't need to spend a fortune either. 
Queen of Hoxton
After spending my morning at the vintage market in Brick Lane, we made our way to the Queen of Hoxton. The rooftop garden area opened at 2.00pm and we luckily arrived before the doors opened. We made our way up quite a few flights of stairs and luckily we managed to sit down in our own little booth. This was pretty perfect because we spent the rest of the sunny afternoon drinking Pimms and eating burgers. It was incredibly busy so I recommend you arrive early to secure a table and then you can eat burgers and fries in the sunshine. 
Vintage market
I know not everyone will love the idea of shopping when it is hot outside but I love visiting the Brick Lane area to see the vintage markets. I took the girls up here on Sunday and it was a lovely day of finding new clothes and accessories and Brick Lane has a really nice atmosphere. There are hundreds of stools lined up and you can find rare and unique items, I actually picked up a pair of toirtoise shell sunglasses for £10.00. They also have fresh juice stands and chinese food - my idea of heaven! Make sure you bring cash with you because not every stand takes card. 
On our hunt to find the perfect Instagram location, Lydia found a bar called Magic Roundabout in Shoreditch. This is a pretty big venue and you can certainly find a spot to enjoy burgers and cocktails. Each section of the venue has a different theme and vibe to it so you can certainly find some edgy Instagram photos. The photos for this blog post were taken in Magic Roundabout.
I doesn't matter how old I get, I will always love visiting the London Zoo. This is a photographers dream and I still need to visit now that I have my Canon camera. London Zoo is very important and signifcant for me personally because I visited the zoo the day before I had my heart surgery. I decided to spend my last day here in case my surgery did not go well. Luckily it did and I visited the zoo again last year with Ollie. Make sure you book your tickets online to avoid queuing for too long and it is best to arrive early so you can enjoy the zoo without it being too busy.  

I found this pretty tricky to get any Instagram photos because believe it or not, deer's don't really understand the importance of Instagram. Yes, this park is pretty special because countless deer live here and you might be lucky to spot a few when you visit. Ollie and I brought a picnic here and we sat in the sun eating and enjoying the sunshine and views. It is incredibly beautiful and you can also bring your dogs here. This is one of my favourite parks to visit and it is even more special when you see the deer walking close by.
