In my beautiful Collectif shirt from Lady B Love.
As some of you may know, I come from Norwich, and I love my hometown!
The great thing about Norwich, bar the beauty, history and amazing people, is our love for independent shops. From quirky gift and clothing stores to the brilliant and innovative coffee and food scene.
One of my all time favourite shops for clothing is Lady B Loves which sells some of the best vintage inspired brands, and is in the stunning setting of the Royal Arcade. Also they stock their own chub rub shorties! Go check them out, as they are a summer lifesaver for us curvy girls! This is also where I got my favourite Collectif rainbow skirt from 🌈.
Quirky handmade jewellery and cute plants from Littlesmiths Norfolk.
We also have some of the most amazing independent stores celebrating the handmade talents from not just our hometown, but all around our country. Littlesmiths which is situated in Norwich and Fakenham, introduces you to some beautiful and individual items, and I fell in love with these Peony Vintage earrings and also purchased a little plant for my husband.
Kofra on Onley Street is a great little stop off point, on a walk into the city.
Coffee shops, oh we have so many independents for you to try! Strangers Coffee (which has a rostery too!), Kofra, Fika, and Unknown coffee are just a few and are all experts in their craft.
If you prefer tea, then Biddy’s tea Room (which I’m pictured swinging from their pole on my opening picture) has a wide variety of different teas, oh and their cakes and saviours are amazing too!
Cupcake and Co made my husband a special birthday cake of our beloved cat Lester (this was after we lit the cake, so unikitty has a bit of a burnt horn!)
To end on a sweet note, we also have some fabulous and talented bakers in Norwich. One lady I have loved for many years is Cupcake and Co on Upper At Giles. From her cute cupcakes to her spectacular cakes, this lady makes everything delicious. Also she has so scrummy vegan options too!
Also another talent to watch out is the beautiful Maggie. From authentic delicious Danish pastries, to ridiculously good Rye bread. You can get her goodies from Rainbow whole foods just of Guildhall, and lots of good cafes around Norwich too. Check out her website for where she will be!
These are just a few little place I know and love. What is your favourite in Norwich or your hometown? Let me what where I should visit and try!
