Party in Islington

A friend's 50th birthday party in Islington on Saturday.
Absolutely a great party.
App 100 guests, spacious roof garden, lots of champagne, BBQ, great weather...
One of the best parties ever. Stayed there untill 3am!

Views from the roof top garden of the penthouse:

On Friday had a long walk in the parks of London. The wheather was perfect
- sunny, hardly any clouds

Green Park

Hyde Park

Italian Garden

Before the party had some time to do a bit shopping for the autumn:
Black thin woolen coat from Prada
Black flat heel boots from Prada
- Old Bond Street
Colourful woollen Missoni scarf from Liberty
- Regent Street
Greyish-beige handbag from Miu Miu
- New Bond Street

At this point no more money left.
Just some t-shirts from Abercrombie and a cashmire sweater from Gap.
