London Calling

Forget heading across the pond to celebrate the Olympics. San Diego is home to a bit of Brit.

The only sports you're competitive in are shopping, polishing and pampering. And even though you're not of Olympic caliber, you're still hyped to cheer on Team USA. From a very comfy chair with a drink in hand...

Westminster Shabby Chic | Your condo in the East Village could use a few upgrades to contend with Buckingham Palace. Don't get your knickers in a twist - Rosie Lee's British Foods in University Heights has home decor that's just bloody cute. The ragged rose throw pillow would be a smashing way to explore your current floral fetish.

Rear, White and Blue | Pippa's bridesmaid dress credited her "rear of the year." Attempt to run a close second with fabulous threads from across the pond found here at home by British designer Ted Baker at Fashion Valley Mall. Think sweet tops, fitted blazers and tailored trousers galore.

To Tea or Not to Tea? | That is the question. If you fancy a cup of authentic darjeeling tea fit for a queen, bring your best manners to Shakespeares Corner Shoppe. You and your fab four can nibble on finger sandwiches, scones with jam and biscuits (cookies), but remember, hold the honey - real Brits use milk in their tea.

Primp and Circumstance | Treat yourself to a red, white and blue mani at BePolished Studio in Coronado with London's own Butter Polish, or go for the gold with their summer special, a deluxe Queen BE pedicure and glow mini facial for $75. Pampering even Posh could appreciate.
