As a self-proclaimed math nerd with a background in structural engineering, Anthony Urbano started blogging in 2011 as a creative outlet. Today, he uses his travel blog to share his perspective on all things fashion, lifestyle, food, travel and fun. On his latest trip to London, we sent him a few of our favorite products to use along the way. View some snapshots from his adventure below.

Covent Garden (pictued above) is a district of Westminster, in Greater London, on the eastern fringes of the West End, between Charing Cross Road and Drury Lane. This shopping destination is also known for its rich heritage through the centuries and the live performances that happen here.
"With Only 48 hours in London, I needed to plan my itinerary wisely," Anthony says. "I used my monogrammed Shinola Journal and leather journal cover to stay organized and keep track of all my wish list places to visit."
"The chili pepper color of Shinola's Runwell Backpack fit right in with London's classic telephone booths," Anthony says."This bag was exactly the pop of color I was looking for and it holds all my essentials for a day of exploring around the city."
"The food from Monmouth Kitchen (pictured above) was to die for," Anthony says. "We shared tapas all night long in their incredible restaurant."
"The ambiance inside of Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels makes it the perfect place to treat yourself if you're new to London."
