The louboutin exhibition was just breathtaking. My favourite exhibition so far! Full blog post about it will be up over the next few days. I am now off for a final brick lane curry with my girls and then moving out tomorrow. <3 student halls its been amazing
It was just mesmerising! Stunning ball gowns from British designers modern and vintage, the whole collection took my breath away. I am off to the Christian Louboutin exhibition today, and two more at the V&A. I treated myself to a year long membership which means I can visit any exhibition at the V&A free of charge all year! I’m so excited to go back in a few weeks with my sketch book and marvel at the dresses once again - I have a feeling it may become my second home.
Yesterday I made a trip to Buckingham Palace, oxford circus and then finally cocktails in regent street. I seem to be having a cosmopolitan every week at the moment!
I have probably bought over 30 new items for my wardrobe in the past few weeks so I will do a massive blog post on them all too :) Not to mention some lovely beauty reviews of my new NARS, Chanel and Bobbi Brown makeup.
Hope you are all well!
I’ve posted a few snap shots I’ve taken with my iPhone over the past couple of weeks. I’ve had an incredible time seeing all my favourite people both in London and back home, in particular my favourite girl Annie who I only get to see occasionally as she lives in Surrey. I also went back home to see my sister who jumped out of a plane at 13,000 feet for charity! She was so brave and didn’t get nervous once - incredible! My grandparents also took me to Barrington Court to see the gardens. The roses were in full bloom and the sun was out - it was beautiful! I’m so proud of my English heritage and all the marvellous traditions and historical buildings England has. The gardens were definitely picture perfect with rows and rows of red roses climbing up tall brick garden walls. My grandparents are the best company and we all enjoyed a pint of cider made from apples grown in the field next to us! They always encourage my love for art having raised two talented creative daughters themselves, so they took me to see the Field for the British Isles by Antony Gormley. It really does need to be seen to be believed because visually its one of the most striking sights I’ve ever seen. Rooms are filled with over 40,000 hand made terracotta figures but the enormous scale of the this art work cannot be described with words! It was just fascinating. This wonderful day was then followed by two nights partying with my friends back home, visiting pubs for lunch and breakfast and helping to set up a pop-up vintage restaurant at Sunrise festival! My mother, sister and I headed to Bristol for some shopping and I bought practically a new wardrobe! My sister has now joined me in London and we went to Hackney festival yesterday. We were one of the lucky 50,000 who managed to grab a FREE ticket. We saw Lana Del Rey, Chase and Status, David Guetta, Maverick Sabre, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Labrinth, Pro Green, Plan B, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Florence & the machine, Azealia Banks, Flux Pavilion & Doctor P, Magnetic Man and Sub Focus. Needless to say it was one of the best days of my life. Today we nursed are tired bodies and hungover heads at camden market and tomorrow we are visiting the ball gowns exhibition at the V&A and the Christian Louboutin exhibition at the Design Musuem. I am one very happy girl!
