These past two weeks in London have been insane and I have fallen in love with the city. I have met some amazing people and making amazing memories with my friends. London, you will be missed.
We went to this super expensive restaurant called Aubaine for brunch because we found it on Instagram and it was way too cute not to go. Instead of spending £30 on brunch, we went the cheap route and got salads (which actually ended up being the best we have ever had, I can’t imagine how the actual entrees taste).
After brunch we went all the way to zone five (if you don’t know what this means it means that it was really freaking far) to take some photos in a cafe called God’s Own Junkyard, only to find out you need to book an appointment to use a camera there. We snuck ours out for a few shots anyway, shhh.
I wore my white bodysuit from Brandy Melville along with my mom jeans from Urban Outfitters. I also wore my new hat from River Island because I wanted to add something girly to my outfit. And yes I wore all of these articles of clothing last week but clothes are rare when you’re living out of a suitcase.
We had class on Monday morning and then we visited the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum which was creepy but surprisingly really fun. Then we explored Camden town, which was a cool little down with unique little shops as well as a lot of tourists. I bought some handmade jewelry from one of the little booths, which I will show in my London Haul blog! While we were there a fight broke out and we got locked inside a Starbucks, good times.
I wore my black bodysuit from Forever 21 with my new striped pants from Brandy Melville. And of course I always carry around my glasses from Urban in case I need to whip them out for a picture. I didn’t get the chance to get a full body picture but hopefully you get the point.
Tuesday was exhausting because we had to be ready at 7:30 am for our bus ride to Lacock Abbey. It was worth it because not only is this where Talbot invented photography, it is is also where parts of Harry Potter were filmed.
Then we took the bus to Stonehenge and took some touristy pictures of course. There were so many sheep around it was so exciting.
I wanted to be comfy for this day so I wore my new jumpsuit from Bershka. It’s the softest material and made it easy to sleep on the bus because…priorities. I also always have my new purse on me from Vendula London.
We spent hours doing some classwork in a museum on Wednesday and we were all pretty hangry until we finally ate lunch. After lunch we went to the Tower of London which is right next to the London Bridge. We took a few photos here and then headed out for some more shopping. During our shopping trip we decided we absolutely needed bubble tea, we took two trains to get to Soho and while we were trying to find it, we accidentally ran into the Ocean’s 8 premiere! We were so close to the actresses and in shock that we had just somehow stumbled across this.
My entire outfit is from Forever 21 because London has me broke. These jeans are one of my favorite things and I got so many compliments on them that day I was so happy.
THURSDAY & Friday
I don’t have any good pictures from these days 😦
On Thursday we went to the V&A all morning and worked on some assignments. This museum was incredible but I don’t have any good quality pictures, I guess you will just have to experience it for yourself someday! That night we ate at an Indian restaurant called Aladdin and then went to an art student for students finishing college. The artwork was incredible and I honestly am considering going to school here.
On Friday we spent the whole day in class reviewing our work (and I bought something, oops). After 4 hours in the classroom we were so drained that we decided to call it a night and finally catch up on Netflix (I highly recommend Jane the Virgin if you haven’t already watched it).
Ah yes, finally the weekend. We dedicated this day to our “instagram day” where we explored a few “instagrammable” places. Our first stop was a restaurant called Sketch, but when we got there we decided not to go in because it was super pricey and everyone was very dressed up. From here we walked to Snowflake Luxury Gelato to get some Avolato that we had seen on the Insider instagram page. I don’t even like avocados but it was still worth the £10. On the way back we stopped inside another cute ice cream store (there were so many) to take some pictures. I bought a coffee because I couldn’t eat anymore ice cream but I didn’t want to be rude.
Then we finally made it to the Buckingham Palace after attempting multiple times within the past two weeks. Honestly I was kind of disappointed that the Queen didn’t come out and greet me but I guess it’s fine.
I wore my white bodysuit from Brandy Melville (again, I know). My pants are also from Brandy and then I threw on my jean jacket from Topshop because it was kind of cold.
