FIRST STOP, LONDON TOWN

April 7, 2017

 

I'M MOVING TO LONDON...


JUST KIDDING, BUT I WOULD SERIOUSLY CONSIDER IT! IN CASE YOU MISSED MY OBNOXIOUS INSTAGRAM AND SNAPCHAT STORIES ABOUT ME BEING IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES FOR THE PAST THREE WEEKS, I JUST GOT BACK FROM THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE TRIP TO LONDON, PARIS, VENICE, FLORENCE, AND ROME! I'LL BLOG ABOUT THE REST OF MY TRIP LATER ON, BUT I WANTED TO START WITH THE FIRST PLACE I WENT AND FELL IN LOVE WITH, LONDON!!

 
AHHH WHERE DO I EVEN START?! I WAS IN LONDON FOR 6 DAYS AND PROBABLY COULD HAVE STAYED 6 MORE MONTHS, LOL THERE IS SOOO MUCH TO SEE! I WENT WITH MY FRIEND SARAH ON THIS 3 WEEK JOURNEY AND OUR FIRST STOP WAS TO VISIT OUR BEST FRIEND MARK. HE IS CURRENTLY STUDYING ABROAD AT ONE OF THE DOPEST ART SCHOOLS IN LONDON, CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS. (MAMA P IS SO PROUD!!!!) ANYWAY, ONE OF THE COOLEST THINGS ABOUT LONDON IS THE UNDERGROUND OR WHAT THEY CALL "THE TUBE", IT GETS YOU ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE SO QUICK I WAS BAFFLED. IT'S DESIGNED SO PERFECTLY BECAUSE LONDON IS FILLED WITH 500 LITTLE POCKETS OF CUTE CITIES THAT ARE ALL AROUND A 10 MINUTE TUBE RIDE FROM EACH OTHER. EACH ONE OF THEM HAS THEIR OWN PERSONALITY AND VIBE TO IT. SOME OF MY FAVORITES WERE PICCADILLY CIRCUS, OXFORD CIRCUS, SOHO, NOTTING HILL, COVENT GARDEN, AND SHOREDITCH. BELIEVE ME, THE NAMES ARE LITERALLY JUST AS FUN AS THE CITIES ARE!

 

 

I COULD LITERALLY WRITE A GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT WIKIPEDIA PAGE ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE PLACES SO BE ON THE LOOK OUT ON GOOGLE LOL. OR MAYBE ILL JUST BLOG ABOUT THEM FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR BECAUSE I WAS JUST THAT MUCH IN LOVE HEHE. TAKE A STROLL THROUGH NOTTING HILL WITH ME..IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN MY ABSOLUTE FAV..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE WENT TO NOTTING HILL ON A SATURDAY, WHERE THEY HAVE THEIR FAMOUS SATURDAY MARKET ON PORTOBELLO ROAD. WITH STREET VENDORS LINED UP FOR 2 MILES THEY HAVE EVERYTHING FROM REAL FUR COATS TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS THAT NO ONE WAS BUYING ME.......NOTTING HILL WAS BEAUTIFUL THOUGH, WITH COTTON CANDY COLORED HOUSES AND DIFFERENT COLORED DOORS EVERYWHERE, THIS WAS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE MORE MEMORABLE DAYS IN LONDON! 

---

ONE THING I THINK I LOVED MOST ABOUT LONDON WAS THE FACT THAT WE WEREN'T REALLY BEING "TOURISTS" WHILE WE WERE THERE. I MEAN WE WENT TO PARLIAMENT AND WESTMINSTER AND DID THE WHOLE BUCKINGHAM PALACE THING (SO COOL BTW) BUT WE ALSO JUST KIND OF WENT WITH THE FLOW AND JUST WOKE UP EVERYDAY AND RAN AROUND LIKE CHICKENS WITH OUR HEADS CUT OFF BECAUSE THATS JUST HOW IT GOES IN LONDON TOWN. DID WE GET LOST?! UHH YES. DID WE SHOP WAY WAY WAY TOO MUCH?! OOPS YES. DID WE WALK 2 MILES TO FIND A PINK DOOR THAT WAS 2 MILES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION...YES YES YES HAHAHA. WOULD I DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN?! IN A HEARTBEAT. I WISH I COULD EXPLAIN TO YOU IN WORDS HOW DOPE LONDON IS BUT I FEEL LIKE IT'S NEVER GOING TO BE ENOUGH, YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE IT FOR YOUR OWN EYES. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 THE STYLE, THE STYLE, THE STYLE!!!! ABSOLUTELY UNREAL I WAS SO INSPIRED. THREE WORDS, NO. ONE. CARES. AND THAT IS SERIOUSLY THE BEST PART! IF YOU WANT A PLACE TO TAKE A FASHION RISK, LONDON IS THE PLACE TO DO IT. YOU SEE PEOPLE IN THE MOST RANDOM, ODD LOOKING, NOT PUT TOGETHER OUTFITS AND THEY SOMEHOW LOOK LIKE THEY JUST CAME OFF THE RUNWAY IN THEIR FUR COAT AND ADIDAS SWEATPANTS THAT THEY PROBABLY JUST THREW ON IN 5 MINUTES. EVERYTHING JUST WORKS AND NO ONE WEARS HEELS. (THEY'RE SMART) THEY WALK LITERALLY EVERYWHERE SO AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THEIR FEET TO HURT! SO YOU'LL SEE GIRLS IN THEIR PEACOATS AND SKIRTS WITH TIGHTS AND THEN EITHER ADIDAS OR VANS, AND THEY JUST PULL IT OFF SO WELL!

 

ON TO THE FLOWER SHOPS!! IF YOU KNOW ME AND MY FAMILY, YOU KNOW MY MOTHER IS A LOWKEY FLORIST AND BASICALLY SHOULD HAVE HER OWN SHOP, SO WHEN I SEE PRETTY FLORAL SHOPS ITS LITERALLY IS A CRIME TO NOT TAKE A THOUSAND PICTURES AND DROOL ALL OVER THE FLOWERS. LIBERTY LONDON IN SOHO IS A DEPARTMENT STORE THAT HAS A FLORAL SHOP YOU HAVE TO WALK THROUGH TO GET IN. BELIEVE ME, IT'S EVEN PRETTIER IN PERSON AND I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE!

 

 

 

 

 

CLEARLY I HAD AN AWFUL TIME IN LONDON AND TOOK ABSOLUTELY ZERO PICTURES!!!!! : )

IT WAS HONESTLY SUCH AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE AND TRULY HELPED ME REALIZE THAT BEING YOUR 100% SELF IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO. I LOVED THE MENTALITY THAT EVERYONE HAS THERE, THEY STAY IN THEIR OWN LANE AND DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS ABOUT THEIR BOLD MOVES. I KNOW I WAS DEFINITELY INSPIRED TO BE NOTHING BUT COMPLETELY RAW AND UNCUT BECAUSE YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE AM I RIGHT?!

SO WITH THAT BEING SAID...EVERYONE GO VISIT LONDON!!! AND ENJOY THE REST OF MY PICTURES!
