Prepare yourselves for a load of word vomit and lots of photos because I’ve tried to narrow this down as much as possible but I just don’t think it’s happening. Yesterday I turned 20 (eurgh) and my blogged turned 4 (I think) and in celebration of all events I coincidentally did loads of well fun things. Here are them all documented in blurry photographs. YAY!COLUMBIA ROAD
Mum came down to London to stop with me for the weekend and with her love of gardening and (trying to) grow things, it was only right to take a trip to Columbia Road Flower Market. AKA my all time favourite place in London ever ever ever. Stopping off at Ryan Town and for a croissant on the way down, we also took a visit to Geffrye Museum. Oh East London, I love ya.
The exhibition that been over everyone’s Insta. I’ve wanted to visit for so so long. It’s really weird and nothing like I’ve ever been to before. Based on making choices, we wore upside down glasses (and Mum freaked), got lost in a pitch black space and got strapped to a fly machine, it was only right that the exhibition ended with us going down a slide (!!!!!!). The exhibition ends on the 6th so there’s not long left but worth getting tickets if you have a free afternoon.
After working flat out the past month, any spare time has been spent sleeping and washing clothes. I forget how nice it is to spend a day exploring London. We walked along the Southbank, popped into Somerset House, ate some amazing vegetarian food and managed to get super cheap tickets to see Wicked too. Obvs a photo of the flowers outside Liberty had to be taken.
I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO GO TO CARNIVAL. With my birthday being over bank holiday, it was always a choice between Leeds fest or a trip to London. Now I’m living here, it was wrong not to really. It was also my best mate from home’s birthday so we dragged our mates from home down and went along Monday afternoon. Ft stars glued to our faces our costumes just weren’t as impressive as everyone elses but we ate chicken (or just rice for me the awkward veggie), drank red stripe and bought whistles. Mega fun. Flippin loved it. I’m going next year.
Sorry for the really long post/not posting at all recently, everything’s a bit weird/shit recently and I don’t really know what to do so this weekend was really really really nice and made everything a bit better. Maybe a long ramble-y post will come soon or maybe something a bit more fashion-y related. I dunno. Maybe maybe not. FAREWELL.
(also I’m well into this line break thing atm, so gonna use this more often)
