Bits of London

6 Aug

Okay so here I am again after my short holiday with my girlfriend in London. We had a fantastic time there (again), just like we expected. We tried to visit places that we missed during those three months we lived there – of course, there are still a number of places to visit! I can’t wait to finish university and go and look for a job in London.

And I don’t care about the weather.

Because it’s (supposed to be) a fashion blog, I won’t tell you that we acted like real tourists this time; took pictures of the Buckingham Palace, went to Greenwich and we even traveled to the sea as the weather happened to be beautiful.

But I tell you that we arrived with almost empty suitcases in order to fill them with clothes, books, magazines, beauty products that we can’t get (or only for a lot more money) in our country. We have been in every store at the outlet center (from Next to Burberry), we fought to stay alive in the region of Oxford, Regent and Bond street.

PretARever: 100%. Proud to say we have never ever stepped foot in that Oxford Street hell hole. RT @iliketweet: Primark makes me sad.

Oh yes, I admit, we have been in that hell hole. OMG that was unbelievable! There are no words to describe what’s going on in there!

As we flew back from London, the suitcases hit exactly the weight limit, boy, they were heavy! Our flight had a two hour delay, but at least we had a few magazines to read while we waited. I bought Vogue Paris (it was a must, excellent pictures as usual), Dazed and Confused mainly because of the editorial with Ana Beatriz Barros and Karolina Kurkova and a magazine called Oyster, which I haven’t heard about so far, but it seemed to be interesting enough for me to buy it 🙂

I also bought Facehunter by Ivan Rodic and a book about Alexander McQueen. I really love reading!

There was an exhibition which was mentioned by Dapper Kid already, so I went to visit it. Unfortunately, taking pictures inside wasn’t allowed but I can tell you it was more than exceptional.

This was the guide to the exhibition, and here are a few pictures of the entrance:

I wonder why I like this cover...hiii!

On Sunday the Best of June post is going to appear, and prepare for a visit on Monday as Gisele Bündchen is going to be featured in the next issue of Model Monday. On Wednesday I should be posting shoes again, as usual 🙂
