London





Last week, me and my friend Louise decided to spend the day in London. Despite it being one of my favourite places, I only tend to visit four or five times a year, so was very excited at another trip, especially with one of my closest friends.

Louise studies Interior Design and needed research material, so we headed to the Fashion and Textile Museum near London Bridge. I've visited before, but this time they had a Thea Porter exhibition on. It was incredibly interesting and focused on the 70s Bohemian Chic, which is one of my favourite styles. The exhibition is perfect for anyone interested in fashion or fabric design.

After we had finished there, we decided to spend the day being 'proper' tourists. We went to the V&A museum, I had never been round their theatre production part but absolutely fell in love with the costumes and set designs they had. We also went to the Natural History Museum. I have been here before too, but only in school holidays, all I will say is... Children EVERYWHERE. It was slightly chaotic but we knew we both wanted to have a look round the animal biology part, so didn't spend too long looking round the rest after that.

I'm writing an essay at Uni comparing the digital and material culture of shopping so knew Harrods was going to be the next place on the list. Not going to lie, we spent most of our time in the food area, where they literally had the most amazing food ever. We were both quite tempted and ended up buying a Dough-sant. I'd never heard of them before, but they are basically a croissant/doughnut mixed in. I swear I could have picked it up and eaten it right then and there, but I patiently waited till after our lunch.

After we had been to Azzurros for one of the best pizzas ever, we walked down along Southbank which was absolutely beautiful as the sun was just setting and sat looking over Big Ben, London eye and the Thames and ate my Dough-sant, it was bliss haha!

I was really sad when the day was over, but can't wait to go back again soon!

  2. I visited Harrods last month and now I'm totally regretting not buying a dough-sant! I didn't even realise what they were at the time. Sounds like you had a lovely day, I've never been to the National History Museum but it' on my to-do list :)
