So between my blog, Instagram, Snapchat – i.e anywhere that I can have a good chat and ramble with you – there has been a lot of Paris love over the last week, and to be fair, it kinda earned it. Paris was somewhere that I never expected to like as much as I did and I am already looking forward to heading back.
But there’s something about going away and waxing lyrical about my adventures that always has me feeling a little guilty on London – you know, ’cause London’s gonna be like “Yo bitch, what about me?” – which is why today’s post is a little “I’m doing an outfit of the day but really I know you’re all appreciating the incredible backdrops and that’s totally fine” ode to London.
We – the beautiful Lydia and I – shot these photos on the craziest of days. From glorious sunshine one minute, to pissing pouring down with rain the next, but it made me realise that when London is sunny, it really doesn’t get any better.

One of the most incredible things about London is that from one road to the next, you can feel like you’re in a totally different country with a totally different climate. The below pictures were taken in a beautiful little hidden area in Holland Park and I have already earmarked a return for a sunnier, brighter day because this place is an absolute gem. London, stop showing off now please…

Pretty frickin beautiful, right? So yes, I loved Paris, and I adore New York… but London will always be my baby.
Or, you know, home.

I would love to know your hidden gems and favourite places in London to visit? It’s such an amazing city and despite having lived in it for 23 years, I never feel like I’ve seen even a quarter of it. So let me know your recommendations, I’m all ears 🙂
As always, thanks so much for reading!

  3. London really is so beautiful. In a lot of ways it reminds me a lot of Melbourne, mainly because of the bi-polar weather, but London definitely wins out with the amazing locations and backdrops for photography.

    Love your outfit here as well, I had to do a double take to check if I had the same trench coat!

    These outfit shots are simply amazing, so beautifully captured! I wish I had someone to help me take some fashion shots #thestruggle. London weather really is unique isn't it haha, you need to have your sunnies & umbrella with you at all times. Definitely need to check out Holland Park after seeing these photos. Looking gorgeous as always x

    I've only visited London a handful of times so there's still SO much of the city I haven't seen but the parts I have seen have been impressive, I love how small London can make you feel.
    Those shoes are amazing by the way 🙂

    It's been ages since I've been to London! I keep on going to Paris, but London again someday too! I love the green door you found and those stone steps. And you look so chic! Adore the trousers!

  15. This is exactly how I feel about Leeds – it's my hometown, my bae and the most wonderful place in the world to me BUT I do fall in love with a lot of the places I visit! I was in London this week and the view from the Docklands of the O2 & Canary Wharf at night was all kinds of pretty!

    How To Get Ex Girlfriend Back When She Is Dating Another Guy Urgent Love spell That Work Fast? my girlfriend and i have been getting into little arguments which then later escalate. a lot of which are my fault but i never thought i would lose her because we are in love. she told me yesterday that she loves me but she is done. that the fights keep hurting her too much.i can’t believe i hurt her like that and would love nothing more than another chance to prove to her and myself that i will cut out my insecurities that I’ve brought into this relationship. It wasn’t until i lost her that my eyes really opened in what i was doing. i asked for another chance and she said she cannot do that right now. i asked if she is done with my forever and she said she doesn’t know what will happen down the road but right now she needs space. I’m lost, confused, heart broken. i feel like it’s all my fault and i don’t want to lose her, all she told me was that the relationship is over, she blocked me on whatsapp. i went no contact. she unblock me. i still maintain no contact she blocked me again. 1 week of no contact. will she come back? we were very close. she may not be the best looking girl. but i love her. now i begged her to consider me but she’s did listen, she left and i was frustrated, i began searching for help and answers, then i heard about a man that can cast a spell to remind her of all the things we have been through together, at first I was scared then i decided to give it a try, and like magic my girlfriend came back, apology and begging for forgiveness, thanks to this man, I’m posting this to help people with similar issues. you can contact him for help too. or view his page on…. his whatsapp number: +2348133873774 or his gmail:…
