Halloween cocktail party on Winchester St.!

This party was full of Halloween mischief, such as donut eating and apple bobbing! Thanks to Jana, Ashley, and Laurence for an awesome party!

Victoria & Albert Museum!

More shots from the V&A!

Victoria & Albert Museum!

I went to the V&A Museum for the first time today and absolutely fell in love! I want to live there! I couldn't take pictures of the awesome treasures inside, but check out the gorgeousness of the building's exterior:

Pathway to/from Holy Trinity Brompton Church

Holy Trinity Brompton Church

A beautiful Anglican church (also near the V&A Museum)...

Brompton Oratory

aka Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Beautiful Roman Catholic Church in South Kensington right by the V&A Museum. Nick Cave wrote a song about this place, and it's my 2nd favorite song on The Boatman's Call album. (Where do we go but nowhere is my 1st fav) There's a black and white youtube video of the song at this link: It's a beautiful, mournful song, and seeing this place reminded me of how much I love Nick Cave.

After watching that Brompton Oratory video, I just had to watch this other great Nick Cave youtube video of The Ship Song: Love it.

lace-up ankle booties

I needed some comfy but fashionable shoes other than cowboy boots to walk around London in. Hence these new black lace-up ankle booties from Office. They are simple, but I luv them.

TOPSHOP! Feathers! Sequins! Sparkly dresses! Girls going crazy!

I have not had time to explore London recently due to a hectic schedule and a bad cold/sinus infection. Also, I am currently in the middle of an essay on Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Did you know that Rossetti had a pet wombat?

There is even a book written about it!:

Admiralty Arch

(In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910)


I love the fact that there are lions everywhere in London. This one was in front of the Law Society on Chancery Lane.:

And this bad boy was in Trafalgar Square. :

A cloudy day in Trafalgar Square

A lovely stroll through Russell Square park...
