So yesterday we went to go see portobello market which was way cool! They had knife jugglers and awesome fresh food markets and fun shops. I got a bracelet for myself that I really like. Silver and clasps like a belt buckle! Then we came home to droop our things off, change into something fancier and hit up the Apollo! We first had dinner at a fun place called the willow walk right next door. I...
Day tHree fancyyyy
So yesterday we made tea time for 11:30am at THE RITZ HOTEL NO BIG DEAL. Sean, Audrey and I got all gussied up and took the tube to the ritz :) omg it was so fancy. Apparently a shirt, tie, and sweater isn’t dressy enough for Sean so they gave him a coat in his size to use! Oh wow and the finger sandwiches were amazing. Some turkey and Swiss,mcucumber and sprouts, some with egg salad or...
Day 2 part two
So we relaxed at the flat for a bit, then took the tube up towards Winchester and saw the palace and big Ben! So cool! Then we spent the rest of the night traipsing around town. We first stopped at a pub but Sean didn’t think it was pubby enough lol so we literally left and found another pub that apparently met his standards ;). It was great! He got a brew, I got my fish and chips and...
Day 2 part one
Woke up at 11:30am…..whoa, 13 hours of sleep! Felt amazing. Got showered and had breakfast at the flat—oatmeal and cinnamon rolls and milk. Went and tooko the tube to Oxford circus! Shopped at Mango, Burberry, Primark, M&S, and top shop! Sean found even more than I did! Fairly impressive:) Stopped by a little place and had a snack to keep us going. Now we are back at the flat...
Day no. 1
Got to London at 8am, took the tube all the way to Queens way by where we are staying. Then, since we scheduled meeting our flat management at 11, we killed the time by having bfast at a little cafe nearby the tube. Croissants and mocha and earl grey tea:) quite lovely. Then we got let into our flat, unpacked, then curled up and passed out for two hours! Felt soooo good lol. Woke up at about...
Let us depart!
Blog sat feb 23 So here it is. I started my morning by arriving at the airport only to realize i left my iphone at my aunts house in western springs. So I’m without phone, but Sean has his and graciously let me log into my twitter and instagram so we can post to our loved ones regardless:) I’m currently on the American airlines plane to London from Chicago. We are about two or...
This week has been hard. Being sick and staying home alone for days on end really puts me in a bad spot mentally. I hate being left alone with my anxieties. I just dwell on things that I shouldn’t dwell on. I’m feeling….I don’t know. Kind of hopeless lately. I don’t have many of my own goals. I never really have. For as long as I can remember, I’ve copied...
well i lost my passport? er, well maybe my dad did. we really have no idea. all i know is that i get to throw a couple extra hundred bucks at THAT on top of everything else london-esque. i can’t care, though. i’m going to london. that’s all that really matters to me. i’m terrified every other five minutes of the flight. i see it, out of nowhere, just losing altitude...
i love that sean's roommate pete sits in his room...
but i don’t say anything ‘cause i’m afraid he’ll stop and i love listening to it.
