En snabbis till London

En snabbis till London

Fashion

Den här helgen besöker jag London en snabbis för att träffa samarbetspartners, vänner, besöka Tate Modern (alltid ett måste för inspiration), klämma in en musikal samt såklart plåtningar. London är en ständig inspiration för nya idéer och även om det är en rätt sjaskig stad så ligger den i topp fem över städer jag vill flytta till inom en inte alltför avlägsen framtid. Här finns ett driv och en anda som till och med andra metropoler som NYC, LA eller SF (som alla tre också finns på min lista) saknar. Det är ungt, trendkänsligt och ständigt i förnyelse, vilket man också ser i stadsbilden rent arkitektoniskt.

Just nu förbereder sig staden för julen och börjar så smått förvandlas till ett sprudlande julparadis, men ändå inte ens i närheten av det vackra Prag som jag med min mor ska besöka för första gången i december för att faktiskt ha SEMESTER. Japp, jag kanske har varit ledig en hel del från jobbet i höst och rest runt, men någon semester har det inte varit. Att blogga är inte bara att ställa sig framför en kamera och ta några bilder. Det kräver så oerhört mycket mer än bara så och jag lär mig mer hela tiden, så all den ”ledighet” jag haft i höst har varit full rulle på modeveckor, pressveckor, plåtningar med sjuka scheman över helger (något ni får se resultatet av inom kort) och så vidare. I ett framtida inlägg ska jag berätta om hur det faktiskt går till när man har ett heltidsjobb och utöver det bloggar på något så när heltid. Men nog om det, nu ska jag försöka njuta lite av London de få timmar jag har lediga här. Hörs nästa vecka och trevlig helg på er!

    I love these pictures! London is a place I am dying to visit! I’ve heard the weather is not so great but there’s so much to see: the architectures, the people, the food!

    You have quite a busy life dear! Enjoy this time and the upcoming vaca with you mom! Have a great weekend!

    Bisous, Josie

      Well, London has a reputation of always having rain pouring down the sky, which was true for one out of the three days I was there, but I’ve experienced hot summer days in London too, so it’s a bit of an unfair reputation it has regarding that 🙂

      And thanks darling!
      Bisous,

    I love the cute streets of London and the cars and all the fabulous doors! And yes, Tate Modern is one of my fav museums. But I also have to agree that Paris will always be one of my favs! So amazing that you have all these travels planned ahead!! I wish I could go too but the next best thing is seeing the photos and hearing about them from you! Love this plaid shirt and of course the cute telephone booths! Xoxo, Christine

You are a fantastic writer who writes about many interesting things which I can relate to. How exiting about those travel plans ahead? Hopefully you will make it to US one day soon as I would love to meet you in person.

    Have fun in London and can’t wait to see more pictures/stories you will experience while there.

    Great outfit. I love London. My cousin moved there since her common law is from London. I’ve visited only for a few days and thought it was beautiful. Food is a tad on the pricy side but I love how pretty it is there! Flying within Europe is so affordable. I envy that about where you live! Enjoy your trip!
