25/06/17 || Photos from a bathroom for Selfie Sunday. What a beautiful summer I’m having so far! Work and play in just the right balance, with enough time for writing, drawing, and painting (insert heart eyes). What a dreamy life. Just less than two weeks before I jet off for the next stage of my summer in HK, and I can’t waaiiit. Have a good next week everyone :)

An ideal day in London?
I would walk around Soho, drink coffee, eat and check out the shops. It’s a magical place and while having such high volume of tourists it also manages to retain its fabulous community spirit.“
When I’m back home I love it here
The Groucho Club is a pretty great place. It’s relaxed and you’re always going to get privacy in there - it’s a London institution and it’s not difficult to see why.
For a night out
We’ve got the best pub scene in the world - Soho has great nightlife - but if you want to get a little out of central, Putney has some great pubs and places to eat.
How you recover the next day:
Start with a strong coffee at Bar Italia - a London institution - grab a burger at Five Guys and then take a walk around Green Park to clear your head.
If you’re still hungry
The steak at the The French House pub is fantastic. I used to eat there all the time.
You have to get to a gig in town
London has world famous venues like Ronnie Scott’s, but it’s also worth checking out smaller pubs and academies a lot of big artists started that way here. If you’re in Brixton, Clapham or Putney, you could be watching the next big thing.
London’s great for families
We’re so fortunate to have some of the best museums in the world - and even more fortunate that there is usually no fee to get in. If you have time, you could easily spend a whole day walking around either the Science or Natural History museum.
Avoid Oxford Street and shop here
Go and check out the vintage record shops in Soho, browse stalls in Camden Market, those are some places with real soul.
This museum is amazing
The London library in St James’ Square is just so majestic. You can find books that are over hundreds of years old written in all languages.
Finally, the best advice I can give you
Forget public transportation and walk. London has the most wonderful sounds, smells, architecture and people, don’t waste the most incredible city in the world stuck underground or in a cab.

It sounds like the punchline to a joke: overachiever Taylor Swift arrived 15 minutes early for her own show. Maybe it was logistical but it also seems plausible that she was as eager to see the 65,000 fans in Hyde Park as they were her.
This review (from thy Hyde Park show) brings back a boatload of emotions. I was sitting on the floor with my friend when ‘Feel So Close’ started playing and I was like “That’s weird. That’s meant to be the last song before she comes on but there’s still like 15 minutes until her set time….” then the crowd bunched forward as the song finished because, guess what? She was 15 freaking minutes early for her own set time! Only Taylor would do that.
That day was incredible and I can’t believe it has almost been 2 years since then!
