The View

Always be grateful..

While my parents were in London, we went out to Westminster to meet with my dad’s friend. The sun was shining, and the breeze was perfect, and I just had a moment where I felt extremely grateful. I always feel grateful, but this time was so different. I just felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be, and I was doing everything I’m meant to, and I rarely have that feeling. The second photo is the background of the first photo, through my eyes. And what I saw while I was thinking about everything it took for me to get to where I am now. There’s not many photos in this post, but I just felt like sharing 🙂

Chelsea Flower Show

Here are some photos of the beautiful displays at the Chelsea Flower Show

Here are some photos of the beautiful displays at the Chelsea Flower Show in Sloane Square. The theme this year was ocean conservation themed so there were jellyfish, dolphins, turtles, octopus and more made entirely of plants/flowers!

Bristol

took a quick day trip to Bristol and fell in love.. here are some things I saw there

I’ve never been to Bristol before this, and didn’t really know what to expect. It was suck a laid back and genuinely cool place and I loved the difference in the vibe compared to London. It was full of creative art and skateboarders all over town. Below are some of the places I explored!

Exploring British Museum

Just a few snaps from my second trip to the British Museum x

The British Museum has the coolest ancient Egyptian collection I’ve ever seen at a museum. For those of you who don’t know, ancient Egyptian history has been a big interest of mine since I was a little kid. This is my second trip to the museum, so I decided to have a look at everything else they had to offer, outside of the Egyptian section. So here are a few snaps of what I saw.

Brighton

I was itching to travel but was on a tight student budget, so I decided to travel within the UK. It was exciting to visit a new place and it was an interesting experience traveling alone. Brighton is 1 hour and 30 minutes outside of London by train, and only cost me 12 GBP, which was a steal. I got around by walking, and only took the bus too and from the rail station (as Bristol doesn’t take Oyster cards and I had to use my contactless on the bus which was more costly). Here are some of the place I visited and the things I saw on my little adventure.

Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibit

My favorite pieces from the Dior exhibit at the V&A

In March I attended the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibit at the V&A museum. It was definitely one of the most amazing exhibits I’ve ever been to and I’m so glad I got to go. The exhibit featured garments made by all of the former creative directors, and the current creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the exhibition!

Totem

Totem: by Cirque de Soleil

Cirque De Soleil shows are my favorite shows to go see live. I’ve only been to two, but they’re so much fun. My mom came up to London to visit me so I planned for us to see the Totem show. There was a lot going on, but to make a long story short it was about everything in the world. Animals, tribes, evolution, different cultures and everything in between. Here are some photos I took before the show.

Tate Modern

These photos are from my first visit to the Tate London museum here in London. It’s a contemporary art museum housing some of the most confusing pieces of art I’ve ever come across. Here are some art pieces I found interesting (or that made sense to me haha).
