for four months - YAY ME!! Since I couldn't get a working visa (yeah, i didn't try too hard) I will be taking on the responsibilities of full-time-fiance-and-wedding-planner, professional-market-browser, shopper and quality-control-sampler-of-all-London-coffee-houses. Life is so tough. Other than those very taxing jobs I've signed myself up for - there are a few other things that I'm looking forward to - Photobucket

The weekend of my arrival, London is throwing a huge party in my honour, which means, of course - that I will be able to celebrate on the Thames with my good ol' pal, the Queen.Photobucket
I'm thinking... big floats, Union Jacks, fireworks and lots of marching soldiers in those woolly hat things. Just the way I like it.

Next on the list - International Magazines. You know the glossy kinds I'm talking about - Vogue... Harpers Bazaar... Hello....
and even better - UK bridal mags - Brides (which is under the same publication house as Vogue and Glamour), You and Your Wedding and Wedding Magazine for a start... I take my new jobs very seriously (See above).

Awesome shops. Awesome shopping - Photobucket

I'm pretty sure my coffee shop sampling job (quality-control) is going to pay very well and I will be able to afford a weekly shopping spree. Good thing my Fiance-Face works near this street and I will be forced to spend lots of time hanging around between Burberry, DonnaKaran, D&G, Christian Dior, Longchamp and Armani.  

Also on the agenda - visiting some quirky London Bars in the Soho district -Photobucket
I snapped this pic the last time I was in London - from Zebrano Bar on Carnaby Street.
Also I'm looking forward to ALL the streets and gardens and squares. Oxford, Picadilly, Knightsbridge, Regent Street, Waterloo, Portabello Road, Covent Gardens, Downing Street, Trafalgar square....

Now, even if we aren't able to sneak into, buy some tickets - we make our own Olympics. What? You've never heard of Olympic-drinking-leap-frog? It's a thing,Photobucket Photobucket
look at me in my green and gold.
Because who doesn't love Wimbledon season?!

Hyde park, Kensington Gardens, Wimbledon commons -
Fancy-fiance has even bought a killer picnic set (with real wine glasses) in anticipation of my arrival. ten points.

Camden Markets -
I love Camden. It's got good food, cozy pubs, awesome markets, good breakfast nooks, quirky bits-n-bobs and loads of punks. We like.


Hey London, see you Wednesday

Blake Kershaw said...

once again I am forced to step in and correct you blatent attempt at a lie... TENNIS CHAMP: thats utter rubish, you could'nt even win at roller pong squash let alone tennis. I mean the only thing you ever won was the honour of being the one to break like the biggest window in the house with a basket ball... How little coordination do you have to have to be able to accomplish that?

Blake Kershaw said...

WO thats crazy, one minute Im there next minute poof, gone. 

Che Strawberries said...
