London Day 1 & 2

On June 13th, my grandma and I took an overnight flight to London, England! Having felt anxious for the 7 hour flight, we made it around 6 am London time and as soon as I got there, I felt refreshed. The airport even had cute coffee shops that I would see in vlogs. FYI they offered me a drink on the flight, I am 18 so it is considered legal in England, but I opted for tea.

After an insane drive and a 2 hour nap, we had tea planned at the restaurant in our hotel. To my surprise, it was one of those fancy hotels, because I am so used to Holiday Inns that I never knew what it was like to stay at a very fancy hotel. This hotel is thanks to the tour company that we used, Tauck, and they treated us like royalty.

It was rather weird being an American and viewing England’s very proper attitude and that such being a customer they literally treated like I was the Queen, only I can wish. The food is so different that I ate about 3 cucumber and cream cheese sandwich slices, I am at least trying. I got the Hibiscus Tea which was not too strong or bitter for my liking so I quite enjoyed it. I especially loved the centerpieces, especially the flowers and I have also learned that I am not a big fan of jelly. The dress I wore to tea if from Free People.

Our hotel was in the Marble Arch neighborhood so we decided to find it and we did not realize how close we were to Hyde Park! So our effort to stay awake was to walk walk around the city so we, I mean I, came with the idea to go to Madame Tussaud’s . I had to see the Zalfie wax figures of course! I texted my mom the picture and she actually thought that I had met them, sadly I did not ūüė¶ .

We headed back for the hotel so my grandma fell asleep while I watched the people from out hotel window. Other than having a cereal bar for dinner, I really enjoyed the first night in London because it was so magical to me.

DAY 2

The second day started bright and early because we had to catch a bus to head to Harry Potter Studios of course! I am a huge Harry Potter fan and a movie fan so going there was a complete dream! I might move to England to work for a film company, but that is just an idea for now.

Here are the few of many photos I took and I highly suggest going even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, it was so cool to see how everything was created. I even rode a broom in the green screen room which I am not to sure if I am allowed to upload but if I am, it will possibly be up on a vlog. Ravenclaw for life!

After we left, we took a walk through Hyde Park and towards Harrods, legit the biggest place I have ever seen. Instead of buying anything, we ended having the most delicious ice cream in the cutest shop that gave me an idea to having my own ice cream shop.

Just look how yummy the ice cream looks! I do not really count my steps, but in total we walked 7 miles, gotta keep up my summer bod!

Hurricane | OOTD

Last week, I had gone to Charleston to visit the school and a few family members. Charleston is literally one of my favorite places to visit and I encourage any one to go there. For me, I am really into history and cute little towns and being from Annapolis this is hopefully a future home for me. It gives me the vibes of being home but at the same time, its warmer and there is more to do and see.

We drove in during a hurricane from Columbia, hence the title and my favorite Halsey song, it was sunny as soon we got there. It was quite windy, not always a good idea to wear a dress when it is, so I wrapped my hair band around the skirt of the dress to keep it from flying up so it is better to have it high on my thigh rather than everyone seeing everything right! I always tend to wear skirts and dresses on the worst day possible to wear them.

 

I absolutely love this dress because it reminds me so much of Free People but at a much cheaper price. It was very flowy and bohemian and great for the spring time weather. I wore my mighty converse to be comfortable for most of the time while walking. And yes I am wearing a bralette because it is comfortable for the long day I was going to have and it gives it more of a boho feel to it.

Dress: Target
Shoes: Converse
Bralette: Aerie

Homecoming 2015

My last ever homecoming dance was last week and I had the most fun time ever! We had taken pictures, went out to dinner and tried to get to the dance fashionably late to seem cool, since we’re seniors, but only ended up 5 minutes after the dance had started.

For my dress, I wanted something more sophisticated and mature since I am 18 for Pete’s sake. I picked this dress from Free People with white under lay with blue lace. I choose suede gray heels because I felt like it would look amazing and it is different.

Trend Alert: Boho Babe

My favorite trend for the summer season is boho. Boho is a type of style that I was unsure about because I felt like most pieces that people put together rather tend to clash. Recently I have jumped on the boho train and I absolutely love this new type of style. As seen on stars like Vanessa Hudgens, this trend usually gets big right after Coachella. I find that this style can be a bit romantic and fun with the patterns. Here are a few of my favorite outfits!

I feel like this style is all about experimenting, like it is really hard to find a way to make Birkenstocks look cute! I

To get into this style, many stores supply Bohemian and Coachella style prints located at stores such as American Eagle, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, Free People and many more to get you ready for festival season!

Easter Outfit 2014

Spring has finally arrived to central Maryland! As I have mentioned in the earlier post that I will be uploading a post on my outfit for Easter! I have recently worn this outside to my best friend’s Sweet 16 and I thought it was very Spring like for Easter. I actually got this dress last year to wear this day but since I was the self-conscious freshman last year, I decided not to. This year I am confident and I have been wearing it proudly on my shoulders! I absolutely love the colors as they are all bright and very spring like! My dress is a pastel and I absolutely love how it “shows off my curves” if I can say that. The plunging back stopped me last year but this year it makes a bit of a statement as you can say :). Below is a video that my mother helped film which did not come out as well as I hoped but please enjoy!
