For London's sake!

A little bit of London to spice up anyone's Sunday. xx

For the Love of London

27 Mar 2015


As many of you know—through word of mouth Instagram #sorrynotsorry—I have been a busy little bee as of late. Only a few days after returning from Chamonix, I kissed my love goodbye and set off on my first ever SOLO international adventure.

THE PLAN: London —> Paris —> London.

THE OBJECTIVE: to cuddle with my friends (new and old).

My four-ish days spent in London were very low-key. I meandered around the city, stayed in with the girls, ate at neighborhood gems, and frankly, I just enjoyed the ease and convenience of Angel. With only a three day regroup between Chamonix and London, and a VERY lively Paris weekend on the horizon, I knew I wanted, scratch that!— needed, to take it easy.

STILL, London is my city, and I'll be DAMNED if I don't soak up every last second of the beautiful chaos while I was there.

I've selected just a handful of photos that I captured while around town... Yes, there will be more coming! It was so nice to feel the vibrancy of the city again. It is something that can not be replicated, and it is something that will always be truly missed.

Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

14 Nov 2014

888,246 ceramic poppies. Each poppy represent a soldier's life lost during the First World War.

Of course, I waited until the very last minute to visit the poppies at the Tower of London—and I paid the price for it.

A few things: It was über crowded. It was raining. The Lord's Mayor Show was the same day. Public transportation was all jacked-up and diverted, ANDDD on top of everything else, it was the last Saturday of the installation, so EVERYONE and their mother (or just other procrastinators like me) were trying to catch a glimpse—or take a photoshoot—of the amazing Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation.

Week Thirty-Eight & Nine | Team Carpenter Takes London

6 Jul 2014

James and I only beat the Carpenters to London by about four hours. Our Stateside weekend had come and gone in a flash and now we were back to "normal" life. James quickly showered and skirted off to work while I awaited our guests' arrival and straightened up the flat a bit.

London Eye Experience

3 Jul 2014

Our time with the Carpenters in London was FILLED with new adventures, but due to James' work schedule, it was typically just Mike, Lisa and me exploring during the day and then we would meet up with James for dinner at night. 

It's not every day you celebrate your 31st 21st birthday in London, (ahem, Happy Birthday Miss Lisa!), so in honor of Lisa's birthday, the Carpenters decided to live it up! Like literally... up in the air... Hello? Are you following me??

Abbey Road | Team Cigary Takes London

20 Jun 2014

When our friends Erika and Jesse mentioned they wanted to visit Abbey Road, I knew it was something I was going to be a part of. It's been on my bucket list, but it was just a little bit out of the way for me, so it was perfect timing for me to get around to it.
