Let’s See Where The Night Takes Us

Let’s See Where The Night Takes Usfeatured

January 22 2015

Want to start by saying thank you very much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. I woke up feeling pretty ancient at the grand old age of 21. This was confirmed by my parents, whom kindly gifted me furniture and a barbecue for my new house in Florida. Thanks Mum & Dad!

Favourite places in London, part 2. Let’s do this. DSC_1291DSC_1293The ultimate store. You know those tv episodes where people get locked into a department store and have to spend the night there? I dream of being locked inside Liberty. DSC_1302Popped home for a quick outfit change before stopping by The Churchill Arms in Notting Hill. One of the prettiest restaurants around. Shame about the white van ruining the shot.  DSC_1390Tower of London by night. Who went to see the poppies last year? I wish I had been home to visit. My school visited the Tower of London at least 5 times between the ages of 8-12. At the time I felt we could really do with some variation, spice up your life! Oh the memories.DSC_1324DSC_1376Touristing it up at Tower Bridge. The cyclist in the above photo looks embarrassed on my behalf.

Outfit chat. I was going for a festive theme, hence the sparkles. Dress is (on sale!) here. This trench coat is a fave of mine. But if you’re looking for something more bank friendly, click here.

Back to the reason for the visit to Tower Bridge. The opening. DSC_1308DSC_1313Ta-da! So pretty!

I’m predicting that the favourite places in London posts will be an ongoing thing. These last two posts were just what I managed to fit into one action packed day. Who knows.. This time next year we could be at part 41.

    This should be an ongoing thing, because everyone knows London is the best city in the world!

    London, for me, is the less travelled path. The Tower of London, Buck Palace, Albert Bridge, they are the ‘known’ face of London. When I lived there, I loved going to the parts that tourist’s didn’t flock – the ‘real’ face of London. When I go back with people not from London, I always, always take them to what I describe as ‘London without the glitz; without the make-up’. I love the city. I lived it for many years, but I know it’s unforgiving and isn’t always bright lights and glamour.

    Your photos are wonderful. Vivid. With my first proper pay packet (back in the day when you did actually get an envelope with money, not a slip of paper with a load of numbers on it) I went to Liberty’s to buy a wallet so I could feel like a proper, grown-up young man! I bought the wallet, went outside and discovered I’d spent all my money on the wallet – I didn’t have anything to put in to it! Still, I felt like a proper man…!

    Look forward to next instalment in anticipation!!!

    Nice post and pictures, Laura.

    I used to work at Saint Katherine’s Dock right next to the bridge and Tower of London. Hope you get well soon and start playing again.

    “I woke up feeling pretty ancient at the grand old age of 21. This was confirmed by my parents, whom kindly gifted me furniture and a barbecue ” – loved this line by the way, made me laugh a lot :D
    And seeing as you’re going to be living in Florida, you’re gonna be a ‘Murican in no time soon! (Please don’t lose your britishness haha!)
    Keep up the good posts

    Hello, I am a fan of Maria Sharapova and I create a video with other fans to show her our support before the French Open, in May. I will like to make her a true surprise and to arrive so that people whom she knows personally are on this video. I want your participation ! :)
    The video that each person will make for my assembly must last maximum 20 seconds. One should not speak (music will be added), and it is necessary to be filmed holding a paper (or several by making them ravel) where a message of support will be written.
    Would you have the possibility of sending your video to me so that I can integrate it into the assembly?
    That would be really formidable. A video of fan, it is rather classical, but a video of fan with people that the person really knows, that it is brilliant. And, I will adore to have the possibility of doing something of brilliant for her.
    Think you of having also the possibility of asking to other people of her entourage, other friends, her team, her parents… Who you want in fact, you know her well better than me!!!
    You surely will think that I am a little insane, but so much worse. I do not have anything to lose to try, and if it goes, Maria will have had a pretty smile by looking at the video, and that is worth all the gold of the world!
    Sorry for my bad English, I am French.
    my email : musicpkcdlf@hotmail.com
    See you soon… I hope
