London Photo Diary

It’s every girl’s dream to jet off to a glamorous European city for the weekend.  And that’s just what I did before Thanksgiving!  I am so lucky to have wonderful parents who take me to beautiful places.  I got to shop, see my family, and explore a gorgeous city that I hadn’t been to in a long time…

IMG_9201More like “you used to call me on a payphone,” amiright, Drake?

IMG_8334Since there’s no Thanksgiving in the UK, they put up their Christmas decorations even earlier.  I’m not complaining!

IMG_8354It snowed for about an hour on Saturday morning!

IMG_8362Breakfast in bed was just a box of Laduree macaron.

IMG_8372Hyde Park has the most awesome, enormous Winter Wonderland, which is part carnival, part amusement park (apparently these are different things), and part Christmas market!

IMG_8381Looks like a regular carousel, right?

IMG_8378Just kidding, its a bar.  And it really does spin, which made it even harder to carry my mulled wine!

IMG_8383Loved all the little Christmas shops!

IMG_8577Perks of jet lag: actually being awake to see gorgeous sunrises.

IMG_8536The streets in our neighborhood were straight out of Mary Poppins.  I was in love!

IMG_8551The ultimate English brunch: milky tea, hot scones with jam and clotted cream.
