Hello guys! I am currently writing this post on the plane to Thailand - the past couple of weeks have been pretty busy! So there’s a lot to catch up on.
Last week I went to Portugal with my best bud Ruby; we spent the first few days exploring Lisbon and the next few days at Nos Alive Festival which was crazy amazing. Ideally I’d love to fill you in on my Portugal trip now, but I have yet to get the photos developed, so instead I thought I’d wait and do a post on what I got up to the week before that, along with my Festival Essentials List! Enjoy.
Going back two weeks ago now I went to the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A with Ruby (I do have other friends, I promise!) The clothes were beautiful, and whilst personally I found a lot of them too avant-garde for daily wear there were elements I would love to incorporate into my day to day outfits, like the abundance of lace and fierce shoulder pads. There was also an extra element of fun added to the exhibition as photography was apparently banned so we spent the majority of our time there in stealth mode – silently snapping pictures and evading the security guards. Although I must say that Ruby captured most of the photos as I lack the stealth needed for such matters (I’d make a terrible spy), and preferred to watch the security guards practically chase Ruby through the exhibit whilst chuckling silently to myself. However, at one point I did whip out my phone to take a cheeky picture for instagram and practically felt like a fully fledged outlaw – yes I like to live on the edge.
