London Spring

One of the things I love about being born in London is that there is just so much to do. We have some gorgeous parks, historical sights and great architecture to indulge in. I live close to to Hampstead Heath and really enjoy taking walks there when the weather is nice. This particular part of the city has remained the same for so long. Unlike the glass structures and modern fixtures you see everywhere we still see old buildings, red phone boxes and other things that are typically British.

The other day I was taking an afternoon walk around Hampstead on a cooler spring day. I decided that as it was drizzling I would pull on some lighter items and celebrate the spring that way. It’s the time of year when although the sun is out and the weather is hot we still have wet and dreary days. I pulled on these fun pearl jeans from Evans Clothing. My thought was that i’d wear something casual and easy. When it comes to denim you just can’t go wrong!

Along side the jeans I thought I’d pull on this baby blue off the shoulder sweater from Navabi. This top is also available in peachy Apricot but with blue being my favourite colour there really was no choice lol. I thought i’d wear a simple pair of converse sneakers and a white denim jacket to finish things off. One thing London could be famous for is unpredictable weather so at times you have to be prepared for all eventualities.

The funny thing is I have lived in London my entire life and some things never get old! Since the rise of mobile phone usage you pretty much would never see a phone box anywhere but the traditional red ones have been left in place. Some of them have random plants and things placed inside. This one I stumbled across still worked which is a rare thing to see in the city!

London is my home town. I was born here and have never lived anywhere else. So many people come to my city and fall in love with the place. When you grow up somewhere like this it’s easy to overlook the gorgeous architecture, history and splendour. Such a diverse place to live bursting with life and madness lol. With the run up to the Royal wedding one can’t help but be surrounded by all things British and enjoy it!

The London Bridge Experience and Tombs This Halloween

It’s Halloween and many of us have mixed views about the holiday. Some see today as a time to remember those we have lost, some see it as a time to just let loose and have some childlike fun and others decide to make this a time full of family fun for the kids. I’m personally not a huge fan of the holiday but I do like to see the creative and fun costumes and fun makeup that people tend to wear. It’s the one time of the year where people of any age can dress up without any inhibitions or discomfort and eat tons and tons of candy!

As you can imagine there are loads of fun parties and events all over town and I happen to know some great things to do tonight! The Entertainer have a series of amazing offers and attractions everyone can enjoy right here in London. As a member of their online Squad I was recently asked to come and film a short clip at The London Bridge Experience and Tombs. On a hot summers evening I went through the attraction in total darkness and all on my own! I have to say I did get a little bit of a fright at times. Having said that, I think we all like a little bit of harmless fun from time to time even to be scared just a little…

In the run up to the holiday many attractions and venues have been working towards their fright night specials. Usually fright night allows patrons the chance to enjoy extra scary and lengthy periods of horror filled fun with many twists and unexpected turns. If you haven’t found something fun to do check out the app and see what they have to offer.

Here’s a little bit of what happened when I was greeted by ghouls and ghosts in the heart of London Bridge!

 

In honour of a musical classic and in the perfect theme of the Halloween, here’s a favourite of mine by Michael Jackson:

Happy Halloween everyone!
