first week in London

So seeing as I don’t remember a great amount from that first week, I decided to put a few days into one post.

Sadly, I managed to get sick the second day and ended up with a sore throat and a terrible cough. But let me say, I absolutely loved my blackcurrant cough drops! I think we need some here! However, despite feeling a bit under the weather I still went shopping in Camden with one of the girls who’s practically from the same town as I am (just a few minutes away from each other) and then we went to the Sports Cafe, even though I’m really not a fan of going to bars and clubs. It was fun though and strangely enough, they played American music most of the night, but the only song I knew the words to was by Jessie J.

Made a quick stop at McDonald's before getting on the bus back home. (One of Tori's photos, hopefully she doesn't mind me using them!)

The next day I was back to class with fashion photography. I had the same teacher for this class as well and practically all the same people were in the class! That night Tony, who took us on the tour of the city, would be taking us on a Hidden Pub Crawl. Our first stop was at the Cittie of Yorke, it really was lovely place!

Cider and black!

Next we went to The Knights Templar, I didn’t take any pictures in there, but the bathrooms were so cool as strange as that might sound. Also when we were in the bathroom, a woman started talking to a few of us, commenting on our accents. She said that she knew my accent was from Ohio, but I think she may have been just a bit drunk!

After that we went to The Old Bank of England, which is supposedly where Sweeney Todd’s barber shop and Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop once were.

Lastly, we went to Olde Chesire Cheese, Mark Twain and Charles Dickens are said to have been regulars.

Thursday was my first day of my internship at a hair and makeup school! Everyone was so nice! I ran a few errands and then got done quite early so I decided to spend some time in Regents Park while I waited for my class later that day. I could not get over how wonderful the weather was, such lovely sunshine! It certainly wasn’t very “London like”.

That Friday I went with a few of the girls to famous Portobello Market! I just loved it! Walking through Notting Hill was so cool! All of the shops were wonderful and I was especially excited to find an All Saints and Jack Wills along the street! I believe I somehow resisted buying anything this trip, but I definitely returned later on! We even saw the actress Anna Chancellor while we were there!

All Saints! Thanks to Katy for this one!

An extremely delicious strawberry & nutella crepe! Thanks to Tori for this photo!

So that’s the round up of my first week! Now onto the weekend!
