Not only has summer been playing tricks with me, but it also leaves unnoticed to come back as large amounts of pouring rain. I'm a sunshine lover, so cold summers are the worst for me.
It's like having your hope crushed after a whole year of waiting.
Summers in this part of Europe are deceiving.
But still, no reason to complain, as this is only about weather.
At least I get to wear my new leather jacket already.

This shots were taken during one of the warmer days.
I wanted to wear my new black maxi skirt and gladiator sandals ones more before saying good bye.

London

Photobucket

So finally I've put myself to edit the pictures from my London trip.
As always I had a hard time choosing. We didn't take that much photos, but still...
I decided not to divide them into different posts, as I'm a bit behind on my posting schedule.

Visiting London was an incredible experience, as this was my first time.
The trip only proved that four days in a major city are not enough to see all you want.
But still, with a great guide that my bf is, we still managed to see a lot.
The first trip was to Topshop, our Hotel was located close to Oxford street.
Oh, boy! I can't even describe what I felt. I wanted to buy all of it! After 2 hours in there I managed to spend 1/3 of my four days budget on a dream leather jacket from Lipsy.
I was on a mission to buy one + good shoes.
You'll be seeing it a lot in the future.

We, kind of on purpose, skipped Browns, Selfridges and designer boutiques, because I didn't want to get my heart broken, as it always happens in those places. Me having almost a break down before the D&G store, where all of the magical colored leopard items were hanging, only proved me right.
We did tourist stuff like going to Big Ben & BP palace. We've seen Portobello and Covent Garden.
On the last day we went to Camden. It was a sunday, so there were a huge amount of people, which made it hard to see stores. I was exhausted anyway. We mostly saw the Stables market, which I liked a lot. I wish we had more time to see it all.
We've seen the Six Shooters exhibition in Proud Camden. Photographs of rock stars taken by six different photographers. All of them were pretty impressive, especially some life footage, as it is the hardest part of band photography.

Paying a visit to Somerset House was a must, because the Martin Margiela exhibit was running there.
I missed this one in Belgium, so I didn't want to miss it twice.
For me it was really like home coming. I recently did a project around MMM's work, so I'm quiet familiar with all it's aspects. This is one of the best exhibitions I saw and the location was much better than our Fashion Museum.
Unfortunately it was forbidden to take pictures there, so I can't share that beauty with you.

London Dungeon was fun too, especially for the lovers of spooky things.
The gift shop afterwards was a nice reward too.

On the first night we also visited a pop-up burlesque show from the Tassel Club at Salon D'ete.
This was certainly one of the most magic nights out ever! The location took you back to London of 1930's, the acts were marvelous and the cocktails too!

This trip was one to remember, for sure! I hope to go back soon.

Squirrels! I'm a major squirrel addict. We don't have squirrels in parks here, so I was like a kid who saw snow for the first time. Running around, feeding them my Twix.
