Week Re-Cap

Another week, more adventures. I did a lot more exploring and on Saturday I took the train out to Bletchley Park {post coming soon}. Sunday I was going to see Churchill's house, Chartwell, but some train issues prevented that from happening! I settled on the Royal Botanic Gardens instead and was extremely pleased. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I had my internship so there wasn't a whole lot of exploring done but today my parents fly in! Tomorrow we head to Scotland for the weekend and I am so pumped about it! If you have any recomendations, snapchat me {hayden213}! How have y'all's weeks been? -xoxo darling, Hayden
 Celebrated a friends 21st birthday with brunch at Bill's.
 Found my new favorite department store: Liberty. 
 The Royal Arcade
 The Burlington Arcade
 The Duke of York Column
 Near Trafalgar Square
 Fortnum and Mason is absolutley whimsical. 
 Had a Kit Kat milkshake at Candy & Cream near King's Cross.
 Hung out with my girl Maggie at the National Portrait Gallery {via}.
 Couldn't resist sending this postcard to a friend! 
 After my Sunday plans were foiled by trains, I headed out to Kew Gardens 
& had a blast. The grass was my happy place.
 Note my sensible shoes...{via}.
 Monday night exploring with a friend at Regent's Park led to Baker Street.
 Dinner at Wahaca was ahhmazing on Tuesday night.
And last night we went to Ben's Cookies in Covent Garden!

A Rainy Museum Day

So I completely messed up and forgot today was Wednesday {this whole abroad/intern thing has me really messed up}. So tomorrow you will be getting the regular "Week Re-Cap" but today is all about museums in London. To be honest I am a complete museum nerd. I love them and whenever one is available I want to go...especially if the architecture of the museum is exciting. Which is why London is the perfect place for me! Without further ado, "A Rainy Museum Day":
For my travel writing class we have to do a round-up of something in London to create a guide for future students. So I got creative with mine & am doing the 7-8 most instagramable places in London. I started working on it a while ago and these are some of my possible locations/shots. It was raining all day & I wanted to get away from the downpour. What better way than to go to the Natural History Museum {despite its screaming children}, the V&A and stop by the house from The Parent Trap? They are all right next to each other {get off at the South Kensington stop} and provide a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle. After that it was to the Imperial War Museum which was one of my favorite things to do when I was little, it didn't disappoint again!-xoxo darling, Hayden.
 The Natural History Museum
 The Victoria & Albert
If you are going to the V&A you have to eat lunch or grab a snack in their cafe. All three rooms are gorgeous & they comprise the oldest museum restaurant in the world. 
The V&A garden.
 Christian Dior from the Fashion exhibit.
"Undressed" is an extra exhibit but it was totally worth it! 
I was seriously wishing Lindsey Lohan had been the day I went! 
 Flowers outside the Imperial War Museum.
 The exhibits are absolutely amazing, especially WWI. 
Also, the Holocaust exhibit will bring you to tears.

Linen Love

So I have fallen in love with this linen shirt {that I cannot find for y'all anywhere, so see the kind of similar ones below}. I wear it all the time especially during this study abroad program. I wore it on the blog before {here} but not in this capacity. We were in Daunt Books & Regent's Park so we decided to take some quick photos {excuse the iPhone photos}. Hope y'all have a linen shirt you love too-xoxo darling, Hayden.
