Bye For Now

Two months is a long time. But it is also a short amount of time. You have time to become {basically} a local. But you leave behind things you wish you could have gotten to. You have this attatchement to a city that you aren't sure when you'll be back to. You know what they call to-go food & how to be a nice person on the public transportation. But you have a little empty space in your heart when you leave because of the phenomenal time you had and the amazing people you met. You are probably extremely excited to go home {because of your family, friends, BBQ, bagels & breakfast tacos}, but that means the end of something incredibly special.
So as I sit typing this out to y'all at Heathrow, I feel bittersweet. London has been so good to me. Arcadia University has been so good to me. My friends {shoutout to you Sierra, Natalie, Savannah, Isabella & Timmy} have been so nice to me. And every stranger I met has been great to me. I will always love London and it will always hold a special spot in my heart-xoxo darling, Hayden.
P.S. I was tasked with making a video of 1-second a 
day for my program. This is my version {it doesn't include 
every day because sometimes I forgot, but it is a 
pretty good representation of my trip}.

Plane Clothes

Instead of today's normal "Articles I'm Reading" post I thought I would share what I will be wearing on my 8+ hour flight home on Sunday {*cries*}. I am all about comfort on long flights so I am opting for an old but super comfy Ralph Lauren long sleeve shirt, Nike running shorts, Nike sneakers, a fleece jacket, and a baseball cap. I figure the baseball cap will either cover my face as I nap or end up in my backpack because I am annoyed with it {we'll see how it goes}. As for where we took the photos, we were on the North Bank, across from the Shard, the HMS Belfast, and Tower Bridge. 
Tune back Sunday for my {slightly emotional} post about leaving London-xoxo darling, Hayden.
P.S. What do y'all wear on the plane?

Week Re-Cap

I cannot believe that I have less than a week left in London, it seems like it was just yesterday that I had arrived {it has been over two months}. But I have been having a blast these past few days. I was still with Hannah for a majority of this past week so we did a LOT. Including, but not limited to, tea, the Cliffs of Dover, and Notting Hill. Then Sierra & I went into high tourist mode starting Sunday to make sure we get the most out of our last week. Today I am having lunch with my boss from my interhsip and then we are headed to Greenwich to explore {again}. Thursday we are going to Windsor Castle & then the Serpentine Galleries + a classy dinner because it is Sierra's last night! I am not entirely sure what I will be up to Friday and Saturday but I will be on a really long plane ride home on Sunday...tune back in on Friday for what I will be wearing on that ridiculously long flight. What are y'all up to? -xoxo darling, Hayden
