snapshots: HAUNTED HAYRIDE

let's get haunted

Halloween is hands down one of my favorite holidays! It’s a yearly tradition with my friends to go to the Haunted Hayride and have a pumpkin carving competition and this year was no exception. We had such a blast!!!! Here’s some pics from our night.

P.S. My pumpkin won 1st place. BOOYAH.

SNAPSHOTS: LONDON TRAVELS ♥

I may not have been many places in my certified “good girl” life, but I’m callin’ it that London may be one of my favorite places ever for a very long time for 3 reasons.

  1. Every single person is so insanely friendly it actually makes me want to strive to be a better person.
  2. You get to drink out of a treasure chest. (explanation below)
  3. One of the few places where you can experience the feeling of being somewhere completely new and exciting without having complete culture shock due to language barrier. Colt and I collected all sorts of new terminology we love to annoy our friends back home with: flat vs. apartment, gettin’ punchy (a sort of aggressive partying), and mate!
Here’s a few pics from my days in Londontown.

London Scenery

Just arrived! Taken on the drive from the airport to the Grosvenor House hotel.

Wine and Fruit

A beautiful welcome of aged white wine and fresh fruit to kickstart the trip.

Savile Row

It was so awesome to see Savile Row where some of the biggest designers and tailors got their start.

Architecture

More amazing architecture.

Oxford Circus

Incredible shopping at Oxford Circus.

Gieves and Hawkes

So proud of Colt! His first fitting at Gieves and Hawkes – who make all the royal uniforms for the Royal Family, British Army, and Royal Navy.

Treasure chest

Definitely a highlight of the trip – dancing our FACES OFF at Mahiki. Clubbing in London is a whole new experience: it’s actually FUN! Here we are drinking champagne infused with tropical fruits out of a treasure chest. A TREASURE CHEST.

Old Friends

Old Friends.

New Friends

New Friends.

Diva moment.

Made him carry my bag. Having a diva moment. He loves it.

Victoria + albert museum

There’s just something about a day at the museum in a new country that really makes you feel like you’ve soaked up some of its true history and glory. You leave feeling more connected to the people, with a better understanding of who they are and how we can relate on one universally beautiful thing: art. Art comes in all cultures and is such a window into the soul of the people. Here’s some pics from our few hours at the Victoria and Albert Museum (or called the V&A for short) .

A good tip for haphazard tourists like me.

Ed and Colt

We had the best tour guide and new friend, Mr. Ed H! Thanks Ed for the lovely day.

Love the ornate gothic look.

The original beanie for royal hipsters.

Not sure..

Where Coachella kids got their style.
