Sunny Saturdays | Hyde Park

I refuse to waste a sunny day, especially as 90% of the week is spent in the office. So today I decided to explore Hyde Park (should've hung around until tonight, I could've made Swifty my best friend!)
As predicted, it was absolutely gorgeous! There were people picnic-ing, sunbathing, cycling...and boating of course. I was truly in my element walking around taking it all in, and feeling pretty chuffed that I can call this city home. London...I really do love you!

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty at the V&A


On Friday morning, before the doors even opened to public, I was inside London's V&A museum for an exclusive tour of the Alexander McQueen exhibition with his biographer, Judith Watts. There's been a lot of hype surrounding this exhibition so I knew it was going to be good, I underestimated just how good though.

I like fashion but I'll be the first to admit I will rarely be interested in designer shows and high-end fashion mags but with Alexander McQueen, there's something different. After learning more about his life it's evident he was a unique talent, and the way he combined fashion with nature led to outstanding one-off pieces. Not to mention his catwalk shows...mesmerising! 

I don't know whether it's the tragic way he died, or the darkness surrounding his inspiration, but I found the exhibition completely compelling and at times, quite dramatic.

For the whole time I was in there, I was drawn in to absolutely everything that was happening around me, and the work that must have gone into producing such an enchanting experience is evident. It was truly amazing!

Savage Beauty is only on until August 2nd so I strongly recommend you get yourself a ticket before it's too late! Click here to buy online from the V&A.
