Living it up in London

Hi all, I know the last couple of months I've been pretty rubbish at posting. As you know I made the big move to London and life has been pretty hectic, between finding digs and then job hunting it's been pretty full on and if I'm honest haven't done any printing what so ever...sad times!
Now I'm feeling a bit more settled normal service will resume and I can get back to getting my print domination up and running. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been making the most of being in the big city and breaking out of island life. I'm not usually into new years resolutions but this year I did say with the move to London I wanted to make 2014 epic and have a go at lots of different things that I haven't had a chance to do in Jersey. So below are some snaps of what I've been up to, some awesome print inspiration in there as well!
I started off my new London life by seeing the 1975 at Brixton Academy (obviously!), which was amazing. As you can see by my face below I had the best time! The only downside was I left a creme egg in my handbag and it melted everywhere...not what should happen to a creme egg!

I love the V & A, so I have obviously been back for a little mooch. What's great about most of the museums in London is they are free, so if you're strapped for cash like I was before I got a job it's a great way to kill an afternoon!

The V& A always have the best patterns, as you can see below.

This is an amazing advert from China 1930s for cigarettes which I just loved.

Obviously, this is going sound stupid as London is full of amazing restaurants but I love love love Wagamama. I think a bit too much, I just can't beat a bit of Asian cuisine, I promise I will branch out to some of the other culinary delights London has to offer.

There was an obvious trip to another free museum the National Art gallery in Trafalgar Square, I just love the blue cock that sits there at the moment!

After all the rain we've had the past few weeks, it was nice to see the sunshine and sit in a park and just enjoy the greenery and calm within the hustle and bustle of the city....obviously a Krispy Kreme was obligatory!?!

Below is Geoff the squirrel, weird you may think that I specially took a picture of this beauty. Well in Jersey we only get little red squirrels so this was great to see. After I took this picture, he did run after us which was quite worrying....

Another doughnut, not as interesting but I thought I would post as myself and my bestie agreed if I was a doughnut this is what I'd look like.

Another freebie mueseum trip, this time to the British Museum. I have never been here before so it was so much fun exploring all the different wings. I especially loved the Egyptian section that had mummies, which is a bit gross but also strangely cool!

Below is a book from the gift shop that had a very intricate and beautiful cover.

So now you know what I have been doing with myself the past of couple of weeks....I'm looking forward to lots more London adventures, including going to a roller disco.
Whilst writing, I must also mention the little one, who obviously couldn't make it out to London and is being spoilt by her Nana. The beautiful Pearl remains in Jersey with her partner in crime Jackson, I already miss her like crazy and can't wait to be reunited with the little critter.
Lots of Love
