I got back from my London trip on wednesday night and now I finally get to posting a few pics for you :)
We went straight for afternoon tea at the Orangery in Kensington - lovely place but reasonably priced, and they have great passion fruit tarts (:
A really fat squirrel we met in Kensington Gardens (though this perspective actually makes it look slim :P). It actually ended up jumping on my friend's bag!
Another favourite place for tea: the Caffè Concerto (yummy fruit tarts!)
I know it seems like i have done nothing but ... I just love taking pics of sweets and pastries (: Ok, maybe I had a few cakes too much as well... But anyway, the main purpose (for me) was to go and see Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to Phantom of the Opera: Love Never Dies at the Adelphi Theatre. But first, a pic of Trafalgar square shortly after sunset:
The Adelphi Theatre. For those interested, you can read my review of the show here: http://phantomessoftheopera.blogspot.com
I am also a fan of the Sherlock Holmes stories, so I went to the Sherlock Holmes museum in Baker Street:
Harrod's is one of my fave places in London - such pretty things and amazingly decorated as well! There's also Lola's which makes a large selection of beautiful cupcakes:
I love this (:
Harrod's Food Hall
My cupcakes arrived slightly battered but still alive!
I also took the opportunity to go for a good pointe shoe fitting in Drury Lane in the Westend and ended up with a pair of Grishko 2007's. They are actually quite comfy (considering they're pointes)...
Whenever I go to London, I bring back loads of food as well. Yesterday, my brother and sister came to our place and we had a lovely afternoon tea with all the cakes I brought (:
Sooo, and now for today's make up! I did a look based off this picture, but I went a little overboard with the side stripes, sorry!
