It’s been a while since I have done a travel post! Last time I was in London (it has already been a month), my bf and I visited Kew Gardens, which is basically a huge park, home to the world’s largest collection of living plants. Kew Gardens is situated next to the Thames, in the neighborhood of Richmond. You can go there by tube, taking either the District Line or London Overground.
A few weeks ago, I was in London with my mom for my graduation.
The ceremony was nice, a bit boring at times. I was really excited to be wearing a gown and hat for the first time (it is not common in Austria).
While I was in London I did a tiny bit of shopping and one of my favorite shops to check out is Tiger. If you don’t know what Tiger is, it is a Danish store offering all kinds of
unnecessary bits and bobs. They sell everything from stationary to home- and kitchenware to food. Some of it is practical, must of the items are just fun.
Kenwood House is another hidden gem in Hampstead, London. A stunning neoclassical villa, newly renovated that is now open to the public.
This was my second time visiting Kenwood House as I wanted to show it to my mom. And both times it was raining.. How else could it be in England?
I hope you all survived the festivities! :)
A little while ago, my mom and I finally managed to find time to get a complimentary hand and arm massage at Jo Malone (I had received the invitation for my birthday in January). I took my mom with me for an afternoon of scent consultation and pampering with champagne. It was pure bliss and we both enjoyed it a lot! It was really nice to relax and be able to try all different kinds of perfumes and body crèmes. It was also interesting to learn about layering different Jo Malone fragrances. For my left arm I chose Black Bay body crème with Orange Blossom perfume and for my right arm, I tried Blue Agave body crème with Jasmine & Mint perfume. I really liked the combination on my right arm, the left one was a bit too fruity for my taste.
