I've been meaning to share these behind the scenes photos with you since I first posted my very muddy photo shoot with Daisy Rain, but I just haven't found the moment to get them all polished up. Daisy and I have been told how similar we look since she joined my secondary school in the year below, and whilst we personally don't see a huge resemblance, others have told us otherwise. It probably didn't help back then that we both had long reddish hair... Either way, you be the judge!
I have fallen for London, and I have fallen hard. The weekend just gone was so lovely, not just because of the Casting Call, but because it was so nice having a weekend alone with Grant in such a fantastic place. I figured it was only fitting that I shared a few of my photos with you.
On Saturday morning we had brunch at Creme de la Crepe in Covent Garden (see above photos), and it was so good! I had a 'Milkybar Kid' crepe (white chocolate and fresh strawberries - heaven!) and a melon and strawberry smoothie. It was the perfect place to just chill out for half an hour before we started our day's adventures. Not to mention it's great value for money...
Whilst in Covent Garden, it seemed rude not to visit Ladurée. Their macarons are my vice. I know that they really are quite expensive for what they are, but as soon as I've taken a peek in the window I really can't help myself. I bought a box of eight; two rose, two vanilla, two salted caramel, and two pistachio and marshmallow. An indulgent little treat for myself and another Ladurée bag for the collection!
A few days earlier, we had found out that one of our friends from college was also in London with her new boyfriend for a gig. We hadn't seen her since August last year, so it seemed like a great opportunity to meet up. They'd been planning to visit the Natural History Museum, and since we'd also been considering a visit it became our meeting place of choice. It's such an amazing building, and after splurging on my macarons the free entry was definitely appreciated.
We took a wonder around the exhibitions, stopping every now and again to peer into glass cases full of gemstones. One of my favourite things about this place really is the architecture. The interior is just stunning.
