A Day in London

IMG_3248IMG_3266IMG_3273IMG_3269

After spending nine days traveling around England, the only regret I have is not spending a longer time in London. One day is simply not long enough to see and do everything that the massive city has to offer. However, I am pretty proud of the amount of stuff we fit in in that one day. We started off the day in an Imperial War museum and from there we decided to hop on a bus to take us to the west end of London. We spent some of the day hunting for the best scones in London (The best we had was at the Waldorf Hotel!) and going into all the stores Covent Garden had to offer. We ended the day on a bus doing a final loop of the city so we could see everything we missed when walking.  While we were on the bus everyone was so excited because we were supposed to pass Buckingham Palace and just as we were about to approach it the bus driver turned the other way. Probably the biggest disappointment of the day because we were SO CLOSE!

So that was our twenty-four hours in London. I am not a city person but I loved London. I loved that so many people were walking around or riding bikes (SO many bikes) and that since the city was so huge there is always places to go and things to see. Now I am looking forward to going back some day because there is so much more I want to see and do.

Books That Have Me Wishing Summer Was Here Already

img_2822img_2823img_2825I love the winter and cold weather but by February when mother nature is giving us glimpses of warm weather I suddenly find myself wishing for summer. With spring approaching pretty fast I decided to compile a list of books that I love to read whilst sitting on my deck enjoying the warm weather. Comment down below and tell me what summer books are your favorite!

Summer Sister by Judy Blume– When I read this book I honestly did not think I would like it so I was surprised when I found myself unable to put it down. Since reading it I have reread it every summer and it seriously puts me in the summery mood.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson– This book makes me wish I could spend my whole summer following a list my friend gave me. I would never be bored, which sounds pretty exciting. The challenges are fun and weird and it is the perfect book to sit on the deck and read.

Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland– Why I decided to read this during the winter… I have no idea. A summer romance can’t not make you wish summer was here.

With Malice by Eileen Cook– A summer mystery will really make you wish you were back on the beach tanning and reading.

Wanderlost by Jen Malone– I know that I talk about this book all the time but it is one of my absolute favorites. A book about summer romance and traveling. How can you not love it?

I am sorry if this post made you really sad that summer is not here and you have to go to school tomorrow. It made me sad just writing it. I am not saying these books will make it better…they are not magic!! But maybe reading them will make you forget that it is actually five degrees out instead of ninety.

 

 

 

Summer Shoes

               You find these shoes here
            
                  You can find these here
     
       Hello everyone! I hope you guys had a wonderful Fourth of July! There should be a post about that soon. I went on vacation for the holiday and it was such a great time! Comment down below what you guys did for the holiday. 
       So usually during the summer all I like to wear are my rainbow sandals. I have had them for a couple of years and they have held up great! These are by far my favorite summer shoes and it is mostly because of how comfy they are. (But do not worry they are pretty cute looking too!) I thought that I would share it with you guys. I can wear these shoes with anything except for fancy occasions. If I want to go somewhere fancy I wear my Jack Rogers. These shoes are also really comfortable. (You can see how important comfort is to me!) 
         I hope this helped anyone who is looking for shoes to buy this summer. I am obsessed with both of these shoes and I hope you like them too. These shoes come in different styles so if you don’t like the ones shown above then check out their websites to look for different styles!

                                                                                                               Bye for now,
                                                                                                                                Leigh
