Brixton Village

29 September 2017

I’ve made no secret of my dislike for London in the past but my opinion has changed ever so slightly. The only times I've gone to London I went alone for events, got incredibly lost and felt very overwhelmed which is something I don’t often feel. Due to these experiences London has left a bad taste in my mouth. However, I was recently in London with the girls to do research for uni while fashion week was on. We only stayed for one night and amongst all the street style, exhibition visits and accidentally attending a Simone Rocha event we managed some down time too. Adele and I stayed with a friend of mine who lives in Brixton. While we were walking from Chris’ flat to the station we stumbled upon Brixton village which was absolutely gorgeous and super indie. We went for breakfast at ….. Adele had pancakes, said they were the best she's ever had and she's eaten a lot of pancakes and i had a full english which was 100% the fanciest full english I've ever had. 

We had a wander around the independent stores that we open before we sadly had to leave and continue on with exhibition visits for uni. I’ll be heading back to London at the end of October with Lewis for a Nu Skin event which I’m really excited about and I’m also, for once, excited to visit London again.

The images above show exactly what we've been doing for the last week, painting each others faces, again for uni. We have to do 6 makeup looks each and have been running about the flat like mad women organising and shooting the images. you haven't lived until you’re peeling leotard print duct tape off your body in the shower at 1am or scraping lip gloss out of your brows. Third year is definitely upon us but we’re helping each other out through the breakdowns as always. We’ve realised that this time next year we’ll be in our final year and will only have one left year in our beautiful flat. This fills me with sadness so we’re making the most of it while we have it before we have to do grown up things like pay council tax and sort out lives out.
