ARCHER’S FIRST TRIP TO LONDON

London

So on Monday we took Archer to London..for the very first time, and it was pretty exciting. Especially as I havent been to London since I was 20 weeks pregnant. I was getting some major withdrawal. I love how inspired I feel even just walking around London. I always come back feeling super charged and wanting to grab my camera or a paint brush! I think London is by far one of my favourite cities, and I love that it’s just a short train ride away! We spent a whole day there, of which Arch barely slept. I think all the hustle and bustle kept him happily entertained for a good few hours. We ate good food, met up with my sister and my mum, browsed the British Museum and walked miles. It was just a really lovely day. One which I would like to try and schedule in at least once a month, especially as my little sister has taken the plunge and moved there!

Arch was very well-behaved and navigating a baby with a pram, nappy changes and finding hot water on tap was pretty easy! A lot easier than I thought it would be! Stairs at the underground were a bit of a handful, even with extra people to help. So we ended up walking most places…which in my eyes is the best way to do it. If you’re not in a rush, walk. You will always find little places and streets you will want to return too!

Abby channeling her inner russian goddess. I really don’t know how we survived before picture phones. I took my polaroid camera, and my phone and that was it! I think I’d like to attempt to do a fashion shoot in London with Abby just using my iphone.

Chanel-and-abby

My favourite thing about London are the details. The shop windows, the buildings, the people. We went to Covent Garden and everything is so stylishly done! I loved having a quick look in Chanel…plus I’d quite happily have a giant lit up pink 5 in my house!  I think I’d like to do a series on London for great places to take your little ones… Arch really liked Covent Garden purely because of all the lights, and the live music playing…but I think next month I’d like to do an aquarium. If anyone has any good ideas do share. I totally reccomend the British Museum. We just did the Eygpt area, and even Arch was pretty fascinated by the mummies.

Until our next trip!
