London Exhibitions

Things are going to be a little slow for the next few weeks as I need to put all my energy into focusing on the exams!
However, here is just a little update! One of my housemates was going home to London for the day and was going to do a bunch of exhibitions while in the city, so I decided to pop along too! I found out that London College of Fashion is right on Oxford Circus which is quite worrying if I do decide to study there! As I will be constantly broke (home of UK flagship TopShop). We then went to the V&A (one of my favourite museums in the world!!) to see the China Now exhibition which was pretty good and had the best afternoon tea there.


We chose to sit in the Victorian Tea rooms sipping our tea and eating cake. So good! We then got back on the tube and went to National Portrait Gallery to check out the Vanity Fair exhibition which is well worth it. Some fantastic, iconic photography! Some very memorable photographs by Celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Lastly we went to the Tate Modern. We originally wanted to check out the Duchamp, Man Ray and Picabia exhibition but for £9.50 we thought we would go round the permanent exhibition instead and save our pennies. It was a pretty fantastic day and which ended with a lovely meal at Wagamamas at London Bridge! Phew!

I bought a sewing themed button set that I think was for those who make their own greeting cards. I instantly saw a brooch in the set and decided to make it this weekend. I haven’t been creative in such a long time, it was nice to finally make something again. I sewed the scissors button on to the ribbon and added a bunch of seed beads. In the pic I added a couple of ‘Vanity’ badges which I bought from the Vanity Fair Exhibition! Hope you guys like it!
