So two Wednesdays ago (because I take forever to edit photos), I was invited out to Fairmont Royal York to enjoy some afternoon tea in honour of the Queen’s public birthday. Because when you’re the Queen you can apparently have two birthdays, sleep in the biggest room in the royal suite and have the toilet changed every time you visit. #maybenextlifetime. 

I really took my sweet ass time with this post… No excuses here. But, in my defense, I would just like to point out how awesome pants my blog looks atm. I haven’t been this happy with my blog layout and setup in the longest time, and I remain falsely hopeful that this will be the catalyst to make me the most regular blogger in the history of the universe. Anywhoo, Europe trip posts continue…

Super delayed, but here is my original crochet cross stitch braid. I’m catching up slowly on my blog posts I swear! I still have a whole bunch of Europe posts planned but life has really taken over and it’s gotten so hard to keep all my social media accounts active when there’s so much else going on. I know some beauty bloggers get a lot of heck for “not having a real job”, but I swear it really is super demanding.

Here is the second part of our London trip. We were so incredibly blessed to have sunny – and more importantly – rainless weather for the duration of our stay in England. We had agreed upon dividing up the planning of the travel itinerary but since I’m a huge procrastinator, most of the work fell on the BF and I promised to plan London. I assumed since I had spent much of my childhood in this city and it’s surroundings that I would be very familiar with the attractions and the transit, but boy was I mistaken.

So I saw that Laura from buynowbloglater started blogging posts like this and I thought it was a great idea for when I’ve fallen behind on my blogging and I want to take the really fast and slightly cheat way of catching up. Here is my life in the past few weeks of course with lots of yapping below explaining the story behind each and every photo (top to bottom, left to right).
