London Life...

Hey Everyone...

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and aren't too sad it's Monday already!

I am unusually happy today, as although it is Monday, I have a half day as the fiance and I are off to meet our registrar to discuss the wedding ceremony! I am so excited! And for those of you who asked, the big day will be the 26th May!

So to match my happy mood, I wanted to share some pictures I have taken over the last few weeks. As some of you may know, as part of my job, I work two days a week in central London, right next to Buckingham Palace.

On Thursday it was just such a beautiful day, my workmate and I just had to have lunch in St. James' Park...


The little lake was so peaceful and tranquil! I even got to see the changing of the guard for the first time ever, and spotted an egg for my hunt!

After work I decided to walk to a different station to take in the sights. Despite the throngs of tourists, it was worth it...

A few weeks ago, I decided to take the bus home rather than the tube, so that I could also explore London a little more...

Hyde Park Corner

Marble Arch
I was so glad I did as I spotted this fantastic statue near Marble Arch which I had never seen before! Isn't it amazing? The perspective was so strange, but it just entranced me!

I love living in London, and I love working in London even more. I hear a lot of people complain about this city, and yes I do get pissed off rather frustrated with the crowds at times. But it is the most beautiful and extrordinary place to be in the whole world. I love the commute, it gives me time, and space, and exercise and reminds me of all the people and all the wonders in the world!

It's so full of amazing things to do and see, and last week there was one extra special thing to see. The fiance had a gig at The Old Queen's Head in Islington, near Angel station and it was a fantastic night...

Although I love the country and dream of a beautiful old farmhouse by the sea, I'm not sure I cope without the hustle, bustle and excitement of the city.

Love Jewel xXx

P.S. I am almost at 100 followers and my first blogaversary! So I will be having a very special giveaway soon!


  1. We had a work sports game the other week and i loved sitting in the cab driving through London! I dream about the house in the country but don't think I could be too far from the hustle and bustle either!

  2. Oh, Jewel, your fiance is a musician! How fabulous!! My husband is a musician! I have been married to him for 25 years and I just keep enjoying the music he plays. Some days he awakes and sings me songs. It makes for a lot of good laughter and good times. We are an older couple, but I have not tired of going to the gigs with him. I wish you many, many happy years together!
    Thank you for sharing your walk through London with us. I would love to see London and maybe even sit by that lake...

  3. Wow not long till your big day - how exciting! Scarlett x
