The Globe Theatre + Parliament

Happy Friday, everyone! How was your week? Thanks to everyone who wished LLL a happy blogiversary yesterday! 🙂 This morning, I went to a meeting about Kingston University. There are six girls going there next semester, and my study abroad advisor wondered if I could meet up and answer their questions. Um, yes! It was […]

WIAW + National Theatre Recap

Helloooooo! Can you believe it’s already Wednesday? It seems like I was just posting a WIAW… How is your week going so far? Mine is going pretty well, especially today, because the sun is out and election commercials are OVER. Whew. Before I start, I just want to share this hilarious picture of Ella. We […]

Exploring London with Mom (Two)

(Click here for a link to the first part of Exploring London with Mom!) After walking through Portobello Market, my mom and I headed south. We were on our way to Harrods, but ended up finding Kensington Gardens, Royal Albert Hall, and the Prince Albert Memorial along the way. I love discovering a city this […]

Exploring London with Mom

Welllll I am very slightly behind on my recaps of studying abroad, which is a bummer, because I was having such a great time a year ago! As I mentioned before, I was so lucky to have so many visitors while in England. My dad flew over with me in September, one of my best […]

Parks Around Kingston

I mentioned it before in this post about Brighton: I love love loved London, but sometimes, it was so nice to get away from the loud, bustling city. Fortunately for me, there were plenty of parks that surrounded Kingston-upon-Thames that I could walk or take a bus to when I needed some peace and quiet. […]

A Friend in England + Oxford

Well, I’m off enjoying some wine tasting today for my birthday, but I wrote a recap yesterday for you all to hopefully enjoy! 🙂 While studying abroad I was so blessed to have many visitors. If you remember, my dad flew over to England with me, and my second visitor was one of my best […]

Cheese & Wine Festival + Diwali

Hi, everyone! I hope you weekend is going well so far! First of all, I apologize for not updating too much this past week. I was going to do a fun Friday post yesterday, but I needed to finish a huge homework assignment before anything else. Homework was not exactly fun reason for being up […]

Bath, England

Hello hello! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I am headed to a Writing Center conference today…and I had to get up at 5:30. Not fun on a Saturday, but I’m thinking the conference will make up for that! (I wrote this post Friday night, if you were wondering! 😉 ) […]

Stonehenge

Good morning, everyone! And Happy Friday!!! My next recap of my study abroad trip will take us to Stonehenge. This trip was also a part of the British Life and Culture class that I took at Kingston Uni. We actually also went to Bath on the same day, but I’ve decided to split the two […]

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace One of my absolute favorite places in England was conveniently about five minutes from Kingston by bus. Hampton Court Palace was built beginning in the 1500s for King Henry VIII, but was added on to in the late 1600s by William III, who intended to make it rival Versailles (source). This combination […]
