Exploring Notting Hill

    Living 30 minutes away from London definitely has its perks :) I am working a few hours a week but I definitely have a lot of free time while I am out here and I am trying to take full advantage of that. The other day I went into London and wanted to see all of the beautiful sights and colors in Notting Hill. It's a little surreal when you only see pictures of something and then actually get to see it in real life. I was sure happy that I brought my camera along. Honestly I'm not the best photographer, and I have no clue how to edit a single picture besides the enhance button on iphoto haha! That being said, I'm pretty sure that London is pretty enough without any editing, even with my beginner photography skills. After this little adventure I  am quite certain that I belong in one of these homes one day!

Which one would you live in? I'm loving the Royal Blue one! ^

Flowers are everywhere here and it's my most favorite thing. I really need to go buy a vase for our flat (apartment) so I can actually buy some before winter is here. ^

The cutest flower shop ^

I swear the city makes cute little scenes like this for the fun of it. ^

Wensel's in Wales

Since we are living in England, we are trying to take advantage of our proximity to the rest of Europe (at least as much as we can with Phil's work schedule). This was our first weekend trip besides London of course. We rented a car and braved the left hand side of the road and drove to another country... only a 3 hour road trip by the way! You see what I mean when I say proximity? 

Wales was beautiful, we stayed in a town called Swansea and then drove around all day to see all of the different coastal views, mostly from giant cliffs! Amazing views were everywhere! 

 Small town on our way called Usk ^ 

 We actually got lost in Usk but we were pretty happy about it.. at least I was, I don't know about Phil and his pouty face haha ^ 

 Phil and his co-worker Skyler who came with us, also who we have to thank for basically all of these pictures :) ^

Happy Weekend my friends! It's actually supposed to be sunny over here so I'm pretty excited :)
