A Clever Adventure- London, England


London, England!
Last March I went to London along with my daddy and Emily(one of my best friends who I will probably be mentioned at other times.) It was actually a 3 day layover after having been in Uganda, Africa, for 2 weeks.... I mean if you're gonna be "overseas" you might as well stay there for a day or two! My dad has been to London 2 or 3 times before, so he was GREAT at leading us around everywhere. We got to see a lot of the touristy type things of course, but we also got to see the non-touristy side of London. It made for an adventure to be sure... 

From hidden pubs for drinks, hair salons called, "'enry 'iggins", world famous crepe kiosks, and cab drivers who call you, "Dear", to lamp posts down every beautiful street and alley, glove shops, and riding The Tube, we got to experience a magical portion of London in just 3 days and we adored it! 

 This is how Harrod's does cupcakes y'all... 
I want to try to do this!


Floral Jasmine Cordial-
 It's like honeysuckle in a bottle!
(Harrod's Food court)
This would be amazing in whipped cream or icing.

Sparkly Donuts? YES PLEASE!
You can buy edible glitter at most craft stores too so how fun to put glitter on donuts yourself?! or cakes?! or cupcakes?!
 (Fun idea for a little girls b-day party!)

Rose and Lemonade, Ginger and beer... Interesting combos!
Binoculars for hire at Her Majesty's theater behind each seat. I've never seen these in the US! 
Black board labeled spice, or anything, jars. 
Adorable and CLEVER!

Clever: This girl and her photography!
She took a picture in my sunglasses, reflecting her,
her camera, and the London Eye.

in London are cool...

Smashed Peas. :) ...I hate peas, 
but I love the idea! 


"Chihuly" glass blows my mind. 
 This artist and his team are incredible!
(This is at the Victoria and Albert museum.)
Check it out the glass here: http://www.chihuly.com/museums.aspx

...'Cause they had no lawn.


Horse's head: Apparently someone thought this would be clever.... ??
Deep fried seaweed-DIVINE! 
We ate this at "The Gold Fish", an Asian inspired
 restaurant we had dinner at one night.
Glove shops? How fabulous!



Sorry this ones blurry. :/
There was a city wide Easter egg hunt in London.
These "egg stands" were everywhere and you were supposed to hunt them.... How fun is that?!
