As many other young fashion bloggers are probably aware, GCSE Art has its many ups and downs, but this day was certainly one of the perks. In our own clothes, we ventured up to Kensington on the train, then tube, to begin our second book on 'Pattern and Texture in our cultural heritage'. We strolled, much to the frustration of our teacher, along the high street attempting to quickly snap at the decadent second storeys of the shop front buildings. My photography here is pretty sketchy, for which I apologise... I will just blame it on the pressure of speed.
See that man on middle left hand window?
He was pretty confused as to why a gaggle of girls were enthusiastically taking photographs of him.
Onwards we ambled, toward Holland Park, into unknown territory, for myself at least and I was baffled as to why I had never been here before: beautiful houses smattered with blue plaques along tree lined streets. This was going on my list of where I would like to live, alongside an apartment in Paris or Cannes or New York,. but maybe later on when I am a yummy mummy? And yummy mummys we certainly did see in Holland Park, out walking with their luxury pushchairs.

Also only shot of me full length from the day in my black pencil skirt feeling quite sophisticated.
Once in the park itself, we had an hour to sketch in which, on my part, not much sketching was done. At all. Due to the freezing temperatures we had already endured, my hands we in no fit state to draw and by draw I simply mean create anything that looks remotely like the real object So, after a few half hearted attempts I resorted to taking as many pictures as I possibly could, with the resolve to finish them at home. From here we went to Macdonald's, at first much to my disgust - I'm really not a fan of it! - Or, at least I thought I wasn't... But actually rather enjoyed my meal! It's probably just because I was famished and cold... So much so that I shared a second portion... Yeah, just famished and cold, that's it... Finally, stopped off at Leighton House, in which we were not allowed to take pictures, and I urge you all to visit, it is so beautiful.
Also, I have created a facebook page for Union Olivia, so feel free to like!
