A few weeks ago now in England we had a few autumnal days where the weather was just fog. No sun, no rain, no wind just fog and overcast skies. It did give the colours in the trees an extra pop and you could really see how bright they were despite the grey surroundings. I don't think these photos give them any justice but it does depict typical British days.

It has been a long time since I have seen actual art in a gallery, when I studied art in school I went to galleries and museums quite often. Living so close to Central London I feel like I do not take full advantage of the incredible places it has to offer, the saying 'tourist in your own city' comes to mind. So now that I have an assignment to critically analyse an art/photography exhibition my friends and I headed to the National Gallery where they have the Seduced by Art exhibition that our tutor recommended we go to. Even though I have been outside the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square many times in my lifetime, I have never actually been inside (that I can remember at least). I appreciate art in all of its forms and enjoy creating my own, even though I do not possess much talent and I felt like an art student again.


In all honesty, having to write notes and trying to think of ways to link to core readings for my class took away my enjoyment but what can you do. If you are a true art lover I would recommend the exhibition, it has a variety of different types of art, I loved the landscape and still life rooms. Above are some postcards of a few of my favourite and interesting pieces. Afterwards we went to get some lunch and sat in Trafalgar Square enjoying the setting and the autumnal weather.


Before I made my way I heard on the radio that the new Twilight: Breaking Dawn premiere was tonight in Leicester Square and it is literally around the corner from where we were during the day so my friend and I decided to check it out. We stayed for a little while hoping we might be able to see something but the security guards, the crowds, the cold and the fact we couldn't see anything sent us home. It was nice to be there because I wouldn't normally be in the area at all and I'm not a twihard even though I am looking forward to the final film and I hope it lives up to the book. It's my one and only guilty pleasure. It was a good touristy day.

Day trip to the National Gallery (and around town)

Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night is one of my favourite times of the year. Fireworks displays are held, people set them off in their back garden and most nights when you're out you will quite often see some. I love them, the black sky is lit up by fire and glitter. At the weekend my sister and I went down to our local fireworks, I have been so excited to go this year because I was busy last year and missed out. It was quite a chilly night but thankfully it was a dry night and did not rain. Spending half an hour 'oohing' and 'aahhing' and on our way out we lit some sparklers. For me, this is when Winter begins, all of the leaves are on the ground, everyone starts wrapping up and frost starts to arrive. I can't wait to stay inside, wrapped up in the cold Winter nights.

The last month has passed as quickly as the leaves have fallen off the trees. I say the same thing every time I change the calender over for the next month but knowing that there is only 2 months of the year left just scares me by how fast time is passing. I have had a busy October..


Enjoying the Autumn weather and scenery, even when we had a few days of fog and despite that fact that it has rained every other day.


Being able to wear my new scarf and gloves when it started to get chilly, I love Autumn/Winter fashion.


Went back to uni at the start of the month and the hard work has started almost immediately, with very long readings, killing my hand by trying to write down all of the notes before the slide changes (specifically talking about my boring Marketing and PR lecture) and getting ready to start writing my dissertation. Needless to say, third year is going to be a lot of hard work. 


Taking a break every now and then because too much work can drive you insane. I sometimes like to enjoy this time by watching some a TV show, Gilmore Girls has been my favourite recently. Rory Gilmore has become my inspiration and we both share the dream of being a journalist. And of course drinking coffee.


The other day I went to a Halloween party, I went as a Panda. One of my favourite animals and a really easy, last minute idea.

Nothing very exciting has happened but I like it that way sometimes. It has been a good month and I hope that November will be just as good to me. Have a wonderful month everyone!
