London Baby

ah London baby! went to London with my best friends yesterday; Mandy and Charlotte. so much fun was had. i miss them ever so much, and it was so nice to hang out. it was a fun day filled with laughs and art. i went to see the Pop Life show at the Tate modern, and wow, that was amazing! i lived and breathed that show.i really couldn't get enough of it. wow. amazing. the only annoying thing was i couldn't take any photos. the show made me feel sad, happy and over blown by art...and that hasn't happened in a while. my super favorite part of the show was a video by Takashi Murakami of Kirsten Dunst singing Turning Japanese. it was beautiful, such a amazing video, (even though the song has another meaning). i watched it like 6-7 times. Kirsten looked wonderful, i think blue hair suits her.while in London, i got a little excited when i was greeted by a poster in the tube..ah it reminds me of a post i did a long time ago.after the Tate we went to the Saatchi gallery. ah i love it. its in such a lovely place, and the gallery is giant, with lots of room to breath. wonderful. my favourite piece in the show was Mr clock face, aka; Watchman by Ryan Johnson.i hope everyone is well, and super fun things are happening. peace to you all.
ps, if anyone wants any names of the artist's work in the photos, just let me know.

I am in love with every single photograph in this post. Also I love your style Nicola! Your outfit is very cute alongside that epic New Moon ad.

I'm glad you had such a great time in London. My favorite part about visiting great cities is taking in the culture of art as well. That along with great resturants-yum!
