London Style

>Ally Pally

>Living in London comes with a big bunch of wonderful advantages, especially being able to pick a lovely place to explore and then go and do it with relative ease. I’ve lived in North London for just over 2 years but I didn’t even really know what Alexandra Palace was! In my first year here, I could see it’s glass glory from across the park but for some reason, I always assumed it wasn’t accessible or there was nothing there for the public. I’ll even admit something super silly – I used to think it had something to do with football as its glass or crystal looking facade reminded me of Crystal Palace! Dear me.. I have now realised that it is in fact a lovely place, especially for children or big kids like me who wanted to go on a rowing boat around the lake or see a Deer up close. I came here when it was freakishly hot in England last week so I even bought an ice cream in October!

My Lazy Oaf Brand Ambassador Entry!

Tshirt – Lazy Oaf / Skirt – Charity Shop / Shoes and Watch – Next / Socks – Topshop / Bag – Rokit Vintage
One of the reasons I came to this scenic spot was to create an entry for Lazy Oaf’s Brand Ambassador competition tocelebrate their 10th birthday. This Dollybird Tshirt is really old now but still holds dear to me! You can read the little story about it and see the other ambassadors over in Lazy Oaf’s blog post! I was very pleased to have been picked as an ambassador – what an honour – I’m a true Oaf! So to celebrate I’ll be off to their 10th birthday party tonight, can’t wait!

    >Oh how I love that photo of the deer! I actually live right by natural deer territory but they normally scarper before you can get that close!
    Personally I think that ice cream is good all year round and get vexed when people stop serving it haha.
    That tshirt is adorable, I love the colour and the print is just fabulous.

    >I love Ally Pally. It's one of my favourite places in London!! I actually live just down the road from there so love walking up! There's so much to do there as well: Ice Skating, Golf and they even have gigs sometimes.
