London diary

Last month I was in London for a special occasion, my highschool friend`s wedding.

I was thrilled when she invited me because, as I mentioned in one of my first posts, London, is my favorite city.

The wedding took place in a very special location in Watford, at High Elms Manor, an elegant place with an incredible garden. Unfortunately for us, the London weather had a little say and we were not able to enjoy the green space that they provided us.

Of course all eyes were on the bride, who looked stunning and perfect: the gorgeous dress, the smooth make up and the bouquet…everything was coming together like the pieces of a puzzle.

I wore a pretty dress from http://www.asos.com.

Here are some pics. Enjoy!

I fell in love with London when I was at the University, fall 2007. It was love at first sight!

It lasted 4 whole months. I lived in Southfields, near Wimbledon Park, on Elsenham Street:)

Why do I love London?

Is there anymore to say? Well, I could add that London is fun, attractive, alive, entertaining, empowering, welcoming, fresh, intimidating sometimes, spectacular, warm, unforgettable. It`s the city that offers you all, whatever your imagination desires.

And this quote it is sooo true:

My next and last visit to London was in 2010/2011, but I can remember it as if it was yesterday.

The places, the people, the noise, the buzzing streets, its vibrations and its flavors, make of London unique, peculiar and phenomenal.

The worst part is that, once you`ve been there, you can`t get it out of your head and you wish to go back again and again…

So, will you please
