Lake District / LANDAN / Instagram

So I've had a rather fun filled Easter break (with a worryingly little amount of revision) which included going to a very chilly Lake District and then London to meet up with my Tanzania chums for a couple of days.
Loweswater · Africa Trousers · Cruising · Dipping and Dyeing · Training it

Me and my friend Meghan travelled as independent women to London to meet Sophie, a fellow expeditioner, who is the most comical person I know. Although we hadn't seen each other for over eight months, it was like we'd never left the expedition and got straight in catching up...although with considerably cleaner appearances. However, we still made the conscious effort to pull out the ol' African trousers.

On Tuesday we went shopping in Brick Lane and Oxford Street; I hadn't been to Brick Lane before but I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of vintage items I liked the look of. We were going to go to Camden but didn't have much time as we had reservations for Cosmo's AKA all you can eat buffet AKA my idea of paradise. We also attempted a spot of dip-dying in the evening which turned out pretty damn well for a bunch of amateurs and some kitchen foil.
Overall the trip was a good 'un; me and Meghan transitioned from girls into women by managing to navigate ourselves into, around and back out of London, I lost my Cosmo's virginity and I also discovered that Sophie is possibly the funniest driver on the planet. Imagine a 19 year old sat so close to the wheel she could almost lick the windscreen careering around corners whilst shouting 'tossers' every so often at other road users. Brilliant.

I also got Instagram! Well, I've had it for about three months but I've started using it more now. So if you would like to follow me here I will happily return the favour!
