Last time I was in London was for the Kyary gig and afterwards I went to Slim Jim’s with Aisha, Kai, D, and Ken. Slim Jim’s is a Whisky Rock’n’roll bar with its main decorative feature being a ceiling full of bras. As you can imagine, we looked a bit out of place considering we had dressed up immensely OTT ‘Japanese Kawaii Fashion' for Kyary. The bouncer on the door at first wouldn’t let us in as he said they do not allow fancy dress! Oooo I felt the burn of that comment. ‘This is just how we dress’ was said and after an awkward pause we were let in XD
Thankfully they had some very yummy cocktails so it was worth going haha!
As the night wore on Kai and I found ourselves in the ladies toilets having immense fun with their giant full length mirror and a posca pen to add to the graffiti all over the walls. We were so engrossed in our new activity that we lost track of time. The guys thought we had gotten lost and sent Aisha to look for us hahaha!!
On the left: Kai decided to express what she believed to be my feelings for her. Pretty accurate imo ;)
Later we met up with Kai and Aisha for an evening walk around Central London, vaguely heading towards Covent Garden.
We then came across these giant red metal letters spelling out LOVE. Upon further inspection there were little metal hearts padlocked all over the letters. Each one had a little message written on by a couple or someone wishing for love. Such a lovely thing to see!
Also whilst I was in London it was Pancake Day! We went to a place called The Diner, which is retro American themed and had amazing thick scotch pancakes. Along with endless coffee refills and orange cream soda. Nommm.
My dish was called ‘The Lumberjack Breakfast’.
Much shopping was had on Oxford Street during my visit as well – of course :P
