London : {retrospective photo diary}.

Tuesday, 12 March 2013

{Photos captured and edited by yours truly & John Li}
Finally, amid the wonderful humdrum that is life, I found a few moments to sift through forgotten images from last year's overseas sojourn to London - little realising at the time that this would be the start of a long, irrevocable love affair with this beautiful city with its abundance of life's most irresistable entities (melliferous afternoon teas, boutiques brimming with laconic London labels, Chelsea flower stalls that stand as purveyors of the most perfect peonies I've ever seen, that gorgeous lilt of the English accent, and of course, the friends that were made along the way)...

Much love, Mandy. xx

  11. Mandy, what a beautiful warm post into our freezing Estonian winter evening. though it makes me miss warm days like crazy! anyway, I hope I will get to visit London one day (my fiance has been there but I had to work then, boo). I think your photos paint a very beautiful picture of the surroundings :) and your light, smartly layered outfits are gorgeous too. and I envy all the shopping, hehe.
