I guess I should start this post with hey, I’m Lauren and I’m going to talk about my experience studying abroad in London and my love for fashion. I’ve always loved writing and traveling, so I figured this would be a perfect way to share with my family and friends all about my adventures (hi mom!).
I’ve officially been in London for a little over a week! It feels like it’s been two days, but also two years. The days have been jammed full of orientation, classes, meeting new people, and exploring. Oh, and don’t forget shopping (shocker!). To be honest, the first couple of days were slightly miserable. My roommates hadn’t moved in yet and I hadn’t found “my people” yet. I was regretting going abroad by myself and really missing my friends and family. Luckily, when they moved in they were super sweet and we hit it off (thank God). We are starting to plan trips for the semester which I could not be more excited about.
Since my program consists of both studying and interning I am only taking two classes. Both of the classes are geared towards my major and minor (PR and Marketing), so they are right up my alley and I am really happy with them so far. Who knew that classes could be four hours lonnnnng?! BUT that means Friday is free, so I can explore and travel.
Check out my photos from this past week below xxx (they do that here and I kinda love it)
Some photos of the South Kensington area. The architecture here is so interesting and detailed compared to what we have at home.
And of course, the typical touristy pic with a phone booth…because did you really come to London if you didn’t take one?! (the answer is yes, you really came, you just weren’t half as basic as I am)
We stumbled upon a boutique hotel with the coolest art installments – needless to say I was obsessed.
