Almost time for the count down to the London Olympics to begin, so exciting! Are you going to be watching any events? I’m definitely going to try and watch some especially the gymnastics. I’ve put together some lovely photos and illustrations of London for you today, I hope you enjoy them. Just creating this post made me very nostalgic about my year or so in London and am now dying for a return visit! Have a wonderful weekend friends and don’t forget to watch the opening ceremony this eve, I’m sure it’s going to be amazing!

    I’m looking forward to the Olympics too and especially to the gymnastics. I long for London too, but not during this time. Have a wonderful weekend, Lana! xo

    I totally love London. I actually bought a T-shirt that says just that. I have not lived there, but have visited on a few occasions. I just love to roam the streets of London taking in those fantastically creative shop windows. Having said that, you would not find me on those same streets at this Olympic time – if it was crowded when I went in season one year, then I would hate to see how overcrowded it is going to be now, with the anticipated additional one million visitors to London this year.

  7. What a wonderful tribute to London! I love the focus on the red buses and the postboxes, that’s what London is ultimately all about right?
