Wanderlust Wednesday (Vol. 7): Just London

Graffiti in Shoreditch, London

Hello everyone and welcome to yet another volume of Wanderlust Wednesday! I’m in the middle of my second to last week of school here, and the work continues to pile on! I’m kind of missing the days I was able to go to a museum after class, now I go straight back to my flat and do homework. Send good vibes, you guys!

This was also the first week in a very long time where I spent every day in London. I usually take at least a day trip to somewhere else, but I stayed in city limits the whole 7 days. It was kind of refreshing knowing that I didn’t have to catch a bus, plane or train anywhere!

Wednesday – Thursday

Not much to say here except for class and homework. Two reports to write, 10 mood boards to put together, a photoshoot to plan, and a travel journal to write in. Anyone want to help a girl out over here?


Friday was the day that I realized I needed to get a lot more work done than I had originally thought. I sat down that night after class and cranked out so much work for both my styling and my business class. I bet I was doing homework for 6 hours on end that night with not a whole lot of breaks. I felt more on top of things afterwards, and I slept really well that night, but it sure was a lot to do!


A few hours of Saturday were spent in Shoreditch (East London) looking for places to do a photoshoot for my styling class. For a little more detail, we have to do an 8-look, 8-page spread that looks like it would appear in a fashion magazine. We wanted ours in an edgier part of town in front of graffiti walls, and we were not disappointed with what the city had to offer!

Sunday was the day we got a confirmed model, make up artist, and photographer for our shoot so it was a pretty good day where that was concerned! It finally gave me a chance to breathe and concentrate on things that weren’t directly related to that. I love styling for photoshoots and I’m a stylist for a magazine on campus back at home, but this particular one is seriously stressing me out. I just want to get it over and done with!


On Monday morning we toured the Victoria & Albert museum for my contemporary culture class, and even though I had been there before, I saw parts of the museum I didn’t know existed! That’s one reason why you should never stop going to museums – you never know what you’re going to see next!

After the museum, me and my styling group members headed to Oxford Street to get clothes for our shoot. 6 hours and many shopping bags later, we were finally able to go back home. I love shopping, but it’s just not as rewarding when you’re not shopping for yourself!


Back to the school grind. I spent 6 hours in class and who knows how long I worked on homework tonight! I love my program here, but I’ll be so ready for a vacation as soon as it’s over!
