The Brits

Ever since I was a little girl I've had a fascination with England; its culture, fashion, and people. It is one of my favourite places to visit, but that might also be in part because some of my favourite people live in the UK. England is filled with such rich culture and history, its definitely the perfect place for a history buff (like me!). Plus they have accents which make me drool, which make a lot of British guys totally dream worthy (well it also helps if they are fit and have a great personality too).
Some of my favourite actors, fashion designers/labels, stores, food items, and historical figures are British. Let me just name drop a few: Princess Diana (I think that the whole world still has a fascination with her, rightly so. Not only was she pretty and stylish but she also had a good heart), Emma Watson (she's smart and fashionable), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter in my opinion might just be one of the best series ever), Topshop (DUH!), Burberry (its iconic), Jane Austen (I love all of her books), Marks and Spencers Gold tea (yes, yes, I know I talk about M&S tea a lot but its for a good reason, its just so dang yummy!), the Royal Family (ummm... hello! have you seen Prince Harry and William? They are totally gorgeous...), Cadbury Chocolate (yum-o), shopping in Tesco or Sainsbury(never has grocery shopping been so much fun), Thorntons Caskets (I swear you have not lived until you have tasted the nougat from a Thorntons Casket... god now I am salivating while I write this!), Stella McCartney (her clothes are so pretty and eco-friendly), ect. I could go on and on, but if I did I might loose your interest. So let me just end this by saying, Lets hear it for the British!


  1. I love London, I haven't been there since I was 12 though sadly. I remember being in Harrod's and a security guard picking on my mom though, for standing still in a walkway lol!!!

  2. your blog is really great...will definitely be visiting back!

  3. Ah, you have a photo from the Keira Knightley Africa Vogue photoshoot! That's one of my favs, I swear it's at least half responsible for getting me interested in fashion!
