I am so excited! This week two of the t-shirts I designed for Boden were released in their Johnnie B AW14′ range! You can buy them HERE. (Age 16 is about an adult size 10/12!). The dog and the unicorn were illustrated by me. I am so happy they released the unicorn design as that was my favourite that I did for them. I did 4 other designs too, so perhaps they will be released at some point in the future. Above are some of the original drawings, hope you like them!

London’s secret station – Aldwych Underground

strandaldwych
A couple of weekends ago, we managed to find some last minute tickets (cheers eBay) to one of the London Transport Museum’s secret underground tours! They always sell out pretty quick and rarely do them so it was pretty exciting.
70s
The station was originally called Strand but then renamed Aldwych, it was closed down in the 90′s due to low passenger use. During both world wars the station was used as a shelter for bomb raids, people lived on the platforms on bunk beds, there were even music shows down the tube to entertain people! The Queen’s tea sets were also stored in the tunnels, alongside lots of London’s famous paintings and artworks – to protect them during the raids. Currently, the station is used a lot for filming! It’s starred in a lot of famous films and music videos (The Prodigy – Firestarter!)

The above photo was a place for practicing tiling for underground stations. Every single tube station has a different colour of tiles – this was for people who couldn’t read back in the day – to ensure they could work out where they were.tunnelswayout
So many amazing posters from the 70′s are still in tact!

keepslondongoingP.S It was so hard to take good photos down there – the lighting is terrible (I was close to not posting them!). If you like the tube – keep checking the London Transport Museum‘s website for future tours, they sell out QUICK.

What I wore today – Sunday Underground day

dress
I actually managed to get some photos of an outfit for the first time in… um ages?

So here is what I wore last Sunday – a trip to the closed underground station Aldwych (more on that soon – lots of photos to share!)

Dress: Mix tile print from Topshop
Boots: Dr Martens Faun Patent Chelsea boots (in the sale here!) I’ve worn these so much since I got them last year and they are still in perfect condition.
Sunglasses: Modern Cat Eye Sunglasses from Forever 21 – So cheap £4.50!
Collar: Mock shirt collar from COS (don’t think they have it anymore but you can probably find on eBay, or you can just wear a normal shirt underneath H&M always do sleeveless ones.)

Berlin pt. 2 – Kimchi Princess / The best Korean food ever?

We asked at the hotel where to go for dinner on the first night, a girl at the bar recommended a Korean place called Kimchi Princess, we managed to book (just!) and I am so happy we did, as it was SO busy and when I looked online it had a lot of good reviews. So off we went!

It was so hot on this day, all we wanted was ICE COLD WATER. This looked so good at the time?! We sat outside and it was so nice.fujikpbikes
foodThe pancake was so delicious I actually died afterwards, aka. majorly over ate. We got so much food for what we paid for/ordered. The portions over there are way more generous than London. I’d highly recommend a visit if you’re in Berlin, it was the best Korean food i’ve ever had!nightskyberlin
The sunsets were amazing. So many more photos to come so I’ll be doing a couple more posts, we actually did quite a lot in the 4 nights we stayed!
