- Lest We Forget...

I've been wanting to do more 'lifestyle' posts on my blog for a while now and seeing as it's soon Remembrance Day, I thought I'd show you a few snippets of my past week down in London - which included a trip to the Tower of London. If you're nearby, I really would recommend going to see the poppies whilst you can as it really was an impressive sight!

As well as this, we had our first burgers from Byron Hamburgers after the lovely Serene recommended them, and it's safe to say we'll be going back! We went to the one in Camden, but there are many dotted around! Lastly, it was of course Halloween, where I chose to recreate a makeup look I spied on Illamasqua's Instagram here.

Do you like reading lifestyle type posts? Feel free to follow me on Instagram (stylesunrise_ ) as this is where I post these sorts of images!

  1. That image looks so beautiful, the poppies really are wonderful! I need to go see them, can't believe I haven't been yet but I just hate going into the city with my toddler (tubes are not buggy friendly that's for sure). Sounds like you had a great time in London! x
