Folks your girl is a model now!!! No more selfies with my rose gold iPhone 6s it’s all about the megapixels baby!!!
Ok back to the blog.
Thanks to Dwayne, I finally got the chance to go to Sky Gardens (in May) 😍
The first time we tried to go, we hadn’t booked tickets and were told to come back at 9pm when they accept walk ins #myth.
So what better way to celebrate the final Bank Holiday in May…then at the picturesque Sky Gardens.
…ok so there’s a lot more to the day than pretty flowers and ooo la la views.
We started the day off with a workout. I got a day pass at Nuffield Health gym and got my flex on with muscle man himself lol.
After that I made my way home, got ready and awaited my “surprise trip“.
First stop…HYDE PARK.
Man, there were thousands of people around. Seeing all these teenagers in booty shorts, crop tops and jelly sandals is the stuff of nightmares…
Honestly my spirit was grieved, I kept my eye to the sky and prayed that there would be an intervention for when I have kids because this can’t run 😭
Anyway…I walked around Hyde park until we got to the lake…that’s right y’all I was about to dive in
Here’s something I’ve never done before, rowed a boat in Hyde Park. Ok let me not lie, I sat whilst my Dwayne rowed…and rowed and rowed.
It was great fun watching him chauffeur me across the lake, as we dangerously avoided colliding with neighbouring boats and dodged deadly seagulls
(alright drama queen)
After our adventure on the lake we made our way to Sky Gardens. When we arrived we showed our tickets and made our way up…way up to the 35th floor. Oh, I forgot to mention that I’m not the biggest fan of heights 🤷🏾♀️)
I’m not gonna lie, my first thoughts were ‘oh, is this it? Aww nice’ 😂
That’s so bad, I probably should of done my research.
I genuinely thought Sky Garden was some glass house botanical garden type venue, home to exotic plants and trees that you could only find in the Amazon rainforest #JokesOnYouShiv
Ironically, on our commute to Sky Gardens I took this photo saying “I wanna go here” and that’s what I thought Sky Gardens looked like lol!
Now, I was fairly content with my surroundings. The place is real fancy so I’m glad I didn’t turn up wearing my Nike huaraches.
The view of the city was amazing. A Londoner can appreciate her city every once in a while.
Can we just acknowledge how great a photographer my Dwayne is. He takes the most amazing photos that pick up every intricate detail.
And of course, he captures my good side. I’ve never met someone so keen on taking my photo. Mr Rapley you make me feel like a celebrity ☺️
Here comes the photo shoot!
We walked around for a bit, took some more candid photos for image gang and then made our way home!
Honestly, if you get the chance, go to Sky Gardens, enjoy the view, feel fancy for an hour and sip a cute cocktail too 🥂
Until the next post, toodles!
