Cosy is what we aim for...

Living in London, I often crave the countryside. I miss being able to see a horizon, and I miss being able to breathe deeply without inhaling some pungent exhaust fume aroma, or an eau de ACTUAL TOILET, which seems to be so frequent in the city. So the fact that it's taken me more than two years to get around to visiting Hampstead Heath may come as a surprise. It's definitely worth the bus fare, guys, even if only to see some beautiful rich-people houses!

As you can see, I didn't just go for the mansions. I was most definitely in it for the trees. If you're into trees, Hampstead Heath has 'em. I've always associated the Heath with fields and picnicking families (and on that front I was not disappointed!) but there are also some beautiful wooded areas, and some gorgeous scenic views. I was also particularly excited that I could see so many aeroplanes flying overhead, although I appreciate that aeroplane noise might well irritate some people.

I made sure to wrap up super warm (and also wear a mini skirt, because I live on the gosh-darned edge, motherfluffers) for our little pseudo-country walk. I was also wearing a duffel coat, but I took it off so as to suffer for my art, and also because I knew that there would be too much out-fit repetition if I wore it twice. Trade secrets, guys.

  1. This looks like such a magical place! Now all I can think about doing is packing up and getting lost in the trees.
