Stir It Up

Song of the Week 19
Stir It Up
Bob Marley

I'm pretty sure I don't know a single soul who does not love Bob Marley. This is my all time favourite of his as it creates instant positive vibes and the calming lyrics send me away to a sweet place. I'm finally ready for some relaxation and Marley is always a good place to start, so here's to a good week!



London Loves

Recently I took a trip to London for artistic adventures, involving galleries and street wanderings galore. We called at the Royal Academy of Arts to view the Anselm Kiefer exhibition; a truly thought-provoking and inspiring presentation of painting, sculpture and photography - a must see. 

The National Gallery showed us exquisite mosaics scattered over the floor and gilded frames golder than ABBA's greatest hits. Swinging around Trafalgar Square felt rather Kinks-esque albeit the (slightly terrifying) street vendors, yet the winter chills and setting sun softened the scene showing London in a beautiful golden haze. 

Later on came the Tate Modern, a tranquil establishment of modern art. We witnessed a whole host of wonderful pieces, rooms, interactive set ups and - most importantly - the book shop, one of the best and most thoroughly art-filled I have ever been in the vicinity of. I also sought out a real Picasso before taking a stroll across the millennium bridge just across from the large brick building that houses the gallery.

We took a turn through London at the brink of the evening, lights up and Christmas festivities in order. Waving goodbye to London I felt a tinge of nostalgia from the days of visiting such art galleries as a child. I will forever and always recommend London for everything - especially art.



It's a Stormy Monday

Song of the Week 18
Stormy Monday
James Brown

A funky tune for a funky week. Get yourself grooving to this rad James Brown song, one that I've always loved since time began. I've been a bit behind on posts lately due to an atrocious amount of  work for A levels and designing the set for our school production. Anyway I'm back now and will have new posts up this week!

November has sure been an interesting month! Most of it hasn't even been instagrammed due to the fact that I've been travelling around a lot and doing a lot of (mostly art) work. Even so, I'm totally getting into the winter spirit now and can safely say I'm ready for Christmas!
