Last Thursday (24 March) the day of the exhibition for Samsung’s The Now Project arrived. The culmination of a month of taking photographs of a perceived now. The day also happened to coincide with the day my (super stylish) sis wanted us to go to The Ideal Home Show at Earls Court. So I made a day of it. Seeing as it was the day when the photographs I had taken on my Samsung Wave II would be exhibited, I thought it only fitting that I should leave the DSLR at home and document the day on my mobile. Plus, it’s always nice to have a day out without a clunky camera in tow – a bit unusual, too, for a blogger!
So here is my day in photos:
8.20am – the sun is already out when I arrive at the railway station:
9.20am – enjoy a coffee on the train, after painting my nails with Models Own in Lilac Dream:
10.20am – arrive at Earls Court:
11.20am – enjoy a quick pint (!!):
12.20pm – pick up some ideas for the interior of my (dream) home:
1.20pm – Emily of myfashionlife.com talks us through this season’s hottest trends, including ’70s style and colour blocking, on the Ideal Woman catwalk:
4.00pm – stylish sis and I re-charge our batteries with a cupcake in the sun outside the tube station (before panic ensues as I realise I have lost my Oyster card – oops!):
6.20pm – the sun sets beautifully over the Thames:
As I stroll across Tower Bridge, towards the Design Museum:
7.20pm – everyone’s photos are displayed on a series of screens in a constantly changing montage:
This is the first bloggers’ event I’ve been able to get to – so a huge thank you to Nicole from RED for making it possible and being so sweet and lovely when I met her.
I also met some of the bloggers behind some of the blogs I read (nearly) every day. Jill of Street Style London was so lovely and welcoming and introduced me to Kate of I am not a celebrity.
8. 20pm – I found myself on the terrace of the Design Museum with Lexxi of My Labyrinth Blog and Charlie of A la mode (who Jill was also kind enough to introduce me to):
And, then, before I knew it, it was time to make my way home again…
