Museums, Farm Girl and Harry Styles!

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

This weeks post is very improv as I didn’t actually plan to spend time taking nice photos (hence why they are iPhone quality) and just be in the moment. However, going through my camera roll I found a few nice pics and I had such an amazing 48 hours in London that I wanted to share it just for my own memories to be honest.

I booked tickets with my friend, Lucy (who is probably one of the only few people who reads my blog, hi) to see Harry Styles all the way back in June 2017. I stupidly thought that having graduated in July that I would have a job or probably be interning in London at the time of the concert and wouldn’t have to travel for it, I was wrong… But this did mean I could spend a lovely day with one of my best friends and explore London and of course see Harry Styles at the O2 in the evening.

On Lucy and I’s first stop on our mini adventure was the Museum of Branding and Packaging in Notting Hill. Obviously being graphic design graduates this was a must see for us. Unfortunately, there was no photography allowed in the museum which was such a shame as there’s was so much material I would love to use for reference in the future! The museum basically takes you from the Victorian era right through to the present year of everything to do with packaging. I think this museum would also be interesting for people who aren’t into design as it is very nostalgic seeing old sweet wrappers, games and well mostly anything, there was definitely and older couple while we were there doing that. A really funny thing was that it had a whole section dedicated to the packaging of One Direction (as well as The Beatles, Frozen and The Minions) which was very coincidental since we were seeing Harry that evening.

We then headed to Farm Girl which was a 15 minute walk away and we managed to get in without any waiting, wahoo! As you might have seen in my previous Notting Hill post, which I will link here. When I last tried to visit Farm Girl there was a half an hour wait outside in the snow! Although visiting there now I think it might have been worth that half an hour wait, the food was delicious and all healthy! We started off with latte’s, mine was an almond chai latte with a French Bulldog on it and Lucy had an almond latte with a beautiful heart pattern, I didn’t take a pic before I had slurped at it, sorry! We then order two options from the menu and shared it between us. We ordered the Blue Jack Tacos – BBQ pulled jackfruit, pineapple, guacamole, egg free mayonnaise & lettuce, served on two soft blue corn tortillas and Apple Pancakes – Benoit’s buckwheat mix with amber maple syrup, apple & cinnamon sprinkled with coconut shavings both of which I would highly recommend!

We then walked to the Design Museum to see the Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics exhibition which was really interesting and well curated. There was a good mixture of different mediums and lots of it, one of the most interactive pieces was the ‘All Seeing Donald Trump’ where he would give you your misfortune.

After the Design Museum we wondered around Oxford and Carnaby Street, picked up a halloumi wrap from Leon and then headed to the O2 to see Mr Styles. I’ve never been to a big concert and at the grand old age of 22 so this was an experience for me, the atmosphere was electric and the screaming when he came on was deafening! Nevertheless, I had an amazing time and Harry put on amazing show, at one point he moved to B stage which was only 10 metres away from our seats. While on the B stage he played Sweet Creature and the arena lit up like a rainbow. Earlier in the evening clear coloured bits of plastic were passed around (made by I’m guessing a devoted fan) for us to stick to our phone lights and turn on during Sweet Creature, each section had a designated colour, mine was green. The overall, effect was incredible and the effort from the fans was also!

That’s it for today’s post, overall I had a great day filled with great food and if you’re thinking about going to see Harry Styles live I would highly recommend it, (that’s if it’s not sold out already). Actually, while I’m sitting here writing this post I wish I was still in London seeing his second performance at the O2!

Lots of love, Melissa x
