&WHAT | KATHARINA GROSSE & THE NED.

Sunday 15th October 2017.

Nearly two weeks after miss Caitlin’s birthday. The past two weeks have been manic with weddings and celebrations so it was today that I planned a fancy day out for us.

It started in South London in Peckham, an area I had never explored – surprising after nearly seven years here. It is true, if you live North you rarely ever make it down South. With the sun beaming down we decided to give ourselves our own walking tour of the area. Nearly an hour later with blistered feet – somewhow still seemed like a good idea.

Our first stop on the birthday trip was The South London Gallery. An exhibit by Katharina Grosse was on at the gallery which is SICK. It ends on 3rd December so there is plenty of time to go.

Katharina Grosse is a German artist. She had an exhibit on in NYC at Fort Tildens that I really wanted to go to but never had the time to make it out there. Pics of it here – incredible. So happy her work finally made it to London.

The colours and scale of the piece were stunning and of course, not to mention, excellent for the gram.

Our day of activities didn’t stop there. We made our way back to the stomping ground and went to Millie’s at The Ned. They have a Sunday Feast where you have an hour and a half to eat all of the Oysters, Lobster, Roast (with all the trimmings), desserts and sweets your heart desires. We certainly did exactly that. Ok, rolling myself home now.

&WHAT | FRANCAIS BITCHES.

Je ne parle pas Francais.

I tried taking a French class last year at the Institue de Francais and well, nothing much came of it. I can tell you how to conjugate verbs but ask me what I want to have off the wine menu and I’m at a loss for words.

Bit of a shame because I do love a French wine, French man, French meal and especially French hats. Typically not a hat person but was feeling the beret vibes and borrowed it from a friend.

Sometimes (all times) you just have to wear and do what you want. This week, I’m doing exactly that.
