In the beautiful month of June, I spent a full ten days in the city-of-the-moment: London. With the Olympics coming, the magnificent city was ablaze with contagious excitement. I have always loved the city and have spent many a summer there, but the summer of 2012 was definitely one of the more amazing trips. The city's most unique aspect, which continues to astound me, is the combination of its quaint charm and, at the same time, its stunning night-life and energy. London's unique old-world architecture has brought a sort of character to the city which is lost among other modern areas. Throughout these photographs, you can see the beautiful details in every building of the city. The holiday was already incredibly special but became even more so when I ran into supermodel Arizona Muse next to Harrods! She is absolutely stunning and although I only saw her for a moment or so, I will always remember it.
Other highlights of the trip include the Victoria and Albert Ballgown exhibition, and a quick trip to the historic town of Bath. The Ballgown exhibition was an incredible collection of luxurious dresses from the 1950's to today. Creations from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, Erdem, Jonathan Saunders and more were on display at the beautiful museum. It was an incredible experience, as the retrospective portrayed how fashion has changed and evolved over the years. Anyone who is venturing to the city of London this summer is in for a treat, as always. This summer, London is the place to be.

During the trip, in between hundreds of visits to Harrods and Selfridges, my family and I went sight-seeing throughout the city. The tranquil town of Bath was brimming with hauntingly beautiful architecture and rich history. St. Paul's cathedral was a wondrous piece of architecture, with gorgeous, intricate designs on every dome. Those sights, along with the endless shopping opportunities, depicts just how much the wonderful city has to offer.
