Bluebells and Fairy Tales at Hyde Park

Whilst I confessed to having a slight phobia of mud in a recent blogpost, the part of me that grew up with fairytales about magical lands and creatures that lived within the woods couldn't resist this little adventure.

After an hour of cycling around Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, we stumbled upon this bluebell-filled area and didn't hesitate to hop off our bikes to explore. Living in London, it's easy to get swallowed up by the buzz of the city. When an opportunity strikes for you to cross over to a safe haven away from the hustle and bustle of the roaring streets, you seize it and enjoy the temporary escape.

An event like this calls for an explorer's uniform; form-fitting dresses and leather trousers are simply not allowed. I opted for a swing dress that danced along with me when I spun around and around on the grass and caught the wind as we rode through the soft breeze. 

We used to live on a road lined with cherry blossom trees and it was truly a magnificent sight as soon as spring arrived. On the way to school, I'd gaze up as the petals waltzed through the air and be lost in thought at the sheer beauty of it. Naturally, wrapping myself in this pink hued coat is my way of taking the cherry blossoms along with me.

You know what else a swing dress is good for?

Prior to this, we attended a Yo! Sushi making course and *brushes shoulders* created these Japanese parcels like raw fish makin' ninjas. A food post on this will be coming up in the next few days on my food blog!
