Last week I headed to London for the day, to visit the Alexander McQueen ‘Savage Beauty’ exhibition and spend some time leisurely exploring one of my favourite places in the world! I wasn’t able to take any pictures inside the exhibition as it was prohibited. At first I was a little put out about the fact that I wouldn’t be able to fully document my visit, however on reflection I was really content in being able to give the exhibition the full concentration it deserved. I walked each room silently, reading every bit of writing there was and taking in everything on a sensory level. I like the temporary nature of that visit, that there’s nothing to remember it by but my memories. I’m going to start leaving my phone switched off more often.
We spent the morning before the exhibition sauntering around Borough market and then took a flying visit to Liberty. Afterwards, we headed to Comptoir Libanais in South Kensington for dinner. The quaint little canteen is buzzing with life inside, serving traditional Lebanese food. I have the ‘moussakka fattet’, and my sister and I shared Baklavas and an orange almond cake for pudding. The iced rose mint tea was also to die for.
