A Visit To Holland Park…

You know when you see something beautiful, dresses up amazing in the most wonderful colours. You just have to film it!! No not me, haha.. The stunning peacocks…

Last week me and my husband had a rare day ‘us time’ and ‘no children’ in London. Thanks to my oldest son coming home from uni and taking his youngest brother and sister to and from school. 

First we went to find Holland Park. 

A park my husband had read about how lovely it is and wanted to see for himself.

They were right!!


Lots of wonderful things to see.

The waterfall and Peacocks being my favourite…

Can you see this fish?

Amazing how big they are!!

We had an amazing day walking around the parks and riding around London on the hire bikes…

What I wore~
Necklace ~ my old shop
Jacket~ Matalan

    I love the Cath Kidston bag! Not been to Holland Park but it looks lovely. When I was small there were peacocks everywhere now I hardly see them any more. Maybe just that I don't go to the same places but still! x #creativemondays

    Double denim . . . for years it was in the fashion wilderness, now it's the latest thing!I used to live half a mile from a park with peacocks and in the quiet around twilight we could hear them calling. Louisa xxxhttps://styleover60.wordpress.com/

    Do you know, my orchestra rehearses in Holland Park and our concerts are in Nottinghill (and I've been playing with them for 10 years) and I have NEVER been in Holland Park! Hoping to now rectify that!x
