Westminster Abbey was one of the places that we first saw in London, thus this is also one of the most unforgettable!
It is indeed a real beauty.
Too bad we weren’t able to go inside, but well, maybe next time!?
A lot of kids are graduating this year so I’m looking at what to give one of my kids. I came across this personalized promise rings that I found so cute. This is nice to give out to daughters who are celebrating their birthdays or graduation. A personalized item is definitely a great idea! The girls would treasure it and they would keep it for the rest of their lives. Yes, girls are sentimental like that. I remember when my grandmother gave me a ring, I kept it for years and years that now I still have it and I’m going to keep it for my children. Yes, girls are sentimental like that! (*wink*)
One of the beautiful sites I saw in London… The Big Ben.
The Houses of Parliament and Elizabeth Tower, commonly called Big Ben, are among London’s most iconic landmarks. Technically, Big Ben is the name given to the massive bell inside the clock tower, which weighs more than 13 tons (13,760 kg). The clock tower looks spectacular at night when the four clock faces are illuminated. SOURCE.
Historical, Authentic, One of a Kind. Love, love this place!
A special someone, whom I dearly love is celebrating her birthday soooon. She is so excited and so am I! I’m now thinking of adding more gifts for her since I only got a couple of things for her. I think she deserves more. I’m looking at musical instruments here that she might be interested. She wants to learn how to play guitar this summer so I’m pretty sure a ukulele or any musical instrument would be deeply appreciated. Let’s see how my research goes. I’m looking for ideas at this website and I’m sure I’m going to end the day by buying the one I will order in my shopping cart. We’ll see! (*wink*)
This is one of the beautiful Cathedral I ever saw in London…St. Paul’s Cathedral.
And the garden in front is just as beautiful! ♥
The dome reaches a height of 111 meters (366 ft) and weights about 66,000 ton. Eight arches support the dome. On top of the dome is a large lantern with a weight of 850 ton.
560 steps lead visitors along three galleries all the way to the top of the dome. The first gallery, the Whispering Gallery, just inside the dome, is renowned for its acoustics. The second gallery, the Stone Gallery, is situated at a height of 53 meters (174 ft) on the outside of the dome, right above the colonnade. On top of the dome, at a height of 85 meters (279 ft), is the narrow Golden Gallery, which encircles the lantern’s base. From here you have a magnificent view over the City.
The impressive facade at the west side of the church consists of a large portico and pediment. A relief on the tympanum depicts the conversion of Paul and was created in 1706. The portico is flanked by two towers which weren’t part of the original plan. Wren added them at the last minute, in 1707.SOURCE.
I’m preparing a unique and ofcourse grand gift to the Husband for our anniversary and I’m trying to build a list. I want to be useful and would last for a long while too. He is a very simple person so he has a few things that he uses everyday. I think razor is one of the things that he values the most. Yes, I told you, he is that simple! I’m positive that he will love these straight razor designs that I found online. It looks very unique.
I love that I can give Hubby whatever and he appreciates it fully. These razor things with a cool design, I think he will love it! ♥♥♥
