The V&A Bun

The Victoria & Albert (V&A) Museum for art and design is my favourite museum. I like it because of its magnificent architecture, stunning views and its sheer beauty (it is truly one of the most inspirational places I have ever been). It has numerous sections such as glass, fashion & jewellery, ceramics, glass, Asia, Cast Courts, Paintings & Drawings, Theatre and so on (there is something for everyone). Some of my favourite parts are fashion & jewellery, theatre, the V&A Sculpture Gallery and my absolute favourites the Medieval and Renaissance Room and the Sacred Silver and Stained Glass Room because of all the religious elements. There are so many other parts of the museum I like hopefully next time I go I will do a more detailed post. When I go there however I just like to soak up the atmosphere and the exquisite beauty all around me.

On my day visit to the Museum I was also going to Covent Garden to see a dear friend of mine. I wanted a hairstyle that would be slightly more interesting than my usual simple bun which I wore on the majority of my holiday. However because I would be out and about for a long time I needed a hairstyle that would look nice but still stay put especially in the wind so I opted for a slightly fuller messy bun. 


I thought to include some other pictures of the lovely V&A in this post just to share:

The V&A is located in Brompton which is also one of my favourite districts in London in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. There are a lot of places to eat near the museum after you are done sightseeing. You must also stop for dessert at wafflemeister, the waffles and icecream are a real treat. I would really love to hear about some of your favourite places to visit and your go to vacation hairstyle.
