 A puppy coming out of a flower, because why not?

 I don't know why but I want/need this wine cooler in my life.

All of this belongs to you. I feel like that is a really nice museum sentiment.

 A bit annoyed at myself for thinking I'd remember what the story behind this was, and now I can't even remember the name of the statue..

 Love this ceiling, the colours are stunning.

 Felt a spiritual connection with the middle angel. All the other angels seemed to have a purpose of playing an instrument &c. whereas the middle one is just posing there as if he either had no clue or just had a fabulous attitude.

I've been meaning to visit the Victoria & Albert museum for so long that it really was high time I did it. And I wish I had done it ages ago because now I'm in love with the place. It is so beautiful and everything is so visually pleasing. I found out that I have a thing for the colour combination of white and gold, as well as for pictures of myself in centuries-old mirrors. I rediscovered the feelings I had in the period in my life a few years back when I was really into keys. I also thought about the strange(ish) fact that queen Victoria is always portrayed in her later years and the sculpture of a young Victoria is probably one of my favourite things at the V&A. A bit envious of that rose flower crown, too. If you've seen my selfies with Victoria and Albert on Instagram, you might have been reminded that they're my favourite royals. I half on purpose forgot that I was recommended to have a scone at the V&A, so now I have a reason to go back soon. If I lived any closer, I could see myself spending a lot of me-time here, haha:-) So beautiful.
