I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Leave it to fashion bloggers to congregate at the gates of a palace to go through a program of illegal activities including collective stomping on royally-trimmed grass, watching R-rated pigeon lovemaking and deceiving squirrels with outstretched (empty) hands for vantage point for capture. We didn’t catch any squirrels. Or saw pigeon giving birth. SADNESS. A handful of London fashion bloggers met at Kensington Palace gardens to celebrate Jackie the Platform Princess’ birthday, where we first threw a ball in a corner at the Orangery cafe, then spilled out onto the marble porch drunk on tea & scones (some drunk on 2-for-1 beer ehem), eventually rolling onto illegal grass.

I had so much fun I basically want it to be Jackie’s birthday everyday. SORRY Jackie, someone needs to be sacrificed.

    This is the post I was about to do – but you did it better. I’ll still try, tho: that’s the whole point of inspiration.

    Weirdly coincidentally, I just did a post about you:

    Kind of a prequel to something about the day itself. The Perfect Day. The Princess March.

  25. Awww, your photos are stunning Shini (I know I sound like a broken record). I must apolgise, I think you may have suffered a bit of guilt by association with you sitting next to us naughty bloggers, on the end of the table.

    To clarify: Shini was not drinking and acting raucously. She was drinking tea with bugs in it, haha.

    I wish it was my birthday too fyi; you guys were all so generous and fun and it was one of the best days ever! I’ve just seen a photo of you doing a back bend on Jen’s blog- amazing!


  26. […] Shini von Park & Cube hat ein Treffen der Londoner Fashionbloggerinnen fotografisch festgehalten und wie sollte es mit ästhetisch sensibilisierten Menschen auch anders sein, die Mädels haben es sich richtig schick gemacht. In den Kensington Palace Gardens gab es Tee & Scones, und wohl auch illegale Aktivitäten … aber was tut man nicht alles für das perfekte Foto! Mehr Fotos und einen kleinen Bericht von den lovely Girls gibt es hier! […]

  27. […] from the other day at Kensington […]
