Diary of An Anglophile...

If you hang out in my corner of the internet long enough, you will discover am an anglophile...lover of all things London, English anywhere across the pond...including Cardiff.

In college, I studied in London and that is when my love affair began.  The culture, architecture and the accent.  I knew my husband would love the beauty and architecture of the city, so we travelled there for our honeymoon.  I cannot wait for the day my boys are old enough to appreciate a trip to see the sights London has to offer.

I have to admit, I am a bit obsessed with British television...the crime dramas, spy serials.  But the biggest love of my life (besides my boys of course) is Doctor Who and Torchwood.  I love to go Comic Con conventions...geek out with other Whovians that understand my love of The Doctor.

I had way too much fun at the Wizard World Convention this summer. I am not one of those people who like to dress up "cosplay"  but I did make myself a Tardis shirt this year...


I even splurged on a photo op and a meet and greet with Captain Jack...John Barrowman...he was awesome!!! He brought his husband, mom and dad up on the stage and told some amazing stories about the days with The Doctor and Torchwood. 


I even display my love for Doctor Who on my phone.  You would be amazed by how many people notice it and comment about their love of The Doctor too!


I also fancy clothes that sport the British flag.  When I saw this sweater at the Nordstrom's sale this summer, I knew I had to have it...



Of course I had to style up this cozy sweater with my Target booties.  Saved 20% with Target Cartwheel App (best app ever) and a $10 Shop Kick gift card, so they were a steal.  Love the mix of black and brown and the subtle heel is really comfortable.

If you ever get a chance to visit London, take it!  The final reason to love it...since it is already across the pond, it is just a quick trip to so many other destinations...especially Paris!
