Very Victoria

London has my name written all over it, literally.

“Long ago life was clean
Sex was bad, called obscene
And the rich were so mean
Stately homes for the Lords
Croquet lawns, village greens
Victoria was my queen
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria”

– The Kinks, Victoria

“I was born, lucky me
In a land that I love
Though I am poor, I am free
When I grow I shall fight
For this land I shall die
Let her sun never set
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria”

– The Kinks, Victoria

“Land of hope and gloria
Land of my Victoria
Land of hope and gloria
Land of my Victoria
Victoria, ‘toria
Victoria,…” – The Kinks, Victoria

Hopefully whatever place you love has your name written all over it too.


xoxo- Victoria

Sometimes I feel like a failure, not good enough, not pretty enough, dumb.. etc. This is not a post asking for compliments, it’s sharing the reality that Instagram likes to hide. No one is perfect x 🌻 Today while I continue the last bits of all my assignments I will be day dreaming of my future trip to Verona this June. I was contact by the lovely @fleekretreats team who actually do a mini retreat about 30 minutes from there! The retreat focuses on slow-living to improve overall wellness and happiness (sign me up!) The first one coming up is June 20-23, SWIPE to see where it is, you will be mind blown. You’ll be staying in a villa, have yoga and cooking classes, wine tasting, posture health sessions and a private chef. If you want to learn more or book your stay check out @fleekretreats βœ¨πŸ€©πŸ’• Use my code FLEEKVIC so you can receive a goody bag upon arrival πŸ€— (images provided by the fleek team) xx London in the spring is just magical ✨πŸ₯°πŸŒ· Someone had a little too much fun at the fair yesterday. Or is there such thing? Honestly loved being hands free with my @greenowlbags [gifted] They have such cool colours ✨🍦🍭πŸŽͺ
