So I've managed to see the Queen in person TWICE since living in London. Once for the Royal Wedding of Kate and William. We stood outside for nearly 6 hrs crammed with bazillions of people. But we saw Kate, William and of course the Queen herself. It was only less than 10 minutes the procession but still very very cool:
She's in the carriage with the yellow hat.
I took both of these pictures by the way. ;)
I also saw her again and was only about a foot away recently when she came to Greenwich, London for the rededication of the Cutty Sark. She was walking through the crowds and stopped to accept some flowers....which happened to be a girl just in front of me. She's SOOOO little and so adorable. Although I'm American, I've come to respect the Queen and what she means for the UK. She's got such a presence and is very well loved here.
I can't wait for the Diamond Jubilee celebration coming up at the beginning of June. Planning to go and have a good time (maybe even take Penny the Pig along to meet her majesty- LOL).
With this kind of celebration and with the upcoming Olympics, the products are everywhere obviously. A lot of it is incredibly ugly...but you do have to wade through it to find the real treasures.
If you want some Scentsy inspired gifts for the Diamond Jubilee...you won't have to worry about quality or something ugly...you'll have it and something unique for your home. It may not have the Queens Face on it but I know you'll love it nonetheless. x
So here's my Diamond Jubilee recommendations....there's Scenty's Tiara Warmer:
If you ever visit the UK, I'd highly recommend going to the Tower of London for just one thing---to see the crown jewels. VERY impressive. I know the Queen has a Tiara too for smaller occassions and I imagine its just as sparkly as The Tiara Warmer.
Then what would the Jubilee be without a little red, white and blue?
Red Candy Apple:
Macintosh apples, raspberry jam, berries, and strawberry milk with brown sugar.
Night-blooming jasmine softened by coconut milk and rice, enveloped in the gentlest breeze.
White florals with a touch of spring; this is the scent of fresh, clean laundry.
