The day I was waiting for and dreaming about for a month finally came!
We took a taxi to Kensington Gardens, and were dropped off right in front of the Royal Albert Hall. What happened afterwards was an absolutely SURREAL experience. The second we stepped out of the cab and waited to cross the road to get into the cordoned off path into the massive glass house set up in the middle of Kensington Gardens, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE was taking photos of us. Random passerbys on iphones, people with digital cameras, DSLRs, and once we entered the cordoned off path, all we could hear was the incessant clicking of the cameras which lined up on the sides of the path, and all I could think about is DO NOT FALL (as my friend Claire was walking SO quickly and falling in my 6.5 inch heels in front of all the press would've been SO bad.). I can safely say now that I made it to the show without falling, I did almost trip a few times, but managed to steady myself!
