A few days in London

A few days in London… it was nice!

I’m loving this recent surge of ‘ a week in my life’ posts that I keep seeing in my timeline (thanks Instagram) from bloggers I like to read. There’s only so many lipstick or foundation reviews I can take and I guess it’s a nice way to get to know the blogger behind the blog.Ok, so I don’t have Instagram but I still wanted to share some snaps with you from a recent trip to London. I spent a few days in the capital as a kind of pre-birthday treat with my BFF Helen, amazingly we didn’t shop much but opted to soak up some culture instead.We went to the National Portrait Gallery to see the Lucian Freud exhibition, took long walks around Chelsea which was where we stayed and snapped up theatre tickets for a tenner thanks tolastminute.com.food in london

Pre-theatre we met my dad and my brother, who is pictured below btw wearing one of his own Cones and Hole T-shirt designs for dinner at the St.Martins Lane Hotel restaurant, Asia de Cuba.

Breakfast at Pret, lunch and a cheeky snog (frozen yoghurt) on Kings Road was followed of course by Afternoon Tea. Instead of sticking to the traditional we opted to try the ultra modern Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the Sanderson which was set in their Japanese garden, stunning!my look in london

Seeing as London is probably the best place for a shopaholic to shop you’d assume I’d go mad with the plastic every time I visit, but oddly whenever I go I never buy anything really. I think it’s the crowds or the pressure to the splash the cash, just puts me off.

However, having said that I did buy two things, the cream studded jumper (link) above fromTopshop which I’m obsessed with and my new favourite accessory, an Elkin skull bracelet from Kabiri.

Oh and just because, I decided to throw in a random London OOTD too.

Jeans – Gap Legging Jean
Blouse – Zara cream ruffle
Jacket – Warehouse waterfall front blazer
Wedges – Bronx grey suede raffia wedges
Watch – Micheal Kors
Cuff – Accessorize
Bracelet – Elkin
Scarf – Primark (amazing)

Most people live in the city and go the country at the weekend, and that’s posh and aristocratic, but actually to live in the country and come to London when you can’t take it anymore is different. (Damien Hirst
