My Weekend in London

Sorry this has taken me while to post about – its been a bit of a crazy week since I got back from London!

Our hotel was fantastic; right next to Marble Arch and walking distance to Oxford Street! This was our room, and the freebies they gave us since it was my birthday… as you can see I got straight into relaxing mode!

Anyway; I had an AMAZING time in London and the shopping was great fun although I didn’t actually buy that much. I don’t know about you but when there are so many shops sometimes I can’t make a decision about what to buy!

I did however get my Ruby Woo MAC lipstick, and I love it! It applies really easily, the colour stay put really well and I think its fab.

Usually I wear quite a lot of eye makeup but with this lipstick I think that quick sweep of eyeliner and lashings of mascara are enough. I think it gives quite a retro look!

So after purchasing this on the first day I couldn’t wait to wear it and teamed it with a very fluffy white jumper (from Topshop) my leather trousers (from H&M) and my favourite Kurt Keiger boots… and this was the result!

On our second day my husband took to me to the V&A museum to a 1980’s fashion show. It showcased all of the trends from the decades and was really interesting, some of the clothes were …interesting… and perhaps not my personal style but it was a really great exhibition and definitely worth a look if you find yourself in London. http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/exhibitions/exhibition-from-club-to-catwalk-london-fashion-in-the-80s/about-the-exhibition/

After this we visited covent garden which is always an interesting place to visit, its such a fun environment! That night we decided to go back to Covent Garden and went to Dishoom which is a fab little Indian Restaurant – its takes a while to get in but its definitely worth the wait http://www.dishoom.com/ . I was going to wear this outfit…

but decided it was far too cold and switched back to my leather trousers and a big fluffy black jumper I have which is sooooo warm!

On our third day before driving home we went around the shops again and I discovered this gorgeous little bucket bag but at nearly £80 I decided it was a little too expensive but I wanted to show it to you all anyway… its from ‘and other stories’ which you should all have a look at it you get a chance! http://www.stories.com/ its a shop owned by the same Company as H&M but a bit more high end.

I did make one other purchase which was this fabulous tartan scarf from Topshop… its soft, warm and I totally love it!
