Lifestyle: My Trip To London 2012

I took a little trip to London at the weekend, well I had a lovely time and I thought I would show you a few pictures. I won't bore you with all of them because I did get a bit snap happy, whipping my Iphone out at every opportunity lol.

So here are a few of my personal favourites, it might be along one lol:

The weather was gorgeous, a little cold at times but was perfect, it was a shopping trip so we didn't do many touristy things. On Saturday we went to Oxford Street and on Sunday we went to Covent Gardens and then Camden. I think you probably need 2 weeks to do and see everything lol.

We really want to go back and do everything else, two days really isn't long enough.

Of course we did a bit of shopping, it was my mums birthday on Monday so I bought her a ring from Pandora, which she loves and we also went to Selfridges, as we don't have one in Leeds. If you ever go, you must go to the Christmas floor, it is amazing.

My mum did pick up a few Christmas decorations, but I just soaked up the atmosphere, it was amazing, they were playing Christmas music and it made me feel all festive and warm inside, I loved it.

Then we popped to John Lewis for a bit of lunch, fyi they do amazing salmon and cream cheese bagels, and afterwards we went to heaven.

The beauty hall.........
OPI, this is my fantasy lol :-)
I will show you my new polish purchases soon, keep an eye out.

I did pick up something for my bedroom from Camden market....
It's so cute, I love anything shabby chic.

Lastly I picked up a little souvenir:

I loved every minute of our trip, the hotel we stayed in was lovely, it was the Hilton in Canary Wharf, definitely recommend it, our room was huge. I did take some pictures on my actual camera but it doesn't have any charge currently, so I may pop them in my next pictures of the week post instead. I even enjoyed the coach journey there and back, I re-watched a bit of TOWIE on the Ipad, my mum was mortified, lets just say she's not really a fan, I don't know why lol.

Anywho, I will definitely going back, hopefully sooner rather than later, if you made it through this rambly post, I applaud you!

XOXO Claire
