This weekend I had a lovely weekend in London seeing my best friend, who is a fashion student down there. I was excited to do some serious shopping, and just chill and relax, and have a well deserved catch up.
On friday, we went into the huge Topshop on Oxford Road which was great. I loved all of the different concessions which they had in the store. We also picked up some Lola's cupcakes which tasted divine. We went to this incredibly cute burger place called Kua Aina, just off Oxford Circus, and it was incredible. I had the most amazing chicken and halloumi burger, which sweet potato fries. That evening we headed to Winter Wonderland, it was so big it was unbelievable, it was like a theme park. We had such a great time, we went on rides, and bought mulled wine and cider which was delightful. The atmosphere was great, and the place was filled with endless food and drink stalls, including a turning carousel ride which I was rather excited about.
Saturday, was the day we had planned to hit the shops big time, and we did that rather well. However, before we started we needed some fuel. We had intended to go The Breakfast Club, but the queue was huge and we was starving. We went next door to a place called Ko Chai which was great and we had some amazing blueberry pancakes. We then headed to Canary Wharf where we went ice skating, which I loved and it is always so enjoyable. We then hit the shops. I totally fell in love with & Other Stories, that shop has some seriously good skincare and makeup bits, and I picked up an amazing hand cream for just £4. We then went to Liberty as it is always so fabulous at Christmas, I picked up a lovely Christmas tree decoration. The Charlotte Tilbury flagship store has just opened in Covent Garden, so we went in for a peek. It is nicely laid out, and it was seriously busy, but I resisted as my mum told me she has bought me a few bits for Christmas. The Kiko store is opposite, so went in to have a nosy and it was great. I bought a few things which will be in a haul post sometime this week. I really wanted to visit the Lush Oxford Street store, so we headed there it was so busy. I did pick up a few bits and bobs which was rather exciting, including the cranberry face mask.
Before I headed home at 5.30 yesterday, we went to the Abercrombie & Fitch store. I bought a new tee for myself, and a Christmas present for my sister. For dinner we went into this amazing pizza and pasta place, where you go and order at the chef's bar, and they make it there and then in front of you. It was great and the food was lovely, and me and my best friend spent 2 hours in there just chatting, putting the world to right as always.
I had a fabulous weekend, and it's brilliant when you can relax and just catch up on everything. There is going to be many hauls over this week of everything which I bought, which I am excited to share with you.
