Christmas in LondonSunday, December 14, 2014
Last week I went to London for a couple of days. Although I visit London, quite frequently for work, I rarely spend time going round central London, or doing the touristy bits that people like to do when visiting the capital. With Henry in meetings for two days, I found an excuse to be a little tourist for a couple of days, and well what a perfect time to go, when London is decked out in Christmas decorations.
I rarely ever go shopping in London, mainly because it's so damn busy, to be honest I hate any busy shop, so I knew that I wasn't going to get a lot but it was nice to visit the likes of Harrods and Hamley's to see their Christmas decorations and soak in the atmosphere. I pottered down Carnaby Street and found american store Brandy Melville. Amazingly the shop was practically empty so I shopped to my hearts content and managed to leave with a bag full. Whoops. I fell in love with basically everything, as it's very simple, a lot of dark colours and well everything was just what I like right now. I could of bought the whole shop if I was honest. I also visited Victoria's Secret of course on Bond Street, and that shop is just beautiful. I have decided that after seeing the pictures from the latest fashion show that I will be making a more conscious effort to work out.
We also visited Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, which was full of christmas market stalls and fairground rides, I loved the atmosphere and the smell of all the doughnuts and crepes, but sadly it was raining meaning we didn't hang around too long, but I loved walking round and feeling all Christmas-y. We had a really lovely stay in London, and I just loved walking around soaking up the decorations and the hustle and bustle of the city. If you'd like to see my vlogs of us in London, you can do here and well you can see what I'm getting up to in general this December (not a lot) on my YT channel :)
