London!

Hello Everyone! Long time no blog :)

This is just a quick blog about my girl's weekend in London before I do a nail post.

So I had an absolutely fantastic time! We had so much fun and we laughed and laughed until we cried :) Seriously, we had stomach aches we laughed so much! I won't bore you with any of the funny stories because most of them are 'you had to be there' ones! I will say though that one of them involved me apologising very sincerely to a photographer in Madame Tussauds for getting in her way and then realising that she wasn't real ;)

The weekend was jam packed and we were on the go constantly. So much so that it's taken me the rest of this week to recover. I was so exhausted! All worth it though.
We went to Madame Tussauds, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Harrods, Portabello Market, Notting Hill, 2 musicals (Grease and Thriller) and a Salsa club!
Unfortunately we didn't have time to go anywhere that I could get some nail polish, maybe next time!
We were proper little tourists :)

I have to say that I do not recommend taking a suitcase on the underground! We had to get them up and down so many stairs! Plus when we got to our hotel we discovered our rooms were on the top floor (5 flights) and there was no lift! It nearly killed us.

Here are a few pics we took -

I could show you a million more but that will do for now :)
Even though we didn't go shopping anywhere that did nail stuff we did do some shopping at Portabello Market where I got 2 dresses and a really cute compact mirror.
All in all it was a fab weekend. We laughed the whole time, ate way too much (but then sweated it all off on the tube!) and came back absolutely shattered! We're already planning our next one...
In the mean time though I have my birthday to look forward to in September! Think I will be going back to Newbury for it and maybe having a few drinks :) It's will be my 30th so I'm very excited! Also got my cousins wedding in October to plan for. It's going to be in Scotland where I've never been so may make a bit of a holiday of it. Need to go dress shopping!

Great photos! Even though I only live an hour or so from London I love going there and being a tourist!

Let me know when you're heading back to the homeland - we need to do lunch, drink wine and talk glitter!

What a fun trip! It's only your best friend that you can laugh with like that. That was really funny your aplogizing to a wax figure. Love all the photos. What a job lugging your suitcases around and then up 5 flights! I had to laugh at all your snacks and drinks. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Glad your back safe and sound.
