After an amazing evening on the Thames I made plans to go into town again on the Saturday, not one to waste time in bed (even though I was hungover), I wanted a day in London before going back up north.
I made plans to meet Charlie after lunch, but stupidly the day before I forgot to buy food (my aunt and uncle were away so the fridge was bare). This made my getting up easier, despite the fact I was hungover.
I got ready and headed in to Soho, I was after tea and I’d heard awesome things about Yumchaa. Now I had my free day in London I had to go. I might’ve been dull with my tea picking, English breakfast all the way, but I needed it for the hangover. I also had a posh cheese toastie and a slice of delicious lemon drizzle cake to accompany my brew.
Eventually I felt human so I took a stroll to the British Museum. I’m slightly obsessed with the Egyptians so I had to go. I spent quite a while wandering through the exhibit, I find their beliefs fascinating, especially surrounding their gods and death. I sent a horrific snap chat to Charlie of a mummy explaining it was me after the night before! Haha!
Eventually Charlie dragged herself into town and we met on Oxford St to do some shopping. Despite a few crowds, it was a bit later on so it was better crowd-wise than I expected. What made it easier was the tea and cupcake break in the park, where I also managed to get an outfit pic of me including my new bag that Charlie made me buy… Yes made me… Ahem (maybe not). The outfit I wore isn’t so special but the bag is beautiful, you can get it at Accessorize. It’s got enough shine to brighten up any old outfit and the size is perfect for a notebook hoarder like me.
On a whim before heading home we decided that we would head to the new Lush on Oxford St. Both avid fans, we just had to go to our Mecca… Let’s just say an hour and a half still wasn’t enough to see everything. I went mad for The Comforter shower gel and the Jungle conditioner bar. If my suitcase hadn’t have been so tiny there would’ve been more purchases from the 256 Oxford St only items!!!
Have you had a day in London recently? Have you checked out the new Lush yet? Let me know in the comments,
