After really enjoying the recent lifestyle posts by my favourite bloggers Lily Melrose and Lily Pebbles I decided to have a go at a lifestyle post myself (still with some beauty and fashion thrown in. obvs.) by making a little photo diary of my weekend away in London. My boyfriend has recently moved back up there so after I finished work on Friday I travelled up on the train reading 'The Perks of being a Wallflower' which I am now obsessed with after falling in love with the film. On Saturday we tubed into central for a spot of shopping, an incredible burger and oreo milkshake at Byrons and to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the musical. I'm a massive musical theatre geek so really enjoyed it, the set and tech in particular were amazing. I'd also really recommend Byrons for their dream of a milkshake creation alone! We actually spent ages walking around London after the show because you don't have people elbowing you out the way every five seconds at night, although there were some crazy drunk people- proven by the party bus we saw... Sunday was a super lazy day that consisted of my favourite causal crop and levis outfit, a topknot, Essie 'fiji' and walking into town purely to purchase an Elle magazine so I could get the Bumble and Bumble freebie. As if every blogger wouldn't do the same! On Monday I thought I'd make the most of being in London before I travelled back home so met up with some of my best uni friends for food at the incredible Breakfast Club, a mooch around Spitalfields market and some casual drinks that made us feel like high flying city dwellers. Strawberry and lime cider is my favourite because it tastes like an alcoholic petit filous, amazing! The Breakfast Club was also totally worth the bloggers hype, the decor alone was so kitsch and cool and my food 'The All American' provided me with the best pancakes I've ever had, although I do now need to go on a health kick this week... All in all I had a really great time and hope to do lots more lifestyle posts like this again in the future.
