Lifestyle | London Living.. For 2 Days.


Hello my loves! I have been such a terrible blogger recently but I’ve had a-lot going on and unfortunately time has gotten the better of me. But I am back with a little life-post to fill you all in on my London Adventures! And a bit of a mini-haul of course..

I was going to London for a concert so my uni friends and I made the most of us all being on the same landmass and had a little reunion! After the long journey we all arrived at Kings Cross and were gasping for some cocktails! My friend Max (being a Londoner) recommended an amazing bar and restaurant called The Driver. We all had some rooftop cocktails in the sunshine before heading downstairs to have some yummy lunch. 

The menu was really reasonably priced and the service was first class; the staff were really accommodating and put our luggage away so we wouldn’t have to lug it up and down the stairs! It’s only a 5-10 minute walk from Kings Cross so if you were ever about I’d really recommend it to you!

After our lovely afternoon in the sunshine we popped to our hostel to get ready for One Direction! I wore a dress from my absolute favourite website Ark, and with socks from Topshop and shoes from River Island. Charlotte’s dress was from New Look and she paired it with some casual Converse.

Always with the pints of wine.

Claiming Liam was looking at me..

We had such a ball at the concert! Wembley Stadium was overwhelming and the boys seemed to really love it and appreciate every one of their fans, which was lovely. I had major 1D comedown the next day! After the concert we went for a little midnight walk around London. It was so peaceful and there were some amazing views of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. 

To combat my 1D depression I visited my favourite place, Illamasqua! The Beak Street store was actually amazing. The staff couldn’t have been more informative and I picked up the long-awaited Matte Veil and the Matte Lip Liquid in ‘Forbidden’. Both are from the new summer collection and both matte so they are right up my street.

After popping to Brixton for some family time with my lovely cousins I was lucky enough to go see a musical! My very generous dad bought me a ticket to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it was incredible! It’s been two years since I last saw a musical so I loved every minute. The songs were catchy and the set was out of this world - the whole thing even brought me to tears! 

Sunday meant goodbyes and home time which is always sad.. but airports mean duty free! I picked up my first Vera Wang fragrance – the gorgeous Princess, a sweet fragrance perfect for summer, as well as repurchasing my current favourite MAC Studio Fix. I also treated myself to a MAC brush! I’ve never owned one and I’ve heard so much about them. I went for the 287 that is a duo-fibre eye-shadow brush. I bought it for concealer application as I find concealer to be one of the hardest products to set nicely. And lastly I repurchased my favourite Body Shop Body Butter in Almond. This was a complete steal at only £3.70! So I couldn’t turn it down.

And that is it! A hectic few days with less shopping than I’d imagined but still a brilliant weekend none-the-less. I hope you enjoyed this little nosey post, I’ll get myself organised over the week-end and be back to blogging as usual then! Promise. xo
