36 Hours in London.


I think my love for London knows no bounds. Given the chance again, I would probably move myself down there in a heartbeat. Baby, cat, boyfriend and all.

Anyway, it had been a couple of years since I last visited so I was itching to see what new things the big smoke had to offer.

When we got there we checked our bags into the station baggage hold (daylight robbery!) and went straight to St. Pancras for a Sourced Coffee..

I'm a creature of habit don't you know?

Then we went straight to Oxford Street for a wander. And by 'wander' I mean a trip to The Disney Store and an impromptu (totally planned) trip to Ben's Cookies.

We then went to go watch a matinee performance of The Play That Goes Wrong. I swear, it was the funniest thing I have seen all year. I can't recommend it enough. It's kind of obvious comedy, but that in my book, is the best kind of comedy.

After the theatre we went along the Southbank before heading to our hotel for a M&S bed picnic and an early night.

I had actually booked the Hoxton in Shoreditch, and what a little gem it was! The room, especially the shower, was insane. It was just my aesthetic too. Marble, dark wood, a massive mirror and gold accents. Perfect. You can catch all the highlights on my Instagram.

But better than all that? There was a Donut Time just around the corner. I will never look at supermarket donut the same way again. I have been spoilt, spoilt I tell ya! I tried a Bellatwix Lestrange, Love at First Bite and maybe a bite, or two, of the Houston, We Have Biscoff.

I can confirm that all of the above were absolutely delicious.

The next day was an early start. I had the London Dungeons booked for 10:30, something I have always wanted to do, and we still had to visit Tower Bridge to walk the glass floor. Both of which I booked online beforehand and managed to get a small discount on. I don't really recommend the dungeons, unless you have young adults with you who would probably appreciate it a bit more than we did. It was enjoyable none the less.

After Tower Bridge we thought it would be a good idea to walk to St. Pauls and have a look at the Harry Potter wands.. I mean, it didn't look that far from where we were. A Shake Shack pitstop later and we finally made it. It was so magical. I saw Platform 9 3/4 whilst at Kings Cross/St. Pancras and it was in no way as special as this was.

I then did a little bit of shopping in Covent Garden, you know, the usual; Kiko, The Ordinary.. Tiffany & Co.

Well, Christmas is only round the corner!

Carnaby Street Christmas lights were next, with the tiniest bit of sweet treat shopping in the form of Humming Bird Bakery and Bubble Waffle, again, I recommend both. You know you can trust me when it comes to my cakes. It also included a kind of disappointing trip to Primark. It was just so busy and a little bit of a mess really.

I think it is fair to say we fitted a lot in, and I can't wait for our next adventure.

Borough Market, Duck & Waffle, and the Sky Garden are still high on my list of things to do, that, and Abbey Road. How about you?
