London for the boy's birthday - Day 2

So this is going to be the next day of our trip to London. This was just me and my boyfriend going around London as we didn't have anything planned.  This was what I wore...

From top to bottom:
Hat - ASOS 
Top - ASOS (says HATE on back)
Leggings - American Apparel 
All the other items are same as previous day.

So to start off with we went to Hyde park and we tried out the bikes which are all dotted around London. It took us AGES to understand how we got them off the stand! It was actually really fun, and I'd really recommend getting them if your just walking around. We had them out for about an hour and rode around Hyde park and the park next to it. 
Next we walked to Buckingham Palace which we just wanted to go see! I love the royal family so it was really good to see where William and Kate kissed, and it's crazy to think the whole area being rammed when the jubilee and wedding was on. 

We then went to have some lunch in Covent Garden. We had already been told to go try the mexican called 'Wahaca' it specialises in mexican street food, so it's kind of made mexican tapas. All the dishes were soooo good! Some were quite spicy but they didn't blow your head off or anything! It was such a nice place to eat, so if your going to covent garden I would try here!

Our lunch at Wahaca
Opposite Wahaca there is this bakery which we decided that we HAD to go in, I believe it was called BB's. We got one victoria sponge cake, and a banoffee pie slice. These were so nice too! So save yourself for pudding and go there!

We then just walked up to Leicester square and onto Piccadilly circus. From there we went home. 
This time in London it was so nice! It was nice not having planned to do anything and just 'going with the flow'. Everything I did I enjoyed so definitely try and do some similar things if you can do.

Thanks for reading this part 2 of my trip!

Lots of love Alice

London for the boys birthday - Day 1

Hey, so over this weekend I went up to London for my boyfriend's birthday! It was me, my boyfriend, and his parents who went up there. We did so much stuff and it was so much fun! We went to a cocktail bar 40 floors high, comedy club, and casino!

First this is what I wore:

So this is my outfit! I tried to make it look casual, but also smart as we were going to the comedy club.
Jacket - River Island
Top - Topshop
Sunglasses - ASOS
Skirt - Topshop (Sale!)
Bag - Topshop
Boots - H&M
To curl my hair I used my Babyliss curling wand, which I love! It stays in really well, and the curls look really nice. 

So to start with we went to this amazing cocktail bar called SushiSamba, which is 40 floors high in Heron tower. It is a restaurant and a bar, but we only went to the bar. 

I ordered a Cosmopolitan which was so nice, but i did cost £12! Luckily enough I didn't pay! You seriously do pay for the view, but for something to do, and for just one drink, I really would recommend going as the views are amazing, and the cocktails are good too!!

Next we went to Leicester square and had dinner. We went to the restaurant the grill on the square, which was SO nice! I had a steak which I normally don't go for, and it was really, really good! It's literally just across the square from the Odeon theatre.

Next we went to the comedy club which I didn't really know what to expect. The comedians we saw were really good, but I can't remember their names, which is really annoying, but whoever we saw I really enjoyed myself.

It feels like I've said this for everything that I did in London but I would really recommend going to a comedy club! It was a really good night, and it was really good to do something that I haven't done before. I will definitely be going to another show!

So this was my first day in London! It was really good to do something different, as normally I go there to either see a show, or go straight to oxford street shopping!

My next post will be what we did the next day!
Thanks for reading

Outfit of the day

Hey everyone, I thought for my first proper post for ages I'd do a simple Outfit of the day. This outfit is really easy to wear, and as you will see the blouse you could dress up if you wanted to.

From top to bottom, I'm wearing ASOS sunglasses, Glamorous shirt (bought from ASOS), River Island jacket, Topshop jeans and converse, and finally the bag is from Zara. The blouse and sunglasses are new, I kind of went on a spending spree when ASOS were having 25% off!! Hopefully when I've got my exchanges back I will do a post of my recent buys, which are mainly from that one big shop I did.

Now I've typed this it seems like such a teeney post, but never mind! I will be posting more often for sure!

Lots of Love
