Weekend recap...

Hello my lovelies! 

So I thought today I would just do a bit of a weekend recap for you guys and let you know what I've been up to. I've just spent the weekend with friends really. On Friday I spent it with my now ex-work chummies. One of the people who I used to work with, Luke, has decided to leave Smiths so a bunch of us gathered and had a nice meal and gave him a card and presents and all of that lovely stuff. I'm kind of getting used to not missing work but just missing the people that I worked with if that makes sense. A few of them are leaving now so I don't miss it so much because work wouldn't be the same as it was when I worked there and there's new management and all of that type of thing. I used to get on really well with my old manager and I'm not sure the new one would have really fitted well with me. So it's little steps but I'm beginning to not miss it so much.  


On Saturday Me, Gina and my friend Emma made our way to London for a "MIC Party" (Made in Chelsea for those that don't know). It definitely wasn't what we expected but we still had a good night and we had a really nice Hotel room which we loved!! I definitely know where I'm going to be staying for the Cosmo Blog Awards this year. We stayed in the Hilton literally next to Paddington station. I chose it because it was exceedingly convenient and I managed to get a executive room really cheap which was good because it meant we could get free drinks from the executive lounge which as you all probably know are pretty pricey as soon as you enter the London area. I managed to wear heels!!! Which if you read regularly that is kind of a big deal for me, I can't usually wear heels for more than and hour but I was having a really good day like health wise/breathing wise and I was  in my heels for like a good 3 hours which is unheard of for me :). It was just nice to spend time with Gina and Emma really. Me and Emma used to work together quite a lot but then I got sicker my days became shorter and less frequent but we're still good friends so it was just nice to spend time with her. 

Tallest Room on the planet. I swear! 
Dressing Gowns :-D  
Beautiful Friends :) 
Taxi time :) 
We plan on actually doing a trip where it is what we expect like the London Eye, or Madam Tussauds or Harrods because you cannot go wrong with Harrods. Considering how much time I spend in London I have never actually done the whole London Eye, Madam Tussauds  thing. I never really get the chance to just be a tourist. I reckon that must be the same wherever you live or visit frequently. I assume New Yorkers probably don't do the tourist things that I would probably do if I were to ever go over there. I think people just tend to take where they live for granted or if you're like me when you're in the place you're to busy doing the things you need to do to actually do the things a tourist would do while they would be visiting. Like I have never visited Buckingham Palace, I've walked past it, Driven past it even had my picture taken in front of it but never actually been inside it even though it's something I really want to do.

All train anxiety was non-existent this weekend which I was super chuffed about. I think it is all in the planning. There was no rushing for trains which I hate doing when we left they called the train platform 20 minutes before it was due to leave which meant we could just stroll to the train without feeling pressured to get on it. It sounds so stupid when I say it but all of these things seem to matter to me. I also brought lots of Millie's cookies which I tried to like force feed Emma and Gina but they weren't having any of it LOL. 

All in all it has been a great weekend spent with great friends. I hope your weekends have been great as well guys. 

Chat soon guys

  1. I did the whole touristy thing this summer, with Madame Tussauds, London Eye, and Harrods - we even saw Wicked on the west-end. I would really recommend it, although it really does take it out of you! By the end you just want the comfort of your own bed! It's not exactly something you do every day though! xxx

    1. I've done Wicked 3 times Jemma, I LOVED it! I did Harrods and Wicked with my friend Gina and that honestly took it out of me. I think if I decide to do it I'm going to have to do it over a week or something to give me time to rest in-between lol.
