My weekend in London

Hola! So its probably safe to say I had the best weekend ever. It mainly consisted of eating, shopping, a little bit more shopping and travelling. I have completely and utterly shopped my self out this weekend - thank you London for the lovely weekend and thank you also for giving my bank card a massive battering.

My city break weekend started by going for a leisurely walk into town and grabbing a quick Costa to warm my heart before catching the train to London. I made sure I was more than prepared for the trip  by arming myself with Company mag and  my trusty head phones. Also due to the fact I bought Kyle reems of Wonka Chocolate and other varieties of American Candy - we had a gift bag full of treats to munch on during our journey heading to the big smoke.

Upon arrival at Kings Cross, we immediately rushed onto to the underground and caught the tube to the ever so classy district of London - St Paul's. Since it was Kyle's birthday I booked us in at the Grange St Paul's Hotel which was located right by the St Paul's Cathedral - what a wonderful view. I don't usually do the whole touristy thing as I find it a bit cliche but whilst dragging our cases to the hotel I stopped and caught a snap of the beautiful building. 

After arguing with Siri/Google Maps & Kyle on numerous occasions we finally managed to find the hotel. One word - wow. What an utterly cosmopolitan and contemporary building! We could hardly believe our luck when we were escorted to our superior suite. The room was amazing. We even got mongrammed robes and a docking station (jazzy eh!). The main highlight for me was the power shower - it had a waterfall shower head and 3 other components shooting out steaming hot water in every direction, absolute luxury. 

As lovely as the hotel room was, unfortunately we spent hardly any time there due to other plans. After freshening up and grabbing a bite at ITSU (awesome sushi, salad and noodle bar) we headed off to Drury Lane to see Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. With this being my first show, initially I didn't really know what to expect, all I'll say is the show more than exceeded my expectations and that you MUST go and see it. It's a real show stopper and made me howl throughout. 

On Saturday morning we dragged ourselves out of bed early doors, put on our robes and strolled down to the pool and sauna which was unreal! I would more than recommend the St Paul's Grange, you really do receive  five star services. After that we shot off to Oxford Street of course. We spent far too much money and far too much time in both Nike Town & Victoria Secrets but the main thing is we enjoyed ourselves. Here's a little peek on some of my purchases:

To finish our delightful weekend off we took selfies and tucked into a yummy pork and apple casserole, served with creamy mash and veg & then proceeded to the sofa for a day filled with Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The Great British Bake Off. What a beyond perfect weekend!
