London Calling // Experiencing the city life

Being from a 'town' where only tractors, sheep and general quietness is common we thought it would be a good idea to push the boat out and actually get on a plane to somewhere a bit more exciting. I am just back from a trip to London and it is safe to say that I have been left with sore feet with extensive walking, a sore neck from my Olympus PEN swinging and an overwhelming wanderlust! Be prepared for a load of photographs (Instagram worthy I hope) of sights, more importantly food, and a running commentary of quite possibly one of my favourite places in the world. 

Take one, when in London you have to take as many photographs of the red buses, black taxis, red underground signs and red telephone boxes as possible. Here's a few that I captured!

The iconic red telephone box with Tiffany & Co in the background! Those gems were WOW, if anyone would like to send me some feel free to drop me an e-mail haha! In all seriousness though I really loved the relaxed feel of Bond Street. It made a nice change window shopping and not pushing through crowds!

We didn't make our way onto the London Eye as the very look of the height of it made me feel a bit sick!

Instead we decide to live the high life for a day (literally) and have tea at the 32nd floor of The Shard to enjoy the London views! The building has 90-something floors and my ears were popping a third of the way up. I think that's enough for me! Check this out for a latte, even the waitresses were uniformed in Ted Baker so we were expecting big things! This little trip was one of my highlights. If you ever find yourself in London, set time aside for afternoon tea in The Shard!

(Hold on while I sieve through 53475 photos of coffee...)

et voila!

Tower Bridge looks like something on a lego board that you could just pick up and place elsewhere...

And no trip to London is complete without a spree around Oxford Street! We spent the entire day shopping and as the day went on, my the bags got heavier and my purse got lighter. Just how I like it! 

(p.s. Behold, the sha-mazing ZARA)

Shopping in London Oxford Street

& oh my WORD could Accessorize get any cuter at the moment? The colours are stunning, the bags say 'Bonjour' on them and yes, those are pineapples on the flip flops. WHAT ELSE COULD YOU WANT? I have a gift card for Monsoon/Accessorize which could be spend in 2 seconds flat.

I think that will do me for today as I have a feeling this post is mega photo-heavy! I do have some more photos to share (HARRODS!) which will be featured in a later blog post, hurrayyy.
