The Sunday Post: A Day in London

Anyone who knows me knows I'll run off to London any chance I get. These chances don't crop up as often as I'd like but when they do, oh boy do we have fun! My little sister has been on half term this week so we headed down on Monday and jumped straight on the tube towards Somerset House. I had to shoot a film of street style for a university project and my sister was taking the same photos on her DSLR. I was going to put these all in the same post but I think I'm going to do a separate post for my favourite street style that we photographed that day.

After that we headed up to Oxford Street paying a visit to the usual, Topshop, H&M, Primark. I decided H&M Oxford Circus is what I'm aiming towards. It's such a gorgeous store now that it's all finished and the decor in store is perfect. Definitely my favourite, and that's where I want to be a visual merchandiser.

I also took my sister for a little stroll down Carnaby Street. She liked it. I knew she would. It's so quant and pretty just tucked away off the main bustle. We stumbled upon Liberty which we failed to find on our last visit and couldn't resist a peek inside, let's just say we felt right out of place, everything was so beautiful - and pricey! But we did bump into Helen George from Call the Midwife. I was a bit unsure whether to approach since she was out shopping, but alas, I did. She was so lovely and thanked me for watching the show (I'm a new fan this season) and believe me she is stunning!

Our last stop was Five Guys, which after a trip to Covent Garden then to Angel we finally got to taste their wondrous burgers. Oh sweet Mary they were good! And the novelty of the drinks machine with it's 100+ options will take a while to wear off. I'm back for the weekend with Dan so I'll definitely be treating him to one.

Hope you've all had a lovely week!
