Babes, I'm back safe and sound after a whirlwind trip to the city of denim bootyshorts, dip dyed hair and the Gherkin: YES I'm talking about London!!! I have never been on a city trip like that before, so you can imagine how excited (and stressed out) I was. I just want to start out with a HUGE, big thank you to the awesome people who made it all possible: Eurostar, Elien and my other travelbuddies Sabina, Paulien and Afrodite. Also, credits for some of the following pictures go to my girls: thank you²! Now, sit tight for a buttload of pictures. I just can't wait to share :)
fashion, girltime and complementary lunch on the Eurostar! Pannacotta and chicken with sundried tomatoes and some cheesecake: nom.
Me and my girls, just after arriving in London. LOOK AT THOSE ENTHOUSIASTIC FACES
Some crappy shots of our awesome hostel, Palmer's Lodge (Swiss Cottage). A total recommendation: VERY affordable, beautiful building, friendly people, adorable bunk beds and great location (near the underground and very central).
Trawling around the city, we spent most of our first day at our no. 1 destination: PRIMARK YES OMG YES. Btw, if anyone here knows if the red dress with the flower/bird print in the first pic or the red/blue dress in the second pic is available in a size 10 or 12 in their local Primark: PLEASE email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll PAY you to ship that shit over to me. Not kidding.
At night, we went over to a Strada in Spitalfields and met up with my bestie Camille who studies in London (missed her so much!) and Kirstin and Raquel! I loved meeting you guys, you were delightful company and I wouldn't have wanted to share this next awesome experience with anyone else but you ;-)
OMG THE GHERKIN I CAN DIE HAPPY NOW
Elien bought a nurse's uniform slash pajamas at Primark and mimed giving me a sponge bath. We do shit like that. Also, check out all that shit on the floor. We bought SO much stuff. Primark <3 4-eva! I bought a bajillion collars.
Next day, after checking out, we hopped on the tube for shopping: round 2 and a bit of LDN fashion week! On the menu: Topshop, fish & chips and spotting Susie Bubble at Somerset House. Obviously, since I'm a fashion blogger and all (/irony) I only have a picture of the fish & chips we had at Garfunkel's. But they were REALLY GOOD YO
Check out the other girls' blogs during the next few days for their pictures and stories, I'll be uploading an extensive report of my buys and outfits over the next few days. Thanks again to Eurostar and Elien for my amazing weekend! <3
I'm also secretly super happy to be home with my boyfriend again. I'm a total loser, I know. Jetsetting would not be my thing.
PS: did you know that everyone in London looks like a blogger? Yep, all those stylish girls you know that have a blog and act all unique and original just look like 90% of all Londoners. SO lame.
