A fabulous weekend in London

September 15, 2013

I have to say that I’m still feeling the effects of attending the Blogcademy event in London last weekend. I have TONS of new ideas and I think I would need 3 more blogs (a a lot more free time too) to be able to put them all online! Hmmmm…..

Anyway, I haven’t shown the photos I took that weekend of London and of what I wore, as I know most of my readers like to see them outfits! So here are the sights and some of my clobber.

I arrived in London on Friday night and stayed at the Umi hotel in Bayswater. I had booked a single room for the night as I figured that would suffice to rest my bones after the trip down and after the blogging sessions. The hotel wasn’t fancy but it had all the basics I needed and was comfortable enough. I even got to watch a bit of telly before falling asleep!

I didn’t take a lot of photos in town that day as I managed to arrive late and was in a rush to get to the venue.

I nicked this photo from Nicole from A Life Less Beige, as I don’t have any of me on that day! With me on the photo are Tina of I Love Lotta and Sara from Under the Vintage Veil. I was wearing a Primark cardigan, Topshop wire and rhinestones cat ears, the skirt I bought from TK Maxx, for a song. I love it because it has a somewhat vintage feel to it, although it isn’t – the pattern has some sort of tropical landscape. The t-shirt I was wearing is from Pull and Bear and it’s got a maneki neko on it.

The next day I left the hotel and dragged my suitcase through the Underground system. I had by then learned a better way to get to the studio where we had the class. That taught me that you can’t always trust Google Maps directions!!!

As always, you can find some cool street art, particularly in Shoreditch where I spent the last weekend!


Of course, I had to use these as a backdrop for an outfit photo! The building looked super cool and I wish I had more places like this around where I live.

What I wore on Sunday: Ears – Crown and Glory, Necklace – Head Full of Feathers (both from the Blogcademy goody bag), Jacket – H&M, Dress – Monki, Bag – Ahacahcum Muchacha, Glitter trainers – Springfield.

The Gerkin, in the magical hour. The photo can’t convey the beauty of the colours of that moment.

I also thought I’d share some Robert Indiana love with you.Hope you enjoyed it! I’m sharing this post with the ladies at Ariane’s Blog Hop.
