remember last week’s post, where i was all like ‘oh hooray, spring’s come to london!’? well, i take it back. it was actually snowing when we got into the city yesterday afternoon. snowing! and it’s nearly march! i didn’t mind too much though, because you can’t help but love this city, even when it’s grey and dreary and even your boyfriend’s long johns can’t keep you warm.
we (mum, francesca and i) met my cousin emily at waterloo for an afternoon of shopping the boutique stands at somerset house. now, i’ve heard good things about shopping at london fashion weekend in the past so i’m not sure if this one was just a dud, but it was…not so great. after sticking it out for an hour or so (i played an enjoyable game called ‘spot the blogger’!) we decided to escape up to covent garden. you know, as much as i flirt with the king’s road and notting hill areas of london, covent garden really does have my heart.
we talked about emily’s wedding (so exciting!) drank raspberry mojitos (i drank one, and it made me embarrassingly woozy!) and ate what i’m calling the best burger ever. i’d quite like to have byron’s blue cheese sauce on tap, please.
special oscar speech-style mentions for the kind lady in lush, who chopped up three different shampoo bars for me so i could take them home to sample, and to mum for treating us all day long. thank you!
