London Hauling

On Good Friday, I got on a rather early train to London to finally meet the lovely Sarah, and Rachel. We shopped a lot, indulged in (my first ever!) Wagamama's, drink coffee, nursed hangovers (in the case of Rachel!) and generally had a good ol' girly gossip. We also established ourselves as the world's worst bloggers, as we did not take a single photo all day! Nope we didn't even Instagram our lunch! But I was able to pick up some fab clothes from stores I would never normally get to visit
 



First stop was Uniqulo, where me and Rachel decided to jump right on the blogger bandwagon, and indulge in some print-heaven in the form of the new Celia Birtwell range. Never having shopped in Uniqulo, I was surprised at how cheap it was! I picked up the star print shirt, the swallow print tee, and the navy culottes. I had great fun trying these on, as at first I though they were a skirt, so of course, trying to get both legs into the same hole, disaster obviously ensued! I never thought I would be buying culottes in my 20s, but they are a great idea for work in the summer as they avoid any chances of indecency whilst at work.
 
I was fascinated by the concept of the scarf-come-poncho, and I now think it is absolute genius! This will be great for (hopefully!) hot summer barbeque's once the temperature starts to drop.
 

Next stop was blogger favourite Monki. I can't believe I'm still buying knits in late March/early April, but the grey and cream jumper is quite thin, so will see me through the cooler summer days as well. The black skirt was a bargain at £25, as it's really thick fabric, fully lined, full circle skirt. That's alot of skirt for your money!

I also got matched up at Bobbi Brown in Liberty's for my perfect foundation. Foundation is a product (like most make up really!) that eludes me, and I never got the right colour, but after spending alot of time running backwards and forwards from the window, I think I've finally found the right shade for me! I also picked u the fixing powder, but I will review these in a separate future post.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I bought in London, I hope to do an outfit post soon too!
