Evening all, how's your Saturday going?

This is my second diary post entry about my days off. This is what i got upto in London on Friday :)


So on Friday i had another day off with the bf and we decided to go to London. We set off late morning and headed to Leicester Square for a spot of lunch. We went to our favourite place - Chiquito's; a yummy Mexican.

To kick-start the day and because i was feeling very Carrie in Sex and the City i decided to have a Cosmopolitan cocktail...

For my starter i had potato wedges topped with chilli, cheese and sour cream and for main i had a delicious spicy chicken and rice wrap with fries - i was such a ravenous beast that by the time i thought about taking a photo i had already devoured half of the meal, oops!

After our delicious lunch me and the bf parted ways; he went off to play in a poker tournament with his friends and i hit Oxford Street for a mammoth shopping sesh!

My first stop was Topshop as i was lusting after these fab jeans and was desperate to try them on. Unfortunately me and Topshop do not get on very well and i had a horrid shopping experience. It was mega hot and busy (this was expected), i eventually found the jeans and went to try them on. Upon entering the fitting rooms a foul smell hit me, i figured it was smelly feet and bodies mixed together but when i eventually found a free fitting room the reason for the smell appeared - someone had wee'd in the changing room! Can you even believe this!? (sorry if you didnt want to know this but i had to share my disgust!) Ewww! The disastrous shopping trip did not stop there, the jeans made me look short and stumpy :( and then the sales assistants completely ignored anyone trying to leave the fitting rooms so i literally dumped the jeans and tag and ran for my life out of there!

I then headed to Primark knowing that i was guaranteed to get my shopping fix in there. I picked up a couple of dresses, 2 jumpers, a bikini, a cute feather necklace, tan fringed coin purse and these gorgeous shoes...

Cant wait to wear these during the summer months. Got a lovely petrol blue maxi dress that would look just divine with these :)

I also picked up some goodies in Boots & Superdrug - Soap & Glory's Wish Upon A Jar, 2 eyeshadows, a moisturiser, a lipstick, 3 nail polishes and a blush (reviews and pics coming soon)

I also spent some time at Trafalgar Square just sitting by the fountain and watching the world go by :)

I love London so much but have come to realise that i really love shopping in my local town as its much less busy and i can shop in peace (i have a routine where i get up early on a Sunday and do all my shopping before most people wake up - therefore grabbing all the bargains before everyone else!)

This is what i wore:

Navy and white patterned playsuit
Black long-sleeved cardi
Sheepskin gilet
Tan studded pixie boots
Tan plaited waist belt
A collection of necklaces and bangles

Me and the bf got a bit snap happy while waiting for our food to arrive:

Where are your favourite places to shop & eat? I'm a total foodie and love to eat out!
