London Trip

Saturday 29 October 2011

So it's been an exciting couple of days as I went to London on Wednesday for a work trip and got back late last night. I had a great time, and we stayed in the most amazing hotel at Westminster Bridge. I could see Big Ben from from room! Here's some photos:
And I even had a separate living room!
Although I wasn't quite sure what to do in here, because even when I'm at home I prefer to lay on my bed to watch tv/internet/read etc.

I was lucky enough to have a few hours spare on Wednesday afternoon and we went to the London Aquarium, it wasn't anything amazing, i've been to Sea Life centres before. But I did love the penguins!
We then grabbed a quick bite to eat and went back to the hotel for a drink. I tried my first French Martini and I can see why everyone raves about them, they are delicious! 

Thursday and Friday were spent doing work, although on Friday lunchtime I managed to go to Covent Gardens and raid Lush and Boots.

To feed my nail polish addition, I ended up buying some...more than I imagined! Oops! But I did need more wintery/Christmas colours. 
Barry M : Coral, Barry M: Dusky Mauve, Rimmel: Black Cab, 17: Fury, 17: Forever, 17: Peacock
17: Ruby Gem, No7: Totally Teal, No7: Betty Blues

The lighting here is quite bad, but the 17 "red" polish is actually a lovely deep red wine colour. The best part was; 17 had an offer on, buy two 17 products and get this free:

I seen some other people talking about Umberto Giannini "Back comb in a can", so I got some to try it out...but it was on offer 2 for £7.50, so I picked up some "Glamour Puss Crystal Mist" to try it too.

Free gifts, special offers and £5 vouchers...I can never resist. It's one of the things I miss about the UK.

I found a Lush and had to pick up some "Snow Fairy" as I hear all the UK bloggers raving about it, and right enough it smells heavenly .I picked up some "Rock Star" soap and a bath bomb wand as well. All of them smell so fruity and fresh..almost good enough to eat!
