The London Antics

You may have noticed things were a little quiet on the blog over the weekend, I won't even try and blag that I'm sorry for not posting at all, because I honestly had one of the best weekends ever! For my birthday my best friend was an absolute diamond and booked us a secret trip to the big smoke! You all know I love London almost as much as I love Brighton, so excited doesn't quite cover it. A weekend of spa treatments, shopping, seeing the lovely Anna AND getting to go on tubes is my idea of a good time! (Yes even the tubes and trains - I just love them!)

We stayed at the K-West, a beautiful, modern hotel just over a 5 minute walk from Westfields (Shepards Bush). Let's get the best bit in first - we had a pretty decent suit booked already, but on arrival we were upgraded and the K-Suit was just ah-mazing! Showers that spray from the side, a bed the size of 3 singles, come dine with me on the tv when we arrived and a giant bath tub - yes please!

After seeing Anna in the afternoon, shopping and sushi in the evening, spa treatments, and a lot of splashing around in the hot tub/swimming pool hybrid they had, we decided to retreat to our room and have a major pamper. This involved both testing the shower and bath tub - honestly I've never been so clean in my life! Once we were all pampered out we finally snuggled up in our giant bed, but sleep was short lived as I was too excited about our entire trip to waste too much time! Yeup, I was like a child at Christmas.

We both got up, had breakfast (Full English - there's nothing better) and scadoodled out of the hotel, blowing goodbye kisses as we went. Our afternoon was spent in the Oxford Street Topshop and Selfridges... and yes, a London haul is most definitely on the cards!

Now I'm home, and I miss London, but the good news is i'll be back tomorrow for work! I now have around 5 months to get my thinking cap on and pull something amazing out of the bag for Megans birthday - If you have any cute idea's I'd love to hear them!
