Stone to stone they take me on, I'm walking 'til the break of dawn

Reiss outside the V+A

I absolutely love London, probably because it makes such a refreshing change from the endless fields I am surrounded by back home! This weekend I went down to see my boyfriend Reiss who lives just outside of London. We met up in the city centre and had an amazing day exploring Harrods, enjoying a cuppa in the Knightsbridge Starbucks, wandering around the fabulous V + A museum topped off by some retail therapy in Oxford Street in the afternoon not to mention being treated to lots of yummy food!

Despite the odd shower of rain here and there and a lot of walking we had a lovely day and both bought a pair of 'Toms' shoes ready for the summer. I bought the navy blue pair that have stripes down the sides whilst Reiss just went for plain navy blue (after trying on every style and size in the shop!). I decided to leave them at Reiss' house for now as it's doubtful the weather is going to improve in the next week I am home! I also bought a Kohl eyeliner in black from the Topshop make-up range as I had read such good reviews. Where are everyone's favourite places in London?

The Oxford Street Topshop was very very busy as always, I found a nice pair of coral trousers in the sale but the queue to try them on was ridiculously long so I ended up leaving them. I also saw a beautiful dress by another brand that they stock but now I can't find it on the internet- typical!!

I've had a little look at the Topshop sale online- far less stressful than scouring through the rails and these are my top picks! Have any of you found any bargains in the mid-season sales?

Also I am very excited to have reached 50 followers!! Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, I love writing it but I also enjoy just as much reading everyone elses! My second year uni exams are getting closer and closer so my posting may become a little less frequent but I do have some great posts lined up so do keep reading! xxx

  1. I get so stressed in the flagship Toppers, soo many people. When I went up last we opted for Westfield stratford shopping centre, which was lovely. Love the Camden locks too! Keep trying to edge my boyfriend into getting some Toms, I think they'd really suit him. They look so comfy too! Good luck with exams! Sam xx

  6. I'm with you 100%! London is so amazing, I did a post before raving on about how much I loved it an it's one of my favourite places ever. I love going to all the markets and the embankment and the museums and all the touristy places like that, but I also really love going out of central London and walking down the normal roads and finding little pubs and book stores and stuff. London is amazing and I'm glad you had a lovely time :)
    I've never been to the V and A museum, sounds like it was good though, will have to pop in next time I'm in London!
    Love your toms and a massive congrats on getting 50 followers :D xxx
