So today (ok, technically yesterday now), Dad and I took a trip down to London to visit one of our Au-Pair's and her family that came over from Spain for the weekend. Whilst Dad took the guys to Silverstone Racecourse to take part in an experience day, we (the girls) went shopping and kinda sightseeing. My plan was to actually do one of those picture every hour things, but that never happened so here's what was started of it haha!
We decided to go visit Buckingham Palace for a while before making our way over to Oxford Street to do some shopping. I have hardly ever been to London before apart from school trips, and I actually did quite well getting around on the underground myself (or so I like to think) till we couldn't find our way out of the underground haha! We were going from one train line to the next, and it was roasting down there! After we finally managed to find our way out we had a little picnic at Green Park before making our way down to the palace.
Just as we were heading to oxford street, one of the Queen's Guards walked by and I just managed to get a shot of the back of him haha! It's better than nothing though right? I actually didn't know that the London Eye was so close to Buckingham Palace but you could see it from the gates.
The weather was amazingly nice for an autumn day. It must have been around 17/18C in London and it was so sunny. I think the weather's supposed to be quite nice for the rest of the week (here's hoping). Oh, my Minnetonka moccasin's arrived on Wednesday!!! I hadn't had the chance to wear them properly till today and oh, my, gosh - they are the most softest, comfiest shoes ever! I usually have to wear shoes in for around 1 or 2 months before they get to a bearable level of comfort so I really risked it wearing these today and I actually managed to walk around London all day in them. I would definately recommend anyone to buy them - I think I'm going to be living in them for the next couple months haha!
I can't actually believe how much I spent on clothes today. I can't believe I used to hate H&M but I'm completely in love with it now (if only they did student discount too). I decided to show a sneak preview of some of my new clothes!
