London Calling

As you can all probably guess by the title of this post, I am off to London in a couple of weeks. Now I know I’m not actually there yet, but I am extremely excited. It’s going to be my 18th birthday on the 11th December so I want to do something memorable, and seeing that I’ve only been sightseeing in London once, it seemed fitting. I also got a little bit philosophical and felt awful that I’d been abroad more times than I had seen the capital city of my home country. Shockingly unpatriotic!

I’ve decided that I want to shop all day and only stop to gorge myself with delicious food and champagne (I can’t go without alcohol on my eighteenth birthday can I?). I’ll be visiting all of the typical destinations; Harrods, Selfridges, Oxford Road, Piccadilly Circus, the list goes on…

My main aim will be to find a really nice bag. It’ll probably be hard work, seeing as I have been searching the internet for months and having absolutely no luck at all. However, I’m set on wandering around until I find one that I like because my mum has promised to buy me the perfect bag. Shame I can’t seem to decide what my perfect bag is!

So, if any of you wonderful people can recommend anywhere nice to shop, any good brands to look at, or any lovely places I can find a Champagne lunch or delicious dinner, let me know in the comments below please! I’ll love you for it.

Oh, and in other news, I haven’t been posting much in the last month because I’ve been super busy with college work. Apparently I’ve actually got a chance of getting into medicine so my teachers have been working really hard to give me mock interviews for university and also tried to help me perfect my applications. After about four weeks of sitting and waiting to hear back, I finally heard from one of the universities and I now have an interview in January! Exciting times. And I also lost 6lb!

Sun, Sea, Sand

Holiday 431That’s right people – I am off to the wonderful island of Crete on my autumn holidays. There’s going to be lots of sun, lots of relaxing, and best of all, LOTS OF EATING GREEK FOOD. Yes, I am a self-admitted foodie who would choose, above anything else, to eat all day. I love all kinds of food and will try absolutely everything. So what I’m really trying to say is – expect many posts about food, the weather, and my personal style. There will be many.

On the topic of holidays, it’s been at least two years since I left the UK – far, far too long. The last time I went away was to Cyprus (don’t worry, I don’t always go to Greece, but I love love love it there). Anyway, my holidays don’t just consist of sitting on the beach all day getting a tan. I like to get out and about to see what secrets the island really holds. Visiting traditional markets, with row upon row of hand-crafted glass beads; travelling to remote mountain villages to feast on the most delicious food in the whole world; wandering around long-forgotten settlements from thousands of years ago. These are the things I love.

I probably won’t get the chance to post again before I touch down in Crete – three controlled assessments at college and packing the suitcase can tie a girl down – but I shall be posting away once I get there. Γειά σας (that’s goodbye in Greek).
