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!

Rain rain go away…

As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I don’t like rain. I’m not sure that anyone does… unless they can stay indoors, wrapped up, without the threat of being sent outside. But that doesn’t happen much. No. Whenever it rains, my fate seems to have me needing to go out into it and get absolutely soaked. Typical! So what do I do when it rains?

Shop!!!!!!

I have literally been sitting here for the last few weeks, doing UCAS applications whilst ordering some kind of clothing from one shop or another. I’ve also been really ill over the last couple of days so I’ve been on the sofa, scrolling through the iPad apps and once again ordering clothes. The thing is, when I order things, unless it’s free delivery, I tend to have it delivered to the shop (because who wants to pay £4 every time you order something?!). And of course, that means I have to go outside…

… into the rain.

So now, I’m about to head outside to pick up some Next clothes and it’s absolutely tipping it down. All in the love of clothes… Wish me luck! And let me know in the comments below what you guys will be ordering this Autumn? Jumpers, hats, scarves, or maybe even bikinis for a Christmas getaway?!
