CTGT: My London trip + haul!

Monday, 10 August 2015


Yesterday, I went into London with my friend and we had an amazing time! This trip had been on the table for a long time so we both were saving our pennies up to go. Before we went shopping, we visited the National Portrait Gallery to see an Audrey Hepburn exhibition. As we both appreciate photography, this was really interesting and if you are looking to see an exhibition, I would definitely recommend seeing this. After that, we went to Covent Garden for a while and ended up in Jamie Oliver's for lunch which was delicious. Then, it was time to do some shopping; we took the tube to Oxford Street and spent most of our afternoon in and out of shops! 






My London haul! 


I love Topshop in London - it's so big and they have so many different items! Due to the fact that I had spent the vast majority of my money at this point, I could only afford the sale section. However, I found this top which I really liked in my budget so I decided to go for it. I have a party coming up and I am going to wear it to that. 


In the summer, I get so lazy with regular exercising. Although I have been on a few jogs, I know I should do more so I went into Niketown in search of some workout gear. My logic is that if I have nice sportswear, I will have more motivation to exercise - not very logical at all! But aside from that, I did actually need a new top for my regular badminton sessions. 


I only had one item that I definitely wanted to buy whilst I was there and it was these shorts from Brandy Melville. They are so comfy and I love the colour of them! When I'm back in London, I may be popping back in store to check out the different colours of these shorts! 


We went into Victoria Secret and there was a Pink downstairs so we headed  there. Initially, I couldn't find anything I liked but towards the end this caught my eye. It is in fact a nighty but I will probably be wearing it as a lounge item with leggings or something. I mainly liked it because of what it says on the front; I'm always that person wishing it was friday so I thought that I'd pick it up. The material is also really comfy and I can see myself wearing this a lot. 


This is my second Mac lipstick and it's in the shade 'Brave red'. The colour pay off is really good and I love the way it looks on my lips. I haven't got a proper red in my lips collection so this will be a good addition!


I had a lovely time in London and it was so special to go with a friend.
