As I mentioned in my previous post Ali & I went to London this weekend. Although we were primarily there to see The Lion King at the theatre we did managed to squeeze in just a bit of shopping & sight seeing. Although I have been to London a fair few times in my life there is always something or somewhere new to see.
Saturday we stayed around Oxford Road and SoHo and did a fair amount of shopping. Sunday we went for breakfast in Spitalfields and a quick browse around the market. Lots of lovely places to take nice photos!
Kingdom of sweets on Oxford Road. Finally found Tatty Devine after a good search. M&M world in Leicester Square. China town decorated for Chinese New Year. Hummingbird Bakery. Yummy looking food in Spitalfields. Proud goat statue. Yummy cake in Patisserie Valerie. Flowers in Spitalfield.
Although I tried to be quite controlled with my money I did manage to pick up a few *cough cough* nice bits and pieces.
Sweeties from the American sweet shops on Oxford Road. Swedish Fish are my favourite sweets of all time, and even though they were fairly expensive (£1.99 a packet.. eep) I couldn't resist. Watermelon Jelly Belly Lollibean - they are shaped like a bean!
After finally finding Tatty Devine in the tiny side streets of SoHo it seemed rude not to buy something! I have had my eye on this little anchor necklace for ages. I had also been sent a voucher for 20% off after my last Tatty Devine necklace chain turned up broken which the let me use in store, so it only came to £9.60. I love nautical themed jewellery!
It's well known that I love Cath Kidston, and I couldn't resist this cute little tote bag in the sale! I also picked up a little hand mirror with Buckingham palace on for £2.
After going to M&M's world in New York we decided to pop to the London one to check it out. Although we were unimpressed with the selection of M&M's (In New York they have pretzel, peanut butter & coconut M&M's as well as chocolate and peanut) I did pick up a small bag of Union Jack mix.
Lion King fridge magnet from the Theatre. It was a really good show, the costumes and the set are just amazing!
More jewellery because I cannot help myself! I picked this up in Spitalfields market. It's a forget me not set in glass on a 925 silver setting. The lady was super lovely and threw in the chain for free. I love one of a kind pieces and it was only £14!
Kyle & I have a tradition, when ever either of us go away we always bring the other one back some funny tat from where ever we have been. This time it was a London bus keyring.
Lots of lovely treats for me! You ladies have any funny traditions?
