London Town | Photo Diary

I was so lucky to be invited to London Fashion Weekend with George at Asda, I even took my mum along for the ride. It's been ages since we've had a trip away together, the last one we took was to Thailand, and it was my first away from Dexter. Lets just say I thought I might have a good night's sleep, I ended up having a worse night's sleep than I would if I was at home! 

We did have an amazing trip though, it was nice to go back to my mum's hometown, she's a cockney did you know? I was really happy to be able to pop into Chinatown whilst I was there, we did go for hotpot, but like we always say 'nothing beats Leeds hotpot!', and that's true, unless it's in China. We popped down Oxford Street too, and I had to visit Topshop obviously, unbeknownst to me that it opens early and has a cafe downstairs. 

Obviously I did the most damage to my bank account whilst in Selfridges. I bought more magazines and books than I could handle! And beauty, oh the beauty. I did buy quite a lot of high-end cosmetics there, and the Illamasqua counter did me out of my hard earned dollar. By the time we ended up walking down to Primark, at around 11am, I couldn't be bothered going in, it was absolutely packed. Looking at the window displays however didn't seem too different to the products they have in Leeds Trinity so I just gave it a miss. I did pop into Evans though just before we got the tube back to King's Cross on a whim, and I managed to pick up the gorgeous yellow print dress from the Cut collection! 

I was also really excited that they had some kind of imagination event on in Selfridges at the time, and they had some fantastic technology on show such as a 3D printer. In one corner there was so much relating to the hubby's work I just had to buy him loads of books on future architecture and robot buildings!
