One of my favourite weekends from 2011...

Hi Guys!

Seeing as its nearing the end of the year I thought I'd write a post about my favourite weekend from 2011! My friend Jess (a.k.a Mi Novia) and I went to London for Jess's 18th birthday and I can honestly say that I have never laughed as much in one weekend! It was the weekend of the Royal Wedding so the atmosphere around London was great all weekend (even though it was extremely busy!) and unfortunately we weren't there for the actual wedding because we went down the day after! Just thought I'd say if you're thinking my hair looks a weird colour - well it is! I was going through the transition from purple to blonde!

Day 1
So the day we got there we only had enough time to go for a quick look around the HUGE Topshop on Oxford Street and have some tea before we got ready for the night! We managed to get fake tan and some kind of fruit-fizz alcohol all over the hotel room whilst we were getting ready (oops!). That night we went to the Picadilly Institute which was completely packed! So we weren't out too late but it was still a great night anyway!

Day 2
On the second day we woke up feeling a tad delicate! But we still got up fairly early and went shopping! We had a look around Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Topshop (again!), H&M and you get the drift! We wanted to look around the posh shops on bond street but most of them were closed as it was bank holiday Sunday! Then, after a LONG day of shopping, it was time to get ready for a night out again! We went to Hard Rock Cafe for dinner and had a couple of cheeky cocktails before we were seated! After Hard Rock Cafe we went back to Picadilly Circus and ended up in Tiger Tiger of all places and had a really really good night! We took a LOT of pictures on this night so I've only put a select few on here!

Day 3
The last day! As we had to catch the train in the afternoon we thought we'd squeeze a little bit of sightseeing in before we left! So first of all we went to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. We wanted to actually go into Westminster Abbey because all the wedding decorations and everything were still there but the queue was about 6 hours long so we didn't have time which I was a bit disappointed about! But we got some photos outside anyway! Then we went to Buckingham Palace to take a few snaps too! Because we didn't get to go in Westmister Abbey we had a bit of spare time so we went back to Selfridges and I bought myself some gold Ray Ban Aviators which I absolutely LOVE!
