Monday 2 December 2013


Saturday was such a fab day. Weeks and weeks ago, Holly and I stumbled across the secret santa meet up being held by Clare and Emma, and decided to pop along! We took the coach up, and enjoyed some delicious cake en route - perfect. And Percy Piglets. Those things are amazing!

Next stop, Carnaby Street. I love & Other Stories. It's just such a pretty shop, and I'd love to buy everything they stock. Alas, that didn't happen. But we did take a few arty photos and a cute little mirror selfie. Obviously, we had to pop to the Mac store. Paint pots - why you so pretty?!

Next on the agenda was a festive Starbucks. I introduced Holly to the infamous salted caramel hot chocolate. Still as delicious as the last one! Oh, and my first actual red cup of the season - wooo!

A quick (well, I say quick...) tour around Boots, a few purchases later we were ready for the meet up. Wait, nope, there was a Superdrug at the station, so we also had to have a quick browse.

Tiger Tiger was our next port of call. And I've only just realised I didn't take any photos while we were there, sorry! But it was lovely to meet lots more bloggers and get into the Christmas spirit. We swapped our gifts and the girls had lovingly put together a little goodie bag for each of us.

Holly, Tamsyn, Anastasia and I were starving, so off to Nandos we went. I had the usual: mango and lime chicken burger with peri peri salted chips, and oh my, it was delicious as always! It was only as we left Nandos that we realised what time it was, and we all parted our separate ways. 

On our way back to Victoria coach station, we popped into the little Lush store for yet another quick browse. And, guess what that means - another bubble bar crossed off the to-buy list!

Well, London, same time next week? Yep, next weekend is going to be amazing! If you follow me on twitter (@beccasfandl) you may know what I'm up to... If not you'll have to wait and see!
