let me begin this post by wishing you all a very happy new year! I know it’s already the 3rd of January and I really wanted to share a blog post earlier but you now.. life gets in the way sometimes! So, I just got back from London yesterday and then today I met up with some old high school friends just to catch up, which was really nice as I hadn’t seen them in a few months.
But now back to my London trip. It was my 4th time in London and it was pretty damn awesome. I think I just have a bit of a thing for London. It’s such an amazing place. Just like last year my best friend and I stayed there for around 5 days over New Years.
Since we both have been there several times now we skipped the typical tourist stuff and just did a lot of shopping, visited some museums, the zoo and took the subway (or tube as the English they) to explore some of the more exotic parts of London, that aren’t overly crowded by tourists.
Last year we spent NYE strolling through Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park before going to watch the fireworks down by the Thames. However, this year they closed up the area around London Eye and you had to get tickets in order to watch the fireworks. But since getting back to our hotel took us around 6 hours last year because they had closed down a lot of the big underground stations, so we got stuck for around 2 hours in front of Waterloo station, I really had no desire to go through that again. I was nearly in tears last time. So, this year we spend NYE in a bar and club in one right at Leicester Square and it was a lot less stressful and much more enjoyable.
We stayed in a hotel in the Wembley area, so to get back we just had to make our way to Piccadilly Circus and take the Bakerloo line to Wembley Central and after a 7min walk we reached our hotel. I swear, last year in comparison was an absolute nightmare. After getting stuck at Waterloo for hours we had to take own overcrowded subway after the other just to miss our train. With a ton of luck we finally managed to catch a bus out of central London at 5.30.
This time we left the club at around 1 am and were back in our hotel room at around 2,30. I wish we could’ve stayed out longer but it was my first night out partying since I got out of the hospital and since I still have to take strong medication, which makes me incredibly tired I just couldn’t go any longer. But we still had an amazing time!
Obviously I did a lot of shopping as well! I can’t even count the times I went into Boots to buy some more make up. I basically spent most of my money on make up but I have no regrets! Hopefully I manage to get a little haul post up soon. I mainly bought drugstore make up apart from some Tom Ford make up but more about that in my next post.
As much fun as I had I’m glad to be back home now as the last days have been absolutely exhausting. I’m still not allowed to practice any type of sport for a while but we basically spend all day walking around in London with hardly any breaks. Usually that wouldn’t have been a problem for me but since I haven’t been very active physically because I just wasn’t allowed to it was absolutely exhausting for me and I’m now glad to be able to sleep in my own bed again and get some rest! Plus I missed blogging and I’m excited to continuing working on my blog in 2015!
Once again I hope you guys had an amazing NYE and I hope you enjoyed reading this post despite it differing a bit from my usual posts because it’s more of a life update one.
Somehow I didn’t take a lot of pictures while in London (maybe because I already have so many) so I thought I’d just my 3 favorites with you guys!
Lots of love,
