Blogger Fun

At the beginning of the week, Selina (Flying Saucer) and I hopped on to a train from Birmingham to London for the day. Rebecca from The Clothes Horse was in town and we were excited to spend the day catching up with such a familiar face. I remember talking to Selina a long time ago about how Rebecca was one of the bloggers who I'd love to meet and thinking it was unlikely, seeing as she lives on the other side of the pond. Then again, I did meet the lovely Wendy B last month, so anything can happen! It's awesome meeting bloggers in real life and as expected from a blogger meet up, we spent a few hours at the Hummingbird Bakery catching up over a cupcake or two.
Red Velvet
Red Velvet of course!
Kylie from Nice and Shiny also joined us, as well as Kristabel from I Want You To Know who has only been back in London for 2 weeks since she interned in New York for 6 months. We could have easily spent another few hours chatting away but it was time we moved on to the V&A. Outside, we stopped for a few photos, possibly the clearest outfit photo of mine to ever grace this blog. Thanks Kylie!

It was fun watching the girls get their photos taken!

We tentatively all crammed into a telephone box as us Brits were quite wary how er, not so nice these phone boxes can be! I've never posed inside one of these before.

I've mentioned the museum a few times on this blog and it's by far, my favourite in London.
V&A Foyer
One of my favourite rooms is the jewellery room which was refurbished not too long ago. Photography is forbidden but I managed to sneak a photo of one of my favourites, the Lalique orchid brooch.
Lalique Brooch
Nothing like a bit of Art Nouveau jewellery. I must write a post about Art Nouveau at some point, it's always been a passion of mine. We also went to the Fashion galleries and I love how with each visit, they seem to procure some more iconic pieces. This sixties dress was new and I wish it was mine!

We ventured out into the courtyard and took some silly blogger themed photos with Rebecca's fancy camera. Serious camera envy!

We finished the day off browsing in TopShop and ending up in a restaurant just off Carnaby Street. We tucked into yummy food and some 'posh fries' which were chips with sweet chilli sauce and guacamole, an awesome combination which I must try at home!
Posh Fries
The day ended far too soon for our liking and it wasn't long before Selina and I had to head back to the Midlands!

I'm so behind on this post but the girls covered it over on their blogs too, check out Rebecca, Kristabel, Kylie and Selina's posts!

  17. Looks like so much fun! I never get to do 'touristy' stuff much in London anymore as I work there - just want to jump on the train ASAP at the end of the day!

    I've never really met any other bloggers - it can be a lonely business - if ever you're in London again then hit me up, would be great to meet you properly!

    I've moved my blog over to my own hosted website now so it sits with my portfolio - feel free to resubscribe! http://www.rachelsayshello.com

    It's still a bit of a mess at the moment but it's getting there - one day at a time!

  38. Wow...........nice article. Lenhga choli is the Indian traditional dress. Recently choli patterns have changed a lot to keep up with the modern trends. Recently I purchased one lenhga choli from the site www.kaneesha.com. I am highly satisfied with the quality of it and I just loved the fine work done on it. On receiving great compliments I am sure to purchase more from this site. It's worth visiting this site.
