Last weekend me and the fella went to London for his birthday, we stayed in Kings Cross in a Tune hotel, a room with no windows would you believe, it was only £35 a night. So we weren't expecting much but it was clean and modern and most importantly air conditioned, it was bloody hot whilst we were there! I would definitely recommend the hotel for those on a budget, who prefer to spend their pennies on macaroons!
This was my ensemble for the first day, I wore my Mexican skirt, men's vest and favourite straw hat!
Oh and Sid my 1930s celluloid seagull brooch
First place we went to was Ed's Diner a wonderfully kitsch 1950s diner right outside of Euston station, I had a chilli dog and a root beer float, as I was pretending I was in How to Marry a Millionare.
Most of my pennies were spent on food, we went to the Mexican restaurant Wahaca three nights in a row, it is brilliant in there, reasonable, bright and tasty. It got a bit embarrassing when the waitress recognised us, oh well we had to make the most of it.
Ladurée was a must, I just love how special you feel when they put those little morsels of joy in the beautiful box and bag.
My favourite place though was Byron, where I neglected to take photos of my divine spinach and tomato mayonnaise chicken burger with courgette fries.
The Victoria & Albert Museum is my favourite museum ever, I feel at peace in there, as sappy as that sounds. I just adore wandering around all the amazingly fascinating exhibitions, especially the fashion and sculptures. I want to go back in October for the Hollywood Costume exhibition.
Sorry if you follow me on instagram, you will have already seen these images, I neglect to use my actual camera!
