Those of you that follow me on Twitter will know that I went to London on Saturday to finally meet Adele, after months of planning an amazing day in the capital! I have really missed London since moving away in November so it was amazing to go back and honestly felt like I had never left!
First of all, I would like to publically apologise to Adele for the amount of walking we did… but it was a lovely day spent in the sun!
The day started off with an absolute nightmare as my alarm didn’t got off at 4.30am and I woke up an hour later with only ten minutes till my first train! After I quickly got ready (completely ignoring my hair and makeup) I legged it out the door in time for a 6.50am train to Birmingham.
Three and a half hours later I made it to Euston where I met up with Adele! After an emergency trip to the bathroom (which I had to pay 30p to use…) to apply my makeup we headed to Tottenham Court Road. Naturally, our first stop was Primark where we spent most of the time lusting over stuff we couldn’t afford till payday. I did buy myself a couple of treats though including an appletini mini candle, a hair bobble ball (why the hell not?) and a flowery headband.
After Primark we started walking down Oxford Street when I remebered about the Soho Hummingbird Bakery, we headed over to have a look at all of the amazing cupcakes. I had to resist a slice of their amazing rainbow cake as I hadn’t actually eaten anything yet and I wasn’t quite feeling like Penny from Girl Online and having Cake for breakfast…
We decided to get something to eat next as we were both absolutely starving and after months of trying to decide where to eat we ended up at Nandos, ha ha! When we sat down Adele told me she had got me a present and gave me the cutest little package ever - a Centreparcs postcard with a piece of rock from the sweetshop, so thoughtful :-)! Anyway, I was dying to try the new sweet potato wedges at Nandos and they did not let me down! With a little bit of peri peri sauce they are absolute perfection!
After eating I was dying to go to Forever 21 as I had seen a few things online that I really wanted. It was pretty dissapointing when we got there and I didn’t end up buying anything but I did fall in love with a gold birthday girl headband that I could not justify buying as it’s not my birthday until December. I am pretty sure I will end up buying it online come payday as to be honest, why wouldn’t I want to wear a tiara on my birthday?
Next we headed down to Regent St so we could go to Liberty. I had never actually been to Liberty before even though I lived in London for nearly four years (I am such a bad blogger!) but Adele wanted me to go and look at the flowers, which were so cute!
