12 hours in London (2018 edition!)

Hello My Lovelies

A couple of weekends ago my boyfriend and I decided to go to London to celebrate our first year together. Read on to see what we got up to in our whirlwind visit to the Capital.

It was a cold and grey day in London when we visited but we still took full advantage of visiting the sites and started our day by walking over Westminster Bridge from Big Ben which is currently having some renovations and towards the London Eye. Once along the South Bank we stopped to eat our Doughnut Time doughnuts that we had picked up at Victoria. I'm not lying when I say they were the most delicious, huge doughnuts we had ever had- I couldn't even eat mine in one go and had to save it for the coach journey home.


After taking in all of the street entertainers and doing a spot of people watching we jumped on the tube and I took Ollie to my favourite gallery in London the Saatchi Gallery which is free to visit. It's a gallery full of modern art, not to everyone's taste that's for sure but I do love popping in when ever I'm in London to see what kind of crazy stuff they have exhibited!


After spending an hour or so at the Saatchi Gallery it was time to jump back on the tube and head over to Dalloway Terrace for dinner. We ate burgers and chips and drank red wine and obviously got a photo with 'that' flower wall! I'm so glad I've had the chance to dine here as its been on my list for a while- next time though I would love to try out Bob Bob Ricard!

 

Before too long it was time to had back to the coach and travel back to the Isle. Have you been to London recently? What have been your favourite things to do whilst there? Let me know in the comments or on Instagram @wonderfulworldblog.

Till next time,

What I got for my Birthday 2018!

Hello My Lovelies

A couple of weeks ago it was my 35th Birthday and like every other year I was utterly spoilt by friends and family and this year my boyfriend too. Scroll on down to see what lovely things I was gifted!


My sister treated me to this cute Cath Kidston sausage dog notebook as she knows I would love to own one one day. My mum and dad treated me to my Chanel card holder at Christmas which was a combined present for my Birthday but then they very kindly also bought me a M&S jumper and took me out for dinner at the most gorgeous restaurant in my area.

My boyfriend's mum and step dad bought me a Topshop voucher which I've already spent some on a belt (keep an eye out for that on here in a upcoming post!). My boyfriend bought me a ticket to a festival for in the summer, some Ray-Bans which were an utter surprise and a YSL lip balm which I literally haven't stopped using since I received it. He also bought me the Ministry of Sound, I love acoustic album which is amazingly chilled!
My dear friend Manx sent me the cutest gift in the post a 'bear hug' filled with gorgeous gifts including a mug, biscuits and Tea Pigs tea bags! I also received a jacket, mug and scarf from another friend which will also be featuring here on the blog in an upcoming post! My work gang decorated my desk and gifted me some flowers which was lovely to come into work on my last day before a long weekend.

I had the best birthday and I'm thoroughly grateful for all of the gifts, cards and love I received on the day.

Till next time,

Empties 23!

Hello My Lovelies

I'm back to show you what I've recently used from my stash and let you know if I'll be buying it again or if I may already have!

Need I say anything about my holy grail dry shampoo Co-Lab? If you're a regular reader of my blog you will know I love this brand and I haven't found another one that I like as much. The galactic from Co-Lab isn't my favourite scent as it's quite masculine but it does the same as all the others and you can't ask for much more than that.

I've been lucky enough the past few years to have been abroad and been able to visit a Sephora and each time I visit I always pick up a face mask. They are reasonably priced, soft and perfect for making my skin feel fresh and new. This year I'll be able to stop by two Sephora's on my holidays to stock up on all the products I love!

Bath and Body Works foaming hand washes are amazing and I wish there was a way I could get it here in the U.K for the same price you can in the States. Winter White Woods smelt like Christmas tree woods and a perfect gift from my parents in my stocking.

Finally I picked up the new L'Oréal restoring shampoo, I'm a sucker for new products and this one was no different. It made my hair feel soft and detangled my curly hair which is a great bonus. I'll definitely pick up some of this if I see it on offer.
