London Baby!

Hello ladies :-D

Today's second blog (I'm feeling a little guilty about being totally MIA recently :-/) is going to be about LONDON baby!
I was having a little clean out yesterday around the flat and found some tickets from when I went to London a few months ago to watch the Lion King! I can't believe I didn't mention it sooner but... erm, ok there is no reason I didn't mention it sooner lol.

So yeah, last month I went to London with my mum and my sister to watch the Lion King. It. Was. AMAZING! I always loved Lion King as a child and watching it again just made me feel so happy. The costumes were fantastic and the music, oh my word, if you ever go, watch out for the  person who plays the baboon, her voice is just, beyond words amazing. I would definitely recommend going to watch it, even just thinking about it makes me smile haha.

I could actually talk about it all day but I don't want to spoil it in case you're thinking of going so I'll stop right there with the Lion King :-D.

Other than visiting the West End to watch the Lion King, which is the main reason we went, we did all of the other touristy bits; we went on the London Eye, we visited Buckingham Palace, we saw Big Ben, we went on a boat ride down the Thames and we saw the changing of the guards. It was the first time I had ever been to London so I was very excited to see all the landmarks in person. The London Eye wasn't any where near as busy as I thought it would be... I don't know if that was just that day but, yeah, I was very grateful for it. Oh and we went on the tube! It was so surreal lol. There's probably people from London that use the tube every day reading this thinking, the tube? Really? Haha, well I enjoyed it.

And of course, we went shopping down Oxford Street. How could we not? It was so long! And there were so many shops! I was shocked. And the Topshop was the biggest I have ever seen in my life! Omg, I was in heaven, I think I'm going to move to Oxford Street when I'm older.
We had so much fun and took about a million pictures. I picked out the best ones to show you guys :-D

Hope you enjoyed,
Love ya
Emma ...x
