I mentioned in my last post that I was on vacation with my mom in London...well, I'm back now, and I'm sad to say that I really wish I was still there! It was my first time ever in the city and from the minute I stepped off the plane I fell in love with it. It's such a gorgeous place, and I'm so jealous of all of you that get to live there! Not that I don't love Hong Kong, but it's a different experience, for sure.
Usually when I travel I like to do a few recap posts of my days for you guys, but for the most part we were just shopping and eating, and I didn't want to post anything too repetitive which is why I just wanted to share a collection of photos from my trip with you guys now. Be prepared for lots of food and plenty of tourist cheesin'.
Breakfast on our first morning: eggs benedict at Harrods!
After that breakfast we had a little mosey around the bakery section - look at how much bread they have for sale! It's amazing. We definitely picked up a few bits and they were really yummy.
A snap I took at Bray, a small village about an hour outside of London. This is where The Fat Duck - which I wrote about earlier and which you can see here - is located!
Gourmet burger lunch at Bar Boulud, right next to the Mandarin Oriental on Knightsbridge.
Lobster noodles at Mandarin Kitchen! We spoke Cantonese to the staff there and it was so strange, hearing that much Cantonese in a foreign country. The portion here was really really generous, and completely indulgent and delicious.
What's a trip to London without some sightseeing? I didn't get pictures of everything that we saw, but here is the Tower Bridge.
Westminster Abbey, of course!
It doesn't get any more London than this, either. The London Eye, Big Ben, and a red bus all in one photo!
Some gorgeous photos from dinner at The Ledbury, which is ranked 13th in the world, supposedly! One of London's four three Michelin star restaurants, and definitely one of the best I'd eaten at. Unfortunately I don't have a whole post up for you guys because I wasn't feeling really well at the dinner, so I didn't get photos of everything we ate. :(
But here's an OOTD with my cousin, because I never forgot about you! The dress is from Vivienne Tam, the bag is from Chanel, and the shoes are from Staccato. (Sorry for the quality, this was taken on my phone in a dimly lit room!)
Well, that's all for now folks! Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my London trip. I have a lot more London-related posts coming up though...that's right, I picked up a ton of new makeup (mostly from the drugstore) in London and I'm so excited to try everything and share my thoughts on them with you all! Keep an eye out for those, but in the meantime have yourselves a lovely day, friends.
