Despite actually being born in Essex, I have never returned to the South since moving when I was just 2 years old. This has meant that after years and year of listening to my parent’s stories about London and all that it has to offer, I’ve always wanted to go. Last month, I was incredibly lucky to find out that I have been nominated as ‘Best Fashion Blog’ in the Plus Size Awards and thanks to absolutely incredibly sponsors (Sophisticated Curves and The Curve) I am able to attend the awards ceremony in London! You can only imagine my excitement that finally I would be ticking off something on my unwritten ‘bucket list’. Now that I finally have the chance to go to London, I have to make the most of it otherwise I’d never forgive myself. Seen as I actually turn 20 the weekend after, my parent’s have absolutely spoilt me by booking for my Mum and I to go see Phantom of the Opera! Ever since I haven’t stopped singing the songs, or reciting the film. London is a massive city though, and of course, I have plenty more things on my unwritten bucket list.
(Do feel free to vote for me too!)
The thing I want to do is to visit an exhibition. I don’t know what it is about London that makes me think of exhibitions, maybe it’s because they’re always in the films? Whatever it is, it means that if I get the chance, I’ll definitely be heading off to one. After looking around, I’ve found The Horst Style Exhibition and the Wedding Dress 1775-2014 Exhibition that look incredible. Both of which have the most incredible online shops where you can purchase souvenirs from the exhibition. However, they’re not the typical pen and pencil that you get in the Sheffield Museums. You can buy The Wedding Dress: 300 years of Bridal Fashions which looks absolutely incredible and something that every woman would probably want. After all, it is a weekend surrounding fashion! Obviously, other than the Theatre, Awards Ceremony and an Exhibition, it’ll be only right to visit all the famous streets and shops. Just like any good beauty blogger, I will, of course, be heading into the department stores. I did think there was a Sephora, but apparently not?
Have you been to London before? What would you suggest I do?
