London Calling

Back in December, I went on a trip to London to attend the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 launch, so I thought I’d just write a little post letting you know what I got up to in London, and I’ve even thrown in a list of my five favourite shops I went in.

We stayed in the Premier Inn, which is right in the centre of Leicester Square, and thelocation made it amazing. The room was pretty spacious, was decorated nicely and above all, clean. As soon as we got to the hotel, we dumped our bags, and did a quick run around Leicester Square, down Oxford street, Regent Street and then made our way back through Soho. Since we had to get ready for the event, we only had a few hours, but we made the most of it.

The event was held at One Mayfair, which was a stunning venue and there was a constant flow of free wine, beer and canapés all night long. We even met/saw some celebrities, including Stormzy, Krept and Konan, Big Narstie, Thomas Turgoose and Andrew Ellis (This is England) and so many more!

After the party, we had a wander round LDN and I just loved the business and the atmosphere at night. We then had a slightly drunken Burger King and hit the hay.

On Friday, we had to stay in the hotel to get our Stone Roses tickets, so we didn’t have much time left at all, so we did the fastest ever walking tour to see all the touristy stuff, like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, London Eye, Downing Street, etc, took a few pics, and then headed back into town for some shopping.

The shops in London are the best, I swear, even Topshop has like four floors and a WAH nail bar. We spent about an hour in Selfridges alone and we just literally shopped all day.

Shops to visit:

  1. M&M shop 

I love M&M’s so I loved this shop, you can buy pretty much anything filled with M&M’s,  buy M&M’s in every shade of every colour and you can even print your face on M&M’s. What a dream…

2. Selfridges

It’s huge and it has amazing displays. there was a cosmic space display when we went and it was just so good to look at, I could have spent the full day in here.

3. Liberty

Obviously you have to go to Liberty, it’s such a nice shop, it’s such an old building and it’s just so cute inside.

4. Supreme

Well it’s the only Supreme in the UK, so it’s worth a look.

5. Footpatrol

You know I love trainers and I swear I went to heaven when I stepped inside this shop, they sell the nicest trainers and they have a giant neon gas mask on the wall.

We ate Vapiano, which we’d never seen before, but then pretty much as soon as we got back one opened in Manchester, typical, but it was really nice anyway. It’s really cool inside, sort of minimalistic but sort of rustic at the same time, and you order your food with a card, they give you a buzzer which goes off when its ready, and then you just swipe the card to pay at the end. It’s a good idea if you’re eating with friends, because you cam have a card each so you can just pay for your own rather than having to awkwardly split the bill. The food was freshly made to order and absolutely delicious.

And that brought our day to an end, I was so sad when we had to leave… until I got to Euston station, oh my god, that place is mayhem and probably the only reason I couldn’t live in London.
