London Adventure

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last blogged! So much has happened in the last month, I swear I’ve blinked and missed it (how is it November already?) I started my new job at the end of October which is going really well and loving every minute. As well as this, I’ve been maxed out every weekend which has sadly left no time for my little blog. 

I had a weekend in London a few weeks ago with my boyfriend and brother, which saw us visit Shake Shack for the first time (ALL of the noms) and giving ICEBAR another visit – forever one of my favourite quirky bars in London. Then on the Saturday morning we decided to climb the O2. Heights really aren’t my thing, along with physical activity, climbing or being up before 10am on a Saturday…but it turned out to be really good. We arrived just in the nick of time (cheers to the Uber driver who took us on the longest detour ever), got kitted out and ready to go. 
We had a few fetching snaps taken, then walked up one of the steepest part of the climb. The heights things really wasn’t an issue as you can’t really see anything but the dome until you get on to the viewing deck at the top. Even then it feels totally safe and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be so grateful to stop and breathe for a minute the heights won’t matter! Our guide, Ross, was a fab crazy Scottish dude and the whole thing took about an hour.

I also have to mention Hub by Premier Inn. Have you stayed there before? It’s a quirky little hotel in St Martins Lane and is literally the most space-saving hotel I’ve ever seen. The desk pulls out form the end of the bed, the clothes rail is behind the mirror! Oh, and you can control everything from an app on your phone (lighting, do not disturb, temperature) which, for a nerd like me, was brilliant. The bed was actually comfy, the bathroom had a rainfall shower (er hello) and the breakfast I chose was the Metro box which has fresh porridge with honey and a pastry. Pretty blooming awesome. Here’s to the crazy weekends.
