London Calling! - LFW, Haul, Touristy Bits..

Our view from our bedroom, in the Travelodge, Covent garden.
 Good evening lovelies! I know this post is well overdue, but as some of you fellow-bloggers may know, that the Blogger photo uploader was acting up for the past 2 weeks; very annoying! I've finally been able to upload my London photos - London Fashion Week, touristy trips, food and what I bought over there. There's a ton of photos, but I thought I'd put them all together in the one post as it's easier to follow. I'd recommend that you watch the vlog video I made below, I recorded daily what I got up to and it'll give you a better idea of the trip as a whole. I've also included my haul video at the bottom of the post, which will go into more detail about what I bought. 
I had an absolute ball over there, it really was a trip to remember! I met some amazing people, and got such a taste of the fashion world - LFW definitely made me feel 100% content about the career path I want to go down. I hope to return to fashion week again next season, fingers crossed..

LFW Day 1- Somerset House busy, busy, busy!
My accessories for the week.
The blog bar at Somerset House, where us bloggers could blog daily - very handy!

Note: some of the photos are all wonky, and aren't in line with the rest.. I've tried fixing it, but Blogger just won't let me. I'm getting really, really frustrated with this site lately. Does it ever fully work?! :(
