Shopping & Cocktails In My City <3 London

I know it’s been a while since I posted but I’m back….since recovering from my operation and being able to live my life again for now…things are back on track. New Job in Recruitment, good friends who I can trust and an amazing family. I have been living life to the max lately, and realised I missed blogging about my adventures :p

This weekend was no exception to my “you only live once” Saturday started with a little bit of shopping In Central London and couldn’t resist having a photo by the David Gandy for Autograph billboard outside m&s haha!!

Best thing after shopping is cocktails and I found a new perfect afternoon cocktail spot in London. The W hotel London by soho is ideal we sat by a modern day fire, with great music playing in the background the lounge bar makes you feel comfortable enough that you want to stay. I was drinking Little Italy cocktails, at £12 a drink it’s a little on the pricey side, but we’ll worth the money.

Do you have any post shopping cocktail bars in London you can recommend??

Hope tomorrow is a good start to your week

I Got The Job/ OOTD

Hey sweeties, I firstly I have some amazing news! I got a new job In London in the heart of the city Ill be working as a team secretary and working 9-5pm I am so excited! I start Monday. I feel that they really wanted me to work there as the salary that was advertised they raised for me when they offered me the position. Its crazy to think that this time a month ago I was just recovering from surgery, 3 weeks ago I got my results to say all is ok for now and Monday I start a new job yaaaay.  The job I was in before was really unsocial hours and there wasn’t very nice people so I am very nervous to see how I feel about this new job but also I am positive. Today I decided to venture out to Westfield Shopping Centre which is next to where the Olympic stadium is to buy a few things for my new job, I have bought way too much but I did stick to my budget of £100 I am short on cash at the moment plus I need spending money for Barcelona in 2 weeks. I’ll blog about my purchases the weekend 🙂

How cool is this Eagle statement necklace from Topshop? I actually bought this In April and normally I find Topshop jewellery too expensive however this was only £10 in the sale and I know I will be wearing this a lot.

Life’s looking up for me now, for the moment anyway! and I am so proud of myself for turning things around and getting back on my feet instead of crumbling when the chips were down. I have to go through all of my shopping now *giggles* it has been a very productive day for shopping lol.

Hope you all have a lovely Friday and weekend.
