What I’ve Been Up To Lately

The past couple of months have been really busy for me, so I thought I would share with you some of the things I have been up to! If you follow me on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) then you will already know that I took three trips to London last month for press events, so I’m sharing those photos with you here, but I also did some shopping, went to the theatre, guest posted for a lot of people and more! So I hope you like some of my photos! Comment and let me know which you like!

Here are some scenery photos from around London, including Big Ben, St Pancras station, a mini style castle etc. I love the popular landmarks in London and how pretty it can be when you walk around. I don’t get to see many sights when I’m there, but I am happy that I have finally seen all of the important places! So below are some pretty photos from London.

I have included just a small preview of photos from some of the press days that I attended below for you. I do plan on making a big post with more of the photos in, but I’m not sure when I will be able to post that one! Here are all of the Spring/Summer 2014 collections!

I got to see the new Paige Denim x Mungo & Maud dog baskets and bones!

On the last day in London, my boyfriend and I had some spare time so we went to do some shopping. We spent a while in Selfridges on Oxford Street, which is one of my favourite stores ever! They had so many amazing decorations, but the huge denim Dodo carrying a sleigh was incredible! I loved it! It must have taken ages to put together! I love the denim pillars and the huge silver disco balls too! If you are in the area, you have to go in and check it out!

We also made a stop at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge as well. I completely fell in love with so many things in there, especially jewellery, shoes and bags! Harvey Nichols is such a beautiful store! It’s amazing for the men’s collection too! My boyfriend got some new Diesel Jogg Jeans in there and we also ate in Wagamama’s. One of my favourite places!

The Disney store on Oxford Street is one of the best! It’s decorated so much like Disneyland, it’s amazing! I love spending time in there, it’s really comforting and magical!

This isn’t related to London, but my boyfriend and I also went to the theatre. We watched a musical called Save The Last Dance For Me. It was set in the war time and romantic, so it was great to watch! I think we were the youngest there in the audience, but I am a huge fan of the older music from that era, so I loved it!

After we left the theatre, we made a stop at Pizza Express to have dinner before going home.
