Southbank Christmas market & Winter Wonderland

This has been a rather christmassy week for me as I have now been to both a Christmas market and Winter Wonderland. 
 
First, the Christmas market was the Southbank one which I visited with the girls from work one night this week. Mulled wine, food and a carousel ride was on the agenda and I had a great time. I definitely recommend visiting during the week in the evening if you can as it is so much quieter.

As for Winter Wonferland, if you like to queue for things, then this is the place to be! I had a good time when I visited with the bf, my cousin and brother yesterday but my oh my was it busy.

Me and my cousin went on one of the roller coasters. We’re the two on the right (haha).

Then the four of us went on the haunted house ride. Halloween Horror Nights at universal studios has definitely made me a lot more tolerant towards scary things so this was a breeze!
 
Afterwards, it was mulled wine time and then we escaped the crowds and went to an arabic restaurant with my parents. Yum! 
 
In other news, I’ve almost done my xmas shopping I think yay!
 
Have you visited any Christmas markets yet?

Neal’s Yard and Covent Garden – London PART 3

Sorry for the delay with the last instalment in my London day trip. Feels a bit silly posting it when I live here now, but I love the photos so I have to show them off. Here’s PART 1 and PART 2 if you missed them.
 
After seeing a photo of Neal’s Yard on Pinterest, I kept it on my travel board waiting for the next time I went to London. It was worth the wait. Such pretty colours!

Old Spitalfields Market & Brick Lane: London PART 2

Another London ambition fulfilled! The next stop on my London day trip was Old Spitalfields Market. I will admit, this was the first time in the day where I got a little lost. I don’t think I’ve ever walked up and down the same street three or four times in quick succession while holding my iPhone with Google maps open. I found it eventually though.

Portobello Market: London PART 1

Since I took so many photos in London on Friday, I decided it was best to split up the posts. First up, Portobello Market. 
 
One of my first posts on this blog was about how much I would love to go to Portobello Road (here) so it was a dream come true!
