London part two


finally got round to typing up part two. have been off work poorly today, full of cold and feel like poo but anyway....onwards with the final part of my visit to london last weekend.




so we got up on saturday morning after the fun of the evening before and emma told me to get ready for the day as we were going somewhere...but she couldn't tell me where as it was a surprise.

now i HATE surprises with a passion as i always feel really on edge and my mind starts thinking over time as to what it could be.

we jumped on the tube and i just put my head down and followed her, feeling a bit sick.

eventually we jumped off the tube and made our way up to street level. turns out the surprise was Madame Tussauds.

the knot in my stomach disappeared and we joined the queue to get tickets.





now normally i go crazy for anything remotely gaga related as im a HUGE fan...but im sorry this looks nothing like her!




beyoncé's was slightly better but its still just weird!


next up we came across the marvel experience which included a 4D experience which was AMAZING! anything related to super heroes or marvel makes me very happy!

the hulk ripped a whole in the floor and climbed his way up to spend some time with his friends.





i literally just stood around with my mouth open at this point, everything looked awesome! check out the shield!!!!! THE SHIELD!!!!



oh stark....i didn't like the first 2 iron man films but you ROCKED in the avengers...and iron man 3 looks purely epic...





when i was younger i used to love the spider man cartoon, the first lot of films were ok but i never really liked the actor who played peter.

saying that though, the new film was amazing! Andrew Garfield really became peter parker!




after we finished mooching around in there we popped over to covent garden and grabbed some lunch in Jamies italian. as we waited at the door to be seated Leslie Jordan walked past me...im a MASSIVE will and grace fan and almost passed out...made the weekend! i had the crab risotto with crushed amaretti biscuits...it was lovely!  




that evening we saw viva forever, i never thought in a million years id enjoy it as much as i did. i mean i grew up with the spice girls so i know all the songs and love them but i was worried about the show making it cheesy. IT WAS AMAZING! the songs were performed in a unique way which gave a whole new element. the story was brilliant and funny. the cast we're lively and interacted with the crowd. 

it was actually so good im taking my mum to see it as a mothers day present (purely because i want to go again).





sunday was a hard day, we had to treck around london with our suitcases. we made do though and payed a visit to camden market. check out them donuts!



i made it my mission to go in to selfridges and buy the cheapest thing i could possibly find. i eventually found a keyring notebook for 99p and snapped up my yellow bag.

then i let my wallet talk and spent more money that i intended to on a bluetooth speaker and some stationary for work.

all in all an awesome weekend! need to visit the city more often!
