LONDON TRAVELS | AND MY FIRST EVER VLOG!

This post is long over due. On the 18th of May, me and my gals Natasha and Mariam went to London, and wow what an experience that was! We had the best time, but it was also really stressful, London is such a fast paced city, it's safe to say we spent most of our time travelling about.


However, we did manage to go to the Harry Potter Studios, Sky Garden, Ice Bar, and Madame Tussauds! And whilst I was out and about, I vlogged for the first time!
DAY 1: We got split up in the train station on our way to London, me and Tash jumped on board the train, and upon setting off realised Mariam hadn't got on, it was like a movie. As the train began to move we saw Mariam stood there in the station, honestly thought our whole trip was over. We managed to persuade the ticket people to let us board the next train as we'd missed the one we booked, as we waited for Mariam to catch up to us on the next train. I'm sooo happy we got everything sorted, we were so lucky.

This was my second time visiting the HP studios, it was unreal. There were a few new bits which was exciting, such as the HOGWARTS TRAIN!!!!!! The excitement was unreal. I decided to vlog it instead of taking lots of photos, as I did that on my last trip, which you can read about that here, and see all the amazing photos!


DAY 2: We had a little mooch round Oxford Street, the shops were huge, but we didn't spent hardly any time shopping as we had booked the Sky Garden. I honestly didn't expect it to be literally in the sky, I'm really quite thick tbh. Upon arrival I felt like I had vertigo, it was worth it though, the views were stunning, and we had a gorgeous cocktail so that was a bonus. We also went to the Ice Bar that night which was an experience and a half. You had to get wrapped up in a giant cape and gloves, literally everything inside this room was made of ice, even the glasses you had your cocktails in. It was -5/-7 degrees, it was insane.



DAY 3: Madame Tussauds was so worthwhile, I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I fangirled over everyone so hard, they look so real it was really like being surrounded by celebs. I was most excited about my bae Daniel Craig, I dunno about you.



We had some lovely food and drinks on our trip, everything was so expensive though, we had to start getting Ubers instead of taxis. The hotel we stayed in was the Norfolk Plaza hotel, and mergh, I wouldn't really recommend. We actually went to the wrong hotel on our first day and got so excited, because it looked stunning, and then felt great disappointment when we realised where we were actually staying...haha.



I'm so proud of myself for vlogging, especially in public. I've wanted to start making Youtube videos for the longest time, ever since making music videos was the big thing years and years ago. It would mean the world to me if you could watch my vlog, subscribe and all that fun stuff.



Do you have a Youtube channel? Let me know in the comments below as I'd love to watch your videos!! XOXO B.
