A Weekend Trip To London - Part 1
London Fashion Week Festival
Hey hey !! How is you doing ? :) As I mentioned on Instagram, two weekends ago (22-24/9) I was in London and this is the first part of the post about it. I don’t know how long this post will be but I will do my best to keep it pleasant (short) to read. :)
So basically (read this with your best British accent ever haha) my friend (Alice) and I decided last minute to go on a trip. Because of our busy schedules we managed to find a weekend that was ok for both of us. Her cousin Sandra also wanted to come so yeah why not? Train tickets booked, 2 more weeks to go, exciteeeed! :)
D-day, Friday 22/9. We met at the train station after work. Is it necessary to mention that I almost missed my train … ? Well, you haven’t heard/read the worst yet hahahah …
Anyways, I met Sandra for the first time in the train! My first impression – a beautiful, sweet and intelligent girl! She really is and she kind off was our Google Maps during the weekend! Thank you for everything hun! :) Two hours long in the train chatting about our lives, our opinions, the underwater train, what we gonna do, how our Airbnb (host) will be, … etc. We arrived around 2100 in London, Saint-Pancras.
When out of the train, all in smiles, I started vlogging. I didn’t have planned to vlog that’s why suddenly I started using my phone. Until we arrived at the Airbnb, wanted to charge the battery of my phone and realized that none of us had thought of bringing the British charger adaptor… Ohh well, there went the idea to vlog/snap everything of our weekend! I had my PC with me so I charged my phone with that and had just enough battery to film the next morning.
Saturday 23/9. LONDON FASHION WEEK FESTIVAL (LFWF) and SHOPPING!
That’s what we had planned to do that day. The LFWF (at 1030) was one hour away from our Airbnb so we had to wake up very early (around 700) for that and also just because we didn’t know exactly where it was hahaha. Thank God – Google Maps is the best! We arrived on time, 945! Yes you haven’t read something about breakfast because until that time we haven’t had a proper breakfast! I drank coffee on the way though!
So arrived at the LFWF, I was happy and exciteeedd! I have always wanted to attend the LFW so with this opportunity to come to LFWF, I was happy and it was fine for me! I know that one day I will make it to the LFW, even the NFW, MFW and PFW (wwoow that’s huge what am saying here but yeah really I hope so, one day!). There was huuuge ligne at the entrance but we had a show earlier than 1200 so we could pass easily. Man I wish, I had vlogged! :)
We got in - friendly staff!! We had reserved seats at the front row and were all excited about what we would see. It started on time and I loved the simple outfit the host of the show had on! Then the show started! I had been to fashion shows before (here in Belgium) so this wasn’t my first. What for me the first time was (and still in shook), was attending THE SHORTEST FASHION SHOW EVER! Only one designer, like come on, where were all the rest? Still a beautiful one though but I mean, did I come straight from BE to L only for just one designer (Fyodor Golan)??!!! Anyway, the show was great and after that there were some activities in the building such as fashion stands, workshops, shops, etc. We received a designer bag (without goodies), all well organized! And some people were nicely dressed woauw, so much inspiration! :) What I loved the most about fashion in London is that a lot of people, most of them have their own style! Not everyone is walking around with the same Sam Smith / Nike sneaker or the same Zara clothing like I see a lot here in BE. We should all have our own style and dress properly!
After our non-breakfast morning we went to OXFORD STREET for some shopping, but first food! More about that (where we went for luch, what I bought, another person that became a friend, ...) in part two coming up soon :)
Me and my Primark and Designer Bag :)
I need this jacket in my life!
Friendosssss: Emma, Alice and Sandra ! :)
And of course I had to pose next to/with the red telephone box! :)
