the second day in London was one of the coolest days ever. On the evening before I had read on Instagram that there will be a meet and great with Victoria from IntheFrow (I admire her) so we threw all of our plans away and made a new one. Meeting Victoria. She was at a Boots drug store at 11 a.m.
So we went to Oxford Street right after breakfast and as there was enough time left before the meeting we took a right into Regent Street to have a look at two shops I was interested for. Anthropologie first. We went in their and I gotta admit that this was the most beautiful and detailed store I had ever seen. Totally awesome. I got two mugs with our initials on them. I wanted to order them online for so long and was so happy to get them there.
The second store was the Coach store. I was looking forward to this for so long and I was happy that they had one. The store window was so pretty. With lots of bags and a springish scene. They had so many pretty bags and so many different colors and shapes and such a variety. But boy there are some which are pretty expensive. I fell in love with a satchel bag in a dusty rose shade and they also had it in a blue shade and some others and I couldn´t decide. So we went to Boots for the meet & greet and to decide afterwards on the color.
I was so nervous and happy on our way to Boots. I still couldn´t believe that Victoria is there. I told Florian the whole time how cool it would be to see her on the street or in a shop but really meeting her was awesome.
We got up to the top floor and there she was. Wearing her gorgeous Gucci coat and Stuart Weitzman overknees. She is such a cute person and she really took her time to talk to everyone for a few minutes. This was the coolest thing on my London trip. I also loved her hair. I think there is no one who suits grey hair better than her. This was a L´oréal campain for their new Colorista hair color.
After all of the excitement I had to have a Starbucks coffee first and decide on the color on the Coach bag.
I decided to go with the dusty rose shade. The leather is so incredible soft you have to touch it otherwise you wouldn´t believe it.
We went through Carnaby Street to have a look at it and then after our short break we went back on the Underground to go to the London Eye for a ride and a great view over the city. Unfortunately there where so many people that we decided to go to the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. It was really cool to have a look at all These great sights. We had a closer look at the Tower Brigde while Walking over and this was incredible. The whole building is so detailed.
After our walk on the Tower Bridge we went to Harrods. This is the most incredible and expensive store I have ever seen. The have all the high class designer brands and luxury jewelry you could imagine. And the food hall is stunning. There are so many different types of meat, fish, cheese and chocolates. Incredible.
We went to their Laduree counter (it is a shop in shop system – so pretty everything in mint) to get us some treats and afterwards we got on the underground to head to the hotel.
This was our longest day. We hadn´t been walking and exploring this much the day before and after.
After a quick shower and some rest we headed to the Hard Rock Café for dinner. There was such a great atmosphere and I liked at the “relics” of the old rock bands and rock singers. We had to wait at the bar for about 40 minutes til we got a table but that was just fine because there was so much to see and they have a great variety of beer.
We had a Burger (Florian) and a Caesar Salad (me) for dinner. Both were delicious.
And finally after our last stop (the Hard Rock Café shop to get us London t-shirts) we got back to the hotel for some sleep.
This was a pretty exciting day though.
Thanks for stopping by.
Take care. See you.
