Some Quick Instagram Snaps From London


Doing some shopping on New Bond Street!

As I explained in my previous post that I made on Monday, I took a holiday break in London with my boyfriend. We stayed in The Cumberland Hotel which is literally just off of Oxford Street and right next to all of the shops. Selfridges was within a 5 minute walking distance and the majority of the other shops were close too, which was amazing. It’s also located right next to Hyde Park, so I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to see London! It’s worth the money as it’s gorgeous inside too!

We did lots and lots of shopping, going in Selfridges, Zara, French Connection, Victoria Secret, Cambridge Satchel, Butler & Wilson, Chanel, Jimmy Choo and loads more! I’ve got quite a few things that I ended up buying, including 6 new bras from Victoria Secret which I have been living in, a new Cambridge Satchel in yellow which is an early birthday present to myself and a grey glitter one from my boyfriend, but I can’t have it yet. Both were in the sale too!

I got a top from French Connection which had been reduced £11.50, some new Butler & Wilson jewellery, some chocolates from Liberty, some new Pixi lip balms which I adore, a linen dungaree piece and spotted tee from Zara and I think that’s it! I will be making a purchases post for you soon though so you can see everything. But anyway, here are the snaps that I took from London for Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) from my iPhone as I never took the real camera. Enjoy!


All of my shopping bags! Some of these are my birthday presents though which I can’t have just yet!


Romantic dinner at Prezzo! It’s just literally across the road from The Cumberland Hotel!


My new Cambridge Satchel Mini in Yellow!


I thought this newspaper stand was cool, lots of different languages.


The bathroom in our hotel room! That shower was absolutely amazing!


I had always wanted to go to the Butler & Wilson shop and finally got to go!


The coolest Magnum window display in Selfridges!


The Cumberland Hotel lobby! It’s beautiful!


I couldn’t resist buying some special chocolates from Liberty!


I might be rich with this amount of gold! Ha ha!


Such a cool bear statue on Oxford Street!


Outside the Jimmy Choo boutique and I was gutted that it was closed!
