My 26th Birthday Surprise: London

So in case you missed the memo, yesterday was my 26th Birthday! However, the celebrations kicked off a bit early with a 3 day surprise trip to London on the 19th from my boyfriend and his mum. We stayed at the Novotel Tower Bridge which was absolutely stunning! As many times as I've been to London; it's always been for business and so it was great to visit for pleasure. Oh yes, I suddenly became a full blown tourist. Even though I'm more of a small city girl who would never consider living in London as its way too busy for my liking, it is undoubtedly beautiful.


Some of the finest architecture is in London; my favourite place being South Kensington where we spent one of the three days shopping, visiting museums and of course eating. During our time in London, we also visited the Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, the Big Ben, Tower of London and Tower Bridge. If this is what it feels like to be 26, I'm so ready to take it head on. Get that coffee ready & race yourselves, I think I took a little too many pictures.
