So how did you spend your Saturday night? I spent mine drinking cocktails and swishing about with Cinderella and Snow White. Completely normal.
Zoe invited me to be one of her guests to the luscious long party which was held at Avalon in Shoreditch, London and I happily accepted. I hopped on the (beautifully) air conditioned train and sped off to London where I spent far too long dealing with tube closures. Ick. I eventually found the tube, and walked to the hotel – walking into the lobby was so lovely as it was freezing cold with the air con! After trying to sort out the mix up with the rooms (Crowne Plaza Shoreditch, your staff suck)
I eventually made it to my room (loving the copy of Marie Claire on the bedside table, a nice touch. Not sure if thats standard in Crowne Plaza rooms!) and flopped down on the bed before remembering that because of all the delays since getting to London, I only had an hour or so to get ready. Zoe had had the same problems as I did with tubes and bookings, so didn’t really get to the hotel till half 6 – the event was due to start at 7!
Because one of Zoe’s friends was unable to come, and then the replacement guest was unable to come at the last minute, she dragged James along who intended to have a quiet night in the hotel room but instead ended up surrounded by girls as he was invited to join us in the party.
I knew that I was going to ask for a 40’s hair style that I could easily recreate as next weekend we were going to the Chap Olympiad. Zara, who did my hair last time, put it up in two victory rolls and then pinned up the back. She explained what she was doing so well, I’m going to attempt to do it myself!
We were pretty shattered from our fun times with public transport earlier, so we had a glass or two of wine before bed.
Next morning, Zoe, James and I met for breakfast upstairs
The view was pretty epic (this was taken from my seat far away from the window, apologies!)
Zoe and I swapped pictures (which used to be such a typical habit when James and I lived together at uni, everyone swapping about memory cards!) and I left them to it. I knew the Tube was still having issues, so I headed over to Paddington, and mooched in Starbucks (the only place it seemed in Paddington with plug sockets and air con!)
I had such a fun time, thank you Zoe and of course Emma at Uncover Aussie!
