Today Sunita came into town to visit and I wasn’t quite sure if it was too early for a visitor but it turned out to be perfect timing! I love that I have someone to explore around with my first few days getting settled into European living.
And guess where we end up? Right back at Oxford st. Literally where I just was yesterday. We both wanted to shop and I had passed so many stores the previous day that I couldn’t stop into so I thought it was the perfect opportunity. Sunita introduced me to the brand Bershka and I’m officially obsessed, like how on Earth did I not know about this place?! I have to be honest it’s been a while since I’ve been really shopping. I really hate shopping in the States and the amount of stuff that gets sent to me it almost seems a little glutinous to do so.
But we’re in London so I have to….it’s just too good. Plus I sold a bunch of my clothes and gave them to donation before moving. So I actually need them (things I tell myself to feel better.)
After shopping, we popped into a nearby restaurant The Mayfair Chippy and had some fish and chips and wine, then we stopped into The Spaghetti House and had more food and wine. So we pretty much ate and drank and shopped and had the most random unplanned day.
Tomorrow it will probably be more structured day of exploration and definitely looking to go out somewhere at night since its FRIDAY! We are both jet lagged and low functioning and currently eating chips and drinking wine on my bed at 12:41 am. With that, I’ll say goodnight.
I’m still getting settled but so far I’m loving London.
