So last Saturday I headed to London for the weekend and flew back Monday night. From Glasgow to London is possibly the quickest flight ever, we actually spent more time circling the hold at Gatwick than we did in the flight itself. Funnily enough I had never been to London before so naturally I wanted to see the sights and do all the tourist stuff but with only one weekend it was a race against time. We stayed in the Pimlico Area which was really handy for Victoria.
I power walked through the streets and up and down the tube stations jumping from all the different tube lines to make sure that I crammed as much as possible into my weekend. I visited Buckingham Palace *and the Queen was in residence*, posed in a photo booth in Topshop Oxford St, made a visit to the massive Lush, munched down a Shake Shack on Saturday night in Covent Garden, mosed around Victoria and Victoria Station, saw Big Ben at Westminster, jumped off the tube at Tower Bridge and went to the Emirates Experience flight simulator with my brother in Greenwich AND visited the Imperial War Museum ALL IN 1 WEEKEND
I’ve left London with many memories ( and a lighter bank balance) but I truly loved my weekend there. Next time I’m aiming for visiting Leister Square, Notting hill and Primrose hill as well as many other areas of London such as Shoreditch.

I really enjoy packing for a trip away 1) because I love organisation and 2) if I’m going to a new city or on a holiday it’s really exciting!
What I tend to do is lay out my clothes onto my bed and start to plan outfits so that once I’ve arrived at my destination I’m not standing in a pile of clothes trying to match together an outfit and instead I can get ready quickly. This also helps me from over packing.
I try to go through in my head everything I wear from morning to night so I don’t forget PJ’s and socks ( which often I do) If your wanting to take something that is bulky like a jumper or hoodie that is struggling to fit in your case, wear it for travelling.
The flight I’m getting tomorrow to London doesn’t allow me to bring a handbag on board *cries* so I need to make sure that beauty products and makeup can fit in my case once I’ve been through security. But I’ll follow up this post with a what’s in my travel makeup bag
Make a list of bits and pieces you plan to take the morning or evening that you are leaving for the airport for things such as toothbrushes and makeup brushes
