London, Day One

As I mentioned briefly on Saturday, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to the UK this past week with Boohoo.com and NKPR! It was a complete whirlwind; I got to learn about Boohoo, one of the UK's biggest online retailers, check out the gorgeous sights of London and Manchester, and meet some of my favorite fellow Canadian bloggers, Jen, Alicia and Elizabeth

I flew overnight on Monday and arrived in London Tuesday morning, and while feeling a little crazy and disheveled, had to take the opportunity to roam around the city on our first day. We had the afternoon to ourselves before meeting up for dinner with the whole crew, so I wandered around with Jen & Alicia, taking in the sights and doing a bit of shopping. I can't get over how beautiful the city is! I can't wait to go back someday! Following dinner I took my jet-lagged self to bed in my amazing hotel room at Dorset Square - seriously, how gorgeous was my headboard?! I'm completely in love.

Stay tuned for more of my Boohoo experience this week! 

(Thanks to Jen for the group shot, I didn't have one on my camera so I stole hers to share here!)

  16. It looks like you had such an amazing time, even though it was probably a whirlwind experience.

    I'm sure the excitement of the trip helped you power through the jet lag, at least a little bit.
