This weekend we went to visit my family in London for four days. We went with the two monsters and my mum. I am always so happy and excited to see my family. We try to see each other twice a year, once in Belgium and once in London!
We had a lovely time all together; barbecue, walks with the doggies, playing in the garden with the children, and of course a little bit of sightseeing and shopping.
My hubby had never seen the center of London, so on saturday we did a very nice excursion on the Thames. The cruise last 1 hour and a half more or less and gives you the possibility to see many sights from the River Thames like Westminster, London Eye, Tower of London and Greenwich. The weather was beautiful, it was very relaxing and we enjoyed it a lot. If you don’t have a lot of time to visit London or you don’t want or like to walk I can highly recommend you to make this cruise on the Thames.
After the cruise we needed to put some food in our bodies! We decided to eat at Greenwich, where we got off the boat, and we wanted to eat hamburgers so we stopped at Byron. At Byron you eat proper burgers, it was delicious, we had a table outside and the view was beautiful. We even got sunburnt! Our stomachs were full, it was time to go shopping! The first stop was Space.NK as I had a little list of products I wanted to buy (I’ll make another post about that soon), I also went to Lush to get a refill of bath bombs. After beauty stuff, it was time to take care of hubby! We went to Topman (Topshop for men) and my cousin, who is a personal stylist, picked up some great outfits for him. He really looks gorgeous in his new clothes! We obviously went to Topshop for us after but we were very reasonable and also very tired! 😉
I really enjoyed that saturday, it was like the perfect day. I felt like I was on a holiday. The monsters were with my mum, and I was able to relax my mind completely and having lunch with calm was absolutely amazing! 🙂
