I love London

This weekend was a weekend I have been looking forward to for such a long time and now it has gone I am sad :(

There is an incredible charity called the Willow Foundation who organises special experiences for seriously ill 16-40 year olds. These special days are such an amazing thing to be offered and I was delighted for Mairead that they were letting her have a special trip to focus on and look forward too. I was so lucky to get to join in hers along with her sisters and Mum and we had such a fab weekend.

The Fabulous Macleods at Buckingham Palace
The Willow foundation put us up the gorgeous Park Plaza hotel by the Thames in London and whisked us off to see Wicked. Around all this we packed in some amazing dinners, a trip to see the Wizard of Oz,a visit to the London Eye- a boat trip down and The Thames and a wander round the amazing Chanel Une Promenade experience in harrods. We certanly got everything out of the weekend we could have :) In the last year we have gone to London quite a few times but Mairead as always been confiened to her bed in the hospital and not been able to get out and do all the amazing things London has to offer, so this was the perfect opportunity to fit in everything we have wanted to do.

Breakfast in bed don't mind if we do :)
Macaroons in Liberty- YUM!

A champagne trip on the London Eye
Enjoying the view
L'aduree Macaroons!
The Wizard of Oz was amazing,Mai and I had been glued to the BBC show picking the new Dorothy so seeing it all come together on stage was incredible! Then to get to see Wicked in the same weekend was just a dream, I have wanted to see it for so so long and it completely lived up the the Hype,it was absolutely sensational and I loved every second. I now have an odd urge to paint myself green....

chanel at harrods
I cannot recommend enough to anyone in London right now to head on over to Harrods and have a walk around Une Promenade, the mini exhibition dedicated to the life of Chanel is absolutely stunning. I had no idea what it would actually entail- but we were greeted by someone ready to take us on a tour round it the floor- he was really engaging and passionate about the brand d the story. I learned some amazing facts about the reasons behind certain Chanel traits, and about Coco's life and the handover to Lagerfeld. I was captivated by all the incredible detail that has gone in - you must go and see it if you can.

This weekend will never be able to live up to all that excitement, a major huge thanks for the amazing Macleods for taking me along and to the Willow Foundation for giving that to Mai,
