My visit to London + Mini OOTD

Hey! Its Phoebs :)
How has your week been? I have been on half term, which has been very relaxing, but I am not looking forward to school tomorrow. Getting up at 6:45 will be a struggle. Coffee will be needed haha. Anyways, I visited London with my uncle, aunt and little cousin on Friday. They live in Yorkshire so visiting a city like London is a treat for my cousin. We were on the train and she asked me when the last time I was on a train was. I had been on a train the day before, but she hadnt been on a train since the last time we took her to London, which was 2 years ago! Crazy stuff, how our lifestyles differ. 

First off on our visit to London, was the Natural History Museum. I hadn't been for years, so it was interesting seeing what had changed and what was the same. Of course Dippy the Dinosaur was there! I didn't really think about taking pictures so I don't have very many. 
I always prefered the science museum because it seemed more interactive, but Hattie (my cousin) loved the museum, particularly all the animals. She is very into horses, I think they have 2 in their stables in their garden at home. I say garden, but it is more like fields, haha. They live very country lives, which sometimes I envy, they are so outdoorsy and its always calm. But I do like city life a lot. 

Next we went to Yo! Sushi in the Harvey Nicholls department store. I had never heard of Harvey Nicholls, but it is on the same street as Harrods, so its a pretty big deal haha. 
 This was some of the clothes. It was very posh. There was a red dress which I'm sure you could get for £50 in ASOS, but it was £3,500!! The whole experience was quite amusing. Once you have seen childrens gucci slippers, there is no going back, haha. A highlight had to be when my cousin ripped off her shoes to try on baby guccis. 
 They also had an amazing beauty department, with high end makeup brands spread across the whole floor. You name a brand, it was there. 
Next stop was Leister Square, as my cousin wanted to visit the extremely large Waterstones book shop, The childrens section in the Waterstones was bigger than the local Waterstones I go to! I hadn't brought any money so I didnt buy a book, but I think my cousin came out of the shop with a selection of 5 horse/dog/farm animal books. 

Final place on our checklist was Covent Garden. Surprisingly, I hadn't been for years. I could barely remember it at all. It was such an interesting place, I definitely want to go back with my friends at some point. There was Chanel, Dior, Michael Kors and lots more. I only got a good picture of Michael Kors, because of how busy it was. 
 All the shops looked very cute and designer, which a lot of them were haha. There was a lot of street performers too, which reminded me a lot of Rome, especially the ones who were 'levitating'. The magicians were also very exciting. The whole place had a very unique buzz to it, which I really liked.
