London Travels StyleOnTheCouchI have, Blog Reader, just returned home from a lovely weekend in London.  I stayed at The Royal Horseguards Hotel on the river Thames –  perfectly positioned for hopping here there and everywhere in the city which is why I’d recommend it if you are ever in need of a fabulous place to stay.  London was my home for over ten years but as with all cities so much changes…. here I’ve put together some of my top travel tips based on the things I did this weekend. Check them out if you are nearby!

Wahacha South Bank – Mexican restaurant complete with tequila bar at the back. Eat (and drink) here at your peril.

Selfridges department store – this place will remain my London shopping mecca forever.  My favourite parts of the store: the shoe galleries and their denim hall. (I’ll be writing a post soon about my hunt for the perfect pair of denim skinnies so check back if you are interested in reading!)

& Other Stories – a new addition to London’s South Molton Street, & Other Stories is the new premium high-street brand from the H&M group.  It’s more youthful than COS, H&M’s other counterpart, yet with pretty similar prices.  What I was particularly impressed with was their lingerie collection (like my blogger friend Anna said I would, Anna you were so right!) and their accessories range.

The Dean Street Townhouse - one of my favourite places for brunch, lunch, dinner and everything in between.  The English breakfast here is really tasty and the perfect fuel for shopping.

Sassoon Salon – A trip to London isn’t the same without a visit to Sassoon to get my hair back into shape.  This visit I talked to the salon about summer hair; conditioning tips and hair styles that I’m looking forward to bringing you soon.

I hope you had a lovely weekend, Blog Reader!  This week I am posting another of my little black dress (with a twist) series and want to introduce you to a new collection I adore… until then, StyleOnTheCouch xo

    Love these photos, Sarah! It looks like you had a lot of fun.

    So funny you just mentioned & Other Stories, I read about them on another blog recently (can’t remember which) and noticed that they don’t ship to the US. So hugely depressing.

    Did you pick anything up while you were there?

      I saw some really lovely pieces in their lingerie collection in collaboration with Lake and Stars that I loved! If you want me to pick you up anything you know I will be your personal shopper and send them to you so let me know. I love their bodysuits, I have a pic of one to instagram this week and I’ll tag you so you can see it. Great colours and patterns. x

    Oh, I am glad I found time to read this post before leaving for London on Saturday… I only have three days in the city, which is not nearly enough time to fit in all the things I want to do, like to stop to get my hair done and spend hours trying on clothes. However, I will definitely be making a trip to Wahacha – Mexican food in Paris is non-existent and I miss it a lot, but I hadn’t thought to look for it in London!
