Hyde Park

I decided to yet again head down to London, to do some much needed tasks 

These did include, shopping, bar hopping and of course taking a trip to Hyde Park on a hot summers day 

As you can see my priorities are just right

We grabbed a few shopping goodies, which I am very excited about, and wandered our way over to Hyde Park 

Daisy chose to wear a cute little sheer top, paired with Topshop shorts and Dune espadrilles 

Now before I get side tracked let me show you my little purchases, after stupidly choosing to wear jeans and boots that day, I went and bought an entirely new outfit which gave me the ability to fully embrace the sun 

I chose to wear a Topshop large shirt, Topshop shorts and my newest favourite edition a pair of Tory Burch espadrilles

I just couldn't contain my excitement so I had to go and throw it all on 

Daisy and I decided to take a leisurely stroll through the park that morning before I had to yet again make the dreaded journey back home for work 

On our journey we came across a few little things that have stuck in my mind 

The first thing were the ginormous multi coloured sculptures placed at the entrance, I honestly feel I need these bad boys in my house when I am older, they were honestly awesome 

The swan's and ducks on the river were flocking around some enthusiastic tourists who were throwing mounds and mounds of bread in 

Everyone was shrieking with laughter and dipping their toes into the river 

Now if you know me well, you will know I am not a real fan of bird's, so I had a little look from a far then made a swift exit 

Further down the river were pedalo's, I desperately wanted to hop on board and peddle my heart out, but unfortunately my excitement was cut short by the lack of time 

As we strolled a little further down the river we came across the perfect people watching bridge, it was situated central of the park so it gave you a perfect 360 degree view 

We spent some time here being typical snap happy goers taking lots of photos, once we ended up beginning to annoy most the individuals that had chosen this area to relax, we made a quick dash 

Around the corner we came across this little bundle of beauties, not only were they bright with the sun shining off their petals, but they were also Daisy's 

So of course we couldn't not have a few photos of Daisy with Daisy's 

Unfortunately my curfew was looming upon us, we walked through the final bit of the park 

Well I say walked, a more appropriate description would be hopped, skipped and jumped our way through the park 

Until we were met by the main road, we had made our way out the surreal quietness of Hyde Park back onto the busy and hectic London lifestyle 

Until next time London

Royal Ascot Day 2

The next day loomed upon us, after running around the shops the evening before grabbing a last minute outfit we were most definitely unorganised 

We decided to pop into town before heading in to grab a bite to eat 

After we consumed far to much food for one day, we threw our dresses on and headed over 

Today we were in the Grand Stand, this gave us the ability to extent our people watching considerably 

The races was packed with people from all over the world 

I chose to wear another Karen Millen dress, with M&S shoes and a Chanel Bag 

Throughout the day we weeved in and out of people to take full advantage of our tickets 

We opted to watch the races from up high, inside, in the parade ring, as well as right up at the front 

We cheered our chosen horses along, and had all our fingers and toes crossed that they would win 

And guess what, they did! 

It was definitely a productive day for us 

Once the last race finished, everyone swarmed around the Band stand and got prepared for a real sing along 

The tunes began to belt out, with me howling along to the Saints came marching in, and numerous others 

Unfortunately we had to make our way back home, so snuck out the back quietly and made a fleeting exit
