Whilst coming back home from a holiday is always a downer, I’m really looking forward to making use of all the ideas we came up with on the trip. I hope you found looking through these photos as inspiring as I found taking them… They’re all really nice, huh! Keep your eye out for our next blog post – we’ll be taking a trip to Monte Carlo and sharing our Top 5 things to do 😀
Hello lovelies! This week we’ve been having a little home holiday and it has been absolutely amazing. Who knew staying in your home town for a week could actually result in a lot of fun new discoveries?
Over the weekend we managed to take a lovely little break in London which very much needed! We’ve been working crazy long hours getting ready for our big Renegade stall and whilst everything is looking great and nearly there, burning the candle at both ends was certainly taking its toll. David managed to get tickets to go see the NFL game at Wembley and I got the chance to go for a lovely wander round my favourite city 🙂
London is beautiful at this time of year as all the leaves are changing colour and the Christmas decorations are going up but it’s still warm enough to go out without a coat! We took full advantage of the lovely weather (there was meant to be a ‘killer storm’ but it was blustery at best where we were) and had a lovely walk in the parks and a good explore around Covent Garden and Carnaby Street.
We had a lovely lunch at Pix which is a bit like Yo Sushi as all the food is already made and out for you to grab, but the food is a big mixture of incredible combinations and changes often. It was totally delicious and defo worth visiting if you get the chance! Each item of food has a pick in it which symbolises how much the item cost. You keep them in a jar at your table and total them up at the end to get your bill 🙂 I love a gimmic! We also went to The Diner for milkshakes. I’ve been a fan of these restaurants since they opened and they’re still going strong which is great to see. This month they’re doing some tasty themed Halloween specials which are a lot of fun and made me very happy!
I think my favourite thing we did over the weekend was eat donuts in the park. You can wine and dine me, but it’s the simple things that count 😉 It was really nice and peaceful which is exactly what we needed before our final push. Being back home now I’m feeling pretty refreshed and raring to go. I’ve got my to do list all written up and a couple more new things in the pipeline already which I’m really looking forward to sharing in the very near future 😀 I’m planning to do a big blog post on our market prep so you can see what we’ve been upto behind the scenes.
If you’re planning a trip to London on the 9th and 10th November make sure to pop in and say hello! David and I are both going to be there and we’d love to meet you 🙂
Renegade Craft Fair
Truman Brewery,Brick Lane, London
If you’ve already got plans to come to the show or have any tips or advice for the event we’d love to hear from you 🙂 We’ve never taken our stock on such a big adventure before and we’ve never done a two day event before so we’re not sure what to expect… I bet it’s going to be epically good though 😀
This weekend we went to check out the big classic car show at East Fortune. I used to go to these car shows a lot when I was younger; our family love vintage cars so we used to have big family day’s out at them, which was a lot of fun. It’s been more than 10 years since I’ve been to an event like this, so I was a little intrigued as to what I’d discover!
Whilst there was a lot of amazing cars at the event, there was a lot of other incredible things we really didn’t expect to see… like the Concorde! The venue is actually the National Museum of Flight air field. There is a lot of incredible old airplanes tucked up in hangers that you can climb on board and have a look at which was really fun. This is the cockpit of the infamous Concorde planes. I wish we could have flown on one of these. I’d love to go sonic-speed to New York!
We also got the chance to see The White Helmets bikers perform some spectacular stunts. I didn’t really know much about them before now, but I have to admit I’m hooked! Here they are all riding on a motorbike. Crazy, huh! And they used bikes to jump through flaming hoops too. Totally awesome! Apparently a lot of the drivers don’t even actually have their licences. They drive better than most though!
Last, but certainly not least, were both really excited about getting to see lots of amazing owls too. Check out these two little fellows! They were so heartbreakingly cute. There was a really long queue to hold them which we didn’t have time for, but it looked like a lot of fun. Maybe next time!
So, all in all, we had a brilliant weekend. Who knew there was so much to be fun at a classic car show still? We’re getting really into going to random days out over our weekends… who knows what’ll happen next week!
Keep your eye out on wednesday for more photos 🙂
