Casual, Shopping in London & Winter Wonderland

Warning, LOADSSS of photos


So today's post is about Winter Wonderland in London.
So let me start by saying I have never been to the Winter Wonderland in London, this was my first time, I have friends who have been with their boyfriends or family and they said it was amazing and that they had a really good time, but still I wasn't really sure what to expect.
I can honestly say that I wasn't dissapointed! it was huge! there where so many rides, food/drink places and little shops.

Before we went to Winter Wonderland we went to straford shopping to do some christmas shopping, I only bought some macaroons and tights as I had done all of my christmas shopping, however Emily had a lot to do, bless her ><!



All the Macaroons! they had so many different kinds, I brought some home for my parents.


Also found a cute little gingerbread house and christmas cookies.


We also went into the disney store as Emily has a little brother and sisters, we did spend a while in there, Emily had a hard time picking out christmas presents, I guess its hard for little ones.


Disney store ^^

So after walking around a lot we decided to get some food, which was pinkberry because we love it lots!



Me inside Pinkberry, decided to wear casual clothes as we where doing a lot of walking and running around, didnt get a full outfit shot><!

After we had Pinkberry we went to Winter Wonderland, it was pretty easy to get to, you go to hyde park corner, and as soon as you come out of the station they have signs on to Winter Wonderland [because its such a big tourist attraction and so many people go]
So next is just going to be a mass amount of photos that I took while we where there, I was amazed at everything, and how pretty it was, and all the food!
 



You can get these custome made with different messages on them and decorations and patterns.






There candles where so coolm they had these cool 3D pictures in them and looked amazing, would love one, however I would have nowhere to put it:(


ferris Wheel^^ looked so pretty






More sweets, there where sooooooo many sweetie and chocolate places there.





Ok a couple of things about Winter Wonderland If you didn't know.

1. You do not have to pay to get in.

2. As you can imagine its pretty expensive in there, for drink and food, although it does look and smell amazing, they had one stall which did chocolate covered strawberrys and marshmellows which was £4 for one stick! I didn't see how much the alcholic drinks where though. Also the sweet stands and chocolate stands are pretty expensive as well.

3. For the rides you have to buy tokens, there are token stalls all around the place, however to use the ice skating rink that was there you have to book in advance, you can't just turn up on the day and go ice skating, but to be honest when me and Emily walked past it I can see why they use that system because it looked super busy there.

4. I do not recommend going on a weekend [try if possible] to go on a weekday, me and Emily went on a Thursday and even though it wa still busy it was no where near as bad as what it was like on the weekends, apparently you can barley move.

So yea I had a great time there, we finnished the day with having korean bbq food, which was just.....great.



thoughhhh they put a lot of salad cream on my salad, but it was still good! we also had kimchi jon which is pancakes but with kimchi in it, was soo good, buttttt I gobbled it all down before I could take a picture >..<'

Sorry I went a bit camera happy, I actually have a lot more photos on my phone buttttt I thought it would be a bit too much, I just found everything so pretty!
til next post - x

Christmas, birthdays, baking and being ill

So its getting close to Christmas, which is great!....but at the same time bad, its the worst time of the year at work for me as the amount of shop lifters increase dramatically and just in general the amount of busyness is CRAZY. I have also been asked to do a lot more hours because it has been chaotic. 
So now im just looking forward to spending Christmas day with my family as we just stay at home and chill, and I don't really see my family a lot (because my parents are forever going away and we are all busy bunnies, plus I work weird hours so when I come home my parents are asleep) so I am really looking forward to it.
So onward!

I went to see my friend Emilia the other week as I haven't seen her in a while, and I got a train to Newcastle, I would drive but its very far away and traffic is a nightmare in Newcastle!

Arriving into Newcastle

Lili playing with a Toy I had bought her for Christmas, shes grown so much! and her hair is so long! 

Me and Emilia didn't really do much, Newcastle was so busy! you could hardly move! So we went back to hers, I baked us some Oreo brownies and we ate them all>< and watched Inuyasha, this clip made us laugh to no end.


Below was my outfit for on the way there and my make up. I am wearing a Skirt & Seifuku set from http://pixiebunny.com
The Jumper is just a random men's one which I bought because it was so comfy, I have a thing for big baggy snugly jumpers!

 I also bought myself some mini Christmas presents from pixiebunny, what can I say, I am a sucker for cute things
 
It was my dads birthday on the 5th of December and my brothers birthday on the 6th of December, I didn't take any pictures as I was ill, and by ill I mean I was stuck in bed blowing my nose reading books, and that's all I did, thats another reason why December is a bad month for me I always seem to get ill around about that time. I was fine one day, and then the next thing you know I get hit in the face with a cold. 
I did however take a picture of all the chocolate I had bought my dad, I did get my brother some but not as much, I also got them other presents, but I thought that this was an impressive chocolate collection.


I have also been baking a lot recently. Anyone who knows me knows I love to bake and I have doing a lot of brownies, but not just ordinary brownies but ones filled with oreos, milkyway and other chocolates and sweets. Don't worry I have taken pictures of some of my creations.



I am making some cakes for Christmas and at the moment practicing on decoration and making sugar flowers, so when that time comes round I will take plenty of pictures. This is all for now, Im going to continue sorting out my room as I am having a big clear out, and getting rid of things I don't need/use anymore, hopefully will create a lot more space in my room as its very cluttered!So I will end this post with a cute picture of my dog in my room.



oh yea also have Tumblr http://charlihoney.tumblr.com/

Random Yummy things

So I know i havn't posted in a while, work has been so busy! but I have lots to blog about and promise to blog a lot more! 
But here today Im going to dump some random photos that I have taken on my days out with my friends!

Ok so the first set of photos below is when I went shopping with lizzie! we had a pretty chilled out day and was relaxing, we had yummy food and I took pictures of all the yummy foods that we walked by. London Stratford shopping centre seems to have loadsssss of food places inside.




And we also went to pink berry because I love it so much! they have different flavours of frozen yogurt and different topping/sauces that you can choose to put on top. You can choose to have small/medium/large. I only get small though because it fills me up, the medium/large's look huge! Though I am going to attempt one at some point!



In stratford shopping centre there are lots of cake shops, as you can probably tell by the pictures, I have gotten one of these cupcakes before and they where really nice, next time I shall get the name of the place and tell you all about it !





These where my gets for the day, I needed to stock up from lush and I got a few little bits and bobs, the jumper I got below was only £13! and is really fluffy and cosy, perfect for this time of year, because although it appears to look sunny outside, its freezing cold.





So thats it for my random and short update, I will promise my future post's will be better and more information and better pictures, I think I was just like OH MY GOD ALL THE CUTE CAKES more than anything.
Take care x
