I can’t believe how many posts there are here already – I feel quite left behind. It has been a somewhat hectic week for me though! I’ve just moved to London from York and what a move it’s been! We’re finally settled into our new flat in the rather trendy spot of Primrose Hill, but contrary to popular belief it’s far from swarming with celebrities – much to my disappointment!
So – I’m going to ensure I spot many a celeb…by visiting the world famous Madame Tussauds in Marylebone. There I can bump into the gorgeous Daniel Craig or maybe even George Clooney…if only I could afford to visit Madame Tussauds NYC – now that would be something! Afterwards I might indulge in a spot of (window) shopping down Marylebone High Street with its many independent shops that prove to be a haven from the madness of nearby Oxford Street.
That’s my Saturday afternoon sorted out, but so to the evening. I quite fancy going to see one of the many West End shows on offer – but my other half isn’t much of a musicals fan. I think I might have found just the thing however! La Clique is a quirky cabaret set in London’s Hippodrome. With a variety of acts to tease and tantalise I think that will be more up his street than an evening of Mamma Mia!
Oh so many things to do – so little time….and money! By the way – if you’re looking for a top notch hotel at a brilliant price – try The Hoxton – a real gem not far from Old Street Station with designer good looks at bargain prices! My favourite things are the soaring bird sculptures hanging down in the entrance and the fact there is free internet access in the lobby, the free milk in the fridge, the full size bars of pears soap (it makes me reminisce!), the funky local area map in the room, the free Prêt breakfast….oh I could go on but why not go see for yourself!
