Day 3 might have been my favourite day in London - the Next team showed us such a great time! First up it was breakfast at famous The Wolseley. I'm not usually a sweet tooth but I couldn't pass up these pancakes - I did not regret these one bit! Then it was off to the Bond St Next store for a style challenge - you've already seen my first outfit but my second is coming soon (see a sneak peek in my Day 3 video diary). Next it was off to The Shard where we were treated with a stunning lunch at Oblix - I order tuna tartare which I wish I had right now (my mouth is watering just thinking about it). The food was incredible but the view was breathtaking. After we spent the afternoon wandering around south London we headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner at Sketch. I didn't think anything could top the day we had but Sketch was unreal. It was like we were in the middle of a Wes Anderson film and it just blew my mind the whole time. Great food, great eye candy (decor, staff and customers - it was definitely 'the place to be' in London) and great company! Also those toilets - boy, what a spin (check out my video above to see what I'm on about)!

Third day in London and I was right into the swing of things - jet lag was long gone. We had a bit of time to wander around by ourselves for an afternoon and that was probably one of the best parts of the holiday as I love walking around a new city not knowing where I'm going and not knowing what I'll find around any corner. It was bizarre walking through the streets and seeing the things I've only ever seen on TV or in movies (those apartments with the black doors and flowers in window boxes! Obsessed). More on Day 3 soon! I've just returned from Splendour and currently working on my Day 3 video diary. You can see Day 1 & 2 on my Youtube channel 'spindizzyfall'

While in London with Next we were asked to take on a series of style challenges! This was so fun for me as it basically involved strolling through a huge Next store in the city and picking my favourite pieces to make up an outfit. For this one I went black & white. I'm not typically seen in white, but when I wear it it's usually lace! I layered this batwing piece with a slinky slip underneath. I have to say my favourite part of this outfit is the accessories! This huge leather clutch is perfect - I took it home with me and have been using it a lot since that day. I also wore these shoes a few nights while in London and received compliments from people on the street.

Day 2 was even better than "Day 1" - as I say in my video, the first day was mind blowing but by the second day we were a bit more relaxed and able to really open our eyes and enjoy ourselves. First we ate breakfast at The Breakfast Club in Soho - I over ordered as I was feeling jet-lagged plus had a lobster-hangover (not in a good way)! Ick. Luckily the porridge was brilliant. After a bit of souvenir shopping on Oxford St we headed over to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard - it was crazy busy. I didn't capture it in my video but at one point the band started playing the theme song from Game of Thrones! It was so surreal being there. After a stroll through Trafalgar Square we headed to an old English pub for a pint of English cider. While resting our feet a lovely Irish business man decided to shout us all another round which was delightful! He the recommended a great place for tapas which we took a black cab to for lunch where I tried black pudding. In the afternoon we went on a (not so scary) Ghost tour around the city. It was too light for anything spooky to occur but we were able to see so much of the city and then took a ride on a boat down the Thames to the Tower Bridge. We ended the day with a jugs of Pimms in Shoreditch. Stunning day and I wouldn't change a thing about it.
