On Borough Market, Shopping & A Perfect Day With My Best Friend

To make the most of this free week I've had before I go back to school next week until the summer holidays, I decided to make plans with my beautiful friend Hannah for a desperately-needed catch up. I hadn't seen Hannah since the middle of April, which, for us, is a very long time to not have seen each other, so on Wednesday we met at London Bridge and wandered to Borough Market to get some lunch. 

If you haven't been to Borough Market before, I would wholeheartedly recommend going, the place is incredible and serves some of the most delicious, fresh food I've ever had. The range of markets there is great too and Hannah and I spent a long time searching for a burger for her and a sausage sandwich for me to make sure that we weren't missing anything else we might want for lunch. My sandwich was delicious and just what I'd been craving in the lovely weather that Wednesday had. After lunch we decided we couldn't miss out on what looked like the most chocolate-y brownie I've ever seen so decided to split it as it was so giant before heading off to the tube station to go to Oxford Street and do some shopping.

Hannah didn't really need to go shopping so she just came along to help me out as I hadn't been shopping for a very long time and had been looking forward to finding some summer clothes. I also wanted to buy some shoes and an outfit for a party we're going to tonight that I'll probably show you in the next few days! Having spent a good hour and a half in the giant Topshop we decided we were in need of a snack so after heading to Marble Arch to try and find the wedges I really wanted but couldn't find in Oxford Street, we headed to South Kensington and bought cupcakes from the Hummingbird Bakery.

Everything about the Hummingbird Bakery is perfect, it's such a sweet little shop whose cupcakes are genuinely to die for (I've decided my birthday cake next year absolutely must must must come from this beauty of a bakery!) and are not too expensive considering what they could possibly charge for them and how amazing they taste. Han and I decided to get the tube to Hyde Park to eat them on the grass in the sun. It was so lovely to just lie on the grass, eating cupcakes, in the early warm evening with my best friend, talking about anything and everything that's happened in the past couple of months when we haven't seen each other. 

She's one of the very good ones, Hannah, we've known each other since we were eight and I can't imagine not spending days like this with her, laughing, shopping, eating and chatting about life and its many peculiarities. Luckily I get to see her again tonight for the party so won't have to wait anywhere near as long until I see her again! Here's to many more days like this, and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend xo
