So it's John's birthday this week and even though we both visit London fairly often it is rare for us both to have a day together in the big smoke, let alone for two days without the little man (this is only our 2nd proper night away from him). It was great to have a bit more time to stroll around soho or check out the shops we love but never have time to get too. We stayed in a great little boutique hotel right in the heart of soho which had a lovely courtyard with spiral staircase and sunny roof terrace and best of all in the evening in the terrace they served wine with antipasti's and cheeses, all included, which is a great way to socialise and start the evening off.

|My favourite - Wine, Olives and hummus|
We also had a drink at one of our favourite places on Wardour Street - The Ship, a traditional British pub and a great place to get a pint, which was particularly refreshing since it was starting to creep up into the mid 20's, a temperature we don't feel a lot in Wales.

During the day as we where going to be doing a lot of walking we both went for comfortable outfit choices. My new shorts got a little bit creased on the journey up but they are nice and light, great for a warm day, and eco as well - being part of the HM conscious collection. I also wore my creepers, with my Carlos studded bag and topshop necklace. John sported his YMC loafers with Edwin jeans and Woolrich short sleeve shirt.
|Soho Gardens and Camden Lock|
|Laura is wearing a Gifted/thrifted jacket, Religion vest, Topshop skinnies, Asos boots and Carlos bag|
For the evening I thought I would try out my new shoes I had just ordered from Asos paired with a striped vest from Religion with my gifted jacket, topshop skinny jeans and Carlos bag. We had a great time and the next instalment of what we did on the second day, including visiting Ralph Lauren will be up in a few days....enjoy :)
