Lake District

Hey, I am back!

It's been a couple of busy weeks once again, I went for a work/study trip
to Lake District & Manchester, straight after that I went on a business trip 
to Norway, so not much time to write so to say..

But here I am now after a few weeks of absence, to firstly share my
experience of Lake District.

We took the train from London to Oxenholme Station, where we
jumped on a minibus for a tour of Lake Windermere and surroundings.
This place is beautiful, sometimes you forget when living in London,
that there are so many beautiful places in UK and so much amazing nature.
This was my first time in Lake District, and I truly loved it, for the nature,
for the fresh air and for the tranquillity!

We had a really good driver guide, that has been doing these tours for years,
it felt really special to hear the stories from him, as he is a local himself.
It felt so much more real then being on a public tour with just any other guide..

My Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday - the weather was great and I had a lovely day.

I went for a blowdry in the morning to get my hair done, the hair feels 
so soft and nice afterwards, I can really get used to getting blowdry's regularly..

I later met up with my friend in Knightsbridge and we went for lunch 
at Bar Boulud at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, a really nice place with good 
food, they serve a mix of French and American style food, they are famous 
for their burgers, so I had a burger of course ;) it was really good, we also 
tried a really special cocktail, KOKO ALFONSO, a mix of koko kanu, 
mango puree, apricot liqueur and lime, what was so special about it was 
that it was served in a big ice ball, you have like 20 min to drink up 
as otherwise it will start melting and end up on the plate under. 
I think it added to the excitment that it was a "limited availability" cocktail lol ;)

After dinner, we had shopping on our mind, so we started at Harvey Nics 
and walked our way down Brompton Road to Harrods, I even managed to 
get a quick peek in H&M and walked out with a dress :)
I had fun doing what I enjoy the most, we were browsing for the new 
season so to say, there are so many nice things, I can hardly wait for 
winter, haha, even if I love summer more!
