Justifying weekends where I can’t afford to do anything

It's nearly the weekend!

My Eggcelent Weekend in London

My friend left me in charge of arranging the activities for our weekend in London. My first thought was doing something tourist-y, but I hate walking around London looking like a tourist! It’s definitely not like Joey in Friends with his map! Searching the internet, I stumbled across something utterly amazing- and I loved it so much I just had to do a blog post on it!

If you haven’t heard of The Big Egg Hunt, it is amazing. Usually when I go to London, I rely on the Tube for getting around and I actually have no idea where anything is above ground! Having to walk around London all day in the sunshine to find eggs really made me appreciate how beautiful London is!

The hunt itself is pretty straight forward- leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers have created over 200 eggs and hidden them around London for everyone to enjoy. The challenge is to find as many eggs as you possibly can! There are 12 Zones to eggplore (I cannot get enough of these egg puns!), including Canary Wharf and Covent Garden, and all the money raised from the hunt will be donated to Elephant Family and Action for Children.

So if you’re in London  at any point between now and the 9th April, give it a go! I can’t promise the weather will be as beautiful as it was for us on Saturday, but I can guarantee you’ll have a cracking time! (Okay, I will definitely stop with the egg puns now!)

 

 

I am so proud we found the Where’s Wally egg- he moves around every day to a secret location! I must admit, we did have very tired feet by the end of the day, but it was worth it!

My Beaut of a Bag

This is a super speedy quick post, just because I feel I may have neglected my blog over the past few days in favour of actually doing things outdoors!! I do love blogging, but when it’s sunny I have to take the hint- it’s time to shut the laptop down and head outside!!

I’ve been in London visiting a friend from university this weekend and I had an amazing time- there will be a blog post on it tomorrow, I promise! I will also give you lucky readers 2 MORE posts as well- you lucky, lucky things!

On Saturday, I saw this bag in Dorothy Perkins and couldn’t resist- I’d seen a similar one I wanted from ASOS, but I thought this one was prettier. And my money was yearning to be spent, so I had to give in!

Let me know what you think! 🙂
