A trip to London/A royal OOTD

Hello lovely ladies, hope your all having a great weekend!! now some of you may or may not remember that a while back i asked you girlie's on some help towards picking out a dress to go to St james palace to receive my gold DofE award!! well that day finally came on Tuesday
so heres a few pictures of my big day haha aswell as a few photos of my amazing two days in london!!
Dress: Warehouse
Shoes: New look
i was so so nervous waiting to go into the palace, but everyone was so lovely it put me at ease..i felt so out of place though in such a magnificent building, literally everything had do not touch and please do not sit placed next it haha.. HRH prince Edward came out and spoke to us in groups which i was quite excited about, and then i was given my award by Tori James, the first welsh lady to walk the magnetic poles..i was expecting the whole event to be rather uptight, but it was such a laugh, the guy who was in charge of my group was making bets, saying that if we kept prince Edward for longer than 10mins, that he would buy us all a pint haha.
one obvious thing you have to do in London is shop!!..(il do another post with my little haul whilst i was there)
i swear im just a big kid at heart as i got pretty excited by the Disney store (i mean its not like ive never been in one before haha), i think this may have been down to the Disney castle in the middle of the room and especially the mickey mouse figurine coated in crystals and glitter, as well as having a photo opportunity with Donald duck ;) haha
next stop was of course Leicester square to see the novelty that is m&m world, i was pretty impressed how they managed to fill four floors with m&m inspired goodies, but there was no way i was purchasing anything,as £6 for a small pot of m&m's is slightly ridiculous in my opinion

as a special treat for receiving my award, mum, dad and Tim treated me to an evening watching the lion king, i have to say it is one of the best musicals i have ever seen, its so magical and the puppetry is amazing
and finally last but not least, a trip to London is not complete without a visit to Harrods, i was seriously in my element with all the yummy treats gorgeous handbags, beautiful clothes and cute animals, i will make it my mission one day to walk in and purchase a designer handbag!! until then i will quite happily walk around and lust after everything i see ;)
