Places : London a 3 Day Guide and a Vlog

Day 1


8:00 - Drugstore Beauty shopping
stop at Boots (Bond Street) and Superdrug (Marble Arch). My Must Haves are the Bourjois Healthy mix serum Foundation, the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and the Soap & Glory One Hack of a Blot powder.

9:30 - Breakfast at Bill's 
There are quite a few Bill's all over London we went for the one closest to our hostel at Kensington High street station.

11:00 - National Gallery (Leicester Square Station)
the entrance is free and there are free guided tours as well (11:30; 2:30) and the audio guide is only 3.50. There are so many amazing paintings you would need ages to properly look at all of them. I stayed till my hangriness became unbearable.

15:00 - Strolling through Covent Garden (Covent Garden or Leicester Square Station)
There are so many cute cafes and concept stores to discover as well as all the standard high street stores just without the usual Oxford Circus craziness.

Apparently I's supposed to be the best fish'n'chips in town. I can'T really say anything about that since I haven't really tried a whole lot of them, but the food was definitely delish and the location super cute with a real retro vibe.

20:00 - Concert at The Courtyard (Old Street Station)
We went so see Max Jury play but his Support was just as amazing as the main act: Samuel Ford - got to check this out!

Don't be repulsed by a long queue, there is no entrance fee and you won't have to wait long things go quickly here! Once your in be careful not to stumble over the dozens of school kids.

For both the entry is free and they're always worth a look also the Photographers gallery has a really nice cafe and shop.
