It’s finally here! The very last London post! It’s been almost seventeen years since I started this series, but I’m finally able to retire it, and stop bombarding you with extra-long posts full of overenthusiastic sentences.
I’m very sorry that this has taken so long.
Anyway, I thought I’d end my London series by showing you all the wonderful things I bought on my trip, because I spent way too much money and feel like I should at least justify it a little by using it for blog content. I really did buy a lot, so please don’t judge me for my ridiculousness.
Anyway, here goes…
First things first: this bag. I bought this in Harrod’s for £40 on the first day of our trip. Yes, that’s right, £40. £40 for this absolutely beautiful bag, which I now wear to work every single day. This was definitely the best purchase I made on my London trip and I love it so much!
This is the Pikachu toy set I bought from The Japan Centre. This was a mystery pack where you got one of eight Pikachu room sets, all of which looked incredibly cute. As you can probably tell, I got the bedroom one, which included the most adorable Pikachu slippers ever.
In hindsight, I probably didn’t need a Pikachu toy set, but when you’re getting swept away in the magic of everything, you can’t stop yourself buying all the cute things. Even though I have no idea what I’m actually going to do with this.
Snacks, which were collected from various different shops; in Camden and in China Town. There was such a wide variety of different snacks to buy in London, that I’m not surprised I came back with so many. My favourite out of these has to be the panda biscuits, which I loved so much that I’m actually going to try and order some more online.
These photos also feature some beanbag animals from the gift shop at London Zoo, which I have since realised I really didn’t need. I mean, what am I going to do with a beanbag turtle?
Cute cushion covers which I picked up in Camden, along with a gorgeous print (even though the apostrophe is missing, which I didn’t notice till after I got home). The woman running this stall was so lovely and even gave me a loyalty card in case I come back.
A Totoro shirt from Camden Market. I loved the style of this and thought it was incredibly cute!
Pokémon stickers, again from Camden Market. Because one day I’ll become the very best that no one ever was…
These comics and graphic novels were bought from Forbidden Planet, which was only a short walk from our hotel. We were lucky enough to pass Forbidden Planet on most days of the trip and, even though we have one in Leeds, I couldn’t resist treating myself to some of their sale items.
More comics/graphic novels! Except these are from the comic shop we found in Camden. I loved that they had individual issues bagged into sets, and spent ages looking through all the boxes to make sure I didn’t miss something good.
Harry Potter character postcards. I love the style of these and thought they’d be great for decorating my desk at work. I still haven’t remembered to take them to work yet, but hopefully I will someday!
Personalised M&M’s from M&M’s World. The first set have my mum and sister’s names on, and the second have really tiny photos of me and Andy on. These cost way more than anyone should ever pay for M&M’s. I got overexcited, okay?!
The butterbeer bowl and mug we got with our butterbeer treats at Harry Potter studios. Luckily, these are made of plastic, so there’s no chance of me accidentally smashing them.
And, finally, a Bulma Pop! vinyl, which was on sale at Forbidden Planet. Bulma’s one of my favourite Dragon Ball characters, so I was very happy to see her at such a low price.
So that’s it. The last of my London posts. As you can probably tell from how much I’ve gone on about it, I had the most amazing time and can’t wait to visit again.
I’d definitely recommend going to London if you ever get the chance. There’s so much to do and see that you could easily spend an entire month there without getting bored. I’ve been eight times now and there are still places I haven’t explored yet!
I hope you enjoyed reading about everything. Again, I’m sorry it took so long to get these written. They were a lot harder to write than I thought they would be and there were so many photos to sort through. I couldn’t believe we’d done so much.
Thanks for reading!
