Towards the end of last year I was contacted about attending LFW VIP. I jumped at the chance and booked flights and accom that very night.
Our epic journey began at 9 o clock Friday night. We headed down to shannon airport/park inn hotel.
We set up a wake up call for 4 o clock in the morning and got ready to head over to the airport! Im reppin my friends band Negativ Result tee.
I did a lil TEENY TINY bit of airport shopping! Only picked up a few makeup bits!
We got sorted through security daily quick and the airport was deathly quiet!
Swiftly enough, we were on the plane ready to take off!
Finally we landed and went straight to the underground train to take us to London Liverpool Street Station.
This is a shot Declan took of me once to got off the train!
We dropped our bags off at our London hotel which was situated in Aldgate. We instantly started roaming around London EXPLORING!
(GIANT EGG) 😛
My boyfriend & I are pretty big Dr.Who fans so we couldn’t miss this photo op!
After we explored a bit, we headed back to the hotel to get ready to go to somerset house! here is my outfit 🙂
We have arrived!!
Once we arrived we went straight to our VIP lounge to get some champagne and nibbles.
We picked up our LUXE laminates and tote bag which was filled with goodies!
Next up – TIME FOR SHOPPING!!

After a few hours of shopping, we headed back to the VIP lounge to get ready for the catwalk show!
right before the show started Kalee Hewitt (stylist to major celebrities, Music videos, tv presenter) gave a talk on the catwalk trends seen this year, they were:
Prints are basically going to be everywhere!!
We snapped a picture of all the paps too haha!
The host of the show was Angela Scanlon. Loved her attitude and she even squeezed in an outfit change!
Here are some catwalk shots…there are so many so il only post a couple!
We enjoyed the show so much! After the catwalk show we were able to go and view/shop the outfits!
I couldn’t resist from buying one of the iPhone cases below!! (Ps: The Textile Federation is my new fav brand!)
NEXT UP: The Isabella Blow Fashion Galore Exhibition. (Essentially McQueen dresses with Phillip Tracey Hats!!
unfortunately i couldn’t take any photos in there but it was incredible!! SO MANY COUTURE OUTFITS!!
AND tickets were only £8.00!!
My boyfriend Declan spoiled me by getting me the INCREDIBLE ‘Working Progress’ McQueen book.
(To be honest, from this point on..he bought everything haha. Im very lucky! <3 )
by now it was late in the evening and we were getting ready to head off! We have burned through money buying stuff!!
We headed back to the hotel, had a nice steak dinner and caught some ZZZZzzzzz.
Our flight home was 10:00 Sunday night, so we had the day to fit in as much of London as we could!
Outfit choice was comfy and casual! no makeup and bed hair! haha
We wanted to really explore London by walking around so we made sure we were comfortable for our adventure.
We found a ‘hop on-hop off’ bus and for £20 we could see EVERYTHING!
Parliament buildings! 🙂
Big Ben! 🙂
Towers Of London 🙂
Tower Bridge! 🙂
Sherlock Holmes Sitting Room!!
Sherlock Holmes House & Museum! 🙂
and then, it was time to head to catch a train and head to the airport!
and thats it!!
I had the best weekend over in London and I have already been in talks to return again in September! can’t believe how lucky I am, I am definitely going to plot out my days for the next time, I will have to see who I will bring as my +1!!
Here is what I bought:
