London with my family (6th to the 9th of July 2014)


Hey Everyone My name is Jannah Gray and I'm a typical teenager from Northern Ireland. I previously had a blog filled with beauty reviews and 'tags' but that got really boring after a while. So.. what is my blog going to be about you ask? you can all judge for yourselves but my blog is going to be filled with adventure, fashion and fun. A basic bundle of my life. I hope you enjoy everything I post on my blog and if not.. you don't have to read/look at it. simple.

Today, I am going to show you and annotate some pictures from the time I went to London, England with my family. I had never been to London before so this was an amazing experience to embark on. I know I'm doing this post alot later then expected but hey.. its better late then never right?

I am not going to include pictures of my family in this post because I'm not sure if they would feel 100% comfortable with that, plus I rather show off my side of my experience to London in my blog as I want to show everyone my opinion and feelings towards everything I am talking about?? if that makes sense lol.

My London experience started on the 6th of July 2014 when I woke up extremely early at 4.00am with hardly any sleep that night because I was so excited. My Nannie was picking me, my auntie and my cousin Danielle up at 5am so we could get to the airport, get security out of the way and onto the plane for 6.30 am. We then landed in London around 9am and we were all starving so we started pigging out on some Marks and Spencer's sandwiches on the train while getting dirty looked by some elderly people.

IVE ARRIVED LONDON.

After checking into out hotel room we wanted to explore our surroundings and get to know the area we were staying in abit better. All I could think about was 'SHOPPING' so we attempted to get the tube to Covent Garden. Now.. throughout the whole trip to London, the one thing i hated was the tubes, they gave me serious anxiety and made me extremely panicky, especially the vertical escalators.. carrying your luggage and trying to get on them is just living hell to me. But after all that, seeing the stores in Convent Garden made it all worth while.

HEAVEN
After a little bit of retail therapy and looking around that area we were booked in for dinner at Jamie Oliver's Italian Restaurant, it took us a while to find the actual location of it but when we found it the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly. Even thinking about the food now makes me drool.




                                                
So my first day/night in London was a great experience and it lived up to all the hype. The next day was the 7th of July 2014 and that was the day we were going to see Phantom of the Opera and I couldn't wait as I hadn't seen it before and I had always wanted to witness it live before my eyes. It also gave me a great excuse to get all dressed up.

There was a man shouting 'NO PHOTOS' but I got a sneaky one.
The voices, the story and the overall experience of Phantom of the Opera is something I will never get again and I am so blessed to have shared it was my family members and if you are thinking of seeing a show in London I would 10/10 recommend this one.

The next day was another retail therapy day but I was very excited as I was going to Ma'dam Tussauds and that is a must-have attraction that you need to see if you are going to London. Before we went to Ma'dam Tussauds we went to Oxford and Regent Street and I'm pretty sure all my money went to the Oxford Street Topshop, I love it so much because there are little stalls were you can buy cupcakes and drinks (I bought them of course) I finally tried my first bubble tea and it was gross haha I was so disappointed. Another thing that disappointed me was the M&M store, it was so hyped up but it was awful. I'd only recommend there if you want tacky t-shirts with the M&M print over it.

Me and my family did so much and seen so much when we went over to London and it is so hard to fit all of it in just the one blog post like I spent some amazing quality time with my Nannie on a boat ride along the Thymes and I also went to Hamley's and seen all the amazing toys. But on the last day of my London trip I seen Buckingham Palace, The London Eye and Parliament which was great to see as you only really get to see these things on television. 

Alot dirtier then what I expected???



Overall, London was one of the best experiences in my life and I'm so grateful to all my family to share this experience with, especially my Nannie as she defiantly needed this experience from the hard two years she has had. I love London.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. If you would like to see more from me, please comment and let me know on this or my twitter/ instagram at _jannah97. But yeah I'll see you next time. Bye.
