LFW DAY 1 & My Travelodge Stay

LEMON DRESS: Car boot sale, £1
SHOES: Dr Martens, £50 (with discount)
BELT: Charity shop, 30p
BAG: c/o My Luxury Taste
HAT: c/o Miss Selfridge

First off let me apologise for the bad quality photos - stupidly I forgot to take ANY blog worthy shots in this outfit so iPhone quality will have to do! I started London Fashion Week day 1 bright and early, waking up in my lovely hotel room kindly provided by Travelodge. I had a couple of events the night before, so thought it made sense to stay on Thursday night so I could get a good nights sleep. I stayed in Waterloo so it was just a 10/15 minute walk across the river to Somerset House - perfect! I had a very busy day ahead of me, first off I had to head to the New Look Refuel Room to film some footage with them for their LFW campaign.

The day before I was invited to the New Look flagship store on Oxford Street to choose an outfit (you can imagine how excited I was!) which we we then styled up, had our make-up, nails and eyelashes done, all in preparation for our first day of London Fashion Week. The Refuel Room was amazing - everything a blogger needs to keep chilled (and full of smoothies, champagne and food) during our hectic few days. Here's the outcome - i'm being my cringey self as always!

My hotel room was lovely, all I needed and ideal for a germ freak like me - it was SO clean. All the beds were brand new, crazily comfy and so crisp clean - so I was a very happy girl. After my night out I had a lovely hot shower, made a coffee and chilled out watching TV. That's all you need really - so i'd definitely recommend Travelodge if you're on a budget like me! :)

As for the rest of the day, somehow I didn't manage to attend many shows at all as I got so sidetracked attending blogger events. The Handpicked Media suite provided us with FAR too many goodies (I literally had about 5 bags full) which I couldn't be bothered to carry round Somerset House, so we ended up chilling in the New Look Refuel Room for the rest of the day, before popping to The Apartment - an AMAZING multi million pound apartment overlooking Covent Garden piazza - purely for bloggers to just chill! I was invited as a guest of Motel but there were lots of other brands showcasing their stuff there - Birchbox, Opening Ceremony, Claire's, Pinterest, RewardStyle and more.  Motel were showing off their fab vintage collection where bloggers could customise a piece to keep & also post styling tips on the cutest little tags! I then headed back to the hotel with Becca for a romantic dinner of McDonalds, haha. So classy.

Feast your eyes on this, it's just my dream house!
