Ahhhh, the humble red double-decker bus! Most of the time they're pretty much the bane of my life, I'm always missing them, catching the wrong one or being turfed off because they decide to terminate early. Last Saturday however, I ended up having a far more relaxing trip through London with the handy addition of cake. Afternoon tea on a bus is probably the only combination I haven't tried so far, so Lucy, Olivia, Dunya, Kim, Daisy and I got to try out the BB Bakery bus that takes you on a whistle-stop tour through the capital. It drives at a leisurely pace, handy since I was late and had to run after it, though not so great for the cars behind us! Luckily that was the only stressful bit of the day, we were soon laughing and catching up over some tasty sandwiches and mini quiches. I may still have some stashed in my fridge!

Another day, another pair of culottes. I was worried that I'd have to abandon them for the Winter as they seem to look a bit wrong with opaque tights. I do wonder how these hardcore 'fashion' types survive with their bare legs, give me a pair of M&S nudes any day. I also resurrected my Orla Kiely coat from earlier in the year, as per usual it's pretty special and fits really well. We ended up having the entire bottom deck to ourselves, perfect for any photography antics or when you get a bit peckish. They'd seriously thought of everything, teas and coffees were served in secure travel cups with lids and just when I'd thought it was all over, the scones came out!
Thanks to Livvo for the photo, look how bright we are!
Make sure you check out some more festive treats here. It's definitely something I would recommend to those visiting or even Londoners who want to see everything with fresh eyes, just make sure you're not late!
