Photo diary #20 The things that no one else sees

Guess what? We've booked a trip to Las Vegas next month... aaahhhhh!!
I'm beyond excited as I have neer been to America before.
After a couple of days in Vegas we're planning on driving to LA, California and maybe San Diego too. I can't wait to blog about it, I've always wanted to do a little American roadtrip. And all with my best buddy :)
Being a women though, naturally I had a total melt down about my holiday wardrobe. Therefore Saturday meant FIVE HOURS in Selfridges...  fewf! We had to have wine breaks to de-stress from the chaos. I'm pretty sure Stefan wanted to kill me more than once.
I picked up a couple of really nice bits though (I have a super generous fiance, thank you!) from All Saints (possibly my most favourite shop ever) and Ted Baker. I don't really do outfit posts, I'm so awkward on camera, but I might do a couple of posts on them if you fancy it?

On Sunday, after a much needed morning coffee from the shiney new coffee maschine, we went to the usual breakfast haunt for pancakes and omelettes. It was super sunny by the time we finished, so we took a stroll around Clapham common and ended up in The Jam Tree garden sipping prosecco.

My afternoon consisted of  basking in the sunshine on our hammock (with more prosecco, the sun came out, don't judge me!) and swatting up on my driving skills.

Oh, I've got a couple of reviews lined up, lip products and my new favourite candle... lots going on before America :)

How did you spend this weekend? If you have an recommendations for good places or things to do in Vegas and America, do leave me a comment :)
