I haven’t been around and blogging for the last week or so because I have been off to London for a night with Mr S and then onto a campervan trip to the Gower Peninsula in Wales with the girls. Finally the summer weather has arrived and I took the opportunity to wear my new Ruby Rocks dress to wander round Brick Lane on Sunday. I couldn’t resist having my picture taken in front of some of the amazing street art.
Ruby Rocks are a fantastic brand. The clothes colourful and fresh and are made in an ethical factory in Bali. I got this dress from Fashion Conscience which btw has a 15% discount on Ruby Rocks and lots of other ethical fashion brands including another favourite of mine SkunkFunk when you discount code SUPPORT until the end of June.
London was fantastic we spend all day wandering around Brick Lane and Spitalfields, stopping for lunch and a few cheeky beers along the way. Finally we stopped off by the Tower of London to sit by the river, enjoy the sunshine and watch the world go by.
In the evening we went to St Katherine’s Dock for dinner. I had been hoping to try out some Dim Sum at Ping Pong but it just wasn’t to be. After booking a table and then walking miles to get there (the nearest tube listed on the website was completely wrong!) we were told they were experiencing technical issues and so food would be delayed. We decided we were far too hungry to wait and ended up in Strada instead, shame as the Dim Sum looked delicious.
On Bank Holiday Monday, we checked out the V & A Museum, something I had been wanting to do for ages. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to queue for the Bowie exhibition but I enjoyed checking out the rest of the museum and lunch accompanied by yet more beautiful sunshine in the gardens before making our way home. I love London and hope I get the chance to visit again for fun rather than work soon!
Here are some of the photographs of the trip.

I hope that you have had a good week and have been enjoying the sunshine. What have you been up to?
