We drove back to London as the skies darkened with questionable pop music blaring and the conversation topics flitting effortlessly between world affairs, feminism and guilty crushes (oh, hai, Seth Rogen). As the lights of West London came into view I had that "honey, I'm home" feeling combined with the sort of exhaustion that only a super chilled out day with lots of laughs leaves you with. Even leaving your city for twelve hours is enough to make it (and you) feel as good as new again.
|I waited for my friends in Society Cafe after a twitter tip from Lucy. I grabbed an almond milk cappuccino for there and then and some paleo cookies for the road.|
|My friend R papped me "looking like a blogger" - I'm actually reading Divergent on my Kindle because teen fiction makes me feel young.|
|Exploring the city.|
|The Roman Baths - these are so well-preserved and are truly amazing. I love anything Roman-related and couldn't resist defying the signs and popping my hand into the green, steaming warm waters. I think I'd have fitted right in in the Roman Empire.|
|La Perla restaurant for lunch - I had the fried goats cheese and home-cured smoked salmon. The restaurant is like being in a cave, the perfect hide-out from the dismal weather.|
|The afternoon was spent at The Cross Bath. I'm not planning on hosting a hen do anytime soon but this would be the perfect location for one, it's totally private but open to the skies above. The naturally warm spa water is so relaxing and it's amazing being outside in a bikini in February. Well, it is until its time to get out.|
