We started off in Leicester Square with a visit to M&M World London. I have been to all their other stores. One in Orlando, one in New York and one in Las Vegas, this is their first European store. It is massive, although not their biggest store, but still spread across four floors.
My main intention for the visit was to buy some of their flavoured M&M's in particular the coconut flavour, they are delish. Unfortunately they didn't have any flavours available, well apart for the standard chocolate and nut flavours so I didn't buy anything but did enjoy wandering around snapping away with my camera.
There were so many different colours available.
They looked lovely all lined up in colour order. (Can M&M's look lovely? Yeah alright then)
I really liked this fella.
And these were brilliant.
After M&M World and before heading off to Buckingham Palace we went to Ed's Diner for dinner. The food was great, I will definitely be going there again. I loved the atmosphere and the way the place was decorated, I felt as though I was in a scene from Grease.
It has been years since I have been to Buckingham Palace. I think the last time was just after Princes Diana died, we went to lay some flowers amongst the thousands already there. It is a lovely building, and we could see that the Queen was home as the flag was flying high (not very clear in the photo though, sorry).
It was right about then that the doubt started to set in, had we actually got this right? OK had I got this right? There weren't very many people around and there didn't appear to be any equipment for projecting any images. James checked it on his phone and his look told me that I had in fact got it wrong :s It was the previous weekend, so we had missed it by a whole week.
I was a bit gutted to of missed it, especially as we had been traipsing around in the cold and wet all evening, but at least it had got us out. It isn't very often we go out of an evening, unless we go out for dinner or to a pub that is. Lots of photos were taken and it was good quality time alone together, we just have to take the positives from it tee hee whoops.
Honestly though my failure and the weather aside we did have a good evening and that is the important thing right?! It also gave us both a chance to get lots of shots on Instagram but more about that another time.
