THE AFFORDABLE WAY TO EXPLORE LONDON AND NAIL FASHION WEEK

23/02/2017
I love London. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that exploring London is something I put very high up on my list of priorities (not quite as high as Harry Potter marathon days but very, very close). But the thing is, being a Londoner, and working in London means that any exploring for me is quick minutes here and there, running to and from places and stopping – more often than not, bang in front of people #mostannoyingpersoninexistence – for a quick iPhone snap before moving onto the next.

This, if I’m honest, is part of the reason I decided to do a little bit of LFW this season, because I always get to discover more of my favourite areas of London (plus there’s usually some kind of free burger/champagne kinda situation at a LFW suite somewhere #sorrynotsorry). The other reason that made me all “yes to LFW, exploring London, obsessing over clothes and burgers” was the chance to stay at hub by Premier Inn in Westminster, one of my favourite hotels, bang in the centre of all of the action, extremely affordable, very stylish and the perfect place to hide out/recuperate before and after shows/jaunts around London Town.
Whenever anyone asked me to describe the hotel or asked what it was like, my immediate answer was “techy”. I just absolutely loved how forward thinking this place was, from checking in on a screen when you enter (which honestly just cuts down so much time), to downloading the app and being able to control your lighting/heating/do not disturb signs/breakfast order (I know, how frickin insane is that?) from your phone, everything just felt… advanced. You also get complimentary tea and coffee all day which let me just tell you, was an absolute dream after pounding the freezing cold pavements all day. I actually remember sitting down in the lounge area (which is an instagram dream fyi) with a coffee, and physically saying out loud, “this is the life”. It’s the simple things guys, it’s the simple things [insert old granny/embarrassed emoji here]. The rooms are cosy and compact, they’re definitely not brimming with spare room but to be totally honest, I didn’t need it to be. There’s enough room to do everything you need it for. The bathroom’s lovely, brilliant shower and lots of what I like to call “getting ready space” [insert eye roll emoji here]. Overall, I just genuinely can’t recommend it enough, the perfect spot for a city break/LFW jaunt.

As I’ve done many, many seasons of LFW in the past, I decided to spend my weekend splitting my time between checking out a couple of shows, making full use of the LFW suites and taking the chance to be a tourist for a day and explore London a little further, and being based in hub by Premier Inn, Westminster, was an absolute dream for this. My first stop was Covent Garden, a 15 minute journey away from the hotel (can we get a Hell Yeah for the fact that I managed to have a lie in over fashion week?), and in all honesty, it just made such a difference to my weekend/stress levels knowing that I was so close by and I could just pop back to my base in no time at all if I needed a little break.

After a full on day in London, nothing beats falling back into a dreamy hotel bed. I watched Grey’s anatomy, I took a tea back to my room because I’m secretly 84 years old and I had one of the best nights sleep. Breakfast at hub is a ridiculously affordable £4 (FOUR FRICKIN QUID) for a buffet of pastries, porridge, yogurt, fruit, toast and chilling in the lounge with a coffee and array of carbs was just the best start to the very busy day of exploring London, ahead!

Apart from being extremely close to the LFW locations, hub, Westminster, is a babe’in 10 minute walk away from my favourite spot in London. Nothing says London (and cliche tourist goals) like Big Ben so taking a stroll in the early morning sunshine was an absolute dream (until I risked death for an Instagram shot and that wasn’t quite so dreamy). hub also has locations in Covent Garden, Tower bridge, Spitalfields, Goodge street and many more… they really are in the most key locations in London [insert hand clapping emoji’s here].

And that brings this post (and the manicness of LFW) to an end. I think you’ll probably get by now that I am obsessed with hub by Premier Inn Hotels. How techy they are, how ridiculously affordable they are, how insane the locations are… they’re just the perfect way to do London and London fashion week on a budget. Without compromising on comfort or style.

I’d love to know if you’ve checked out hub Hotels before? Where is your go to place to stay? I always love hearing your thoughts 🙂

As always, thanks so much for reading!

    • After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr OKOSO and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: OKOSOTEMPLE @ gmail . com
