This weekend (& Monday) I spent working in London with the Merchandising team prepare one of the stores for the Spring Summer launch. If you guys don't know, I work as a Visual Merchandising Manager & so it is my job to make the store that I work in look pretty so it's appealing to you guys! I had so much fun working up in London that I thought I'd share a little bit of the adventure with you- apologise for the 'not so good' quality of the pictures I only had my iPhone & iPad with me!!
With the prospect of a two & a half hour commute into London on Sunday, work were kind enough to put me up in a hotel for two nights! Now I was expecting to stay somewhere like a Premier Inn & boy was I surprised when I saw this hotel!! I stayed in The Grange Fitzrovia Hotel which was super posh looking, complete with candeliers & Oxford Street only a stones throw away. The room was very nice complete with flat screen tv & sash windows *squeels!*, the bed was so comfortable I really didn't want to get out of it each morning!

Those little babies may have snuck into my bag to go home with me- FYI I did not pull a Ross!
All together it was such a good experience to be able to work with the merchandising team again as I love working in a different environment & travelling to different places. It allows me to see how other stores work, see whats sells for them & get new ideas that I can take back to my store.
Have you travelled anywhere different for work recently?
