January 2015 London Trip

I had a week-long work trip to London two weeks ago, and Lucas tagged along so we could be tourists in our spare time. I feel like I should just go ahead and re-name this post "Jill and Lucas Eat and Drink All The Things in London" because it's true and we did. 
We stayed at the SoHo Hotel, which was so lovely and right in the thick of everything. Each room is uniquely decorated with fun patterns, and the rooms have huge windows that let a lot of natural light in (necessary to fight jet lag when you have to be at work at 9:00 am local time!). It was definitely one of those hotels that was tough to leave. What do you mean I don't get turn down service when I return home?!

Check out the view from the Google gym. They are too blessed in the UK.
My favorite area of London has to be Seven Dials in Covent Garden. It's filled with cute boutiques, shops, pubs, and restaurants. Our favorite Covent Garden spots were Hawksmoor for steak, Dishoom for the best Indian food I've ever had, and Cross Keys for pints. :) Some SoHo places that we loved were The Ape & Bird for pub food, Polpetto for tapas, TAP coffee for amazing lattes, and Cay Tre for great pho. Okayyy  done talking about food.
Just a few selfies of us drinking alcohol for good measure. :)
On our last day, we lucked into winning lottery tickets to see Book of Mormon in London's West End. It was the perfect way to end a fun trip. We miss you already, London!

I missed all these travel pics - SO cute! You look so chic. Almost as classy as the last pics of us in London, almost. Club GAY for the win!
