Live. Laugh. Love. London

We are officially in countdown mode. I have my plane tickets. I have my passport. I have no idea where my suitcase is! I must start making a list of all that I will need for my week across the Pond. We will be busy. They will be working us to death exhaustion I imagine as we have so much wonderful stuff to cover. I really can hardly contain myself. There's so much to do before I go and I must rest up now because when I land I will hit the ground RUNNING! 

I'm such a woos  wuss! I need my beauty sleep. I'm already stressing about jet lag and not being able to keep up with the rest of the crew. What if I fall asleep on my feet, in the midst of some terribly important presentation by one of the fabulous sponsors... or what if I fall asleep while on the loo and they all finish up and take off without me? Or even worse, what if I'm so tired I'll have to pass up all the wonderful cocktails planned for the end of each day? Seriously people. This is huge. Ginormous. Muy importante. At the end of the day I will definitely need a good bed to lay my tired head. So I decided to check out my UK digs... my cooler than cool crib across the ocean... The CitizenM Hotel in London. Whoa, it looks so very chic, artsy and ultra cool... 

CitizenM is "A collection of innovative concepts, citizenM is a hotel driven by one desire: to create affordable luxury for the people. By "the people," we mean a smart new breed of international traveler, the type who crosses continents the way others cross streets. This includes the weekenders, the suits, fashion baggers and affair havers. The explorers, adventurers and dreamers. Those who travel the world with big hearts and wide eyes. Those who are independent, yet united by a love of the five continents. Those in search of business, shopping or art. In short, everyone who is a mobile citizen of the world. Most likely, that also means you."

And surely, they had me in mind when they wrote this:

 Let me give you a little sneak peak at where I will be living during my week in London...

Very hip
(I hate to go on and on and bore you since you won't be with me.
Though I am happy to sneak you in my suitcase. Virgin Airlines allows for 50 lbs per bag. Anything over you will be responsible for. But I'm pretty sure it'll cost less than a ticket...)

This allows me to stay in touch with my kiddos
And to keep you all up to date on my comings and goings....

Look at that!
And wayyyyyy better than sliced bread!
(I never got that expression. Is sliced bread really that good?!)
Check out the panel of outlets.
There's like one for every country.
I can charge my laptop.
And there's even on for my iPhone and iPad!
This is beyond magnificent I tell you!

And look at the photo next to it.
It's a bed. A bed!!
Where I will lie collapse onto at the end of the day!
Look at those pillows!
Don't they look fluffy and thick and wonderful?
I can barely wait to crawl  jump in!
And that little teddy.
That adorable little teddy. Or maybe it's a mouse...
Is that for me too?

More pillows...some lamps, a comfy chair... the tablet and a telephone...
Suddenly I am no longer sleepy.
Oh, hello, room service?!
Please send me up a bottle of Veuve Cliquot s'il vous plait!
And some Walker's Crisps... How I have missed those... prawn flavored!
And some Smarties and Minstrels too please...
Oh I mustn't... I will get fat. So skip it all.
I'll stick with the Veuve...
Oh you're right, I will need a snack.
The prawn flavored crisps will accompany the bubbly perfectly.
(Shouting Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee while jumping on the bed!)
Oh, I am so very sorry sir. Did I make too much noise?
I am having such a hard time containing myself!

It's a very artsy hotel. Did I tell you that?
Look at the lamps. Aren't they div-iiiiiiiiine? So much fun!
Is that a New York licence plate in the background I see?
(Do you think they will notice if I swap it out for one from Connecticut?)

I almost got so excited I nearly peed in my pants. The upper picture. I thought it was c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e!

But it's soap. Soap with very cool packaging. N'est ce pas?

Have I mentioned how artistically hip and cool this place is?

I must warn you. I have a habit. When I travel. 
Soap disappears faster than chocolate.
Yes, I shower. A LOT.
(Just don't look in my suitcase!)

I am so looking forward to my stay at CitizenM, which also happens to be
a BlogTour London 2013 Sponsor
For more sponsors and more on the other smart, good looking and successful people accompanying me, have a visit on Modenus' website! And don't worry, I will be back to talk about them all too! (I did say that Modenus is sending me, didn't I?)
