I got letter for my local dealership saying they would have the Olympic torch there and you could have picture taken with it
This is what i love about the MINI brand that there are always events or something going on surrounding the brand
It was quite heavy and it felt special in my hands
Its all fantastic earning money but something its best that you give back to the world
I decided to do a fun run for charity
I didn’t train at all for this 5K fun run so i wasn’t sure how it would go but it was all for Air Ambulance who i am proud supporter of.
I was all excited for the run and i want to see how far i could push myself
I managed to do the 5K fun run in 29 minutes which i was quite proud of
After recomposing myself my cousin who i call ‘The Doc’ (he really is a doctor) said for me to come down and spend a couple of days in London and he would show me all the sights.
I have been to London millions and squllions of times and i have always passed through or just visited specific places and drove back home i.e. So i haven’t done all the touristy stuff
With all my MINI Adventures the JCW was cleaned & fuelled and off i went to London
Then it was quick hop on to the Tube to reach the town centre to go to the famous Hamleys Toy store to pick some little pressies for little nephews 1st birthday.
I brought him this awesome Spider teddy
I cant believe how big it was with 5 floors FULL of toys
I am huge LEGO fan and picked up a few things for myself
Next up was London Dungeons which i was quite impressed with the actors who took you on the tour of the dungeons and gave an insight in to the torture and misery this happened.
An overall history London was given during this age about the plagues, great fire of London, Jack the Ripper and Mr Sweeney.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is planning to visit London as you get free access to Madame Tussauds as well if you buy the package deal.
You should never keep a lady waiting so it was straight to Madame Tussauds to mingle with the stars
Me and the Doc didnt mess around and went straight in for the punches with Mohammed Ali
Mohammed Ali’s is one of my favourite athlete for all time with his witty tongue and punch to match
I was surprised to she Jessica Ennis and Lewis Hamilton having wax works given they are relatively new to sporting greatness
It wouldn’t be right if i didn’t go the Bolt with the man himself
Still miss the King of Pop as i was going to see him at his return tour but he sadly passed away
If you ever hear ‘You Rock My World’ in my JCW it only means that i am on Top of the world
That was the just half of Madam Tussauds given there was the Marvel Comic section
Me and the Doc are comic nerds with him being a HUGE spiderman fan and me being a MOOOSSSHIIVEEEE Batman fan
Part of the Marvel section was 4D experience which was quite cool to be fair but slightly cheese. I guess it was more aimed for the kids but a good experience regardless.
Next up was Nom Nom Time and we went to Oscars for a Steak El Paso – Juicy steak, chargrilled and basted with spicy barbecue sauce, served with a cheese enchilada, Mexican rice and Mexican salad.
This was it, we were off to MINI STORE!!!!
I had heard about it and i was super excited to see it all and it didn’t disappoint!!
The MINI on the wall is an awesome sauce touch with the tyre marks going up the wall
MINI had clearly gone with a simple chic design with everything having its place with no clutter with glass cabinet for the small items
The back wall of the store is creative genius with mini accessories making up the UK flag
No other brand is as quirky as MINI and it always makes me smile. I am proud every time i hold my keys and say that i own a MINI.
The UK flag theme is pervilant within the store with alot of the items being laid out in the flag pattern or swinging 60s vibe with hearts and references
I love the MINI Pilot Luggage especially the black one with the white viper stripes
Its on my wishlist *hint hint*
There was the Uber cool JCW Roadster with its top down and spoiler up
I brought a few bits for myself
I loved the pouch it came in and strangely the tags it had on
I brought the beach towel for my next holiday in the sun – Red with white viper stripe
I also got the MINI wall clock in black with viper stripe
The Doc promise me for my next birthday he would get me the MINI racing helmet as he know i track my JCW and plan on getting my racing license soon…
I would recommend anyone without a shadow of a doubt to go down to have a look at the store even if you not a MINI fan.
The MINI store is located at Westfield Stratford City (Montfichet Road, E20 1EJ)
The people who worked there were super cool, friendly and quick to help you if wanted some advice on anything
Bonnets up to MINI with the store
