Back in 2011, I was feeling ridiculously adventurous and wildly free after another bad break-up with another complete asshole, so I spontaneously booked myself some plane tickets round the USA for three weeks (I’ve written a little about this in my reverse bucket list post). Part of my stay included a long weekend in New Orleans and I packed in some amazing things.
Last weekend, Rachael and I travelled up to London to check out Friends Fest! We’d had the tickets booked since March, so you can bet we were super excited. Well, I was, after a coffee and a Bagelman (sausage, mushroom and cheese!)
I get 4 buses a day on average to get to and from work, which works out at over 1,000 buses a year! Over the years, I’ve witnessed some pretty annoying bus behaviours, so I thought I’d share some of the ones that annoy me the most!!
I used to love cycling when I was younger but when I moved to the Isle of Wight at 13, I sold my bike because it was too hilly!! So every year since, I’ve been saying I want to buy a bike, so I can ride along the seafront to take in the summer beautiful views. Then every year I don’t end up buying a bike because I doubt I’d use it often enough to make it worthwhile.
Every month, Rachael and I make time to hang out with each other and try and do something different and fun. Among other things, we’ve been to the Foodie’s Festival, the True Crime Museum, bowling and to a spa (which Rachael wrote about here.)
But this month was one of the most exciting months so far because we only bloody went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London!! #HazzaP
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the soft launch of their lastest cocktail bar in Brighton. Located at the bottom of West Street and attached to PRYZM, it honestly feels a million miles away from the usual connotations of “just another West Street bar”. For those of you not from Brighton, think of that one street in your town where you never want to go down at night because it’s full of clubbers, people throwing up and girls dropping chips all over the floor while trying to pull their knickers out of their bums. Just sayin’.
We’re always talking about the things we’ve always wanted to do and all things we want to do but will probably never get round to. A reverse bucket list is about celebrating all the things that you’ve done already!
I love being a tourist in London, there’s always something new to go every time and there’s so much variety. I’m really lucky that I only live about an hour away by train so it’s easy to pop up and spend a day there. Plus the Tube will get you to any destination quickly!
Nestled in an unassuming part of Brighton Marina is the Malmaison, which has just undergone an incredible £5 million renovation! I went along to check it out with Charlie (from Modish Male) and some other lovely bloggers for cocktails, canapés and a sunset view.
