Hey lovelies, how’s it going? I’m so sorry I’ve been super quiet on social media recently. I’ve just started a new job and I get no signal in my building (unless I stand right in the corner looking like a twat!) The good news is that I absolutely love my job; it’s keeping me super busy so the days go really quickly!!
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!
In a previous bucket list post, I said that I was going to see Nickelback in concert. I’ve now seen Nickelback in concert, and hot damn, they were phenomenal.
If you didn’t know, seriously where have you been because I put it absolutely everywhere, I was shortlisted for the Social Media Hero Award at the recent Thirty Plus awards! I decided I was going to head up there for the ceremony, and who better to take with me for moral support and all the craic but fellow thirty plus blogger, Aine. Yeah. Her. Again.
When I went to the US in 2011, Pinkberry* was everywhere. So it was disappointing that the UK didn’t have any. Until now. They now have a UK flagship store in Islington, London and I went up to check them out on their opening day.
*side story* Before I even got there, I had a bit of a catastrophe. I was all for wearing my jeans until I stepped outside two hours before heading to the train station to find that it was boiling hot outside. I own the total of two pairs of shorts; one are massive and look hideous and the other are a lil bit too tight (they’re a size 8 and it turns out I am not.) So I hot-footed to Next, tried on ALL the shorts and picked up a pair I really liked. And two tops. I really like them so an OOTD might appear soon. When it’s stopped raining. Thanks England, you da best! Anyway…
Just over two weeks ago, the Blogosphere Magazine launched issue 9 and kept their cover star a secret until the big reveal. At a party. In London. Which I was invited to. Sitting on the train to London, I felt like the jammiest blogger that ever lived. Until I went to do a wee on the train and there was no toilet paper. Fume. Luckily I found a scrap in my bag. Phew.
After circumnavigating the tube and SoHo in a pair of vintage Clarks, not to be recommended FYI, I arrived at the venue and headed inside. Alone. Deep breath, you can do this Hols! You’re an adult. Apparently.
A couple of weeks ago, Aine (from Honestly Aine) and I were going to meet up for a coffee in Brighton; but then she said that Crownbrush were having a small event at the new Vanity X make-up academy and did I want to go that instead? So we hit London to check it out!
