We Are Fstvl!

Me and Amber love a road trip, and this weekend we took on the journey from Nottingham to Essex which is long enough as it is without the RIDICULOUSNESS that ensued! 

We were heading to Upminster for the Saturday instalment of We Are Festival, trying to be clever and avoiding the blocked up M1, we somehow managed to get onto the A1 which was all well and good because we were still sort of en-route. Four hours of driving later and we were in jam-packed London so decided to abandon my car and hop on a train.

A few detours later and we finally made it into the festival grounds at 3pm! We were still in good spirits but then we saw the queue...the queue that took an HOUR to stand in...in the torrential rain! So we actually ended up getting through the gates at about 4pm, not the original plan. 

Despite all this, we still had a good time and Sam Divine's set made it all worth it! We also went to the after party at Studio 338 in Greenwich which was amazing, so not all bad. Looking forward to not doing anything this weekend though I must say. 

Sunglasses, socks and crop top all BooHoo.

Barcelona: Instagrammed.

After Easter weekend and three days back at work, I enjoyed another long weekend- but this time in Barcelona! One of our friends has been teaching out there for just over a year, so we decided to pay him a visit and take in the sights of the city. (By that I mean mostly we got drank, slept in and ate really, really good food.) Everyone I've spoken to who's been to Barcelona has nothing but good things to say about it, it really is the city with everything and I'd love to go back. The ice cream kiosks around the harbour have really long queues, but trust me...they're worth the wait (still regretting that one scoop instead of two). And for unreal brunch to set you up for the day you need to head to Milk or Marmalade (http://www.milkbarcelona.com/) you will not regret it. Barcelona..we love you!
