FESTIVAL, HOLIDAY, BOOTS, BIRTHDAY, COMPETITION

I played Offset festival a couple of weeks ago, and spent the rest of the weekend watching some awesome bands.
Drummer BF got to meet his heros Future of the Left, and i got some pretty funny snaps of it. I have never seen him so giddy when we were watching their set from the backstage area.

Offset Festival

From Offset, we headed down pretty much as south as you can get in Great Britain, to Cornwall - ST IVES for a short break. I really cannot stress how scenic Cornwall is. I had never been before, and it is just the best place to relax!

We stayed in a little cottage on the harbour front, and that was our base from which we did so many fun things... including:

Hiking on cliffs, boat trips to seal island, crab fishing, Eating at Rick Steins Cafe in Padstow, seeing the fat tame seals every night in the harbour, talking philosophy in the pitch black at the end of the pier at night, eating tons of ice creams/seafood/yummy stuff, visiting the Cath Kidston shop, looking around the St Ives Museum at all of the old vintage collections, craft stalls...

I could get even more indulgent in this list but will refrain!

St Ives!


My dream boots came a couple of days ago.. after a legacy of internet searching!
Office had taken them off their website almost straight after i looked at them. So i emailed them, and they told me that there were literally only a couple of pairs left, linked me to a special page.. and WHAM!
My size! I couldn't believe it! My clown sized feet saved the day! It was one of the few times where i have been eternally grateful to have UK size 8 tootsies.
If fate exists, that was it.

So i have been strutting around in new boots ever since (my feet are suffering slightly - they aren't fully worn in yet - but it's so worth it). I shall share some outfit posts this week to show you just how much use these beauties are getting (and therefore how their use really does justify the money spent on them..;) )


I started my final year of Uni yesterday, and it looks really great this term. Strangely, i am only on campus one day a week, and this will leave me with a lot of time that requires much self-motivation! Oh no...
I have a lot of questions about what i am going to do after this degree. So many things play around in my mind daily... doing an Masters, becoming a teacher, starting a business, getting a full time job, taking a gap year... The sick thing is that i really need to decide very soon.. but these thoughts change so rapidly that i am worried i may choose wrong! Has anyone else ever had this kind of dilemma?


Another final note! - I turn 21 on the 3rd of October, and am organizing a themed party to celebrate my official adulthood! Most people i have contact with in blog world are so many thousands of miles away, but if anyone wants to come or finds themselves in Norwich that weekend, i extend the invitation to you!

BIRTHDAY INVITE

So, never to let anyone feel left out in celebrations, i have decided to host a birthday competition on my blog beginning this weekend! Details will be posted very soon :)

Tell me something fun!

Holidays

Ok, so i stupidly left no time to post a little something letting blog-world know that i am going on holiday from the 5th September.

It being the 10th of September i thought i would let you know (better late than never!) that today is my last day of holidaying.



So, me and my Mr spent Saturday at Offset Festival. I played early in the day, and we spent the rest of the day watching bands. A short 7 hour trip on Sunday and we were at our holiday destination... St Ives in Cornwall! Where we have been relaxing ever since!




On to my next train of thought... What fashion magazines do you read regularly (if any) ?



I have never been one to stick to one publication... and i only buy sporadically. So i really have a very shallow understanding of fashion mags in general.

I picked up Harpers Bazaar during the week... and quite enjoyed it (i also dont know if there is a differenence in issues between UK and US). I mean... the pages felt nicer than most... and their collages are really well put together but thats about as much as i can determine!

Am i embarrassingly misguided?

I need some help.. I almost subscribed.. but i thought i would put it to you knowledgable people before i commit to something that may actually be inferior!

What do you think is the best fashion magazine out there?

P.s. I'll be back online on Saturday to catch up on your beautiful blogs and reply to emails properly!

Upon reflection, i much prefer my hair darker.

Is there anything you can't stop thinking about at the moment?

BRODY

BRODY DALLE

My band mates went to Reading festival this weekend and got to meet Brody Dalle (of Distillers and more recently Spinerrette fame... plus she is married to the dreamboat that is Josh Homme).
Brody has probably been my idol since my pre-teen years.. she is a large part of the reason that i started to sing in bands. My hombres picked up an autograph for me.. (and managed to get their mugs in NME at the same time!)
It has got to be the best thing next to meeting her.

Who is your idol?
