"Nobody can be whatever they want to be. No kid can do whatever they want to do. It’s a total lie. But they have the right to try and do whatever they want to do. That’s their right, to aim to do whatever they want to do"

Wilderness Festival Highlights In Brief

Wilderness Festival Highlights In Brief

I’ve done a full writeup that will be going on the REN Skincare guest blog but for now I just wanted my own round up of the Wilderness weekend (and reminisce since it’s one week on already)…

  • Before being able to get stuck in we first had to tackle The Great Tent Challenge. Turns out it’s not always as simple as you may assume to put up a new tent in imperfect ground.
  • Our first talk of the weekend…

Prom 22: War Horse Prom 03/08/14

I’ve always wanted to go promming but having lived previously on the Isle of Wight and in York I was never really close enough for going to be very convenient. But now I only live about 40 minutes away and I rallied my friend Natasha to accompany me to the War Horse Prom on Sunday afternoon.

We queued from about 1.15 and were just near the top of the steps but were told there was a reduced…

Flavour of the Month Playlist

Flavour of the Month Playlist

Songs take our fancy old and new… these are the earworms that I can’t get enough of right now. I’ve been listening to Frankie Valli on repeat for about two months now but these songs have made an impact on my odd break from the 50’s masters…

1. George Ezra – Budapest

One of my best friends insisted I listen to this song and I’ve barely been able to stop since. It is just charming.

Mark and Hannah - wedding readings and music

Mark and Hannah – wedding readings and music

Firstly, HUGE congratulations to my big brother and his beautiful new wife Hannah on starting their married life together.

I was very touched to be asked to do a reading at the ceremony and decided to try and write something so it was slightly more personal… in the end it was very last minute so I wasn’t happy enough to read it in front of people but I don’t mind sharing it here:

BST Hyde Park - McBusted day

BST Summertime Hyde Park - McBusted Day

After seeing McBusted at the O2 arena in April, I just couldn’t resist seeing them again so I rounded up two of my best people and set off into Hyde Park for the BST gig on Sunday July 6.

We arrived just before 2.30 and headed straight for the main stage to check out Diversity. I’ve never seen anything quite like them live before and they were good and fun to watch but they didn’t seem to use as…

London Life

Until this week, it had been two months since I’d posted on this blog. Outrageous!

Lots has happened since then and I’m going to do a quick life update and possibly a reverie on how much I now love London.

In April, teaching finished for my MA Journalism and I had a few exams and big essay deadlines so I missed a couple of sunny weekends. But everything was a 2:1 or above and I managed to do lots…

West End Live - Trafalgar Square - 22/06/14

Enticed by free West End calibre theatre, I went down to Trafalgar Square for a wonderfully sunny couple of hours on Sunday and it did not disappoint.

First up at 12pm was the cast of Stomp, who performed a couple of very rhythmic and infectious pieces. It was perfect for an event like this but I’m still not totally convinced by it as a whole show.

“I am in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed, and that one day all of our labors will be returned to dust, and I know that the sun will swallow the only earth we’ve ever had, but I’m in love with you.”
