Out & About #3

Here’s another little round-up of the past couple of weeks; cannot believe we’re at the end of May now but its been an awesome month!

My Talented Girlies

My girlies are a lovely bunch and although work etc gets in the way sometimes, I always love a catch-up with them whether it be for a quick coffee, a shopping spree or a good ol’ fashioned girls night out.

Letitia aka Titch is one of my oldest friends whom I’ve known since the first year of secondary school. We got sat next together in Geography and both thought that either didn’t like each other but we were so painfully shy!

We’ve experienced the trials and tribulations of our awkward teenage years, celebrated our mile-stone birthdays together, (I’m three days older than Titch) holidays, road-trips etc, laughing and sometimes crying along the way.

Before some lunch last week, she asked me to help her out with her photography portfolio and although I’m the most awkward person in the world to snap (I’m usually pulling a stupid face!) the pics turned out quite lovely. I’ve gone for the chop again with my hair, always get bored quickly!

Letitia specialises in mainly family portraits but please check out her Facebook page- Metamorphosis PhotographyΒ for her full portfolio.

The too-pretty-to-eat cupcake was made by another of my very talented friends, Emma. We had a girls night in with six of us at the weekend, complete with a Chinese takeaway, wine, chocolate and putting the world to rights, of course! I’ve known Emma since Sixth Form (she’s also a day older than me!) and she’s one of the nicest people you could meet. I keep telling her that she should set up her own cupcake business, we’d all happily be her guinea pigs for her creations. Hint! Hint!Β 

The Canary Wharf Jog

Before my weekend of indulgence, I took part in the Canary Wharf Jog and ran 5k to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. The rain stayed off thankfully and I managed to complete it in 24.5mins! Really pleased coz it was within my 30 min target. Just want to say thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored me (Β£260 in total so far) and thank you to my boyfriend, brother and his girlfriend for coming down to watch me on the day.

It was such a brilliant atmosphere and it seeing everyone else in their red T-shirts spurred me on. It’s inspired me to keep up my training so that I can do a 10k and then hopefully by this time next year, half a marathon! Eeeek.

Don’t forget that you can still donate, if you wish, on my Just Giving page.

Arctic Monkeys

Amaaaaaaaaaaazing!!!!!!!

I think that sums it up! We headed to Finsbury Park for the first of their two shows on Friday and it was so worth the wait. Supported by Royal Blood, Miles Kane and Tame Impala, their hour and a half set included mostly material from AM but also classics like Brianstorm, I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor, Dancing Shoes and a solo acoustic version of A Certain Romance from Mr Alex Turner.

Slightly disappointed that they didn’t play Mardy Bum or When The Sun Goes Down but their back catalogue is so huge, they could have played a 3 hour set.

Another one to tick off my Gigs List along with Arcade Fire, who I’m seeing for the first time next month at Earls Court. Squeaaaaaaal!

I’ve also got a little review of the Arctic Monkeys gig in this week’s Sunday Mirror, don’t forget to grab yourself a copy m’kay?
