It’s funny how things happen. How an opportunity to go see an amazing one of a kind gig at a beautiful venue in your country’s capital just falls into your lap. I was barely aware of Iggy Pop’s Post Pop Depression tour and then all of a sudden I had landed myself a ticket to his show at Royal Albert Hall. Not only was I going to see a musical legend, no matter how leathery his stomach, Josh Homme had something to do with it and would be on that stage, doing what he does best (and oh my did he do it well).
I love a good book, I really do, I also love a good old cup of coffee. So why not combine the two? Southampton’s West Quay Waterstones has undergone a bit of a makeover in the last month or so, unveiling a new café on the lower level. So when Lex suggested I come along with her to see it all at their soft launch , I just couldn’t resist. Continue reading “Coffee, Books & Cake”

Seeing as I’m getting this blog going again at the age of 22, I thought I’d let you know one little fact for every year that I’ve been alive, so here goes…

Following the day of the amazing library we visited ‘The Eye’, a building holding a film exhibition, which we had in fact intended on going to the day before, we just couldn’t work out how to get there. This time however we managed to find the boat that shuttles to the Eye and back, of course we did get on the wrong one first which took us to some kind of industrial estate. We’ll just call that a little bit of sightseeing though right? Continue reading “Amsterdam pt. 2”
We all love a bit of a bargain, whether it’s getting something in the sale or finding a little second hand gem on the high street (or online thanks to the likes of Gumtree). Continue reading “Charity Shop Bargains”
So I treated myself to a selection of crystals a few months back and decided I wanted to be able to wear my Quartz point on a chain. I had seen various methods of doing so but using some wire seemed like the most easy and secure way for me to achieve my necklace. Continue reading “DIY Quartz Necklace”
