From The Archive: 2011

From starting university, to making the decision to leave (and winning my first blog award) - the year of 2011 was a big one for me- and I finally moved back to London to intern and dedicate a little more time to the blog...

Lifestyle Music

so you think you can tell, heaven from hell, blue skies from pain

(John Lennon Peace Monument, my fave gal pal, mini fudge cakes, Metronomy, Sunday breakfast, tea @ Leaf, Albert Dock, cheeky purchases)
So, I’ve made it through freshers, realising in fact, I am probably an old woman in a teenagers body (hot chocolate > everything), however I have had a nice time, despite having better days than others! My best friend Gemma came to visit me this weekend, and we had a bit of a mooch and got to know the town a little better, and two gigs and shopping trips later I think we pretty much exhausted ourselves (and my student budget).
On Friday we headed to one of the most gorgeous music venues I’ve ever ever been to, The Kazimier, to see Slow Club- who were amazing. One of those gigs, that despite not knowing all of the songs, made me go home, listen to them all, and want to see them again- amazing! I also met the lovely Jessica, totally proving what a small world this is! Following that, Saturday held trips to Liverpool One, dinner at Pizza Express with the new iddy fudge cakes and an absolutely cracking show from Metronomy, who were outstanding, I really cannot sing their praises enough. Additionally, today Gem & I headed to Bold Street Festival (following some kick ass pancakes) and had a lovely morning tea in Leaf with a browse around their vintage, which blew me away. After living in London, where a second hand t-shirt can cost up to £20, finding these Chelsea boots for a mere £20, and this bag for £10 made me very keen to visit again when my loan comes through (or maybe not mum! ;)…).
…and breathe!
I hope you’ve all had lovely weekends, thanks for the lovely blog comments regarding the Cosmo Awards and on my other posts! I’m so grateful to have such kind readers, and try to reply to as many comments as I can on here and Twitter, so thank you!
(Following the gigs this weekend, I’m going to trial a new feature on my blog tomorrow, so stay tuned and let me know what you think!)
