Bestival!

So I'm back! Bestival was wonderful, full of (surprisingly!) good food, good music and lovely people. It was a real treat to meet the other bloggers, and the lovely Charlie and Simon who planned our trip and looked after us. I rarely get to go to any blogging events because I'm in N.Ireland and I can't afford to be constantly flying places, so I have to say kudos to Echo Falls for inviting me and making sure Ali and I got there were well looked after!

Bonus points go to Gemma from Fat Frocks who brought gas straighteners which saved my fringe, and Sarah of A Million Dresses who baked amazing banana and walnut bread which I devoured for my breakfast. AMAZING! After that, it was heading off to see First Aid Kit, Gallows, Warpaint, Emeli Sandé, The XX and Florence and the Machine, and do a good bit of hanging out in the live comedy tent which was a genius idea!

Thank you Echo Falls!

Now I've got a busy week coming up as Ali and I head to Vancouver and San Francisco on Saturday! Trying to be prepared and get packed early. Let's see if that actually happens...

Bestival shopping

Hello all! If you've been following my excited and manic tweets lately, you'll know that the lovely people at Echo Falls are sending me to Bestival! I decided to make a video for some crazy reason, most likely in a moment of insanity. So here it is. Hopefully it works, I'm setting it to schedule as it uploads so if youtube has messed it up or out synced it - I apologise! There is a hashtag to follow the bloggers at Bestival, #echofallsbestival :)

And yes, I really did buy a furby off ebay.



A month of Instagram: August 2012.

I know I haven't done one of these posts in months, but I thought I'd give it a go again! August was full of cake (as usual) and surrounding myself with friends (old and new) and family and love. And Mr Whiskerson. My username on Instagram is french4cupcake if you want to follow me.
