As a part of my Birthday celebrations I spent all of this weekend in London. Heading up on Thursday afternoon I enjoyed wine and films with my old housemates at our flat. I was lucky enough to be made this delicious breakfast the next day as I don't mix very well with white wine. After heading to Dalston to hang out with some other friends I headed to Kings Cross with my friend Joanna to a bar/club called Drink Shop Dance.
These pictures really do not do it justice but it is the cutest place in the world. The decor was amazing and this was just the downstairs area. The Drink Shop Dance nights are held at Drink Shop & Do a little shop and cafe which has events such as vintage hair and make up tutorials and afternoon tea. If you live in London or are visiting I urge you to check it out, I absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back again soon.
After Drink Shop Dance I met up with the amazing Emily who I have known from Twitter for as long as I can remember. It might sound very strange to have a friend from Twitter but we Facebook, email and text so it was a great opportunity to meet her while she was in London for the weekend. I ended my night in Joe's Camden which is a vintage style bar playing music of decades gone past. It was great to try another new place and sample something different.
Saturday I went to Field Day and has such an amazing day. Dancing to some of my favourite bands and discovering new ones too I had an absolute ball. I got to see Rosie, a friend from Uni, and an old friend from home too. Sadly the phone signal at Victoria Park stopped me from seeing other people I had planned to. Despite this I had the best time with my housemates and even found £10 on the floor. My favourite band of the day were Sleigh Bells by a mile, and despite getting into a fight with a boy during their set I also really enjoyed The Vaccines. Blood Orange, Franz Ferdinand, Beirut, Metronomy and Django Django also deserve a mention.
Sunday was started with a pint and a shot of Jager in the Hawley Arms with a friend who was down from Liverpool before I got rained on again trying to catch the Queen's boat show. Excuse how despicable I look in the picture above, this is me outside the pub my family used to own above Bethnal Green tube station. If you read the post below on the Jubilee you will know that I am really proud of my families background and quite patriotic too. After going to the pub I danced my night away at a house party just down the road. I spent yesterday watching the Queen's Jubilee concert which was great, I absolutely loved Prince Charles's speech.
I hope everybody had a wonderful Jubilee weekend, I certainly had an amazing time.
