This past week has been super busy and full of treats so let me share a little bit of what I’ve been up to! As I mentioned previously, last week my sister and I popped down to London for Incubus’s one off gig at Brixton Academy. It was awesome. There are some bands you remember because you grew up listening to them and for me, Incubus has been the soundtrack through my school, college and university years. Oh and of course, the inspiration behind the name of the blog and yes, they did play Drive (swoon).
I still can’t believe I’ve seen them in such a small venue as I’ve only ever seen them in huge arena tours and at festivals, so for my sister and I, it was a pretty special experience! To make things even better my sister and I went to the Ladurée in Harrods for breakfast in the morning. Probably the best kind of breakfast ever! Though, I prefer their Covent Garden location which is super adorable in it’s pastel decor.
We popped by the Japan Centre to stock up on sushi treats for the journey home and we bought this kawaii Totoro character bread (if you’ve not seen the anime, it’s highly recommended!) It’s filled with sweet custard and to be honest, anything vaguely Totoro shaped is always a winner.
We also bought some macarons to take home with us. To be honest, the Hello Kitty themed gift box was one of the main reasons we bought some. The box is now filled with my little sister’s jewellery.
At the weekend, I joined in on a vintage tea party for my friend who is getting married next month. I definitely need to give my friend Connie a shout for providing the awesome vintage china and Fletchers Bar in Kings Heath for being so lovely.
It was definitely a low key kind of hen do as not everyone appreciates the typical Hen parties. Part of the day included various challenges around the city (check out the awesome Octopus graffiti art!) including one of which involved me popping on a mustache…
Funnily enough, the tash is definitely one accessory that won’t be making it’s way into my life…
