Hello everyone! So this Saturday night I was lucky enough to attend the Opera, fancy pants I know! A family friend works at the Glyndebourne and managed to get my Mum & I two free tickets.

Our evening started early as the show started at 5.20pm so we got our gladrags on and made our way past Brighton to Lewis where the Opera house is located. We were greeted by Johnny the family friend & were given a backstage tour! Viewing rehearsal areas, lightning offices, props and of course the stage, it was a great preview of what was to come. We sipped on Pimm's in the luxurious garden surrounded by sheep, which were brilliant company making my Mum and me laugh! 

We then headed in for the first half of Don Giovanni, now I hadn't been to the Opera before this occasion and didn't know what to expect, I heard you either love it or you hate it and I absolutely loved it. Our view from the upper circle gave us a view of the whole theatre and allowed us to have a birds eye view of the show. 

At half time we were given an hour & a half to enjoy a picnic outside, this happens only during the summer at Glyndebourne during the festival months but this was a great opportunity to discuss the first half and get some fresh air. 

We then headed in for the second half. The Opera, Don Giovanni is a story of a lothario, a true brut who lies and deceits women who commits a terrible crime... And I wont give away the rest but it was truly one of the best experiences of my life! So if you ever get the chance say YES! 

I will definately be visiting again soon, have any of you guys been to the Opera? If so any suggestions?



So a few weeks back my boyfriend and I payed a visit to London Zoo for his birthday as a surprise present from me! We've always wanted to go but never gotten round to it so you can imagine how excited I was! A short walk from Camden town tube we found the Zoo in regents park a huge and beautiful location, we stopped for lunch before heading in and sat under the towering trees. 

Seeing all these exotic animals up close was amazing, as you can see there was everything to camels to kimono dragons but my favourite part has to be the butterfly sanctuary. Sadly I didn't get many photos in there as there was so much going on but you went through the area and were surrounded by hundreds of butterflies, all beautiful and bright. 

We went through the famous reptile house were scenes from Harry Potter were shot and spotted snakes, frogs and lizards. Another highlight was feeding time at the penguin sanctuary, diving and waddling penguins just make me laugh and it was a great way to finish off the day before heading back in to Camden for some food!

If you ever get the chance to go, GO! although its rather pricey there are offers and deals out there so what are you waiting for?! 



So Glastonbury... Need I say more? This festival was the best 4 days of my summer filled with rain, lots of drink & of course the best bands the world has to offer. 

Now I hadn't been to a camping festival before Glasto and I'll admit I was a little worried, the thought of baby wipes, mud and port-a-loos were all daunting but to my surprise I loved it. The late nights, wet clothes and brushing your teeth with cider are all part of the experience of a lifetime! 

We ended up in strange tents with rain dances and day of the dead rituals taking place, tombs with secret raves and clubs with a tube train hanging out of it. The legendary festival definitely delivered and that was only the Thursday night!

As the weekend went on we saw acts such as Crystal fighters, The kooks, Blondie, Ella Eyre, Lianne La Havas, Bombay Bicycle club, Dolly Parton and many more over the space of 3 days. It was truly one of the most amazing things I've done in my life and one to tick off the bucket list for sure!
