I have had the craziest few weeks...I've done so much that all the days have sort of muddled in my head, leaving me incredibly confused as to what I am doing and what I've done and what day it is (seriously, I have no idea). Anyway, on Wednesday I met up with some of my favourite (and the coolest) blogging girls in Brick Lane. I met up with Ophelia, Hollie, Ibe and Rachel, and not only did they all look so amazing but they were all so lovely...we had such an amazing day and I can't wait to hang out again.
We obviously went to all our usual haunts, and got photographed for Rokit's blog (check out their website, it's been completely re-done and is really awesome now). We then strolled down to vintage basement (pictured above and below) and was just browsing when we bumped into Zachary Robinson from swim deep and his fiancée Esther! It was so surreal as I went to the band's album launch party the night before in rough trade, and so to see Zach twice in two days was so unlikely and just, well, perfect. He was so sweet and we had a little chat about the gig and took some photos, and he really didn't seem to mind our creepiness, which was a godsend as we were all kind of freaking out a bit.
We had a slight freak out after Zach left, and the shop owner asked me if I was ok because I may or may not have been trying to recover by lying on the floor. We then went and got bagels and ate them outside the tube station, before going to the east end thrift store in whitechapel. I got a £10 bag which I filled with loads of cute things, so expect to see them in future posts.
On a completely different note, I saw swim deep on Tuesday! Me and my friend Anushka got up at like 5.30am on Monday to get wristbands that let you in to the launch party, and on Tuesday evening we went down to rough trade to see them. We managed to bag a spot right at the side of the stage, and so had a fantastic time within touching distance of the band. They played a really good set and signed our records, and are just the nicest guys ever and you should totally buy their album (it's really trippy and summery and chilled out). Seeing Zach the day after just made it even better, and he seemed appreciative of my early morning mission to see them play.
So that's a little snippet of what I've been up to; I hope you are all having a fantastic summer and eating lots of ice cream ^_^
NOTE: I am away on holiday at the moment and might not have a reliable internet connection, so I will reply to all emails, comments etc when I get home.
