Weekend out!

This past weekend was interesting. At first, I sort of had forgotten a friend was coming over (sorry Ouiza!), so when someone else reminded me (thanks Brian!), it sort of made my day. On Friday, I wanted to go to a gig of a friend of a friend, and a few people said they would join, but finally, nobody wanted to come or had made other plans, so I found myself alone. I decided not to go, because I didn’t want to be on my own, and I went “home” (Su’s place). Now I think I should have gone on my own anyway, because I’m pretty sure it would have been interesting and fun. Ah well, my loss. Hopefully next time I won’t care about others and just do my thing. Saturday was a bit busy. My visiting friend invited me to a birthday party, and I wasn’t sure whether to attend or not, but since it was in Shoreditch, and I never get to go out there, I decided to go. It’s not that …

Beware, the hipsters are coming!

I hate hangovers. You have a lot of fun when you’re out and about with your friends, drinking, and the next morning, it’s like a revenge on you for having too much fun. I had made plans with my friend Su a while back to meet on Saturday, and when the day arrived, we decided to go to this new trendy market in Lewisham, just by the shopping centre. The place was a bit hidden, and it looks nothing like a market, and more like an abandoned warehouse. At the entrance, there were a few security guys making sure nobody was there to cause trouble. There even was a Jared Leto lookalike! You can see him towards the right on the pic above (just by the Superstyle Hair Studio column), long hair and sunglasses… That’s totally him! Ha-ha Inside, the place looked like Shoreditch had just came to Lewisham for a visit! You may or may not know this, but I love Shoreditch. I know it’s now trendy to hate it and to be so …

Just keep running

Today it’s going to be one of those posts that if you follow me on social media, or know me personally, you will have heard/read most of what I’m about to write… Feel free to move along, unless you want to know more details and see some extra photos! *wink! As you know, I went to Madrid last weekend. I took Friday and Monday off, to have a couple of extra days available with my family, and to be able to rest. On Friday, I was flying at 12pm or so. I took my train to go to London Bridge and take another one there to Gatwick, and bumped into a friend from work. We started chatting and when our train arrived, we got on it… or so we thought! It turned out the train before was delayed, and we had hopped on to the wrong one! My friend realised when we were supposed to make a turn and we didn’t (I was completely oblivious until he pointed it out). I had had my doubts …

Sewing Kit DIY

Hi there! I’m ready to write a new post for the blog, oh yeah! Exactly a week after my last post. If you’ve been wondering what was taking me so long, flu has. It sort of melted my brain into a mix of… stuffy, disgusting bits. Anyway, here I am again, and I have a post for all of you. I’ve been working on this one for a while, if not on the text, at least on the images. They were all taken with my phone (S4) and then perfected (ha!) in Photoshop, mainly because I tend to get creative at night, so the lighting in all my quick phone pictures is usually bad. That’s how I seem to roll… This is something I saw on Pinterest. I think the first time I saw stuff like this was probably on one of the million photos and posts about doing things with Mason jars. For some reason, it seems I never pinned any of those, but pinned this one instead, which let’s be honest, it’s much …
