This year I have quite a few plans. First of all I am going to Portugal with my family for 10 days, then as soon as I get back I am moving to London for 3 weeks to work with Firefly media. I got work experience there through a lady I baby sat for!! Exciting, I will explain more about it when it comes to it. Then I have BOOMTOWN and am going to Malaga with my friends at the beginning of September. These are my main plans but also have a lot of little days out and festivals planned as well!
FAVOURITE SUMMER DRINK:
Pimms or Thatchers and Black, I normally drink wine but I feel like it is more for the Winter. Wine can be a bit thick especially when it is so warm outside.
MOST FUN SUMMER MEMORY:
Probably Glastonbury festival last year (2017), Glastonbury festival is the best place in the world and will always be the best part of the Summer. But it is not on this year 😦
FAVOURITE BBQ FOOD:
Big fat burger, I do love a hot dog as-well with onions cheese and lots of KETCHUP, yum!!
MY DREAM SUMMER DESTINATION:
I would love to go to Bali, it looks beautiful!! I want to do a big holiday next year with Solly because we are not going away together this year apart from our group holiday.
FAVOURITE SUMMER PLACE:
When it is warm I love just spending the Summer at the pub. Being sat outside while the sun goes down, perfect.
FAVOURITE SUMMER SENT:
Paddle boarding, kaiaking & my favourite Summer scent
IM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO:
At the moment I am really looking forward to BOOMTOWN!! Just 2 weeks left of work experience in London.
3 THINGS I LOVE MOST ABOUT THE SUMMER:
1.THE WEATHER (well its very hit and miss in England, haha!) 2. Spending time outside with friends and family. 3. Festival season!!!
If you have followed my blog for a while you would know that I make little videos of everything I do. I have had absolutely no motivation to make any at the moment but finally picked myself up and put together a ‘Beginning of the Summer’ video, more like a Spring 2018 video to be honest! These are all videos from January to May, including the BU Summer Ball, University fun, Love Saves the Day, a weekend in Bath, Bristol and a lot more.
Hopefully throughout the Summer I will be making a lot more, let me know if you like it!
SATURDAY 24TH FEBRUARY
On Saturday a huge group of us got a coach (I booked a mini bus but a coach turned up) to Shock Out, which is a big event that got put on at the Bath and West show ground. All I can describe it as was a mini festival, apart from the fact by the time it got to mid-night it was -4 degrees. We arrived to the event at about 9 and got picked up at 4:30AM when it begun to die down. The acts included J Hus, Darkzy, Shy FX, King of the Rollers, My Nu Leng, High Contrast and so many more. There were 4 different stages, all being the same size but I only stayed at one which was called The Blaze. I am a bit annoyed I did not search the grounds a bit more, but I was so happy in the exact same spot for 8/9 hours with everyone.

Shock out is a big organisation and this is the first year it has been put on. It is at the exact same place as WestFest which is a Halloween rave which takes place every year. I would definitely recommend this event as it reminds you of the festival season which is only in a few months.
I hope you enjoy this short post, I am sorry it is so full of photographs.
On Saturday I went to a day event at Motion called Sequences. We got there at around 2:00PM/3:00PM after getting the bus from home to Bristol. Thankfully we missed the rain when we arrived before it completely tipped it down at around 5:00PM for the rest of the day. At the event there were 3 different stages, The Blast, Bandulu and Critical. Chase and Status DJ and Flava D were the best acts although the whole day was amazing. We all stayed in Bristol at our friends Uni home, when the boys all went back out in Bristol but us girls took over the bed.
Top – Urban Outfitters
Trousers – BooHoo
On Saturday night I went to Godney Gathering with my best friends. If you have been following my blog for a while you will see that I went last year and had the best evening! This year was also great but was such a rush. I finished work at 6:00PM and went strate there, even though I was knackered, hungover and stank from the night before. Being the trooper that I am, I downed half a bottle of wine before I got there meaning I did feel a lot more relaxed.
If you didn’t know, Godney Gathering is a family festival which is taken place in Godney. This is near where I live. It is a small event where a couple of bands play, with festival food, clothes stoops and even a silent disco! It goes on all day and you can even camp, I really recommend it if you just wanted a nice day out with your friends or even your kids as it is extremely children friendly. The music turns off at midnight which is when the festival ends. From there, my friend Jess gave me a lift to another friends house where I met my boyfriend and went home. It was an earlier night than before but the next day was still a massive struggle.
I love you…
This Festival is Solly and I’s fourth Glastonbury spent together. Although the second one we were technically not together we still spent the whole time with each other. It is crazy to think how much we have changed but there is nobody I would enjoy this festival with more. He is the only person who stays out with me until the sunrises, the person who looks after me when I get into a state and probably the only person who doesn’t care how much I stink.
Glastonbury is not on until next year, so lets let the 718 day count down and to many more Summer adventures.
