We Are Festival: Epic Sunday!

What a special bank holiday weekend.. And We Are Festival in Upminster on Sunday absolutely smashed it!

What at a great start to the festival season. I saw my all time love, Mr. Steve Angello, alongside many other house DJs that brought a whole day of music greatness.

The vibe was great, the day was hot, and I made lots of new and like minded festival going friends. Winning!

It’s a shame about the weather today, but I don’t really care as much now I’m back to work and sitting in an office ha.

Heres a few pics from my epic Sunday!

Kylie Jenner colour braids

Absolutely loving this look that Kylie Jenner rocked to Coachella on the weekend.

I daren’t say i would dye my hair all those colours, but it’s definitely gave me an idea for festival hair this summer… Chalk hair paint anyone?? 

I’m gonna grab these non-toxic ones I found, under a fiver too, winning! 

I can’t say I was a fan of the fashion attire though. Oh god that jacket.. Bit too oversized for me.

 
What were your thoughts on the outfit?

Affordable Fashion: Boky Lee Inspired

Stylish, artistic, clever. No unfortunately I’m not talking about myself. These are the words i’d use to define designer Boky Lees current ‘Mirage’ Collection.
This colourful jewellery range varies from brooch kits to high trend chokers.

  Each scaffolding inspired creation allows its wearer to customise the design using the pipes and interchangeable connection parts.

 

Boky Lee gold Bracelet

You can add your own creative flare, using a combination of colours to compliment many different outfits making these pieces both stylish and rewearable.

One of my personal favourites, the mien choker kit is an iconic statement piece. One that can be paired perfectly with a stylish athletic, colour clash style or add some edge to a plunge cut LWD for spring.

This quirky range is at the forefront of this seasons colour pop theme and items start at £178.

Unfortunately for us common folk, those sorts of prices are just not feesible. I have therefore scoured the online fashion world to find some Boky Lee inspired cheaper alternatives. There is always a way to be fashionable without breaking the bank right?

Colour tattoo chokers from etsy.com


You can’t customise these, but at 99p per piece you can buy the whole collection for under £10!

Check out this cute multicolour choker from Claires for just £5

This blue necklace if a similar shape is on £7.99 from New Look

For the same look but more comfortable wear, grab yourself one of these satin chokers from ebay. They come in 25 different colours!

This fab block bracelet from Amazon will turn any simple outfit into a striking ensemble.

Affordable but on trend fashion, now that’s what we love!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

Happy St. Paddy’s day my fellow Irish men and women! 

A day that commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. 

  
Did you know that Saint Patrick’s  day is celebrated in more countries than any other National day? Pretty cool huh, especially for such a small country.

   
I’m Irish of descent, yet i’ve still never managed to actually get myself to Ireland. Sorry excuse for a person I know.
Have no fear, I’m 100% heading to the green country this summer for a weekend. I’m just not sure where yet, any ideas? 
Anyway wherever you are, lets celebrate the heritage and culture of this beautiful country. A culture of friendly, family orientated people who love a good drink. (Me included). 
Grab yourself a Guinness, dress up in something green and cheers with a stranger.

You never know, you might just find your soulmate ha.

100th post: Happy Australia Day!

Welcome to my 100th blog post, and a celebratory one at that!

Happy Australia Day to all my Ozzie pals and fellow bloggers.

I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating. I’ll be heading to the ‘Booze Cruise’ bar in Nha Trang tonight for their big celebratory event. Let’s hope they’ve baked some Anzac biscuits! 

  Australia Day is the official National Day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip.

Koh Panghan: Christmas Full Moon Party

Thailands famous Full Moon party this month just happened to fall on Christmas Day. What a year to come travelling! 

    

It will go down in the book as a memory I’ll remember for years to come. I’ll probably even tell my grandkids about it one day, and I hope they will get to experience one too.
It lived up to all my expectations, those of which were very high. 

   
A long beach of thousands of party goers, a gleaming moon in the clear night sky, rows of stalls selling Thai buckets and UV hats and vest tops. UV face painting, night swimming, party music… Basically everything I love in life all in one place. One great big happy festival. 

  

  
   

  

  

   

  


 
  Down a random slide straight onto the sand (so dangerous but funny..they’d never allow it in England)

   

  

    

   

  

  

  

 We had a home time of around 6am, what a very merry Christmas it was.

Krabi: Aonang Beach Festival

This Friday and Saturday in Aonang, there’s been a great beach festival along the beachfront.   Food, music, culture and lots of stage performances, it appears we came at the right time!

I’m not 100% sure if there is a reason behind the festival, can anyone help?

  I am aware that all the hotels around the area set up different stalls to sell things each year, but it may have traditionalised from somewhere?

Regardless, the atmosphere over the past few days has been buzzing.

  I tried a ‘butterfly pea tea’, although I’d be lying if I said I’d enjoy the taste. I thought it was awful but glad I tried. 

On the other hand the Indian chicken kebabs were absolutely amazing! So much so that the stall sold out just after us. 

  
And I met some Geishas 😊

 Here’s a few more pics from the night. If you’re in Krabi this time next year I’d recommend it!
