1. My childhood was a lie After watching Wicked the Musical last week (finally after desperately wanting to for about 4 years) I realised that The Wizard of Oz is a horrible misconception of life and evil and the Wicked witch in the film was never actually Wicked at all.
Coming to terms with the fact that my whole childhood has been based on a lie has been hard **tears stream down face** . On the plus side I was in a really good seat and got to see everything up close.
The actual story itself is very creative and clever. The main performances by Emma Hatton and Savannah Stevenson were amazing. Their singing is another level of impressive!
A festival dedicated to Tequila? Now that’s likely to be a messy one.

1. You should avoid Getting holi gulal powder in your eyes. Although I had an unbelievable day at the Holi Festival of Colours on Saturday, I realised I made the mistake many holi colours virgins do, I never came prepared. The idea of the festival and its uniqueness is definitely not one to be missed, The Nervo ladies finished the night with a bang and the atmosphere was incredible.
1. I only eat ‘posh’ fish I have a hatred for fish. From a young age I just couldnt seem to stand the stuff, like literally can’t sit next to people eating it (especially really fishy fish like mackerel or tuna). It isn’t so much the taste but the smell of it really puts me off! I went to Buddha Bar in Knightsbridge this week and the food menu didn’t look to appealing to me. The majority of the list was fish, so I left it to the others to order and expected to stay hungry. To my surprise the food was actually amazing! I had tuna for the first time. I usually want to heave every time I smell it. However this was sliced tuna, it looked like ham and had no smell to it so was bearable for me.
It’s very rare that London hosts anything for free these days, let alone a festival, so when I got wind of the Chingford Weekender, held every year by Waltham Forest Council, it was just something that had to be added to my calendar.
