48 Hours In London

I do enjoy a trip to London, usually they just consist of walking around Soho, Chinatown and Dover Street Market but my most recent trip I actually had plans! On Thursday I attended the Bellfield Clothing launch party where they were showcasing a new collection at Beach Blanket Babylon in Shoreditch. The new collection looks stellar with short sleeve shirts, denim jackets and so much more and I felt really at home with the DJs playing tracks from N*E*R*D and Jonwayne (something I don't usually hear outside of my own flat!) I asked India to be my plus 1 and her camera skills were on point as usual as our photos were spot on!

After an evening of good music, new clothes and free cider I had to get out of my Air BnB pretty early to head to the next Air BnB and get some rest before seeing one of my favourite bands of all time: The Maccabees. When I found out that they were making these their last shows I simply had to get a ticket. I was relatively late onto The Maccabees but after seeing them at Reading Festival in 2012, I was instantly a huge fan. I see Orlando Weeks as a massive source of fashion inspiration and the music he makes with the rest of the band is just incredible. 
Anyway, the show was amazing. They played pretty much all of my favourite hits including Young Lions, No Kind Words, Toothpaste Kisses, Grew Up At Midnight and so many more. It was a great finale from them and I'll forever be grateful to them for giving us such an immense discography. As much as I love London, I was very happy to head home on Saturday and get back to Cardiff. 
A very busy 48 hours  has definitely taken its toll on me, so I'm writing this post with a smoothie watching Catfish at my parent's house. Getting that balance! 

Thanks for reading, dudes.
