The Top Ten Reasons I'll Be Watching The World Cup This Summer

I think most of us girls can agree that when it comes to football we're just not that interested.  Watching a ball being kicked around the grass for 90 minutes whilst screaming, swearing and jumping up and down like chimps is just not our idea of fun.  

However, I don't know about you but I get weirdly patriotic around the World Cup.  I always hold out so much hope for England to win even though in the last few we've done so badly!  This year though we seem to be doing pretty well.  6-1 today WHAAAATTT!!

Anyway, here are the main reasons I'll be tuning in this summer:

  1. After today's result, England may well be in with a chance of winning.  Gotta support my home boys.

  2. Christian Ronaldo in those shorts.

  3. I got Germany in my work sweepstake and they're always a good bet.

  4. Harry Kane is pretty easy on the eye.

  5. Watching Panama get all antsy is quite amusing, not to mention the 8 bookings and counting they've gotten so far.

  6. If England get through to the next stages and the game is during the day we get time off work!

  7. It's an excuse to get your boyfriend to take you for a pub lunch.

  8. It brings countries together because football is the language of the world and we need more of this.

  9. If England win your boyfriend/brother/boss/dad will be in a good mood so good time to ask them for that favour.

  10. It's a relatively cheap activity.  If you don't want to go out and spend money you can simply stay in and watch it on the BBC.
Will you be watching this year and who will you be supporting?

Lost and Found in Malta

Last month I visited the tiny island of Malta for the first time.  We were headed to the Lost and Found Festival by Annie Mac (one of my favourite DJs) for my boyfriend's birthday.

Day 1

Obviously I had to seek out the best ice cream on the island and in fact this place was voted best restaurant on the whole of the island.  It's called Sottozero Gelato and it was amazing.  Not only did it have a huge selection of flavours but half of them were vegan.  I tried the dark chocolate and the cookies and cream.

Day 2

The weather was a bit overcast this day and it looked like it might rain so we took solace at the local cinema and checked out the latest Avengers movie!  Oh and I found the coolest van so had to take advantage and have a quick little photo shoot ;)

Day 3

This is when the festival really kicked off and we took a coach out to a remote beach for a beach party that Annie Mac herself was playing at.  This was probably my favourite day, so much fun!  Later that evening we went to the main festival venue.  As Annie Mac is vegan she had a whole vegan menu which obviously I had to try out.  Although I have to say the burger was a little dry.

Day 4

This day was my boyfriend's actual birthday so we went for some yummy brunch at this cool place called Pash that had a great vegan selection.  Then we hit the pool for a bit and went to the main festival in the evening to see Diplo.

Day 5

We were all pretty hungover on our last day so we decided to just chill at the beach.  We went to this lovely beach called Golden Bay which is supposed to be one of the best beaches on the island.  It was so nice to relax after days of partying!

Do you have any festivals planned this year?

Best Outfits from Sex and The City

It has been 20 years since Sex and the City first aired.  To be fair I would have only been around 11 so I probably wasn't watching back then but as I went into my teens and early 20s SATC became my guilty pleasure and style bible.  I learnt so much from these sassy city girls living the American dream in New York and can relate to each one of them in different ways.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first episode I thought I would put together some of my favourite outfits from the show although I must say there are so many fab ensembles it is very hard to narrow it down to just 5!




Which one is your favourite?
