New haircut & another book read

So this week has been pretty ace. It's been a little stressful at work but everything is better when it's the weekend.

On Friday I finished a book I've been reading for a few weeks now.

Life after life by Kate Atkinson. It took me a good 1/3 of the book before I even got into it.
I was very confused at the beginning. The book description read;

What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right?

During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath.
During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale.
What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to?
Life After Life follows Ursula Todd as she lives through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. With wit and compassion, Kate Atkinson finds warmth even in life's bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past. Here she is at her most profound and inventive, in a novel that celebrates the best and worst of ourselves.
Eventually I was absolutely captivated. The story began to add up and I couldn't put the book down. I was incredibly impressed with the writing style (I say this like author's aren't professionals but you know what I mean... it was an very complex writing structure.) It was a story that was both sad and beautiful.

So anyway, today saw me having a new haircut. It was the shortest cut I've had in about 10 years so I was a bit scared! I had Tony from Arthur Razor cut if off. He's a barber based in West London, both friend and client. We are currently re-designing his website which you can see live soon at He's cut Dan's hair for almost a year now and always done an amazing job. He's cut the likes of Colin Firth as well. Oooh la la.

See some snaps of my new look!

Nick Mulvey, Scala London

On Tuesday night, Dan and I went out to Scala in London to see Nick Mulvey live. Nick has been on the radio a lot lately and I heard him and instantly loved his voice and music. Luckily, there was still tickets to see him live so I snapped some up quick. They sold out later that day.

Dan and I went to dinner first and then went to the venue.

He was absolutely fantastic and his voice was impeccable. His guitar skills were incredible and had the entire venue absolutely quiet. There's no doubt that I'll be seeing this guy again at some point in the future when he's selling out arenas.

Afterwards, Nick did a meet a greet and I took a cheeky selfie with the guy. He was so chilled and relaxed and was happy to have a chat. A friend actually knew his tour manager and informed us we had a personalised, signed copy of his CD in the back. How nice :)

Great night.

Beyonce, 30 before 30, London

So on Thursday night last week my friend, Fran and I went to the Beyonce concert at the O2. 
Dan surpised me a few months ago saying that I should take a friend.

As many of you already know, I have a 30 before 30 list and seeing Beyonce was on there.
Of course, she was incredible and Les Twins were awesome. Jay-Z also made an appearance which was awesome and throughout the show, I couldn't sit down or stop dancing :)


The next day, I took Fran to Knightsbridge and we shopped in Harrods for a few hours. We decided that we definitely don't have £39K to buy an original Liechtenstein and since we started getting funny looks from staff, we decided to head to the furniture rooms.

We also spotted boxer Tyson Fury. But we were too embarrassed to ask for a picture.

After two full days and Daniel having gone home to see his family, I was left with this gorgeous fluff-bag waking me up on Saturday morning :)
