Notting Hill Carnival 2014

Sunday 24th and Monday 25th of August saw the annual Notting Hill Carnival descend upon the streets of west London. And unfortunately on Monday… did the rain. Nevertheless, I decided I might as well head out and see what went on.

I have to say that due to the rain doing the most, I did not enjoy myself as much as previous years however, that was in no part due to the actual carnival – it carried on as normal. Who says that a little rain should get in the way of a good party?

After arriving at Notting Hill Gate tube station at around 1:30pm, I could tell that the crowds would not be deterred by the weather – the carnival pretty much started on the tube platform. After heading out of the station and following the flow of people heading towards Portobello road and beyond, I realised that I must have missed most of the floats. However I managed to catch the general gist of this year’s event on film, and compiled the clips the give you a taste. Enjoy!


This Week’s Favourite….

Heyall, how’s it going?

This week I’ve been spending a lot of time at home (despite the beautiful weather in and around London), however, my days have not been wasted! During my hibernation, I have been discovering lots of different products/ books/ films/ videos and more, and so I have been inspired to start a ‘this week’s favourite’ post. As you may have guessed, i’ll be posting a weekly…well…post of a book, film,article, person, product, artist etc which has either inspired me, made me laugh, lifted my mood, or all of those things. I hope you will enjoy my little discoveries as well! Without further ado….

This week’s favourite is ‘Evelyn From The Internets‘ YouTube channel. I have been subscribed to her channel for some time, but her Vlog Everyday In April (VEDA) series is too funny not to share. Honestly, she will brighten your day. In addition to her hilarious stories and videos, she talks natural hair, and also makes vlogs. Once you have your first hit….it might be a challenge to get on with the rest of your day.
