Five Things – Week 30

Five Things I Did This Week

Unlike most weeks I actually did very little this week other than hang around my flat and watch Stranger Things with my friend. It was a nice chilled week and it was much needed as on Friday evening I drove to Chelmsford for V Festival. I hadn’t been to the festival since 2010/11 but it was a fun weekend of pop music and intermittent sunshine.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • Me and my friend just started watching Stranger Things after all the hype that has been around it and we’re pretty much hooked. It’s such an interesting story line and it’s shot so well.
  • I bought an airbed before going to V Festival. I have never had one for camping before but it was a spur of the moment thing and I am so glad I made the investment.
  • I got to see Little Mix this weekend and they really showed up a lot of acts over the weekend who struggled to both dance/ put on a performance and sing live *cough Bieber and Rihanna*. They were definitely one of my weekend highlights.
  • I managed to have a bit of a lazy week with plenty of evenings in relaxing (even if I was doing work at the same time) which included a nice lush filled bath and a sheet mask.
  • I finally re-arranged my ‘junk cupboard’ so that more can fit in there including my suitcases and my travelling rucksacks/ gear.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • The weather was a bit sucky at V Festival going from really hot to raining so I am convinced I have got a cold.
  • As I have been away for a bit my flat is a little bit of a mess so I need to do a bit of a hardcore clean next week to get everything back to tidy.
  • I realized I am probably going to miss State Champs opening main stage at Reading as I am not going to get there in time :( Pretty gutted as I love the band.
  • Lower Than Atlantis announced a hometown Watford show in a pub round the corner from me but it’s on an evening that I can’t go. I’d have loved to see them without having to travel into London.
  • One of my friends is having a little bit of a tough time at the moment but her work seem to be putting her under more pressure with dodgy shifts so I’ve not been able to see her for a week or two.

Five Things  To Do Next Week

  • Work out what I need for my weekend in Birmingham/ Reading Festival
  • Have a pamper evening with a face mask as my skin is really craving something more substantial than a sheet mask
  • Finish watching Jessica Jones. I only have about 3/4 episodes left so I need to get through these asap
  • Start watching Daredevil. Now Stranger Things is done me and my friend need something new to watch
  • Sort out my camera and all my gear ready for my first live music show in a while next weekend

    Oh nice, I would’ve liked to see Rihanna. Yesterday I went to a Jamaica day gathering at my local social club and London Wednesday but damn you show me up with all that you do!

  • Harriet @ Toby&Roo

    That pen is AMAZING! I love it – also, v jealous you got to see Little Mix!

  • I have always wanted to see Little Mix Live and yes I heard that Biebs and Rihanna were bad although ironically they are both good singers. Must have been all that drinking.

  • Adore Little Mix, saw them at the Summertime Ball and they stole the whole show! Sorry to hear about your friend being down, hopefully you’ll be able to see her soon! x

    Abi –

  • I loved stranger things! I cant believe there was only 8 episodes though! Ive read online that there will be a 2nd season which is great!

    • Yeah I read that it’s going to be a sequel to tie up a lot of lose ends, can’t wait x

  • Do you like Jessica jones? I watched it till episode 4 and nearly died from eyerolling, so I dropped it. I love Daredevil though, it is really gripping and Matt is quite handsome.

    • It took me a bit to get into it but when you get introduced to the baddie (Killgrave) it gets so much better and it’s worth hanging on for x

  • Laura

    I tried watching Stranger Things but I couldn’t get into it. Going to give it another go now 😀 xxx

  • My brother went to the V festival a few years ago and loved it. I would love to go too.

  • I hope you have an awesome weekend at the Birmingham/Reading Festival. I would love to go one year. xx

    Wow you got to see Little Mix you lucky thing I quite like their music 😉

  • Annie Brooks

    I love this! Always good to get our thoughts down. I always think a pamper day is best!

  • Kira L Curtis

    I only just found out about Stranger Things and I am determined to make my boyfriend watch it with me! You definitely need to watch Daredevil, it’s so good, I still need to watch season 2 before I can watch Jessica Jones, or vice versa 😀

  • Elanor

    Daredevil is fantastic! I’m not usually a fan of the comic book tv series, but this one is definitely worth the watch! :)

  • My husband and I binge watched Stranger Things over two evenings. LOVED IT!

  • Ickle Pickle

    Oooh I will look into Stranger Things, it sounds interesting. I am on my second airbed already this summer – the first one popped! Kaz x

  • I really want to watch Stranger Things, everyone keeps recommending it! Ah jealous you got to go to V Fest, although sounds like Bieber and Rihanna weren’t brilliant! I do love Little Mix though – I can imagine them putting on an amazing show! xo

  • Camilla

    My daughter would be so jealous of your trip to the V Festival but sadly she’s not old enough to go on her own and it’s not my cup of tea.

  • Stranger Things is great, isn’t it?? I binge watched it!

  • Bethany Naismith

    I’m so jealous that you got to go to V Festival! Unfortunately it’s just too far away from me

  • fashion-mommy

    I live very close to the Staffordshire V festival but was not impressed with the pop line up tbh.

  • Sounds like a busy schedule for next week :)
    Well done for clearing your “junk” cupboard!

  • I got hooked on that show as well! Already finished it haha. I think it’s really awesome. Enjoy!
