200th Post celebrations

Posted on

Another milestone reached in my blogging ventures so I thought I would mark the occasion. When I reached my 100th post I decided to share my 10 favourite posts since I started blogging so I thought I would do something similar and share my 10 favourite posts since my 100th. Many of the posts have a lovely collection of photo’s to go with them.

  1. Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium I’m currently looking forward to the opening of this cafe which looks like it’s set for the beginning of next year. It is very exciting and I’m sure once I get to go I will let you all know what it’s like. I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be very popular.
  2. Consuelo Parra – Digital Art An artist that I discovered this year. Check out some of the pictures that I have included in this post.
  3. Ronan Keating Live This seems like ages ago, I can’t believe it was at the beginning of the year. How time flies!
  4. The Struggle One of the few Poems that I wrote this year along with ‘Defeated’ and ‘Don’t Judge Me’ which I’ve also included in this list. I’m hoping to compile some more poems for 2014 because I’m not that bad at writing them.
  5. Egg-Citing Art Lots of giant egg designs in Covent garden. There are so many photos.
  6. Defeated
  7. Don’t Judge Me 
  8. A Damp Day in Camden Town This is the only time I visited Camden this year. I hope to go again next year. It’s so hard to find the time to fit everything in. There are lots of places that I had hoped to visit this year but didn’t.
  9. Carrie Hope Fletcher Photos of Carrie performing at this years ‘West End Live’. She has become one of my favourite YouTubers.
  10. Garden Wildlife It’s surprising what you can find in your own back garden. See what you can find.

Carrie Hope Fletcher

Carrie Hope Fletcher, known for her YouTube video’s recently joined the Les Miserables cast as Eponine. This was a dream come true for the 20-year-old who played young eponine when she was 7 years old. Fans that hadn’t yet seen Carrie at the Queens Theatre had the opportunity to have a sneak peek yesterday at West End Live in Trafalgar Square. Her emotional performance of ‘On My Own’ blew everyone away.

The following video is of the complete Les Mis performance at West End Live filmed by my friend Emma.

Here’s a collection of Photos I took of Carrie and the rest of the cast.

Carrie will continue to make video’s on her YouTube channel ItsWayPastMyBedtime throughout her years long contract in Les Mis.

My 2012 Highlights

Posted on

2012 has been yet another great year for me overall and I’m extremely grateful for that. I have had great fun with many good friends along the way. I have managed to do a little travelling with Spain and Barcelona being my main holiday this year which included lots of great excursions. Disneyland Paris was somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and it certainly made me feel like a kid again… everyone needs a little magic in their lives. My long weekend to Devon was a welcomed break from the norm and left me feeling refreshed.

I attended three fantastic conventions with this year being my first experience of conventions too. Bitten 3 weekend, the Entertainment Media show and the London Film and Comic con all had some brilliant guests. Other highlights included seeing Michael McIntyre at the o2, The Harry Potter studio tour and the amazing annual West End Live which I will no doubt be at again next year.

Obviously my brother’s wedding has to be one of the biggest highlights of this year. It was a lovely occasion and one that I will remember for a long time to come. Meeting the coolest couple on YouTube Charles and Ali Trippy at the Contiki meetup in London with my niece was exciting and I hope to meet more of the YouTubers that I watch next year. Seeing one of my favourite bands Evanescence was long-awaited and I’m pleased to say that I have actually finally seen them live.

I tried my hand at poetry and really enjoyed it so I plan to submit more poetry into any online magazines that will accept them and see where I get. I completely failed on my other blogs for reviews and art but I’ve decided to just add everything I do to this blog in the future. Oh, and that book I bought back in January is still unfinished… what am I like!

Storm Trooper Love and Westlife’s last gig

Posted on

I can honestly say I’m not a happy bunny right now as I sit here in bed nursing a sore throat and runny nose… the dreaded cold is back! I was doing so well with staying in good health but the vitamin C tablets weren’t going to save me this time 😦 so I’m going to make the most out of this situation and spend my spare time blogging.

I’ve had an extremely busy weekend attending another spectacular West End Live which I’m currently writing a review about. I’m now trying to work out how to find the time (and money) to see all the shows I haven’t seen; especially ‘Sweeney Todd’ before it closes. The In-between sounds like another interesting one. Unfortunately I didn’t get much of a chance to look around all of the tents but I was happy to meet a not so friendly ‘Storm Trooper’. The geek in me came out as soon as I clapped eyes on him at the ‘Forbidden Planet’ tent along with ‘Darth Vader’ who was a bit caught up in holding a member of the public captive. hopefully next year I’ll find the time to explore a little more.

Saturday night came the event all Westlife fan’s were dreading… their last ever concert at Croke Park (Dublin). Myself and friends Hayley and Emma eagerly obtained tickets to watch the live screening of it at the Odeon cinema, Covent Garden. I must say it was the most bizarre cinema experience that I have ever been a part of. Never have I danced, sang, clapped and whooped at a screen before. The whole cinema was on their feet getting involved. I suppose it was the second best thing to being there in person. It was clear to see that the lads were very emotional throughout the concert but they pulled off another great show and made every Westlife fan proud. Now all we have to do is await news of their solo careers 🙂

Something to look Forward to

Posted on

So it’s coming to the end of my first week back at work since getting back off holiday and I couldn’t be more excited for the weekend. It’s not over yet though! Tomorrow I have a two-hour trek to a conference to look forward to, (Can you detect a hint of sarcasm in that sentence?) but at least it gets me out of the work place for the day and they feed me 🙂

On a brighter note, West End Live have finally announced their 2012 line-up and schedule. Anyone that knows me, knows I love my musicals and this is an event I’ve been looking forward to since last years. For those of you who haven’t a clue what I am talking about, I shall explain. West End Live is an annual 2 day show-casing event where shows from the West End perform a selection of songs on a big stage in London’s Trafalgar Square for the general public. Whether they be old favourites or new and upcoming, this years performances come from every West End musical.
