If there's proof that time seems to be whizzing by super fast, its the fact it's been almost 2 weeks since my birthday. I'm now 23, and as usual I feel no older. There's no major turning point other than my age now relates to Blink 182's What's My Age Again (I definitely played up to that in Live Lounge last Wednesday night after a few Disaronno and Pepsi's).
After being forced to work on my birthday last year, I made a vow to myself that I would do something fun this year, so I made plans and headed off to London for a 2-night break. Sadly some original plans fell through (like my mum being poorly), so I took my nan to all of my fave places instead.
It's no secret that I'm obsessed with musicals, like ridiculously out-of-hand-obsessed, and at the very top of my absolute faves is Les Misérables, I mean who doesn't love songs about a 19th Century rebellion where nearly every character dies?
With my birthday being on a Sunday, I was unable to see Les Mis (due to it being a no performance day), so I headed to the Queen's Theatre on the Monday evening instead and cried my way through the show for the second time around. It was very emotional knowing that was the last time I would see those particular actors playing Fantine, Eponine, Cosette & Marius.
I still haven't shared my summer London trip with you all, but be prepared, it is definitely coming in the next couple of weeks because I have so much to tell you!
There were no other plans for the trip other than the show so we mostly ended up strolling Oxford Street and Regent Street, taking in the pretty Christmas lights and doing a spot of shopping, all whilst revelling in the festive spirit.
There's something so magical about London in December isn't there?
And when you have time to spare before heading home? Well, there's always room for a trip to the Theatre Cafe on Shaftesbury Ave.
I'm totally that person who takes pictures of cool bathrooms.
