 London in Golden Light

Incase you hadn’t noticed, some big sporting event is taking over our tellies at the moment. At first, I didn’t really care hugely for this daily life-intruding event even though it would be celebrating loudly under my nose in own my home town. Luckily, my French cousin Lorene rode over on the Eurostar and shook me by shoulders just in time for the opening ceremony, pronouncing that we were to absorb olympic spirit to the full!

Now I can’t get enough; I check London2012.com every day for event listings and watch competitions live at BBCsport on my laptop whilst frantically packaging copies of Wish magazine to beautiful young ladies around the world. And I’ve been dressing like this. Come on now, I’ve got to make the most of it! All this sport chic is my kind of thing so it’s going to be coming out this week!

Lorene has now gone back home but she was here to set me off the starting  blocks properly. We spent most evenings in Hyde Park at BT London Live, a free 2 week event that feels like a little festival. The perfect (and pretty peaceful) place to meet friends, have a beer (albeit an expensive one) and choose between 4 huge screens or live music to watch. We caught the rather dashing Will Young perform on the first night and soon forgot about all the food we had to throw away at the entrance when he stripped off to his scanty panties!

Take a look at my last post for an account of the Olympic match that I went to watch! Also, do pop along to The Book Club’s very sweet outdoor bar Basecamp in east London – it’s the perfect place to have a bit of British sporty fun and the interior of TBC has a fantastic creative make over partly made by my friend too – check it out!

P.s – Wish Magazine is now back on sale – quick, grab yourself one before they’re gone! Wish is my collaborative new magazine for girls around the world with lots of beautiful design, articles and shoots. You’ll love it!

  3. Got my issue of Wish the other day – forgot to tell you!
    I’m heading into town today (i.e. “Super Saturday”, probably not the wisest decision) to watch the Games on Potters Fields, by Tower Bridge. So very, very excited! Hoping the sun will put his hat on at some point though, I’d rather not be soggy xx

    • Yaaayy! Glad it arrived safely!
      Have fun, I’m sure it being busy will be a good thing, it wasn’t quite buzzing enough when I went – get those golds! x
