Everything Blogfest from the programme, to the Twitter feed scrolling above the panellists heads on the day to the free copy of Red magazine that was included in the goody bag!
Some entertaining, enlightening and thought-provoking panel discussions and ‘Think Bombs’ at Blogfest on Saturday. This was my very first blogging event and it was, on the whole, a very positive, enjoyable experience. People watching took on a whole new meaning too as the people I was watching were strange yet familiar at the same time. I guess this is a bit like going to a school reunion after a 25 year gap and seeing people who are both well known yet completely different…
On TV: Well I’m still on Strictly and The Apprentice but now I feel a bit sheepish after pinning my colours to the mast last week by singling out Aussie Mark as an Apprentice contender. He probably still is but I didn’t like the way he palmed the PM job off on Pamela this week and then came up with the rubbish suggestion of a ‘dating’ board game which, let’s face it, crashed and burned! I was also intrigued to see that the second series of The Fall has launched as I really enjoyed the first series with all it’s creepy undertones. At the time of writing I haven’t yet watched this so I hope there are no SPOILERS floating around!!
Andy C and Fiora – Heartbeat Loud – I’ve been listening to this on the radio on the way to work and its just one of those songs that makes you feel a bit lifted (I do love a bit of dance music though 🙂 )
I thought I’d jazz it up (in the most minor way possible) for Blogfest so I got some new nail colours for an autumnal version of my ‘Ice Truck Killer’ nails (if you’ve never seen Dexter then that will mean nothing to you…) I also made an interesting (if too late) discovery that wearing the old Spanx to a 10-hour long event (and dinner afterwards) was not the most sensible move – as Jude from Make me an Earth Mother pointed out, you might as well just be comfortable – who you trying to impress anyway??
Massive fail on the made front this week! I’m looking for inspiration for some home made christmas gift ideas though so if anyone has any that are simple and don’t require a glue gun then I’d love to know!
I just want to give thanks for the fact that things have calmed down a bit this week – I know it’s the calm before the Christmas storm, so I want to enjoy it while it lasts!
Happy weekend Little Loves!
