London With Nat

This weekend, I was lucky enough to guest DJ at HDIF. I went down with my bff Nat and we had a great weekend. First off, we went to see this bugger:


Yes! The Shard! But before ascending, we took a stroll through Borough Market where we consumed fine chocolates and enormous bratwurst hotdogs.


Burping, we finally got to the top of the Shard and I was wowed by the views.

I’m not great with heights so when I was looking down, I was freaking a bit and holding on to the handrails. Nat, of course, was fine and just giggling at me. But it is very, very high.

Post-Shard, we did Harrods, marvelling at very expensive strawberries before visiting this principality:

Atten-SHUN! #petkingdom #harrods

Then, after a slap-up dinner at the hotel (you get the idea that we were basically eating continuously, yes?), it was off to How Does It Feel To Be Loved? After a quiet start, we soon got it rocking.

After my set was done and we’d danced a bit, we walked back to the hotel along Oxford Street which is quite bustling at 2am on a Saturday night.

Work it, gurrl!

There were some rather… interesting characters along the way. 🙂

The next day, we hit Oxford Street in earnest and shopped and shopped and shopped. It was aces!

Back home last night after a great weekend full of music and food and great peeps and food and more food, I felt a touch emo. And hungry.

On Saturday, I DJed How Does It Feel? again and had a silly fun time. It was a bit empty at the start but I got the floor full by the time I handed over to HDIF supremo Ian which is always VICTORY for a DJ.

I managed to fit in a good few tunes fresh from 2013 as well as indiepop classics. After my set, Nat and I bopped around to Ian’s tunes next to some wildly inebriated patrons. Ahhh, lovely night!
