"Life is like a rugby ball, you do not know which direction it will bounce next"
Hey beautiful, I hope you're good :)
I'm from Essex but I went to Twickenham for the Easter weekend where I stayed at Marriott Twickenham and took these hashtag Cold But Worth It pics! I beared the freezing UK weather and onlookers thought I was mucho loco (AWKS) but it was all worth it! *flicks hair and imitates L'Oreal "because you're worth it"*
The dress is from Motel Rocks - I just thought it was mega glam and knew I had to wear it with my Mac Russian Red lippayyy. It had sort of spagetti straps but I just tucked them in #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat LOL I'm joking, I was just going for a specific look but I'll wear it with the straps another day :) I got the nail polish from Avon about two years ago, it's somehow got an ombre effect with I adore!
I'm so last minute at uploading sometimes but I've literally JUST got round to regulating my bodily temperature in Essex haha! Besides, I'm definitely a quality over quantity chica, as you can see my posts are always super detailed, I do tend to talk a LITTLE bit too much sometimes though. Forgive me por favor?
So "where the deets at gurrrl?" I hear you ask. Well, as I said, I stayed over at London Marriott Hotel Twickenham over the easter weekend and guess what? London Marriott Hotel Twickenham is attached to Twickenham Stadium! At Twickenham Stadium, there is this AMAZING sculpture of rugby players and the one right on top is holding a rugby ball. So guess what I did, in the name of Easter I held an Easter Egg! Just one of my very random and spontaneous ideas. Who knew Easter Eggs and Rugby Balls could look so identical :)
I'm more of a footie girl myself to be honest (shhhh) but it was super fun to stay around this hotel and look at all the mantle pieces from UK Rugby, it is a place I'd suggest you visit if you ever want a change whether you're into sport or not, it's quite unique.
Silly me, only brought my 50mm lens and for those who know, it's basically permanently zoomed in (you can't zoom in or out - such a newbish way of explaining!) - it's what gives the gorgeous blurred background! But anyway, because of the dimensions of the lens, it's not ideal for shooting close-ups as you literally have to stand so far back. The Awkward Life of a 50mm'er. I should totally write a blog post, or a book! Anyway, have a gander at some pics of the hotel from Marriott:
|What other hotel enables you to have a view of the stadium from your room? Erm hello!|
Twickenham Stadium is where Chime For Change's "Sound Of Change" will be hosted. On June 1st, CHIME FOR CHANGE presents a global concert event to put girls' and women's issues on the world’s stage. Millions of people will join in THE SOUND OF CHANGE LIVE, to promote Education, Health and Justice for girls and women everywhere. If you know me, you'll know that issues as such are very close to my heart! So what are you waiting for? Order your tickets now, be quick though. Oh, am I not tempting you yet? I shall tell you whose performing.. ahhem.. Beyonce, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Lopez, HAIM, Ellie Goulding and many more! Did I say Madonna was presenting..? Did I say it was founded by Gucci? The face value of every ticket sold goes towards helping with a great cause so if you haven't done your bit this year, you knock where to click (here)! Also, if you need somewhere to stay, consider Marriott Twickenham which is attached to the stadium, talk about convenience :)
