I am so, so happy it's now sunny here in the UK!
This past weekend I volunteered through REM at Bristol's annual Harbourside Festival doing artist liaison for the Queen Square stage, assisting the lovely stage manager Jen and the programmer Tony Benjamin. Acts on the stage included The Craft, a supercool British hip hop and R'n'B group (to me, not unlike N Dubz in the way they had a female singer, and two male rappers/MCs, only 1000000 times better!!), Jassi Sidhu, a hugely energetic Bhangra group from Birmingham, the incredible Sheelanagig, a crazy Gypsy rock band, and the Black Roots and DJ Derek headlining. All of the acts were completely fantastic and definitely made me realise how much I love working with artists at live events!
This week I haven't been up to much - scoping out more possible volunteering opportunities, applying for jobs, and shopping with Mama Smith - I am now the proud owner of the most beautiful pair of Missoni sunglasses!
And a gorgeous new summery dress. I am somewhat frantically dieting now the sun has its little hat on - I am NOT shorts ready!!
