soft shock.



If you follow me on twitter, you may know that a few days ago I was on a little mission to surprise my boyfriend on tour.

Phase 1 was roping in his sister (who calls me Onion) so that I'd know when they'd be in Bristol.

Phase 2 was supposed to be getting in a van to Bristol with my friend Chris. Due to some complications, that couldn't happen, but Chris gave me his return train ticket and I ended up getting to his house before him! Had an interesting night watching him & his housemates try to get a sofa into their lounge, and laughing about what noises I think insects should make.





did a little video of my EXCITING journey... nice song though! modest mouse - so much beauty in dirt



The next day I wandered around people setting up stalls for the Harbour Festival and killed time at the shops.




There were these gorillas everywhere.. I'm not entirely sure why, but they were pretty cool! Also I saw this boat named after one of my favourite bloggers ;)








I played a game which involved going around Urban Outfitters picking up things I liked, and not looking at the prices. Turned out none of the things looked very good on, so it didn't really matter how much they were anyway!




The print on this shirt was pretty awesome though... Next I sat and had a big cup of tea for free (thanks to the Nero loyalty card) and read a bit of Bukowski, but it was so hard to concentrate!



(I wore Topshop jeans and shoes, charity shop tee and scarf, New Look sunglasses, and red nails)

I decided to wander up to where the band would be playing that evening, and there was a bar next door with doors that opened out, so the whole front of the bar basically disappeared apart from some iron railings. The perfect place to sit and wait for them!

I was so excited by this time that I just had to have a gin to calm myself down, and all promises of taking photos went out of the window. After a little while, I saw the van pull up and my heart nearly jumped out of my chest. I saw that Elliott was in the front seat, he glanced at me, looked away, then looked back and I saw him say "WHAT?!" - at which point I burst into fits of laughter in the bar on my own...

I ran out to meet them and was greated by lots of hugs and sarcasm, and had a really good night. We all stayed in Bath that night, and spent some time in the town, which was lovely! I've never really spent any time there and I want to go back. It's so pretty!

Anyway, my little mission was a success. Here's to more surprises :)

  1. So cute, Harbour Festival is always fun. And the Gorillas are something to do with Bristol Zoo... Similar to the Bath lions and pigs, did you ever see those? If not that won't make sense...

  18. Love your outfit! The gorillas are to celebrate 150 years of Bristol Zoo opening or something like that. Me and my friends went on a hunt all round Bristol trying to find them all - whilst drunk! Was fun to say the least! xxx
