Southampton pride 2018

running for the 3rd time, getting bigger each year Southampton pride time has been an incredible day out. It had been yet another glorious summer day, the sun shining, heat blazing, the colours sparkles and queens were out to play at Southampton civic centre filled with thousands to celebrate LGBT pride. A-mazing!

I really do love the atmosphere at pride festivals no matter where you are in the country. It’s like the city has a major mood lift and It really is ‘fabulous darling!’ I noticed that the moment you got into town that everyone around had an energetic and positive warm attitude towards each other and I’ve probably said this before when writing about Brighton pride but it’s so true!

I do think that especially since the first Southampton pride the organisers have done an amazing job at growing the festival side of things. Watching the acts that were performing on the stage throughout the day were brilliant. I was gutted to of left before the cheeky girls hit the stage this year. But seeing the other acts were still as great!

I hope that in the years to come for Southampton that the parade itself is more concentrated on. I’m not at all saying that the parade was bad. But it definitely was missing something! Maybe just some music? But still great as it is.

Can’t wait for pride season again next year.

Things that are making me happy right now!

  • It’s summer right now. And it feels so hot!

This might be staying the obvious just a little bit right now but we have been really lucky with the sun making a visit to us the last few weeks. It’s amazing how much a little bit of vitamin D really makes the world seem a better place. The last few days have been slightly unbearable with the heat, BUT I am not moaning. The summer clothes are out and I’m loving it, iced coffees have also made a comeback and a new range of summer accessories! Whey.

 

• I have amazing friends and family, and one amazing girlfriend. Ok so I’m not the only one who has an amazing amazing abundance of people around them, and maybe I’m just bragging slightly. Over the last year my girl, my friends and my family have all been rocks to me. As the summer season is on us weekend vibes truly have a new meaning to me. Weekends are packed with family visiting and fun in the sun. What more could anyone ask for?

• Love island is so addictive.I am sooooo hooked on this years love island! Danni & Jack are so meant to be! That is all! Seriously! Me and Em have been so hooked! I’m finding it so hard not to tweet about it every 5 mins. • I’ve set myself goals to achieve this month. Ive always been a believer in goal setting and planning so this month I’ve started goal tracking and being even more planner obsessed then ever. I’m not gonna say a lot about this now! But watch this space! On a side note summer is the perfect time to start loosing weight as well. So being one of my goals! I can’t complain cause jacket potatoes and salads are totally my favourite. • The flowers! They’re beautiful. Without ever really realising. I’m such a nature freak. I love taking wildlife photos and photos of beautiful flowers. It’s the perfect time to do so. So I’m summer gosling myself to get as much photography in as humanly possible. For me anyway.

  • My last happy note for this month at least…

I’ve finally got on top and sorted my iphotos out. Which also means I’ve finally sorted my photos from Bristol zoo! Well. It’s only been a month hey! Here’s a few …
