London- Manchester week 7

This past week was a little hectic but I will do my best with this recap.

Thursday and Friday were pretty low key days just hanging out with Adam at his place.

Saturday and Sunday were super busy.
On Saturday I attended the Alternative Press Fair in Euston. This was my first adventure into the realm of zine selling. I was pretty damn pleased with the whole thing. If anything, looking at the work produced by the people around me gave me a kick in the ass (I should really bring things up a notch) and a hefty spoonful of motivation.

I was lucky enough to be sitting beside Joe Decie I think you should check out some of his work yes yes.

That night Matt Sheret and Anne were nice enough to invite us to join them and Liz Greenfield for food and drinks and general shenanigans.

On Sunday We Are Words + Pictures had a two event combo at the Notting Hill Arts Club. I lent a hand with whatever was needed- they’re such an awesome crew- the day was FANTASTIC! First Drop In + Draw to chat with some artists, perhaps hone some new skills etc followed by Modern Romance featuring Robin Ince and some sweet sweet dance tunes.

I was spoiled by Adam as we took leave for a tasty Italian meal to celebrate the ol’ V day. *blush*

Monday we lingered in London for a bit, adventuring to Green Park (my personal fave in the city) and grabbin’ a bite to eat before heading back to Manchester pretty damn exhausted.

Tuesday was a day of catch-up and some relaxin’- Wednesday Adam took me to Afflecks where I acquired a new nose ring hoop and we discovered a tasty chocolate place om nom. Also I should mention that Good Grief! is a neat little comic shop in there.

Yesterday was yet another relaxing day but it did involve the making of some delicious OMG fajitas. SO DELICIOUS. I will post photos of those bad boys next time.

Passed this wee shop on the way to the Press Fair… oh la la!
