Like most people, I was shocked and appalled by what I saw people wearing to Parklife 2017. By people I mean grown men. Grown men wearing shorts with ghastly unshaven legs. Grown men walking topless through the street – practically naked – exposing their nipples for the world to see. What is becoming of young men, do they not know what attention they could attract by walking through the streets like this?
If you can’t tell by now, I’m being sarcastic.
There are two types of Timehop updates. The ones that make you hide in shame and quickly delete your history and the ones that remind you of the good times, which make you instantly tag your friends.
A year from today, what will ‘future you‘ think of your timehop? It sounds like a bit of a deep question, but with so much of our lives played out online these days it got me thinking! I recently received a Facebook ‘On This Day’ notification which unearthed pictures from a 2014 summer BBQ; a blast from the past considering that everyone in the photos has now actually moved away from Manchester.
There will be no Philocalist updates until June out of respect for the 22 beautiful souls lost in the Manchester MEN arena attack. Please take a moment to spare a thought, pray or donate to the families of those involved.
Stay safe and spend time with your loved ones.
Over the past month or so I’ve been beavering away on an art journal. After discovering Noor Unnahar and practically devouring every instagram update she makes, I’ve become a little obsessed! So it’s safe to say I was excited about attending a blogger event hosted by Viking last week. Described as an ‘artsy party’ craft extravaganza I signed up immediately!
So what went down?
There’s nothing like moving home to give you the illusion of a new start in life. Nothing has dramatically changed, I’m just resting my head in a new apartment.
But it feels so good.
