Yesterday morning Emily and I went to a BodyPump class before meeting up with some of the other girls to hit up Notting Hill Carnival.
Helena had very kindly brought some glitter and butterflies to adorn our hair and faces to get into the Carnival spirit!
We’d packed some snacks and drinks (1litre of gin and tonic for Em and I!) so we wandered around listening to music, dancing and watching other people dance…
We splashed out and had some champagne…. Unfortunately, it feels less classy when you’re sitting on the side of the road next to a giant bin!
After Jo and Tom had eaten, we grabbed some more drinks before heading off to Gav’s, part of the Carnival that we had all enjoyed in previous years. The music was great, but it was packed. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get many pictures of the crowd or carnival atmosphere.
We had such day, I was quite glad to leave around 6ish though, rather than staying on into the night like previous years! We were so lucky with the weather, it was hot and sunny, rather than the pouring rain the day before!
I love the Carnival and have such a good time each year. Everyone is out to have a good time, and we end up seeing lots of friends from school and uni, plus some D list celebs!! Roll on next year!
