PSA: Friends Don't Let Friends...

Picture the scene.

It's your Christmas work party and you stress and stress to your plus one that this is a very upmarket venue. Luckily you both look absolutely gorgeous and with some of your other workmates head into town.

You meet your manager there and everyone has a good time; there's plenty of alcohol, shots and no one has managed to make an idiot of themselves! Okay okay the food was bad and you couldn't help but laugh when a balloon landed on your boss' head but other than that it's been great!

Several drinks and shots later you're pretty drunk. Everyone decides to go to a different bar and you agree to go! So you go to leave but then you hear it.

...Oppan Gangnam Style.

(Link just in case you managed to never hear this...)

Obviously it's like, a crime against humanity itself to not do the infamous dance.

So you do.

In high heels.

Big high heels.

And you fall.

The bruises were a lot worse than this okay! My leg went purple from them!

Oh, I mean you.

The outcome? Horrifically bruised legs and a bleeding elbow. Not a great look.

Friends don't let friends Gangnam Style.

MCM Expo

Hello darlings!

It's been too long since I last wrote to you, hasn't it? I'm glad to be back!

Please note that my blog url is now! I bit the metaphorical bullet!

Today's post will be documenting MCM London Expo back in October. It was a complete blast; cold but a blast! I had so much fun seeing and hanging out with everyone again and I couldn't have gone with nicer people

I travelled down wearing this:

...You can't see most of the outfit though.

Hair bow: Miss Selfridge
Jumper: Lipsy
Skirt: E-Bay
Jewellery: Miss Selfridge
Tights: E-bay
Coat: ASOS

The bag was custom made for me! It was inspired by my Inori cosplay and the bag was made by Scruffy Little Cat who completely out does herself with everything I receive from her. The bags I've had from her have been nothing but amazing and I'm constantly complimented on them.

By the time we got to London we were so hungry and tired! It takes three hours by train, plus another thirty to forty minutes by taxi. We met with some friends and got our wristbands for the event and then went... drinking haha.

The next day we were tired ugh.

But look at this I bought!

It's marshmallows covered in chocolate with white chocolate on top. You could also get Belgian Waffles or strawberries. I've never tasted anything so sweet in my life.

That day I cosplayed Ty Lee from Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was fun and cold and I felt so exposed with my tummy on show!

That evening I wore the biggiest, baggiest clothes I could find. Granted, they made me look fat but they were so warm so it was okay haha. We went for food at the hotel restaurant which was delicious and then went drinking. Again.

A lot of the younger Expo crowd (teenagers, etc.) appeared to be out that night and a lot of stuff happened that I really shouldn't repeat here! I was so shocked (and disgusted) at what I had seen even though everyone was truly lovely.

The next day I cosplayed as Ange from Umineko no Naku Koro Ni but I look really tired on all of the photos and I'm too lazy to photoshop them, wah ha ha~ I did buy something though. An absolutely ginormous, huge, unbelievably big...


Look at how cute she is! She was so expensive but worth it! I've called her Dolly and I sleep with her in my bed (even though she takes up half of the room, wtf silly alpaca!!)

That night we went drinking... again.

No photo of my outfit because I look fat but oh well!

I was sitting pulling these faces at my camera waiting for people to get back from the bar and some guy tried hitting on me... maybe he likes girls with wonky fringes and stupid faces, yes?

The next day we went home. No photos because I was extremely sick (not hangover! Actual swollen tonsils!) and I was dying.

Overall it was brilliant! There were lots of people carrying boomboxes around with Gangnam Style on repeat. I love Gangnam Style as much as the next person but talk about overkill...
