Ultra Europe 2015 was a PROPER all night rave

This time two weeks ago I was in Croatia at Ultra Europe which was fantastic, unfortunately it now seems like a distant memory now. Ultra Europe is the ‘little sister’ of the annual dance music festival, Ultra Music Festival which takes place in downtown Miami. A hugely popular festival which we were lucky enough to go…

DJ Yoda – Scratching and sniffing

Last month I saw Afrojack, this month I saw DJ Yoda. The venue was very different this time, a place called Belgrave Music Hall in Leeds, it reminded me of the South Bank in London if that’s possible! Only a few weeks ago I was sitting on the roof terrace on the South Bank, enjoying…

Seeing in another year at Arcade Club

Not a typical rave, but a PROPER party.  Last week it was my husband, Rik’s birthday, so he decided to celebrate it at Arcade Club. Earlier this year I visited Arcade Club for the first time, if I’m honest I wasn’t really sure what to expect, “will it be full of anti-social nerds, or spotty teenagers?” I…

Bringing computer games to life – Video Games Live 2014

I’ve played video games for quite a few years now, partly to take an interest in one of my husband’s hobbies, but also partly because I do actually enjoy them and can be quite good! Twice now we have been to E3, the computer games conference they hold annually in Los Angeles. Both times have…

Grey Goose is THE vodka – no questions

If you haven’t tried the premium vodka Grey Goose then it is definitely worth having a tipple. I’m definitely not promoting drinking in anyway, but this vodka has a certain class about it. During a stopover in Paris on the way to the US, we even came across a bottle they were selling (duty free) for…

Ibiza 2014 – Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat

As the title suggests that’s what we did for two days (or should I say nights) in Ibiza. It’s been 14 years since we last went to Ibiza and what a difference it has made.  We were staying in Playa d’en Bossa so you can forget the Club 18-30 mentality.  Don’t get me wrong, there’s…

TWO nights in a row

I turned 34 just over a week ago and celebrated it with an adult roller disco and two nights out on the trot. I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter how old you are, just enjoy going out and being with your friends. The first proper night of celebrations was a Friday night…

Oktoberfest 2013 – London

I’m not into beer on any level, but when a friend invited us to join him at Oktoberfest (London) this year we thought we’d take him up on the offer. We also took the opportunity to see my good friend and maid of honour from our wedding a couple of years ago. For someone who…

Creamfields 2013 was the BEST festival so far

Every August Bank Holiday I look forward to the annual dance music festival Creamfields, held on the fields near Daresbury, Cheshire in northwest England. This year was my sixth year at the festival, fifth in a row and the best so far. The gorgeous late summer weather had something to do with it, but of…
