As I’m currently raising money for the boob-loving charity, CoppaFeel! I ventured to London, with some boob-baes to show our support and enjoy a day full of boobie banter, live music and glitter!
We had a great day listening to music from Pixie Lott and Fleur East (amongst others) as well as hearing some wonderful poets and hilarious comedians. It was a great day and it was filled with so much love and positivity.
Headed up by the boob queen Kris Hallenga and Fearne Cotton, the day paid tribute to the success of the charity and its many supporters.
I absolutely loved getting my glitter on and having a good old boogie to some of the best tunes I remember from my childhood. It isn’t every day you get to see Busted headline in such an intimate space. And it was boobin’ incredible!
I hadn’t met up with lots of the people from the Oman trek yet so it was a great opportunity to chat to them, have a dance and a couple of G&Ts!
House of Vans was an incredible venue and CoppaFeel! had received so much support that the festival seemed to have everything. From the live music to comedians, to boob booth and their very own Boobtown and Casa CoppaFeel! Artists were on hand to help with graffiti lessons for the vaults outside the venue, and skateboarders and other kinds of people on wheels were showing their moves. It was AMAZING!
And it all helped raise money for their wonderful charity!
Along with seeing lots of other fabulous people, including Ellie (the CoppaFeel Fundraising Queen), we also got to see Giovanna who will be leading my team on the trek across the desert.
It is so nice to have such a wonderful excuse to all come together on a Saturday to celebrate life and have fun sharing the boob love! (Covered in glitter!)
It made me even more excited for the trek, and having time away from my novel gave me several new ideas without thinking about it.
I will often find myself feeling guilty spending the day at an event/out and putting off writing, but I think it’s important to realise how valuable it can be. It’s first hand research.
I came away thinking that my protagonist would absolutely love the kind of music Busted and Pixie Lott sing, and it got me imagining how they would act at a festival. What a bonus!
