Canary Wharf and all that Jazz

On Saturday me and a couple of friends went down to Canary Wharf where they had a free Jazz Festival going on!

 

I decided to take this as an opportunity for me to do an Outfit of the day or #OOTD as its known, its all well and good putting an outfit together ask any of my friends I  get changed at least five times before I leave the house ( could be OCD ) but the thought of taking pictures/ having pictures taken of me makes me cringe to no end. I am the most awkward person when it comes to photographs, I have been ruining pictures since 1991 with this mug of mine.  Also looking back I probably should have tidied my room but this is the price that comes with deciding what to wear and you need to leave at 3 and its half 3 -_-

So here it goes, a few snaps of the outfit I wore to the Canary Wharf Jazz Festival :

Annnd back to the Jazz Festival…

It was such a good setting for a small gig, having a musical setting somewhere that people would usually associate with business fiance and work. It was kind of surreal to look up and realize where you actually are…

The first act we saw was not really my type of music but the last act was a Motown band and they were amazing with in seconds everyone was up dancing and singing along. As a young professional living in London it was nice to go to something that was a) Free b) Not just for the ‘edgy’ people.

I’m always on the look out for free music events so in the  future I can to post them on here before event and you guys are in the know about whats going on around London.

#Consproject

I was lucky enough to attend the Converse #Consproject in Peckham on Thursday, I invited my friend from oxford to come with me as I knew she would love the concept. The aim of the event was to celebrate the end of their workshops, parties, talks and exhibitions created to enthuse the minds of creatives in London.  I think the best way for you to get an idea of the event is to show you through pictures…

Once we finally got into the event ( The Q was huge) we headed straight to the bar standing in line is thirsty work! We each got a Rum and Coke and preceded to explore the venue.

The Bar was simply dressed with metal work, trainers and beer there was an inbuilt recording studio which was use for the music production workshops,  room dedicated to photography and images of all those that had been involved in the events, workshops and master classes.  Among these were some of Grimes* favorites Bashy, Kano and Dizzie Rascal.

Lets move on to the music! The music did not disappoint and we had the privilege of two stepping the night away whilst our ears were graced with the musical duo known as Mount Kimbie.

If you haven’t heard of them click here and have a little listen, once your done so you will understand how happy me and my friend were * cheesy grins all round*  as we love a good beat!

So there you have it a brief insight into our visit to the Cons-project Final Party!

*Grime is not garage
Grime is not jungle
Grime is not hip-hop and Grime is not ragga.
Grime is a mix between all of these with strong, hard hitting lyrics. It’s the inner city music scene of London.
And is also a lot to do with representing the place you live or have grown up in.
