Treasure Island

So the other weekend the girls and I went to a music festival, on an island, Treasure Island to be exact.
The name reminds me of all things childish and particularly Disney. 

The island actually hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including the Treasure Island Flea Market the last weekend of every month (more on that later I'm sure).

Setting off we got on the free shuttle bus - read limo style leather sofa bus - got off on the picturesque little island with stunning views of the bay and the city, and enjoyed our day. 

Favourites included The XX (with bits of their new album), Los Campesinos, M83 and Youth Lagoon.
We enjoyed the festival food, including the best Red Velvet Cupcake I've ever had (Sorry Hummingbird...), checked out some stalls, and lazed about in the sun.

Lets Go, San Francisco

So, I finished my second internship at a PR company in London, which may well have been the best internship I have done to date. I've been invited back and definitely plan to next summer. 

 In the meantime I've popped across the Atlantic to live here...for a year. (For those who aren't aware the photo is the Golden Gate Bridge, in San Francisco). My time here has already been amazing, attending regular free festivals and street fairs - the street food fair may well have been one of the best (more on that later). My classes are really interesting, I've made a lovely group of American friends, and the city's incredible. I'm off to the OC/LA/San Diego for thanksgiving too, having kindly been invited in the first few weeks here, so there'll be plenty of news from that trip. And am looking into where to go at Christmas. 

Food, travel, lifestyle, fashion, some exciting news... and more photos coming super soon!
