NYC 3- New York, New York, A Wonderful Town

We’d been so lucky with the weather during our stay in the Big Apple, but sadly, that dream died a wet soggy death on Saturday morning. Rain pelted down and the streets were grey and full of puddles. Good then, that this was the morning I chose to go and queue for matinee tickets at TKTS. I got really wet (and not in the good way wheyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy).

Chic feat. Nile Rodgers at The Roundhouse

On Saturday I fulfilled a massive TICK off my wish-list- to see Chic live. Ever since I saw the footage of their Glastonbury set in 2013 (I have actually never been to a music festival because I have a deep set fear of camping and portaloos. AREN’T YOU JUST WET ALL THE TIME?!) I have harboured a burning desire to see them play live. AND IT WAS EVERYTHING I DREAMED OF AND MORE! Turning up at Camden’s Roundhouse, I met my friend Hannah, who gleefully informed me that she was  ...
