I was meant to be visiting Madrid before I went go to Tokyo (with a 5 hour stop over in London on the way). But 5 hours just wasn't going to be enough to pick up my new preciouses. And by preciouses, I mean my very own custom Premium Nike ID Dunks and a pair of Dizzee Rascal x Ben Drury x Air Max 90s. So I blew off Madrid and came back to London for 3 nights. Which as it turns out, was an awesome idea!
Big thanks to my friend Phil who was kind enough to let me stay at his lovely apartment for the 3 nights. Much love! xxx When I arrived in London, and I found Phil's place with the help of Paddy (Phil's friend). Thanks Paddy!
After I settled in, I found a great curry place and tucked in to some Indian delights in front of the TV. After toying with the idea of staying in for about an hour, I decided I better make the most of it and took myself to Ministry of Sound to see Bok Bok & Manara play. After 40 minutes on the Tube, I arrived at Ministry of Sound only to find out that the event was a freshman party and was completely sold out. So no Bok Bok & Manara for me. Again. I'm not have much luck with these two - I think it means they need to come to Oz and play especially for me (hint hint). But I still love yous.
Friday turned out to be an amazing day. I organised to meet my girl Racer Stacey for so drinks and nibbles in the evening, but during the day I had quite a few errands to do, including picking up my Premium Nike ID dunks. So I caught the Tube into the city and went to Carnaby Street and all the High Street stores. To be honest I didn't find anything I really wanted, but ate lunch at Ping Pong (seafood lunch - so yum!)
Getting the Iraks almost makes me feel satisfied to stop buying sneaks for a while. Almost. I have one, maybe two, pairs on my mind that I might be able to pick up in Tokyo. Firstly the Huarache x Air Max x Dave's Quality Meats bacons
What a segway...
Tomorrow I fly to Tokyo! It's hard to believe how time has flown. I've been away for 7 weeks already. And in about 24 hours, I get to see Ki Ki, Glenn and Josh (and soon after Ash and Laura too!) where we'll kick off our Japanoise adventure... So excited!
