My week through Instagram

Even though I got an Instagram account ages ago, I am still trying to get used to documenting what's going on in my life on a regular basis. I have to admit that some of the photos were taken earlier than a week ago, but since I'm such a procrastinator I found it hard to get round to writing this post.
On the 6th July, we organized a little get-together to celebrate my name day with lots of cake and champagne. I finished the day with a stroll on the beach accompanied by my best friend.

1. The light, summery dress from New Look I wore that day.
2.  As I have already mentioned in my previous post, I changed my hair colour and here's the final result.

The day after, they organised a concert on the beach and naturally- how could we miss it? The weather was absolutely muggy the whole week- it was getting up to 35 degrees and going out even for 5 minutes without melting away was virtually impossible. During the third song, me and my best friend noticed the storm coming straight towards us and without much thinking, we ran for cover. A few minutes later, all hell broke loose and we were caught in the biggest storm I have seen in the past few years. We hid under the roof with a dozen of other people and for the next couple of minutes, we were constantly being hit by walls of water. We kept laughing and joking the whole time to keep our minds off the whole downpour and it actually worked. When we finally came out of hiding after over half an hour, we spotted a fire brigade and an ambulance and came to notice that the stage collapsed. Column speakers went tumbling down like a house of cards- thank God nobody was seriously injured!

On Friday, the 13th I had my third dental surgery. I left the office with a bunch of stitches and I took the whole recovery thing really seriously this time. I spent the whole Saturday afternoon watching Rules of Engagement and nibbling on some sweet treats to ease the pain (is there anyone who loves David Spade as much as I do?) Since half of my face is swollen and on top of that I have a big bloody bruise, I decided that the best choice would be to avoid going in public until I stop looking as if I got in a fight with Mike Tyson.

5. A delicious cupcake with caramel and hazelnuts- my personal medicine.

Last. but not least... The day after that misfortunate concert I mentioned above, yet another one was bound to take place. Ever since I found out that Ray Wilson was going to perform, I couldn't hold my excitement. To those of you who have never heard this name before, you must have heard of Genesis, an English rock band famous for songs such as 'I can't dance' or 'Land of confusion'. After Phil Collins left the band in March 1996, Ray Wilson became the new lead singer. I've been wanting to see him perform for some time now and I decided that no storm could possibly stop me from doing so. Luckily enough, the weather was wonderful and so was the concert. I enjoyed every single minute of it! After it finished, I managed to make my way through the crowd and quickly take a picture with Ray. Having done that, I was about to join my friend and go home when I heard someone behind me say 'thank you very much!' You can only imagine how surprised I was to turn around and notice it was him, since he hasn't really talked to the others and first of all, I should be the one thanking him for the opportunity! It totally made my day.

If you ever get the chance to see him live, please do- it's worth every penny!
For a little sneak peek, here's my favourite Genesis cover.

Sorry for this longish post, but I decided that I should treat my blog as a personal diary and an outlet for emotions. I want to look back on my old posts in a few years' time and see what the teenage me went through and felt like. If you actually read the whole thing instead of just looking through the pictures, thank you!

xoxo, Dominika.
