I like the idea that New Year’s Day is the new New Year’s Eve! There’s so much pressure to have so much fun on New Year’s Eve that if you haven’t drunk enough you might notice that the service is a bit crap and the sound system isn’t that great, and your ticket was overpriced (but that’s supply and demand). Also I’m not really big on queuing for events (especially when you have a ticket) and I really hate that there is always a queue for the woman’s loo.
This season quite a few people I know are having a quiet night in and are celebrating New Year’s Day! There are lots of venues that are having New Year’s Day parties like Old Queen’s Head pub in Islington and Ministry of Sound. It does sound tempting but I can’t resist tradition, so for me it’s New Year’s Eve, a fun frock, cocktails and dancing with friends!
For some reason it feels quite exciting to sit in a big chair! You can’t help but feel a bit silly and delighted at the same time! This chair is the largest rocking chair ever made and is at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!

I love carousels. They are just so beautiful and magical. I’ve wanted to rent on for a shoot for ages! Saying that, I’ve never been on one, not even when I was little but I’m fascinated by them and can’t pass them by without stopping and taking a photo. This carousel is currently outside the Natural History Museum in London.
