London 2012 Olympic Games - Canoe Sprint.


Firstly I'm really sorry for not doing many beauty posts lately (my last one was the Covergirl one), but I promise I have quite a few beauty reviews coming up for you over the next couple of weeks! I also have my giveaway coming up, and a blog sale with lots of beauty products, so make sure you stick around :)

Secondly, I finally got a ticket to the Olympics! On Thursday one of my oldest friends gave me her Canoe Sprint ticket as she could no longer go, so yesterday I headed to Eton Dorney at 7am. I drove, and despite what they said, parking was easy peasy, and free! The event itself was amazing, the atmosphere incredible, and I saw Ed McKeever win a gold medal, as well as the GB mens double 200m win bronze. I have a video of when Ed McKeever won, and the cheering is just crazy, so I'll put that up later when I have more time.



Ed McKeever's race which he won Gold in! He's in the middle in the white canoe with the red tip.

Really wish I'd taken my Nikon DSLR with the 200mm lens rather than the GF3 with the 43mm :(

The mens doubles. 200m. 

Have any of you been to the Olympics? What did you see?

    1. Thank you! It was so much fun and an amazing experience, I was just lucky to get a last minute ticket from a friend, as I didn't get any in the ballots or general sale :(
