    HEY Y'ALL!
    So I've always loved doing video diaries and recaps, so I thought it'd be fun to put one together from Saturday. I must warn you, it's very cheeky and filled with "LOL" moments. Thanks to those who waved, danced, or fist-pumped accordingly to make this possible! Ha ;)

    The morning after. The sun is shining. No magic pill needed. Still basking in yesterday's organised madness courtesy of Dave et al @London. Thank you all. I gained a key Instagram insight: grab every opportunity to capture someone taking a photo of someone taking a photo of something EPIC ... like donuts! Will be uploading more images @intereverything later today and tomorrow. Too many shots. Happy Sunday and here's to the next one. I love LONDON. Will
