It’s been another busy week in the life and times of Bangs. From boat parties in Amsterdam, to watching latex underwear cruise down a catwalk in London, it was all go. Check out what I got up to.

I used to be a West London girl – the streets of Hammersmith, Shepherd’s Bush and Ladbroke Grove being my stomping grounds. Rarely, if ever, did I venture East. So, when I moved back down to London after a few years bouncing around various countries, and found myself living East side, I stumbled across a brave new world. Sure, the vibe’s different over this way (to say the least), but one of the best ongoing discoveries of the area is the street art, particularly around Shoreditch.

This past weekend I went to Berlin. It was my birthday when I flew out on the Friday and what better way to celebrate than to run a half marathon on the Sunday? I’d wanted to go to Berlin for a very long time, so the levels of excitamacation involved in this trip were pretty ridiculously high. Not only was it the culmination of months of hard work for my Team Bangs on the Run girls, but I was out there with about 60 members of the crew I run with, Run Dem Crew, so the weekend was extra special.

I am lucky enough to be offered a lot of things through this blog, but none have excited me as much as the offer of participating in a private graffiti workshop. When the kind peeps over at Graffiti Life asked if I’d like to do it, my inner b girl body popped and did a windmill. Being somewhat obsessed with the early years of hip hop and films such as Wild Style and Beat Street, becoming a master graffiti artist has been somewhat of a childhood dream of mine. And the workshop did not disappoint.
