North Wales #1 – Scouting for Girls & Anglesey

I’ve spent just over a week in Wales, and got up to some amazing stuff! Even though I lived here for nearly two years it was great to be able to return and be a tourist!

First off, I went to my old Universities summer ball and saw Scouting for Girls live, who were surprisingly still on top form and one of the best bands I’ve seen!


I had intended to do an OOTD or GRWM but I had a few ciders and forgot…but anyway, here’s the best I can do, make up done by myself using mostly Mac (lipstick Revlon), and dress Red Herring at Debenhams.

Anyway, for a week now I’ve had their songs stuck in my head, and they did some amazing covers of other songs too. Thanks to Bangor Academi for organizing them, it wouldn’t have been the same without them.

When we finally got some sunshine we decided to head over to Anglesey to enjoy the beaches. There’s loads, but finding them is a bit of a nightmare if you haven’t planned ahead. We always go to Rhosneigr, its easy to find off the A55 and easy to get to. Newborough is another popular beach, but be prepared to pay £4 to get to it!

There’s even a Prehistoric monument just a 5 minute walk up the hills that separate the main beach and the bay!

Now back across the Britannia or Menai bridges, that connect Angelsey to mainland Wales, you can get to Bangor pier within 10/15 minutes. The pier stretches out so close to Anglesey you could almost touch it, and gives you not only great views of the Anglesey coast but also great views of the North Wales coastline and the Snowdonia National Park. 

I reunited with Hannah from HannahSundae, and we ate some amazing scones at the Tea Room at the end of the pier (if you’re in Bangor, go, they are good!).

It’s getting a bit photo heavy now, but come back throughout next week for the good stuff, with a post on Chester Zoo (technically not Wales, but, shh), and wandering around Snowdonia!

Hope you’ve had a great week! Ness
