When Wegan Met Bria & Chrissy... Again!

Recently we had the pleasure of hanging out with Bria and Chrissy again in London! If you don't know them, they're fellow Youtubers who can sing & act (wish we had your skills ladies!) You may recall that we met them a couple of years ago, where they got up to some mayhem in Windsor.. including trying to hold strangers hands, along with my sister Bethany!! Check that video out here.

This time we met them in London, and unfortunately my iPhone had crashed on me the day before, therefore we had a bit of a wait at the Apple store to see if my phone could get fixed. Shout out to the lovely Apple Assistant who was a gay guy from Australia. The girls were so kind to wait with me, and got UBER excited when they thought they had magically fixed my phone! Alas, it was working again but I had lost ALL of my 5,000 photos. Due to lack of space, I was unable to back up my iCloud sine April 2014, and I hadn't updated the new system. So there's a lesson there kids- delete some photo's, back up your shit, update when they tell you to!! Haha...

Anyways, we headed to the Mexican street food restaurant Wahaca in Soho, where we had a wonderful time catching up. They filled us in on why they've been coming to visit London, and all will be revealed soon (hopefully next week). After getting winked at by a hot waitress, trying chilli chocolate, drinking passionfruit margaritas (Wegan), and tea (Chrissy..with Mexican?!) we moved on to to check out the new lesbian bar She Soho. Well I'm not sure how new it is, but since Candy Bar closed, we hadn't yet checked out the new lesbian hang out. We all loved it at She, it may be tiny but it has great cocktails, a place to talk and then as it filled up, a great atmosphere! The bar staff were also very lovely and excited to have us all there. We look forward to returning one day soon! Insert pic of lovely bar staff...

We decided we'd hogged a table at She bar long enough and headed to G-A-Y Late. Turns out we were early, as we arrived 1 minute vefore the doors open. Therefore at first we had the place to ourselves! (See video... we were so cool).

Before we knew it, sadly it was time to say goodbye. We had such a fun day and truly haven't laughed like that in a long time. Come back soon girls! Or better yet, we'll come to LA! ;)

I'm in a Long Distance Relationship... With My Mother!!

Here's What Happens When you Have to Move 1000's of Miles for Love!

Long distance relationships are incredibly difficult, especially if the distance is between TWO oceans and a massive continent. I lived in beautiful Hawaii for 6 years between 2006 - 2012 and during that time I managed to embark in a long distance relationship with a girl named Megan, all the way over in the UK! We experienced some amazing moments in Hawaii, such as getting engaged on Waimanalo beach. However at the time, Megan wasn't legally allowed to move to Hawaii due the lack of gay rights. That being the case, after 4 years of battling the distance, I packed up my life and moved to the UK to bridge the gaps in geography and to ultimately start my life with the one I love.

What I didn't really think through, or prepare for, is that in moving to join the love of my life, I had to leave everything and everyone else behind. I conquered one long distance to only find myself in another one! I'm now left being in a long distance relationship with my Mother, Father, family and friends. Being my mother's only child naturally made us extremely close growing up; she was a wonderful mother and made me the person I am today. I knew I had to leave in order to start a family with my now wife, but I didn't realise I was essentially leaving her to join another family. Megan's family have been amazing and have truly accepted and made me apart of the family, however it's incredibly hard to have to spend birthdays, mother's day, Christmas', Thanksgivings, etc away from my own family. Guilt starts to set in. It's one thing moving states, which I have done several times, but moving countries with completely different time zones is another matter entirely...

Wegan Went to Mykonos, Greece!

Ahh... We recently headed to the beautiful Greek island of Mykonos for a last minute relaxing week long holiday, making best use of the UK's Bank Holiday and Megan's birthday on 8th May.

We had the most amazing holiday at the most amazing hotel, Pietra & Mare*. If you follow us on instagram then you'll be well aware of our little trip, however we'll be bringing you a full round up of our vacay on here, as well as vlogs of course! Because how can we not share??...

We love to travel and want to keep you more in the loop of where we go, and where we recommend (or don't!) Correct us if we're wrong but it seems that you really enjoy these blogs and vlogs so we'll try to be more on top of it. Thanks for sticking around as we've been a little AWOL on here and youtube. We promise to do better!

*Psst, because we loved it so much, you can get 10% off your stay (including any offers on their website) at Pietra & Mare if you email them quoting 'wegan' to make your booking! It's your turn to make us insanely jealous!
