#ThePowerofSummer: Pop Up At Battersea Power Station

A note from Joelle... 
I was invited down to the iconic Battersea Power station for the launch of the Indytute pop-up park! To say 'it was unreal' would be a huge understatement!
If you don't know what a pop-up is, it's hipster speak for a business/event that literally pops up out of nowhere and occupies a space for a limited time only.
 When we arrived, my sister and I got some delicious frozen cocktails and sat down to soak up the atmosphere.
 This was our backdrop!
We then hopped over to the Everyman Cinema to watch 'Reservoir Dogs' - a classic gory crime film directed by Quentin Tarantino.
The sun set over the open air silent cinema, which added to the coolness of the event!
We had worked up quite an appetite after the film, so headed to the Street Feast London Collective area to see what was on offer.

 Yes, yes they are........
 My sister went for the 'Reservoir Dog' with pineapple slaw
I went for the chilli cheese dog...
"There's no way I can fit this all in my mouth" that's what she said! ;)
To wash down those posh dogs, it was time for another cocktail
We both went for a Spring Punch, a fruity vodka and prosecco-based cocktail
 It was heaven!
Okay, one last look!
 Shredded beef, red cabbage and truffle mayo fries inside the burger? HELL YEAH! No wonder the queue for le bun was so large!
 My sister couldn't wait for me to get a perfect burger shot and just dug in! 
We also tried some fresh, fluffy donut bites with salted caramel sauce and marshmallows!
 This was our view on the bus from Chelsea to Victoria. I looooove London on night's like this!
I just had to sneak in a pic of my new ASOS ballet pumps! I got them yesterday morning and just ripped off the packaging and wore them straight to this event!
I had  lots of lovely compliments :)

Over the rest of the summer, there are lots of food markets, cinema and workshop experiences at this venue and you can find out more HERE.
If you are in London from 10th July to 31st August, DO NOT MISS THIS! Make a day of it will some pals, or head to a quirky workshop after work. Anything goes, as long as you experience #ThePowerofSummer
