Olympic Beauty

Unless you live under a big rock, you would know that the Olympic games started this weekend! How exciting, I haven’t been able to watch anything else except switch channels from Judo to rowing to fencing to swimming to my personal favourite gymnastics 🙂 The opening ceremony was ridiculously long, but I managed to get to watch South Africa enter the stadium before I K.O’d!

So, today I decided instead of discussing anything of relevance to my blog (this might happen often due to my slight A.D.D :)) I’d post a couple of gorgeous photos from the opening ceremony just in case you missed it!

Well lets start with MR BEAN….. ‘Chariots of Fire,’ never sounded so good! Yes he may have only played one note of the song, but it was brilliantly done!


The queens ‘over the top’ entrance after catching a ride with James Bond! What a lucky lady… 😉


The rings on fire, a beautiful scene!



David Beckham (gorgeousness)  + Speedboat + Olympic torch = Why did you miss this!! 😉

An incredible fireworks show! I take my hat off to the guys who made this happen!

So that’s just a quick look into what happened this weekend, and I just know the Olympics are going to be AMAZING this year!

What did you think of the opening ceremony, and what team are you cheering for?
