My Concert Tips

March Favourites (1)

Hello!

My concert season is rapidly approaching, with less than two weeks until my big 5 Seconds of Summer concert weekend, followed by Beyonce in the summer. It’s around this time of year that many people have concerts coming up. I know some people just turn up to the concert, enjoy, then go home. For others, it’s more of a big outing – especially if they’re a big fan of the artist. Following from last year’s post about my five concert essentials, I’ve written up some of my key tips for getting the best experience from your concert.

Sign up to pre-orders

pre sale

Lots of acts offer a pre-sale if you sign up to their website or newsletters. Find out all the pre-order details and sign up. This way you’re pretty much guaranteed tickets to the show and if you miss out on pre-sale, you have a second chance at general sale. It may also be a great idea to check big fan accounts of that artist via social media because they usually have their ways of finding out all the information you may need.

 

Start saving immediately

Piggy Bank

Whether you plan to get a lot of merch or go out for food before the show, if you start saving from the day you book your tickets right up until the day of the concert, you’ll have a good amount of money to spend. A lot of concerts sell their tickets around 10 months in advance to the actual show, so if you put £5 in  jar every week up until the show that’s 5 X 43 = £215! That means you don’t have to scrape and be very careful with your cash at the event.

 

Staying in a hotel? Book early!

hotel

 

Personally, because of how far my local concert venue is n comparison to where I live and catching the last train home means missing a good 30 minutes of the show, I tend to book a cheap hotel for the night. If you’re like me and book accommodation, definitely book early. The closer to the date you plan to stay at the venue, the more expensive it is. Also, if an act is very big, there’s a chance they have dedicated fans travelling from afar to see them and hotels book up very quickly, not to mention take advantage of the prices. This happened when One Direction came to Cardiff and it’s happening again with Beyonce’s show.

 

Portable chargers are your best friend

Charger

I’ve mentioned this before and I’ll mention it again – take a portable charger. Smartphones are all the rage and there’s a high chance you’ll be using it to take photos/videos of y0ur show or even tweet about it. Smart phones don’t always have smart batteries, so definitely try and invest in a portable charger. Or two, just to be safe.

 

Want merch? Get it at the right time

merch

Never wait until the end of a concert for merch. 1. Everyone has that same idea and 2. lots of things sell out so it’s not guaranteed you’ll be able to get what you wanted. Some concerts offer priority merch access to customers who are signed up to specific clubs, so make sure you find out and take advantage. If you get to the venue to queue early enough, there’s a good chance you will be able to get to the front of the merch queue. Failing that, during the support act is a great time.

 

Not a fan of the support act? Use your time wisely

watch

Speaking of support acts, if you’re not a fan of the ones at your concert, use their set time wisely. Don’t just sit there bored. Go and use the restroom while it’s quiet, go and get some food, your merch or a drink. You’ll be thankful for it later.

 

Bring a spare bottle cap

bottle cap

This may sound weird but lots of venues for some reason won’t let you keep the cap of your water/drink bottle as they think you’re going to throw it. So now you have to awkwardly hold your drink (meaning you probably want to chug it all down before the show even starts instead of saving it to quench your thirst) which is pretty annoying. If you sneak a bottle cap in your pocket (NOT in your bag – there’s the bag search) when they take your bottle cap away from your drink, you can take it back to your seat and slyly put the new one on. #ConcertLifeHack

 

Always keep a friendly attitude

Polite

There can always be absolute idiots and rude people at concerts – don’t be one. If there are some around you, please try to keep your cool. You can always bitch about them when you get home. The more

Those are some of my biggest tips for concerts. I hope they’re of some use to you! Do you have any concert tips? Comment below!

March Monthly Favourites 2016

March Favourites

 

Hello!

March is already over and yet again, I’m still pretty baffled to see the year go by so quickly. Like every month, I have some favourites that I want to share with you, so without further ado…

 

Make-Up Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 02.51.31

I’m finally trying to take contouring seriously and bring it into my make up routine. I’m not the greatest, but I’m not a make up artist. I’ve been debating on whether or not to try a powder or cream contour kit and my friend highly recommended this palette to try. I’ve been using it all month and definitely think it works amazingly. It looks great and applies nicely onto my brushes feels good when applying to my face. It’s definitely great quality for its price and well worth giving a try.

Get it for £8.00

 

Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Gel

 

brush cleansing gel

I’ve seen many people praising this cleansing gel for their make up brushes and so I decided to pick it up in one of my regular visits to Superdrug. It really works well on my brushes and gets them as clean as when I first purchased them. I feel like the gel helps maintain the softness of the bristles where some may or moult after a while of using them, plus the product smells nice, which is always a bonus.

Get it for £.6.99

Danielle Peazer’s Young and Gifted ‘Peace, Love and Happiness’ rollerball Eau De Parfum

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 02.57.34

I’ve been looking for a small handbag fragrance for a while and since dancer model/model/fellow blogger, Danielle Peazer, has just released her first collection I thought I would invest in her rollerball set. The three scents are amazing with Peace and Happiness being quite light and airy, suited for daytime wear and Love being a more deeper scent which is perfect for a night out. These are your handbag’s new best friends. I’m definitely going to be taking these to my concert weekends to top up and just pop in my handbag and they’re really ideal for travel.

Get the set here for £11.50

 

‘Machines’ – Camryn

This is Camryn’s comeback single after spending a year in the studio working on a new sound as she matures from your girl next door teenager to a more young adult sound. I’ve personally known Camryn since she was 11 and I am beyond proud of her achievements, from opening for the likes of One Direction and Cody Simpson to building a strong fanbase. This song sounds like a real hit and I’m excited to see what 2016 brings for her.

Download ‘Machines’ here

‘No Broken Hearts’ – Bebe Rexha ft. Nicki Minaj

I’m not really the biggest fan of rap, but having listened to this after writing an article for Maximum POP! I definitely felt good vibes from the song and ended up playing it on repeat a few times. This song is about reveling in the moment and definitely is a song that I can see on my summer playlist.

Vlog: Little Mix Get Weird Tour @ Cardiff Motorpoint Arena

little mix blog post

Hi guys!

Sunday saw me head to Cardiff to see Little Mix live in concert for the first night of their brand new tour, ‘Get Weird Tour’. This was my first concert of the year and I decided to take you along with me and vlog the day. The entire show was phenomenal and such an amazing production and performance which I definitely think was worth every penny.

2015 favourites

2015 favourites

[Apologies this is late – I’m in bed with two ear infections and the flu. My painkillers have kicked in enough for me to finish adding images and publishing!] 

It’s that time of the year again where I discuss my favourite things from the year. As I lacked in regular posts this year, I decided to just wait until now to do my favourite products from the past 12 months in a post similar to this one. Without further ado, here are my 2015 favourites.

Music 

Little Mix – Get Weird 

Get Weird

Little Mix made a big comeback from their 12 month sabbatical and downtime in the studio with their third album ‘Get Weird’. which is full of melodramatics, sass and just some damn right catchy tunes. Of course, I purchased the Deluxe edition and absolutely fell in love with it. My personal favourites include hit single ‘Black Magic’, ‘Secret Love Song Pt II’ and ‘A.D.I.D.A.S’ (not about the sporting brand, in case you were wondering.) This album is eclectic and showcases the sounds of girl band’s from today’s generation perfectly. I’m very much looking forward to them performing it live next year on the Get Weird tour which starts in Cardiff. Of course, I will be there.

5 Seconds of Summer – Sounds Good, Feels Good 

sounds good feels good

This is the second album from 5SOS since getting signed in 2014 by Capitol Records and it shows such a difference from their debut studio album. The campaign alongside the album, ‘The New Broken Scene’, aims to promote that the album and any environment involving the band is a place for the “outcasts” and people who are suffering with stigma from mental health. Tracks such as ‘She’s Kinda Hot’, ‘Jet Black Heart’ and ‘Broken Home’ are just a few of the songs which fans are able to find pretty easy to relate to and I am definitely in love with this album.

One Direction – Made in the A.M 

made in the amx

The first album post Zayn and the last album pre haitus; Made in the A.M is One Direction’s most anticipated album since Up All Night (aka album number one) and what a difference there has been since 2011. As a fan, I feel honoured to have watched them grow from teenage boys to young men and listen to their sound mature from bubblegum pop to chasing the rock vibes. While I’m sad that we won’t be getting a new album in 2016, I’m very satisfied with the music we have been left with for these 18 months.

Books

Binge – Tyler Oakley

binge cover

As you may be aware from my review, this is something I highly enjoyed reading. The essays compiled by Tyler Oakley covering a numerous amount of topics are definitely relatable to myself or people I care about and is definitely on my top three favourite books this year.

Love, Tanya – Tanya Burr 

love-tanya-burr-book-cover

It’s true that there are many YouTubers signing book deals lately, but ‘Love, Tanya’ is definitely one I recommend. ‘Love, Tanya’ is like a handwritten guide from a beautiful big sister who has experienced the highs and lows of a teenage life and female problems and is now sharing her advice. Plus, the baking chapter is definitely a must read and try.

140 Characters of Truth – Joshua Fox

josh fox

This book was written by my friend and fellow journo, Josh Fox and although I only read it last month, it’s definitely an important one. Josh says the things many of us need to hear. With a message to our generation who thrive on showcasing the perfect life on social media, Josh gets real in a book that merely talks about the truth behind a numerous amount of tweets posted by himself over the years. If you’re as consumed in social media as much as I am, I highly recommend this quick yet eye opening read.

Products 

Lush Intergalactic bath bomb

intergalactic

I’m a sucker for a good bath bomb, especially ones which satisfy my aesthetic. I’ve fallen hard for Lush’s Intergalactic bath bomb which makes it look like outer space in my bath tub. Very satisfying and smells amazing.

£3.95 from LUSH  
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

rimmel wake me up

This has been my go to foundation for 2015 as it has a lovely natural, radiant glow. It’s a light coverage which you can build to your own need and doesn’t feel at all caked on. Definitely got a good use out of this.

Bourjois Délice de Pouder bronzing powder

bronzer

This is definitely a product I found myself using a lot in 2015. After hearing my favourite beauty gurus rave about it and high recommendation from my friend, I picked it up earlier in the year. It’s a fantastic shade for my light skin colour and doesn’t have any orange tone to it, so it gives a natural look. Plus, I love the fact that it reminds me of chocolate!

£7.99 from Feel Unique

Tanya Burr lipgloss in Berry Picking

berry picking

I absolutely loved this lip gloss this year. It gives a berry stained look to your lips (hence the name) and isn’t too overpowering in colour. I love all of Tanya Burr Cosmetics’ lip glosses that I have tried but this one is definitely my favourite.

£5.99 from Superdrug

EOS Strawberry Sorbet lip balm

eos

I’ve never tried an EOS lip balm before this one and it definitely kept my lips moisturised whenever I used it, plus the flavour was really nice. The only downside is that I know you can get them for less than $3 in America whereas they cost a good £7 here in the UK. Next trip to America I shall definitely be stocking up.

£7.00 from Topshop
I hope you enjoyed reading about what I loved in 2015! What were your favourites from last year?

What to take to a concert – my 5 essentials

My concert checklist

I’m pretty sure I’ve told you this, but I have three concerts next month. I’m pretty damn excited but I want to make sure I’m prepared and yes, you need to be prepared for a concert. Whether it’s just the basic purse, ticket, etc. or preparing to queue early for a standing concert to get closer to the front – being prepare makes it much less stressful on the day. Here’s my essentials for every concert.

1. Portable phone charger

EasyAcc

It’s pretty handy to keep your phone charged, whether you plan to use your smartphone as a camera or just to keep in contact with people (pick up/meet up arrangements, emergencies,etc.) and with the blasted iphone battery not being the phone’s  best quality, it’s a good idea to keep your phone topped with charge. I have the EasyAcc 10000MAH Brilliant Ultra Slim Dual USB which is said to “give 5-6 full charges to your iPhone 5 or 2.5-3.5 charges for Samsung Galaxy S4, S3” and so far has failed to let me down. Get it for £18.99 from Amazon.

2. Backpack

Backpack

People normally question as to why I take a backpack to a concert and there’s actually a few reasons. While you may want to show off your favourite bag, there is a chance that it may get damaged at any point, so it’s best not to take one you really like or with flimsy straps. Another reason is merch. Lots of people tend to buy merchandise and with a big bag comes good storage. The last thing you want to do is have to hold a carrier bag when you’re trying to get into the music. The backpack I tend to use is either an old school bag or one I bought for around five euros in Paris. If you have an old one, feel free to use it, or buy a cheap one from eBay. Tip: Don’t take a hiker backpack, just something big enough to hold various items and won’t get in everyone’s way.

 3. Money 

PiggyBank

A bit obvious, I know, but it’s an idea to save up. Whether it’s for merch or refreshments. An idea to have enough money for the concert without finding it too hard to save is to keep a concert jar and put a small amount in every week. For an example, if you buy tickets around 6 months to the concert and save £5 a week, you could have £120 for the concert without breaking the bank meaning you can buy without worrying too much.

4. Snacks/Water

snakcs

If you plan to queue for a while, make sure you take snacks and a drink to eat as you won’t  be allowed to take them into the concert. If you plan to just turn up, make sure you eat before hand.

5. Comfortable shoes

Vans

Heels, wedges, flimsy shoes = no. You need sturdy and comfortable shoes that you can stand in for a long period of time. Also, anything with a heel is also a hazard because you could tread on someone’s foot and gain a very unamused look from someone. I usually wear Vans like the ones pictured above which cost £47.

I hope this helps you for future concerts! Is there anything you like to take to concerts?

March and April Favourites

March and April Monthly Favourites

Hello there!

As you may have noticed, I missed March’s monthly favourites as I was so busy around the time that I planned to write it and I just didn’t get the chance, so I felt it was only right I did March and April into one big favourites.

Maybelline’s Master Graphic Eyeliner

11198963_10153257199210489_710037813_n

I’m a big fan of Maybelline’s Master Precise eyeliner and have been using it for quite some time. That is, until my friend recently recommended Master Graphic. I won’t lie, I’m pretty rubbish when it comes to mastering the winged eyeliner look of any kind, but this eyeliner has made me look slightly less rubbish. The marker style pen has a nib which is designed to help you draw different lines to create the perfect eyeliner look. I’ve still got a long way to go and a lot of practice, but when my friend used it herself, I could see the product’s full potential and I’m confident in saying that one my skills have improved, this gem of a product will be my best friend.

I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry refreshing body spritzer 

 

11198409_10153257199195489_396118491_n

I picked this up on my recent haul after spraying different products in Superdrug. This is a rather deep fruity scent which focuses more on berries than lighter scents such as apple. It’s a gorgeous scent and perfect for daytime wear.

Bourjois Paris Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder

11195533_10153257199145489_476865338_n

I’ve seen this product in many YouTube tutorials and have been tempted to buy it for quite some time. I saw it last month and thought it would be an idea to give it a try. It’s definitely one of if not the best bronzer I have tried (bare in mind I’ve not explored all too much in the make-up world… yet!) It’s not too overpowering and lasts for a considerable amount of hours. Perfect for sun kissed skin!

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula

11124939_10153257199120489_888435927_n (1)

My dear friend, Courtney, has been on about this for some time now. A new skincare tip she has discovered and shared with me is to put this product on your face (I find overnight works better) and it will work wonders for your skin. I could definitely see a difference! My skin seemed less shiny and felt incredibly soft, not to mention looking much brighter!

Maybelline’s Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

11186418_10153257199150489_1483574287_n

 

I’ve yet to find a mascara to stick to full time but when out shopping, the words “Big Eyes” caught my attention, so I thought I would give it a whirl. My lashes with this product look as if they have doubled in size! It isn’t all that clumpy, which is also a bonus and doesn’t tend to leave marks around my eyes. Definitely one I plan to pick up again!

Sleeping With Sirens

Sleeping With Sirens

 

When Courtney came to visit, we decided to recommend one artist for us to both listen to and she recommended Sleeping With Sirens. I didn’t think I would be into them much, but I was wrong. Although they aren’t my ultimate favourite, they’re definitely a band I’ve found myself listening to a lot more. My favourite song is ‘Your Nickle Ain’t Worth My Dime’ along with ‘Kick Me’ which I listened to after purchasing their latest album, Madness. I feel like Kick Me may very well be mine and Courtney’s song as we both listen to it so much!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s monthly favourites! Have you tried any of these? What have you been loving this month?

My 2014 favourites!

Hello!

So, this year has absolutely flown by and although it seems to have gone so fast, there are lots of things I’ve grown fond of. So much so that I’ve decided to put them all into a blog post that is my 2014 favourites. There’s so many that I’ve categorised them so it’s just easier to read and if there’s something that doesn’t particularly interest you, you can scroll past the category.

 

Beauty

I’m no beauty guru but I do take an interest in beauty products and often do slap a bit of make-up on before venturing out (though I’ll happily admit I can go without it and there’s many days where I won’t touch my make-up bag), so these are the products that I’ve been drawn to this year:

  • Maybelline New York’s Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner – this has been an absolute dream to put on for eyeliner. It’s like a thin felt-tip pen and it’s so easy to apply. I’ve got quite shaky hands but it doesn’t really matter with this product as it’s so simple to apply and looks really good.

Maybelline eyeliner

  • Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional – I was introduced to this a few years ago and fell in love with it. My pores are quite big and make me slightly self conscious but this product literally works like magic. I don’t know how, but it manages to make your pores practically invisible and your skin look healthier. I don’t recommend you solely use this as you should treat your skin with cleansing,etc. for it to stay clean and healthy, but if you tend to get big pores and need a quick fix, I highly recommend this product. It’s not the cheapest but it’s so good, it’s well worth the cost. I picked my latest tube up on the ferry home from Paris so I’m not sure if it’ll be the same price as it is usually.

porefessional

  • e.l.f’s Little Black Beauty Book: Warm Edition I’m quite keen on natural and bronze colours for eyeshadows and I came across this product which is full of all the shades I use. It’s so small but you get a really good use out of it. It’s great because there’s tones you may not always use but you can experiment using without having to buy that specific colour. It’s what I’ve used for my everyday make-up routine and I’ve had a great use out of the pallet.

Essential Little Black Beauty Book

  • LUSH cosmetics Ocean Sea Salt- When purchasing this, the woman behind the counter said it would change my life. She wasn’t wrong! Whenever I use this product in the shower or the bath, it makes my skin feel so much softer and look a lot healthier as well as cleaner. It smells amazing and I just feel such a difference on my skin when using it. There’s been times where I haven’t used it (like being on holidays) and when I’ve gone back to using the product, there’s a massive difference.

Ocean Salt

Music

As you may have seen from previous blog posts, I quite like music. A lot. More than a lot. Okay, it’s my life.

  • One Direction: FOUR  This is, without a doubt, their best album by far. The lads have progressed over the past four years and now that they have complete control over writing their songs, each track from the album really reflects their personalities and experiences that the fans are aware about. FOUR has an 80s vibe but with a slight twist. It’s a new sound which they have introduced to their fanbase and I, for one, am totally in love in it.

FOUR cover

  • Olly Murs: Never Been Better – This is Olly’s 4th (or 4.5th? He released a special edition last year of album 3) album and like the previous albums, he never keeps the same sound. They follow the same sort of genre but no two song sound the same. It’s a feel good album and a compelling comeback from his 8 month break- something that makes up from his break from touring and full of songs I am itching to hear on the 2015 tour.

never been better

  • 5 Seconds of Summer: Self titled album – This is the band’s debut album which has been long awaited. It was definitely well worth the wait. With songs they have been performing from their early days at gigs to newly written songs including collaborations written with the likes of James Bourne (McBusted) and Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low), this album is typically 5 Seconds of Summer and is definitely of a pop punk style.5 seconds of summer cover
  • Joan Jett: The Greatest Hits – I fell in love with Jett’s music over five years ago now and having rediscovering this song in my iTunes library a few months ago, it’s something I highly enjoy listening to. It’s full of feminism, in-your-face and stand up for yourself kind of music which never fails to get me in a positive mood.

Joan Jett x

Film and TV

  • The Big Bang Theory – I’ve been a fan of the show for some time now, but this year I had a big marathon of every season which took a couple of days but it reignited my love for it! I’m waiting for the new season to be available on iTunes so I can have a season marathon again.

big bang theory

  • American Horror Story – After my friends constantly kept talking about the show, I felt the need to see what the hype was about. I’ve only seen season one but Murder House was really good and had me gripped! I plan to watch all the seasons throughout 2015 to catch up.

American Horror Story

The Fault in Our Stars – I read the book last year and thought it was amazing and really well written. I anticipated the film for ages and went to watch it with my friends in the cinema. I won’t lie, I did have a little blubber! People question why other people like sad films, but the film wasn’t completely sad and it was just a nice teen film to watch and fall in love with the lead characters.

The Fault in Our Stars

  • Love, Rosie – As you’re probably aware, I went to the world premiere of the film and just fell in love with it. The storyline was gripping and the actors did such an outstanding job, I felt like I was living in the fictional world where the plot took place. I definitely want this on DVD when it releases.

Love-Rosie-Poster-slice

Miscellaneous

  • River Seine Cruise – As mentioned in my October monthly favourites, I loved the Bateaux Parisiens River Seine cruise tour. It was definitely one of the highlights to my trip and the quality of the trip for the price is just outstanding. I managed to take some really good photos, especially of the Notre Dame and the next time I have the opportunity to go to Paris for the day, this is on my list of things to do.River Seine

 

  • La Trattoria – This has been my favourite restaurant this year. Italian is my favourite cuisine and the food here is amazing. The food is of a high quality and the service is phenomenal. There are two restaurants, one in Talbot Green (South Wales) and one in Pontypridd, I’ve been to both and they are amazing but as the Pontypridd one is closer to home, I go to this one more often. If you live in South East Wales and happen to be near either location, I highly recommend you go to La Trattoria. It’s outstanding.

La Trattoria

Those are my 2014 favourites! There’s so much I could have written about but I didn’t want the post to be too long. What did you love this year that I should check out in 2015?

 

Merry Christmas!

November Monthly Favourites

It’s that time again where I share with you the things I have loved throughout the month. It’s now December, which is shockingly worrying because this year has literally just vanished within a blink of an eye, so I’m going to share with you what I loved in October. Let’s rock’n’roll..

FOUR: The Ultimate Edition – One Direction

The Ultimate Edition FOUR

 

My favourite boyband released their fourth album this month, aptly named FOUR. I think this is my favourite album and not just because it’s new, but it’s full of 80’s vibes and is such a transformation from their first album, Up All Night. You can really see how the boys have grown as artists and how being given the opportunity to write their own songs has impacted their sound.

Prezzybox.com

prezzy box

Christmas is rapidly approaching and I never know what’s the best thing to buy people. I hate giving boring gifts as it’s just so expected and forgotten shortly afterwards, so I love to give unusual and unique presents. I’ve been using Prezzybox a lot and it’s full of unusual yet quirky gifts which suits many personalities. If you’re stuck for people to buy for, I’d definitely recommend this website.

Band Aid 30: Better than the original?

Christmas 1984 saw the movement and release of Do They Know it’s Christmas? By British supergroup Band Aid. Founded by Midge Ure and Bob Geldof, the aim of Band Aid was to raise money for anti-poverty in Ethiopia.

Fast forward to today, 2014. It’s Band Aid’s 30th anniversary and we are facing a new crisis. Earlier this year, the world watched as it witnessed Africa suffer the devastating outbreak that is Ebola. According to the World Health Organisation, the outbreak has reached over 5,000 in the death toll.
