Happy New Year

Happy new year! I hope you all had a restful and fun filled time over the holidays. I certainly did and despite doing nothing overly extravagant for New Year’s Eve I feel like I’ve got this year off on the right foot. As one year ends and a new one starts it seems that everyone becomes […]

Friday Favourites

This week seems to have been the absolute longest in my life yet somehow it feels like last Friday was just yesterday! So here we go again with all my best bits of the week. #     Saturday was mostly spent either talking to the police or waiting for them to get back to […]

Happy Birthday To ME!

So, Monday was my birthday and I have been contemplating things. I realised that this is the first year where I haven’t been particularly unhappy in some aspect of my life and haven’t been actively trying to change something. Last year was my job, the year before was a handful of things, as where the […]

Friday Favourites

Here we go, it’s that time again. My favourite things from this week are… #     The OH and I cleaned the flat from top to bottom and cleared out every box, cupboard and bag that has been lurking since we moved in back in March. Not only is it now sparkly clean everything […]

Live Review: Vans Warped Tour, Alexandra Palace, London

My university days and beyond have mostly been filled with pop-punk and ska music. Proper feel good, summery tunes. So when I heard that the Vans Warped Tour was heading to London with a handful of my favourite bands on board I started counting down the days! The Warped Tour triumphantly trundled into London’s Alexandra […]

Live Review: Maximo Park, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London

Once upon a time I used to a bit of street teaming and merch selling for bands. It started with little known indie touring bands that would pass through Liverpool. All I had to do was hand out some badges or stickers or, occasionally something a bit more interesting like branded chocolates or frisbees in […]

Live Review: Billy Talent, The Roundhouse

When the Rock Sound Riot Tour was announced I got pretty excited. I love Billy Talent. Then, when Don Broco were added to the line up I was over the moon. My excitement was totally justified though, what a brilliant night it was! Knowing that Don Broco were kicking the Rock Sound Riot Tour off meant […]

Live Review: Nicki Minaj, O2 Arena

I’ve always viewed Nicki Minaj as a bit of an oddity to be taken with a pinch of salt. After seeing her live at the O2 Arena at the end of October I now realise, she sees herself a bit like that too. On stage she is an over the top caricature of what people perceive […]

Friday Favourites

I missed out on doing this post last week and I didn’t even realise until Sunday! The weeks just seem to be zooming by at the moment, at an alarming rate. Does this mean I’m getting old? I’m sure I used to remember my mum saying things like this when I was younger. Anyway, I’m […]

Live Review: Relentless Free Festival 2012

Sorry for being so quiet recently, I’ve been a very busy bee and hopefully I have lots to share with you. To kick off I recently spent a rather chilly afternoon in Battersea for Glasswerk where I reviewed the Relentless Freeze Festival. You can find my review on the Glasswerk website here which is where this first appeared. I […]
