Taco Bell Southampton Opening Party | #LIVEMAS

Tonight for me meant one thing – TACO BELL IN SOUTHAMPTON. The American food chain has actually had stores in the UK for a few years, but this Southampton Store is the first down South. It’s officially opening on Wednesday, but I was invited to the VIP party to try some food and have a mooch around the store before it opened.

Black Diamond Luxury PR AW16 Press Day

April 28th was an exciting day, as I headed to The Westbury Hotel in Mayfair, London for Black Diamond Luxury PR’s AW16 Press Day. There were lots of great brands there, including Coach Watches and a Little Black Dress collection, in collaboration with Alesha Dixon. I thought it was the perfect occasion to take my big Canon camera to take some photos, view them below.

I had such a great day, so thanks to Black Diamond who gave me the invitation to their Press Day, it was great to see all the awesome brands – I definitely want those trainers!

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter to see more updates from me.

A Day Out In Brighton – The Brighton Music Conference*

A couple of weeks ago, I received a mystery email. Within it, contained a complimentary ticket to the annual Brighton Music Conference, a two-day event specifically about electronic music. It’s not really my thing, but I decided to get on the train and go along it to anyway. It also gave me a chance to explore Brighton, a city I’d never really spent that much time in.

Lifehouse – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 3/10/15

After touring Amsterdam, Germany and going on to tour the Philippines and Australia, Lifehouse ended the European leg of their tour with a second date at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire due to popular demand from the fans, showing that with a new record and over a decade of touring round the world that they can still pull off a show to remember.
Firstly though, Dublin-based support band Raglans took to the stage. During their 7 song set they performed “True North” for the first time live which was a real treat, as it was a highlight of their set. (more…)

Green Day Concert: 1st June 2013 Review

Hello Music Lovers,

Here’s my review of the Green Day concert I went to in London last week:
When I walked up to the Emirates Stadium in London, I never knew what to expect with this concert. I knew every concert everyone else I’d spoke to had attended was amazing. I’d waited forever to see Green Day, 9 and a half years in fact. With my ticket in hand (pictured below), I made my way to turnstile J and waves of excitement convulsed through me as I handed my ticket to the kind lady who scanned it for me. I was in. We (my sister and I) had arrived just as All Time Low (one of the support acts) was starting their performance.
