A Little Thank you...

This year has been a tough one, made survivable only by the people who blessed my world and stuck around with me through everything. I met a lot of amazing people; most notably being Josie, Alana, Shea, Sam, Chlo, Lauren, Liv and Lottie. I've seen some of my favourite bands live, met some brilliant musicians, and had a lot of opportunities under my wing with this blog (here's to hopefully many more in 2018).

I don't have a lot of new years resolutions, I don't want to put that pressure on myself, which can only lead to inevitable disappointment;

- Go on more adventures with Josie
- See more of Alana and Shea
- Hug my friends every day to remind them that they're loved
- To go to more gigs (and to continue meeting new people)
- To recover !!!
- To get into palm reading, tarot cards, and studying Wiccans and Pagan Witchcraft
- To focus on my A-levels

2017: The Year Of The Photographer


2017 has been eventful, in the best way possible, from meeting new people, to rekindling old friendships, to meeting someone special and working with some of my favourite musicians - 2017 had it all.

So let's work chronologically.

January;

I finally saw some of my favourite bands live - Two Door Cinema Club, Sundara Karma and Anteros!

February;

I completely changed up my look, I cut off my hair into a short bob (got rid of the blue and purple dip-dye) and got a fringe! It was a transformation and a half.

Nina Nesbitt 21/11/2017

Venue; Manchester Sound Control
Capacity;450
Status; Limited ticket availability
Support Act; Goody Grace

Teenage girls in 2013 were either obsessed with One Direction, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus (etc), for me it was Nina Nesbitt. The first time I saw Nina irl, was at her signing tour after the release of her debut album Peroxide, so many people turned up, it was absolutely insane (after queuing for around four hours I met her and got the album signed).

The second was at her Manchester show at the Methodist hall, it was honestly one of the most beautiful nights of my life, atmosphere wise - it's amazing, never have I experienced crowd synchronicity like I have at a Nina concert - it was like we were one big family.

Wolf Alice 09/11/17

Venue; O2 Apollo Manchester
Capacity; 3,500
Status; Limited ticket availability (Standing sold out)
Support Acts; Superfood & Sunflower Bean

Redondo dos!

Wolf Alice have always been that band for me - that band that I thought I'd never get to see live, it'd be too surreal - like I'd be in denial that I was there? To be honest, I'd always worried about seeing them live, I'd hyped it up so much in my head, and I adore their music, and I was low-key anxious that they wouldn't be as good in real life, and that the magic would be gone in a split second - but this wasn't the case.

Feet and Declan Mckenna 23/10/17

Venue; Manchester O2 Ritz (upgraded from Manchester Academy)
Capacity; 1,500
Status; Sold out!!!

Round two! Here we go..

After a phenomenal performance from both parties at Neighbourhood Festival, there was no way I'd pass up the opportunity to experience it again, but it a bigger better venue, (they could've filled Gorilla five times over). Declan Mckenna is the newest sensation in the indie world, after his political single 'Brazil' hit the radio, he absolutely shot into fame, he's become something of a teenage icon, and has captured the hearts of thousands of fans from around the globe.
