First up was ROAM. These guys live not too far from my hometown and, although I've listened to their music, I have never seen them live. But they were so good! I came in just after their set had started and for the first support act, they really got the crowd going.
Second was Knuckle Puck.
I saw Knuckle Puck for the first time about 6 months ago with Neck Deep and I fell in love. This tie they were just as good. I had second row by the time they came on (I'm really good at getting to the front at gigs) and I had such a good view.
Finally, State Champs.
Ok, this is where things start to get insane.
Before I start I need to state this- I’ve never been to that venue and I highly doubt I’ll be going back(apart from when I see tssf but thats because I’ve already got tickets and they’re my loves)
Security were incredibly unhelpful and rude to a boy I was with whilst we were waiting in the queue. All he did was ask a question about his ticket...
And then during State Champs, a security man pushed the girl standing next to me over. Like literally pushed her onto the floor and then her boyfriend (I assume it was her boyfriend) started a fight with the bouncer and State Champs had to stop their set to make sure everyone was ok.
They even said multiple times on stage that they would not be coming back to that venue.
I didn't really get many decent photos but I got a couple of videos which I'm going to upload to my instagram.
It's a shame things got a bit ruined, but apart from the dickheads of security, it was a really good night.
ROAM and Knuckle Puck were amazing and State Champs never fail to put on an amazing show.
Also, I'm so excited to hear State Champs' new album!!!
These guys are quickly becoming one of my favourites!
Can you believe it's been a whole year since My Little Box started delivering to the UK?!
Time flies. And MLB have definitely not lost any of my love. Throwback to my first ever review for them!
My first review was full of me being nervous and excited (I had never really done any reviews as in-depth as that) I took a long time writing that post, and since then I've always been so excited for MLB to arrive. Not just because they are constantly filled with beautiful items, but also, I really enjoy writing these blog posts.
Last September's box was an introduction to French beauty box and all things Parisian. This year, MLB have taken inspiration from the fashion world.
Obviously, September is the time of the year when some of the most famous cities play host to beautiful clothes, miles of catwalks and fashion darlings have an absolute ball. Oh yes, Fashion Weeks.
I actually turned 22 on the 3rd, but there's been a lot going on recently which is why I haven't been blogging so much.
Of course, being 22 means I will be listening to Tay's "22" waaaay too much over the course of the next year. Luckily for me, my mum quite likes Taylor so I'm good to play it lots.
This year I'm going to work on becoming a healthier more positive version of myself. I won't go into on here, but I've basically put my body through a lot over the past 6/7 years. But I'm learning what makes me feel good and what doesn't.
I swear I've done more than this but I can't find them.....
But anyway, here's a little Jack and Sally mash up that I did the other day. Inspired by the lovely MadeYewLook on youtube (Seriously, check her out!)
My scanners still playing up. It keeps putting these weird black smudges on the photos/work I scan in. I've tried my best to get rid of it, but it's still kind of there.
I'm half way through a River Phoenix piece as well which I've stopped for now as I was just getting frustrated with it. Hopefully I'll have finsihed him by next month. I've been wanting to draw River for ages now. But I can't get his cute little button nose right or his eyes, and it's driving me mad.
Haha! My mum surprised with a trip down to Perranporth.
My cousins from yorkshire were also going there for a holiday. One of my cousins, Jodie, happens to also be my best friend. Unfortunately, we don't get to see each other too much as we live 6 hours drive apart.
Let's just say that both of our parents surprised us and we had so fun skating around Newquay and surfing down on Perranporth. My Brother gave her, her brother and her boyfriend a surf as none of them had ever done it before.
I didn't take many photos this time. Maybe I should go back....
I'm starting to spend more time in Newquay than I do my own hometown.
I'm okay with that!
If you know me, then you'll know I'm a big fan of One Tree Hill. I have been since I was 13.
It finsihed a couple of years ago *sniff* but it had a pretty impact on my life. That sounds strange right? A tv show had a big impact on my life? Well it did. It taught me alot. Basically helped me through high school and, so far, my 20's. It also introduced me to a ton of music.
Two of the artists OTH introduced me to: Tyler Hilton and Kate Voegele.
Sunday night saw them co-headline my favourite venue- Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms.
