Clothes Show Live 2015

If you haven't heard already, the Clothes Show Live is an annual festival celebrating all things fashion and beauty ... With a handful of hot models throw in. You get to shop at hundreds of branded and independent stalls at low prices. And when i say low prices, I mean a bag of Rimmel London makeup for £10 when it's worth £30! 

I have been going to the clothes show every year since I was 14 and it never disappoints! For me the highlight of the whole day is watching the catwalk. As a budding fashion stylist, I love looking at what is on the runway each year. Most of it is completely unwearable but utterly fabulous! 

The Catwalk 
However the highlight of the fashion show would have to be the bundles of BEAUTIFUL models. You either want to be them, date them, or lick their perfectly waved hair.  Okay maybe that's just me, but there really is something for everyone! 

The Catwalk (with all the models)
If you're thinking about venturing yourself, I have some tips to help: 

  • Wear comfy shoes, because you will walk for hours and those puppies will get tired from looking at all those bargains.

  • Don't buy for buying sake, I learned the hard way, if you're buying things because they're cheap then you'll end up hoarding and never using. 

  • Save up! No matter how much you restrain yourself, you will spend a fortune. So if you don't want to be in debt for months afterwards, then put a bit back each week so you can buy that dress you've wanted for ages.

Overall,it was absolutely amazing! I will continue to attend the Clothes Show every year as it really is one of my favorite events, and I would recommend you definitely planning on taking a trip down next year.

Front Row Hoe

Recently I've had the pleasure of going to see Circa Waves in Manchester. They have put on one of the best shows I've seen in a while ! The vocals and the music were equally beautiful , also in general the whole atmosphere was electric! 
I attended with one of my best friends, Katie (check her out on Twitter : @allthelovekat ) and we managed to get caught up in multiple 'mosh pits' . How you can start a mosh pit at an indie concert I will never know. 

Circa Waves
The support acts were equally as amazing ! In particular Sundara Karma. They have managed to find a place as one of my new favourite bands. Their music was great ........ it helped that their faces were beautiful too . But who doesn't love a bunch of guys in skinny jeans, leather jackets and curly hair !

Not long after going to see Circa Waves, I went to watch The 1975. This was without a doubt THE bet night of my life! They introduced with their latest single Love Me ,which for the first few seconds, you couldn't make out from all the screaming....mainly by me. I have never seen them live but I can safely say, they sound incredible live. Girls, The City, M.O.N.E.Y and Menswear were my favourites of the night. The vocals and music were just as good, if not better than the album, also the whole night was just incredible and I would defiantly recommend going to see them!

Let me introduce myself: I am a sixteen year old college student, who is an aspiring fashion stylist. I am a confessed clothing, music and food addict who likes to procrastinate by watching American Horror Story non stop! 

My shopping obsession is slightly getting out of control...And by slightly I mean there's no going back! This also can be said for my love of good food. As much as I like reading other blogs about eating kale and doing yoga at sunrise, nothing beats a good slice of pizza, am I right ?! 

By you reading my blog, I hope to inspire you in some way, even if that means you becoming obsessed with American TV shows or buying more clothes!
