OMFG!

Please ask/ give permission if you're going to post these photos else where.

I will be the first to admit that I had a lot of doubts about the McBusted tour. 
At first I loved the idea, but then I started adding about a million extra dates. And I started to wonder what the tour would be like. But honestly, last night was one of the best nights of my life. 

If you read this post, you'd know that 10 year old was obsessed with both Busted and McFly.  I was a bit to young to see Busted live 10 years ago, but being in my favourite city, seeing my two favourite bands live with my best friend of 16 years, yeah, you could say this was about as close to perfect as it could get. 

I won't post any spoilers as I know there's still lots of people waiting for their dates to arrive, but I swear to god it was incredible. 

It makes me so happy seeing them in this amazing place. Mcfly have so much energy performing and this McBusted thing just kind of makes sense right now. 

I know I'm not the only in Mcfly's fan base to have doubts about this tour, but believe it is something that's really special. 
I definitely don't think it will be a permanent thing (and I'm glad about that) but honestly, when it's gone I'll probably miss it a ton. So right now I'm going to carry on being happy for them. 


Also, Dougie looked extra perfect last night. (See top pic)
Much Love.

Coachella | My Fashion Favs






Festival season has well and truly kicked off with the 2 weekend long, celebrity infused Coachella!
The music festival in Indio, California, is known for having incredible line up's year after year. But it's also as much about the music as it is about the fashion.

Now living in England, our festivals are a little different. For us Brits, festival season includes animal onesies, wellies and a lot of rain and mud. And by a lot, I mean A LOT. 
But I think that's way Coachella's interested me for years. Like I said in last years post, Coachella releases the inner hippy in every one.
I like to keep with festival fashion, art and music as it tends to fill me up with inspiration (and have serious envy of anyone who lives in California)

This year I thought it would be a fun idea to show you all a few of my favourite outfits over the past 2 weekends. 
I've obviously narrowed it down to just a few -there's always so many that I love!


What's your favourite festival fashion?

Review | The Vamps- Meet The Vamps

Photo Credit: One,  Two

When a band with as much talent and charisma as The Vamps have pops up, it's an extremely rare thing. 
I discovered them about a year ago, and then saw them live twice during Mcfly's Memory Lane tour in May. And it didn't take me long to realise they were going to be the biggest thing since sliced bread (read all about my obsession with them in previous posts here)

Their debut album has just been released here in the UK, and those cheeky lads off YouTube have definitely delivered the goods. The album's bloody perfect.


These 4 guys are incredibly talented for such a young age -with Connor being the youngest at 17 and eldest James just 19- and have such an amazing stage presence. They've already toured with the likes of Taylor Swift, The Wanted and, as above, McFly.

Over the past 6 months, they've released their first 3 singles -"Can We Dance", "Wild Heart" and "Last night"- and they pretty much set the tone for the rest of the album.
Their music is infectiously happy and quirky. With added folky-ness. 
The whole album is pretty much summer soundtrack PERFECTION. 
I already see myself sunbathing down the beach listening to "High Hopes" and "Lovestruck".
"Somebody To You" (which my personal fav) is going to be a big one during shows with its huge chanty 'YEAH YOU'. And don't surprised if songs like "Smile" gets your parents singing along.

It's easy to think their "the new Mcfly" and I can see why. But these 4 boys have taken what Busted and Mcfly created before them and decided to put their own spin on it all. 
In all, The Vamps are an incredibly unique band who have created an album full of hits. I can't wait to see what the future holds for them.

Personal Favourites: "Dangerous", "Lovestruck", "Smile", "Somebody To You"
For Fans Of: 5 Seconds of Summer, Mcfly, R5 & One Direction.

Redheaded Wednesday.

Dress; Asos

Whilst browsing through Asos the other day (ha, I do that most days) I came across this simple velvet black dress with an adorable lace collar.
I looked at it and said "I bet if I wore that I'd feel like Wednesday Addams." And so I brought it. It arrived Friday afternoon and I instantly put it on.

And I was right -I felt like Wednesday Addams. 
And that's how this dress became the single greatest purchase I've ever made.

Made Peachy.



Last week me and my mum took a little trip to Birmingham for an art show. Whilst there, I met the lovely Laura from Made Peachy. She showed me how to make this super cute reverse-able peter pan collar, which I am completely obsessed with!
Please excuse the slightly bad quality instagram pic of me as I've lost tri-pod, but I just had to show you guys!

I'm not going to lie, I was quite scared of the sewing machine but purely because I haven't used in at least 5 years and I'd completely forgotten everything! But Laura made sure I knew what I was doing. And it turned out to be one of the most easiest things I've ever made, plus it looks so cute with literally everything.

Unfortunately, the pattern and how-to guide aren't yet up on Made Peachy, but I'm sure they'll be put up soon.
Make sure you check Laura's blog as she has a ton of adorable little DIY projects for you to try at home.



Much Love.

Take Me To Los Angeles...




I feel as though all  my blog posts in the past couple of months have had something along the lines of "sorry for forgetting to blog" in them.
I've not been myself lately but I won't go into that. But I promise I will try and get better.


Recently I've had SEVERE wanderlust. My brother came back from his trip to Australia two weeks ago, and he's been showing us photos and telling us all about it. It sounds amazing. Just travelling. Being free. But it's made me want to pack my bags and get on a flight somewhere.
The problem is -I'm too damn scared to do it on my own.





The one place I've wanted to visit for as long as I can remember is California.
I've never been, but for some reason i feel as though there's a piece of my heart there.
Is that weird? Something keeps pulling me there. And I'm not sure how to describe it.

I've actually been planning my trip there for years, but in the past week or so I've started really looking into. I even looked at flights and hotels the other day! And I've even thought about adding in Hawaii adn Arizona/ Grand Canyon in as well. I'm hoping to go Autumn this year (very unlikely) or next year.  But as I said above, I am far too scared to go out alone.


All Photos can be found on my weheartit page.

I want to hike up to the Hollywood sign, take a road trip down Pacific Coast Highway, dance around Coachella, wander around San Francisco, rummage through Amoeba record store, go on Santa Monica's Ferris wheel, shop around Melrose and swim in the Pacific Ocean.

The weather here in England has been absolutely dreadful and although it's started to get a bit sunnier and warmer this week, I'm still dreaming of palm trees and paradise.

Maybe it's what I need. To do something I'm scared of. Maybe I need to get out of my comfort zone and experience a whole new way of life.

I guess what I'm trying to say without being rude is -I'm sick and tired of this place, and I need to get away for a while. And, as it would appear, my heart is yearning for the Pacific Coast.


What places would you recommend in the California/ West Coast/ Hawaii area?

Much Love.

A Day In London.

Hat- F+F, Denim Jacket- Topshop
On Wednesday, Me and my mum took a little trip up to London as neither of us had been up for a day trip in a while.
We did some shopping in Selfridge's, Harrod's, Hamley's and Carnaby Street and just generally explored around a bit.



I had my first ever Pinkberry, which, btw, was delicious! Why don't we have more in this country?
We also found the original Iron Man suit that was worn by Robert Downey Jr whilst in Harrod's.


I also met Anna from Disney's Frozen whilst on Oxford Street.

After our long day out we went to the Royal Albert Hall for a show, and then to the airport to pick my brother up after his trip to Australia


Short but sweet post for you guys since I've been slacking abit on the blog posts lately. 

I apologise. I promise I'll try and get back into the swing of posting regularly. 


Much Love.
