Jake Bugg

Jake Bugg

This probably should have been posted a while back, considering the concert was on the 5th of February, but us two and four other friends, Megan, Jennifer, Emilia and KT    
( went to see Jake Bugg! 

 He is absolutely incredible live, and one of the most down to earth musicians in the industry. 

Jake is credited for his comparisons to the likes of Bob Dylan and The Stone Roses, and for bringing a new era of music to the otherwise currently dowdy charts.

 He performed an amazing set, even coming on for an encore to sing big hit Lightning Bolt, cue wild dancing and urine throwing. 

Not one to hold his tongue, Jake has recently slammed One Direction multiple times, and criticized the Brits acts as 'awful', but I think it's great that he isn't afraid to be brutally honest, and that he still remains the lad from the council estate in Clifton. 

We seriously annoyed the people behind us because of our enraged screaming and 'raving', but wotev. The support acts, Hudson Taylor and Little Green Cars, are also worth a listen too! 

f you're considering going to see him, GO. That's the only advice we can give really!

Take A Walk

Hey everybody!

The updates on our blog are pretty bad, but we've literally been out with friends everyday for the past month, so its hard to find the time! 
We're very happy at the moment, but this isn't exactly a personal blog so we won't dwindle on it! 

On Monday, we went with our BFF KT ( of to Olivia's house for one of our fabulously AMAZING girly days!

 It's always a guaranteed good time, and we watched Harry Potter and ate a lot of junk :) We listened to some fab music, painted our nails and then went on a really REALLY good walk through the fields while the sun was setting, because we're cute little tings. 

African dancing with horses is surprisingly uplifting. We've found a new 'spot' which is our secret spot, but we can't tell you where it is, just incase you manage to find it. 

It's right underneath a huge motorway bridge, so you can hear all the lorries rushing above your head (SCARY), and down the bottom of a massive river, where there's a teeny little beach! We've also done a 'Bowl Challenge' ( at least that's what we think its called ) which Ariana Grande did! Take a look at it below!

And here's our new found obsession, Passion Pit, which granted us this post's title! Guarantee you will love them, especially if you adore the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and The Wombats!

Fashion East A/W 2013

Fashion East

What: Fashion East A/W 2013
Where: Somerset House, London
When : Monday 18th February 2013

Never is there a more diverse and entertaining show than Fashion East.

A display of utterly whimsical creations from upcoming designers are featured through the non-profit organisation, which was founded in the hope that it would retrieve some of the best designers and thrust their clothes into the spotlight. 

It has surely done just that. Including reams of Elvis Presley, cuddly toys and fish (anyone?), this show was definitely one that would exceed fashion expectations, and give a more carefree expression to the usually serious side of Fashion Week.

What do you think of the creations? I love the outfits with the toy rabbits, how sweet!

Where: Staples Center, L.A
When: 10th February 2013 

The stars of the music scene were draped in their finest for the event, and rightly so for the biggest awards ceremony for the industry. It was a huge night for the rather unknown array of designers, which many names being dropped that most had never heard of! Here's a selection of the best!

Green Queens: Katy Perry in Gucci,  Solange Knowles in Ralph & Russo and Florence Welch in Givenchy

Women in Black: J-Lo in Anthony Vaccarello,  Kelly Rowland in Georges Chakra and Alicia Keys in Alaia

Stars of the Show:Adele in Valentino Couture, Beyonce in Osman Yousefzada and Taylor Swift in J Mendel

Brights: Karlie Kloss in Michael Kors, Alexa Chung in REDValentino and Nicole Kidman in Vera Wang

And my FAVOURITE dress of the night....

Rihanna in  Alaia!

Amongst the many performers of the night were Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, with their new hit 'Suit and Tie'

and Elton John and Ed Sheeran, who did an incredible cover of Ed's song 'The A Team'! Cute!

Model Muse: Bambi Northwood-Blyth

   Bambi Northwood-Blyth, aged 21, is a model from Sydney, 

She was born Stefani Northwood, but later changed her name as she thought that Bambi represented her personality better, and she had always been commented on for her cute, doll face. 

Her popularity has been rapidly increasing in the past couple of years, due to her individuality and unique look. She has those trademark eyebrows, which helped garner attention for the likes of Emma Watson and Cara Delevingne. 

Bambi is a hit with high fashion magazine Harpers Bazaar, and has also shot for the likes of Russh, Vogue Japan, Armani Jeans , Marc Jacobs AND Nasty Gal. Yep. 

The beauty isn't limited to just editorial though, as she has also hit the catwalk for: Chanel,Balenciaga, Kanye West and Topshop Unique! 

I love Bambi because she has that messy, rough around the edges kind of look, like the type of girl you'd always find downtown or at the beach. 

She is part of a generation of new, slightly grungy models that are set to take over and change the face of the industry.

If you're self esteem just took a pretty low dip after looking at these pictures, don't worry! Because ours did too. Big time.

We love Bambi!
