On Thursday, us and three of our friends went to see the AMAZING Two Door Cinema Club!
After getting the tickets last minute, it was a bit of a scramble getting an outfit together that was good enough to impress Alex, Sam and Kevin but we just about managed!
It was an incredible night, with dance-offs, mosh pits and a topless guy who wanted to recruit 'pointy homies'.
Plus, we got so RIDICULOUSLY close to the front!
|From L-R: Sam Halliday, Alex Trimble and Kevin Baird. Mmm.|
|Yeah, it ain't even zoomed in honey.|
Supporting was Nirvana-esque group Swim Deep and the rather fabulous Bastille.
Anyway, enjoy these few pictures and videos from the concert!

Hey! We aren't going to inundate you with our life stories, but we've been out a lot lately so haven't had much time to update! It's snowing like MAD in the UK, so we've been having a lot of snowball fights, like last Friday with the boys for 3 hours, but we TOTALLY won, of course.
Here's a few photos from the lovely wintery weather!

What: Chanel Haute Couture S/S 2013
Where: Grand Palais, Paris
When: Tuesday 22nd January 2013
It's Paris Couture Fashion Week!
And who better to set the stakes high than King of Couture, Karl Lagerfield!?
Set in an enchanted forest created under the wooden dome of Grand Palais, the beautiful fairy-like models of Chanel Haute Couture amazed the fashion crowd with their gothic take on Midsummer Night's Dream.
Models such as Stella Tennant, Cara Delevingne and Lindsey Wixson walked in the sugary sweet wonderland, clothed in flowy floral concoctions and feather-coated bell skirts.
A darker, more sinister take on the classic spring trend, Chanel used dreamy flower prints, chantilly lace and their trademark tweed in a palette of basic pales, creams and blacks.
The drastic eye make-up (resembling mine after watching The Notebook) put a lovely contrast against the la-di-da type designs and, on some of the models, feathers and neat netting were stuck on instead of lashes, which gave a pretty effect on the runway.
I think this was a creative and unique show, and Karl Lagerfield did a great job! Not to mention, one of the more extravagant dresses took a scary 2000 hours to make! No pain, no gain.

We just wanted to say that we are so so so sorry we both haven't really been on that much lately and we feel terrible! School has just started again and we can never really find enough time to really sit down and do a blog post we know you'll love. But...
We've just had the best idea ever!
We aren't going to give anything away yet ;-) but just know that a HUUUUUUGE surprise is coming your way soon!
It won't be released till next month but we've already started planning it and coming up with new ideas! As well as our special surprise, we will be doing various tutorials to do with what we're doing so it'll give you all something to be excited for!
We're deeply sorry once more but you won't have to wait much longer!
Lots of love ro ro x
What: People's Choice Awards
When: Wednesday 11th January 2013
Where: Nokia Theatre, L.A
Awards Season is here (woohoo!) and we LOVE IT. With the Golden Globes tonight and The Brits, The Grammys and The Oscars in February, we can't wait to see all the starlets flaunting their designer gowns down the red carpet!
Expect full coverage on the fashion side right here! Here's a selection of dresses from the People's Choice Awards from Wednesday night, which allows the public to fully decide who wins each award- and there was over 50 of them!
The odds were most definitely in Jennifer Lawrence's favour, as she took home 6 awards, and 'Hot or Cold' singer Katy Perry received 4!
What do you think of the selection of gowns?
|Olivia Munn in Carolina Herrera, Jennifer Lawrence in Valentino Couture & Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang and Jimmy Choos.|
|Shay Mitchell in Giorgio Armani and Jimmy Choos, Lea Michele in Elie Saab & Ashley Rickards in an embellished nude gown.|

On behalf of us both, I deeply apologise for our lack of post updates.
We've both been SUPER busy, but we'll try and keep the blog following even though we're back at school now! This isn't exactly a fashion-related post, but more of a latest craze post.
At the moment, I have a bit of an obsession for tattoos.
Now, I am only 15 and there are a few years before I am even legally allowed to THINK about getting 'inked', but I found a lot of really cute tattoos that I simply must share!
There seems to be an odd craze for getting Chinese symbols tattooed on ( a lot probably don't even know what they mean! ) and I can honestly say that I am guilty for drawing Chinese thingys on my arm too because I thought it was cool :(
Anyway, I definitely prefer smaller, more meaningful tattoos compared to the bright and bold sleeve ones that are SO FETCH right now.
This one is my favourite, possibly because Lightning Bolt by Jake Bugg is one of my fave songs! I think it's so cool.
Hope you enjoyed the post and expect more stuff coming rather soon!
A VERY belated Happy New Year Post!
Hope you all had a great one!
2012 has finished, 2013 has started wooo! Did everyone have a great New Year? We certainly did!
Both of us went to separate parties and I got to see family I haven't seen for a while! Like my dads cousin that lives in Portsmouth. She also told me that when she was in college she took a course in fashion and produced her own fashion label! My dad's cousin and his boyfriend threw a great party! We danced for ages and he was even giving me jelly shots and mango sours and they were dee-sgusting! Yuk!
As my cousin had his x-box on with dance central playing, I knew better than to dress up in a dress and heels so I went for the easier option which included a pair of Black skinny jeans from topshop and a lace, sleeveless top from Henry Holland!
I went to my stinkin rich Auntie's house for her annual NYE Party and it was so much fun! A lot of my family and friends were there and we all had a great time :-) Most of the photos are pretty embarrasing so I'll just show you a few from the night! Lets just say we got a bit muddy and had a tad too much Red Bull!
Love you all!
