June Music Favourites 2016

This month is only going to be a Music Favourite as that's basically all I've been doing the past month to aid my revision...

You are in for a rocky ride as my music taste is not the typical teenage girl; it is all over the place from a bit of pop to alternative and indie rock - there's a bit for everyone I suppose!

Treat You Better // Shawn Mendes

Shawn released a new single 'Treat You Better' at the start of this month and let's face the inevitable fact; it is amazing.  As anyone who has read some of my favourites before may have noticed a common theme of Shawn Mendes!  I absolutely love his voice and music and this song was definitely no different.  As the title implies, Shawn is singing about how he could treat this particular person better than the partner they are presently with.  If you haven't heard it yet, I fully recommend it as you are missing out

All Star // Smash Mouth

I don't really know why but myself and my brother have been singing and listening to this song a lot this month.  I have seemed to listen to it a lot over the past couple of months but this song seems to be my 'go to song' when I want to smile and a good singalong.

The 1975

What a surprise!  Yet again another band I always go on about on my blog!  This month their song You and some of their songs on their self titled debut album 'The 1975' have been getting me through revision.  Can I also say how they smashed Glastonbury this year, I watched their live performance on BBC iplayer on Saturday evening and it just made me want to go back to their concert I went to in March!

Catfish and the Bottlemen
I'm not sure if I have mentioned this band on my blog before but this month I have definitely been listening to the Bottlemen a hell of a lot!  Their new song 'Twice' is just brilliant, they have a more of a rock sense to them.  I don't know what it is about them but I absolutely love their music!  If you prefer more alternative and indie rock, you will love this band.

Send My Love // Adele

Who doesn't love a bit of Adele in their life?  This song definitely gets me moving!  It is just so upbeat and sassy and Adele, once again, slays.  I absolutely love Adele, her voice is just beautiful, along with the rest of herself of course!  If you're not into the big ballads or slow songs of hers I would recommend this, it is much more upbeat and as she describes it as 'happy you're gone' type of song.  It is a lot more about the moving on and escaping of the relationship rather than the holding on to it.

I hope you all had a brilliant June, even though it is exam season in the UK, and July will be even better!

Life Update || Where Have I Been?

So.  It's been a while.  The last post I uploaded was my traumatic experience of getting to and from a Shawn Mendes concert back in May!

I was meaning to blog a lot more since then, but life got in the way I suppose.  I had to focus on my last year of A Level exams, but I had my last one yesterday afternoon and now I am free!  I can live my life the way I want to and I don't have the stress of exams anymore (other than results day!).

I cannot wait to start to blog more and be more creative...

I have so many exciting and adventurous things planned this summer, then instead of going to uni this year, I'm having a gap year!  

I will be uploading a lot more consistently and frequently now I have finished A Levels and sixth form which I have been looking forward to do for ages!
I had my last day ever at the school at the end of May where I have been attending to for the past 7 years and I have met some amazing people and life long friends, but it is definitely my time to go and to end that chapter of my life.

I will probably upload a separate post reflecting on my sixth form life, A Levels and the past two years but for now I can say it was definitely a whirlwind of emotions and feelings.

So until next time friends (which will very soon), I hope you have a fantastic day!
