May 31st

Well hello there!

I'd firstly like to apologize for the lack of blog posts these past couple of weeks, I have quite simply been so overly busy that I'm beyond tired! We've had a scare with my little sister who was in hospital with pneumonia and pleurisy so obviously that is a huge worry and just all-round stressful... But I'm not going into detail about that!

Something I will go into detail about was the epic experience I discussed in my previous blog post about going to see One Direction in Manchester! 31st May 2014 was the absolute best night of my entire life! We started the day off at the Trafford Center getting a little bit of shopping done, although the building is stunning I was a little disappointed because its not as as big as I thought... But still I got a few items that I have fallen in love with :) We called in nearly every shop to make sure we didn't miss anything good! I got an eye shadow palette from H&M which I was excited to try because I think high street make up can often be just as good as the high end options that break the bank. I also got a new skirt to wear for the concert because I thought it looked a little more dressed up than just jeans! I also was treat to a new pair of pink converse by my dad :)

When we'd finished shopping we decided to head to the hotel we would be staying in after the concert, when we got there we realized we'd maybe planned to set off to late as we were under the impression 5SOS would be on at 6... We were wrong... 
So we all got ready, I of course did my own hair and make up and my sisters! I used my new eye shadow palette and my Estee Lauder bronzer for the occasion! I originally did my hair in a half up half down fashion but it just wasn't staying in, so in the end I put it up in a ponytail just to get it out of the way! I got dressed into my 'Crazy Mofos' t-shirt and black skirt with my new pink converse and leather jacket! Then we set off for the stadium at 3.30 knowing the gates opened at 5.00. We got there and already the crowds were crazy! It was surreal to see that many people queuing just on one side of the arena! We head over to the merch stand, which would put a dent in my bank account even more! I got two t-shirts, one for the one direction boys and another for 5SOS, then I got a Midnight Memories flag and a flashing light. I think I got a little caught up in the excitement and spent more than I would have if I was in a normal situation...
Not looking my best but I was excited haha

The gates opened at 5.00 and we got to our seat, we couldn't have had better seats really we were facing the stage and had an excellent view without being crushed by crowds! Once we found out seats we were sat there counting down until 5 seconds of summer came on at 6.00 but then we found out that actually they were coming on at 7.45 and that One Direction didn't come on until 8.30! So we went and got some food, but the sun had gone so it was more than a little chilly!

Finally 5SOS came on and absolutely rocked it! Their set was amazing, the talent this band has is incredible in fact I think they're a little under appreciated and deserve a lot more credit and recognition.

5SOS killin it

    By this point I was more than warmed up and so ready for the boys to come on! There was a crazy Mexican wave that went all the way around the stadium, of course being my clumsy self I fell and cut my knee (typical). The screams that erupted when the boys came on stage were deafening, it was so surreal it filled me with a sense of pride and a sore throat haha. I was so distracted by my favorite song 'Little Black Dress' and its complete perfection that I forgot to record it or take picture. A mistake I am now kicking myself for! Not going to lie I am a total Narry girl (Niall and Harry for those who don't know), mainly Niall because that Irish accent and cheeky personality slays me! They're all so damn talented and I got a little choked up at songs like Little Things, Strong and Diana because they're those type of songs that just boost your confidence and make you feel good about yourself, like you're not alone.

This was one of the best nights of my life and I truly cannot put into words how fabulous it was!

What are some of your favorite experiences?
