#FridayFive: Five Lifestyle Changes I’m Making

With every new year, new month, new job, new city or new anything, I always love an excuse to make new goals or to make some changes. It’s always a good time to assess where you are, your lifestyle situation and current situation and think about the changes you can…

Gig Review: Lewis Capaldi, Croxteth Park

My gig reviews are getting quite repetitive. Apart from Fleetwood Mac, it seems all the acts I’ve recently seen are ones that I’ve already seen live before. Westlife, Picture This and now Lewis Capaldi. I just wish I had started writing these reviews a lot earlier as I’ve seen a…

The Leaving of Liverpool

There’s a box of tissues sat next to me as I type this. I’m thinking I’ve played it too safe and may have been wiser having two boxes. This post was due to be published on the 6th of July, my original move out day. Then I pushed that back…

Gig Review: Westlife, M&S Bank Arena

I wish I knew the exact age I was when I went to my first Westlife concert, but I can tell you that I was very young and was made to go to at least 12 more Westlife concerts afterwards. It seemed that every Christmas, Santa would have Westlife tickets…

Gig Review: Picture This, Botanic Gardens

Last week I attended my third Picture This gig in the space of 12 months. From June 2018 only knowing their famous ‘Take My Hand’ song to June 2019, pushing my way to the front of the crowd to sing every word of every song. I definitely caught the Picture…

How to Earn a Spot at Glastonbury

A few weeks ago, I read an article from NME that was in response to an interview with James Arthur. In his interview with This Morning, James Arthur was debating why X Factor acts didn’t seem to be taken seriously as musicians and why no X Factor winner has ever…

Gig Review: Fleetwood Mac, RDS Arena

I’ve had this on my bucket list for quite some time and sitting here typing this review still doesn’t seem real. Did I actually see Fleetwood Mac perform live?? Stevie Nicks… in the flesh?? Yes, yes I did and it’s a concert I’ll remember for a very long time. I…

My Recipe for Exam Success

As the university year comes to an end, I thought it the best time to attempt the final Pro Plus challenge. The challenge is to come up with my best fuel-filled meal that can keep me energised and my brain ticking as exam season comes around. You can check out…

Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent…

…might be the name of Lewis Capaldi’s debut album, but it is also describing myself at this very moment in time. Last Friday I finished university forever. So you would think, almost a week on, that I would be swinging from the chandelier, feeling on cloud nine and filled with…

Is It Time to Give Up Blogging?

I don’t know if it’s the stress of final year, the pressure of this dissertation or the fact that I’ve been sat in this coffee shop for the past six hours and being very close to putting my head through the window (or lack of Diet Coke for five weeks)…
