• Grand Ole Opry

    I’ve been to The Grand Ole Opry!!!

    When I put together my bucket list of things to see and experience in Nashville, The Grand Ole Opry was at the top of my list. I was really happy my cousin, who I stayed with, was able to get hold of tickets when I was there. It’s a very popular show and it’s not every night there is a performance. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was sold out. I imagined it’s a popular show even amongst locals of Nashville, as it’s a privilege for country singers to perform on this stage. When we were asked who was here for the first time, surprisingly almost everyone raised their…

    My top 5 in Eurovision Song Contest 2016

    Tonight marks the first day of Eurovision Song Contest 2016. Sweden won last year, which means they’re this year’s hosts (whoop whoop!). I wish I could be in Stockholm on Saturday to see who wins but it didn’t pan out that way. I’ll enjoy trying to spot my friends in the crowd instead. I’m also looking forward to one of the middle acts, which I’ve heard will be a parody of Eurovision itself. I’ve had a chance to listen through all the songs competing and picked out my five favourites. It was very difficult, 5 out of 44 is not easy. Russia (seeded as a winner), Belarus and Hungary are…

    BBC 1Xtra Live in Leeds with Three

    Where you one of the lucky people to attend BBC 1Xtra Live in Leeds the other weekend? The event sold out quickly so I was lucky to get my hands on a ticket, being invited by Three. The hook? – try Samsungs latest phone to snap pictures and videos during the performances. I’m already using Three so I know they’re good for signal and other great offers such as free UK calls, data and texts when going abroad. It was one of the selling points convincing me to swap from EE. I love photography and mostly I use my iPhone 6 for it but my parents think their Samsung phones take equally good pictures so…

  • Paolo Nutini red and blue lightshow

    Paolo Nutini | Millennium Square

    Paolo Nutini played live at Millennium Square in Leeds and I was there to watch with my boyfriend. When me and my boyfriends first met music was one of the topics we covered (like most people on a first date?) and we found out Paolo Nutini is an artist we both listen to a lot and really like. When he announced to come to Leeds for a gig it made sense for us to go see him live. Live gigs at Millennium Square Millennium Square always has something going on for the public. Food festivals, yearly light show and of course the famous German Market around Christmas. It’s rare that…

  • The Cat Empire in red light

    The Cat Empire | Royal Albert Hall

    I’ve never been to  Royal Albert Hall in London before. It’s quite an iconic building so when I got the chance to visit I didn’t turn the offer down. Over the weekend I went together with my house mate, his family and a previous house mate of ours to see The Cat Empire take on Royal Albert Hall. Design of T Royal Albert Hall Royal Albert Hall is a gorgeous building, both from the outside as well as on the inside. I like it’s oval shape as it builds to the character. It looks rather small from the outside but that could also be depending on the angle you’re looking…
