Sound of 2015 | February Playlist


Years & Years - Real 
I've been obsessed with these guys this year so it's no wonder why they've made it into my January and February playlist and probably my March playlist to be honest. They are an electronic trio founded in London consisting of frontman and keyboardist Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and synth player Emre Turkmen. You might also recognise Olly from the silver screen. I thought I knew his face when I seen him on BBC introducing and turns out I did, from the film The Riot Club. Talented boy!



Imagine Dragons - I Bet My Life
If you haven't seen these guys, do! The first time I seen them was pure magic, I had a smile from ear to ear the whole way through their set. This is one of their newest videos, starring the amazing Dane Dehaan who I know from the film Kill Your Darlings. Me and my brother have been playing this song non stop this month, such a belter.


An oldie but a goodie. Her new single L.A.LOVE is a good wee tune too but it being released made me remember London Bridge and how much I used to love it. So glad it's back in my life, thanks fergie ferg.

I seen these guys when they were supporting Florence and The Machines and I had no idea who they were but they must have left a good impression because afterwards I gave them a good stalk and really got into their first album. This is the first song I've heard off their new album and it sounds promising!

I heard the alternative version to this on a Will Darbyshire video and fell in love, I've seriously been sending this to everyone, it's so beautiful.  

Frankie Valli - Grease 
This has always been my favourite song from the movie and I've included the video because I think it's really neat. It's even one of my favourite parts in the movie, don't even know why I love it so much.



A little bit of old mixed in with a lot of new tunes this months, slightly obsessed with Kygo remixes too.

Favourite Lush Products


I love lush as much as the next guy and girl and I've done the impossible by narrowing down some of my favourite products. Minus all the incredible bath bombs and bars obvs.

Sea Salt Shampoo 
This is a weird one when you first start using it, the texture is different to any other shampoo I've used. Once it starts to lather up though it works like a treat. It makes my hair feel thicker and stronger and leaves it smelling gorgeoussss.

Brazened Honey Face Mask
I got this for my birthday from my friend lj and I've been using it every other week since, I just love it. It smells like a bunch of fresh flowers and works so well on my skin. It brings everything to the surface and leaves you with clear skin for the next day.

Bubblegum Lip Scrub  
Can't get over how much I'm loving this product, I really thought it wouldn't do much but believe the hype. I can't imagine ever needing to purchase another one of these because it last such a long time and because of that I think it's very cheap. Tastes delicious also.   


What are your lush product must haves?

Sleek | Makeup Brand Spotlight


I've been using Sleek products for a wee while now and it's become one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands. Their products are so affordable and super good quality! 

One of the first eyeshadow products I bought was the i-Divine in Ultra Matte V2 (£7.99) I've used it so much so that the lid has broke off. These colours are perfect for night time because they are more dramatic along with some neutrals for day wear. 

Another palette I bought was the eye & cheek palette in dancing til dusk (£10) It's so handy when travelling because of the neutral and bold shades. 

Contouring was a scary concept before I bought this kit, I just had know idea how to go about it but with Kim K spilling the T I was intrigued. So I bought the face contour kit in medium (£6.49). 

The last product is the brow kit in light (£8.50) before this I didn't touch my brows but a friend changed my mind about the difference it can make to your makeup look. 

Are there any Sleek must haves that I need to know about? I will defiantly be expanding my collection!

Lisa's 30th | Cafe Vaudeville

(hannah, tash, lisa, lorna, moi, wee maggie)

Hello all, so I've just about recovered from this night out but it was 100% worth it. Before this, I hadn't been out since new year's day, that's like 5 weeks, an absolute drought in my life. I'm not a student any more that's for sure. Anywho my cousin Lisa turned the big three oh and her sister (my bffl) Tash came home for the weekend from uni. It was a fancy affair. If you haven't been to Cafe Vaudeville in Belfast, it's a Luxebar & Dining establishment with a Parisian atmosphere. I suggest you get your glad-rags on and go! We were VIP so we were upstairs at the House of Champagne drinking, you guessed it, free champagne. 



The night was perfect, pre drinks in Tash's, PK's for pre bar and taxi to Belfast. Even the taxi there and back was hilar. It was great to have Tash back for a weekend to get out with her and Lorna, my favourite girls in the world. Belfast is a beautiful city, I need to explore it more and soak up all it has to offer!


Thanks for the awesome night Lis, the hinch girls sure do scrub up well.
