yesterday i went to london, stayed at the hilton hotel- swaaaanky!

look! look! one of those infamous CHRISTOPHER KANE AT TOPSHOP dresses!!

today i went to oxford. AND IT WAS AMAZING! if i can get in to do classical civilisation at oxford, i would be the happiest woman in all of england. oxford is beautiful.

Andrew Beverley treated me to some gorgeous new dresses in London, (that i'm so chuffed about i've had to showcase on my blog) and a new jacket that i didn't photograph, but i'm sure, knowing me, it will be photographed at some point.


i went to see Los Campesinos! with my good, and aforementioned, friend matt on monday night, they were absolutely amazing. i would recommend that anyone should try and catch one of their shows. both of the support acts were really top notch, Sparky Deathcap and Copy Haho. Copy Haho were just my thing, almost Johnny Foreigner-esque, kind of melodic indie hardcore. Sparky Deathcap is also part of the live Los Campesinos! set up, whether that's due to convenience or a permanent fixture I neither know or care, either way they were BLOODY AMAZING.

i also met gareth (the lead singer) of Los Campesinos! he's actually a genuine sweetheart, although post-gig sweaty-face photos are always grim.

to my favorite liar, to my favorite scar: "i could have died with you"

For the past four years, there have been a couple of bands and artists that I have never ceased to listen to enjoy, that I could always (and often) put on and adore. One of those bands was Fall Out Boy.
And I don't care that they're uncool and too mainstream, I love them.
Fall Out Boy soundtracked my teenage angst, but also ever romance, and even my first kiss. I shit you not, straight after my first kiss I actually went home and listened to Take This To Your Grave and felt GREAT.

Mostly though, and quite importantly, they also played an active part in every imagining I had, when I needed a better reality to escape to in my head. As cheesy as it is, when I was fourteen, I used to pretend me and Pete Wentz were married and we were in this cool clique with Patrick Stump. And yes I know it's cringey. But I think I did this because the lyrics just got me, honestly, lyrically they're up their with the greats. And when I listened, and listen, to Fall Out Boy I didn't feel so alone, and I feel like some bassist, born and raised on the other side of the world, just totally gets how I am feeling a lot.

Basically, finding out that Believer's Never Die is the last Fall Out Boy album, at least for a long, long while, has cut me up real bad.

love u pweezy <3
