Glastonbury 2011 Highlights

Welp, I was one of those unfortunate souls who didn't manage to snag myself a ticket to Glasto this year, and I have to say... I am in such awe of those bitches who managed to go.

It may be all fun and games but unfortuinately a sad incident did happen this year; friend and political ally to Nick Cameron, Christopher Shale passed away at the venue. He was missing and found in one of the toliets. Eep!

But moving back onto the festival itself, I have spent several hours of my life the past few days watching several highlights and loving every minute of what I was watching!! Despite the weather being typically British and bi-polar, my friends who went all had an immense time. What more fun could you have? wellies, rain macks, sunglasses, mud, camping, camp fires, beer and live bands?! All in one huge arena!!

Some of my favourite bands and music to my ears (and eyes) were:

  •  Biffy Clyro (half nekkid Biffy! Need a girl say more...??)
  • Ed Sheeran (singing "A Team" which was a MOTW in a previous post!)
  • Jessie J (although slightly dissapointed with her album, that girl can belt out a song or two!)
  • Janelle Monae
  • Pendulum (bringing back memories of my youth and how I used to rave)
  • Tinie Tempah (while some say he's not amazual, he always makes me want to get up on my feet)
  • Warpaint (singing "Undertow")
And then... Beyonce happened. I have to admit, I'm not a massive B-girl fan. But she was really stunning during her performance. And look at that body and shimmer shimmer outfit working the Pyramid stage!!

There was definately a real something about her. I have to say Beyonce.. Well done, you were definately awesome! Catch Beyonce's Glasto experience highlight here!

Now to find my wellies in preparation for next year...

Music Of The Week - Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Oops. I've let myself down and neglected my little blog by juggling too many things currently in my life.And watching all the highlights of festivals I'm envious of and jealous I didn't manage to snag a ticket or two to. Sorry blog. I'll make it up to you with this song I've had on my playlist for weeks, though.

It's called "Trouble" by a group called Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs from Oxford. Quirky little song, quirky little video. Unfortunately there's no dinosaurs that I saw in the video, but hope you guys find it enjoyable:

Music Of The Week - Wolfgang Gartner

I know I am lacking in posts lately. It's been very busy in the house and my little shoe life due to a happy occasion that was my brother's wedding! It was a beautiful little day despite the rain (and mud getting caught in pretty shoes and heels) and I'm so happy for them.

My MOTW is posted early as although the wedding is done, the celebrations are not! We have another day of doing a traditional ceremony tomorrow to celebrate.

This week's song is called "Illmerica" by American producer/DJ, Wolfgang Gartner (aka Joey Youngman). He's also remixed and mingled with the likes of Will.I.Am, Timbaland, Tiesto and other big guns! The video's... Kinda interesting! It's like a crazy history lesson and if it was, it would've definately made school so much more interesting:

Enjoy! I need to get some beauty sleep and prep myself for another day of eating and drinking.

Music Of The Week - Skunk Anansie

I used to love love love Skunk Anansie when I was younger. A London band formed in 1994, disbanded in 2001 and reformed again in 2009. Maybe I was just an angsty child, but I've had a re-found love for Skin and the band after feeling nostalgic hearing some old favourites the other day! Their current single is "God Loves Only You" and there's something quite "poetic" about it:

And some old favourites... "Secretly"

And an absolute old favourite "100 Ways To Be A Good Girl"

Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do and did!

Chanel Stole My Work!

So here I am flicking through 125 Magazine and there's a few pages on Chanel's new look. Well! I have to say... It's a little close to home! For those who know me and some of my work, you will understand. For others that haven't seen it, I will explain.

Welp, this is Chanel's new look:

I do actually like the colour pallete on the eye make up and I always like dark coloured clothing. But wait! I think a young lady may of done something similar on a shoot late 2009 and an entry for ELLE magazine's competition...

See the similarities!? I mean... All they had to do was ask. And hire me and the team I worked with that day.

Now this is the problem; do I ring up the big guns at Chanel and demand something, or suck up and ask for a job and force them to love me?
