There is nothing I love more than discovering new artists, so I thought I’d start sharing some of my favourites on here and not in just a typical ‘top 10’ post. The first in this ‘mini-series’ is pop/punk band, Against The Current.
Being a media student and aspiring journalist, I’ve whipped up a number of different articles over the past year and a half. Be it for assessment purposes or for my blog, there’s no denying that I love to write and there is nothing that gives me more of a buzz than having something I’ve written published on a platform other than my own blog. I’ve been lucky enough to have had a number of different pieces published since starting my studies in the media, so I thought I’d share a few of my ‘publishing tips’ with you fellow writers.
In the light of recent events circling pop singer Kesha’s plea to leave her six-album record contract with Sony following claims against producer Dr. Luke drugging and raping her, people have been both showing their support of the ‘Tik Tok’ singer and have also been highlighting that this behaviour towards females within the music industry isn’t new.
After months and months of anticipation, the wait is finally over! ‘Pride & Prejudice & Zombies’ hit cinemas on the 11th of February in the UK and after being eager to see it for so long, I ensured that I saw it in that first week. With an all-star cast including Lily James, Douglas Booth and Matt Smith, expectations were held high.
2011 was the year that I saw All Time Low for the first time at the O2 Academy. Five years later and I was standing in the Hydro jumping around like a lunatic to ‘Lost In Stereo’ for the 6th time. I’m not shy in letting the world know that this pop/punk four-piece are my favourite band, and artist in general, to see live. With the exception of their co-headliner with You Me At Six last year, I have seen them every time they have came to Scotland – be it Glasgow or Edinburgh – since that first cold January evening.
Back in December I posted my first ever ‘what I eat in a day.’ Over two months later I’m finally getting round to putting together another. My apologies if you were looking forward to this mini-series. My only excuse is that I’ve had a lot of other things that I’ve wanted to talk about and felt that my daily consumption of food could wait.
Weetabix with banana & honey
If I’m not eating porridge for breakfast, I’m most likely eating Weetabix. Most people may find this a rather bland cereal to eat, but like with porridge, I love it for the fact that you can be really creative with your toppings. The banana & Weetabix combo is simple but a favourite, however I decided to change it up a bit by adding some honey. I have to admit that before this week I had never tried honey before. I’ve had honey flavoured things but not pure honey. I bought some last week as I was making Ella Woodward’s (Deliciously Ella) sweet potato pancakes so I have an almost full bottle to get through! Good thing I’m enjoying it. This was devoured alongside my morning coffee.
