Paramore 13.11.10

So as you can tell from the title this post is about the Paramore concert at The 02 on Saturday the 13th November 2010. So I am an avid fan of Paramore, I absolutely love them, their music is amazing and Hayley Williams is one of the best female lead singers of any band I've heard (oop controversy lol) and in the last couple of years I have been lucky enough to go see them in concert, and without fail they give the best show of their lives every time. My test of a real band is to hear them sing live and then that's when I know they are truly talented. And I can say Paramore is the only band I prefer live than on CD, don't get me wrong on CD they are sublime, but live you get to hear the true strength of Hayley's voice and the energy the whole band emits to stadium of 12,000 people. I mean at one point I thought the stadium was gonna cave in with how hard and how much everyone was jumping up and down, the frickin' floor was rumbling like just before the start of a Volcano lol. So I went with Leanne (my bestie) and my mate Zeke (she had never seen them live before and her reaction was pretty much the same as mine the first time I went, screaming, sheer and utter, uber excitement haha). This concert was like an early/late birthday present when I purchased it because my birthday was on the 9th November and then the show on the Saturday but obviously purchased the ticket wayyy in advance.

The opening acts for the show were fun. (who I have never heard of before and never hope to hear from again haha) and B.O.B (who I also love and love more now since seeing him live, he is such an energetic performer...he was ah-mazing). Needless to say when he and Hayley performed "Airplanes" the whole arena erupted. It was one of the best shows I had ever been to, and the weather held up, cos last year when we went it was snowing, there was ice (the road was like one long continuous ice rink lol), wind it was horrible, but this year was cold but no snow (Y). We were sat closer than last year but still not close enough for excellent quality pics but they were still OK, you can actually see Hayley all be it a little blurry lol but WAY better than last year.

So I'm going to stop rambling cos I could write for ages about this :) here are some pics from the show...

Halloween!!!!!! 30.10.10

Yes, so so so so so so so so LATE!!!!!!!

But I really wanted to put up a few pics from Halloween up on here :) It was a great night, lots of laughs were had. I won best costume that night, mainly because of my make up and accessories and the simplicity that was my costume, not over done or extra, just right haha :) I got the cutest tiara as my prize. Good times. Obviously Leanne should of won but she was the one throwing the party, so she couldnt win. I did her make up which was kind of fun, a bit stressful cos we were strapped for time, but I think it turned out OK, she went as a zombie barbie.

Me and my two best friends Leanne and Kimberley (3 musketeers lol)

Sleek Limited Edition palette: CIRCUS!

As this was limited edition, there is no longer a description on the website. But this palette does NOT disappoint. I love love love this palette, the colours are fantastic. This is one of my go to palettes for when I want to do a dramatic look. I love how bright and fun this palette is, and really embodies the name it was given.

The colour pay off is great, this was definitely a good purchase. If had anything to complain about, it would be that I wish the baby pink and yellow were a bit more pigmented.

This palette gets a 5 out of 5 from me :D

Thanks for sticking with me through all these old palette reviews but I love them, so I wanted to put these reviews up for people that don't own them or are thinking about buying them.

My next post will be my Halloween post like a month late, haha, but I really wanted to show what I was wearing for Halloween especially as I won best costume :D

Sleek Palette Review: CHAOS

Here is the 5th installment of my sleek palette reviews. This review is going to be on the Chaos . The Chaos palette is a permanent palette alongside Sunset, Storm, Original and Acid.

"The Chaos i-Divine palette comprises of 12 intense and high impact shades with a matte finish for the daring...and trend focused individual."

The Chaos palette isnt one of my favourites, but it has some descent colours. I feel the top layer of pastel colours are better on a lighter skin tone. Now the bottom layers I like, they come out well on my skin and I was pleased with the colour pay off. If you want to create some softer looks and not so dramatic this is definitely the palette for you.

I give this palette 3 out of 5.

Next up Circus palette ...
