• Blogmas: Day Nine! 5SOS Edition.

    Hiiiiiiyaaaa from a very dazed and confused Shannon! Last night I (stupidly) slept outside Radio 1 like the crazy mother I am, 5SOS are back in the country and of course my life goes up the shitter and all hell breaks loose. It was so cold, it was a very stupid decision but the things you do for Australians. I mean it was SO cold, like deadly cold. This morning we go barrier and met the lovely lads, they are honestly my favourite people on Earth (apart from my mum, dad and brother) and even though Michael was absent it was still lovely to see the rest of them. I…

  • Blogmas: Day Seven!

    Hiiiiiiya! Well done to me for sticking this our for 7 whole days, it’s a Christmas miracle. What a fricken day I’ve had god dammit. I had about half an hour of sleep last night, got up at 4:30 and was out walking the streets of London due to tubes not running til 7 – gross. 5 Seconds of Summer are back in the country so of course my life has turned into an immediate mess. We made our way to the airport (reluctantly, knowing it would be a total waste of time) and there we were amongst hundreds of other girls waiting for them to arrive. They didn’t. They…

  • My Tattoos & Their Meanings.

    Hiiiiiii! A few weeks ago I finally plucked up the courage to get permanent ink on my skin, you know…it’s literally never coming off. For about a year and a half I’d had these tattoo ideas and after much stressing and sweating I finally got them done. For one thing, the pain is literally not bad at all and that’s what I was worried about most, palms were sweaty, knees weak, arms were heavy (thank you, Eminem). But I don’t think many people apart from my pals know exactly why I got what I got, so I’m going to tell you whether you like it or not, whether you really…

  • Where We Are Tour 2014!

    Hiiiii! So this weekend my friend Libby and I travelled all the way up to Manchester to see One Direction and 5 Seconds Of Summer on the Where We Are Tour and it was very, very fun! It’s been a while since I’ve seen One Direction, the last time was April last year and since then I’ve changed my views on them a lot and stopped spending my time and effort on them so I wasn’t really excited to see them, I was mostly looking forward to watching my favourite Aussie foursome rock out on that huge stage (which was very weird as I’m used to seeing them in small…

  • What Happened This Week?!

    Hiii! I’m super crap with posting on here regularly, I have no excuse apart from lack of motivation and stuff but hopefully soon enough that will all change! This week was interesting, let’s see what some big points were… 5 Seconds Of Summer hit number 1 in the UK Top 40! Yep, I spoke about them previously (I speak about them everyday, they’re my favourite band DUH.) But they did it, they hit number 1 with She Looks So Perfect. They’re the 4th Australian artist to get a debut number 1 and the first Australian artist to get a number 1 in 14 years (Kylie had that crown, maybe they can…

  • Watch Out For 5 Seconds Of Summer!

    YES, it’s official, it is only a few more days until my favourite band ‘5 Seconds Of Summer’ release their debut UK single ‘She Looks So Perfect’. So you all need to watch out for this band, okay?! They’ve been together almost 3 years, and in that time they have blossomed into this awesome, little, Aussie band. I say little, but they’re not little at all. They did their own thing on YouTube for a while, toured Australia with Hot Chelle Rae, released their first EP in Aus (Somewhere New), toured the world with One Direction and have done many shows over here in the UK, Australia and are due…

  • 2013 Personal Highlights

    Hello! It’s been a while since I posted but once again I’ve just had a lack of motivation to post on here but as soon as 2014 comes I will be back, for sure! It is nearly Christmas which means it is almost the new year, last year I did a few of my personal highlights but this year has been so good there is no way I could put it down to a top 10 so I’m just going to go through each month – this is mainly for me to look back on and remember how good this year was for me despite the large amount of lows…

  • ‘Never Underestimate A Girls Love For Her Favourite Band’

    Hiiiii! As I spent Friday evening/Saturday morning at Heathrow airport waiting for 4 of my favourite boys to arrive in the UK (5 Seconds Of Summer) it made me think about how much time and effort I put into bands. I will spend hours on end waiting around for a band and half the time I gain nothing but a wave from it, why do I do it? That’s the question everyone always asks me, well I’m going to tell you why myself and many, many others do things like that! It’s not about meeting a band to say you’ve met them for me, it’s about being around the people…

  • Big Steps…

    I once touched up on the subject in a piece of school work about how famous people can get through the power of YouTube. Since I can remember I’ve wanted to make a YouTube channel, unfortunately I’ve never had the confidence to do so, I’m hoping one day I will! ANYWAY, I’ve always watched YouTubers and admired them…they all are so funny and talented in their own ways. Even if their talent is just making people laugh. Over the last couple of years there’s been a boom in British YouTubers. The likes of Jack Harries (JacksGap) and his twin brother Finn, Marcus Butler (MarcusButlerTV), Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlogTV) and two best…

  • Take Me Home Tour

    Well, the night finally came (after a year of waiting), it was the day I would be seeing One Direction on their world wide tour. It felt even more special because I was attending the first day of the tour and I just felt like this was the start of something massive and I was there to experience it. I was sat in block B2, row B and as I walked down the stairs to my seats I was hyperventilating because not only was I fairly close to the front stage, I was about 5 rows away from the second stage – HOW EXCITING.  They had two support acts, one…
