april favourites

i have been really bad on the blog front but i’m not gonna lie life’s pretty boring!! but in April i tried a couple of new shower products, no new make up products as i’m on a make up buying ban!

since i got blond put in my hair i have been a mega “i-love-my-hair” girl and i try my hardest to take care of it. i get in the shower with every intention of washing my hair, then i think of how long it takes to dry and style and change my mind. it’s a lot of effort, it tires me out to be honest. i probably wash my hair 2-3 times a week. i’ve never been one to wash my hair every day cause that just ruins your hair.

i always try different shampoos, conditioners and treatments etc, and i’ve tried a few specifically for blond hair, and when i was in Boots i seen the John Freida Sheer Blond Go Blonder range and bought the shampoo and conditioner.
these products contain citrus extracts and chamomile, and these ingredients help to maintain the healthy colour in your hair, by tightening the cuticles and strengthening the hair shaft. for all shades of natural, colour-treated or highlighted blonde hair, which means you don’t need to have naturally blond hair, which i don’t. a few people have reviewed the product online and claimed it’s allowed them to get their hair coloured every 8 weeks instead of 6 weeks, some other people have claimed it hasn’t worked at all. i don’t really understand why it works on some and not others, but i can say it’s not gave me colour so i can get my hair done after longer breaks, but it’s made my awful roots look less bad. another thing i have noticed, i just noticed tonight as i was washing my hair, i go through conditioner like nobody’s business but i feel like this has lasted really long, so i was definitely paying the price for the quantity. i think the formula is quite concentration, so i feel like after the first few times i learned that i don’t need to use as much as i do with other brands.

i am really loving all American TV right now, i’m so wired into Gossip Girl, Desperate Housewives, 90210, 2 Broke Girls (new on E4 – AMAZING) but last week the winner was totally and completely Glee – Wanna Dance With Somebody. the amazing tribute episode would have done the late Whitney Houston proud. i was so impressed. when i seen they were doing a Whitney tribute i was a bit unsure and thought “who can do it as well as Whitney” but i love love loved it. my favourite was Santana and Rachel singing “So Emotional”. i loved that a couple of the songs had their own spin, with a different beat and change of the words (Dance With Somebody).
i have a total and complete girl crush on Santana, and i absolutely hate Rachel, but i really enjoyed this one. Also, normally i can’t watch Kurt on TV but he absolutely KILLED “I Have Nothing”, he was amazing!!! i just loved it, and i think i may have watched it about 3 times since thursday and it’s saved on the Sky+ planner for more screenings!

 this has been a short favourite blog, it’s just that i haven’t had much going on. i’m planning the “30 photos” for June myself. I’m going to find a scavenger photo hunt for the month and try find at least one each day! it’ll be a fun one, i hope!

Rihanna – Loud tour.

Published October 12, 2011 by laurrx

RIHANNA IS A FULL ON BABE.
just saying.

Joking! i hate when people say “just saying”.

I went to see Rihanna tonight at the SECC. it’s the first time i have seen her and i must admit, i LOVED IT.  she is a fab performer and has an amazing voice. i went through a short phase of having a really strong dislike towards her and i really dont know why? but recently i have been loving all her stuff! her new song with Calvin Harris – We Found Love – is an absolute TUNE! Calvin Harris supported her and he is my new favourite DJ. i am currently downloading all his songs i dont have.

It was a standing concert (well there were seats but we were standing) and my feet are aching so bad right now. but it was so worth it!she came out in a pink tank and i was super excited! the set was amazing and the set list was amazing!! she sang “Let Me” which is right up at the top of my favourite Rihanna songs…actually probably one of my favourite songs ever list.

She sang “Take A Bow” near the end and i was stunned when she didnt actually have to sing until the line “..and the award for the best lie goes to you…”. i couldnt imagine how amazing it would feel to have an audience sing basically your entire song back to you. she even looked so thrilled and genuinely looked like she appreciated the fact. this video isnt that good of quality but i wasnt taking the videos to see, just to listen and re-live the whole concert!

i know, i know, the quality argh!! i hate the quality of iphone pics at gigs and nights out sometimes. but this is the view we got. shes gorgeous. she wore a lovely two piece to start and it was so colourful and glittery etc. and if you know me my two fave things are colour and glitter!

Rihanna covered Prince – Darling Nikki… in fact she done a short SEX-tion in the concert. She sand Darling Nikki, S&M, Let Me and Skin (where she brought a fan up and straddled him!!!). there was chains and leather involved and song lyrics including “masturbating with a magazine” and “almost there, so baby don’t stop what you’re doing.” i am 21 so these lyrics dont phase me much…but i was jamming away next to a full on CHILD. my cousin aged 12 loves Rihanna and if i was with her, i wouldnt have been able to bare these moments. However, again, at aged 21 it didnt bother me and i still loved it!

her very last song was Umbrella and kim turned round to me and said “have you got a brolly??” i laughed and said no. then about 30 seconds into the song there were umbrellas up in the arena. it was hysterical!!

so right now i’m gonna search all her albums and download all her songs, i am gay for her now.

hugs and concerts
