I finally have a second to breathe, sit down and write about this weekend without any interruptions. So basically, I’ve had this weekend planned for a long time. In September, me and my two best friends bought tickets to go see one of my favourite artists, Jacob Whitesides. The day finally came around, last Friday.
If anyone knows the struggle of going to concerts when you live in the countryside then you’ll understand this post. Concerts are so much more of a big deal when you live so far from the venue. On Friday morning, we ditched school and got on a bus for 3 and a half hours to Dublin. We walked around all day, in the rain, our clothes and our feet soaking. We stayed that night with my friends sister who lives in Dublin, and we got changed there. Then we went to the concert.
Jacob Whitesides does this thing for his tours, where the first 25 people who buy tickets get free meet and greet. We were in the first 25 so we got to meet him! I was so nervous. I had never met someone who was actually famous before. I’ve been listening to his music since 2013, it was so strange to see him in person, and have him give me a hug. He was so so sweet though and even more beautiful in person than he is on a screen. The concert was amazing. His voice in angelic, and he just had so much energy and looked like he was having such a good time.
Afterwards, we wandered around Dublin, just people watching and enjoying the Friday nightlife. Back in the apartment, we had a pizza and talked about the show and went to sleep.
The next morning we got the bus back at 10 o’clock, which didn’t seem early the night before, but was painfully early when we had to drag our tired bodies to the bus station. The bus journey home felt so long too. When we finally got back I barely had time to have a cup of tea and I was off again, to a school football match. Unfortunately our team lost but it was a good match nevertheless.
Straight after, I rushed home and got ready to go out, as it was a friends birthday. By then I was exhausted but I refused to let the fatigue get me down. I went out anyways and we had such a fun night.
This morning I woke up, with absolutely no voice but I suppose thats just a sign of a well-spent weekend!
What did you get up to this weekend? Did it leave you without a voice too?
Also, I highly recommend all of you, dropping whatever you’re doing right now, and listening to Jacob Whitesides music. He’s so talented and his music deserves to be played more. Have an amazing week!

It would be invisibility for sure. There’s a nosey part of me that would just love to listen to peoples conversations without them seeing me. Also you could sneak into concerts and onto airplanes without paying so..?
2. Cats… or dogs?
This is awful because I love both! But I have a golden retriever who is my whole heart and I love her so much I’d feel like I was betraying her by saying cats lol. So dogs.
3. If you had a time machine, and you could go to any time, future or past, and in any place, Africa, America, England, anywhere. Where would you go and why?
This is such a cool question. I really don’t know though, maybe like New York City in the 20’s or something like that. But also Ancient Rome would be amazing. But I’d definitely go to the past, I’m not sure I’d like to see the future. Whatever will be will be.
4. What is your dream home?
This is a boring answer, but from someone who’s lived in the countryside all their life, my dream home is literally any kind of apartment in a city. But when I get old I’d love to live by the sea somewhere.
5. Favorite day of the week and why?
Saturday for sure, because it’s a day without school or responsibilities and you can do whatever you want.
Hello blog 🙂
Other amazing Christmas movies
Before I start making excuses for no posts this week (here comes the excuse) I’ve been very busy with school and I just today, got a new phone. Yay for higher quality pictures!
So because I couldn’t do the post I was going to do (still to come this week) I thought I’d just do a little update to let you know that I am working on new stuff.
Now that I’ve got a higher quality camera, I can’t wait to start working on blogposts I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I’m excited to start taking better pictures and therefore making better blogposts! I hope I’ll be able to start posting twice a week on here and I’m going to make time even when my school schedule gets a little crazy. I love this blog and there’s so many fun posts yet to come. Watch this space!
I tend to stay away from hairdryers and straightners most days. My hair is naturally wavy and sometimes frizzy so I don’t blow-dry it. I prefer to let it dry itself. As for straighteners and curlers etc, overuse of these do damage to your hair, so do your hair a favour and take a break! If you’re likely to use a straightener every day, give it a rest and try to use it maybe twice or 3 times a week tops.
If you needed another reason, coconut oil is usually only about €3 and lasts months.
This one, although it sounds irrelevant, is super important. Eating properly is crucial to give your hair the right amount of vitamins it needs to grow and be strong. Eat a balanced diet and include lots of Vitamin C, which strengthens hair. Vitamin C can be found in fresh fruit like oranges and other citrus fruits like grapefruits or lemons.
