MCM Comic Con London 2017

Hello everyone, and welcome back - I have been super excited to write this post! I also just want to explain another lack of posts this month, as my mac hasn't been able to turn on since last Monday so I haven't had a computer which sucks as I have been using it to revise but my brother has gone away so has left me his computer to use - which is super lovely of him! It has windows 10 on so I am learning how to use it.... But I am just having a break from revision and work to finally write this post!

So this post is all about MCM Comic Con, that occurred over the weekend that has just gone. I was lucky enough to go to the Sunday of the convention. It started Friday, where a few celebrities went but mainly everyone is setting up the stalls, stages and booths. Saturday is the main day when most people tend to go, it was sold out actually. However I went on the Sunday, it was still busy and by the end some of the shops were discounting everything to try and sell what they bought.

If I am honest I mainly went to Comic Con to see KJ Apa, the actor from Riverdale, however I am so glad I went as it was such a brilliant experience and I felt at home with all these people who love things as much as me or even more! My favourite thing was seeing all the cosplay outfits, some of them were amazing so much effort must have gone into them! I did not dress up, mainly because I had no idea what to go as and I had a photo op with KJ so wanted to look good...

I went to Comic Con with my Dad and brother first of all, but went with my friend Megan too - who I actually met on twitter via The Vamps, and her friend Rachel. We got there round 9:30 but weren't let in till 11, however we arrived at a perfect time as we were quite near the front of the queue so got in straight away and ran to the autograph station to buy our tickets to see KJ.

Sorry about the snapchat caption on this and some of the images, they are from my friends story from the day so I couldn't get rid of it..

The first thing we did was find the autograph area, which was the opposite end of excel to us so we did run. I left my dad and brother and went straight to that area, as they wanted food. We bought the autograph's and headed straight over, I noticed KJ straight away when I saw the ginger hair. On the table next to him was the 2 actors from NCIS: Los Angeles who I had also gone to see. They played the pair Kensi and Deeks. 

We went to find a Costa after this, had a break for food and then headed to our first panel of the day - Rebecca Breeds and Luke Mitchell. They were both from Home and Away, however I knew Rebecca from The Originals (Aurora de Martel) and Pretty Little Liars (Nicole). I knew Luke from Mavel Agents of Shield (Lincoln Campbell) however he was also in the The Tomorrow People (John Young). The panel consisted of people watching asking them questions and the person on stage asking questions and just talking to them about different things.

Next was a panel for the 2 NCIS: Los Angeles actors - Daniela Ruah (Kensi Blye) and Eric Christian Oslen (Marty Deeks). This panel was slightly different as it was just the one man on stage talking to them about different things, very random things actually. They did stray off topic many times and we learnt Daniela had an imaginary friend who was then sat in between them... Yes it got weird but they also talked about the latest season and things that happen - I won't tell you because spoilers!

Now to the main reason I went to Comic Con (oops) but my KJ Apa photograph!! The queue was honestly massive but was worth it, as it did move quite quickly. Once I was in and said 'hey' to KJ I was ready for the photo and he told me to put my chin down, so I did, said goodbye, got my bag and walked to collect my photo. Then it hit me, 'what if I had a double chin?', luckily that did not happen. It was all because of the reflection on my glasses, it happened to my friends too as we all wear them. Rachel had her photo taken 3 times, and Megan twice just because you could see the studio lights in our glasses.

The day ended with us looking around all the stores for a pop vinyl of yoda for my dad before KJ's panel at 4! In this panel it mainly consisted of the audience asking him questions all about Riverdale, himself, his life and the movie he was in - A Dogs Purpose.

Did any of you guys go? Or do you watch Riverdale / NCIS: Los Angeles?

I hope you enjoyed this post, sorry it was delayed but my mac is now hopefully going in to be fixed on saturday so there may or may not be a post next weekend but we shall see! In the mean time you can follow my social media accounts, I changed my @ on twitter so be sure to check out my page at the top. Thank you for reading and I will see you when I see you...
Love Megan x

The Vamps Middle of the Night Tour | Nottingham

If you follow me on any social media, you will have seen that I went to see the Vamps on Wednesday at the Motorpoint arena in Nottingham with some of my 'internet' friends. I have supported the Vamps since summer 2014 which is actually a really long time, especially as all the other bands I have supported since then and before have split up - such as The Wanted and Loveable Rogues. I believe this tour it was my 5th time seeing them, after Wednesday and my friend and I tried to get tickets for Birmingham's show on Friday however the cost of getting there was too much so we decided against it. However they are touring again this summer, so hopefully I can see them again then!

I thought I'd share a few photograph that i got from the night, which honestly isn't a lot as I mainly took bommerang's on instagram and videos on my snapchat - which someone complained about actually. I found it hilarious. I had previously tweeted saying that I apologised for how long my story was then when I got home my friends told me all about it. I will not get into it though, as I won't stop!

When we went to take this photograph we looked at the numbers on our tickets and realised they were all one after each other, which was weird! Mainly because I had bought my ticket separately to the girls, so it ended up being super cute!

The Vamps had 3 support acts, The Tide and New Hope Club - which is the same as last year because they are signed to the same label etc. The other support act was the amazing Sabrina Carpenter, as you know I LOVE Girl Meets World so I was super excited when they announced she was supporting them. I had her album EVOLution on repeat before I went to see her, she was brilliant - if she comes back I will be going to see her !

I am sorry about the terrible lighting in some of the photographs, however it was awful and at some points we had a bright white light shinning directly on us so we couldn't see Connor when he stood near us. 

The Setlist
  1. Wake Up
  2. Wild Heart
  3. Somebody to You
  4. Hand
  5. Paper Hearts
  6. Shades on
  7. Oh Cecilia (Breaking my Heart)
  8. Shape of You (cover)
  9. Drum Solo
  10. Time is Not on our Side
  11. Middle of the Night
  12. Risk it All
  13. Last Night
  14. Can We Dance
  15. Rest Your Love
  16. All Night 

Photo credits to Jodie - as when this happened someone really tall decided to pick that moment to stand in front of me!
Have any of you seen The Vamps live or are planning on going to the 'summer' shows? Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this! I think I will try to do something like this for every concert I go to as they are just so fun to share. Love Meg x

My Weekend in Photographs | Spring 2017

Today's post was planned for the weekend however I wasn't allowed to use my mac for 48 hours at the end of last week and have been super busy - so finally welcome to may and here is the first post of the month! I have decided to a simple post but sharing my weekend in photographs, as you can tell by the title. If you follow me on any social media you will know I had a party for my friend's 18th on saturday and did not a lot on sunday but oh well.

Don't forget to check out this months playlist on spotify - it is a mix of the support acts for the Vamps next week and my favourite songs at the moment. Hope you enjoy!! may 2017

Saturday 6th May 2017

Saturday was spent watching the latest episode of Pretty Little Liars as I hadn't managed to watch it on the Wednesday, then I was volunteering at Sue Ryder from 1-4. Before heading toWetherspoons for a few drinks before I headed to Ben's for his party. 

Sunday 7th May 2017

Sunday I went to see the new Fast and Furious with my dad and brother, which was amazing! I highly recommend it, however I wouldn't go and see it if you haven't seen any of them as this is very connected with the other movies. The movie's that are coming out this month are amazing, I saw Guardian's of the Galaxy 2 the other weekend and that was amazing like all the marvel movies! This month the new Pirates of the Caribbean comes out, which is very exciting as the last one came out in 2011 so it better be good. I still haven't seen Beauty and The Beast yet but I'm sure when it is out on DVD I will be watching it, as one of my friend's is obsessed with it! 

Hope you enjoyed this random post but I will be back with another post (either this weekend or next), get ready for a post all about when I see The Vamps next Wednesday! I am very excited to share that with you and to go. Thank you for reading and I will see you soon :)

I have had apple music since march 26th when my brother got 3 months free with his new headphones, but has a windows phone so gave it to me.

I hope you guys get round to listening to at least one of these songs, they are great and I tend to have them on repeat all the time - that is if I am not listening to High School Musical or Starstruck! Thank you for reading and I will see you next week with a post I am very much looking forward to.

My Everyday Make Up Routine | Spring 2017

A long awaited make up routine, which I have had written for ages but never got round to post it so today is the day! I actually love how it turned out today, and sadly I am not going anywhere as it is Easter Sunday and my mum is decorating the bathroom.

Before I even start doing my make up, I have been putting moisturiser on all the time but the new step is using my Mario Badescu Facial Spray with aloe herbs and rosewater before I put on my make up. The foundation I have been using, for 2 weeks I would say, is one I used when I first started wearing it in year 10. I ran out of my L'oreal one and wanted to try a different one so I resulted back to this one, as I loved it when i first got it and it has SPF in so was perfect for all the sun we were getting. 

Rimmel London: Lasting Finish Foundation
Collection: Lasting Perfection Concealer

Rimmel London: Brow This Way - Brow Sculpting Kit
Rimmel London: Brow This Way - Brow Styling Gel

Rimmel: London Stay Matte
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Collection Blush

For my eyes I have added something new, instead of just mascara and highlight. I have added in the factor of bronzer to add some definition and colour to my eyes. Mixing the bronzer with the highlight, from the Nars illuminator and Naked 2 pallete it looks great and has become new go to look.

Nars Illuminator 
Urban Decay: Naked 2, Bootycall
Maybelline NY: Lash Sensational Mascara
Smashbox Mascara: Full Exposure 

Before I the lipstick, I spray my face with the facial spray and then the setting spray to keep everything in place. The facial Spray can be used as as so many different things, on the bottle it says "Use it to set makeup, soothe your skin in dehydrating conditions, or to give your skin a quick boost anytime, anywhere."

Rimmel London: Matte lipstick - Trendsetter
Avon Setting Spray
Mario Badescu Facial Spray

So this is the final look! I took my glasses off for the photo's so you can see the look better and because the reflection on them drives me insane. The lighting was great from the windows but you could see them in the glasses, if you wear glasses you will understand this struggle too.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post!

MASSIVE Lush Haul | 2017

I have been waiting for ages to post something like this because I LOVE Lush and well I went very overboard when I went to London!! I explained the story over on my blog post called 'My Birthday Weekend', so if you don't know be sure to check that post out to understand!

Onto the post, and I think I will go through this in like sections of bath bombs, bubble bars, bath oils face masks, scrubs and then to the spray.  Quite a lot of the bath bombs are actually part of the Easter range they have a Lush so they will only be there for a limited time, if you are thinking of trying them. I'm not sure how long they are there for though.

  1. Chick 'n' Mix
  2. Metamorphosis
  3. Golden Slumbers
  4. Which Came First? 
  5. Golden Egg
  6. Mother Earth 
  7. The Comforter Bubble Bar
  8. Baa Bar Bubble Bar
  9. Double Vitality Bath Melt
  10. Pearl Massage Bar
  11. Bubblegum Lip Scrub
  12. Sunny Day Anti Static Hair Detangler 
  13. Rosy Cheeks Face Mask

This Bath bomb is of course part of the Easter range, and is called Chick 'n' Mix. It fits together perfectly but turns into 3 bath bombs. The idea is adorable, and I can't wait to try this.

Finally a black bath bomb!!! When I was there, the woman was explaining to me the idea of this bath bomb. She said that it almost explains the idea of light coming from dark, as so many bright colours come out from the middle when it is in the water. 

When I was in the Lush store we actually tried this bath bomb in one of the sinks, and it lasts for 3 minutes and produces so much glitter! I turns the water like pure gold, along with all the glitter. It was so beautiful and actually does last that long!

The idea behind this bath bomb is so random and you would have no idea unless you asked about it, but this bath bomb actually has a secret one in the middle! You can crack it onto the side of the bath and find a little bath bomb in the middle. They do have two designs for thus bath bomb, so if you don't like this pattern there is a different one. 

My friend actually got me this last year for my 17th, and when I told her about his trip she asked if I had bought it. The Golden egg is one of my favourites mainly because of the glitter but also due the smell, which is quite orange. I didn't have this out for long, as you can already see my thumb has tones of glitter on. 

The lovely team at Lush on Oxford Street were extremely kind a gave me a gift of Mother Earth, which is the Massive Bath bomb at the back. It is one of there kitchen exclusives and I am very excited to try it, however will be carefully when I drop it in as it is massive!

This is my favourite bubble bar from lush and I have repurchased this many times, can't wait to use this!

I have never got round to trying a bath melt and I am obsessed with the smell of this one, so i can not wait to try it. i have heard lots of good things about them!

The Pearl Massage bar was a gift from my Aunt, and I have never tried one of these before but when I was at Lush the woman told me all about them. So I am super excited to try it! 

The Lip scrub, was a repurchase as mine had run out. I am now on my 2nd one of it, as I bought my first one from America last year. So it lasted me over a year, which is brilliant and I am always using it before i put anything on my lips. 

I tried this in the shop have been using it all the time since I purchased it, as my hair get's crazy frizzy and well crazy at times. So I have been spraying it in my hair after I have washed it, just before I go to bed and it smells beautiful! The other day I used it on my dry hair and my friend told me how lovely my hair smelt and it does smell amazing. 

That is it for what I bought from Lush, on Oxford Street. Thank you so much to the lovely team at Lush for being amazing as always and gifting me Mother Earth, very excited to try it. Thank you for reading my blog, I hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you very soon!

March Favourites 2017

Hello everybody, I have been excited to write this post as march is one of my favourite months due it it being my birth month and also the fact we already on the 4th month of the year??!! But I have had a few new favourites this month, so of course I wanted to share them with you! Most of my favourites this month are items I picked up when I was in London, so even more the reason to share.

My first favourite of the month is a matte lipstick by MAC in the shade Whirl. I have wanted a dark nude for a while, after creating man pinterest boards with this shade in and seeing one of my friends wearing it actually. I finally decided to purchase this, from the MAC on Carnaby Street. I have mainly been wearing it when I go out rather than to school but I have been loving it, it makes a change to either my red lip or my nude lip.

Next is something I have been seeing so much on youtube and haven't been able to find in my local Urban Outfitter. When I went to London it was there, all laid out on the table - the Mario Badescu skin care range. Mum looked at me and went "go on, treat yourself!" which is exactly what I did, I got the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with aloe herbs and rosewater and I am obsessed with it!!! I have been watching Summer Mckeen's youtube videos with her talking about how much she loves it, how great it and how much she uses it and I agree with her so much. It was so worth the hype! I have been using it at least 3 or 4 times a day, after a moisturise in the morning and before my setting spray goes on, after I take my make up off and put moisturiser on. It is also great to spray once you have had a shower or work out. I have a feeling I may use this up before I next go to London so I may have to shop around online to find it.

Now onto my favourite film this month, and I haven't been to the cinema yet which is very sad as I wanted to see Logan and Beauty and the Beast but hopefully I will see them soon. In terms of films, my favourite this month has been Trolls, and I know what you are thinking? You're 18 and love trolls?? However it isn't just the movie, it's the actors and the soundtrack. I adore all of the actors in the movie and know all the words to every song off the soundtrack, mainly because it is such a happy and motivating soundtrack.

Next is a TV show and I was going to put in about the vampire diaries and how it ended on the 10th March, but I am not because if I start talking about it I may never shut up and I don't want to spoil it any way. Especially for my friends who I know still haven't watched season 7. Anyway, onto this months TV favourite and it is a show called Freaks and Geeks. Sadly there is only 1 season with 18 episodes in at 44 minutes each episode, so I did manage to watch it in a few days but I loved every second of it. It was from late 1999 to early 2000, which is old around 18 years old (same as me) but I loved all the actors in it. Some of the cast includes Sean Rogan, James Franco and Jason Segel. Putting them altogether in one cast was amazing, and they worked so well playing the characters and the story line was great! I wish they had done another season, but sadly not. The description on IMBD says "A high school mathlete starts hanging out with a group of burnouts while her brother navigates his freshman year."

Thank you so much for reading, hope you enjoyed this post! I am finally back into the swing of everything in my life (I think) so get ready for new posts either every Saturday or Sunday!
