Reliving Teenage Dreams, Sunshine and Game of Thrones

So here's the second part of my previous post!! (I told you it was a lot!!)

Saturday 22nd March

I fell in love with a little band called Fallout Boy when I was first introduced to them in 2006, I was 12 and the boys had released From Under the Cork Tree the year before and it was the first time i'd really listened to anything that wasn't Busted or Mcfly! I quickly became obsessed and since then they've been a constant go to band whenever I felt I needed to be a little bit nostalgic (quite often to be honest!) they will forever be a special band for me having got me through some tough years (cliche as hell I know but so, so true!) along with some other very special bands!
Anyway! Despite my intense love I was never able to see them live and on Saturday 22nd of March my dream of seeing them perform came true. It took me 8 years but it was so worth it!

Dress - Doc Martens
Socks - Primark
Jacket - New Look
Shoes - Doc Martens
Bag - Oasis

Before the gig myself, my friend Becca (Check out her YouTube channel here) and her boyfriend went and got pizza at Bier Halle which is possibly my favourite place for pizza in Glasgow city centre! I got the BBQ Meatball Pizza and it was ridiculously delicious!

(Just looking at this picture makes my mouth water…hmm…I can almost taste it…Aaaah!)

After this and saying goodbye to Declan, Becca and myself jumped back on the low level out to The Hydro to join the hoards of adoring FOB fans. We had a slight difficulty with how young everyone looked and that the chances were they had only heard of them since Save Rock and Roll was released…. But we got forgot all about that when we stepped into the ginormous hall that is The Hydro! We couldn't quite believe just how big the place was!!! 
The first band was a band from Denmark called New Politics, I wouldn't necessarily go out and buy their album but boy can the lead singer dance!!! Half way through one of their songs he chucked down the mic and started break dancing! At this point Becca and myself were a little disappointed in the lack of enthusiasm from the crowd and it continued when the next support hit the stage. We were really surprised with this since it was The Pretty Reckless! Taylor Momsen is a bit of a style inspiration for me, I just love her effortless rock chick style! Unfortunately the crowd around us didn't really seem to share our enthusiasm, nobody even stood up!
Although as soon as the lights went down again for FOB coming onto the stage (in full Young Blood outfits, balaclavas included!) the crowd went wild!! Everyone jumped up and went mental as the band opened with The Pheonix!
The whole night was amazing and I hope I am able to see them again, standing this time though!!

(Look how massive the place was!! And this wasn't even the whole hall!!)

Sunday 23rd March

For the first Sunday in a very very long time my friend Jen was off work so myself, Lydia and Jen decided to go a walk in the sunshine with Lydia's beautiful poodle Monte.
The weather was stunning and so was the walk! Below are a mixture of pictures taken with my iPhone and my Nikon D3000

Monday 24th March

After two days of doing nothing except going to the gym in the morning I decided to pamper myself a little while re-capping Game of Thrones seasons 1 - 3! I loooove Game of Thrones, it's such an addictive show and definitely my favourite show around at the moment. Team Targaryen!!! (I'm slightly in love with Daenerys)

I decided to start with a bath with my Lush Honey Bee bath bomb and episode 1 of season 1 go GoT. Season 4 starts in 8 days (Counting? No i'm not counting at all!!) 

Aaaah, I'm obsessed…..Send help?!
