Shirts – Primark – £12
I don’t usually buy anything from Primark, it’s one of those shops where they either have exactly what you want or nothing at all but when entering today, I couldn’t resist picking up these two shirts. They’re so floaty and colourful and not for a bad price either. I’ve noticed that Primark are putting their prices up, they need to make sure they don’t get ahead of themselves!
The 1975 CD – HMV – £4.99
HMV has gone awesome. I don’t know why or what has happened for it to go awesome but the one in my town has had a total transformation since the scare of it closing down. They now sell Vinyls in-store, have a huge choice of artists that aren’t particularly mainstream and are selling CDs from independent record labels. They’ve also started hosting gigs from local bands and have even had Goldblade perform there.
Today I purchased The 1975’s album. I’ve been aware of them for a long time, they’ve played at festivals I’ve been to and even ones hosted in my home town but I’ve never taken time to actually sit down and listen to them. It wasn’t until T in the Park was on TV that I heard them properly for the first time and since then they’ve become this summer’s soundtrack. I feel like the album is litteraly a compilation of their singles with a few extras thrown it. Every song is ace!
No17 Blusher Brush – Boots – £2.99
I finally got round to buying a blusher brush today after needing one for a very long time. It’s amazing how expensive they are which did have a big impact on the brush I chose. This one was only £2.99 and compared to £10+ that the other ones were selling for it was pretty cheap – I’ll just have to see how long it lasts for…
3. Have you ever fantasised about changing your first name? To what?
Yes! Probably to Tabitha. Then it could be shortened to Tabby which sounds like Abi. At the moment though my friend calls me Bee which which I kind of like. Just different versions of my name I suppose!
4. When do you get your best ideas?
At night when I’m in that twilight zone and I’m not really thinking of anything but at the same time it’s as though all my thoughts in the day come together, mixing up ideas and producing things I don’t think I’d ever think of if it wasn’t for being in that state.
It’s either then when ideas come to me or when I’m least expecting it. Whenever I try and think of something to write or draw I can never think of anything good but when I’m not focused on anything a load of thoughts come into my head at once, it can be quite annoying!
5. Have you ever had chance to meet your heroes?
It depends what you class as a hero. I’ve been lucky enough to meet people I admire, The Charlatans, The Heartbreaks, The Gramotones. Then there are the people I look up to like John Robb and Sarah Lay who are amazing journalists. With John Robb coming from a background pretty much like my own it lets me set my aspirations high!
But the one hero that I’d really like to meet is the Doctor who saved my life when I was two years old! I know I have kind of met him when I was a baby, but I’ve never had the chance to shake his hand and thank him. If it wasn’t for him my life would be soo different to how it is now… I might not have even made it to ten years old, let alone eighteen. I have a lot to owe this guy and I hope that someday I’ll be able to meet him and let him know how grateful I am.
