Arctic Monkeys @ The O2, London, 09.09.2018

Concerts, Music

Last Sunday my dream came true. I saw Arctic Monkeys live.

We sang together 505 and Do I Wanna Know. Four years ago I listened to these songs for hours, feeling every word and line with my heart. On Sunday I cried during both of the songs. And they even invited Miles Kane to play with them a song about all that miles away, imagination, and arms “around my neck”. Arctic Monkeys have always been for me about London and love. Alex Turner really knows how to tug at my heartstrings.

Birchbox UK: review (May’18 & July’18)

Makeup & Skincare

After few months of following on social media I finally subscribed to one of the most popular beauty boxes in the UK – Birchbox.

Most important, I liked the idea of getting and trying new skincare and makeup products from different brands, including well-known names like Rituals… and Lumene, and not spending long hours in Boots while selecting essentials – I literally spend an hour once selecting a sun cream! Also, since I moved to London and throw away a lot of my cosmetics, I needed an update to my makeup bag.

As Birchbox quite often has pretty good offers for new subscribers, I used a promo code to receive a July box plus a surprise mystery box from previous months. So I got two beauty boxes with 10 new products for only £12.95!

Hampstead Heath

London

Escape busy streets of metropolis and get lost in natural wonders of Hampstead Heath – one of the largest and most ancient parks is London. A perfect place for lazy Sunday and a picnic with friends while enjoying a breathtaking view of the city🌿if you like active lifestyle, you can run up and down the hill, play tennis, swim, and enjoy workout outdoors. For me as a fangirl, this place is remarkable also because of the fact that a lot of celebrities are living near by, including Highgate resident and my most favorite actor James McAvoy😏

Placebo @ Royal Festival Hall, London, 17.06.16

Concerts, Music

Placebo is an important part of myself for already twelve years, which also makes a half of my life. With no doubt their music has constructed me as a person, and I can find any existing spectrum of emotions in it, maybe even more. It’s cosmic.

Brian and Stefan are not simply musicians – after so many years, four concerts, and meeting in person, to me they are like siblings-in-law in the marriage to music. There are no words ever to describe how blessed I feel. Yesterday I was united with music, love, and universe, going completely mad with every single song. And oh God, they started the gig with Pure Morning……

P.S. …I also touched the setlist…

#fangirl in London: BBC Maida Vale Studios

Fangirl, London, Music

Located few minutes away from London’s picturesque Little Venice, BBC Maida Vale Studios is a complex of seven BBC recording studios, and home to BBC Symphony Orchestra. Since 1946 studios have been used for recording of thousands classical and popular music sessions. Hundreds of famous artists have visited the studios to perform on BBC broadcast channels, including my favorites Arctic Monkeys, Florence Welch, David Bowie, The White Stripes, and The Beatles.

THE ROYAL WEDDING!

While the world is watching you cannot miss an opportunity to celebrate it in style. Your perfect wedding outlook should be meticulously planned. For me it’s not about being dressy and classy, but also about finding a middle between individual and trendy. Thus, I am going for a snow white Любовь (Love) shirt with cloud grey tulle skirt and classic Chanel crossbody bag as an addition. #teammegan all prepared!

Of course, your look isn’t finished without makeup. Play with nude shadows, eyeliner, and soft strawberry daiquiri color or go for smoky eyes, red lipstick, and blush – don’t be afraid to apply a little bit more than usual, as the day ahead would be very long! And, of course, don’t forget about your favorite perfume 😉

Now be ready for a long day of fun and celebration of love! Shine bright like a diamond on Meghan’s ring. However, even if you are the best wedding guest one can ever wish about, don’t forget about the most important people at the ceremony – the bride and the groom. Treat them with care and respect – you should remember that it’s probably the best day of their life, while on the same time being extremely stressful.

Additional requirements: commemorative mug for the afternoon tea (Earl Grey with milk), biscuits, scones or Victoria sponge, a glass of prosecco, Union Jack flag, TV and/or Internet broadband.

Sending out love and all best wishes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the wedding day!

P.S. I am all prepared to catch the wedding bouquet from Hackney…
