Radio 104.5 Birthday Show

Hey people! Last weekend I went to the Radio 104.5 Birthday Show day one and I wanted to tell you all about it! I’ve been to a few concerts before, but this was my first time ever attending any sort of music festival and although it wasn’t as crazy or exciting as Coachella or Firefly, it was still pretty cool!

I didn’t have great seats, I was actually on the lawn so I wasn’t close at all. Still, I found this just as satisfying as a typical general admission concert because I always have such a hard time seeing past people’s heads, and at least on the lawn I had a clear view of the stage. Unfortunately, it was a poor day for a concert. It was raining all day and was extremely muddy and chilly. I missed a lot of the performers, but I did get to see Fitz and the Tantrums, the 1975, Empire of the Sun, and Bastille.

Fitz and the Tantrums sound amazing live, literally identical to the album. I really enjoyed the performance and honestly just listening to Michael Fitzpatrick’s voice. Their performance of Handclap was awesome and overall, they kicked the concert off to a great start for me.

I’ve seen the 1975 twice before, but honestly seeing them live just never gets old. Matty Healy is so entertaining to watch with his unique dance moves and cigarettes on stage. They performed all of my favorite songs EXCEPT my all time favorite, Robbers. I was extremely disappointed. Still, I was surprised and excited they performed Heart Out because I wasn’t expecting that. Although I like the 1975’s second album, nothing quite tops their first.

Empire of the Sun had to be my favorite performance by far. Seeing them perform a few songs actually felt like a tease and now I’m determined to go to one of their concerts. They are by far the most entertaining. I already love their music as is, but they really do have a performance for each song. They have dancers and smoke and costumes, and basically to sum it up, this performance was definitely the most visually stimulating. I would highly recommend trying to see these guys live.

Bastille was also great live and I got to hear them sing Flaws which I was super excited about. Unfortunately, by this time I was sore and cold and tired and did not make it through the entirety of Bastille’s performance which was disappointing. What was even more disappointing was I didn’t get to see Kings of Leon at all!! (sad face) Still, I had a great time at this concert and definitely got my money’s worth despite the rain, mud, and being so far from the stage. I had a great time and I can’t wait for day 2!

March Faves

March is coming to an end so I thought I’d do something I haven’t done in a long, long time- a monthly favorites post! If you guys like this post, I’ll start doing making monthly faves more often so please let me know what you think!

Here are my March faves! 🙂

Beauty:

I have three big things I want to discuss. The first is Smith’s Rosebud Salve. Inexpensive, moisturizing, and pretty much a staple for my lips. It’s still pretty cold around where I live, so everything is still very dry. My lips dry out so fast in the cold air, and I find this to be the best way to keep some moisture.

Another product I’ve been loving which I discussed in my self-tanner reviews is my Tanceuticals Self-Tanning Body Lotion. I love this because of the smell- not only does it not have that stinky self-tanner smell, but it actually smells good. Not to mention it is the perfect shade, as it’s dark, but not too dark to look fake. And it is probably the only self-tanner that doesn’t cause my acne prone skin to break out. If you’re into self-tanner, I highly recommend giving this a try.

My last product is my Maybelline New York Eyestudio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner. I don’t believe in spending an excessive amount of money on eyeliner. For one thing, I could never afford it because I wear cat eyes almost daily and pens never seem to last that long. This eyeliner is inexpensive, and it’s very easy to create a sharp wing with the felt tip. It has been my Holy Grail of liquid liners.

Music

I have got to mention my latest song obsession because this song is going to be huge soon and I’m calling it now. The song is called There’s a Honey by Pale Waves and it is the catchiest, most relatable song ever and I am obsessed. I’m also seeing Pale Waves perform this summer and I cannot wait! Check out the song here! Fun fact: the song was produced by the 1975, and if you know anything about me, you know I’m obsessed with the 1975! I’ve seen them twice in concert, plus I’m seeing them again this summer. I guess it only makes sense for me to be obsessed with this song!

Others

I’ve been really into Instagram lately, not that I haven’t always enjoyed Instagram, but I feel myself becoming more and more addicted. If you’re interested, you can check out my Insta here along with other sites I’m obsessed with such as the Odyssey (my other blog), Bloglovin‘, and Poshmark.

But yeah, that pretty much sums up my monthly favorites! There aren’t too many things on my list for this month, but everything that did make the list has been my absolutely and utter obsession. If you liked this post, let me know and I’ll make another one for April! Hope you all enjoyed this post and hope you enjoy the rest of your spring! Thanks for reading!
