INSPIRATION - A Summer of Music
Last weekend I was lucky enough to get a ticket to Lovebox with the team promoting the new Puma fragrances (you can find out more about the scents on The Style PA for Men). It was the Friday of the Lovebox Weekender and headlining were Hot Chip who I've been keen on seeing for ages. They were great, but city festivals just aren't loud enough sometimes. They've also got a new album out which I've been listening to on Spotify the past couple of weeks.
The other highlight was a young DJ called Madeon who has made it onto a lot of festival line-ups this year. He's French and started DJing when he was just 11 years old - definitely worth catching if you get the chance. I met lots of fab bloggers and press peeps and had the pleasure of hanging out with the lovely Zozo of The London Lipgloss for most of the day (seen below playing mini golf in the VIP area). She was also lucky enough to win a pair of Hunter wellies in a competition they were running on the day too.
At the end of last month I saw The Noisettes perform at an event for Windows Phone. The Live events they run are always great fun and this was probably the 6th time I's seen Shingai and the band perform live. Her voice is so amazing and she's great at really capturing everyone's attention and getting people involved in the performance. I can't believe they still haven't released a new album yet... come on guys!
Shingai wore an eighties-style jumpsuit along with Louboutin wedges... although she didn't keep them on long. No way you can dance and get crazily energetic within the confines of heels.
I've been using the phone for a while on-and-off and I love the calendar and contacts management on there. It makes me feel really organised. The X-Box gaming section is pretty cool too, plus the sleek design is a bonus. I just can't completely give up my Android... we're too close!
The event was held at one of my favourite venues - Proud Galleries in Camden - which is also just a short walk from my flat!
Tomorrow I'm off to Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, headlined by Rihanna. Watch this space for updates on that. I love festival season!
