Integrating Music (Through Spotify) To Your Blog/Website.

May 5, 2013

If anyone (and by anyone, I’m probably referring to a handful of my closest musically-minded friends) read my blog before I changed URL and became a relatively exclusively beauty/fashion oriented writer, you’d know that I’m a tad obsessed with music, and my blog was formerly solely based on album/EP reviews. And synthesisers. And strings. And harmonies. So, after doing a little research at the insistence of my boyfriend (who always jokily asks me to write him in to one of these posts – congrats, babe), I found out you can pop little ‘Spotify Play’ widgets into posts – including tracks, albums and playlists – by using this page.

Life Lesson Learned: If you want to go to the fucking gig, get tickets for the fucking gig.

January 11, 2012

I love a good gig. There is very little, sex aside, that can top that nervy feeling of euphoria when you’re waiting for your favourite band to come onstage at your favourite gig venue. Same goes for howling along to your favourite lyrics or hanging on the every word of the lead singer… Gigs are just awesome. As a rule, I’ve had a terrible habit in the past of finding tickets of gigs that I really want to go to, then spending way too long deliberating about buying the tickets – only to lose them and be faced with buying them off eBay for stupid prices, or wait for their next tour. This unfortunate situation occurred last year when I was looking to buy tickets to see one of my favourite artists – Laura Marling.

Obligatory Introductory Post.

January 9, 2012

It’s been around three long years since I last had a proper, written blog and, given I’m an Undergraduate English Language student – it’s a bit lax. There isn’t a particular theme for this blog, more an excuse for me to exercise my brain a little and an outlet for me to bitch and moan about things that irk me, or to gush over the things I love.

For a current example, I’d quite happily write a post bitching about the fact that I have an essay due on the 20th and a huge book that corresponds with it, that I cannot be bothered reading. Conversely, I’d write an ‘on-the-fence’ post about Lana Del Rey – a hot topic of discussion at the moment – blurring the lines between indie and pop mainstream, one shot of Botox at a time. Finally, if I were to write a post about something I currently love, it’d be about The Civil Wars, or the joys of Student Finance and the January Sales.

Today, however, I think I have to concentrate on the damn essay… Read more ›
