Three Nights At Wembley - 5 Seconds of Summer Review

5 Seconds of Summer, 'Calum, Luke,Michael and Ashton' an Australian band that used to be the support act of One Direction, Since then their fan base has grown rapidly and they are now on their headline sell out tour around the world.  These lads have even more bigger things coming for them.... Good Luck Guys! 

The Band (not boyband) 5 Seconds of Summer had their last three shows of the Uk & Ireland tour 'Rock out with your socks out' at Wembley Arena, London on the weekend. The Lads sold out all three of their London tour dates... Sold Out?! Hell yeahhhh.
 I was lucky enough to attend the shows which were amazing may I add. 

5SOS fans are up to anything to be noticed by the four good-looking  lads,as I walked around the arena the fan dedication was 100% shown from homemade T-shirts to bananas... oh and also parents dressing up #MUMSOS.  
Me and my friend Lauren managed to find some seriously dedicated fans, including these ones in the banana costumes. Many fans made their own T-shirts with 'Irwin' , 'Hood' , 'Hemmings' and 'Clifford' on the back showing their support for these lads! 

5 Seconds of Summer now have their own record label called ' Hi or Hey Records'  where they signed their support act 'Hey Violet'.  Hey Violet were surprisingly good as I thought I
wouldn't enjoy the kind of music they play however I was so wrong! Hey Violet will 100% surprise you with how good they are, not only do they sing their own songs... they give others a chance who may not know their songs,to sing along with some covers as well including 'Blank Space' by Taylor Swift. 

As soon as 5SOS came on stage, the atmosphere changed! the fans got even more pumped and ready for the show!  5SOS started their set off by rocking the place down!  I haven't been to a good concert in ages and these three concerts were definitely the best concerts I've ever been too! 5SOS were amazing and I suggest you go see them on their tour which is next off too New Zealand, Australia and America. I promise you won't regret it! During the concert 5SOS invite one lucky fan on stage to play guitar which gets the whole audience pumped! During the second show Michael had an accident on stage which involved the pyro however Michael was back out on stage the next day performing for their amazing fans... shows nothing stops these lads caring about their fans eh?
5 Seconds of Summer also perform their new song 'Permanent Vacation'.

Jacob Whitesides - London Show Review

Jacob Whitesides recently finished his first ever European Tour. Jacob Started his career on social media websites such as youtube, Facebook,twitter and vine.  Jacob has had a passion for singing for many years and has successfully started a career out of it.

I was lucky enough to attend one of his London shows  (which by the way... sold out in miniutes). Jacob chose his own talented support act 'Esmee Denters'. Jacob mostly performed his own original songs which was a great experience for fans to hear live for the first time ever! Jacob also sang songs by Ed Sheeran and One Direction which are well known artists everywhere, this gave the opportunity for parents, carers or guardians to sing along as they may not know the lyrics of Jacob songs.
Throughout the gig, Jacob was interacting with fans and making the gig feel more personal. Some fans were even luckily enough to receive a free guitar pick from Jacob. 

Jacob is going to be coming back to the UK very soon as he announces a International Tour! Jacob is an amazing singer that you should not miss out on!

Lets get cute with Cutea

Hi Guys, 

I've tried loads of detox teas and I've only found a few that make my check list.

  • It has to taste nice, nobody wants to have a detox when it tastes horrible 
  • You might have to try a few detox teas to get the right one
  • Detox teas with actual tea bags are a bonus, this means you can have the tea anywhere without using a infuser. 

Cutea is most probably one of the best detox teas I've had, Not only does it smell and taste nice... It 100% works!  I was really unsure about this at first because of experiences I've had with other detox teas in the past however I am never going back to another detox tea again! I am absolutely in love with this detox tea. The results started to work straight away, I felt less bloated and throughout the week my stomach started to look flatter which was the best results I've had when drinking detox teas.  I'm so impressed with my results after my 14 Day detox and I can honestly say there is no going back!  

Cutea helps remove toxins from your body so you can beat 'stubborn' body fat,feel great and always look your cutest.

London Fashion Week - My Experience

This Season AW15, I worked at London Fashion Week which was a very inspirational experience.  I started off by taking models to castings which was really interesting because you got to see what happens behind the scenes. 

This included lots of traveling around London and working long hours. I went backstage to the Fashion Scout (Portugal Fashion) Show And The Amanda Wakeley Presentation which was the most exciting moments of the week. Most people are very stereotypical when talking about models and the fashion industry, many of you might think models do not eat however this is not true. Whilst working at London Fashion Week I've had burgers with models and seen the type of backstage food they provide for staff and the models. The type of food they provide is healthy and unhealthy such as fruit,salad,brownies,crisps,popcorn and cupcakes. This has probably surprised a few people. I got to see how the models get ready for the shows and presentation. Backstage is chaos but very exciting and interesting, it was nice to see what goes on backstage for once. Each and every model looked stunning with the natural makeup and elegant clothing. 
The castings and fittings were very interesting, I came across nice people throughout working at London Fashion Week and I felt very comfortable and at home. During castings models are made to either walk in flats or high heels in front of the designer and her/his team. They should present their 'book' or 'card' to the designer and should be as confident as possible.  I learnt what model scouts look for when scouting for models, I can now tell what type of women and men have the potential to be models.  Amanda Wakeley has amazing designs, I was honestly the heart eyed emoji when I saw her collection. 

See you next season Lfw x

5 Makeup Products You Won't Regret Buying


1.  Mac Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist
2.  Mac Oil Control Lotion 
3.   Bourjois Healthy mix serum (gel foundation)
4.L'OREAL Paris New Nude Magique (Blur Cream)
5. Balmi Lip Balm

As Usual Mac products are absolutely amazing, Mac Charged Water Skin Hydrating mist does exactly what it says on the box. It hydrates your skin,resets makeup and smells absolutely gorgeous . It comes in a 100ml bottle and it lasts every long,It is priced at £17. 
Another great product by Mac is the Mac oil control lotion, this product is a lifesaver for people with oily skin (like me). You can use this day or night which is great for different occasions. The great thing about this product is it controls the amount of oil on your skin and minimises it. It comes in a 50ml bottle and it is priced at £23. You can also buy a travel size bottle which is great for travelling to places that have hot and cold weather, It is a 30ml bottle and it is priced at £10. What a bargain for such a great product. 

Bourjois healthy mix serum is possibly the best foundation (gel) I've ever used, It's very smooth when applied and smells gorgeous throughout the day! It has a 16 hour radiance-boosting even and a revived complexion.This is priced at £10.99.
I 100% recommend this product because it's absolutely amazing! The only downside is it's only a 30ml bottle however you can buy a similar product, Bourjois Foundation (Radiance Revel) which is £9.99

L'OREAL paris are known for great makeup products and the New nude magique (Blur cream) proves this.  It absolutely works wonders, it blurs pores and refines skin texture.  I rely on this product a lot because it makes my skin look amazing most of the time. It has micro-blur technology concentrated with light reflectors which causes a blurring effect for a flawless nude complexion. This is priced at £9.99 and it is absolutely worth buying. I've heard you can get similar versions but I have yet to try them. 

Balmi lip balm is perfect for the cold weather, everyone gets bad chapped lips during cold and windy weather however this can be prevented or smoothed by using Balmi lip balm. I got this product for £2.00 due to a deal however it is usually priced at £4.99. Balmi lip balm comes in different flavours and different colour packaging, the one i'm using at the moment is 'Coconut'. I recommend you treating yourself to a Balmi lip balm, It's honestly worth it.

(All prices listed above)
Have a great day,

Leather? The Trend is Back! - The London City Girl


                         Hi guys, sorry for not being as active as usual. Leather has come back into style.. YES LEATHER! 
The excitement is real! I recently brought a leather skirt, I was full of excitement.. I couldn't wait to wear it! Leather skirts and trousers are back in style for this season. Want to experiment? Go ahead you won't regret it! the best thing is.. we can get leather skirts and trousers in different colours!! Remember not to over do the leather.. a leather jacket and skirt would not look good in my opinion. 
Accessorising is very important, a clutch bag or handbag is a must have when wearing leather. 

Is leather only for special occasions and parties? Certainly NOT! Leather can be worn anywhere, any time.. you'll still look good! *inserts heart eye emoji* 
                                            Do you dare to wear leather?

My Look :


Top - £18.00 from Topshop 
Leather Skirt - £14.99 from H&M
Tights - pack of 4 from H&M £4.00

Dare to wear leather... have a good week!

Cheap Thursdays! - The London City Girl.

Welcome to Cheap Thursdays! I found an item that is unusually cheap such as hair products.
The first product is something that I wouldn't usually need or buy however my hair has been very flat lately and I needed some extreme volume asap!! I found the perfect product for my hair which is the Herbal Essences dry shampoo (uplifting volume).  Herbal Essences are known for great smelling products and this definitely takes the top ten! My hair was left with an amazing citrus smell for days. Most products have to be used more than once to get the effect or smell, this is not the case with this product.  I highly recommend this product, it's perfect for all hair types and it is extremely cheap! I promise that you won't regret using it. 

Dry Shampoo (Boots) - 2 for £2

New Year Favourites!

New Year Favourites...

Wow it's 2015.. Welcome to the most futuristic sounding year ever! 
This year I will be expanding my blog, I'm hoping to include more fashion trends,makeup reviews, some music and film reviews. 

One of my first new year favourites has to be from Soap & Glory. As amazing as it looks, it smells 100% better. Soap & Glory products feel so amazing on your skin and the results for smoother skin are even better! I recommend for everyone to buy at least one product from Soap & Glory.  The British store Boots was having an amazing sale on selected products from s&g and they still may have some sale items in the January sales. Come on girls... Let's go shopping! 
Spray is absolutely amazing! Smells great and lasts long.
The Hand gel works well and even smells amazing that you can't help but use it again.
Hand creme keeps hands smooth and smelling gorgeous.

My second new year favourite is from Victoria's Secret. Although VS is expensive, the sales are amazing.  I got a makeup bag that is sparkly and girly for half price which is every good for a product from VS.  The makeup bag was from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Range, it's perfect for a girly girl like me. I recommend anyone to buy this either for themselves or others. You won't regret it as it's an easily loveable gift. 

Hope you enjoyed my new year favourites,
