Newton Faulkner

In 2010 I was introduced to a new song by someone I had never heard of before and I fell in love with the music. That song was Dream Catch Me by Newton Faulkner. I started listening to more songs by this artist and I just felt at home with some of the songs I heard, they were super catchy. I used to listen to them on my MP3 player whilst walking around the canals and through the countryside on many summer evenings.

Now, 7 years later I have seen this guy perform in person and it was incredible. There's nothing more satisfying and heart warming that going to see someone who has been in some of your fondest memories. It was like reliving my youth again, when I say my youth I just mean my teenage years.
The tickets were a birthday present for my 22nd birthday this year from my wonderful fiance, Kee, who I have mentioned on here several times before. It was one of the best birthday presents I have ever had because memories will last a lot longer than a bottle of wine.

Anyway, we had …

Breakfast at Frankie & Benny's.

Last week was a busy week consisting of Halloween, gigs, nights out and finally Kee's birthday. It was a very exhausting but fun week. So when it came to the Sunday (Kee's birthday) we were intending on staying at home all day and just relaxing. However, we had been to Stoke the day before with his family to Frankie and Benny's and Kee noticed that they did breakfast food (his favourite food besides curry). 
Then come Sunday morning we woke up super hungry, fed up of toast and decided to just go for it. We usually go to whetherspoons for food as it is cheap and reliable, however, as a birthday treat we decided to go for the new Frankie and Benny's as it seemed it would be cheap enough! It was only £5.95 for the standard breakfasts so that was quite a bargain!
The atmosphere in the restaurant itself was so nice and relaxing. Although, we were sat on this couples table and the lamp on the side was rather bright and blinding! We went early enough in the morning so there …

Winter is here, now to get through it.

It is that time of year where summer has long passed in the U.K and we are edging closer towards the end of Autumn and the start of Winter. Some of us out there welcome Winter with open arms, whereas the rest of us cross our arms to form a barrier and end up in denial that Winter exists.I am guilty of being in the group for the latter part. In my option, Winter sucks. I don't understand those who love the early darkness in the nights and enjoy freezing everywhere if you aren't layered up with 10 different types of clothes. I am one of those people who long for warmth, long bright days and shot nights. Of course that cannot happen in this country and sadly we can't always receive what we desire. 
Unfortunately, this time of year can be the worst time for many individual's mental health. After-all, this time of year is when SAD (seasonal affective disorder) likes to kick in for many individuals. SAD is a disorder that negatively affects individuals mental health at cert…

Music: What's making me move?

Hey guys,
How are you all doing? Hope you are all having a lovely week and enjoying the weather (which is about as indecisive as myself and Kee choosing between watching Stranger Things or The Good Place on Netflix)
I thought today I would talk about what music I'm really digging at the moment. I spend so long walking to and from work each week so I ended up getting Spotify Premium in order to enjoy music on the go. It is worth the £9.99 a month when you can download some of your favourite songs to your device. It is great to enjoy a bit of variety depending on what you feel like listening to and it is also great to share what you love. If you love something what is the point in keeping it to yourself when you can share this and allow others to enjoy what you love. Hence why I am going to share a few songs I absolutely love at the moment.
