I really wish I could say this is a well deserved break from studying but truth be told I have had the worst concentration spam in the history of human kind. Literally all I did was a Maths past paper, an English comparison and some chemistry, which I still don’t understand. And I have possibly the most horrible 2 weeks of exams coming up and I’m starting to panic.
So what does one do when in such state? Oh but off course paint their nails. It’s ’cause I just got this new nailpolish which has been torturing me on my makeup table just screaming ‘Try me!!!’ and since I’m so weak…
Ta-daaa! Isn’t it the most amazing color you have ever seen? I am seriously in love with it. Well, it’s also sort of a placebo effect since it’s the new Chanel 217 Splendeur shade, and I would die for Chanel so it would be highly unlikely that I didn’t like it. To add shine (and prevent any peelings and cracks as such) I also applied my trusty Essie ‘to dry for’ top coat.
Oh and to link it to the title, I’m going to a concert tonight at the Barbican hall which I have been dreaming of for around 3 years; I’ll get to see piano composer/player Dustin O’Halloran whose songs feature in my favorite movie of all times Marie Antoinette. This is such a vital moment, personally, that I think it deserves Chanel nails right?
This is like the 4th time I’m trying to blog about this but each time I press some goddamn button that just erases it, so I really apologize if my wits are not as sharp this time. Frustration has taken it’s toll.
Anyways, moving on to nicer things. Saturday night, as the socialite or socialization-loving person that I am (chose whichever appropriate), I went down to the Troubadour club in London’s West Brompton to support one of my friends, Sofia Donavan. She had the amazing opportunity to perform there, for the very first time, in front of what looked like a very opinionated and mature crowd but she had them all clapping for an encore at the end!
So what I want you, dear reader, to do is check out her youtube channel :http://www.youtube.com/user/SofiaDLafuente
and more impressively her myspace account where she has posted all her original songs which are all (very impressively) written by herself : http://www.myspace.com/576502830 . I especially like Behind your Eyes (it’s not out yet though but stay tuned) and Soldier’s Letter.
Also, she has an upcoming concert within the Isle of White festival (major event!) on the 23rd of June so if any of you guys are going there, keep an eye out for Sofia’s performance. I can promise you that it’s not the last time you’ll be hearing of her! 🙂
Sofia Donavan singing If I die young by the band Perry. Stunning!
