The yearly Runrig concert

Okay, I know what most people think when I tell them I'm a Runrig fan. They really don't seem to understand why... Lots of people haven't even heard about the band and others simply believes that Runrig are for the older generation. They should know better, hehe. Okay, to be honest they are partly right. Runrig is an old Scottish band that have been playing for over 30 years, and therefore they do have a lot of old fans, but it doesn't mean it's only old people liking them. I see lots of younger people when i'm at the concerts, and i'll tell you why.

This is how I became a fan of Runrig. My parents used to go to the Tønder Festival in Jutland every year, and they would always come home and tell me about how great Runrig were. Then one summer they played a concert in Den Fynske Landsby (a little old village in Odense), and my parents asked me to come along, I said no at first as I didn't really know them and was sure it wasn't anything I would like. I ended up going anyway, and I'm so glad I did!

Going to a Runrig concert is an amazing experience! I have never in my life met such a wonderful happy audience and the atmosphere is indescribable! You can't say you don't like Runrig, until you've been to a concert with them. I love their music too, so happy, dancy and folk rock is actually really nice! I now go to their concerts every summer when they play in Odense. A tradition I have with a big part of my family and something I hope will never change.

From Runrig's 30th anniversary at Stirling Castle (Day of Days, 2003).

I recommend a Runrig concert to all music lovers, it's amazing and you will feel so happy afterwards! Plus you'll keep singing and dancing all night, absolutely fantastic!

I'm going to see them tonight at Den Fynske Landsby, i'll bring my Scottish flag and be the crazy fan as always!!

Next weeks listings on ebay!

I'm gonna have a little sale on ebay starting monday next week. I've for some time now had a few things i've been thinking about selling, but I just haven't got around to it, until now! I'm kinda tired of having nice shoes and clothes lying around when I can't use it anyway. So why not try and sell it instead? I'm therefore putting these two pairs of shoes up for auction.

Black New Look Sandals size 7/40 - £ 20

I bought these sandals a season or two ago in England. They are from the high street fashion brand New Look, and actually really nice. I've for some reason bought them a size too big though, and have therefore never used them. A real shame as I actually do like them.

Red Glitter Peep Toe Shoes size 6/39 (bought on ebay from aspireshoes) - £ 16.99

I fell in love with these shoes the second I saw them! I think they are absolutely gorgeous. I bought them on ebay, but they are quite small in the size so I couldn't fit a size 6, but had to buy a bigger size. Because of the expense of postage returning the shoes I decided I couldn't be bothered to, but instead i'm just gonna sell them myself.

As said these shoes will be on ebay from monday next week, but if you already now like any of them please let me know and i'll be more than happy to sell them to you before putting them on ebay, and maybe even give a little discount too. Just contact me before monday evening.

First bit of shopping this month

I've said this many times before, but i'm gonna say it again. Working in a clothes shop is very very hard for a lady. There are so many times you have to avoid temptation and sometimes you just can't! I've put these clothes aside at work for buying tomorrow. I love getting new clothes, it's such a good feeling!!

I've been looking at the flowery top for a while, but as i'm not use to wearing colourful clothes with patterns and such I didn't really think it would be me. I tried it on anyway and it was actually really cute! Perfect for the summer! The grey leggings should hopefully match a dress i've got, plus they are on sale and very comfy and nice to wear. I haven't got a lot of tops and i've been looking everywhere for some nice ones for the summer, but haven't seen any I like so I thought I would just get some basic ones and then I can always wear them with something else that makes them look a bit more interesting. The t-shirt is just a really nice colour on me and it's kinda cute too!

Sweet and sour love geeks tee - 229 kr
Paris Flower zip cami - 299 kr
Grey Superglossy leggings - 114 kr (half price)
Basic v neck vests (pink and green) - 79 kr each

The prices are from Topshop in Magasin, Odense. You can also buy the clothes on their webpage

Upcoming concerts this year!

I have recently bought myself some tickets for two upcoming concerts this year, well at least so far. There might be other great gigs coming up that I wanna go to. It's two very different artists and genre of music though, but I like lots of different music, and I think these two concerts are gonna be awesome!

The first one is with the very odd, but super talented Lady Gaga! I'm going to her concert in Copenhagen the 31st of July. I'm really looking forward to it. I hope that she'll play some of her songs acoustic as I really love that! She's got such a special and beautiful voice, but that doesn't really come out in her songs on her album. I still love lots of the songs though. They've got a very good beat to them, and the lyrics are quite funny. It's very dancy party music (what i've heard of it so far), but that's good too. I've also heard her performances are crazy, so it can only be wild!!

Lady Gaga

The other concert is the one I'm looking forward to the most! This band has been on my list of bands I wanna see live for a looong time. I honestly didn't think I was ever gonna see them as I haven't heard any news from the band for years. But then suddenly I heard something. They've been making a new album and are back on world tour this year!! Woohoo! I'm so happy that they are back!!! As soon as tickets went on sale I was ready to get some. I'm off to see one of the coolest rock bands I know, Green Day!! I bought tickets for the O2 concert in London on the 24th of October. I'll be going with my boyfriend as he's a big fan of them too. I really can not wait!! Rock on!! :D

Green Day
