I don’t know about you, but I cannot get motivated at the gym without some music. Usually I start my work out off on the treadmill, which is great for getting the blood pumping, but seriously repetitive and a bit dull. When I’ve got some good music on however, I can run for miles (or maybe like 5km).
I thought I’d share my top 10 tracks for any work out to give you a little bit of motivation to get down to the gym or go for a run or whatever.
Somehow it’s only one week until the big day. How we’ve managed to reach this point and get though all of 2016’s shit I don’t know. But one way or another, Christmas day is almost upon us. If you’ve left your shopping to the last minute, you might be panicking and wondering where on earth to start. But fear not! Being the helpful Christmas elf that I am, I’ve compiled a gift guide for all you last minuters.
It’s been a few weeks since I posted about my Creamfields festival experiences and since then I returned to Mysteryland for the second year in a row. I thought I’d wait until I got back to give a full summary of my thoughts, in case anything had changed since last year. There were definitely some changes, and I think this post would have been slightly different had I written it 3 weeks ago, but it’s fair to say my love for the Dutch people hasn’t faded in the slightest.
Leading on from last week’s Tomorrowland post, this week I want to share my Creamfields experiences with you. James and I have been to Creamfields twice, in 2013 and 2014, the second year being the year we also went to Tomorrowland the month before.
When I think back to Creamfields, I have mixed feelings because the two years were so different. 2013 was our first ever festival experience all together, whereas 2014 followed on from the most incredible festival experience I’ve had to date, so it’s fair to say our interpretations of the festival changed massively in the space of a year.
In 3 weeks time, I will be on my way to Mysteryland, a dance music festival in the Netherlands. After a heavy year of final assessments and grad-life stress, I cannot wait to be reunited with this beautiful place.
All my excitement and eagerness has lead me to reminisce about my festival history. Though I’ve only been to a few festivals, my favourite memories were made at these places, and every time I hear a song that takes me back to one of them, I thank God I booked another to look forward to (it’s a never ending cycle).
