nme awards presenter
Returning to the NME Awards (this time with ID&C – the kings of fabric wristbands) was one hundred percentĀ as thrilling as my first time.

I have spent the last few years as a red carpet presenter, broadcast journalist, blogger, et al, but these events never fail to fill my inner child with immeasurable gratitude.

For the NME Awards 2017, I was fortunate enough to see Bastille perform live again (they were the best band I saw live last year), swoon as Skepta and Wiley’s bromance played out on stage, and watch girl power reign supreme with MIA winning Best British Female (alongside similar awards for the rising stars of Christine & The Queens and Dua Lipa).

What I Wore:
Galveston Cutout skater dress from JOY The Store
Butterfly Twists Amber Glitter Pointed Fold Up Pump from JOY The Store (in the bag for pre-show running around!)
Sargossa Nappa heels

Hair – The geniuses at Duck & Dry. In fact, I loved their new Oxford Circus blow dry bar so much I used it to shoot these pre-awards photos!
Face Of The Day – Essentially exactly the same as The 90s Brunch Cher from Clueless makeup look (without the strobe cream).

Given the finger. Classic NME.

lanzarote day two 3
There are work trips and there are werk trips. The following three day adventure in Lanzarote with Thomas Cook Airlines – a blogger trip alongside a pack of fellow talented digital types – proved to be the latter in no time at all.

Within three days, strangers became friends, standing on top of an active volcano became a reality, and my misconceptions of Lanzarote (as a ‘party destination’) became a distant thought.

But you’ll have to keep reading to find out why…
