Favourite songs I discovered in 2016!

I've never really talked about my music taste before on my blog, but I feel like this last year I've discovered so many good new bands. I've had my current job for just over a year now, and I spend most of my days in the office so I have lots of time to listen to the radio and discover new music. I mostly like to listen to rock/metal music, but I genuinely will give anything a go - I won't even try and deny that I definitely became a Beliber in 2015. I thought it would be nice to do a little round-up post of some of my favourite bands and songs that I discovered this year and hopefully you can find something new that you like too! I think I discovered most of these listening to Radio X and triple j, let me know your favourite!

Spring King - Rectifier

Blossoms - Charlemagne

Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes - There's a Devil inside of me

The Last Shadow Puppets - Used To Be My Girl

The Black Queen - Ice To Never

Sticky Fingers - Liquorlip Loaded Gun

Violent Soho - Outsider

The 1975 - The Sound

Tame Impala - The Less I Know The Better

Why 2016 wasn't all bad...

Well 2016 has been eventful to say the least! And although it's been a terrible year in some aspects, it's also been pretty awesome. I'm feeling really positive and excited for this next year so I thought I'd end on a high and list a few things that made 2016 a good year. Bring on 2017, I've got a feeling it's gonna be a good'un! :)

  • I got to see some of my favourite bands live and discovered loads of great new bands to listen to
  • My mummy got married
  • I ticked off some of my bucket list by going on some awesome holidays and road trips including Paris and Marrakech
  • I found out that I'm gonna be an auntie and went to my sister's baby scan
  • I caught a Jigglypuff
  • I got my first tattoo finished (nearly 10 years later)
  • My school friends surprised me with a sausage dog cake and pressies for my birthday
  • My best friends surprised me with a spa day and afternoon tea for my birthday
  • I rekindled some friendships that I'm so grateful for
  • I learnt to do my eye makeup properly
  • Leonardo won an Oscar
  • I laughed every single day
