Shout it out...

Heya,

So I've been in Landahhn today. I was a part of the final episode of 4Music's show "Shout Outs", which was basically a pop culture show with a load of us mouthy lot gave our opinions. I got to be on TV, and have a rant. Basically my perfect day.

Surprisingly to say this was a music show, recorded at the Channel 4 Studios in the middle of London, there were loads of Notts heads in the audience, so it was good to catch up with lots of old friends and make some pretty cool new ones. They also had two girls from Hollyoaks as the guests, one of which (Jorgie Porter) was basically my dream celeb crush back when I was 16. So, you know, can tick the "be in the same room as her" box off 16 year old Sam's bucket list.

Annnnd, I GOT THE MAC. WOO. Yeah, on Wednesday I was lucky enough to finally get my Macbook Pro and I bloody love it. It feels so odd to be on a computer that actually does things with speed and with an intuitive operating system. It runs like a dream, and I already feel like 10x more productive. So yes, Sam is very happy at the minute.

I'm off to the magical place that is IKEA to get a new desk tomorrow. I love IKEA. It's like design porn for me. I'm so excited. I have no doubt I'll do some hipster Instagram post of my new desk setup (keep an eye out yo!). 

Anyways, I need to sleep now. So that's what I'm gonna do. Nanight.

Much love,

P.S - If you're thinking about getting the Vampire Frappucino from Starbucks. Don't. It's gross.


Ch, ch, ch, checkin it out...

Heya,

Thought I'd check in. Ya know this whole daily posting thing got a bit out of hand, so I reckon I'm gonna set a more realistic goal. At least one post a week, ideally two. I'll stick to that.

So, here's the first post of the week. Woo *confetti emoji*. 

Life's been super fun and a bit mad this past few weeks. Last night I saw Foxes at Rescue Rooms. And she absolutely smashed it. To say she's only got one album, she's got five or six belters of pop songs. Clarity is still one of the best pop records of the past decade imo. You can check out my review HERE.

Tomorrow, I will finally own a Macbook. Yes, after about seven years of wanting one, but never quite being able to justify one, I'll be the proud owner of a shiny Macbook Pro. It's an early 21st present, but I cannot wait. The thought of actually being able to run Premiere and Lightroom without waiting ten years to do something - DREAM. 

Oh, and I can sip my Pumpkin Spice Lattes in Starbucks and be a proper poser. :) :) :) 

On Friday I'm back to London to film another episode of 4Music's Shout Outs. Keep an eye on your telleh at 4pm to see my quiff bopping about. It was loads of fun last time, and any excuse to be in London I'm down with. 

So yeah, that's a post. Boom. Bish bash bosh. Off to host a quiz. See ya in a bizzle.

Much love,

Fun Fridays...

Heya,

Yeah, I know today's title is lame, but I'm knackered, give me a break.

I've had a super fun day today in the big city of London. I went down for the 4Music show I was telling ya'll about in the last post - Shout Outs, and it was just as crazy & entertaining as you'd expect a live pop culture show to be.

I met some awesome peeps, including some awesome YouTubers (when I'm less of a zombie I'll link them all up!) and... Ollie and Toff from Made in Chelsea! Yup, random as hell, but they were lovely and a pleasure to star alongside.

Hopefully, I'll be back down in a few weeks time for another episode. I think my favourite thing about today though - it reaffirmed to me that presenting/YouTubing is what I went to do. When I finally get my MacBook sorted in the coming weeks, I'm gonna get straight on it. I've got so many ideas man, and I can't wait to share them all with you.

Oh, and if you follow me on Twitter, you'll be glad to know that I did get a Pumpkin Spice Latte in the end. And, my basic cravings were fulfilled.

Time to sleep now. I'll probs give a more in depth overview/perspective at some point over the next few days. For now, my duvet is calling.

Much love,
Sam x

Trippin' Thursdays...

Heya,

So, tonight is quite exciting. Why? Cos I'm preparing for tomorrow. What's happening tomorrow? I'm off to London. Why?

Okay, I'll stop this now. Tomorrow I head to London to be a guest on a 4Music show on National telly. Yup, at 4pm tomorrow you'll see my pretty face lighting up your telly box, brightening up your Friday afternoon with thoughts on the latest music vids and other media shizzle. The show is called Shout Outs, and you can check the trailer HERE.

Speaking of shout outs, much love to Jess Taylor who got me involved! 

Most of you will know I'm hoping to move into presenting, so this kinda thing is a perfect training ground, and networking opportunity. I'm buzzing for it. And I just love being in London, it really is a beautiful city.

Now, I need to go and do those really helpful things like work out how to actually get there. Yeah, I should probs do that now.

INABIT.

Much love,
Sam x
