Spotify on Shuffle

I recently downloaded Spotify, I know I am a bit behind the times, and have been loving it. Over the next few months I will be shuffling my Spotify and sharing the songs that play with you. Each time I will share 5 songs that come up and why I like them. I love music posts on other people's blogs because I am constantly looking for new people to listen to. I hope that you enjoy this new set of posts, so here goes the first shuffle...

This song is quite old but I remember listening to it so much when I was younger. It really takes me back and I seem to still know all the words, oops! Natalie has a lovely voice, great for easy listening, and if you like this I would recommend that you listen to her song, 'Shiver', another favourite of mine.

On their most recent album three of Paramore's songs were Interludes, they were all acoustic and played on the ukulele. I play the ukulele and love Paramore so loved this little addition to their album, which was amazing anyway. They are so cute and I love to listen to them in succession, as they are only short.

The Vaccines bring out one amazing album after another and '20/20' is from their most recent one, English Graffiti. This is such a catchy song, on an incredible album, and not one to be missed. The Vaccines are just as incredible live, as they are on CD. You can read my review of The Vaccines concert that I went to a few months ago here.

I discovered Dexy's by watching 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower', since then they have been one of my favourite bands and that has been one of my favourite films. I have been collecting Dexy's records for a while now and only discovered this song recently when I realised I hadn't listened to one of my records, this song blasted out and I have loved it ever since.

Just like everyone, well everyone I have ever met, I love Adele. All of her songs are beautiful and this one is no different, I don't really know what else to say. I can't explain how much I would love to see Adele in concert and hope one day to get a chance.

On the last day of term I went shopping with my friends and on going into Topshop realised they were having a huge sale. This was music to my ears because, to be honest, I only really buy things in Topshop in the sale. I was so pleased to see this Stripy Dress, which I had been eyeing up for a while, was in the sale and grabbed it! It is so comfy and easy to dress up or down, which is great. I love its versatility. Alongside this my other favourite bargain from Topshop was this pair of Skater Shoes, which cost just £5. I have been looking for some of these for a while and I am so pleased with how they look with my Topshop Mom Jeans.

I recently decided that I really want to learn how to do Modern Calligraphy, in other words, really pretty writing. I bought a calligraphy pen and then realised that I didn't know how to use it and despite a bit of practise wasn't having much luck. Consequently, my dad ordered me the fab book 'Nib & Ink: The New Art of Modern Calligraphy' which will teach me how to do modern calligraphy. It is quite hard but the book is written in a really clear way, with how to's and examples, alongside space for you to practise letters. So hopefully it won't be too long until I have mastered it, although I know it will take a lot of practise.
