Parklife Festival 2010

June 22, 2010

Grab your tent and wellies, it’s that time of the year again – it’s Festival season! Tickets were sold in record time out for the hotly anticipated Parklife Festival 2010 situated in England’s Manchester. The Parklife festival takes place annually in Manchester’s Platt Fields with this year featuring over 40 acts across 6 stages with a line up that consisted of names such as Friendly Fires and Booka Shade. There was a real emphasis on value for money, top quality acts and other kinds of madness planned in order to kick start Summer with a bang. There are still opportunities to acquire tickets through competitions in the Bench Live website for other festivals such as Melt and Creamfields. The opportunity to win festival tickets will still be appealing to many.  I will certainly try to win a ticket. For more information about the Parklife Festival and other music events, check out the Bench Live website – my favourite place to get the latest news and views from the music world.

Katy Perry Style!

June 18, 2010

Since Katy Perry burst onto the scene in 2008 with the controversial song ‘I kissed a girl’, she has sold hundreds of thousands records as well as reaching the front of top fashion magazines. Thus, media attention has incessantly followed her wherever she goes. However, every picture I see her in she just looks great. She has such an original, unique fashion sense that has attracted the attention of the top fashion labels. Her style is one of quirkiness but does quite reach the level of eccentricity of other famous names such as Lady Gaga. Here she sports a few outfits that are reminiscent of 40s styling, a look she suits well.

Bench Live!

June 8, 2010

One of my favourite clothing brands has just built a new micro site called Bench Live (www.bench-live.com). This new website has been launched to increase Bench’s brand awareness and help Bench promote their music heritage that they are heavily involved in. In recent years Bench has been associated with Festivals such as Manchester’s Parklife Festival, Creamfields and Liverpool Sound City. I’ve had a browse through the website and it looks great. Bench Live provides you with information about forthcoming festivals and music events. You can purchase tickets to these events through this site and the opportunity to take part in competitions in order to win free tickets. There are interviews with music stars such as Lisa Lashes, Paul Van Dyke and The Sunshine Underground. There are fashion tips to what to wear to these events with a link back to the Bench Shop website. Basically everything you need if you’re a clothes and music fan…which I am.

Mark Ronson Couture!

June 3, 2010

Mark Ronson has to be one of the best dressed men out there right now, providing inspiration for all men. He is constantly being snapped in fresh, original outfits. He does’nt so much as follow trends but sets them. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to find out that Gucci have asked Mark Ronson to design a limited edition range of trainers that will be sold exclusively in a new  store, Gucci Icon-Temporary that recently opened up in London. Again, no surprise that these shoes are styled with Ronson’s iconic look – one being polka-dot and the other grey flannel. Both look great!

Deadmau5 Style!

April 21, 2010

I have been a huge fan of Gio-Goi for some time. Their T-shirts are some of my favourites. I am an even bigger fan of the DJ Deadmau5. So I was delighted to have recently learnt that Deadmau5 has been working in conjunction with Gio-Goi to sport some of their latest collections. Deadmau5 has always been a bit of a trendsetter so I thought this was the perfect marriage.

Gio-Goi and Deadmau5 launch the new Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

Here he is on the Decks whilst wearing one of Gio Goi’s T-shirts – one which I already have. I love it when celebs are pictured wearing clothes I have already bought.

Deadmau5 is playing at the McAllen Convention centre, New York, this weekend. If there wasn’t an ash cloud hanging over my head, i would probably consider the trip.
