Red Tour 2013 Toronto

So, it's been a week since one of the most amazing nights of my life!
The RED TOUR

This is my SECOND Taylor Swift concert. 

Her Fearless Tour was the first I went to.

What you don't know is that my two most favourite singer/songwriters of all time are Taylor Swift AND the unbelievably talented Ed Sheeran. 

So when I got these tickets for my birthday, I was head over heels with joy!

Let me just say...Ed Sheeran is making gingers look so fine these days!

To begin, the opening acts included Joel Crouse, Austin Mahone and Ed Sheeran.

I had no idea who Joel or Austin were before this concert.

I have to say that I wasn't a big fan of Austin Mahone. I have nothing against him. He's a talented guy, just not my type of music.

Joel Crouse on the other hand...I will most definitely be listening to some of his music as I do love my country.

Now, Ed Sheeran...

JAW DROP

UNBELIEVABLE!

He is so talented! And I genuinely mean that.

The 45 minutes that he sang just flew by. I could have listened to him all night.

Most favourite song: You Need Me I Don't Need You

I have those lyrics down pat!

I really do hope I can meet him one day, he just seems so down to earth.

And Taylor...I don't think I need to say much.

It was HER concert, and her WORLD TOUR

She was AMAZING!

Loving her was RED


She had two shows in Toronto back to back...45,000 people at each :O

One Friday night and one Saturday...Not to mention the MMVAs that her and Ed performed at on the Sunday after.

I give props to them and their hectic schedule.

It's a funny thing...I filmed so much of ed and taylor that night, but those videos are just terrible to watch.

First of all, I hate rewatching concerts because I get all sad that its over and wonder when the next time I can see these talented people again.

Secondly, I am horrible at filming when I am THAT excited.

The camera is all shaky because I'm more focused on dancing and singing than filming them 

But I mean, that's what a concert is about right!

Anyways, the concert went great and the day ran smoothly until the ride home.

Let's just say that what was meant to be a 1 hour train ride home turned to be a 4 hour adventure back home.

Yeah...I'm horrible with directions.

NOTE TO SELF: Try not to take the last train of the night going in the opposite direction where you need to go and end up 2 1/2 hours away from home.


I leave you with just a few pictures of that night!



Our Seats
Not exactly "front row" but I'm not complaining!


Her and Ed ended up on a smaller stage that was much closer to where I was sitting.
I was thrilled!




They had some of her outfits from her music videos on display.


I just MELT.

Hopefully I can see them again in the near future!
Maybe a meet and greet with Ed?

Or a *cough* engagement *cough*

I kid I kid...maybe..

Enjoy your weekend!

DIY TOMS

So....

I've sort of been MIA for a while :/
So much has been going on in my life since I started this blog. I started and finished my first year of University!

I'm not going to lie, there were times when I thought about doing a post during the school year, but I just kept pushing it off. Eventually I got so wrapped up in meeting new people, going out, and studying that I didn't even bother making time to write a post.

I'm going to TRY to create a post AT LEAST once a week. I think it is good for me to write down what I've been up to lately.

I am also hoping to start vlogging on youtube. Not necessarily for the views but I feel that it gives me more of a push to do more in my life. 

You see, when you are putting something on camera, you want it to be exciting. Hence, you try to do more in the day and try to make the most of it.

I recommend it to all of you, even if you don't want to post it for the public to see.

Hopefully this blog and youtube thing can continue into the school year when I go back in September (Yes, I did pass all my courses with honours too! :D) so that I can keep my family updated with what is happening in my life.

DIY TOMS
OUT with the OLD and In with the NEW

During the year, I had one specific shoe that I just could not stop wearing.

TOMS

Eventually, the fabric just could not hold my feet in any longer and they began to rip by the toes :(
I felt like Big Foot for a little while.

I've gotten a new pair since then, however I still wore my old TOMS.
Hoarder much?

I mean, they were my FIRST pairs of TOMS! I just love them!

So I thought I could tape them up, but that just looked ridiculous.

So I decided to give them a little makeover.

With some fabric, glue, and scissors, they looked brand spankin' new, and I can go on to wear them until more holes begin to form.

So here's what they looked like just before the "makeover".


What You Need:
- Fabric
- Fabric Glue
- Needle & Thread (Optional)
- Scissors
- Denim patches (or iron on patches)
- Old pair of TOM


1.   Trim any excess fabric around the holes of your TOMS

2.   Glue on denim fabric over the holes OR if you have iron on patches, iron them on (that's what I did)

3.   Cut out fabric to the size of front patch of the TOMS shoes. It is okay if the cut is a little big, you can just trim the excess later. It is better to have too much fabric than too little.

4.   You can use need an thread to hem the outer edges of the fabric for a cleaner finish if  you would like. Then apply the fabric glue to your TOMS and line up the fabric where you would like it to be.

5.   Set aside and allow to dry.

6.   You can also add fabric where ever you desire. I added it the the triangle part of the shoe and the backside for more detail :)




7.   Once glue has dried, trim any excess fabric and VOILA! You have a brand new pair of fashionable TOMS.




Hopefully I will have another post coming sometime soon!
