Birmingham trip- Ke$ha and LMFAO

I went to Birmingham for the first time this weekend and I loved it! I took my brother to see Ke$ha and LMFAO for his birthday. I thought a nice trip away from the construction site that is my home would be much better than buying him a CD or a new shirt.

I got a bargain hotel (Ibis, £35) which was right by the coach station and the Bullring, we were also in the middle of Chinatown which is perfect because my brother loves anything Chinese related. Me and my brother are both following the Weight Watchers plan but the minute we woke up to go on our trip the plan went out the window and we spent the weekend eating out and living the party lifestyle. You can't go and see Ke$ha and LMFAO without lots of vodka and glitter, I think it's the law.
I loved the O2 Academy, it really is a great venue. It was nice and small and the gig felt like one big party in a club. The best bit of the show was when Ke$ha sang one of my fave songs- Animal.

I managed to not go crazy in the Bullring and got a few house things in the sale and some nice Body Shop shower gel. I thought I would save my money for the bloggers meet up on the 23rd which I am very excited about!!


Have you been anywhere nice recently? Going to any good gigs soon?

  11. I actually went to the bullring very recently, whilst visiting my friend at birmingham uni!
    to be honest, it kind of intimidated me and i didn't end up even buying anything ^_^
    oh and i agree, vodka IS needed.
    glad you had fun! :)
