Hello there, how is everyone's summer going? Mine has been going pretty well except for the fact that I haven't had much opportunity to go to any festivals, events, club nights, or concerts this year due to crappy work hours. My alternative wardrobe languishes unworn in my closet and I think the only makeup I can remember how to do involves the Naked2 palette. It's not that I haven't been up to anything enjoyable, it's just that I COULD USE A NIGHT OUT IN A CORSET AND PURPLE LIPSTICK AND RIDICULOUS BOOTS OR SOMETHING UP IN HERE.
On that note, here are some pictures from a Canadian music festival called Terminus that occurs yearly in Calgary. These pictures are from when I attended last year. (PROCRASTINATE MUCH? Jeez.)

I decided to have some fun with my crappy looking nails. I used the Nails, Inc Bling it on Rebel kit. It is hard to see in this photo but the matte "leather effect" nail polish has a really neat texture.

My evening started out with a band I had never seen live before, Die Warzau. It was not the kind of music I normally listen to but I do enjoy seeing different types of bands when I go to festivals.
A standout for me that night was the performance by Psyche, who are originally from Edmonton (where I live) but have been based out of Germany for quite some time. I loved their 80's pop sound; they were excellent live.
Another band that I really enjoyed was Tactical Sekt. I had heard of them, but was not particularly familiar with them. They blew me away! They had excellent energy and kept the crowd dancing.
The final performance was [:SITD:]. I had seen them before but they are always a treat to watch; you can't go wrong with some [:SITD:] in my opinion!
How has your summer been so far?
