Liverpool quartet and hotly tipped band Circa Waves released an energetic indie-pop feel with the similarities of The Strokes and The Libertines.
Their clever lyrics were wrapped around loud distorted guitar riffs, hard-hitting drum solos and lively vocals – reliving the sound from the early noughties indie scene.

Their melodic yet propulsive rock sound was…
The young two-piece garage punk band turned a few heads on the Lake Stage with their heavy rock and angry lyrics.
Slaves are Isaac Holman, 22, on drums and vocals and Laurie Vincent, 20, on guitar. Holman attracted the crowd with his screaming singing and cockney accent which received a positive and rebellious response from the audience.

So if I need Australian followers or Australians to help me out before I start travelling, do I need to create an Australian blog? (Example blog.au) Or just hashtag Australia? Help…
In brief: Do I go to Harlow College to grab a journalism diploma but earn no money for three months? OR do I continue working my full time waitress job and part time newspaper job to save more money and head off to Australia sooner?
I have a huge desire to travel (as do many 20 somethings), yet I also have the desire to become a successful journalist along the way. Don’t ask me what I want to…
So I’m the kind of person who forgets to moisturise daily and finds it a bit of a chore – so this is the IDEAL product to get it all done in one!
The quote for this product is “Buffs your backside and slays dead skin, leaving you angel soft” – and they couldn’t have described it better! This is exfoliation and moisturisation all in a single product.
When using Buffy, I held the bar and ran it across parts of the body that needed it the most, focusing on the backside, legs, back of arms and top of back. I put the bar down and started to slowly massage it all in, enjoying the scent of cocoa butter, almond and lavender as I pampered. It was extremely blissful.
The exfoliation was comforting, not too intense, and enough to really feel the dead skin being scrubbed away. I felt instant moisture as the oils stayed on the skin leaving it incredibly soft. The subtle scent remains on your body as you pat yourself dry.
I couldn’t stop running my hands along my arms and legs, amazed at how soft I felt! This sensation didn’t look or feel greasy, but it does feel like a moisture overdose, which is exactly what I needed.
I suffer from slight dry patches and a little eczema, so a lot of exfoliating products can sting if they are too rough or if they include string citrusy ingredients. However, Buffy Body Bar did not leave any redness or stinging sensation during use as it only contains the softest essential oils and butters, including ground rice. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who already have baby soft skin, it would be a pointless purchase!
This will definitely be a regular buy on my LUSH shopping list!

We felt like we travelled back centuries when we arrived at the Swallow Belstead Brook Hotel. It was during lunch hours, a warm summers day, and the atmosphere was quiet and very relaxed.
We were welcomed by our waitress and shown to our table, layered with clean white linen, polished glasses and silverware. This applied to every other table in three sections of the restaurant – it was a classic…
