• My Concert Essentials •

It is only one more day until I get to see the magical ginger genius that is, of course, Mr. Ed Sheeran. I am so excited for this concert and I felt it was only right to do a quick blog post on what I am bringing with me.

Although mine is not pictured, the number one essential that you need to bring to a concert is your ticket! Remember, if you forget your ticket, you cannot get into the concert. That is everyone's worst nightmare. Always have your ticket when you are going to a concert.

                   - A Bag -

I feel that it is important to bring a few things to a concert to be prepared. That is why a suitable bag is important. I borrowed my bag from my aunt and it is from Oasis ( not entirely sure if it's still being sold or not ). The great thing about my bag is that it is a cross body bag. It also has three compartments and it is not too big. It is the perfect size plus all of my items fit. I feel that cross body bags are probably the most suitable for a concert because you are guaranteed that your items will be safe. My bag also has a zip and a lock so my items will be pretty secure.

            - A Small Purse -

        €6.99 - Claire's Accessories 

Although I have a big purse, I wanted to bring a small coin purse instead so I am not rooting for money. I feel that this size is perfect to bring to a concert. Also, can we just appreciate how cute it is?

- A Portable Charger / Charger Phone Case -

I ordered mine from Amazon. A charger phone case is extremely important for a concert, especially if you are travelling. Naturally, on a long journey, you will want to listen to music, text people or scroll through social media. Before you know it,  your phone will be on the verge of dying before the concert even begins! That is everyone's worst nightmare. The phone case will literally save the day.

            - A Hairband -

I think it costed €5.99 and it is from New Look. I have been growing out my fringe because I want to have an up-do for my debs. However, it has been an absolute nightmare trying to keep it tidy. I really wanted to get a flower crown but when I saw this, I felt it was the perfect combination of something pretty and something to keep my hair tidy. Hairbands are perfect for a concert as they keep your hair out of your face.

           - Poncho -

               €4.00 - Tiger

Rain Ponchos are a must for an outdoor concert. They may be crazy looking, but they keep you from getting soaked. You can just roll them up in your bag and you are good to go! 

      - Concealer & Powder -

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - €6.99
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - €5.99

Unfortunately, I will be travelling to get to the concert and I will be putting on my makeup early in the morning. The powder and the concealer are a convenient size and they are very travel friendly. I can just touch up my makeup before the concert.

                - EarPhones - 

        Ear Pollution- €7.99 - HMV

As I have stated above, I will be travelling to get to and from the concert. I will be with my friends but there is a possibility of them all falling asleep. I just like to have my earphones with me regardless of the situation.

             - Fluffy Socks -

I got mine in a multipack in Primark. I cannot remember what price but I am sure they were very cheap. I feel after the concert I will want to take my feet out of my docs after a long day of walking and standing. Fluffy socks are the way to go!

Right now I am incredibly hyped for this concert. I will definitely have a blog post up about the whole day and the concert on Saturday or Sunday, depending on my level of exhaustion. I hope you enjoyed this post.

Are you going to a concert this year? Let me know in the comments!
