20 SONGS TO CHILL OUT TO

Saturday


Alexa, play my Chilled Playlist.
There have been lots of new songs out that I have been loving lately so I thought I'd share my new playlist with you. I always think it is great to share artists and songs with people that they could love but they haven't heard yet. These songs are good to chill out to, especially when you might be feeling stressed by the current state of the world.

My Top 3 from the playlist
1. Doin' Time - Lana Del Rey
Obviously Lana is my favourite artist of all time and this is a cover of the 1996 Doin' Time by Sublime. I would recommend Lana's version of the song, even to people who don't usually like Lana Del Rey's style of music.

2. Television / so Far so Good - Rex Orange County
A new favourite artist of mine. This song is my favourite by Rex Orange County, it's just so catchy and very summer.

3. Choose sides - M.O & AJ Tracey
This song is the type of song you want to listen to when you're getting ready for a night out, that's all I'm going to say.

Let me know what your favourite songs of the summer are in the comments!

EXPLORING DUBLIN AND SEEING LANA DEL REY


Exploring Dublin

Lana Del Rey singing live

If you have seen my posts on Instagram, you will know that I travelled to Dublin last week, primarily to see Lana Del Rey. Yes. It was as good as I expected!

My friend Robyn and I travelled to Dublin last Thursday evening, but the concert wasn't until Saturday.

On Friday, we just walked around Dublin and did touristy things. We walked around the shops on Grafton Street, visited Trinity College, sat in St. Stephen's park then had dinner at Zizzi, followed by a drink at Bad Bobs in Temple Bar.







A post shared by Lauren Kenny๐Ÿฆ€ (@_laurenken) on
Be warned, the Centre of Dublin is quite an expensive place to visit, especially for drinks. We didn't take that much money to use for tourist activities but if we did I definitely would have visited the Leprechaun Museum and would have gone on an open top tour bus.

Seeing Lana Del Rey Live 
Gates to the concert opened at 4pm but they let us in at 3:30pm. It was in Malahide Castle & Gardens which was stunning and not like any other concert I'd been to before.


After arriving at the stage, second row from the front at 3:30pm, we soon realised that nothing was starting on the stage until 6:30pm. We didn't leave for food, drinks or anything because we had such a good spot and as people piled in behind us, we wouldn't have got back to our spot.

After waiting for around 3 hours, the first support artist, Kojaque performed. He brought Luka Palm and Kean Kavanagh from Soft Boy Records on stage with him. There were rumours around the audience that Lana Del Rey asked them to join her performing that night literally two days before the event. If you haven't heard of these guys, which I hadn't until they performed, then go check them out!

The second support artist was called Tamino, who I also hadn't heard of prior to the concert. He had an amazing voice but his songs weren't really for me.

Lana Del Rey didn't come on stage until 9pm but she was definitely worth the wait. As we were near the front, we were surrounded by superfans who had travelled from all over Europe and the rest of the world to see her. She started with Born To Die and then went on to sing newer songs and old songs too. She sung her cover of Doin' Time for the first time that night. There were swings and palm trees giving it a California summer vibe.

The whole thing was amazing and Lana's voice was even better in person. Seeing as how Lana Del Rey hardly ever comes to the UK I had never seen her in concert before and have wanted to see her for around 7 years, it was a dream come true.

One downside though, is that so many people were shoving and becoming quite selfish with wanting to get to the front. As a result, lots of people started arguing and shouting at each other. I just concentrated on not falling over and tried to ignore all of that as I'd waited so long for this I wasn't going to let anything get in the way.

She walked off the stage down to the front of the audience, it was madness. I was about 5 metres from her! A lot of people got selfies with her and autographs, unfortunately I didn't but I was just grateful to attend one of her shows.

Make sure to check out my personal and blog Instagram accounts to see videos of the concert and more photos of my trip to Dublin.
