Photo Diary: My mini-trip to ATL!

Hey everyone! I've been such a terrible blogger lately but I promise I'll make it up to you with lots of September posts! I always have this goal of trying to post 20 times a month, but I never make it. Sometimes close, but I usually only post like 12 times a month. BUT starting next month (which is 2 days away!) I'll post much more....promise. Anyways, the reason I've been such an awful blogger this week is because I just went to Atlanta to see Aerosmith on Thursday! If you follow me on Instagram you probably already knew...I had the most wonderful concert experience of my life and I've been facing some terrible post-concert depression with a side of some on/off hysterical crying sessions ever since. I took most of my photos from the trip with my iPhone as well, it's just so much easier and the iPhone 5 camera is very impressive. Here's my favorite photos from the trip...

A car selfie....a picture of the boring but still kind of pretty road to Atlanta....a photo of the city....and a picture my mom took of me to post while I was doing my short Others Follow IG takeover.

After we got to the arena we walked around a bit since we still had a while to wait. Atlanta is so beautiful and I'm loving the giant ferris wheel! As for the photo on the right, I remember being in the same spot super excited for my first Aerosmith two years ago so I snapped another pic of this entrance for memory.

I'm obsessed with the panoramic camera feature on my iPhone but always forget to use it....but when I was bored sitting in the food court of the CNN center I decided to take a panoramic shot..it's so pretty in there to me! 

On this tour, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators were the opening act. They were really good (SLASH DUH AMAZING OBVIOUSLY) but I still wish Cheap Trick would've toured with Aerosmith again, because they're another one of my favorite bands. I also reunited with one of my fave gals Peri which was of course really fun, and I met some other fans I talk to on Twitter which was great! I love meeting other people who love Aerosmith as much as I do! 

I was so lucky enough to be one of the few girls to go inside the barricade in front of the catwalk to see the show which I've never done, and I never even knew was possible to do until that night! I've always wanted to see them front row without that barricade between me and the stage, and I got to Thursday night! It was the best concert I've ever been to. Second best day though...my best day ever being the day I met Steven at the Tampa concert in 2012, haha! But the concert on Thursday was that true Aerosmith fan experience for me, and it was so much fun being close to my favorite rockstars like I was and just being able to sing along with Steven right in front of my face like he was. Also, his eyes look dark but Steven was totally looking at my camera when I took that picture on the right. I remember him making eye contact and looking at my phone a bit while I snapped a few pictures. I didn't even have time to freak out either but it's okay, because it's all catching up with me now.

So yes, since Thursday night I've been uncontrollably on/off crying with permanent ugly crying face over these guys. Maybe some of you will think I'm weirdly obsessive. But, I would be lying if I said I wasn't. Every time I go see them I go on this long discussion about how much this band means to me, and here I am to do it again. Words can't even describe at this point how much of an inspiration Steven is to me with not only the music but just his road to fame and never giving up on his dreams, so it really helps me when I'm feeling discouraged about mine. Aerosmith's music always makes me feel so much better when I'm down, and my love for them is for life. 

Thanks for reading everyone! I had to take one day off from posting about my main love fashion to express my feelings about my other main love, as you can see! Hope you're all having a great weekend so far! xx
