Little Mix in Leeds with First Direct Arena!

As a blogger I am super lucky to be invited to exciting events, every now and again I get little ‘pinch me is this really happening’ kind of moments. An email from First Direct Arena landed in my inbox asking me if I would like to come and see Little Mix in Leeds, in one of their VIP suites. It took me all of about two seconds to reply ‘yassss’ okay maybe not quite so unprofessional but you get the gist.  I was surprised at just how easy it was to get to arena, there was a huge car park just across from the arena so parking wasn’t a problem. There was Little Mix fans everywhere, such a fun atmosphere! I made my way to the VIP entrance literally did not queue for a second, amazing! I am used to standing in line for a good hour or so usually. After the security checks, I made my way into the bar as our suite wasn’t quite ready yet!Little Mix first direct arena Leeds

It was lovely to meet Krissy and some fellow bloggers and journalists, Lucy, Leanne, Stacey and Eleanor. They were so friendly and welcoming, all such lovely girls! I hope I meet them at another event sometime because they were such fab company. It was time to go up to our suite and we got taken up into a private elevator, I felt super swanky at this point.Little mix leeds first direct arenaWe were shown to our suite, number 14 and ah it was amazing, there were pick & mix goodie bags, a drinks bar, menu’s a glitter station, sofas, bar stool chairs and of course the incredible view of the concert.  I’m sorry I didn’t actually get a picture of the suite itself from the inside, it was so plush and gorgeous but there were some people who brought children to the event and I didn’t feel right photographing them without permission etc. We had ‘black magic cocktails’ there was an alcoholic and mock-tail style version for children and designated drivers haha some yummy nibbles too. Little Mix First Direct Arena LeedsWe watched as the arena slowly began to fill up, we talked to some people about the sponsor of the area; First Direct bank, and some of the cool perks they give their customers such as express entrances to the area, complimentary bottled water, chips and ice cream (erm free chips and ice cream what more can a girl want, am I right?!) We were then served some delicious food, look at the cheese, there was also sweet potato fries, I was in heaven at this point really.

Most of us chose to add glitter to our faces in true Little Mix style, we all enjoyed the support acts with a face full of glitter, and some more black magic cocktails, whilst waiting for the girls to come on stage… We did a little quiz all about Little Mix, and Lucy won a huge Hotel Chocolat hamper, it looked insane.  Well, Little Mix certainly know how to put on a show, and boy can those girls sing. Everyone even the dad’s were seen bopping their heads to the music, who could resist? With classics like ‘shout out to my ex’ ‘touch’ and ‘power’ there was smoke, fireworks, glitter canons. They didn’t only sound amazing, they looked it. They were so interactive with the audience it was such a lovely atmosphere. I had such a fun night and the PR girls were SO warm and friendly, they felt just like friends, it felt so relaxed and casual  it was such an amazing experience, so thank you for inviting me First Direct Arena! I am still finding tiny pieces of glitter in my bed, my car, the list goes on…
