I Was Enchanted To Meet You...

So for those of you that follow me on twitter, you will know I am completely and utterly in love/obsessed with Taylor Swift. Recently she has been over in London doing 5 shows at the O2 Arena, and I was lucky enough to go to 4/5 of those shows!

I couldn't get tickets for the first show but managed to get tickets to the dates on the 2nd, 4th, 10th and 11th of February. On the 4th I was in the Pitt which is the standing section at the front, directly in front of the stage and I was in fact front row which was just incredible to be that close to Taylor!

On the 10th, the most magical day of all, we had VIP tickets. This meant we got a goodie bag on the way in which had a blanket, some wristbands, a light, a speaker, a tour brochure and some guitar picks in. As if this wasn't exciting enough, Taylors mum Andrea approached us at the beginning of the show and asked if we wanted to go down the front, but she realised that we had a 10 year old with us and said "sorry I can't take young ones, but don't worry this isn't for Club Red, if you want Club Red you have to be crazy during the show". For those of you that don't know, Taylor hosts a mini party after shows where approximately 20 fans can go and meet her backstage.

It got to the last chorus of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together which is the final song on her set list, and to be honest, me and my friend had given up on the idea we might go to Club Red. Then I saw Andrea out the corner of my eye and we both just went completely mental, at which point she called me down the stairs and asked if I had ever met Taylor, which I hadn't. She then asked if I wanted Club Red and I just broke down in tears and screamed yes (it was all rather embarrassing but I could not contain myself).
At the end of the show everyone that got Club Red had to meet at the corner of the arena and we were escorted backstage by security and a member of Taylor's management. 

The backstage area was decorated with red drapes and a photo booth, and Dominos pizza and sweets and drinks were all provided for us which was adorable. After about 20 minutes Taylor came out and went round to each group of friends, spending 10 minutes with each and just had a general chit-chat. She was the most down to earth person I have ever met in my life. Of course I could not let her pass without asking her one beauty related question. I asked her what foundation she used and she replied "well I don't know exactly what these guys put on my face at the moment, but normally I just use a tinted moisturizer" and I was like "but your skin always looks flawless" and she said to me "so does yours! It looks airbrushed!" (bless her but I was wearing foundation and had been crying for 2 hours..)

The last show was pretty emotional not going to lie. Literally wondering what I am going to do with my evenings now that I have no Taylor shows to go to.
Anyway, I just thought I should share this excitement with you guys and tell you all a little bit about what Club Red was like for me if you are a Taylor fan and are interested.
