It was a beautiful sunny day in Manchester. If you’re a Mancunian, you know that you have to make the most out of this weather, seize the day and get out of the house. If you’re a blogger, you reaaaaaaally need to make use of the weather and take photos.

I picked this shirt up from Zara a while ago. It’s cute and versatile. It gives you a romantic look when  wearing on its own with a skirt or some nice slags. However, if you know me, I like giving my items a bit of a twist. The combination of romantic/rock-chic looks has been of my faves for many years now.

However, you should feel comfortable in whatever you choose. I don’t know about you guys but when wearing the ‘wrong’ outfit, I don’t feel confident and get a bit funny.

We went to London for my birthday last year which was when I picked up this lovely blue shirt with ruffles and frills from Zara.

“Oh perfect leather jacket, where art thou?”

For years I’ve been looking for the perfect leather jacket. Endless browsing and scrolling on the internet, popping into endless shops on the high street, nada, absolutely nada. “It just has to feel right” is what I kept telling myself. I’m very picky when it comes to my fashion (and men ;))… and then one day whilst having had a look around H&M, I spotted the perfect leather jacket. Perfect fit, perfect size, perfect length. YASSS, only took me a few years!

I am so in love with these skinny jeans, especially with the distressed details. They’re perfect for summer and when combining with quirky socks.

And don’t forget to smile. Life is all about the happy moments <3

‘You said I must eat so many lemons because I am so bitter, I said I’d rather be with your friends’ mates ‘cause they are much fitter.’

Ring a bell? This has got to be one of my favourite lines. Kate Nash landed a number one record in 2007 with ‘Foundations’.

Kate Nash proved to be a role model for modern feminists, articulating women’s issues in modern society in her songs. Needless to say that I was a big fan of her back in 2007 and have followed her career over the years.

Given recent events, Kate Nash came to Manchester and played a charity gig at Jimmy’s NQ which happens to be down the street from me. Scrolling through my twitter feed on the bank holiday Sunday, the MEN tweeted about the charity gig and mentioned Kate Nash being in the NQ handing out free hugs at ‘Vintage Cow’.

A couple of my friends and I made our way to Jimmy’s, donated a couple quid for the charity fund and waited in the tiny room downstairs. And when I say waited, I mean we literally stood right in front of the teeny-tiny stage.

I always thought, the older you get, the less you care about meeting musicians you look up to. Oh boy was I wrong.

Being able to connect with people through music is incredible but getting to see them live and actually being able to communicate with them, is a completely different level.

Kate opened her 30 minute gig engaging with the audience and showed support for the victims and families, as well as all Mancunians.

Her set included songs such as ‘Foundations’, ‘Dickhead’ and ‘Mouthwash’. The crowd sang along to her biggest hits.

Unfortunately the gig ended way too soon. However, we’ve had the chance to catch up with Kate. She is an absolute babe and super down to earth. It was a pleasure meeting her. It was the perfect Sunday afternoon.
