Night Air

Yesterday, we went down to the Academy in Manchester to see Jamie Woon. If you are looking for a new summer sound, definitely check him out! Along with the likes of Jessie J and James Blake, he was one of the nominees for the BBC Sound of 2011 Poll. His soulful sound is reminiscent of a young D'angelo mixed with a touch of modern day dubstep.

Last time we went to a gig (Janelle Monae), we waited in the blistering cold for over an hour but she did not even peep out once. So we were really happy when Jamie Woon came out to say hi. It's always nice to have the opportunity to meet singers before their fame blows up and they become untouchable. Nevertheless, we hope he blows up because his voice is amaaaazing!

While We Were Away

Been away for so long and we apologize immensely. We have had a mountain of work to do and endless, but very important exams. But i am finally finished. I had my last exam of my Law degree today so i am unofficially a graduate! (officially when i have the ceremony and stuff) But i am so happy. 4 months of freedom and holidaying until i have to go find a job/do my post grad degree. I can just do whatever i want, plus it means frequent blogging. Fikki still has exams till the 8th June :(

Anyway before the pressure was on, Fikki and i along with a friend went to a vintage market in stockport on V.E. day. It was a lovely fair and for an affordable price as well! i bought two dresses for £7 one of which i might wear to a wedding coming up. Fikki got a cute 80's crop top for £4. If anyone lives around the area and would love to go, the market pops up once every month. just visit their website HERE


and this is what we wore on the day...

On The Street Where We Live

It's pretty much sunny everyday now. I love it, its a shame i've got so much work to do. These were taken after we had spent the main part of the afternoon studying.

My Last Law Ball

Saturday was my last ball held for law students at my university. It was a well needed break i needed from the essay doom i am currently in. I have been attending this very event since my first year here and this somewhat signaled the end of a section of my life, as everything comes to a close and i shall be graduating.
The ball was held at Manchester town hall which is so beautiful. The food and the live band were great, wine not so much but i still drank it. All in all a fun night.
Excuse the crappy quality. my camera decided to be very silly on the night and didn't take pictures properly. so i gave up. These are dresses i liked that i managed to save/didn't look too dark when it came up...
I really need a new camera!
Now back to my essay doom.
