Yesterday was my boyfriend's Mum's cousin Alison's 50th birthday (phew, that is complicated isn't it!) and she celebrated in style with a big bash at a local rugby club near Manchester. I love any excuse to dress up so I took the opportunity to channel my inner 50s vixen as you can see from my outfit below, and the boy looked pretty dapper in his suit and bow tie too!
I spent about an hour trying to pin my hair in a vintage style and managed to get them looking kinda like victory rolls but I'm not sure how successful I was!
The night included a performance by Alison's husband's band Newton and a brilliant performance by her 19 year old daughter Kate's band The Lottery Winners. I absolutely recommend checking TLW out - they won "Live and Unsigned" a few years ago and are on their way to stardom!
After that we made our way over to Mathew Street, the so-called 'Birthplace of The Beatles' to see the Cavern Club. The philistine that I am I didn't realise it was still an actual club so I was really happy that we could go in and have a drink! A half pint of John Smith's went down nicely! Here is a dashing photo of me and the boy grinning outside before we went in.
We even did the pose from the cover for 'Help!' as we found a good bit of wall to do it against - a nice German lady thought we were so hilarious she had a picture with us too!
All in all, this weekend has been a blast! How was your weekend? And are you a Beatles fan too?
Much love! x
