I'm acting like i'm in an Eastenders episode

Orange floral dress: River Island
Demin pumps: Primark
Cream crocheted cardigan: Topshop

This is what I wore last night.

My nan very kindly sent me £10 for Easter and I already had a £20 credit note from River Island so I treated myself to this dress. I love its such a great length and so comfy. The material is great, does not crease which is always a plus. I feel so summery in it! They have it in yellow too so that might have to be mine come next payday. I have only been paid 6 days and i'm already wishing my next one will come around. My money situation is tragic!

My friend won Wombats tickets in a competition but already had another gig booked so couldn't go. He very kindly gave them to me and my boyfriend. The gig was amazing, so imtimate. It was at the Borderline, just off Tottenham Court Road and must have only had 150 people max. So different to when I saw them last month in Hammersmith. We had seats right up in the gods. Turned out to be quite a random night to be honest which are always the best. We got to London about 7pm and as it was a competition there was no warm up act and the Wombats were on stage at 8pm. Hence we paniced as we were going to find somewhere nice for dinner and ended up in Subway! The gig finished at half 9 and we were going to find a nice pub to go for a few drinks and as we were walking back to the station someone was flyering for Punk. Free entry before 11 and drinks were 2-1. It would have been rude not to have a little nosy haha! There was only about 15 people in there but the music was really good. I think we are going to organise a night there on a Friday as I think it has the potential to be a really good night!

Considering I was suppose to have a quiet weekend, I ended out going out 3 out the 4 nights and have made a massive dent in the wages. Going to have to stay in next weekend haha!

Hope everyone made the most out of your bank holiday weekend!
