Festival Fun

Long time no post ! Well, a lot has happened since my last blog post and I've been super busy - things are rarely this busy for me :P
Last weekend, a really amazing event took place : The Mad Hatters Music Festival.
I don't think i've mentioned this before but I love music and I love performing. I've been playing guitar, singing & writing my own songs since I was 12. It's my first love and kind of ties in with my love for writing. 
The Festival took place not far from where I live and I was given the chance to showcase my music. I did an acoustic set on both days and I absolutely loved it. Performing feels amazing and the adrenaline rush is insane, I love it.
My lovely friends - Summer & Holly - took some really nice pictures of me on stage so I thought i'd share them with you :) 
On a slightly soppier note, i'd like the thank everyone who came to see me, it really made me feel so happy. Kudos to my friends for showing up and supporting me I'd also like to say a very special thank you to my wonderful boyfriend who accompanied me on stage both days, thank you for being so patient with me.
Hope you enjoy the pictures !
Love, Kate xx

Down By The River

There's this really quaint little town I like to go to, it's so quiet and so beautiful. There's a small stream that runs through the village and these pictures were taken right by the river.
It's a really old medieval town on a hill surrounded by fields - it has yet to loose it's charm. Today was a casual day and I thought why not make the most of the trip out & take some pictures.  
My outfit is pretty simple,  I'm wearing some casual ripped skinny jeans from ASOS paired with a small printed crop top from Urban Outfitters. My shoes are my favorite pair (and only pair) of leather brogues by Clarks. They are incredibly comfy and I think it's fair to say they've lasted me a pretty long time !
I don't want to make this all about my outfit so I added a few pictures of the area. I hope you enjoy them :) x

Love, Kate x

HP Studio Tour

A little while back, I had the chance to attend the Harry Potter Studio Tour near London. I can't even begin to explain how extraordinary and purely magical it was.
You are given privileged access to all the sets & props used in the movies. You are free to roam around the vast area and your eyes are constantly looking at something, whether it be a huge set or a tiny - yet very special prop.
This place is a dream come true for all Potterheads. Whether you prefer the films or the books doesn't matter here, your imagination runs wild regardless. For me the best part of the whole experience is that you can take as many pictures as you like. They even encourage you to do so ! As you can probably imagine, I took an excessive amount of photos.. so I've picked my favorite ones and i'll be sharing them with you :)
I've also decided to limit the amount I show you because I really don't want to spoil your trip and give anything away. Enjoy the magic ! x
