About two months ago The Datsuns announced a UK tour, and I could barely take the excitement! I got tickets to see them at The Lexington, which is a great little venue in North London. After a bit of a think, I realised that seeing them once just wouldn’t be enough, so my boyfriend and I got tickets to see them in York as well. And I’m so glad we did! The venue couldn’t have been better, and their set list was absolutely brilliant. After the gig I snuck in backstage, and by snuck in I mean walked across the stage and let myself in backstage, hah. It is kind of odd though, when you meet one of your favourite bands and realise they are just really nice and friendly normal people, but with the coolest jobs in the world. Ended up staying there for at least an hour, chatting about everything from music to halloween costumes. It was a really good night, followed by a five hour long journy to get back to London the next day, which was less great, hah.

Disposables from when I saw Robert Plant at the iTunes festival on the 8th of September. I've been lucky enough to see him twice, first time in 2007 or 2008 with Alison Krauss. He's an absolutely amazing performer, and a living legend.

Throwback to some day in September, walking around central London with my boyfriend in matching boots and skinny jeans. My Dr Martens lifetime boots are probably one of my best buys ever - just the fact that they've got a lifetime guarantee is amazing! If I wear them out, they'll repair them or replace them, how good is that?! A bit pricier than a normal pair, but well worth every penny. They'll keep me comfortable and cool until I'm eighty.

We had some lovely and warm days in the beginning of October but summer's defintitely over now, and I'll be wearing about a million layers for the next five months. Here in my Levi’s shirt and denim jacket, scarf from Zara, second hand sheepskin coat, topshop Jamie jeans, and Dr Martens boots. Oh, and my lover on the left.

A few pictures I took with a disposable camera when I went to see Sweden's finest garage rockers The Hives in August. The quality is anything but great, but I love the rough and raw vibe. Later this month it's The Datsuns x 2, before Motöhead and The Damned in November, followed by Mark Lanegan in January - woop woop!
