#OasisExhibition Manchester


Location: Old Granada Studios, Quay Street, Manchester

Being from Greater Manchester, it may not come as a big surprise to know that I am a huge Oasis fan. When they soared to fame in the 90's, I was growing up hearing their songs on the radio in the car every Saturday. Then, as a teenager when I began to attend house parties, you could always guarantee someone would stick on Wonderwall and everyone would drunkenly embrace, shouting the lyrics down your ear towards the end of the night. Oasis have shaped a generation and even the behaviour of a city, so I was pretty excited and intrigued as I headed down to Old Granada Studios to check out photography and videos plus memorabilia of the infamous rock band that formed a huge part of my adolescence.

The Pumpkin Patch

Location: Kenyon Hall Farm, Warrington, England

It's just one week to go until the spookiest occasion of the year arrives, so in preparation yesterday I headed over to Kenyon Hall Farm to visit their pumpkin patch! Based in Warrington, the farm was pretty hard to get to and I and my boyfriend resorted to climbing over gates and cutting through fields to get there, but once we arrived it was well worth the epic journey. The farm has a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own, a tent with loads of pre-picked pumpkins to choose from as well as a maze to wander around and get lost in. Choosing your own pumpkin fresh from the patch and carving it yourself is definitely the ultimate autumnal activity in the run-up to Halloween, and wrapped up wearing my fluffy coat and boots I loved embracing the excitement of being at the farm!

Three Things Before 2016 Ends

Farm Land Warrington

Location: Culcheth, Warrington, England

My favourite time of year has finally rolled around, and with melty hot chocolates, blankets and TV shows and weekend visits to farms and festivals, I am in the full swing of Autumn! After jetting off to Ghana back in January, and arriving home as Spring begun, I've actually been craving cold weather and the chance to wrap up with a scarf and mittens. This year has been a strange year for me, I've felt unusually overwhelmed about turning twenty-three and posed the question "what am I actually doing with my life" far more times than I care to admit. It's taken a lot of months of hard work and hard thinking to figure out what it is exactly that I do want and how to put my plans into action. Although I'll admit, I'm quite excited for 2016 to just be done and dusted, there're three things to keep me going.
