Well, I'm back from my little blogging break. I've got some posts written up, including this one, that should hopefully help me get back into the swing of things!
A little while ago, now, I went out with a friend to see Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes. I haven't been to a live gig in so long for a number of reasons - sometimes I find out too late, sometimes I don't have enough money or anyone to go with and, well, sometimes I just don't go! But I'd listened to Clairy Browne on the recommendation of the same friend I went with and their soul-infused tunes are very much to my taste so I decided to go along, this time. And, boy, was I glad that I did! Such a great show. I was right at the front dancing along to every song. This is what I wore...
Apologies for the phone shot. First time I've ever been successful with wing(ed) eyeliner.
My friend prefers catching people unawares, as it were, when taking their photos. But I actually like how this one turned out. Except I didn't adjust the colours properly so it looks a bit too blue.

And a polaroid of me, taken by mum before I left. I lowered the flash setting instead of increasing it so it's really dark.
and the Bangin' Rackettes! As the title suggests, seeing these ladies renewed my life-long desire to be a backup singer/dancer. But I have a feeling I'd need to be good at both singing and dancing for that. Ha.
Some music for anyone who hasn't heard them before.
And I guess this song is on a beer commercial?
If you get a chance to see them live then definitely do! But if you don't, you can still listen to some of their songs on YouTube, which I highly recommend.
