A bit of a different outfit post today folks! I headed down to Salford Lads Club with my Uncle this morning as I had been complaining about being kind of bored of my current backdrop so he offered to take me to the famous Smiths landmark as he was going to be passing it anyway & so as a HUGE Smiths & Morrissey fan I jumped at the chance to take some photos in one of THE most iconic places ever! As you can see from the photos, it was pretty damn windy & my hair is all over the place ahahaha but I’m really happy with how the photos turned out!

While we were taking the pictures, the curator of The Smiths Room happened to be walking past & asked if we were Smiths fans & invited us in to have a look around the exhibition that had been shown yesterday, obviously we said yes, & headed inside to find a room covered in memorabilia & hundreds of post it notes written by various visitors & fans. My favourite bit had to be seeing a tambourine that a couple had caught when they were at a Smiths concert years & years ago when Morrissey himself threw into the crowd & had now kindly donated it to the club, amazing! Eee, I love it when unexpected things like this happen! (‘:

Also, I know a few of you guys are waiting on my Comic Con post & don’t worry, I will be blogging it very soon, I have just been collecting photos from other people etc
Anyway, I hope you all had a fab weekend, what have you all been up to?

  2. Great photos and location. I have just started to listen to their music and quite like a few of their tunes. I love that dress, I nearly bought it myself but the size 16 was too small for me.

  21. The curator 'happened to walk by' when we went a few years ago. I think they have CCTV on the front of the building as there are certain shots that are copyrighted. He does the exact same thing to us and invited us in, and also asked for a donation. They're extremely protective of anyone taking photos of the building. I'm surprised you got these shots tbh so congrats haha. They've come out really nice (: your hair looks so good against the green. Amazing!
