Dark Night




 hat and jumper - Primark // jeans - H&M // bag - Topshop //
Boots - Garage shoes

Not long to christmas day now girlies! I can't wait  - not for presents, but just to have 4 days off in a row - it's going to be fab! I can't wait to get back to my parents house in the country and slob out on the sofa, in front of the telly with a tin of quality streets and a glass of Baileys! I've got lots of plans for festive drinks and I've already done my xmas food shop so I'm sorted for pringles, toblerone, crisps, nuts and biscuits. Now just have to get through the next 4 days at work and we're on our way! What are your xmas plans this year girls?

Misty Mountains


 Hat, Jumper and Boots - Primark // Gilet - Dorothy Perkins // 
Jeans - H&M

I love the classic simplicity of this outfit and could pretty much wear it every day - just switching to a new jumper and jeans each time! I'm so glad I bought this faux fur vest as I can see i'm going to get so much wear out of it in the next few months, also the jumper is really versatile as I'm wearing it tucked up here, it actually comes to just above the knees and has lovely batwing sleeves so it's nice and loose. Slouchy Sunday kinda wear.

Barcelona Travel Diary // Day 4



 This was our last full day in Barcelona, before heading back to chilly old England, so we started it right with amazing gourmet doughnuts from CHOK Barcelona. All the different flavours were incredible looking but I went for a classic triple chocolate -  God just looking at these pictures I'm craving them again. After that we rambled down La Rambla and saw a photo opportunity in these lion statues! I've never climbed the statues in Trafalga Square - maybe because it seems like to much of a touristy thing to do - but in Barcelona I was a tourist so we jumped at the chance to clamber onto the back of the lions and pull some poses!

 After our bit of fun we wondered over to a beautiful park- that I can't quite remember the name of - and admired the blue pools, water fountains and lush greenery before heading up to the Cosmo Caixa museum, which houses a section of rainforest, fish, snakes and capybara (giant guineapigs) in a giant glasshouse. Then we trekked up Mount Tibidabo to a lovely church on top of the hill there, hoping to get some breathtaking views of the city, but it wasn't to be as the whole place was swathed in an eerie fog which lent the setting a mysterious atmosphere, especially as it is right next to a funfair so you can hear the music and the occasional shrieking of children! Whilst we were up there we saw a man taking pictures of the church from a camera mounted on a drone, which later ended up in the Guardian!

 A thunderstorm hit the city as we left Mount Tibidabo and we were treated to a pretty cool lightning show that night, which we joked was better than the magic fountain show! The night was finished off perfectly with paella and mojitos at a restaurant before catching some zzzz's and flying home the next day.

50 shades of grey


Jumper, jeans and boots  -Primark // Furry gilet - H&M

A few weeks ago I went on a faux-fur mad shopping spree and bought several gilets and jackets...this was one that I bought in H&M as it was only £29.99. Theres nothing better than wearing faux fur in winter, feeling snug and soft and oh so cosy. I teamed it with my Primark chelsea boots (£10) and cable knit jumper (£13). Yay for grey! On a side note - have you seen the 50 shades trailer!?! Cannot wait - Mr Dornam is so hot!
