Okay, so I know I have been away for a looooong time but with going back to uni, working full time and basically looking like a slob 99% of the time I decided against blogging for a while. But I am back and I'm going to try my best to keep it going.
To begin with, I hope every one had a magical Christmas and are looking forward to the new year as much as I am. I still haven't made any plans yet for Saturday night but I rarely do until about 2 hours before. I'm sure I'll figure something out. 
Secondly, I also hope everyone has been making good use of the sales. I know I have. I've spent the majority of my Christmas money in Topshop and Urban Outfitters. 

Top: H&M   Coat: Topshop   Jeans: Topshop

The bf bought me this coat for Christmas, along with tickets to see Laura Marling and Coldplay. So excited for next year!! 
So what presents did everyone else get?

Piledriver Waltz.

So, it's that time of year again when all the students are going back to uni and I couldn't be more excited! I am moving back down to Leeds on Monday into my lovely new house with 3 of my lovely friends and I really cannot wait. I can tell this year is going to be so much better than last year. Last year I hated living in student accommodation, the noise at 4am was unbearable and living with messy people was not my cup of tea. But this year I'm living with a girl i've known for years and two other lovely girls that I got to know last year. Both of which are clean which is a massive plus.
So I am sitting in my bomb sight of a room, with mountains of clothes and shoes and bags that I am accumulated over the years getting far FAR too addicted to 'the sims' on facebook, I thought I would try and tear myself away for a few minutes and make a collage of clothes that I cannot wait to spend my student loan on! 
  A selection from H&M, Topshop and Asos. How cute are the gloves?! Safe to say I am very much looking forward to loan day...
Anyone else moving to uni/what are you loan day plans?

Summer in the city.

I have spent the last couple of days in Liverpool visiting one of my close friends who is at uni there, and I absolutely loved it! It is such a vibrant city and so modern. I will definitely be going back some time soon.
We went out on Thursday night to a bar called Chameleon and the night was called Stock Exchange I think? The drink prices change all night like the stocks and crash at one point where all drinks go dirt cheap. We then moved on to a shot bar, can't remember the name but it was lush. I'm usually rubbish with shots, barely managing one before having to get some fresh air and take deep breaths. But these ones were lovely. We ended up in a club called Heebie Geebies which is motown, and it was brilliant. It is probably my favourite music on a night out, but we don't have any where that plays it in Sunderland so it was a fun change.

I wore my floaty H&M skirt with my Primark blouse and belt. I felt a bit ballerina-rey so decided to put my hair in a tight bun. I really cannot wait to go back!

What the water gave me.

TGIF! For some reason, this week has felt like a loooong one. Pub times tonight to watch the match should make me feel a lot better about it though. Oh, and also the fact that it's pay day. Went into town this morning to get a key cut as suprise suprise, i've lost the key to my uni house. Typical me, I almost expected it to happen. I did buy a few things from Primark though. I am loving this whole 'wearing shirts under jumpers' thing. It looks really chic yet laid back and you can mix and match any shirt with any jumper. Within reason.

I absolutely loved this red one as soon as I saw it, perfect in time for Autumn as well. The snake print shirt underneath is also a Primarni special. It came together better than I pictured so I am very pleased. Plus the jumper, shirt AND necklace only came to £21. 
Also, what do you think of the hair colour? I am loving it.

You & I

Okay, so I know it has been a while since my last post but I do have valid excuses.
No1: I have been working 40 hours a week.
No2: My parents have been on holiday for 2 weeks and left me looking after the dog. Any free time I have off work goes on spending time with him.
No3: Due to the above reasons, I have spent the last 2 weeks in either my work clothes or joggers so outfit posts were a no go.
But I am glad to be back, and also glad to show you my new hair.
I dyed it blonde on Wednesday but absolutely hated it. After 30minutes of being blonde, I was already on my way down to superdrug to purchase ginger hairdye. I've been ginger before, and it lasted about a year I loved it that much, so just decided to go that colour again.
I'm really happy with the colour, and also happy to be back blogging again. It has been too long!
Hope everyone has been keeping well XOXO

Fallowfield hillbilly

ABSOLUTELY LOVED MANCHESTER! Seriously, I wish I was from there. So much better than Sunderland with regards to shops, things to see and do and the general atmosphere. 
Neil and I were up at 6am on Monday to catch the 7.30am train from Newcastle. Arrived at the hotel around 11am. It wasn't the nicest hotel in the world, we didn't even have a window! But it did the job and neither of us really minded as we were only there for the 1 night. After checking in we went and did shopping. And a lot of it. Literally walked around for 5 hours. I bought a hat, beautiful h&m midi skirt and a vintage Fred Perry polo. My feet were about to drop off at this point so we headed back to the hotel, got ready and went for a meal at Bella Italia and then the cinema to see Captain America. Chris Evans is a beauty. Drinks after were interesting... We ended up in Night and Day Cafe where there were 'comedians' on, but they were the most disgusting, foul people I have ever seen. We had to leave as we were starting to feel really uncomfortable because of the things coming out of their mouths haha. We then went to Dry bar, Odd then back to the hotel.
Next day we went to the Trafford Centre and it was AMAZING! Did not expect it to be as good as it was. I was just so fascinated with the building itself as the inside was so beautiful. The only thing I bought there was some Thornton's chocolate as nothing really caught my eye but it was defiantly worth a visit.

All in all, we both really enjoyed the trip away and are already wanting to go back!

Never come back.

It is becoming a bit of a habit of mine, quickly posting literally minutes before I need to leave the house. Going to a intimate gig tonight at Independent in Sunderland. One of the regions dingiest places, but everyone loves it just the same. The band's called Hyde and Beast, and they are really good. Looking forward to it, and also having a good drink after a hectic day at work. 
After work today I decided to have a little rummage around town and bought some foundation, lipstick and a lovely Topshop dress.

It only cost £6.30, so safe to say I was buzzing! Its a leather skirt and grey top combined, and I know it doesn't look very summery but I couldn't pass up on such a good bargain! 
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! XOX
