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!
