Recent work picks

I currently work part-time in Matalan and so having spent a lot of time around their stock I have plenty of time to compile lists of what to buy come payday. Here are my current favourites, I will be honest and say before working there it's definitely not a shop I'd associate with my style, but these days I find myself lusting after many a classic piece and I tend to be the only person I know wearing them - always a bonus. Matalan is so reasonably priced for the quality so I definitely take advantage of my staff discount!

A romantic visit to Edinburgh... Part 1

So a couple of weekends back it was my boyfriend Jordan's 19th birthday, after much deliberation when planning a few months back we decided to go to Edinburgh for the weekend, if I remember correctly it was his suggestion fueled by his love for Irvine Welsh. It was an amazing weekend in all and I'm already excited thinking of ideas for my own birthday in March!
We stayed in a guest house which we stumbled upon through and it was even nicer than we were expecting, especially since it didn't cost much at all - Edinburgh Regency Guest House if you're wondering, and we'd both highly recommend it! It was definitely the perfect walking distance from the main areas, even when we were using a map in the cold and dark whilst carrying all of our stuff!
We arrived late Friday night, so starting Saturday morning we visited everything we could think of...

Self explanatory, interesting but probably wasted on two teenagers lacking artistic knowledge

Definitely more our scene

Might even say it's better than Newcastle's Hancock

But there's always a bit of Newcastle everywhere you go!

To show how time is a concept decided by the individual, for example the older  you get the faster time goes

the seventh floor roof terrace views were amazing

Classic castle shot, definitely a city with great views

bathroom shot before heading out

After all that exploring and good look around the shops, we headed back to change then out for a meal and to finally see Skyfall (which was excellent) for details on where we ate see Jordan's blog, day two coming soon...

autumnal wishlist

autumnal wishlist

Autumnal Wishlist -
Next skirt, H&M necklace, Monki coat, AA nail varnish, AA clutch, Stella McCartney shorts, ASOS heels, AA riding pants, Monki shirt, H&M boots

Very basic, simple items are definitely my staple pieces at the moment, so Scandinavian brands like H&M and Monki encapsulate my style perfectly, if only Newcastle had a Monki, my life would be complete... and an American Apparel for that matter, will definitely have to visit friends who go to uni in Manchester and Glasgow for AA purchases to made!
