Hello again! I'm currently on the train journey from hell back from London so thought I would schedule a little update so you lovely lot had something to read while I snooze tomorrow - I've been unintentionally blogging pretty much every day since I got back from Kavos in July and been enjoying it so much that I'm trying to keep it up!

I've had an absolutely amazing weekend in London (aside from the horrific journey home), it was beyond my wildest dreams and I'm already desperate to go back there. I always knew that I wanted to live in London at some point but this past weekend has only confirmed that for me! I'm so tempted to pop down for a day of LFW as I have a couple of invites however it's the day before I move to Aberdeen and I don't think my bank account can survive another trip after the battering it received in Camden & Oxford Street. I'll be posting a little photo diary at some point this week as well as a haul which I may do in the form of a video as I bought SO much. My excuse is that I saved my birthday money and had a ton of gift vouchers... As well as the whole new season wardrobe/starting university wardrobe thing too.

I was unsure about this dress when I first tried it on after receiving it from the lovely Lily, however after wearing it all day around Camden; Brick Lane & Madame Tussaud's I've fallen in love. In fact, just as I was about to have this photo taken by my lovely boyfriend/designated outfit photographer for the weekend some kind stranger came up to me and told me she loved it - that's enough to put a smile on any girl's face! It's not my usual style but I really love it.

This week is going to be mostly spent catching up with friends before they move this weekend (RGU seems to be starting so much later than everywhere else!) before another weekend away; this time to Northumberland with my family. When I'm finally home I only have five days before the big move - scary stuff!


  1. I would definitely love to see a haul video, I think they're my favourites to watch! It sounds like you had loads of fun and that dress looks great! Just focus on the positives. haha xx


  2. Really pretty dress, looks great on you! Ahh I'm so jealous of your trip to London, Camden is SO cool and I've always wanted to go shopping on Oxford Street!

  6. I can confirm from my own student days that having loads of clothes is beneficial as the washing machines in halls are a bit rickety! Hahaha. And you have to share them with more people than at home (or in my halls you did). xxx
