Crop Top - Topshop
Trousers - ASOS
Heels - Faith at Debenhams
Bag - Michael Kors

This is such a versatile crop top, that I just had to pick it up! It's from Topshop and they have it in other colours too, my best friend has the green which is really beautiful, and I believe there is also a dark red/ burgundy colour. I wore it with my favourite trousers, I picked to wear these quite tactically as I knew I would be eating LOTS of food, so a tight skirt would not be the best idea! And then I wore them with my stroppy sandal heels. ALSO please say you noticed the beautiful Michael Kors bag on my shoulder?!? This was a birthday gift from my boyfriend's family, it is beautiful! Finally my lipstick is Diva by MAC.

We decided to go to Dolce Vita, which is in Reading. The food was amazing, and would highly recommend going there! It is a little bit more pricey than some restaurants, but extremely worth it. Obviously I had 3 courses! First off was the asparagus with poached egg and a tomato based sauce, then chicken and mushroom risotto, and finally sticky toffee pudding! 

Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas period, I can't wait! 

Lots of love,

I AM NOW 21!!! 

These are some pictures of when I celebrated my birthday in Portsmouth on Thursday! I had such a good time! Every year I've got to celebrate my birthday with my best friend Emma as her birthday is the 15th! It's actually so nice to celebrate it together! We had some people over for pre-drinks, then we went out clubbing.

The skirt I wore is the same as the pink one I've posted about previously. I really like the shape/style of the skirt, as I think it is quite flattering for my body shape. The crop top I think is a must have to have in your wardrobe, as it will literally go with anything, but has a really nice shape to it. Finally my boots are my good ol' new look ones, which I wear daily (another great buy). 

I also celebrated my birthday with my family, and will post about it soon! 

Lots of love,

For our last day we decided to just have a mooch around the City, and didn't really have many particular plans. The pictures shown are of Trinity College (University in Dublin), and St. Stephen's Green. There was a Christmas market in the green, but to be perfectly honest it wasn't all that, so we just had a walk around instead. Someone I knew went to the zoo, which I wish I did as the pictures looked really good!

Overall, Dublin was really, really good. As I mentioned before if you are at Uni and not sure about going on a certain trip then I would recommend just to DO IT. 
I don't think I will rush back to Dublin, as I'm not sure if there is much new stuff to do, but the night life was really good, so for a weekend city break I would recommend. 

Hope you liked my Dublin Diaries.

So in the day on Saturday, myself and the girls decided to go visit the Guinness factory. Now, I don't like Guinness, but it was such a good day out. If you are visiting Dublin I would very much recommend spending time out to take a tour around. 

As well as learning about all what goes into making Guinness (which is more interesting than it sounds), there are also a couple of extra bits which make it more fun. You get to learn how to properly 'taste' guinness, you go into a really white room to heighten your senses, then they go through how you need to take a proper gulp to taste the guinness correctly! Also you get a free pint of guinness with your ticket, and you are able to pull your own pint. This was also really quite technical, but really fun, and as you can see I was really happy about getting a certificate!!

Lots of Love,

Necklace - Bought on Holiday

So last weekend I went to Dublin!! I went with the Geography social at Uni, and it was AMAZING!

The journey was so long, but after about 12 hours we finally arrived. We stayed at the International Youth Hostel, which was perfectly fine for what we wanted. The overall trip was about £110, which was really quite reasonable. I would highly recommend going on any university trips, I went with two of my best friends but spent all of my time with the gorgeous ladies in the last photograph. Trips are really good to meet new people and build more friendships! 

These are just a few pictures from our first night out! We went to a couple of bars, one in Temple Bar, which was really good! The drinks were pretty expensive, but I was already told that before I went so I was prepared. 

Take a look back in the next few days with bits I got up to whilst I was there!!

Pumps - Primark

So these trousers you may have recognised from my previous posts to wear for a dinner party, but they were so comfortable I decided to wear them in the day! I can't express how comfy these are, and they were only £18, which is an absolute bargain! From both this post, and the previous one it shows you can wear them both in the day and night! This kimono is a gorgeous monochrome pattern (the link shows the pattern better), and thought I would wear the bright pink pumps to brighten up the outfit!

I have decided that during December I am going to try and blog every other day! I just got back from Dublin, so you will see the first post of that in two days time, and during the month of December I am doing quite  a lot of interesting things including visiting Dublin, Berlin, IM 21!!!!, obviously Christmas (I am the biggest fan of Christmas ever!!), and a few other bits and bobs that I will be posting about!

Hope you enjoy all my December posts!
