My Valentine's Day | Part 2

After Valentine's Day Part 1 (read that post here) I look forward to nothing more than coming home to get into some comfy clothes, snuggle up and watch films and eat chocolate with Josh. So when New Look asked me what my ideal Valentine's Day was, I thought yep - pug pjs (and a new bit of underwear.) This lilac set is both beautiful and comfortable. It makes a refreshing change from the usual red and black combos we're bombarded with around Valentine's Day. I'm definitely going to be stocking up on these in every colour from New Look. It doesn't matter if you're in a relationship, single or seeing friends on the 14th, a new pair of pyjamas and a pretty lace bralet is just the best way to treat yourself.

My Valentine's Day | Part 1

Valentine's Day is not for everyone. But Valentine's Day has an extra special meaning for me; it's actually mine and Josh's anniversary too! We've been a couple since school and this year we are celebrating 10 whole years together. Ten! I'm not a big fan of going out and doing anything fancy on Valentine's Day. I prefer to stay at home and order in a takeaway (see Part 2 of My Valentine's Day) but what we may end up doing is going out to our local bar for cocktails. So when New Look asked what my ideal Valentine's Day outfit would look like, I opted for something pretty but casual. I love this embroidered skirt. I'm happy to see embroidery everywhere now. I'll be choosing my pieces wisely but this skirt is a firm favourite. Worn with tights and boots it's easy to go from day to night...

Leaving Education & Pretending to Adult

Here's a scary subject to broach, no more education. Schools out, college is complete and university is finito. What now? For someone who enjoys learning, working on projects and striving to get good marks, the idea of finishing education and leaving it all behind was a bit bewildering. Lunchbox in hand, I marched off to school at the age of 4. And after primary came high school, followed by sixth form college (and then there was that weird bump in the road when I had a surprise gap year) to finally reaching university and completing a three year undergrad degree. I did it! I did it and it all went by so quickly. And then I was thrown out into the big wide world to fend for myself and earn proper money and pay bills.
