I’m a girly girl so do love a pamper session but who doesn’t but realistically when do we have time to really pamper ourselves? For me I love on a Sunday night, lighting a candle, prepping my skin putting on a face mask, oils in the bath & having some down time. This is great for me to do once a week but leading up to Summer with a Wedding to prep for (not my own of course but I was a bridesmaid) & beach holidays, I made more of a conscious effort to buff, scrub & moisturise regularly & properly.
I’m not going to lie I love Birthday’s, whether it’s my own or someone else’s. It’s everything from deciding on the gift, I’m a stationer geek so even down to the card, wrapping it up. The day itself I want to know the plans, is it a celebratory Brunch, will we do something different maybe a theme park, the Zoo or getting dressed up & heading out for cocktails & dinner, have I got carried away? Sorry, but you can get the idea now can’t you. So this year when it came to my own birthday I hadn’t really made any plans, your shocked I know. My girlfriends & I had been out the week before for a big night out & that had totally distracted me however I was the lucky girl when my boyfriend surprised me & took me away for the weekend to Bath.
Being from Liverpool the Grand National (horse racing event) is pretty big in the city. I remember from a really young age my Mum & Dad going with a group of their closest friends, all dressed up & making a lovely day of it. As I got older & became more aware of what the event was I noticed that even if I wasn’t going or it was the National Day itself then that’s reason enough to get together with friends & family to enjoy it. I first went when I was 17 & was so excited to finally be going to the Races, looking back I must have looked like a baby but I felt so grown up. Part of going to the Races is picking your outfit & trust me it is no easy job to do, ladies really pull out all the stops.
When it comes to shopping it’s true I love to shop but I don’t like to waste time, how much easier is it when you don’t have to walk around aimlessly trying to find what you need.
So when you have everything all under one roof well it’s pretty perfect if you ask me so when Selfridges asked me along to their Manchester city centre store to explore I was so excited to see what they have under one roof. AA x
Wondering where I have been the past couple of weeks, well I was making plans for my new chapter, yes I got a new job!
It wasn’t easy but I am so happy & cannot wait to share with you all, it was a massive decision & one I wanted to share with you all.
It’s been a crazy few weeks hence the lack of posts (apologies all will be revealed over the next few weeks.)
So this weekend to escape the craziness that has been unfolding my boyfriend & I decided to head out for the afternoon.
With my bring pink trousers, tasselled earrings I was set to enjoy some cocktails.
When it comes to fashion there really are no rules, only those that you make for yourself.
T-shirts don’t work on me, I prefer a print to a block colour but now & then it’s refreshing to experiment with your look & bend the rules slightly.
You never know what new looks you may find & love!
