Dress – Ebay
Lipstick – YSL Rouge Volupté in 27 Rose Paris
Nails – Ciate 

My first outfit post in a while as I’ve been majorly busy with work and being in Glasgow. Planning another trip back up there on Thursday but I’ve been organised and prepared some posts for before I leave. Absolutely so excited to go see Jordan and chill out and eat loads for a few days! 

I’m not sure how I will deal with the 4.5hour + train journey though! I’ve got my iPhone and Kindle at least. Can anyone recommend any books to get? I’m thinking Harlan Cobens new book Live Wire as he’s one of my favourite authors and his books are so gripping that I don’t notice that hours have passed. 
Any other favourites that have had you hooked? Very much appreciated!
I’m planning to take Jordan some Krispy Kremes (continuously fattening him up) but no doubt they’ll have been inhaled by myself by the time I leave Euston station. Possibly before.

I’ve been watching Geordie Shore’s newest series recently. I know I should be a lot more cultured than this, but I honestly find it so funny. Considering they’re on a reality TV programme, a few of them are surprisingly witty and always have me laughing so much. Am I losing it, or does anyone else find themselves glued to this? I find the people to be “real” also, rather than the likes of TOWIE and Made in Chelsea. Oh god, I really have lost it. Please, send help.

  • You look gorgeous! I need to stop seeing people with that amzing ‘Alexa’ crop because its tempting me to get it and I know it wont suit me 🙁
    I’d recommend the road by Cormac Mccarthy, I’m currently reading it and I’m absolutley gripped by it!

  • dress is awesome, really suits you! 🙂 bet you can’t wait to see Jordan again, wish I was going up with Mikey in March but can’t get the time off work 🙁 x

  • Cute dress 🙂

  • Totally with you on the Geordie Shore front – I hate TOWIE etc, but those guys are completely real and completely ridiculous. Loving the dress, by the way!

  • That dress is so so so sooooo gorgeous! And geordie shore is the funniest thing ever hahaha

  • You are hot! Maybe try Hunger Games for the kindle, it’s quite good and passes the hours. OOOh I really want to watch Geordie Shore but feel I may be disowned by the world.. I am tempted though to sidereel it! x

  • I’d definitely recommend the girl with the tattoo trilogy. Had me hooked straight away steig Larson is the author 🙂
    I know what you mean about Geordie Shore, definitely more real because the situations aren’t set up. Always feel stupid talking like I know them but can’t help it sometimes haha!

  • Lovely dress! So pretty 🙂
    Depends what kind of books you like but I recently read Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma and I couldn’t put it down. The subject is taboo but it is well worth a read. Stayed with me long after I’d put the book down. Amazing.

  • super cute dress. i love the pop of colour in your lipstick, perfect xxx

  • HAHA I watched my first ep of Geordie Shore the other week and was just surprised really. THeir lives are so strange but I agree some of them are quite real. The guys just crack me up though.

    Also I’m completely hooked to the A Song Of Ice And Fire series oh my god. And I hear The Hunger Games are pretty good! Book-wise The Road is a really interesting and quite sombre read!
