hello! as you may or may not know, i went on a little road trip to see one of my best friends in manchester last saturday. they decided they wanted breakfast so i had to get up at an ungodly hour, but at least i got french toast with strawberries, blueberries and honey out of it when we got there. on the way i had to have a tasty, despite being sickeningly overpriced, costa toastie and we had a nandos later on. healthy eating was not on the cards that day…

we went to the usual places but, naturally, i was more excited about zara than anything else. my friend very kindly bought me the tartan shirt and black jeans as a belated birthday present, which was very lovely of her. i hadn’t seen the leopard shirt in my local store or online, so that had to come home with me too. the topshop sale was quite overwhelming and oh so busy, but i managed to score those awesome boots for a delightful £45 instead of their £110 rrp. topshop’s beatnik lipstick also found its way into my shopping bag, as it’s the perfect dusty pink aka. my version of a nude lip. can’t be doing the dead foundation look now can we?

all in all, i had a great day and i need to persuade my boyfriend to move to manchester as it’s a city that i really love. not as mental and terrifying as london but a lot bigger than newcastle. perfect.
