Amen Ms. Waldorf, every stylish girls moral compass.

Doesn't this days feel fabulous?!? Everything feels so right with the world, it's just so magical!! 

Let's just say I will be spending a few minuites (hours) on ASOS today. Also the girls are dragging me out straight after work, and by that I mean I finish at 11.00 pm that day and will be heading straight for a cocktail.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Ambiente Tapas Leeds


Saturday night is date night and I was so looking forward to it. I haven't really seen my man in a while, but it's all been for a good reason, I got a promotion at work! Woop!! I am now in a junior managerial role within my company and this dinner was in celebration of that. The only thing is my schedule involves me working late and with my man's job he tends to work early's and weekend so it's been hard to spend time with him. So I was really looking forward for dinner and get all dressed up and fancy...
