My 16th Birthday

 So yesterday was my 16th birthday and I spent it with my family. Before I get started I want to thank all my friends, family and followers who wished me happy birthday and were there to celebrate it with me, I love you all.

I spent most part of my birthday in York where we went for brunch at Slug & Lettuce which I visited last weekend in Manchester for lunch and it was really nice so we decided to try it for brunch and we weren't disappointed. We went for brunch and I got eggs Benedict and we shared the pancakes, it was so good and I would recommend visiting for brunch if your in York or any city which has a Slug & lettuce. 

The outfit I wore on my birthday was this dress from Topshop which I brought a couple of weeks ago and kept it special for my birthday. To kept it quite casual I went with a pair of black Converse and my Louis Vuitton Alma BB. 

 My Instagram and Snapchat was filled with pictures of me with my balloons ( as below), I'd be lying if I said I didn't just get these for the pictures. I've posted a few Boomerang on my Instagram so make sure we go watch them.

After spending most of the day in York shopping I spent the evening with my family and we went for my birthday dinner at my favourite restaurant. I stayed with the same outfit but changed the Converse for these black heels from New Look.

Now I couldn't not share a picture of these beautiful flowers that my Grandparents got me, if in doubt of what to get me as a gift buy me flowers and I'll love you forever.

 No surprises here as to what I ate whilst out for dinner, I went with the usual cheese burger and chips just to kept it safe. I got a mojitio ( of course) and overall it was a lovely meal with fantastic company.
Thank you to everyone who made my birthday special I love you all very much.

My Birthday trip To Manchester

Hello and welcome back to my blog, today I'm writing about my trip to Manchester to celebrate my 16th birthday which is this Thursday ( June 22nd). I thought you'd like to see a collection of pictures from the weekend. 

So this Saturday I spent the day shopping and eating out at some of my favourite spots in the city. Scroll down to see all the picture from my weekend. 

Saturday 17th June 

So the morning started at 7am in the car driving to Manchester, once we arrived and checked into our hotel I did as I always do: got an outfit picture in a car park because I am a blogger of course. With it being the hottest day of the year I paired this lace top with my denim skirt which are both from New Look and I paired this with my brown New Look sandals.

 By mid day we came to the conclusion that it was way too hot to do any more shopping so we headed to the Alchemist bar, which if you don't already know it is one of my favourite spots in the city. I went with the classic mojitio and posed for a picture along the way.

For a late lunch we headed to the Slug&Lettuce  for another cocktail and a sharing platter which tasted so good and it won on presentation which is always key if your like me, who is more bothered about if the food will make a good Instagram post than if it will taste good. By this platter ticked all the boxes and gave us enjoy to do more shopping.

Sunday 18th June 

After a busy shopping day yesterday we headed to do more of course but this time we went to the Trafford Centre just for a quick look around as it was on the way home. For my outfit I kept it simple because I was spending about three houses in a car after shopping and it was another really hot day. This t-shirt dress from New Look which I tucked into my denim skirt and paired it with my Converse as my feet were suffering from all that walking from the previous day. 

Thank you for reading and I hope to see you very soon.

Summer Essentials: Denim Skirt

Practical, stylish and all round amazing. What more can I say about this outfit, it's perfect for summer if your brunching, shopping or city hopping whatever your doing this summer your handy denim skirt will be your passport to the perfect summer outfit. So where can you buy the perfect denim skirt? A question I bet your all asking as you scroll through these pictures, your answer is the highstreet. The perfect skirt won't break the bank and will see you through the summer days I assure you. Don't believe me? Take a trip to your favourite store and pick one up. It's something so simple but will go with everything in your summer wardrobe.

So this week in the Uk it officially felt like summer as we seen temperatures as high as 27 degrees which is amazing of course but not when your sat in your school hall with 200 plus people all sitting your exams, a reality for me as I'm in the middle of my GCSE's, probably the most stressful time EVER! However, because the weather has been amazing I spent Saturday with my family where we went for a cute village walk and out for lunch ( you might of seen it over on my Snapchat) but the highlight of the day was finally being able to wear my summer clothes and there's nothing for exciting than that.

So what does this outfit include? A white Ralph Lauren top which I tucked in to this New Look denim skirt which you will of seen in a post a few weeks ago. For shoes I wore my not so white Converse which have definitely seen better days but nevertheless they are still my favourite pair of shoes because they are just so comfy and practical for any occasion.

 Happy Friday internet, I hope your all doing well. Today I'm sharing with you my recent outfit from yesterday evening as I dined out with my family ( shoutout to you) I posted a few pictures on Instagram with the intention of writing a quick post for you to share the details to this look.

I'm going to try my hardest to post weekly once my GCSE exams start this coming Monday but posts might not be as frequent as they have been. Good luck to everyone sitting their exams this coming month, don't stress and just try your best.

Anyway the main reason you have clicked on this is to read about my outfit so here is the details for this casual look. Now this denim jacket was featured in my last outfit post but this time worn in a different way. On top I'm wearing this white lace top from New Look as well as the jacket also from New Look which makes the outfit quite casual but paired with my favourite black Topshop Joni jeans and New Look loafers adds a more smart vibe to a simple outfit. Recently, I've been wearing outfits like this recently as this jacket goes with pretty much everything in my wardrobe therefore its a must have for me.
