I've taken a whole week off blogging and it feels like the longest time ever! I wish I could say that I had stayed off my laptop for the full seven days and taken time off, but quite the opposite as I've had a couple of tight deadlines to meet before Easter holidays. I actually pulled an all-nighter on Wednesday, and felt like I was at uni again! I've still got a few things to tie up which I'm working on for the next couple of days but the good news is that I've got a backlog of both beauty and style posts lined up for at least the two weeks, so I'm really looking forward to getting back in my routine! I hardly schedule posts, so being ahead of schedule is a novelty feeling - being this organised doesn't happen that often!
Hope you're all having a good weekend! I love this time of year but as everyone who is self-employed knows, bank holiday doesn't really mean anything, I always end up working. We did take a quick trip to Newcastle last week, though - it's always so nice to go back. I hadn't been in to the new Primark there but had heard it is amazing so I popped in to have a look, and it's true! The best Primark I've been to, it reminds me of the one on Oxford Street except it's a lot tidier and it isn't as crowded. That's where I bought the white shirt and floral dress I'm wearing here. I really love the dress but wasn't keen on it being sleeveless, so I went around the shop to look for a t-shirt or blouse to layer it up with. I'm gutted, actually, that the first time I put the shirt on, I managed to get my bright pink lipstick on the fabric!
I have somehow ended up with quite a colourful collection of bags and my latest one is from Fiorelli via McArthurGlen. If anyone isn't familiar with them, McArthurGlen is a designer outlet offering a year-round saving up to 60%. With the new season in full swing, McArthurGlen are keen to showcase their most colourful range yet! The campaign Colour Me Happy sees a collection of limited edition accessories which have been designed especially for McArthurGlen outlets. Brands include Kurt Geiger, Lulu Guiness, Folli Follie, Links of London, Fiorelli, Asics and Osprey London. Visit their website to find your nearest store.
Do you like bright accessories? Usually, if it's a splurge, I'll pick a bog standard colour (black or brown) but it's nice to have a few colourful options to jazz up your outfits!
