purple rain

I wore this outfit last night for drinks in Camden with my friend Rachel. We went to 55 Bar for happy hour cocktails, 2 for £10, and they were so so good I would highly recommend it! The mojitos and frozen daiquiris are to die for. It's on the same street as Wagamama's, Yo Sushi and Byron, right by Camden Lock. I don't think a more ideal location exists! The night ended with shisha and chinese food, because it wouldn't be a night in Camden unless both of these things were involved! Where are your favourite places to drink and chill in London?

Just a quick one before I go to bed and try and squeeze in two hours sleep before I'm up at 1am to get a flight! Me and the girls are going on holiday tomorrow and I am literally SO excited. I can't wait to chill on the beach, top up my tan and rave all night long. 

I wore this outfit to a house party at my friends' last night. The dress is the perfect length, and I can always rely on these boots to see me through a long night out with minimal pain. I just can't seem to hack massive heels unless it's a proper 'do'. They look fab, but I love my feet too much to put them through that torture. Here's to forever wishing that trainers were acceptable at smart/casual occasions! 

See you when I'm back!

So as I mentioned in yesterday's post, I spent the last two and a bit weeks in Florida on holiday with my family and our friends. We had such an amazing time and managed to cram so many things into our time there. We did pretty much all of the stereotypical Orlando things and went on more roller coasters than I can count, and of course in between all of the craziness we squeezed in plenty of shopping! I had a list of things that I knew I wanted to buy out there, and had saved up A LOT beforehand to make sure that I could fund my shopaholic tendencies. Seriously though, when you're out there and you're being told that a Michael Kors purse is going to cost you the equivalent of £60, how can you resist? We were also really lucky in that the exchange rate was amazing when we went!

Pictured above are just a few of the main bits that I bought - there are also a few things that I didn't take photos of, like a pair of white Converse (only $45!!), a few more makeup/beauty bits from MAC and Sephora that I totally forgot about, and the multiple items of underwear that I bought in Victoria's Secret (once again, SO CHEAP). I am in no way a beauty blogger, but I would like to take this opportunity to say that the MAC Paint Pots in 'Bare Study' and 'Painterly', the Anastasia DipBrow and the Duo Eyelash Glue have all changed my life! As has the iPad - it's the handiest little thing ever, and I know it's going to be invaluable at uni! 

Have any of you been to the US recently? What bargains did you get? I'd love to hear!
