What a feeling!

I am venturing into the West End to see Flashdance tonight. Very exciting, I love the film! I brought it as a birthday present for both my friends. I was a bad friend as it was my friends birthday back in October but I just never got round to buying them. I had a bit of a panic when I realised it ended this month so I was so lucky to get tickets! But due to unfortunate circumstances she could not make it so I ended up going with my other friend and my mum! Nice girlie night out.

This is what i'm wearing:

Dress: Primark
Shoes: Primark
Tights: Primark
Coat: Next
Watch: Toywatch
Ring: Primark
Bag: Charity Shop
Nail Varnish: Totally Teal No7

I think this is my favourite dress. I have worn to death and when my mum came in from work she asked why im pulling this dress out again haha! It was only £15 and everyone always comments on it when I wear it. They never believe it from Primark! I love the vibrant colours and the fact that it can be transfered over the seasons. Tights in the winter and bare legs in the summer. Bit of a Primark outfit today!

Its my birthday on Sunday. Im turning 22 and to be honest not really looking forward to getting older. Id like to stay at 21! Im getting worried that my life is going past far too quickly and i'm not going to fit everything in that I want too. Im going out the night before to Shoreditch as it was my friends birthday on 11th. But i'm not going out for my actual birthday until the 29th January. Im hopefully going to Guilty Pleasures club night at Koko, Camden. Anyone been before? Also if anyone could reconmend any places in Shoreditch, that would be great too!

As my birthday present my mum is taking me to afternoon tea at the Ritz next Monday. You have no idea how excited I am about this! I plan to eat my weight in scones and then some. Im having a mare about what to wear, I keep changing my mind! It will be the poshest place I have ever been. I hope we are allowed to take lots of pictures!


  1. That's such a pretty dress! I really need to go back to Primark, it's so annoying as the closest one to me is Margate and it's tiny! Hope you have a good time at Flashdance and oo, so jealous of tea at the Ritz, I've always wanted to do that! xx

  2. I love Flashdance! So jealous. That nail polish is incredible too x

  3. Oooh I LOVE that dress, never saw it in Primark, gutted! I hope your birthday is good, I'm jealous of you going to Koko, I want to go out dancing! 22 was a good year for me, maybe it will be for you. I hope so. :)
