Not the most exciting outfit today but i've been having a coursework day. I have managed to complete a 1500 word essay, you have no idea how pleased I am! I will not be beaten by uni work ha! I'm having a bit of a break now and waiting for the boy to come round. I found this necklace and have fallen in love all over again. I think I brought it on my gap year when I was extremely flash with my cash haha! I was working full time and spend far too much money when in hindsight I should have saved! Ahhhh those were the days of endless shopping!

I'm not planning on doing anything tonight because my bank account is feeling extremely sorry for itself. My boyfriend did offer to pay for me to go to the cinema tonight, we both want to see The Fighter. Mmmmm Mark Whalberg! I said no because I feel bad taking his money when he very generously got me Coco Madamoiselle from his trip to Ireland. Its an early Valentines gift :) But I am so drained from uni work that I am desperate to go out so I might just take him up on his offer and pay him back when my ebay dosh comes through.

Has anyone got any exciting plans for Valentines Day?

Me and the boy don't usually celebrate it as our anniversary is on the 30th January, we have both decided that that is more important. I have however raided Tescos and brough their £15 finest meal deal. I brought chorizo and cheese chicken, green beans and new potatoes with chocolate pudding for afters. All washed down with a lovely bottle of rose cava. Perfect! Now we just have to agree on a film to watch, I think i'm going to push for something girly!
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend :)


  1. You were alot more successful then me on the work front! and it sounds like you're going to have a great night :)

  3. Love the outfit, your hair looks fab!!


  4. I neeeed a brown/tan cardigan so, so badly! For outfits like this, especially ;) I love your skirt, the buttons are adorable!

  5. Love your outfit, I've been looking for a cardigan like this for ages, can't believe its from Primark!
    Sounds like you'll have a lovely valentines day :D.

  6. You look nice Sophie, very cool for a day spent writing an essay :) I also have like a zero money (literally, haah!) so I think me and the boy will just bake together at home and then watch a film or just play some games together :) What did people do before there were films!? haha! :)

  7. Lovely outfit I really like the print on the skirt. Me and the girls are going to Nandos on V day haha and laughing at all the dates who got taken there for a not so romantic meal. For the last few years I never really celebrated V day with my boyfriend because a) our anniversary was Feb 24th and b) we didn't really see the point. Saying that it's always nice to be treated!!
