Black leather stachel: Charity shop
Oversize faux pearl necklace: Primark

Excuse the red eye in the second photo, my mum refused to take any more pictures because she has to watch heartbeat in the telly. Never mind that the episode is 10 years old and she has seen it a million times before!

I spent the last of my uniform allowance at work today and this is one of the two dresses that I brought. Only £28 normally, what a bargain! I'm wearing it out before I wear it to work, always nice to go out for the evening with something new on! I thought i'd jazz it up a bit with a red cardigan, stop it from looking too dull. I'm using my trusty vintage stachel again tonight, honestly the best £6 I have ever spent I use it all the time!

Off out to Pizza Expresss tonight for dinner. My boyfriend is very kindly treating me as he won £30 on the Grand National. I think I have a keeper there! Although I have made sure I have printed off the 2 courses for £10 discount off vouchercodes, nothing I like more than a bargain! It will be such a nice break from all my Uni work I seem to be doing lately athough I am feeling a little guilty about not doing any tonight. Handed in my first draft of my dissertation today so hopefully I won't have too much to change come Wednesday and my tutor will tell me i'm on the right track!

Hope everyone has a lovely evening :)
