Yes that is my beloved Mulberry you can see. I finally saved up enough money to buy my dream bag and it's safe to say i'm completely in love. I've wanted this bag since I was 15 and it feels amazing that I can finally say I own one. I've already set up another money tin to start saving for yet another bag! I brought this dress with the last of my Next discount and it's become a staple in my wardrobe. It's a great length for work and very comfortable for everyday wear.

I'm slightly suffering today from tiredness after rolling in at 5am this morning. Althought we didn't actually drift off to sleep until about 5.45 thanks to late night drunken talks. My friend moved to North London for Uni a few years ago and we decided to take advantage of her gaff and plan a girls night out in Camden. I had the best time dancing like an idiot and literally didn't stop laughing all night. I've rustled up a carrot cake to help make me feel a bit better. I think tonight might be an early night...
