So we've hit November eh? I honestly can't believe it's this time of year again but I'm not complaining as it means my trip to Glasgow is creeping even closer. My friend is getting married on 27th December so we've decided to stay for the full week and see out the New Year in the Scottish city. If anyone has any tips then I would love to hear them please! I already have a few places booked in to eat but it can't hurt to have some more ideas.

I had a little ASOS splurge last month and picked up this dress as I was in desperate need of some casual dresses. A very good decision! I love the soft flannel material and the slouchy fit which makes it perfect for wandering around a windy city. I wore this on my trip to Devon a few weeks ago. We stayed in Plymouth for a long weekend revisiting my best friends old university haunts. I didn't realise how much a needed a weekend away with my favourite girls and the sea air until we arrived at midnight on a Friday night. It's such a beautiful part of the world and exactly what I needed to switch off from that London life. I love it but sometimes you just crave fresh air and the sound of the sea!
