This is currently how long my hair has grown to, I am desperately due a cut but I am liking the length for the time being!

Concrete jungle where dreams are made of...
The countdown has well and truly began, it is 5 days until I board the plane and fly off to New York, with the hectic workload I
haven't really allowed myself to get too excited about it but as its quick approaching I am becoming very excited.

I leave on Thursday (2nd December) returning on the Sunday/Monday. I have been trying to organise and think about what I will be doing whilst I am out there.

Having never been to NY before I'm planning to do all the sightseeing including the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Central Park, Rockefella Centre, Empire State Building ohh and The Sex and The City Tour!!
I have been thinking about what to pack for my trip to NY, I am trying to pack as light as possible as I want to shop and bring as much back as possible. Bearing in mind I
haven't even started my Christmas shopping I plan to get most of it out there.

I have invested in a couple of essentials for the trip including a fur coat which I have been wanting for a long time now. I managed to find one in a new vintage shop that has just opened up down the road from me in Southampton. I have attached a picture of myself in it, its over sized so I have belted the coat for a more defined waist. However it can be worn loose as well, there is also a picture of it loose.

I will be wearing this coat on the plane to save my suitcase and also for warmth. I have also purchased some black high heels for the trip to NY this is because I haven't got any court shoes that would be suitable at uni for nights out in NY. I managed to find these beauties in TKMaxx, anyone that knows me will know I love TKMaxx and swear by it. I always manage to find different
items in there which your unlikely to see anyone else in.

Along with these items I plan to take a couple of dresses for nights out, one pair
of jeans, my jopper type black leggings, cream cords, several pairs of different tights, a couple of skirts, two blouses, one smart blazer, boots, brogues, going out handbag, jumpers, jewellery and anything else I can think of. This is just a rough list I'm certain more will get added when I actually think about it.

Until I go to NY I have to concentrate on my work and getting as much done as possible, I'm sure I will blog about my purchases and my adventures....

Much love

Winter's Here...

So as I am writing this I'm currently summing up today and the winter conditions we were forced to experience. Having to be in uni at 9 is hard enough let alone when it feels like you have monsoon rains beating against your window panes. So this morning was dull and dismal and made me want to jet set somewhere hot.

However now winter is here it now means my autumnish wardrobe can be used to its full advantage. I am hoping to invest in some warmer clothes when I venture to New York in under a month so I will do a full winter blog on what I'm wearing after I return. However there are a few items I am lusting over right now. These cord trousers are from and are only £20 the camel colour is very on trend for this season as well! They come in lots of other fabulous colours too!!

I am hoping I get to buy a new
party outfit for Christmas season as I've been looking at what Lipsy have to offer and they have a great range of differently styled dresses. I love this one shoulder Grecian dress, however it does set you back at £65...
Here is a Tiered Bandeau Jumpsuit, I would love to be able to wear this but I am slightly vertically challenged. But I can still lust over it just not wear it unless I suddenly have a growth spurt.

Until next time where I will be blogging about more things to lust over and it won't be such a delayed wait (uni has been pretty hectic so that is why the blogging has lapsed slightly!)...
Much love x x x
