Life: January 2015 Loves

I realize how extremely summery this latest post of Loves is and it's only January! But I can dream, right?

  1. Topshop Dress, £34, As soon as I saw this I fell in love, whether or not it would be a flattering shape on me is a whole different matter but it's perfect for Summer
  2. Topshop Tote, £42, I feel like a simple black tote with strap versatility is a necessity and I don't currently own one, this Topshop handbag is ideal and would got with every day outfit
  3. Red Herring Watch, £40, This caught my eye when I was doing some online shopping, I love the rainbow jewels around the face I think they give it a twist that means it will go with everything!
  4. "If you have..." by Kelly Cutrone Book, £7.99, I've wanted to read her books for ages! Probably most famous for The Hills, Kelly Cutrone seems like such a bad ass and I'm sure that I could learn a lot from her and her determined ways
  5. Smashbox 'Frenchie' Lipliner, £15, I bought a Smashbox foundation recently and I really like it, I've also started to use lip liner for exaggeration and more definition but I would love one in this bubblegum pink shade to match some lipsticks I have
  6. Reebok Classics in Pink, £76, Are these not the prettiest trainers you have ever seen?! These seasonal trainers were once £40 but I can only find the for £65! Therefore I'm in two minds about actually buying them :/
  7. Disney Couture Necklace, £75, I love Disney Couture, my boyfriend bought me the most stunning bracelet from there a few years ago and the thought still devastates me. I totally don't deserve anything lovely from there but this is simply adorable.
  8. River Island "I'm in love..." T-Shirt, £18, I saw this quote on Tumblr a couple of months back and related to it. Now that it's on a T-Shirt at work I think it's a sign to invest...

Life: My Trip to Cincinnati

I headed over to Ohio with Mitch for a week at the end of November meaning we were there for Thanksgiving, it was an awesome time to be in the country,
His parents currently live in Cincinnati so we visited them for just over a week and it was brilliant!
We haven't been on a holiday together before but after five years together we decided it was time to pack up our stuff and go stateside. 
The flights were fine; decent food and some good movies! I love flying early in the morning, there is something exciting about it and our flight was at 6am so we were up and out of the house by 3am.
I've been to the West Coast before, I visited California when I was a teenager so it was nice to take a trip to the other side of the country and it is a completely different way of life!
It is the most Southern of he Northern states so it does have some interesting history and Mitch's parents planned lots for us to do; we went to an ice hockey game, ate out at IHOP and The Cheesecake Factory, trip to Carew Tower and we went to a book shop which had over 32 rooms full of different books! We also went to a church and it was amazing! I was so overwhelmed by the whole experience, it is completely different to over here in the UK, they are so lively and excited with everything.
I did a fair bit of shopping as it is ten times cheaper then anywhere I have visited before, I honestly couldn't wrap my head around it, the main things I picked up about America is; everybody loves the English accent ("Ya'll just got the pretty accent!") everything is soooo cheap and there is so much space!
Although being a vegetarian is a little trickier in America, Mitch's parents really got into the swing of things and made a completely vegetarian Thanksgiving meal! I tried sweet potato and marshmallow for the first time and it was DIVINE.
I loved my time over in America and I cannot wait to visit again and at some point, move to the West Coast with Mitch :D

Life: 2015

I have more than abandoned my blog in recent months, since I've been working more hours I have struggled to find the time! This has to change as we roll into 2015, I need to stop being so lazy and get some motivation.
The past year I stuck to some of my new years resolutions but this time around I'm not making any, I figured what will be, will be. I know there are things I want to do, I don't need to make a list or have to deal with pressure of sticking to New Years Resolutions!
 2014 was full of lots of excitement, events, drama and a few disasters, I hope 2015 is full of the good and not so much the bad.

What have you got planned for 2015? Anything exciting?
