They got nothing on you...

Hi everyone, how are you all? I confess that there is a tiny bit of laziness going on with this particular 'outfit of the day', because in a case of sheer wardrobe fatigue, I just threw on the same outfit as featured in my last post for a trip to the city.
 The only difference was that I also added this (frankly amaze-balls) chunky grey cardigan that I purchased recently from...drum-roll...Primark. I know, I bet you all just fainted with shock that I would go to Primark again...! Anyway, moving on from the shock of me going shopping there again, I was delighted because I had my eye on a cardigan like this ages ago in H&M and it had sold out, then I walked into Primark and there was this one. It was everything a cardigan should be in my view...long, chunky and slightly 'Mary-Kate Olsen' in terms of being way over-sized! 
So, one impressive sprint to the checkout later, the cardigan of perfection became mine. Expect to become bored of seeing it here very soon ;) 
Seriously, just allow me a moment to rave on about how perfect most of the clothes in Primark are at the moment! Enough? Ok ;) I really like layering an outfit too, and I think the different proportions of the cardigan with the kimono underneath looks kinda interesting. 


Shoes, cardigan and top: Primark
Kimono: (underneath cardigan) H&M
Skirt: H&M
Bag: Forever 21








Simple look of the day make-up wise. I use Rimmel wake me up foundation, (shade True Ivory) Maybelline the colossal volume cat eyes mascara (black) and Collection lipstick in shade 6, Bubblegum as the key elements of this look.

I have spoken before here about how important it is to do things which you enjoy in life. I really enjoy learning and perfecting my French, even though I have a BA Joint Hons Degree in French and German (University of Leeds represent!) and an MA in Advanced Language Studies with French (Liverpool John Moores University represent!) I still don't think that you ever stop learning a language, so every week I attend a two hour french group where we converse in French and do set tasks and homework.
My friend Claire teaches the group, so it is a pleasure to go along and it is also a great way to meet people. I find it really difficult to meet people, as I am fairly shy, so going to French group is really beneficial to me. I would strongly recommend joining a group like this when you want to meet new people. Not necessarily learning a language, but doing something that you enjoy, whether that is yoga, meditation, art or creative writing....you get the idea!
After the French group, we headed out to lunch at  The Green Lodge Hotel in Hoylake. The food was lovely, the portions were enormous and the prices were reasonable. As you all know by now, going out to lunch is my favourite thing ever and as usual, we had a good gossip and a sneaky glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc!


French Group is so much fun :) 

 We shared a platter as our starter. There was garlic bread, chicken, potato wedges, onion rings and mushrooms. It was delicious! 


 I had a Macaroni Cheese Burger. It was so delicious, creamy macaroni cheese encased in breadcrumbs. What is this sorcery?! One word, yum! 


 My friend had a cheeseburger with bacon. She said it was lovely :) 

A few other things I have been loving this week are featured below. I have been enjoying going on long walks alone with my headphones on (Skullcandy!) and a bit of Drake, Eminem, Lil' Wayne or Kanye West to keep me company!

 Where I like to walk :) 


The beautiful view of Hilbre Island, West Kirby, Wirral. I love the sea air and I also love to hear the curlews. There is a fallen tree which has been there for years, where I always sit and just look at the view in perfect solitude. It really helps me to have time alone just to think. 


 Remember the Gel-effect nail polish I raved on about from Primark? Well, this time I bought the green shade. It gives a lovely finish and it only costs £1!


Lunch in Starbucks...are you even surprised?! ;)

So, that's all for now lovely readers. What have you been up to this week and do you have any plans for the weekend?  Remember, I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers :)
Until next time, 

Camille xo
