Higher than a satellite...

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. This past week has been a crazily busy one for me. I went to Chester for a four day mini break with my Mum as you all know and then I went straight to Manchester when I got back from Chester for a photo shoot with Grafea bags! This was a very exciting blogger milestone for me as it was the first time I have been invited to collaborate with a big brand on a photo shoot. I will devote a post to the photo shoot, but first a quick recap on the trip to Chester. We had a fab time, and did a lot of shopping, sightseeing, eating and drinking! I went into Zara in Chester, not intending to buy anything...within ten minutes however, I had seen this perfect coat! It is a lovely grey/mink colour, it s made from thick snug wool and it has a beautiful draped collar and belt. I just could not resist it! Even though it was £109 so fairly expensive, I just know that it is such a classic investment piece for my wardrobe. I will wear it year after year and it will keep me warm. Can you tell I am excited about this coat?!

So, we had an amazing time in Chester and we soaked up as much as we could of this beautiful city within a few days. We visited the Dewa Roman Experience and the Roman Ampitheatre as well as Chester Cathedral. We also went for several lovely meals and had a few spa treatments which was fun!

  12. I can totally relate to your experience at Zara. Sometimes I always set my mind to "don't buy anything, just look, just look" but their clothes are so great, that I always end up buying something.

    Glad you had fun at your trip. The tudor houses look really cool, but I have yet to see one.
