All you need to do is say my name...

Well here we are again and it is Friday, blink and you will miss anther week rushing by, or so it seems lately! You know that I am like a broken record on the subject of how quickly time seems to pass, so I won’t bore you with it again! So, how are you all? I do hope that you have had a good week and that you are looking forward to the pleasures of the weekend. In my eyes, these include having a long lie-in, cooking breakfast (or better yet, finding some willing soul to bring you breakfast in bed!) going on walks (weather permitting) and maybe popping out for a couple of drinks with friends. It is getting quite funny, that when I walk in to my local bar, they automatically pour me a large glass of Pint Grigiot without me asking! I don't see the harm in the odd glass of wine, as long as you are an adult!  Also, do not even get me started on how much I love having a cheese board paired with a nice glass or two of red. Pinot Noir or Shiraz seems to pair very well with Vintage Cheddar. I go again digressing about food. So, before this blog turns in to vintners monthly I will move swiftly on. 

The thing is, I have been all organised for once and I actually have made concrete plans this weekend which I am really looking forward to. I am going to Yorkshire to visit my beautiful cousin and her children. I suspect there will be much talking, visiting fun places and eating delicious food. I have heard mention of homemade ice cream being for sale in the area, so that is definitely on my hit-list! I really cannot wait, because as I have said a lot recently, it is so nice to get away and have a change of scenery every once in a while.  So, this week I have been up to the usual mixture of work and play. Here are a few snippets from my week:

 I threw on this outfit which may look familiar as I have been living in it lately. I promise to mix it up a bit more soon, it is just that I am addicted to wearing this duster coat from Primark, which I also have in white. I love these skinny 'cold-knee' ripped jeans from there too. they were only £13. Bargain, so you just know that I had to get two pairs. 

Jeans, duster coat, shoes and top- all Primark
Bag-Forever 21 

Sorry for my moody expression as usual, it was very windy so I was trying to stop my coat from flapping and ruining the outfit pictures! 
I got these shoes in Primark this week. When I got to the checkout they had been reduced from £16 to £7. Don't you just love it when that happens? I was so thrilled. I love everything about them, the heel (not ridiculously high) the clunky style and the ankle straps *insert heart-eyes emoticon*
 I am seriously in love with these shoes! 
 Train essentials- Grazia and new shoes! 

 Going out for drinks with friends is always a pleasure. I will really miss sitting outside my favourite bar in the autumn and winter! 
 A foray in to Paperchase...a girl can never have too many sticky notes in my opinion!

 Paperchase has such a cute selection of reusable cups!

 I was in love with this kimono/jacket in Primark. I thought it was so cute, but was it too much like a dressing gown, what do you guys think? I did not buy it. *Update* I went in after lunch today and it was reduced from £14 to £7, so I bought it. Smoking jacket/ dressing gown chic here I come!

The kimono was reduced in price, I guess it was meant to be!

Inside the Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool One

 Yes, forgive me, for I have sinned. Filet-of-fish, fries, mozzarella sticks and a strawberry milkshake. We have all been there....right?! Or is it just me that craves junk food every now and then *most days* ;)

 The Bluecoat Gallery 

A cute sign in the courtyard.

If you are ever in Liverpool, I would thoroughly recommend a visit to The Bluecoat Gallery. It is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours, enjoying the art exhibitions and then having coffee and cake in the beautiful courtyard garden (weather permitting) or inside on rainy days. There is also a restaurant upstairs which does amazing food. Possibly one of the best things about the Bluecoat is that it is situated so close to Primark. I am not obsessed, honestly. Ok, I have a problem... Primark-addiction is a serious concern in my life! In all seriousness, they have some amazing exhibitions, workshops and lectures. The website describes The Bluecoat as not only a gallery but a 'creative hub' which seems like a fair assessment to me! 

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend. Do let me know what your plans are, remember, I love to read your comments and I follow back my followers :)

Until next time,
