H&M jacket
monki vest
monki necklace

This is what I wore to travel up to manchester and go for a quick dinner at Barburrito. I do love a good taco or three. I also had salsa which was not pictured but I can vouch for it's deliciousness. In Manchester we stayed at The Light Apartments in a duplex suite (penthouse!) It was absolutely amazing. Basically picture your dream apartment and that was it. Huge, white and loads of light. If I had unlimited budget I'd want a flat exactly like this one. Sigh. ONE DAY EH GUYS. I was sitting there imagining all the amazing things I could film if I had such epic space and lighting. I should have really taken some photos of the place but I was to preoccupied by the fact there was a bath in the bedroom. Fancy.

For my travelling outfit I wanted something easy and monochrome. Although to be honest that's my usual style choices. Topshop Jamie Jeans - Absolutely love them - Literally my favourite jeans out there. I wore a ugly pair of ill-fitting jeans the other day and I've never felt so dumpy and chubby. Finding good jeans is one of the hardest fashion related tasks!

  1. I love your nails! I agree, it's hard to find a perfectly fitting pair of jeans but I've recently bought a rag&bone pair and they are amazing, although I do need to take them to get cut.

  2. Wow I love the nails - are they stick on or have you done the design yourself? I love the mixture of the black matt with the shiny and the white!!

  22. I have the same trouble with jeans, I think that's why I stick to leggings and long tops most of the time. I love your t-shirt, the eye print is so cool :).
