Just wanted to post a few snaps from the flight on Wednesday evening. We chased the sunset for about 5 hours and these photos really don't do the beauty justice. It was just just the perfect view to think about a lot of stuff and just appreciate everything, it was probably the quickest 7 hours of my life. I'll be posting more photos next week but head on over to my Instagram as i'm updating daily!

The Vintage Fashion Journal - £12.95*

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate the sheer beauty of this journal?  Ok, are we done? I mean seriously, just look at it. Absolute perfection. I love collecting journals like this, even if it does take me a while to actually doodle inside them, but they're always nice to keep and look back on a few years down the line. I fell in love with this fashion journal as soon as i saw it, the illustrations are just so beautiful and delicate. I can't wait to use this whilst i'm in New York as a diary to look back on a magical few days!

BAG - eBay £18.99

Probably nothing you've not seen before in a hand luggage post but i thought i'd do mine anyway. I've got the necessitates such as my purse, iphone, ipad and camera but also a little journal which I've been using over the past few weeks. I find airports to be really interesting and inspiring places and as i'll have plenty of time to kill i plan on putting together some blog posts and being productive. I have a whole post dedicated to the journal going up tomorrow so come back if you're interested in seeing it in it's beauty. 

I can easily go without wearing make up, it honestly doesn't bother me and the thought of travelling for a loooonggg time and worrying about how it's looking is something i'd rather not be doing. But having said that, i want to use this time to give my skin some much needed TLC so I've included my drink up mask (which i blogged about last week) an eye cream and then a lip balm. I've also included concealer for my tired eyes once i land, a bit of mascara and then a nude lip gloss. I think it's a good balance and i think it'll serve me well!

Dungarees: Cherrycherry* | Top: H&M | Shoes: eBay

On my drive to work last week i first heard Taylor Swift - 22 and the lyrics just really stuck with me, to the point where i literally cannot stop listening to it. Even though i'm not 22, i'm 23 and 3 weeks tomorrow i'll be 24, i just think the song really sums up my life at the moment and the whole attitude i have towards a lot of things. I love the message in the song, the whole care free 'just dance' and forget about everything else thing she's got going on is just such a positive way to be. So, that probably explains this outfit and how for just a little while it's completely fine to be a bit silly and just totally let your hair down and remember age is just a number. 

You might not be able to tell but I've had my hair chopped a bit, 2 inches (!!!) to be exact so for me it actually feels really short even though i know it's not #girlproblems. I think it looks a lot thicker and healthier so i'm going to try and keep up with it, oh who am i kidding?! I'm thinking of adding a bit more ombre and maybe going a bit lighter but considering it's taken me months to get my hair cut i can't see it happening anytime soon. 

For those who read my last post, you'll know that exciting things were in the pipeline. Those things weren't actually meant to happen for a few months but sometimes you just have to take a chance and hope it pays off. Next week myself and two girl friends will be moving in to this cottage in our local town and we're all pretty freakin' excited about it. It all happened so fast and i can't believe this time next week we'll all be in our new bachelorette crib, a lot of memories are going to be made there and i can see it being a really fun few months. I'll certainly do a tour of the place as it's massive and can you believe it my room has fitted wardrobes? Oh my god. Bloggers dream coming true right there! 

This time next tomorrow i'll be on my way down to London to fly to New York tomorrow afternoon. It only feels like last week we were booking it and now the day is nearly here. Last time i went snow nearly stopped me from getting there and i'm having a slight panic over the fact it's snowing there at the moment, so until i'm on that plane i still don't think it's happening. I've not even started packing yet, opps! I'm going to try and blog whilst i'm out there and schedule a few posts but bare with me for a few days, things might be a bit hetic! Although, because i love you guys i'm going to still(hopefully!) get an eBay post up for you on Sunday. Now that's dedication.

Oh and just before i go, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your amazingly beautiful kind words on my weight loss post. I didn't think it would have quite the reaction it had but you've seriously made me so happy, so thank you. I hope you're all happy and smiling, have a fabulous week whatever you're up to!

Just a heads up, it's the last few hours to enter my Vivienne Westwood purse giveaway
