❝It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.❞

Isn't it beeeeautiful? Carry on sized luggage - Penneys, €24

  So, today I'm off on a girly weekend to Bath... Sorry, sophisticated lady weekend :P My friend Julie and I are heading off to Bath, the home of Jane Austin (♥), to... well I'm not sure really. We are going to walk around, take pictures with our stupidly large cameras and have afternoon tea (well I will, Julie says she will just have a scone.. her aversion to hot drinks baffles me). I was going to show you what I packed but the logistics of laying it all out on my bed plus having to clean my room for the picture put me off the idea. So instead I decieded to list them, and show you a picture of my gorgeous new suitcase :D (psst, that's it up there ⇑).

 I have a thing about shoes so I'm bringing 3 pairs (flats, boots, heeled boots)... ridiculous I know but I'm a 'just in case' kind of girl. After that though, the packing is minimal!

1 bandau skirt
1 dress
1 pair of jeans
3 leotards (2 strappy, handy for under things, 
and one long sleeved)
1 blouse
1 tshirt
1 light cropped jumper
1 large jumper

As I mentioned in my packing light post, a colour theme always works when trying to pack a carry on case! So I have kept everything black, cream and wine coloured.

In terms of makeup I'm just bringing foundation, powder, mascara, 1 lipstick and my Bobbi Brown travel brush set. :)

I have managed to squeeze a fairly large handbag into the suitcase as well, take that Ryanair!

A Bit of Aix With An OOTD Thrown In..

Yesterday we headed into town for a walk around, icecream and some shopping (when I say some shopping I really just mean Sephora...). The town is beautiful, it's a labarynth of small winding streets and yet it is impossible to get lost... The icecream is not too bad either!

Here is a quick outfit of the day picture for you :) The tshirt is from the River Island summer sale for 3 euro, and the skirt is my sister's from Bershka... It turned out to be a tad windy for a skirt but luckily I was wearing nice knickers ;) Right, I'm off for a mid day nap in the sun! A tout a l'heure :D

La Vie En Rose

Bonjour mes amis!! Apologies for the ridiculously long absence but blogging while living in work was just impractical, and then I flew straight to France! I'm in France at the moment, so far I'm only a teensy bit burnt ;) Unfortunately my tan has yet to show itself. Sneaky sneaky tan. Other than that, my holiday is going swimmingly :D I'm in the south of France with my friends, staying in a gorgeous house outside of Aix en Provence. Anyway, instead of boring you with the details I'll just show you how I've been filling my days...

Oh, and nights... :D
