My Mulberry Purchase!

Last week I had a little trip to Bicester Village (an amazing outlet village) with my friend Becca. We had both just handed in our final major project at Uni so we were in the mood to celebrate. I had originally intended to possibly buy a handbag from Kate Spade or Marc Jacobs but then I went into Mulberry! 
I spotted three purses, all the same style but different colours - Black, Red and Pink. I ended up being torn between the Black and Pink one as they were different leathers. The pink one was a lovely colour and the leather was slightly more durable but Black is just classic. As you can see, I went for the black.
I really love the style and think the bow is super cute. I actually featured this purse back in 2013 on a wishlist here! There is many pockets inside for cards and a zipped section as well as a zip on the back. There was a £100 off this so I thought it was really good even if it's a couple of season's old! I've took lot's of photo's to show how it came wrapped and how it looks. 
 Bow Continental Wallet - £195 
The staff at the Mulberry store were also amazing and really helped me. I also think the purse is available at the Cheshire Oaks outlet if anyone's interested. I also picked up a couple of other items, but they'll pop up in some upcoming posts. I still can't believe I bought a Mulberry purse! It's safe to say I am a shopaholic.

Bitter Lollipop

Today's post is all about the brand Bitter Lollipop. They approached me a couple of weeks ago about trying a dress out. Bitter Lollipop specialise in dresses for busty girls who are bra size C and above. I think it's a great unique idea as it's so annoying when certain styles just don't suit you! I chose this lovely floral dress as I thought it would be great for Spring!
Jacket - Primark
Bag - Primark
Necklace - Tiffany
I'm also wearing Candy Yum Yum Lipstick by MAC - I managed to pick it up in the Designer Outlet for only £10! 
I'm currently having a chilled Saturday afternoon watching Once Upon a Time, I am hooked on this show!

Edinburgh Adventure

Last week, my family and I took a little trip on the train up to Edinburgh for two days. We were celebrating my Mum's Birthday so she was in charge of the itinerary. The day was started with a super early 6am start but a lovely train journey up the north east coast. We arrived in Edinburgh around 11am and checked into the Old Waverly hotel which is situated on Princess Street (one of the main streets, especially for shopping).
The hotel was lovely and a great location. My Mum got upgraded to a junior suite which unfortunately was next to a building site but my room was lovely. I could even see the castle. The hotel offered left luggage services which we took advantage of before heading out.
The first place we went to was The Real Mary King's Close on the Royal Mile - I'd been here previously as a child and hated it. I actually cried the whole way through, this time I was brave. There actually was nothing scary about it and the attraction takes you underground into the old streets of Edinburgh. It is interesting to see the old streets and learn some history behind the city. Unfortunately I don't have any photo's as they were not allowed. 
It was then time for lunch and we went to the Greyfriars Bobby pub which is by the little monument. Greyfriars Bobby is a famous dog and worth the Google to find out the lovely backstory. 
We also passed The Elephant House which is where JK Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book. As a big Potter fan, I've wanted to visit this place for a long time. 
Walking up the Royal Mile, we popped in a couple of shops and everywhere is just so pretty! At the top of the Royal Mile is the castle. We didn't go inside but we took advantage of the beatiful views.
The rest of the afternoon was spent looking round the shops on Princess Street and surrounding streets. I may have made a purchase in Space:NK - I couldn't resist. A little travel tip if you ever visit Scotland but every shop is legally required to charge 5p for carrier bags - I did not know this!
After getting dolled up we went to Hard Rock Cafe for food. As it was my Mum's birthday she chose the place and the staff couldn't have being any nicer - They presented her with a Birthday Badge and also a Birthday dessert. 
The food was pretty insane as Alex and I ordered started as our main courses but as you can see in the photo's there's enough food for the whole restaurant! Alex's Nachos were insane and of course defeated him. The rest of my family ordered burgers which all looked really good. 
After Hard Rock we popped into All Bar One for some amazing cocktails. Me and Mum had done a cocktail masterclass in the All Bar One in York and couldn't resist going back for me. I love that you can get teapots for your cocktails to share. After a few more drinks in some lovely little Scottish pubs we headed off to bed. 

Stay tuned for part two of my Edinburgh Adventure where I meet some furry friends!

Have you been to Edinburgh? What did you think? Have you visited any of these places?

Jewel Street & PB London

I was recently contacted by Jewel Street to do a review on a piece of jewellery from their marketplace. Jewel Street sells jewellery from over 250 different designers worldwide, its the biggest jewellery marketplace in the world! 
I ended up choosing some bangles from a designer called PB London. The set of two bangles were gold with Amethyst gems on, I thought these would go perfect with stacking them with my watch. They arrived lovely packaged wrapped in tissue paper and in a small little pouch which was such a pretty touch. 

There's some lovely items on Jewel Street, great for treating yourself or others as the prices range from £20 upwards. I know my grandma would love this website.
