Victoria Dock

HAPPY (fairly late) NEW YEAR! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holidays and that 2016 is going well for you so far. As always, I'm feeling a quite bad about not keeping my blog updated as much as I should. Over Christmas, I had so many ideas and plans for posts, but I didn't seem to get the pictures I wanted. I was having such a lovely time with family and friends that I totally forgot about blogging. In the words of Edie from Ab-Fab, I was just ' Too busy doing it, Darling!'. I promise I will try harder next year xoxox 

That said, I (and in this case I mean my usual photographer, Ellie) managed to shoot one set of very quick photos over the holidays. I was going for a cosy coffee and cake meet at Thieving Harry's with my family and we arrived slightly early, so we decided to shoot on Queen Victoria's dock, a stones throw from the said cosy lunch location. Living away from home, I never normally get a to hang around here. I'm usually so busy running around in town or visiting people or taking trips outside of Hull, that I forget to appreciate Hull itself, so it was a really lovely opportunity to see somewhere a little different.

I have a massive obsession with all things leopard print, so as you can imagine I am in LOVE with my new top. I was admiring it in Topshop whilst in Amsterdam and, without me knowing, my Mum snuck off and bought it for me as a Christmas present. It is now nicknamed the Marlene top after we saw the EXACT SAME ONE being worn by a barmaid on an episode of Only Fools and Horses, but for some reason that just makes me love it more.

My love of Vivienne Westwood has also grown more than I ever thought was possible over the Holidays. I got the Frilly Snake Heart Bag for Christmas from my parents after years of admiring the model, and I still cannot believe I've finally got it! It might just be my favourite piece in my wardrobe. I also got the necklace I'm wearing from my parents and I absolutely adore it. It goes so perfectly with everything I wear! I'm lucky enough to have built quite the collection of V.W now, but I managed to visit their Leeds store just after Christmas and found myself in my own personal heaven yet again. They had a big sale on so I may have bought myself a couple of very lovely treats that I can't wait to show you soon! I also wore my big H&M coat, a Boohoo skater skirt and H&M boots.

Ive been wanting to visit Thieving Harry's for ages and I wasn't disappointed. I'm quite sad I didn't take my camera with me to get more/better pictures, as the interior is amazing, all mismatched vintage furniture and fairy lights. The cakes were also to die for!

I should be back with a post on my trip to Amsterdam soon and an exciting collaboration too. I hope you enjoyed this post and have a lovely week or so,
