How is it already the end of September? Its crazy that its October next week and that I’ve already been home for 2 weeks (insert sad face here) On the plus side it’s my 20th Birthday next week!!! Its cray to think that I’m going to be in my 20’s… But i’m so excited for it.
This weeks post is the first Friday Favourites since before I left for New York, so todays post includes some of my purchases from New York!!
Yes while I was in New York I picked up this beautiful YSL Handbag! I had been looking around at a few different designer bags over the months leading up to my trip, my first choice was a Prada Bag but then I spotted the Classic Kate Monogrammed bag and fell in love with it. I waited until I got to New York to see all the colours in person before I made my final decision, initially I opted for the Black with either a gold or silver chain strap but then I spotted the Dark Anthracite with the black chain and my decision was made.
Okay I’m not going to lie I went a bit crazy in the Madewell stores, I literally could of came home with every thing in the shop… I didn’t but I did however come home with tones of tops and a couple pairs of shoes. First off is The Barlow Mule, I love them so much and I’ve already wore them so much since I bought them, they are defiantly paying for themselves. The Second pair is The Billie Boot, I love how versatile these are they go with almost everything & I love how the heel isn’t too high which means they are so comfortable for walking around.
This was surprisingly a great book. The plot of the story sounded so good but I was worried it might end up being a bit slow and too heavy on the politics but I was so wrong. I really enjoyed it and it turned out to be such an easy read, definatly one I’d recommend for anyone going away on a trip!
Speaking of Books on the flight home I began reading The Girl on the Train, I was more than half way through by the time I landed in Aberdeen. It was so so good and that twist at the end I did not see that coming… I can’t wait to see the film!
These are some notebooks I picked up in New York, the Kate Spade ones I picked up from Barnes and Noble are super cute
especially the one with all the books! And the sweets I found in WHSmith here in Aberdeen, these are the only American that I’ll eat as I don’t know if it’s just me or is the chocolate in American just not as good as the chocolate here in the UK.
