I'm always a little intimidated by how well dressed these fabulous girls are, and so instead of blowing my budget on something I can't really afford I decided to make my dress. I made a copy of this dress and I'm really damn proud of myself. Anyway one with the amazingness...

I thought I'd do a round up of my week.
-We're in week three right now at uni and so things have just started to heat up in terms of actually needing to do things. I swear I could not do it were it not for colourful stationery. That might be a bit materialistic but it works. I have on colour for each of my courses and I really love it that by the end of my degree I'll have a rainbow for my bookcase.
-Last year I visited Fortnum and Mason for the first time and oh my goodness I am addicted to their fruit tea. The majority of the time out house are addicted to Lidl Mint tea (actually the best thing ever!) but when things need a little bit of shake up you can't beat a bit of F&T.
-Talking of cheap products which are totally amazing, have you tried the Primark scents lately? They're really nice and fresh.
-I've switched to a more natural hair colour lately so I'm rocking a little bit more of a natural red. Now that it's not so bright red I've been rocking a lot more red. Lipstick, dresses and glasses. I can't get enough of the colour now I don't clash so much.
-Dark chocolate is a life saver right now. I'm trying to eat healthier and cut down on unhealthy snacks but I think I would just collapse if I didn't have treats every now and then.
-It is cooooooold in Edinburgh right now! We have snow and frost and wind so walking to uni had been horrific. These gloves from Tiger have been such a life saver. They are touch gloves so I can use my iphone with them, most touch gloves are really boring colours but Tiger does some really sweet patterns.
-I finished the dark tower series a week or so ago and I'm still reeling! I spent about 6 months reading all 7 books and I just can't get over the fact there's no more to read. I feel totally lost! What do you do when you finish a series? (Also if you haven't read it, you totally should. It's a change-your-life series.)

For my 21st George got me a trip to Vienna. Soooo exciting! We went in late December so we got to visit all the Christmas markets, go and see a ballet and drink all the yummy mulled wine. I also discovered my new favourite snack; it's called langos and it's essentially fried garlic bread- what's not to love?!? On top of that we got to spend our anniversary in the beautiful city. It was amazing.
If you have a chance to visit Vienna in the winter, do it! It's the perfect Christmas city.
