It's my birthday this Sunday and I am off to celebrate in Dublin with two of my friends for a long weekend - so excited! I am going for a big night out on the 8th and wanted a pretty dress that wouldn't break the bank. I usually go towards a darker colour seeing as a November birthday doesn't exactly scream the height of summer but I like something with a pattern or texture to keep it interesting. I'm loving shift dresses with t shirt sleeves at the moment - I tend to go for short dresses to show off my legs so like to have a high neck to cover up the 'gals' and keep it balanced.

Since writing this post I have actually bought one of these dresses but I shall do an outfit post when I go so you can see which I chose! But which one is your favourite? I could always try one of the others!

Lifestyle: Holiday to Salou

So the weather has been been pretty rubbish this week so I thought I would share my sunny pictures from my week in Salou. I went over with my family on 31st August and spent the whole week reading, drinking cocktails on the beach and getting a super tan. We stayed in an apartment and had lots of spit roast chickens from the market with salad as well as eating at some nice local restaurants. My nights were spent either on the balcony or in a bar with mojitos and a simple pack of cards playing all sorts of drinking games. I ventured around the local shops to collect some goodies and hopped on a catamaran on the last day to soak up the last of the rays.

I love my city breaks and love all inclusive resorts but sometimes a cheap trip to Spain with the fam-a-lam is all you need to reset the batteries.

Lifestyle: Five Things I Loved in September.

1. Tartan.

I love a bit of tartan in the Autumn. So much so a few of my friends give me a gentle teasing now and again. Heck, even my nails are tartan.

2. Mojitos.

I tried a mojito years ago and it wasn't good so I just never went near them again. On holiday I needed a refreshing cocktail so tried another and I am now OBSESSED. Shame I have to stick to malibu or vodka to keep the syns down on Slimming World. There's always next summer.

3. Hannah Gale's Blog. 

She's a journalist for Metro and her posts just slay me. Always a great read and she has inspired this post. Find her here.

4. Planning Trips.

I am off to Dublin for my birthday at the start of November and have time off work over Christmas so Mia & I are going to jet off somewhere. We aren't sure where yet but it's exciting not knowing and dreaming of where we could go!

5. The Mindy Project.

I never watched it before now but I find it absolutely HILARIOUS. It's my go to Tuesday night programme on E4.
