Concrete jungle where dreams are made…

Okay, so for the last 18 months I have been saving like mad for my very special holiday to New York! As some of you may know, I turned 21 in 2013 and I always said I wanted to go for my birthday. Circumstances meant I didn’t quite get away in Summer but on 2nd January 2014 I set off on my travels with my lovely man! 

The trip started with disaster of course! I woke up at 5am, all excited, only to find out our flight had been cancelled due to a snow storm in New York! Cue lots of screaming, crying and moaning about how unfair it is! Of course I refused to take no for an answer. I headed to the airport anyway and managed to get booked on a later flight with no hassle at all! (Thanks, British Airways!)

My favourite photo from our trip! Central Park in the snow!

Anyway, the main point of this post is the shopping! OMG the shops are just sooooo good! Of course I was there during the January sales so everything was sooo cheap!

  1. NYPD Hoodie: I just had to have this. I love a baggy hoodie for lounging about in.
  2. I love NY t-shirt: No trip to NY would be complete without one of these obviously! 
  3. Cat print leggings (Forever 21): These are actually PJ’s but they are far too pretty to wear to bed so I use them as leggings! 
  4. PJ Set (Forever 21): I also wear the Meow top as a normal top just with a plain cami under it as its a bit see through! 
  5. Sparkle leggings (American Eagle): I love sparkles and these were so unusual. I’ve not seen anything like them in the UK!

  1. Both Checked Shirts (American Eagle): I couldn’t decide between the 2 colours and they were in the sale so I just got both! 
  2. Burgundy cable knit jumper (American Eagle)
  3. Popcorn knit cream jumper (Aeropostale): This will look so cute in spring with skinny jeans! 
  4. Beige Cable Knit Jumper (American Eagle)
  5. Pink Juicy Jumper (Juicy Couture): Only $25 in the sale! I’ve had this on loads and it looks really good! I love baby pink at the moment!

I really needed some new tops for uni so the above is a selection of what I picked up! The white cat one is my favourite! A bargain at $10 from Forever 21!

More hoodies! They are just so cheap in America and I wear them all the time at uni! 

So there we go, a selection of the items I picked up in New York! 

Hope you enjoyed this post! I certainly enjoyed the shopping for it! 

Forever 21 Haul

Today I went through to the lovely city of Glasgow. I went with intentions of getting a MacBook but for many reasons I’ve yet to purchase one. I did however make a stop in forever 21. We don’t have a forever 21 in Edinburgh so it’s a big deal for me to get to go there! Obviously as a big fan of New York, I love the shop!
When approaching the store I immediately noticed the sign in the window saying “extra 50% off sale items” which excited me greatly!
Anyway here is some photos of the cute items I picked up!
