OK, this has probably been the most exciting but ridiculously busy time of my life. Last week I was ridiculously excited (so ridiculous, I used the word ridiculously twice) when I was sat at my desk at work and received an email from Forever21 asking me to visit their London store for a shopping spree and lunch to celebrate the arrival of Forever21 in Manchester. The Manchester store opens this Saturday (21st) and I am so excited I could squeal.... in fact I did. I travelled down to London with some other lovely Manchester bloggers and was given £200 to spend in store... (I know right, I nearly died) All in all.... not many photos were taken due to me running round the store looking like an excited sweaty mess. it was so lovely to meet other Manchester bloggers and I also got to catch up with my lovely friend Emma of Kisses and Crossstitches  it was pretty much the best day ever and obviously you can expect to see me wearing ALOT of Forever21 gems in the next few posts! I then went on to launch a new menswear brand that Ive been working on for the company that I work for AND THEN came home to realise that I have been nominated for the Fashion Newcomer Award in the Cosmo Blog Awards! Thank you SO much to everyone who nominated me, I appreciate it more than you can ever know. you can now also vote for me to win HERE. The other bloggers that Im up against are some of my faves, so I'm not holding out too much hope for winning, but Im thrilled to even be nominated so thank you again and lots of love as always! xo

P.S The first 300 people into the Trafford centre FOREVER21 store on Saturday get a giftcard..... GO GO GO PEOPLE.
