Gold Rush

Last weekend I couldn't be more excited for. My girlfriends and I had planned for ages to have our next meet-up in Blackpool. Last time it was down south so this time we decided to go north for Holly. I think it was me that suggested Blackpool- seaside, tacky shops, arcades and a giant Primark. What we weren't prepared for was how cold it was. Seriously it was absolutely freezing. Every the country that weekend was beautiful and warm. In Blackpool it was not. Even so we had a fantastic time laughing, catching up, eating chips and doughnuts and wondering around the arcades.

As you can probably tell from the state of my hair it was very very windy that day. I was on the look out for a really grimey amusement arcade and kept saying to the girls "the seedier and more old school it is, the better". We found this one and it was perfect for what I had in mind. I was also finally able to shoot my new 'Rebecca' necklace I received from 'Onecklace' over a week ago. You cannot understand how obsessed I am with this necklace. I've worn it pretty much every single day since I received it.

Cropped Shirt- Heyday! Vintage Style | Skirt- Primark | Sneakers- Newlook |
Satchel- Cambridge Satchel | Necklace- Onecklace

I was over the moon to be asked by Onecklace if I wanted to select a necklace as I used to have one. I bought a 'Carrie Style' one 7 years ago from Argos, the chain broke and it's been sitting in my jewellery box ever since. As some of you know I am a massive Sex and the City geek. I mean serious geek. At University like the fool I am I bought the DVD boxset impulsively one day and then had no food money for the rest of the week. What an idiot! but you know what? It was the best investment I made because we watched it non stop for two years. I love the fashion, the stories, the relationships it's still one of my favourite TV series till this day- that and Friends.

There were several different styles on the website to choose from but for me it had the be the Carrie font and in gold. I selected the smaller chain length too of 16" so it sits highers on the collar bone just like Carrie's.
