army dreamers

I've so far not had the best week, what little time management skills I have have really gone out the window these past few days, which has left me feeling a bit stressed and worried if I'm honest! However I'm going home tomorrow for the weekend which should hopefully give me a chance to recharge my batteries or whatever it is I need to do so I can come back to uni and get myself back on track!

Anyway I had these photos from when I went out on Sunday. This was when my family were still here so my sister kindly took pictures of me, she seems to be developing a real eye for it! Considering that it was Halloween I honoured the day by going a bit gothic, so I wore this burgundy velvet dress I got from Primark a few weeks ago which I then paired with my army jacket and a snuggly ASOS snood along with all my usual black and gold accessories. I really like this dress, it's actually a lovely shape and fit, my only problem with it is that the long sleeves really chafe on the insides of my elbows and leave me with a sore red patch there whenever I wear it. I suppose it's just down to the lining of the velvet not being particularly soft and I suppose it's to be expected from somewhere like Primark, still if it didn't do that I'd probably wear it so much more as I love the shape and colour!

As we were out on Sunday we also went out for a bit of lunch at Marks & Spencers (well actually we ate out pretty much all weekend apart from when I cooked for me and my sister on Saturday night but anyway that's beside the point!) In Newcastle they have a proper restaurant set up rather than the usual cafe I'm used to back in Yorkshire and they have seriously lovely food! I had a lasagne, but they've got all sorts of other gorgeous things as well as their amazing melt-in-the-middle chocolate puddings that they serve with ice cream AND cream! I didn't get a picture of it but you can imagine how yummy it is!

They also have Coke in glass bottles, which is probably the only time I actually really enjoy Coke. Why is it that it tastes so much better out of a glass bottle anyway?
