Waiting for Palm Trees

Currently looking through previous summer blog posts next to a window being battered by rain. 
Please winter, just hurry up and leave. 
This is my first Sunday of work in a while and despite my determination to do something fun, I've spent most of the day googling 'top ten travel destinations for students.' Morocco, Paris and Barcelona are high up on my list- any recommendations?

Aside from this future excitement, I've got an internship! Dates haven't yet been finalised but it's a paid position in a marketing department and I couldn't be more pleased. My University course work is also reaching the final editing stages and then I just have exams to sit in May.
Palm trees and sunny weather will unfortunately have to wait!

Better late than never

coat Zara Sale

 Remember last year when everyone went crazy for pink coats? I've finally caught onto that trend. 
I'm not one for light or pastel colours because my blonde dip dye tends to clash, but this dusted pink and Mongolian fur coat is the perfect alternative. 

Aside from raking through the last rails of the Zara sale, I've been frantically applying for summer internships and placements. There is unfortunately still no news in that department but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. On a much more exciting note, I finally bought a ticket to the end of year Business Ball: dress shopping, here I come! Any store recommendations would be appreciated, I'm looking toward the likes of BCBG and cautiously avoiding the 16-year-old-looking prom dress options.

The cocoon is back

We're finally out of the minus degrees here in Edinburgh so my cocoon coat is back out to play, accompanied by my ASOS leather it made a surprisingly warm outfit. Nothing much new here, I'm still waiting on replies from my summer internship applications (fingers crossed) whilst dreaming of shorts and sunny weather...

My First Trench

A black trench coat is something I've been meaning to buy for so long, such a versatile piece that can transition through seasons and goes with everything. I bought it just in time for my marketing internship interview and trust me, for whatever reason, it makes you feel 10x more professional. I've linked this essential buy from ASOS up top.

Aside from the interview and continuing to return a bundle of sales items which I've convinced myself I do not need, I've been settling back into University as normal and the work is already beginning to pile up. We have a reading week mid February though so I'll catch up then, plus I'm thinking of doing a few beauty posts that week and a giveaway is also on the cards.
