"Procrastination is my sin. It brings me naught but sorrow. I know that I should stop it. In fact, I will--tomorrow” Gloria Plizter
This is my sexiness outfit of the day to date. Last minute day offs are amazing! I am currently curled up on my mum's sofa watching day time tv & waiting for my nails to dry. Bliss!! I love the blog, I love everything it has given me but I hate when it runs into my weekend. If you read this & you work all week as I do, you really live for your weekends. Not only just to party but to relax, get things done and to spend time with family and friends. So hence my day off. And boy, is it good so far. Who ever said Friday the 13th was unlucky??
The reason for my day off today, other than servicing my car & pigging out on my mum's sofa is that tomorrow I am travelling to Derry with my fellow bloggers, Gemma Louise from That Belfast Girl and Caroline from The Red Dutchess to experience the amazing festival that is Culture Tech! With the City of Culture celebrations, Derry/Londonderry is the place to be at the moment. The Culture Tech festival is a festival that is running from the 9th of Sept to the 15th of Sept. It is an epic festival celebrating digital technology, media, music and art featuring 150 events, 100 + speakers, 100+ acts and of course 3 random bloggers let lose on Derry!!!
Tomorrow, the three of us will be wearing fab outfits gifted to us from the amazing shopping centre that is Foyleside Shopping Centre. Now each of us was told that we could go to Foyleside, pick a voucher and we could shop to we drop. The vouchers were to a value of 50, 100 and 150 pounds. Guess which one I picked? Yup, the girl who hasn't shopping in nine months picked the 50 pound one. Oh, don't get me wrong, receiving anything because of a blog is amazing!!! But imagine if I had got the 150 one? I probably would have went crazy.
I had travelled to Foyleside with my mum and little sis. Being from the North coast myself, travelling to Derry on a shopping trip was part of my teenage years. Closest Primark to Coleraine!!!! Usually we used to drive but mum has now been converted to the train because it was easy. Michael Palin himself called the Derry Translink Railway one of the best in the world due to its beauty.
Once I had picked my voucher, I didn't know where to start. Foyleside has great shops; Topshop, River Island, Debenhams, H&M, Marks and Spencer. But we had to buy a full outfit with our voucher. Now that is hard. Trying to restrict an addict to indulging her passion. I hit up H&M first and I fell in love with this shirt. I had wanted a green shirt for ages, a nice fitted one. I tried this on and I had to have it. I wanted to get something I didn't have and really wanted but it was 30 pounds. That was over half my voucher gone and I still had to get something for my bottom. Nightmare. I tried so many options in other shops. Black pencil skirt in River Island, white jeans in Topshop, a skater skirt in Dorothy Perkins. But I had all those things. There was no way I was getting something I already had when I haven't been allowed to get anything this year!!!
Check out my full outfit tomorrow at the Culture Tech festival!! I can't wait to have fun at all the events that they have lined up! Most are free and around the city so if you are about, come check them out! Culture Tech Festival!
