Dress, Tights & Boots - Primark
Necklace - ASOS

My best friend, Sarah, and I headed to a concert/all day festival thing in Belfast yesterday - we decided this meant dressing up and lots of glitter. We drank cider and danced and Sarah cheered me up when the music made me sad, then we danced more. I have never been to a proper festival before, so let's call the mud and portaloos preparation for Bestival next month - I'm super psyched that Echo Falls are sending myself and some other lovely bloggers over to the Isle of Wight to enjoy lots of good music and share some of it with you! Look forward to me most likely falling into a puddle of mud at some point and blogging about it.

Ooh, also I got my fringe cut! There's an amazing retro salon in Belfast called Vintage Rocks - they'll be including my Lily Pink Bakery cupcakes in a new package called Tea Tuesdays from September - so we had a bit of a hair cut/cupcake eating meeting! Sounds good to me! I decided to be slightly impulsive and get a fringe cut, I love it though!


(I am messy, I think that's probably either dry shampoo or toothpaste I've managed to get on my dress here...oops)


Anyway, I know this is basically the same outfit I shared before but with different boots and necklace, but I so rarely get the chance to go out and dress up even a little anymore - so I thought it was a good opportunity to share! And to get Sarah to take some snaps. Isn't she lovely? Check out her blog, she's a professional photographer so expect way better photos than you find on here!



Me and my big sister, another Sarah.

I missed sharing music with you all so here's a lovely Kimbra video. I just booked tickets to see her in Vancouver where i'm visiting my brother next month (any must sees/eats highly appreciated!). I love her, I think I might just stash her in my backpack and bring her home with me.

Until next time! x
