A City Break // Amsterdam

I have just come back from a couple of days away in Amsterdam and it was beautiful.
Amsterdam has always had me in two minds. I never wanted to go because of cannabis, I have a passionate hate for it and the smell it has but I did always want to go to explore the city and ride bikes around the streets and parks. For my Mums birthday in October, I decided instead of presents that she probably doesn't even want/need, my sister and I would take her away for a couple of days to ride bikes and drink coffee. It's something she's wanted to do and so have I, so it seemed like the best possible gift! Sometimes adventures and memories are far better than physical gifts (although I did leave flowers in her house and buy her a necklace that she wanted... I love gift giving!) My negative thoughts of Amsterdam have completely disappeared because the beauty overran my silly preconceptions.

Holiday Outfits from House Of Fraser

Before I went away on the most amazing holiday of my life (multiple reasons for that!) I was lucky enough to be gifted two beautiful pieces of clothing from House Of Fraser. Even though it is now October and Summer is officially over, this is a great time to head to the sales and pick up some key pieces for Summer 2016. Sale shopping is a tricky business because you don't want to purchase 2015 trend items. However, key and simple pieces are the best way to go because they can be reflected into your wardrobe - whatever the trend!
