Missguided Monday

How good are bank holidays?!
The only down-side to my weekend has been the horrendous weather - Manchester has been graced with rain, rain and some more rain. When the sun finally made an appearance this afternoon I spied an opportunity to show you my new shirt from Missguided.
I've only ever bought from Missguided once before, when I got my dress for Grad Ball and after seeing them worn by every blogger around I thought I'd have another browse of their website.
Before I knew it I was entering my card details and this shirt was one of my purchases - get your hands on it here.
With free deliveries for purchases over £40 I think we both know that this wasn't the only thing I bought, keep your eyes peeled for my other indulgences...

After a 17 day trip across Vietnam it would be pretty hard to do a blog post detailing every last bit, so I'm going to keep it short and sweet. 
We travelled up from Ho Chi Minh, to Nha Trang, to Hoi An, to Hanoi, before going all the way back down to Phu Quoc.
17 days may seem like quite a long time, but I certainly could of done with more than a few extra days. Vietnam has potentially earned its spot as my favourite country; beautiful views, food, people, beaches...there was nothing not to enjoy.

If you were going to Vietnam and I had to give 5 tips on what can't be missed, it would be...

1. Vin Pearl, Nha Trang - for around £15 you jump on a cable car that goes across the sea to a little island. On this island you will find a theme park, a water park, a huge arcade (where everything is free), a sea world centre and a twice-a-day dolphin show. It is the most bizarre yet enjoyable place I've ever been to.

2. Hoi An - this was by far my favourite place on the trip. The town's name translates to 'peaceful meeting place' and I think that sums it up. With amazing markets and lantern surrounded rivers, it's definitely worth a visit.

3. Why Not Bar - we came across one in Nha Trang and one in Hoi An. In Hoi An it was pretty tricky to find, but at around £3 entry you get unlimited drinks so I'd say the time spent finding it paid off.

4. Halong Bay Castaway Trip - everyone I know who's been to Vietnam seems to of done it. There's a few different ones, however, this one is known as the 'party' trip and it's a lot of fun. You spend one night on the boat in the bay and the second night on the island - it feels a little bit like being on shipwrecked. With opportunities to go rock climbing, kayaking and tubing it's 100% worth the money. Not to mention the amazing food...

5. Mud Baths, Nha Trang - faced with a rainy day we decided to try out the mud baths. Who knew sitting what's essentially a hole full of mud could be so relaxing?! It feels amazing on your skin, and once you've had enough of the mud you can head over to jet sprays, hot springs and waterfalls. Bliss.

Summer Days

Outfit: Top - H&M, Skirt - Primark, Shoes - Topshop

I'm saddened to say that I am back from an amazing trip to Vietnam! I will give you all the details in a blog post at some point, however, in the meantime I thought I'd do a quick outfit post.
How good is the sunshine?! Coming home after a holiday is never fun, but the good weather has definitely helped to ease me back in to Manchester life. 
With plans to spend my Sunday enjoying some food and drinks with friends I thought it was the perfect opportunity to whip out my new skirt (from Primark?!). If you live in/near Manchester then get yourself to Spinningfields next time the weather's good, we spent the day sat in deckchairs drinking delicious cocktails from the two pop-up bars and what a great Sunday it has been!
I'm just hoping next weekend is as hot as this one has been...
