Weekend Away In York

View from the train
So last weekend I went to York with my boyfriend. It was absolutely lovely! The weather was gorgeous throughout – couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to go away. 

illusion dress
OOTD Saturday: 
I wore one of my favourite dresses – the ‘illusion dress’. I always get so many compliments about how my figure looks in it so I thought hey perfect start to a lovely weekend. Its only from a little boutique near where I live but I love it.
Train selfie.. Had to be done. (Haha)
I usually hate wearing my glasses but I’m blind as a bat without them – which isn’t good when trying to find your way around a new place. 
apple house york
We stayed at the Apple House in York. It was a really nice little hotel. Very clean, pretty room. The lady who runs the hotel was also very nice. I loved the cute little detail on the door of the room! 
So during the day we went shopping, and my boyfriend treated me to a pandora ring < 3
Very cute 🙂 Enjoyed our little afternoon looking around York and in all the shops! (I love shopping.. A LOT)
We went for a meal in this cute little cafe – which had the nicest milkshakes ever. 
Made practically from pure ice cream… Mmmm. As you can see he clearly was enjoying his a lot haha!

Then for the night time I decided to dress up a bit as we were going for a meal at a Indian place named Saffron then out for drinks afterwards. 
I wore my flowery jumpsuit from Fashion Union. Its so comfy and great to wear as you can dress it up or dress it down as you please.
I don’t wear a lot of make up so I wore my MAC lashes to make a slight difference in my day to night look.

Then on Sunday we went back into town again for some more shopping! I visited Cath kidston and treated myself to some lovely bits before stopping off at Starbucks.
elegant touch nails
Sunday night I did my nails ready for our last meal in York before we headed back the next morning. I used the Elegant touch press on nails. To be honest I didn’t think they would be any good – I thought they would fall off within an hour but they lasted for a good few days! They don’t destroy your nails in the slightest either – bonus.
Here’s us all packed up ready to go home 🙁
As you can see my boyfriend had a small weekend bag (like most people would for a two day trip) whereas I had a suitcase haha. I am incapable of packing light!
Great weekend all round – I didn’t want to go home!
I’m hoping to do something similar soon!
