Week in Pictures

Blonde micro highlights 1
I FINALLY got my hair done. I went for micro-highlights as I wanted a really natural look and I'm so, so happy with how they turned out. I think it might actually have been the first time ever I've left the hairdressers without wanting to go foetal. They actually look even lighter here, you can see the true colour in my last two outfit posts!

Visited Charleton Fruit Farm out near Montrose, which my Mam took me to because she knows how much of a Halloween nut I am. They've done it all up amazingly, and the decor continues right through into the cafe (don't even get me started on the gift shop). My Mum got one of their famous strawberry tarts (verdict: an empty plate and a big fat smile) and I went for the goats cheese and walnut salad which really was top notch. I'm counting down the days now until they do it all up for Christmas because I have a feeling it's going to be pretty spectacular.
Josephine's tapas restaurant Aberdeen It was Rob's birthday on Saturday (25, what an old fart) so we went out for dinner to Josephine's, which is both of our favourite restaurants in Aberdeen. As always we ordered way too many tapas and - as always - still finished them all anyway. What else are you supposed to do when they add four new specials to the menu including tuna steak with chorizo and cod with pancetta? It's definitely one to check out if you live near or are ever visiting, plus they've got the crowd-winning BYOB rule in place.

A quick snap of my outfit for the day - I wore my Next Acne dupe and a fedora that was apparently intent on masking my identity

This illustration by Helen Hird arrived on my doorstep and completely made my day. It's so incredibly flattering when someone takes the time to illustrate you, and even more so when they go to the effort of including your favourite pair of shoes.
