Station Square Pittsburgh

I can't believe how long it is taking me to getting round to sharing all my pictures of Pittsburgh, but then there was alot of pictures and alot of life getting in the way of blogging. If you're interested so far I've shared my adventures at Penn State and Pittsburgh Steelers & Pirates Stadiums. As well as showing what I got up to in America, it gives a little look into what I wear on holidays. While in Pittsburgh we visited Station Square, a shopping and dining destination which was once a railway complex. If you want to pick up a perfect souvenir there is really great shops here selling everything Steelers, Pirates or Penguins related you could possibly want. The Freight House shops were once a train shed. Bessemer court is at the center of Station Square and houses a Hard Rock Cafe and a Waltzing Waters Liquid Fireworks show (in other words an impressive fountain with dancing, multicolored water jets to music). Behind Station square is an incline where you can get incredible views of the city on a cable car trek.

Favorite Bloggers of 2013

The blogging world is crammed beyond belief with inspiring, diverse and entertaining blogs. There's always a new blog to discover, a new product to try, a new trend to experiment with and a new instagram summary to nose at. So here's a collection of my favorite blogs of the year, the ones I never grew tired of and checked everyday for new posts.

Full of beautiful photography, flawless hair and makeup and vintage/girly clothes perfection. 

Always regularly updated with the best high street picks and excellent, honest makeup reviews. Perfect inspiration for outfits you actually want to wear in real life. I love how down to earth and relate-able her blog and style is.

For the sophisticated, globe-trotting approach to blogging. Never short of a recipe to try, a new place to eat or a dream holiday destination to lust after.

For something a little bit different in the blogging world. A fresh take on life and how to seize the moment. With plenty of sequins and Minnie Mouse ears.

Now we're talking super blogger with an endless array of outfits and locations to entertain readers not to mention a very cute dog. Glossy blog and equally glossy blogger.

Love seeing an Irish blogger doing so well and her account of her double-jaw surgery is really inspiring. Refreshingly honest blog. 

Love her quirky style, incredible collection of crazy trainers and her penchant for tacky trinkets be they donut key rings or boo themed paraphernalia. 

Full of pretty lifestyle and interior pictures and always with gorgeous hair and makeup.

Finally milkbubbletea for pretty, pink hued, girly photography, loads of pug related objects and chocoholic friendly recipes.

What I Got for Christmas 2013

I know there's mixed feelings out there about these type of posts, but personally I love seeing what people got for Christmas not in a bragging way but in a nosey way. It's fun to get a sneak peek into other people's holiday celebrations and what they wished for for their holiday gifts. I'm very lucky and grateful for everything I received from the wonderful people in my life. 

Fashion: I can't wait to spend my Zara voucher I received from my boyfriend, I love Zara and really want to get some new boots there. I'm also ridiculously smitten with the animal face Topshop socks my sister got me, they're just so cute.
