So just chill 'til the next episode.

The Kooples leather jacket. Topshop 'tell someone who cares' tee: £22 (short sleeve version online). Vintage suede skirt: £8, charity shop (suck on THAT asos and topshop). Oasis chelsea boots: £41 (now on sale!). Rimmel Kate Moss 08 lipstick.

Photos by Jade.

It's when I'm sitting in bed, with a cup of tea nearly too cold to drink, without make-up on and with a grey "Spring" sky outside, that I'm glad I have a massive backlog of photos ready to go. So, the beady-eyed Instagram followers be thinking "but I thought you hadn't been to Liverpool for ages?" would be correct - this was over a month ago, but let's pass it off as a #TBS, leave the eyeliner far, far away, and save the PJ's of the day for another desperate outfit post.

I headed back to my university city on the first fair weather weekend of the year with two unnecessary coats in tow. First stop was Bill's with Jade, having a four hours too late breakfast which went down just like the treat it was. We then popped over to the Georgian quarter (fave 4eva) to snap these photos before I met up with my friends in the Quarter for a catch-up over crumble. We left the sweets behind as we headed into town to avoid the Harvey Nichols beauty bazaar get an outfit for the oncoming evening of green-lit bars and, I quote, "the dungeon". A lot of dancing later, we were waking up to a much-needed Moose before everyone went their own ways. Weekends in Liverpool are always fleeting, but that's just the perfect excuse to head back soon.

As long-time readers all know (read: I don't shut up about it), Liverpool is my favourite UK city, but when it comes to places a little further afield I'm not necessarily on the hunt for a constant Beatles soundtrack, even if it helps.

Numero uno is, without a doubt, heading to Scandinavia to see the Northern Lights. Blame it on my childhood obsession with Philip Pullman if you will, but those fuzzy green and blue lights have always held an enigmatic appeal that I've never quite got over, recently reignited after reading Carrie's beautiful post.

Next up is Osaka. Or, let's be honest, a round-the-country trip of Japan. I studied Japanese at GCSE, and although I may have forgotten the finer details of the language my love for the country (and their food, come on) is still going strong.

Completing the travel trinity is Italy. I can't quite pinpoint a city (Florence for its art? Venice for its beauty? Just pick the whole country for its pasta?), but it's always been a long-time favourite of lots of my friends, and I want a piece of the pizza. I nearly headed to Milan whilst in Germany, but after deciding to go the day before, our plans unfortunately never had time to form.

The above is my entry to Transun's blogger competition to win a trip to see the Northern Lights. As a general rule I don't enter any competitions on my blog, but as it's been a dream of mine to see them since I was 12, I thought I'd make a little well-lit exception for this one. Fancy giving it a go yourself? Find the details here.
