Checks and Charity Shops!

Hello Lovelies!

Well, exciting news! I've teamed up with ASOS to show you all my favourite hotspots in my hometown of Aberdeen. I'm finally stepping away from my front door (which I'm sure you're all bored of seeing!) and showing you a little glimpse into my world and the place I live. I thought I'd start off with a quirky charity shop that is a five minute walk from my house. Unlike other stuffy and boring charity shops, this 'Chest, Heart and Stroke' store has been completely revamped and decorated, making it unique and exciting to shop in. Vintage chairs, suitcases and all sorts hang from the ceiling, making it a great treasure trove for all you bargain hunters out there, plus you're giving to a great cause. What's not to love?!

After shopping for a while, I ended up in Union Terrace Gardens, a tranquil and silent garden right in the heart of the city, where it's great to clear your head and try to forget about scary university deadlines... 

Also witness my best attempts to imitate Blair Waldorf sitting on the steps of The Met in New York. I'm however, sitting on the steps of the local Aberdeen library, which sadly, doesn't quite compare haha! 

Hope you've enjoyed my first wee post on Aberdeen, more soon!
