A day out in Oxford

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful Oxford City with my best friend Josh. We did some shopping, I bought lots of skincare bits & bobs (which I will tell you about soon) and a dress, then went for the nicest Chinese, with super fast service and a student discount (my kinda place) and then for some yummy cocktails at happy hour.

Oxford is so beautiful, there are lots of yellow stone buildings dotted throughout which give the city an exotic feel, there are also lots of very old University buildings around which are equally as enchanting. On a hot day walking through the city it's easy to imagine yourself further away from home than you really are. I had a lovely day and would really like to go back sometime soon as it's only 20 minutes on the train when I'm at home.
