Hey beautiful people!
I hope your weekends are starting well! 
If you follow me on twitter (@HollCooke) or instagram (holljc) then you'll know last night wasn't a usual 'Friday night' for me last night. As instead of going to 'Group' as usual, I went to a gig! I've been so exited about this for the last few weeks! I went to see a band called Rend Collective Experiment, and they're freaking awesome! (The tour is called Campfire, hence the campfire themed name) You should check them out on youtube, especially if you like bands like Mumford and Sons, because they have a very similar energy and are also from Ireland! 
And this was my outfit, although I have to add, minus those specific shoes! The shoes I actually wore, which you can see here, were still wet from when I had to walk to the bus station on Thursday. So I needed some shoes to wear to take these pictures, so if you want to see the shoes/boots I actually wore then click the, here, link above!
Anyhow, this was what I wore for the gig. I wasn't really sure what to wear, but in the end I think this was perfect. As it was absolutely roasting in the place they held it, they said there was over 1200 people, which I'm sure the room was way too small for, but never mind! I was really happy I finally got to wear this dress though. As it's the final item I brought whilst on holiday! I love the pattern, as it's so pretty and colourful, perfect for spring really! 
What do you think of my dress? Have you been to a gig recently? 
Love and cuddles
God bless

Oh, and I apologise for the gaps in my posts over the last week or so. My exams start on Monday, so I've been really busy with revision. But I promise that once my exams are done in just over a week and a half, then we'll be back to normal posting!
Oh, and one final thing! 
Some of you may have noticed, that at the beginning of the week I hit 100 followers! I am so so thankful and blessed that anyone wants to read my ramblings, and stay tuned to everything I put up here. So thank you so much, I really can't express how thankful and humbled I am that people are actually interested in reading my blog! And I'm so blessed by how much it's grown over the last 8 or so months! Once my exams are out of the way, I'm going to be doing a giveaway, so keep your eyes pealed for that.
I still don't really understand what's going on with GFC, but so that you can keep up to date with everything going on over here, I'm also on Bloglovin (here), so remember to follow over there if you do want to see the latest goings on!

  5. Love the colours of your dress. It's awkward when indoors is so much warmer than outside but that's what cardigans are for...
    Good luck with your exams! I've got mechanics tomorrow, gahahahahh. Hope you're feeling pretty chilled about them. At this stage, I feel like that if I can't do it now I'll never be able to do it, which is not very good so I have to get out of that habit!

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless...
