Picnic in the Park

Uncategorized

Good evening lovelies, how’re you doing? ~

I’m hot…like really hot…

…There’s been a heatwave in England for a few days now and it’s been so lovely having wonderful weather for a change! Although air-conditioning is a foreign concept to British people so the 30 degree heat has been a little bit of a struggle at times haha 🙂

Since the weather has been so brilliant me and my boyfriend decided to go for a little picnic and a walk around Attingham Park (near Shrewsbury) so we could relax in the shade and enjoy the weather!

We packed sandwiches and lots of sun cream and headed out for the day.

Sadly I did end up getting blisters on the backs of my feet from the walk we went on 😦 but, honestly, I don’t care because the weather was so worth it!!

The park is actually a deer park so I definitely recommend a visit if you ever find yourself in Shropshire ❤

We ate a lot of good picnic food and lay watching the clouds – a perfect day 🙂

Peri peri humous is essential

I hope wherever you are reading this from that you have great weather too and are making the most of the summer x

Polaroids

Uncategorized

Hey, hi and hello friends ❤

You may have read my recent post from a few days ago where I shared some photos of a pizza and cocktails night that I had with some friends? Well on that same evening I ended up taking some cute Polaroids!

I got an Instax Wide 300 camera for Christmas this year and had only taken a few photos with it so far, so I thought I would take it out for a spin the other night 🙂

Some of them came out a little too white as the lighting wasn’t too great…but they are still so fun in my opinion! I thought you guys might want to see them so I thought I’d put them up on here ~

Georgia had to use her toe as my camera doesn’t have a timer (oops!) x
Olive catching at its finest 🙂

Hope you like!

Birthday Celebrations in Lockdown

Uncategorized

Happy New year and I hope, if you are reading this, you are well!! 🙂

On the 18th of January I celebrated my 24th birthday with my family in England’s THIRD national lockdown…

Hotel Chocolate is ridiculously tasty…notice some are already missing!

I had planned to have a party last year but decided against it because of my Master’s degree being very demanding at the time and thought I would have one this year instead 😂. That obviously did NOT go as planned and so a little family celebration it had to be!

Brought my Polaroid out for the occasion too ~

It was lovely in all honesty. We had a buffet, cake, cards, gifts, and a close friend even sent me a little surprise balloon.

Victoria Sponge is one of the only cakes I like! Not a massive fan of cake but I love them for their novelty haha 🙂

I hope eventually I’ll be able to celebrate properly with friends, but I’m not holding my breath haha.

I hope 24 ends up being an exciting year. It’s hard having to stay in every day, never really achieving anything or moving forward. I want to turn 25 having done something I’m proud of.

Aaaand I ended the day painting!

Much love,

Wrapping Christmas Presents

Uncategorized

Hello!!

Today I finally got around to wrapping my Christmas presents for my family and friends!

I’m so glad it’s finally Christmas time as this year has been so utterly crap that it’s nice to finally have something exciting and joyful happening…

I still haven’t quite finished my Christmas shopping in all honesty as I still have a few little things for pick up for one or two people but it’s nearly DONE.

I really enjoy buying gifts for people. I love seeing their reactions and opening my laptop and spending hours trying to find the perfect thing, it’s…therapeutic?

I’m also hoping to put up our Christmas decorations tomorrow as well, so then it will feel really festive in the house haha 🙂 ~

I hope everyone is safe and well but also feeling festive if you are someone who celebrates Christmas.

Visiting the Birmingham Sky Bar

Uncategorized

Hello and I hope you are having a wonderful December first! I haven’t posted much on here lately as England went into a second lockdown at the start of November and I didn’t want to post something just for the sake of posting, ya know?

Happily, that lockdown finishes TOMORROW (Dec 2nd) so I want to post a lot of Christmassy content this month (well at least I intend to…we’ll see haha).

BUT before I do that I want to write about last March when the literal last thing I did before the Rona took over was visit a sky bar in Birmingham!!

Food area of Selfridges

It was my friends idea as she’s lived in Birmingham for a couple years now and really recommend it for a fun evening…

Before we went we had a day shopping and eventually got tapas at a Spanish restaurant, which was incredibly divine. Of course we also had some cocktails 🍸

We headed up to the bar around 10:30pm and sat outside with a view of the city ~ inside they had a piano and places to dine and it was honestly just a really lovely place to go.

It’s weird that it’s March again in 3 months…this year has gone so fast because none of us have done anything!!! I hope 2021 brings back some normality and adventures.
