Sunday Brunch at The Botanist

Food

Good morning ~

I went out for the most delicious brunch on Sunday and had to share some pictures with you!!

Me and two friends drove to a town called Chester (UK) and had brunch at 11:30 in restaurant we’d never tried before called ‘The Botanist’.

Between 10am and 12pm you can order brunch where you get a menu with 5 sections and you pick a small meal from every section 🙂

You get a little juice shot with it too! x

It’s a really fun concept and the food is honestly incredible! (Vegetarian options)

I 100% recommend the Nutella French toast 🙂

A smoothie for me lol

The brunch also comes with the option to order bottomless drinks for 90 mins ~

I couldn’t get this because I was driving but my friends defiantly made the most of this and ordered many glasses of spritz haha

After brunch we did a little shopping and bought a little too much (oops) before heading home.

It’s was actually 30 degrees in England on Sunday and has been for a few days now as we are having a little heatwave…

…So walking around the town got a little hot after a while – my car was scorching hot when we got back to it!

That’s all for now x

Much love,

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

Brown Floral H&M Dress

Outfits

Hello lovelies, what do ya think of my dress?!

Got this maxi dress from H&M about 3 weeks ago and finally wore it out! I LOVE IT ❤

I saw it a while ago while I was shopping in the Trafford Centre (Manchester) and instantly wanted it…but they had none left in my size 😦

Sooo…after thinking it over for a while I eventually bought it online!

Wearing with my Ted Baker bag

They recommended that I went a size up (as it runs a little small) so I wear mine in a UK 10.

It fits great at that size and doesn’t sit too tightly anywhere on my body – which is nice because, let’s face it, who wants to be in a tight dress in the hot summer?

I haven’t got any photos of the back but it sits very low on the waist and has a little zip that runs up the left side 🙂 – I really like the back of this dress and wish I had a photo to show!!

I think my favourite thing about this dress is the lace detail on the breast – so elegant and pretty 😍

That’s all for now x

National Botanic Garden of Wales

Travel

Hello everyone and welcome to June! x

The past week as been quite lovely for me as I’ve had a week off from work to visit South-West Wales with my family and boyfriend.

The weather was surprisingly gorgeous and we had a lot of great days exploring in the sun ❤

One Thursday of last week we visited the ‘National Botanic Garden of Wales’ for the day! It’s was a fun day but sadly it actually ended up raining for the majority of the time we were there… (typical!) but it was still a great day out!

Below I have added some photos I took of the day including the tropical house and many many beautiful (and weird) flowers 🌸

Tropical House 🌴
This place was very pretty

This huge dome contained lots of plants and flowers from across the world! I’ve taken photos of a few of my favs which you can see below 😀

Humidity and hair don’t mix…
Example of ‘weird’
Like I said, LOTS of RAIN hehe

The pics below are of the very cute Japanese garden ~

So cute!!!

Hope you are having a great summer and I’ll be back on here soon lovelies ❤

Peace and love,

Montenegro

Travel

Heya, I hope if you are reading this that you are having a great day and all is well with you…

I want to write a short post about Montenegro as I went there last summer and LOVED IT!

So many chic photo spots…

It’s about a 3 hour plane ride from the UK and is not a typical holiday destination here in the UK. I stayed in Kotor and it is very quiet and friendly and extremely hot if you go in August I found out haha (expect 40 degrees Celsius + this time of year).

The bay is a popular swimming spot for many of the local people

The vibe (and the food for that matter) is very Italian (think Lake Como) and the country just boosts elegance. Expect white yachts in fancy harbours and fine wine on balconies overlooking the bay.

…This country was certainly perfect for the setting of Casino Royal!

I spent a lot of my time fussing the thousands of local cats that hang around the bay, while also dining in restaurants on the bay where little houses are nestled into the bayside.

Montenegro is worth a visit for the scenery alone and I would highly recommend a visit here. It’s the perfect romantic get-away or anniversary holiday!
