At the weekend, my best friend and I went to Stratford Upon Avon for my birthday. We went last year too, and we decided to go to the same place for afternoon tea, which was at the Grosvenor Hotel. Because we went on a Sunday I thought the whole town would be dead, but it was actually rammed with people! We had a walk down the canal, popped into the shops on the high street, and they had a really lovely big local market on. After we had a little walk around the town, we went to the hotel for…

So as it was my birthday on Tuesday and the weather was so lovely, I decided for my birthday dinner we should have a little picnic in the garden with my family. We bought loads of nice picnic food, and I’d also just received this gorgeous picnic hamper which I had won from Em’s blog, so it seemed ideal! Even kitty Merlin joined us for a bit… Summer Picnic These photos we’re actually taken after the event as I was too excited scoffing food to take photographs, so there wasn’t much food left. But we had a selection of cheeses,…

A bit of a random post.. but on Tuesday I was meant to be going to watch Britains Got Talent Live auditions at the Palladium in Central London with some friends. However, when we got there, unfortunately they were seriously overbooked and there was no seats left! We were all pretty gutted. My friends boyfriend had got the tickets for us from Applause Store and we were really excited! So 5 of us got the train into London in the afternoon so we could get there over an hour early, but we still weren’t early enough. So seeing as we’d…

On Saturday I attended the best blogger meet up ever in Birmingham! It was organised by the lovely, bubbly Gemma from Buttons Blog, with help from Clare from A Bit of This and That and Sara from Pretty in Pink. They worked really hard to put on a fantastic day for 30 of us bloggers! The day started off with a meeting at Starbucks and then we separated off into little groups. Terri, Tereza, Hayley, Erica and myself wondered around and Erica actually bravely went to get an ear piercing! Here are some of my photos from the day, as…

Hello everyone! I sincerely hope that you all had a very enjoyable Christmas period and that you got everything you wished for and ate lots of delicious food! In my house we started the day at 9am with a delicious croissant breakfast! I opened a few pressies in my fabulous Santa Claus onesie (which I won from New Look!) with Merlin, and then I went and got changed into my proper Christmas dress (post coming soon!). My sister, her partner, my niece, and my baby nephew came over at noon to open more presents, and then we all sat down…

 So I thought I would do a little catch up post about what I’ve been up to lately! Now that I’m unfortunately unemployed, I have lots of spare time, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to visit my boyfriend Liam for a week! We met at uni in Birmingham, and when I graduated I moved back home to the East and he moved back to Wales. So he lives 100+ miles from me but it’s only two and a half hours on the train so not too bad. I still see him as much as possible! He…
