    The first of many

    Evening lovelies

    I don’t know about you, but I am really glad it’s the weekend! Right now I’m sat in the kitchen watching the boyf cook me a roast dinner while I enjoy a nice glass of wine. Ok there is no wine. There is diet coke in an old jam jar because lets face it, I am just not that sophisticated. Tonight is date night and by date night I mean, sweat pants and Game of Thrones on repeat.  I just gotta convince him that shows like PPL are the way forward too but in all honesty, Ill probably be watching his fishing videos before that ever happens!

    Anyway, that wasn’t really what I wanted to tell you about… Today something HUGE happened. So you know how I have frequently mentioned before that I was in the process of convincing (read: blackmail and bribing) the boyf to help me take some outfit pics? It happened, today it actually happened! And you know what? Im rather impressed. The pictures turned out WAY better than expected! Not that I ever doubted him or anything…but like HURRAY! Thanks boo! Perfect timing as well as this outfit is like my favorite at the moment (so be prepared to see it A LOT). I feel like I just had to share it with you guys. What I love the most about it, is that in many ways it’s so unlike me. I’m really pushing my boundaries in terms of my fashion comfort zone here. It’s so colorful and vibrant though and well, patterny! Not sure thats even a word. However, I did get the dress which by the way, is in satin, for a bargain on the H&M website. £14.99 baby! And they say you cant put a price on love…pffft! H&M also have it in plum red and not gonna lie, Im probably gonna have to order that too. Oh and the shoes? From topshop and so so so comfy.

    Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend 🙂

    Camping, London, Misc, Tip, Travel

    City Girl in the countryside

    Boys and Girls, this might come as a shock to a lot of you but I absolutely love camping. Well ok love is a strong word, but I like really enjoy it. Ok ok, Im not a HUGE fan of the whole sharing a toilet and shower with strangers thing. There is also the no electricity thing, and you know, sleeping on an air mattress, but besides that, it’s great! And not gonna lie, I love an adventure 🙂

    The boyfriend and I started going last summer, in a desperate attempt to squeeze a cheap vacation into our budget and get some quality time together that wasn’t based around work, gym and when our housemates were out of town. Last year we ventured down to Devon, twice. It was the first time I had ever been to the south coast England. (Besides a quick day trip Brighton once when the family was visiting and I think the brothers were 7 and 5.) Rather embarrassing considering for how long I have been living in England for. Dont count the years, Im not.

    My god though, the english seaside is absolutely fabulous. Seriously, why do people travel abroad when you have such beautiful beaches in this country?! I really regret not bringing my camera last year but you can find a couple of snaps on my Instagram. In an attempt to learn from my mistakes, I made it my mission to bring my camera this time… which was great besides the fact that it was pretty grey and rainy for most of our trip.. sorry guys!

    Our first trip this year went to a little village in Suffolk near the coast, called Shottisham. The campsite cost us £15 a night, and was situated within walking distance to a good old fashion country pub. (Great for those of us who just HAD to watch the football…). We went for drives to award-winning bakeries (Check out Pump Street bakery in Otford) long walks in huge wheat fields, fished on pebble beaches (one of them had a dead smelly seal on it, which was so sad) and drowned our tent in heavy rain fall. 98% of the houses were painted pink, and every garden was filled with gorgeous flowers. It was like walking around in movie, or on a pinterest board. Incredible for inspiration, and great when you need some peace of mind. One of the days, we spent the entire day at the beach, mostly in silence just enjoying the little sunshine that was there, while the boyfriend fished. It was such a rare moment where it was just us and we were both in this perfect place. As a bonus I also got heavily sunburned on my back, and now have a tan that will hopefully last the rest of the year. *fingerscrossed* (also kids, skin cancer is no joke. Dont be stupid, wear sunscreen!)

    Im still working on getting the boyfriend to take outfit pics of me, so for now all you get is pictures of anything green and colorful. That is me avoiding anything grey that could remotely remind me of London.

    Back again

    Guess whos back, back again? (help me, I’ve got Eminem stuck in my head!)

    Im currently lying on the sofa, nursing a hangover and trying to consume my body weight in diet coke while I wait for my home made pita pizza consisting of 75% cheese to be finished. Having said that, I started out really well this morning with a glass of kale juice and a bowl of strawberry quark. Somewhere it went down hill and I just want all the cheese. No surprise I feel far from fresh, with last nights mascara is still trying to desperately cling to my eyelashes, and my hair crusty from too much hair spray. The bf is so lucky, cause I am clearly such a catch! This is why I rarely go out, I despise hangovers, and sadly I always gets some really bad ones. But I am grabbing this opportunity to sit down and update this blog, because I know its been a while. Lets start with these outfit pics, taken back when the sun was so bright it made my skin look ghostly white. I hope you all are having a great weekend. Im off to buy some ice cream,  but dont tell the bf because I dont wanna share. haha sorry not sorry! Happy sunday!
