Weekend catch up: Baby Metal, Lush and present shopping

It’s my mum’s birthday in a few weeks so dad and I went present shopping together. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition and I enjoy spending time with him. As Saturday was the only day we both have free between now and her birthday, we decided to go then and chose Cheltenham. I also bought other presents for my family for later on in the year. 🎁🎄 Unfortunately I can’t share what I got them in case they’re reading this 😉 but I can share some of the new bits dad and I treated ourselves to. Our first stop Read More…

Weekend catch up and shopping trip

This weekend my dad and I spent some quality time together, just the two of us. We went for breakfast in Brogan’s  (Swindon) and did a bit of shopping. The main reason for going shopping was so I could finish shopping for mother’s day presents. More on that in a couple of weeks (Mother’s day is 26th March in the UK this year). 🙂 We started our day off with breakfast – dad had an ‘Ultimate breakfast’ (previously known as Brogan’s breakfast) and I had a bagle with cream cheese. Both were really good.  After breakfast we headed to HMV Read More…

The issue is after my wardrobe tidy out / wardrobe revamp, there are clothes I really need to replace and a few gaps in my wardrobe. I wrote a list last year of clothes I felt I needed to Read More…

Cirencester : A Town Guide

Cirencester, Gloucestershire: The capital of the cotswolds. NB. I have also submitted a similar article at Cut Out + Keep. The best thing about Cirencester (or Corinium) is its history. It was the second largest Roman town and has a bunch of historical sites in the town and surrounding villages. On Cotswold Avenue is the site of a Roman amphitheatre. It’s still buried but retains its shape. It’s great for a walk and for taking photos from the top! The Corinium Museum in Cirencester is, as you’d expect, dedicated to the Roman history of the town but also national history. Read More…

Happy Birthday to me!

So, Wednesday (7th) was my birthday! I had the whole week off work and decided to do a little something each day to celebrate. Monday – BBQ As it was early May Bank Holiday in the UK, all my family had the day off work and decided to throw me a birthday BBQ at my house. In true fashion, we had too much food prepared! My sister made me a birthday cake and cupcakes – they were themed around my favourite book as a child. Tuesday – Dinner and a movie Artur surprised me by booking the day off work Read More…
