A Week Away in Devon...

21 Sep 2020




Hello everyone,

 I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the Autumn months, although it has been about 25 degrees recently. Myself and Sam and his family were lucky enough to make it away to Devon a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to share with you some of the things we got up to and the photos we took. We had such a wonderful time and it was so lovely to go away and just relax and enjoy each others company.


We stayed in a wonderful place called Pickwell Manor, which is basically a Manor House converted into multiple apartments that are self catered. It was unlike anything I have stayed in before because from the outside it looks like a hotel, but inside is all divided up into lots of separate apartments which I thought was such a fab idea. We stayed in a lovely apartment room that had a kitchen and luckily enough we had two outdoor baths, which I must say were just amazing, especially at night. it was like having a hot tub on the terrace. It was just lovely.


We stayed for a week around 5 days and spent the first night of our holiday in Exeter which was also lovely and turns out Exeter is now one of my new favourite places. We had some lovely cocktails and food on that first evening which were some of the best cocktails I have ever had. 


We went on some little days out to some Devonshire villages, including Ilfracrombe which was lovely and we had one of the best ice creams we have ever had here. We also had a classic fish and chips and took a walk around the town. We also took a trip to Croyde and walked down the beach which was also so lovely to explore a new place. We also went to woolacombe which was probably my favourite beach, and I am almost certain this beach won an award for the most cleanest beach in Britain. We hired surf boards and the lovely man in the surf hire beach shop right on the entrance of the beach very kindly gave us a free surfboard for me to learn on which just made my day to be honest. We had such a lovely day spent on woolacome beach and it was honestly the most perfect day!


So here are some of the snaps we took on the holiday. I also did make a Devon vlog if you would prefer to watch our adventures, you can watch the video HERE 








I honestly had the most wonderful time away and it was just so lovely and so needed!! I love having some time to unwind and relax with my second family

What I have been wearing into Autumn...

8 Sep 2020

 


Hello everyone,

I am so happy that we are finally heading into some of my favourite months of the year. Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, not only because its my birthday but because I just love the cosy atmosphere, the hot chocolates and the fact that its candle season. And of course I love autumn fashion, because its still not too cold. 

I have been pinning photos on Pinterest boards, and saving lots of fashion posts on Instagram to autumn outfit ideas and I am loving all the new trends that are appearing. I am absolutely loving the neutral tones and colours and of course whites and nudes. I feel like I am going to be spending the majority of autumn in Zara as they have the most perfect neutral basic pieces. 

I have also found so many pieces I already had in my wardrobe that I had loved wearing last year that I know I will love wearing this year too. Including this Femme luxe white shirt that I hadn't actually worn before, (here is the link to a similar one as I couldn't find the femme luxe link)but thought it would look perfect with some chunky trainers and my Abbott Lyon nude bag.

Another neutral outfit I have been loving recently is my Pleated cropped culottes with a white top and either chunky trainers or my white slider sandals. I feel like this colour looks so nice with white and can honestly go with any colour too. 

I can't wait to start wearing more and more autumnal outfits and seeing what is out there to wear. I have seen so much inspiration from instagram and Pinterest and I can't wait to try out all the new trends. 





What will you be wearing this Autumn?
