Weekend away in Llandudno

This past weekend me and Ash went for a weekend trip to Llandudno. I have been there a few times quite a few years ago and remembered really liking it but Ash had never been. So Friday 13th July we went to Llandudno after work and checked in to the premier inn we were staying at. Unpacked and then rested up for weekend ahead.

Saturday morning we got up and ready and I experienced my first premier inn breakfast it was very good. Then we went into Llandudno. We first went a walk down the pier, before going a ride on the cable car which took you to Great Orme.

Once at Great Orme we did some exploring before coming back down via cable car which was fun. Then going to get a very nice ice cream before heading to the beach for the afternoon. To take advantage of the weather.

After a very nice afternoon relaxing on the beach we went back to hotel to get ready to go out for dinner. We went to a restaurant called Wildwood which was so good it did all of Ash’s favourites so he was very happy. After dinner we went for a walk by the sea front before heading back.

Sunday was the last day, we got up and ready to go and have breakfast which was so good and then packed up and checked out. Then headed back into Llandudno and went around the shops and did some shopping. Then went for a walk down the pier and again by the sea front before heading back.

We stopped for dinner at chiquitos which has become our favourite on the way back.

That concludes our relaxing weekend in sunny Llandudno. I hope you enjoyed.

Summer look book 2018

This year I have really been enjoying trying different styles from what I normal would go for and stepping out of my comfort zone a bit. This has resulted in me loving new things I wouldn’t have usually picked out for my self as I have decided to share them with you.

The first look is this sun dress from Dorothy Perkins I got a few weeks back. I have not got anything like it really in my wardrobe and loved how summery it looked. I have paired it with a little white leather bag I got as a present. I think this dress is perfect for a summers day. The second look is this denim dress I got from Topshop in which a put a white crop top underneath also from Topshop to make it more casual. Again I feel this is great for summer days.This is more of an evening look and I am yes wearing my trusted Joni Topshop jeans in this outfit but I have paired this pretty lace top from Quiz which I love. Then nude heels and a little bag. This is one of my favourite outfits at the moment for going out on a evening. This dress was a great find it was £6 from Primark and I love this colour for summer and well any season really. With this dress I like the length and that it to the knee so more covered but still cool for hot summer days. I paired with it my Michael Kors bag and Dorothy Perkins sandals I got last year and still love.The final outfit consists of this skirt I got recently from Topshop which I paired with this top from H &m that I have had for a while with my Dorothy Perkins tan sandals and a tan bag.

That concludes my summer look book.

I hope you enjoyed.

Summer goals : 2018

We are well into summer now and here in the UK due to this amazing weather we have been having I am feeling very summery. It also made me think of what I want to accomplish this summer, I used to make these lists as a kid on summer holidays so for some fun I made one for this summer.

  1. Spend more time outside enjoying the summer weather. This summer I really want to make the most of the weather and get outside.
  2. Go on summery dates and spend quality time with my boyfriend Ash.
  3. Create fun memories with best friend Eve this summer.
  4. Make the effort to wear cute summer outfits rather than just jeans and t-shirts.
  5. Stay motivated at gym and tone up for up coming holidays.
  6. Plan New York trip for end of summer.
  7. Write more blog posts.
  8. Read more.
  9. Explore new places
  10. Go on picnics

 

Those are the things I want to do this summer, mainly just have fun with my favourite people.

Summer date ideas: Picnic date

This past week in England we have been having a heat wave. I love it when the weather is like this in the summer time for one it means I can wear all the summer clothes in my wardrobe and also it means being outside enjoying the weather.

So this week me and Ash, after work have been switching up our usual date nights and instead been using the picnic blanket I got the previous weekend, which I am glad I did and going a drive somewhere close by and having a mini picnic with cold drinks and snacks.

It has been the perfect way to relax and make the most of the weather after a day in the office.

This has been our current go to for date night for the summer time.

My fitness routine

These past few months I have really enjoyed my little fitness routine that I have at the gym. I have been going to the gym for over 2 years and love it. This is a routine I have been doing lately but I do change it up regularly to keep it interesting.

One thing that motivates me is taking part in some gym classes. My two favourite at the moment are spin and body combat. A typical week in my routine is as follows:

Monday – rest day although I do like to go for a walk after work (weather permitting).

Tuesday – I do a spin class but will do some light cardio before to warm up ready for class. I love this class it is a very positive vibe in the studio and no two classes are the same which is what keeps me going back.

Wednesday – no class and in the gym. I try to balance out classes and just being in the gym on my own. I tend to mix up both cardio and some weights and vary what I do although, what majorly affects the routine is what equipment is available.

Thursday – Body combat class. This is my favourite but toughest work out of the week. I have been doing it for over a year now and it is still challenging every time I do it as the routines constantly change.

Friday – Rest day.

Saturday – Is mainly running on treadmill or a similar cardio day with more toning moves like sit ups.

Sunday – is a mix of cardio and weights again similar to Wednesday but will try and make it differ from Wednesday’s session as much as I can by using different cardio machines and train weights on a different area of body e.g legs one day, arms the other.

 

And that currently is my little fitness routine. Obviously I am not an instructor and that is just what I enjoy doing at the gym. Hope you enjoyed.

Bank Holiday Adventures – Cornwall & Bath

The previous bank holiday weekend Ash and myself decided to take advantage of the 3 day weekend and go on a mini holiday. We booked a cute villa in Padstow in Cornwall due to having longer we decided to go a bit further. We went down on the evening after work on Friday 25th May. It took ages to get there being a bank holiday but we got there eventually and had problem getting in to villa due to not being emailed the code with our confirmation. But luckily we sorted it out and didn’t have to sleep in the car. We then unpacked quickly and went to sleep ready for the next days adventures.

 

Villa

Above it a picture I took of our Villa in Padstow, it was so nice felt like a little house.

On Saturday, our first full day, we went into Padstow to explore around there. I had never been to Padstow before so was excited to have a look around. We walked around the harbour which was one of my favourite parts about Padstow as it was so cute. Then went on a morning walk down the beach and on a nature trial up until lunch time.

Now when in Cornwall you have to try a Cornish pasty, they are so good. After lunch we then walked around the shops in town for the afternoon before heading back to the villa to get ready for dinner. For dinner we went to Rick Steins Cafe, after this past weekend I am a huge fan of his food!

On Sunday, we decided to go into Perranporth which is known for its beach. It is beautiful. We went a walk around the little seaside town and looked in the shops. Had some pizza in a cute pink cafe for lunch. Then we went on the beach to take some photos and have a walk.

After a walk on the beach and taking a ton of photos between us. We then went to Wadebridge to have a look around. We then explored around, Ash liked this town a lot as it was very focused towards cycling there. There was a lot of bike shops and trials to go on. Then back to the Villa to get ready for dinner but we did fit in a watching the first Paddington bear movie. I loved it, it was so funny. For dinner we had fish and chips by the beach. Followed by an evening walk around and watching the sunset. Before going back to watch Paddington 2.

Bank holiday Monday, the last day. I was so sad to leave. We packed up and decided to go to Bath on the way back home as neither of us had been and wanted to fit in another adventure before going home. Now we were only in Bath for a few hours but we both loved it, such a pretty city. I really want to go back and see more.

We went around the town and definitely did not see it all there is so much to see, went in a few shops before carrying on home to see the cats before going out to get some dinner followed by going to the dessert shop to finished off the weekend.

That was our trip to Cornwall, I hope you enjoyed. I loved Padstow so much definitely would go back such a good mix of everything in such a cute little town.

Chester trip day 2 – Sunday 13th May

Day 2.

We got up and ready for breakfast, which was delicious. As we were running early (I wanted food) we went for a morning walk after breakfast around Chester. It was so nice as it was early Sunday morning so was very quiet. We walked around the town and saw the Eastgate clock we also walked some of the walls which is one of the things I loved most about Chester was the walls around the outside of the city.

After our morning walk, we went back to the room to pack up and check out of the hotel. Since it was a lovely sunny day we went to Chester Zoo. This was my favourite zoo when I was a kid it is so big. We actually spent the whole day there as I wanted to see everything.

I also loved the different habitats where they adjust the temperature and the humidity to suit the animals in the habitats and you can walk around. Of course before we left the zoo I had to go into the gift shop and me and Ash both got teddies of our favourite animals we saw, I got a tiger and he got a bear.

On the way home we stopped into Chiquitos, neither of us have been before and we already want to go back it was so good. After a fabulous meal we set of home.

That concludes our weekend any to Chester.

I hope you enjoyed

Chester trip day 1 – Saturday 12th May

Last weekend my boyfriend and I went on a weekend trip to Chester. Neither of us had been before and it is only just over an hour drive away so looked like a perfect choice for a mini break. We drove down mid-day parked up in the city centre had some lunch, which was pizza, whilst we decided what we wanted to do for the rest of the day in Chester and then off we went to explore.

On this trip I really wanted to just walk around and see the city as it was so pretty and I had never been so wanted to see as much as possible in the short time we were there.  After lunch we went to the River Dee for the afternoon to walk around and explore.

We then went to the hotel to check in, we stayed at the Crowne Plaza in the city. I loved its location we were central but about 10 minute’s walk away so was quiet on a night. It was also a very modern looking hotel which I love.

Once we got settled we got ready to go for dinner, for dinner I booked us at table at Miller & Carter my favourite steak house and he had never been. It was amazing as always I had steak and chips followed by an amazing brownie. Ash was very impressed we definitely have a new favourite place.

After dinner we went for drinks in the hotel bar before heading to bed to rest up for the next day.

And that concludes the first day of mine and Ash’s Chester trip.

Harry Potter Primark Haul

This past weekend I went shopping with my bestie and of course we had to pop into Primark. One thing I love about Primark is all of the Harry Potter things they sell in there. So being a Harry Potter fan I had to pick up a few bits.

The first thing I got was this dark grey perfect catch t shirt with a golden snitch on it, I got this as it was quite subtle out of all of the t shirts and loved the dark grey colour as will go with a lot.

This one was an impulse buy as I do like candles, even though it is nearly summer… But I couldn’t not get it as it was so cute, they had a few different ones for the houses but liked this one as would go in my room colour scheme better.

They had a good selection of socks not only for Harry Potter but also Disney and other ones as well, but of course I got Harry Potter ones. It did take me a while to choose before picking these though. As summer is coming I needed more trainer socks and they have three different designs on them.

The final thing I got is my favourite I think, I saw this on Instagram a while a go and have been looking for it ever since, it is the Harry Potter bunting with the houses on it.

That concludes my Harry Potter Primark haul, I hope you enjoyed.

Weekend Adventure: 24th – 25th March

This blog post has been long over due and what prompted me was booking another weekend away the other day.

But back in March me and Ash went on our first weekend away together. We went with a couple of friends and a cute spaniel also. So Saturday 24th March at 6:30 am we set off to Cumbria.

off on an adventure
Ready to go

I had never been before so was for a new adventure. We all stayed in a cute cottage which had a farm on the property so there was cute little lambs about (so cute).

After we got settled in we went to the town closest to us to have breakfast and coffee and plan what we all wanted to do that day. We went on a walk on  a nature reserve (it was very hilly) and then to the lake for a drink. Here is a view from our walk.

Followed by a trip into town for some much needed lunch before splitting off into couples for the rest of the afternoon. Me and Ash went back to the lake for a walk round to explore.

On the evening we all went to the pub and I learned how to play snooker and then we had some dinner before go back to the cottage and calling it a night.

On the Sunday we went to the Keswick, Lake district for the day. On this day I did not feel well at all but we carried on. We went on a boat ride and an explore around the town and of course there was a Peter Rabbit shop there so I needed to go in.

We spent most of the day there before we headed back to the cottage and packed up and went home as we had work the next day.

 

I can not wait for the next weekend away which is actually next weekend!
