Pretty, cute and delicious life happenings

Saturday, 1 August 2015

It feels like forever since I last blogged. I thought that with the summer holidays coming up, I'd be blogging almost daily but you know how it gets busy and things keep getting put off!! So rather than post a million things, I thought I'd summarise a bit of what's been going on :)

This shop is one of my favourites. In fact, anywhere with this cute, pretty vibe to it gets a yes from me! It sells candles, trinkets and bunting which I am obsessed with!!!! It's called Strickland and Holt and can be found on Yarm Highstreet....if you ever find yourself there..

Speaking of shops I like, Utility sent me this gorgeous tote bag* which is the ideal summer day bag to just chuck everything in. I'm half french so this bag appeals to me in a more personal way as well as being pretty with its candy pink stripes.

This necklace is also something I picked up from Utility. I've had my eye on it for months and eventually caved. A lot of Estella Bartlett's jewellery has the same simple but beautiful look! An appalling photo I know and it really doesn't do it justice but it does deserve a mention!

I am forever eating, thinking or talking about food, so of course this summer has involved an extra load of that! Me and Tom went to a gorgeous cafe in York called the Brew and Brownie. They do all sorts of delicious baked goods. I went for a goats cheese, walnut and fig salad followed by this mouthwatering chocolate and peanut butter torte...So rich but sooooo good. Tom made me share because apparently it'd be too sickly to eat all by yourself but I'm pretty sure I could rise to the challenge..

And you know the animal lover in me, I have spent a lot of the summer cuddling lots of cute animals! Both on and off placements! Aren't they the sweetest?!!

Hopefully I'll have more time to get back into blogging again on a more regular basis!! I can't really take photos on placements which is a bit of a problem but I hope you've liked seeing the little snippets of whats gone on in between! :)


  1. That necklace is so so sweet. Might have to pick myself up one of those! I always say 'I'm going to blog more frequently' but then life gets in the way ALWAYS haha! I spent like a good minute before scrolling past those kitties, they're just adorable!
    Have a fab day sweetie,

  3. You have a really beautiful blog!

  4. That rabbit looks so so so so so adorable and fluffy and can I pet it???????????? Looks like your time off has been really fun though, if I find myself in York, I'm definitely going to Brew &Brownie. (And by 'find myself' I think that's leaning more to... taking a trip to York to go to Brew&Brownie...)
