Saying bye to my work friends started with dinner at Vesuvio, an Italian on the water front in Bournemouth. Last time i was there i had a pizza which was delicious but this time i had a lasagne dish. Which didn’t live up to how excited i was or how hungry i was. A little tasteless but their bellinis are lovely. And the lemon cheesecake was a smash hit.

Undressed: Brief History of Underwear.
The V&A host so many exhibitions that I’d like to see. I chatted to mum for about 2 seconds before we booked our train tickets and headed into the capital.
First stop was Harrods where we had brunch in the Godiva Chocolate cafe.
the Godiva Milk Chocolate sin cake with a serving of hot pouring chocolate, a salmon and watercress sandwich. Both incredibly delicious and service was prompt considering we were 2nd through the door.
I love looking at and buying underwear and was so excited to go see the undressed exhibition. Of course we weren’t allowed to take photos, which was a real shame because I would have loved to have shown you some of my favourite pieces.

After we shopped around Liberty and looked at all their christmas Decorations then headed into Carnaby Street for dinner and a little shopping, before heading to the station to go home. We all fell asleep having officially conquered London for the day.
thanks for reading.
If you know knitting you know Rowan, I was lucky enough to be invited along to take photos of the 60th magazine edition and have a talk by Kaffe Fassett, in the rose garden of the Royal National Rose Society.
The celebration and talk was held in a rose garden decorated with the most beautiful quilts. I couldn’t pass the opportunity to have my ootd shots taken infront of them.

Finally the summer is upon us, the sun has finally got his hat on! I’m going to celebrate the weather before it disappears!
After work I headed to Shore road for a little sea, sand and sun. I dug out my pacha cover up that was a random item in a River Island sale covered in amazing colours and a total bargain.
Piled my hair on the top of my head added some flowers and I was beach ready!

Harry Paye day is an annual event held on Poole Quay every year on the 18th June, but I’ve only been this year. You dress up as a pirate and have a laugh with your friends while you raise some money for local charities.
I pulled on my boots and bandana and dashed to meet my friend before everything finished. I made it just in time to watch the last band play and eat an ice-cream.
It’s amazing that you can pull a costume together with a tan belt, lose shirt, knee high boots and a bandana.

I can’t believe it’s June and I’ve only been to 1 BBQ, I love a BBQ. We hosted for some of my mums friends because of the work they did in the town here we live as a thank you.
It rained on and off so my outfit was a poor choice, but it’s super cute and the mesh overlay is my favourite. I threw on my New Look jacket which saved me from the cold.

Thank you for reading, apologies for the gap in posts ( my camera broke!!) Hopefully I can get someone ( hint hint) to take my photos for me.
I’ve had a blue eyeliner revival. I never thought I’d be wearing blue eyeliner over the age of 15 but here I am at 22 rocking some turquoise.
Try this – A little liner goes along way. Don’t over line your eyes or you’ll look more like an extra from Blade Runner then normal human. Keep then lips low key, make your eyes the statement.
Here are all the products I used of my face to create this look.
Stay Matte Powder, Kate Mascara, Stay Matte Foundation, BB Cream – Rimmel
ABC Gum eye shadow – Urban Decay
High Shine lip gloss – no7
brow brush in dark – 2 True Pro

Life notes: I’ve created a short film with some people from college and it’s going up on youtube soon, which is going to me so exciting.
A group of lovely chaps decided to help me with my outfit photos today. I did think they were a little short for storm troopers.
I spent the day at a village fayre, filled with stalls, food and live music. Ofcourse I took some outfit of the day photos on the hay bails at the end.
Have you seen the outfit I wore to the showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, here.

My outfit looked so much better without my Long Tall Sally coat, but I knew that I needed it for walking around Poundbury. English weather is unpredictable to say the least. The last time I came to Poundbury there were half the building there are now, which is super odd.
We stopped into my favourite shop Cherryade
They are ‘purveyors of super lovely things’ which is exactly what the store is filled with. I want everything they have. The framed art and home-wear are my favourites. Find them online here
Trying to hide from the rain we ducked in and out of shops, and looking at all the pretty houses. We found a little cafe around the corner from Yard, called Bramble.
The 70’s shirt is a H&M find that has been on the blog before. I just love the colour and the flowing sleeves. This time I took of the belt as went for a relaxed look.

I headed out to grab a bite with Lucy from Blogger Luce. We sat, ate, chatted and shopped, I just window shopped (nothing caught my attention, shocking I know) I love chatting with Lucy, I can talk about everything with her, but mainly about blogging today.
The first sign of sun and I’m getting my legs out with this dress. I love this dress, an absolute bargain from Primark last year.
My first ever designer bag got a runaround today. I don’t take her out really ever at all, she’s totally damaged but I’ve had her ages and I just love the pattern and the history. Sparkle ballet flats for all the window shopping.
We ate at Cosy Club Bournemouth | First time I went I had a milk shake which really wasn’t that great. This time I had sweet potato fries and patatas bravas. I know I just ordered a plate of potato, what can I say, I love it. There are Cosy Clubs all over the UK.
