Vesuvio

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.

Harry Paye Day 2016

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.

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.

Summer Dress at Cosy Club

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. DSCN1580

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.

I wore

dress – Primark

shoes – Next

bag – Dooney and Bourke

jewellery – Kate Spade

Jacket – New Look (black)

Cherry Blossom Bath Time

I posted a photo of the Lush Cherry Blossom Bubble Bar on Instagram about two weeks ago and have finally gotten round to using it.

Screen Shot 2016-04-12 at 21.02.16

I was very kindly given it for my birthday along with a chocolate duck and this beautiful cacti card ( i do love a cacti) by the ever so lovely Rianne.

I believe the Cherry Blossom Bubble Bar was released for their Oxford flag ship store, so there isn’t a link but i have tried the flamingo bubble bar and love it.

( I took photos before I used the bar but didn’t check the memory card was set up right so all the footage got lost)

‘crumble one bar under running warm water to …. mounds of luscious indulgent film star bubbles in your bathing release the essential oils.’

I of course didn’t read this before taking my bath and just swished the end in the water as it was filling. It created less bubbles and i’m ok with that.

These little flowers are packed with oils and it smells delicious. It’s not a strong smell (thank god) but it’s definitely close to the smell of parma violets. It’s really a great surprise that i loved this bubble bar as I’m not a fan of parma violets.

Your bath will turn glittery and pink, who doesn’t want that!?DSC_0005

I’m looking forward to my next bath, I need to hot step it over to Lush Oxford Street to see what else they have in store.
