Country life vs City girl

 

Today my parents and I took Matty to a little farm in the countryside not far from where we live. It was so cute for him to see up close chickens, pigs, goats , a tortoise named Victor and all sorts of animals and birds! He loved it, I on the other hand.. well let’s just say I spent most my time taking cover – running from wandering uncaged chickens and huge birds which all seemed to be targeting me. No joke, I did everything to avoid them, and yet they were horrifyingly underfoot with their beady eyes and feathers. I took hold of the stroller and used it as a shield hiding behind it for protection. Matty asked to use the bathroom, a simple request, however as we got close to the WC I saw a MASSIVE peacock in front of the restroom making it impossible to pass, as if it was guarding the door. Drenching from a cold sweat I went on a search for an employee who eventually had to shoo the huge bird away so we could safety use the loo. Matty found it hysterical, I’m not sure if it was the bird or my reaction which amused him more.

Once we made it past the projectile spitting alpacas, the pig enclosure, and the goats, we found ourselves surrounded by pure bliss. No large animals in sight only several connecting quiet lakes covered in Lilly pads and edged with Weeping Willows.We took a long walk around the lakes finishing off at a small playground for Matty. The walk in fresh air made us hungry and we left to search for a country pub. We found a great one and It was love at first sight and the fact that it served the best Nachos I’ve ever had was a big plus!

Back home now and in my Pj’s with a satisfied happy little boy by my side, and this city girl is gradually making room for the country life!

Feeling Fruity

When I saw this dress online It was love at first sight, I just had to have it! I don’t usually wear prints outside of the usual polka-dots, stripes and of course cherries. So citrus was perfect to add to the collection. The ‘Midi’ is also a new thing for me. I’m usually a mini dress kind of girl, but since I recently bought that simple black midi dress from Amazon Find I’ve found myself wanting more! If your a mini kind of girl (like me) then I recommend jumping into the Midi and giving it a go. Who knows you maybe be transformed 😉

I’m wearing this dress casually around the house and barefoot was on the cards for the afternoon! I also tried it with a gold chain belt (seen above) which I adore! This dress would look great styled with some strappy heeled sandals and a little straw bag dontcha think!

A pop of red has to be my fave! Recently I picked up this skirt from & Other Stories. I was quickly sold by its floaty mid length, side slit, and buttons! I wore it with my ‘new in the wardrobe’ silk top by Anthropolgie (which I’m currently obsessed with btw).  This skirt would also be ideal worn with a band tee or a tied white blouse. Stick on a bunch of gold, add a straw bag ta daa – Outfit Goals.

I don’t usually talk about my makeup, but recently I was given some items from Nars , with products to try from their collaboration with Erdem. For my lips I used the Poison Rose  Lip powder pallet . I fell in love at first try!! All the colors in the pallet are so beautiful! Highlighter and foundation are also Nars, I’ve linked everything for you below!

 

Polka-Dot Playsuit

Its June and the weekend,  I’ve got relaxing planned on the agenda. So I’ve slipped into the most comfortable little playsuit by Nasty Gal. This is the first playsuit I’ve worn this year, and since a holiday is probably out the the question I’ve decided to have one here at home 😉

Here’s to a relaxing weekend!

This is my first blog post in my new house, YAY! If you’ve moved before,  then you know it can be super stressful. It doesn’t help when all of us get hit by the flu at the same time! Actually, I move so much, this event should really be second nature by now! We’ve left the busy city of London,  for a quieter Surrey. The main reason why we moved was A for more space, and B so Matty could have a garden to play in. Finding both these things in Notting Hill is slim to non!
For today’s blog post I wanted to introduce you to my new classic loafers, by Prof. In my mind, these are an example of chic & classic. I’ve been looking for a perfect yet affordable loafer for a while now, and so happy I’ve discovered these. Made in Italy with its over-sized gold chain makes these babies super chic! I’ve paired them with a classic strapless black jumpsuit and an over-sized straw hat!  Why have I not had such a classic shoe in my wardrobe until now?!!
