Sangria Sisters|Lifestyle

 

P1180156Recently my sister came to stay and we went to a local tapas restaurant called Pincho and I thought I would share some snaps with you all starting with this yummy jug of sangria which took me back to my recent holiday in Spain.

We stuffed ourselves silly with spicy bbq ribs, salty halloumi cheese, sweet lamb tagine, calamari, meatballs and more. Needless to say my jeans top button was straining by the end of it.

However I managed to cram in some passion fruit cheesecake which was equally as good as the rest of the food.

Sitting outside in this unusually warm September evening was glorious and I hope to squeeze in a few more outside dinners before October hits.

Sorry this wasn’t a full lifestyle post it was kind of a last minute idea to go out for dinner and there was lots of catching up to do.

Take me to Neverland

P1180061

This is the last of the birthday posts I promise.

Dress- ASOS|Shoes – ASOS.

I have always vowed never to grow up, I can be an adult when I need to be but being a child at heart never hurt anyone so for my 22nd birthday party I gathered my bestest girl pals and had a Neverland themed dinner. I was of course the feisty Tinkerbell.

P1180037P1180038

My wonderful mum did the table decorations for me so all I had to do was cover myself with pixie dust and wait for my band of lost boys to show up.

P1180051

This motley crew of lovelies have stuck by my side through so much and I couldn’t be more grateful to them.

P1180054P1180055

We started with two melting pots of Cambert before moving onto Chicken stuffed with Chorizo whilst we sipped on Mojitios.

I had such a lovely birthday which was rounded off by this fabulous cake made by K.

“I don’t know about you but i’m feeling 22”

P1180014

It was my 22nd Birthday yesterday and I thought I would share with you a few snaps from the day. I was at make up training for most of the day which was a pretty awesome way to spend my birthday.

P1180027P1180016

In the evening my parents and I went to a local restaurant for dinner, I love a good Italian and their aperitifs are amazing. The dress is H&M and the shoes are Kurt Geiger but look out for a more detailed outfit post coming soon.

P1180029P1180031

After stuffing ourselves to the brim I climbed into bed with my birthday cake and a cup of tea to watch the British Bake Off! Being 22 isn’t so bad and tomorrow it’s party time.

Wandering at Polesden Lacey

P1160275

Even though the holiday was over we still managed to get out of the city once we were home to still have a little holiday outings.

P116027810549991_10154501291650099_6522868421625213831_oP1160273

Around midday we hopped into the car and drove to Polesden Lacey. It’s a house and gardens in Surrey owned by the National Trust. I used to come here every weekend when I was a little munchkin but it had been years since I had explored the gorgeous house and beautiful gardens.

 P1160253

The house itself was originally owned be renowned party thrower Mrs Greville – sort of like a female Gatsby with less dancing and more dining with the King of England plus his mistress and wife! AWKWARD. Recently even more of the house has been opened to the public and its just amazing to look at each room is completely different.

P1160277P1160257P1160258

The gardens are equally as beautiful contained within stone walls but there is also acres of grounds which are fantastic for more enthusiastic walkers. We didn’t embark on a hike this visit but instead wandered about the roses wishing this was our own back garden.

To finish off the day we indulged in a cream tea from the cafe, I ate to admit I was defeated after one – look how huge they are!

Goodbyes, Rain and Cake|Norfolk Day 3

P1160201

Sadly our week long holiday was cut short due to one of us being sick – don’t worry it wasn’t me so this is the last holiday post, make sure you’ve read day 1 and 2.

P1160186

After leaving these 2 critters in charge of our invalid, mum and I set off for a walk.

P1160189

Which was a complete failure due to it pouring with rain!

P1160193P1160196

Luckily my mum has friends nearby so they popped over for tea and cake whilst we waited for the rain to stop. Just look at the carrot cake-not home made but from Cook!

P1160198

When the rain had finally stopped and just before we left to travel back to London I went for a little walk on my own just to take a few snaps.

P1160206P1160216P1160227

Although it was sad that we had to leave early we have plans to go back in January with the promise of snuggly fires and toasted marshmallows.

However my little adventure didn’t stop just there the vacation became a stay-cation so check back tomorrow for the nest instalment.

Bacon sandwiches,Shopping and Jigsaws|Norfolk Day 2

My mum and I started the next morning off with a good long walk from Blakney to Morston Quay. The sun was shining but there was still a good country breeze! I’m not going to lie I felt a little like Dorothy skipping along the yellow brick road!

P1160154P1160159

The highlight of the walk is tea and a bacon sandwich at the end.

P1160164P1160163

After a spot of lunch we jumped in the car and went off to Burnham Market-where Mr Stephen Fry lives for a spot of shopping. Burnham is a gorgeous little village with some popular shops including Jack Wills and Joules as well as a perfect second hand bookshop and a cute gift shop called Norfolk Living definitely worth a visit.

P1160166

We stumbled upon these crazy scarecrows in the town of Stiffkey!

P1160176P1160179P1160182P1160183

Back home after spending our hard earned pennies it was my turn to cook dinner. I am pretty much a one trick pony in the kitchen so whipped up my hunters pie which always goes down a treat. If you are interested in the recipe let me know and i’ll pop a little recipe post up for you.

P1160185

Our evening finished with a movie, tea and a good old fashioned Jigsaw!

Check back tomorrow for another day.

Grey Seals and a Midnight Fairground|Norfolk Day 1

P1160142

As we do every year my parents and I jumped into the car and drove to Blakeney, Norfolk for a week of bracing walks, scrummy food and cosy nights in. I’ve done two other posts about my time in Blakeney which you can read here and here.

We were staying in a cute little cottage called Grey Seals with the hopes that my sister and her husband would join us later on in the week.

P1160138

Seeing as we hadn’t arrived till the late afternoon we didn’t get to have a walk till the sun had gone down but armed with a torch we set off to the sea front.

P1160135

Yes those are my Miffy Pj’s, the perfect midnight walk outfit.

P1160128P1160131P1160129P1160140

After a lovely little wander round the fairground it was back to the warmth of the cottage for a movie and some popcorn.

Make sure you check back tomorrow for the day 2!
