A Late Night Stroll in Bath

Hi Guys! So I've been terrible AGAIN, I've had the most manic month and honestly haven't felt like blogging. I've taken lots of photos with good intentions though, so you're getting lots of posts coming up. I'm scheduling a ton today, so this is no lie!

A couple of months ago (yep see, terrible!) I took my boyfriend away to Bath for the weekend. We don't see each other often so when we do it's lovely to get away and do something new. I fell in love with the city, the things to see and of course, places to eat.

We were told by a local to visit the Roman Baths in the evening, not joining the queues in the day. We headed down all ready for dinner to be greeted by an open door with no queue. It was really quiet inside and so incredible. We even hopped onto a tour at the end and had a brilliant tour guide telling us about the Baths, but for the rest of the time, they supplied radios to tell you about each exhibit as you went around.

I find these things fascinating, but to jazz it up a bit, here's some outfit snaps too.

These striped culottes/trousers are my FAVE. I adore them. I picked them up from Zara and they were an absolute bargain. Definitely staying hung up in my wardrobe ready for next summer (and my cheeky holiday in a couple of weeks!) They do stick to your legs which can get really annoying, but as a whole I love them.

I kept things simple with a matching top, black boots and a leather jacket. I'm pleased I didn't go for anything more heeled then these boots because the floor in the Baths is not even whatsoever, and can be really slippy in places. Tip; wear trainers!

As we visited at night, the sunset about halfway through our visit, allowing us to see the baths in daylight, and all lit up by fires and lighting. It was absolutely incredible and definitely something I would recommend if you're planning on taking a visit!

Aren't the baths so beautiful?! Which is your favourite city in the UK?

Gluten Free Eats - Nosh & Quaff, Birmingham


I love seafood but had never tried Lobster, so when Nosh & Quaff opened in Birmingham it seemed the perfect excuse to try out a new restaurant and experience Lobster for the first time. Boy were we in for a treat!

I ordered my Lobster and sides while my boyfriend had a burger. Accompanied by two Mojitos was my apron, lobster cracker thing and a fancy tool to get the meat out. Bring on the challenge!

An Introduction to Clean Living - Naturally Sassy event with AO Life

Hi all, hope you're all well and loving our typical british summer, boo!

A few weeks ago, when the sun was shining, I attended a Clean Living event hosted by AO Life. I arrived late due to work (oops!) but was welcomed with the most amazing juice followed by Yoga and healthy Gluten Free cooking! 

This Beetroot, Banana and Honey smoothie was amazing. I personally don't like cubes of ice in my smoothie but after a rush from work was loving having this to help me cool down. Definitely a recipe I'm going to try and recreate at home!

Little Red Dress - Date Night

Finally, an outfit post! Unfortunately my move back home has left me without a photographer buddy so these may be more sparse now but I always post my outfits on Instagram. And even despite my best efforts after my 'Where I've Been' post, I'm still struggling to find time to log on and blog. Here's to trying harder! I'm fast approaching my 200th blog post, and as a late celebration for reaching 2000 Instagram followers, I'm going to be hosting a giveaway across here and my social media platforms so keep tuned! 

Possibly one of the best things about my new job - Sample Sales. I picked up this GORGEOUS Topshop dress for a couple of pounds and I'm so in love. I wore it out last night with heels to dress it up, but I think this denim jacket and boot ensemble is a perfect day to day way to wear it. 

My wardrobe is slowly filling with red clothes and I'm loving it.

House of Fraser - AW15 Press Day

Perhaps the perfect time to post this as I'm definitely starting to prepare my AW wardrobe. Far too often I've been caught out heading to work in sandals and arriving in London to a rain cloud (or occasionally, all wrapped up in a leather jacket to the blaring sun). A few months ago, yes I know I've been terrible, I attended the House of Fraser Press Day and was blown away. I love summer fashion, but nothing beats a good old wardrobe of camel, burgundy and grey, or a perfect fur gilet, and House of Fraser certainly has it all.

First off, bags galore. With a combination of designer and lower priced brands, there was definitely something for everyone. I'm a sucker for Michael Kors bags, and have got very close to purchasing a few times when I've accepted that my dream Prada Saffiano is out of my price range. There was a key colour palette of shades of red, from bright vibrant reds to deep burgundies and black. I love so many of the bags in this photo that I need to move on before I do some dangerous shopping.
