Hello again and happy weekend! I’m finally able to have a breather after what feels like a full on couple of months at work… Catching up with 4 series of Game of Thrones has been the thing that’s kept me going! How amazing is it by the way!? I’ve been completely hooked. But I’m happy to give my little corner of the internet a bit of attention again.
Paul and I took a trip up to Cambridge a little while ago, since neither of us had been in years and it seemed like a nice day out. I’d read up about a few places to go and where to eat (always important), so we had a wander around the shops, Cambridge Satchel being an obvious must, as well as one I’d found through instagram – Homestuff with History. We found Fitzbillies for lunch and you probably know by now that I’m partial to a bit of old school vintage and historical places, so this 1920’s bakery had me at hello. We ended up having a savoury lunch, but next time we visit, I’m trying one of their famous sticky Chelsea Buns!

I know Cambridge is famous for it’s architecture, but it really is beautiful especially the little cobbled streets, the old shops and the University buildings. I’d also quite like to go punting, but I think I’ll suggest to do that with a group of friends later in the summer with a little picnic!
One last stop we made before heading back home was an ice cream from 6 Ice Cream – oh my… my absolute downfall is pistachio and their salted pistachio ice cream was pretty damn amazing!
As for my ‘ootd’ – I bought these dungarees at some point last winter and I’ve got so much wear out of them already. I love a bit of denim and I love how you can dress dungarees up or down. Since it was nice and sunny, I went for my rather colourful and a bit out there floral embellished shoes that I got on a whim from ASOS, but I like to jazz up an outfit, so they fit the bill quite nicely! As for my top, I love the sleeves! Although I have to be careful not to trail them in any food or errr calligraphy ink… ahem…!
It’s the first of May and it’s the first time this year I haven’t been freezing, so I’m going to call it the start of Spring! It’s also the first time in what feels like a long time that I’ve felt like I can breathe… the last 10 or so weeks have been ramping up at work as I have been part of a small team working on an event that we put on at Somerset House last week. All the hard work paid off in the end, but I can safely say I’m more than happy that this weekend is a Bank Holiday so that I have a bit more time to recover!
Today, Paul and I headed off to Turvey House to meet my mum and dad and check out a Classic Car Show. It was a fairly small one compared to some of the others we’ve been to, but it was nice to wander around and catch up with my parents. I did fall in love with a replica of a vintage Raven Argonette Caravan called Betty!

We stopped off for a pub lunch at The Old Mill in Newton Blossomville (a pretty name for a very pretty village) and had one of the best roast dinners I’ve had in a long time! We walked through a Rapeseed Field and it was just so Spring-like we couldn’t resist taking a few snaps.
Last week, during one of my 12 hour days at the event, I had to rush out and buy a new pair of trainers as my feet were killing me! I’ve thoroughly taken to my new pair of comfy Converse and this weekend I can’t seem to take them off. A laid back, comfortable weekend style is what I’m going for at the moment to make everything easier and I’ve also fallen a little bit in love with this simple Satin Bomber Jacket.
All in all it’s been a lovely weekend so far and I’m very happy that the weather seems to be warming up now!
Hope you’re all enjoying your Bank Holiday!
