Please Me

My cat in the picture looks far from pleased so he does need a bit of pleasing! I'm sure I'll cheer him up later with a game or even more to his liking... food! But can you spot the cheeky MAC lippie in-between his fluffy paws! Please Me is a Matte lipstick from MAC and I bought this little beauty whilst away in Norwich. This colour is not out of my comfort zone purely because I wanted another lipstick that was long lasting and that I could wear everyday. This colour made the criteria. Being a pale pink colour and being a MAC lipstick, for me this is a perfect everyday shade and the reputation that MAC has for being highly pigmented and long lasted it just had to be. They are a brand that is more expensive however, with their lipsticks you really get your moneys worth. 

I do tend to go with similar colours but this one is a little bit away from those shades. I'm really happy with this lipstick as it ticks all the boxes that I wanted it for! Do you own this shade? What did you think?

Norwich & More

A few days ago now, me, my mum and her boyfriend went to Norwich. Whilst they stayed there for a week and are still there now, I left after 4 days due to my brother taking the other half of the week so someone was at home with Dad whilst the other was away. This did however mean that I had to take a 7 hour coach journey home back to Bristol but, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be! Personally, I find Norwich such a gorgeous city and even though we stayed in a lovely farm house away from the city centre, the outskirts were even prettier. They had such huge houses where we were staying and of course there was one for sale so we had to have a peak at the price! The farm house we stayed in was still being half renovated from the lady that owned it. Our part slept around 8 people and when the whole house is done the lady reckons it could sleep a massive 16 -18 people! She showed us around the house and showed us what she was doing and I believe its going to look amazing. The house is such a maze and I loved it! The house was also set on a huge amount of land with around 40 horses occupying it as well with a show jumping arena. There were 2 gorgeous foals and funnily are named Frankie and Benny! 

On the first day, we didn't get in til around 3 o'clock so just unpacked and chilled in the house until it was time for some food where we went out to a local pub called The Fox. The food was amazing and I had salmon and asparagus wrapped in filo pastry with creamy cheese and veg. On the second day, we went out to Norwich town centre where I bought loads of things including a new MAC lippie and a Joules dressing gown and then went into Cromer and had a walk around that seaside town. We saw a wedding on the pier and the bride and the bridesmaids looked stunning in their 1940's styled dresses. On the 3rd day, we went into Great Yarmouth and walked around that seaside town. It was safe to say that I really like that beach and area! And on the final day, we could go far as I had to go and catch a coach but, we went to have lunch and went to the Norfolk broads and had a stroll around the shops. I left at around 14.30 on the bus and didn't get home til around 21.10. My god it was so long. Here are just a few pics from my long weekend away...

Have you ever been to the East of England? What do you think?

S/S 2015 Favourite Swimwear

We don't really have much of a summer over here in 'sunny' England we normally just get a week or two that they claim to be a heatwave around May/June and that tends to be it. After that just comes rain, rain and oh even more rain. However, if you are going away on holiday in the upcoming months, or just generally going to a pool in the UK and want to look stunning, this is a post on my favourite swimwear that has come out this season. Personally, I don't wear bikinis but that doesn't stop me from having a gander at all the lovely ones available. These are my personal top 5 but if you see any more that you think should be added, just leave me a comment below as I'd love to see some more!

Afternoon Tea at Tortworth Court

The other day for my mums birthday treat me, my brother and my mum went to Tortworth Court for afternoon tea. This truly amazing place is in Wotton-Under-Edge not far from where we live and has beautiful grounds. The afternoon tea was £16.95 per person and for that price you get an unlimited supply of tea (I stuck to Jasmine Petals and Pearls Green Tea) and all little cakes and finger sandwiches. It doesn't look much but by god does it fill you up! The room where we sat an ate was a little back from the main room for dinners and was filled with books to give a library impression. I'm a person who loves old mansions and history and this place was right up my street. All the old features still remain and was absolutely gorgeous. The food was excellent with a mixture of scones, varieties of finger sandwiches, lemon drizzle cake and many more. We ended up taking home a doggy bag as we couldn't eat it all and was too nice to waste! 

Here are a few snaps from that afternoon...

I would recommend going to at least one afternoon tea session in your lifetime as its just so relaxed, civilised and just generally lush! I would happily go and again even if its to a different place!
