Yesterday morning, Sols woke me up bright and early on a Sunday to go and get a nice breakfast, which if you know me well enough… ended up being brunch. Instead of getting a traditional full english, I treated myself to an Avocado Brunch – this included ciabatta bread, avocado, tomato, chilli and bacon (if you want.)
After this we went straight into Bournemouth town to do a bit of shopping and spend time in the Christmas market. To end the perfect Sunday, we had biscuits, tea and watch Sherlock homes. What a lovely weekend! – Now time to be extremely productive before I break up for Christmas on the 14th.
Esquires Coffee Bournemouth
Over the past 2 days the weather has been dreadful, there has been rain non-stop and extremely cold. It gets dark very early so it feels as if the day is a lot shorter than it is but today Els, Katie and I went into Bournemouth town to go shopping and instead just went for a coffee. Katie introduced us to the cute, little cafe at the top of the town which has just recently opened. Places like this is what Bournemouth is missing!!
How is everyone enjoying November? A very miserable month. It reminds me of January!! – A no mans land month.
Conto Lounge, Winton
On a rainy, autumn day my friend Katie and I went for a nice coffee (she got a hot chocolate) at the Conto Lounge on Winton high street. I think I spend around £20 a week on a nice coffee, the addiction I getting a bit ridiculous.
So the weather has taken a turn for the worst, it is officially winter and my mood is at an all time low. It is the beginning of my reading week and I am spending it at my boyfriends house. The fact I have the whole week off is stressing me out, I have so much I need to do and feel like I won’t get it all done. Solly also has his exam to become a qualified electrician on Friday. I am staying with my boyfriend all week as my Mum has officially moved out to Saudi Arabia to be with my Dad and I am not going to see either of them until Christmas. My house is so cold and empty.
The weather is definitely affecting everybody’s moods, it is dark by 5PM and I just want the Summer back already.
Happy November everybody! Time to get into the Christmas spirit.
As a late birthday present, my best friend Jess took me for afternoon tea at Living Pretty in Curry Rival. You ask for ‘afternoon tea for two’ and they bring out a little stand with a choice of sandwiches, scones and a piece of cake. By the end we were so full we could not even finish the cake.
This little cafe is in an antique shop, all the furniture placed around the cafe is for sale, including pieces of art, book shelves and they even sell home made jam, which is amazing! After filling up on cakes and completely ruining my diet, Jess and I met a couple more of our friends and spent the evening in spoons.
For my birthday my best friends both got me a bracelet and necklace from Not On The Hight Street, which is an online website which sells different types of jewellery which you can in grave onto. They get delivered with a little note in a jewellery bag which can be straight away given as a present. I thought I should share this website with you all as it is a great for birthdays, anniversaries and any other occasions. For my friend Chloe’s birthday this weekend, I bought her the same one we bought me but in rose gold. It has our monthly birth stone on it as Clo and I are both born in March.
The bottom photographs are taken on my Olympus Pen Lite which I haven’t used for ages but I love it. I am definitely going to start taking photographs on it a lot more, even though the iPhone 7 camera is amazing.
