Good morning! Happy Monday to you all ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought I'd share with you a little outfit I'm thinking of packing for our trip to Bucharest in less than 3 weeks! The weather is supposed to be around 20-25 degrees and I'm very much looking forward to being able to wear shorts and skirts, oh and finger's crossed I build up some kind of tan! I got the bralet from M&S yesterday and think it's going to work so well with a pair of high waisted wide leg trousers but I also think it looks pretty cool worn with double denim, what do you think? I've also been on the hunt for a denim jacket and I took the plunge with this one, which I'm pretty pleased about as there are so many different styles on the market but it had to be oversized and the right shade of denim. I always kick myself for selling my Levi denim jacket because that was just perfect. Finish this look off with a pair of white trainers, a reddy/orange lip to compliment my nail varnish and of course a cool pair of sunnies! I'll probably share with you some more of my outfit ideas before jetting off, have a good day! Love, L.

So, what do you do when your boyfriend is working late and you relied on him for some outfit pictures? Set your iPhone on self timer and plonk yourself next to your plants, haha! And of course, take a mirror selfie ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you like my outfit? I absolutely love the print on the Zara body I picked up a few weeks ago. I was unsure what to wear it with and really would've preferred a pair of wide fit navy trousers for the summer but I think these slim leg trousers from M&S work really well and they're also a good staple piece to have in your wardrobe. I'm loving the whole smart/casual look I'm seeing lately, mixing up formal outfits with a pair of trainers so I'm looking forward to recreating some outfits this Spring.ย Maybe I'll do these trousers 5 ways, would you like to see how I style them? Last night was Becky's hen do at Terrazzo with the work gang! It was so much fun and the food was delicious. I went for the Spanish platter in the end, although there were several other things I could've chosen but you know, I didn't wanna look greedy so I just settled with that... There was a artist on and the vibe was just really lovely but I had work early this morning so it wasn't a wild one, although it could've easily been! Tonight is total chill night, maybe a walk if the weather stays like it is. I love the light just before the sun sets, it's so magical! Then movie, snacks, relax.. Can't wait! Now, time to shower so I will speak to you again soon. Hugs, L.

Hey lovelies! Another lovely day spent with my love. I cherish Sunday's so much, especially when we can lie in together and cook breakfast. This morning I made the most perfect poached eggs, as usual ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then we spent the afternoon at Williamson Park in Lancaster. It has beautiful grounds and a butterfly house, which is like a sauna by the way so if you ever get chance to go make sure you're wearing something you can take off! There were so many butterflies and all very big too! It was hard to get a decent picture of them though because they kept flying away. There were meerkats too and a few other animals but I just wanted to bring the meerkats home, they were so cute and we felt sorry for them just stuck in a cage. It just doesn't feel right seeing animals like that anymore, even though I used to enjoy visiting zoos when I was a child. I also managed to curl my hair myself too! I've never done it before but after seeing it done last week by my hairdresser I think I want to have it like that all the time. I just did it with my cloud 9 hair straighteners, what do you think of it? I feel more girly with it like this! We also went to see our storage unit where we will be begin making furniture, something we have wanted to do for a long time! You can follow us over on our Instagram account here and keep up to date with what we're upto. Speak to you again soon and enjoy the rest of your Sunday, L.

Hey loves! Happy Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚ What a morning we have had! This morning we woke up at 4am to tackle Hellvelyn and watch the sunrise from striding edge.. however that's not exactly what happened. The journey over to Glennridding was terrible, we came across deer, a hare, sheep and badger's all on the road so ended up arriving later than scheduled. I was still hopeful that the fog would clear and the clouds would disperse as soon as we reached the scary bit.. striding edge. It didn't clear so we enjoyed a hot chocolate and a sandwich in the fog and even had a performance from a little stoat, so cute! I had read about a few fatal accidents that have recently happened on striding edge due to fog so we decided not to take any risks and carry on to Red Tarn and venture back down to the car. Eventually the sun came out and we passed several groups of walkers making their way up the mountain. I was a little envious as I really wanted to make it to the top today but never mind, we can always try again soon. The plan for the rest of the day is to chill, watch a movie and maybe have a nap seeing as though we've been up for almost 12 hours already! So I shall speak to you again tomorrow, love L.

7 months since my last hair cut... 7 long months! Just looking at that first picture from earlier today makes me think, 'Jesus! Did I really walk around looking like a scarecrow for that long?!' Seriously though I'm so happy with my cut today. Ben has been my hairdresser since I was 17 and I've had a few different hair dressers in between but I'm always happy with how it looks after visiting him. He's recently moved to a new salon called 'Colman & Colman', a beautiful old Georgian building which sits almost opposite the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. The decor is 100% to my liking, with dark grey walls, 60's wooden flooring, chandeliers and huge antique gold mirrors. It also features a gin cabinet, I mean come on... That's just the icing on the cake, am I right? Anyway.. back to my new do.ย We went for 3-4 inches off which is a heck of a lot even though I said I was never chopping much off again. I was also pretty inspired by Kimmy K's blunt cut she had a few months back so that's exactly what we went for but Ben decided to add a little wave in as he knows I always straighten it, every single day! What do you think? I love it and I think it's perfect for the Spring and Summer months approaching, as well as our trip to Romania next month.. Eeek! Speak again soon, L.

What makes you happy? Lying in on a Sunday morning, watching snow fall, cuddles with your cat, watching the sunset after a beautiful day. Ah, I could name so many thing's that make me happy and they're all priceless. It seems as though the older I get the more I appreciate the smaller thing's in life. Today has been a be-au-tiful day and I spent the majority of it indoors, at work... However, we are planning on tackling a mountain this weekend which I am very excited about as it has been weeks since we've been able to get out in the fresh air, I'm just hoping that the weather stays as lovely as it has been today ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm trying to get Josh to help me with photograph's and here are a couple from last night, haha! Still very shy in front of the camera but I quite like these and can't wait to play around this summer a bit more! Lots of love, L.

Morning loves! Woke up feeling so positive about the week ahead. No more eating crap (lol). Oh and I'm finally getting my hair done tomorrow, cannot wait! I keep changing my mind about what I want to have done.. argh! Oh well, I will post tomorrow and show you what the outcome is. I haven't had it cut since September so right now I can't even bother doing anything with it.ย Yesterday we caught the ferry over to Hawkshead from Bowness. It's an easy way of getting over as the roads are quite tight and pretty windy and I wasn't up for that. It's only ยฃ4.50 per car which I think it pretty reasonable! A nice 10/15 minute ride over Lake Windermere even if it was grey and cloudy! Now I have to go to work, speak again tomorrow. Hugs, L.

What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than eating ice cream? I've been wanting to visit The Little Ice Cream Shop in forever and today we made it happen even though I had to drag Josh out of bed. I chose the 'cheeky cappuccino' with a smarty cone and what ice cream is complete without a flake? It was delicious! Josh went for the most popular flavour 'salted caramel', topped with fudge bits and Nutella sauce which looked awesome but not quite sure how he managed two big scoops... We bought a bath bomb from 'Agnes and Cat', which joins on to The Little Ice Cream Shop. I am excited to use it tonight as I've never used a bath bomb before, even though I've always been tempted to buy one from Lush, I thought it would be better to give something local made a try first. Now we are home and I'm searching for an Air BnB for our weekend in Glasgow and I think I've found the perfect one ๐Ÿ™‚ I'd love to know if you have any recommendations for restaurants in the city because we all know how much I love food... Lots of love, L.

Hey! Finally, an incredibly beautiful day here in Sedbergh. Just what I needed for my day off... doing nothing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha, no that's a total lie, I woke up early and went to the gym with my friend Emma and had another Thai lesson with Angela which I feel is finally sinking in to my brain. I'm learning all about bartering and asking the prices for taxis and thing's like that which is really useful because in Thailand they do charge you more for being a 'farrang', which means Westerner.ย Then my Gran and I went for a short walk and stopped at a local pub for a g&t and for the rest of the day I have eaten, watched television and I de-veined (I think that is what it's called) loads of prawns for Josh because I'm making him tempura prawns! My Mum showed me how to do it, you pull the head off and strip the prawn of it's shell, then with a sharp knife you cut under the 'belly' from top to bottom and same again on the 'spine' of the prawn to remove it's poo etc. It's really stringy and reminds me of the black stuff I sometimes get in my eye after wearing heavy eye make up, haha gross! But he loves them and it's the first time I'm making them so I hope they turn out ok. I even made the tempura batter, domestic goddess in the making ;-)! Love, L.

Ps. I hate my face at the moment - my skin is horrendous & no I don't have chicken pox.

A night out in Leeds would not be complete without a couple of drunk selfies with the Polaroid, am I right? Seriously, this camera lives in my handbag and although its fairly bulky I can't imagine not having it with me to capture these special moments... like doing shots at 11pm, whilst slut dropping to some old school RnB.. proud moment. I still think I'm recovering from the weekend if I'm honest ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm just not made for it anymore! In fact, was I ever? I'm currently looking forward to seeing all of the girls in a couple of weeks time, except Amy who's currently sunning herself in Thailand.. not jealous in the slightest! Life at the moment is mediocre, I'm neither here nor there. Still got a burning desire in my stomach to create something magical but we're working on that, so as time slowly ticks on by I'm going to carry on updating you with my boring life, what I ate for tea (spaghetti bolognese for those who want to know), what I did in the gym and what I did on the weekend and I still believe that my time will come and I'm going to be where I want to be eventually. Now I'm not even sure what the hell I am rambling on about so I'm going to love you and leave you. Speak soon loves, L.

Ever had a Monday that felt this much like a Sunday? I'm glad I had this bank holiday Monday off work because yesterday was a total right off. I think I slept for almost 13 hours and I still didn't want to get out of bed this morning! Today we did a little food shop and went for lunch at The Black Labrador, which was once The Punchbowl in Underbarrow. Ah, the food was so good! We had tempura prawns to start, then I had welsh rarebit and Josh had the philly cheese steak on focaccia with of course, a portion of french fries. Later we joined our friends Hannah, Tucker and Zach for a hot chocolate and a catch up! We were discussing our trip to see The Hunna in May which I am SO excited for! We are planning on staying in Glasgow for a couple of nights, so let me know if you've been to any nice restaurants! My Gran is cooking tea now and I actually feel sick at the smell of it because all I've done these past few days is eat and eat so I'm ready to go back to porridge and salads now, haha! Speak again soon, L.

En route to Dent station, in the middle of nowhere! I was super early for my train and I was the only person at the station. Thankfully there was a waiting room as it was pretty baltic at the highest station in England!

I'm really loving this HUJI app to get this effect for my photos. Will probably get sick of it soon but for now, I like.

I loved all the shop displays but in particular, these hanging plants in the White Company. If I had my own house I'd love to do this in an office or even in the living room, it's so pretty!

Here are some more photos from my mini break away in Leeds with Bethany and her doggy Elvis. I was really surprised how clean and modern the city centre was, I wasn't really sure what to expect but I will most definitely be back for a weekend with Josh for drinks and some shopping! Right now I am watching Marcella although I'm not that into it yet, I need to watch it properly because it does look good. We are going to make nachos with melted cheese, salsa and sour cream soon and put a the OJ Simpson VS the people on because I find it very very interesting. Does anyone know how to stop nachos going soggy in the oven? Love L.
