Under grey skies I'll come undone.

While the rest of the blogosphere, it seems, spent their weekend oohing and aahing over beautiful clothes on beautiful models on beautiful catwalks. I, however, loaded up my leopard print holdall and escaped to the country, as far as possible from London Fashion Week.

(Not on purpose, mind – it just worked out that way!)

Road Trip!

Originally I’d planned this to be a picture post on the gorgeous little village that my oldest friend Jo has moved to – Lavenham, in Suffolk, which I was mostly excited to note is the filming location for Godric’s Hollow AND Hogsmeade! And if you don’t know what those two things are, then I give up. I just give up.

However, the weather this weekend was awful, so we didn’t do very much outside wandering, and I took hardly any photos. We did, however, have a lovely weekend with some of our closest friends, eating scones, drinking wine, painting our nails, experiencing the wonder that is cheese fondue (WOW) and watching A LOT of Sex and the City. I love being a girl.


If you're planning a road trip soon and fancy an Epic Dance Party, I uploaded my playlist to Spotify. It is epic (and very cheesy).

  8. I love Lavenham, it's really close to me and my nan used to live there, I used to love lazy Sundays there when I was little. It used to have an awesome penny sweet shop that sold pink sugar mice :) I'd definitely try to go back again when it's nicer out, it's such a cute little village! xx
