Looking back at these photos makes me feel so happy. They are just a few photos from a couple of weekends in the last 2 months. The weekends have been full of lovely, joyful, and chilled moments, I wish I could relive them all again, at least I can look back at these photos and they will be here to remind me of those gorgeous days.

Weekend by the lake

After getting back from my summer holiday in Portugal with my sister I went up to visit my love, we had a relaxed weekend together looking around the shops, making veggie lasagne, baking banana bread and watching films. We spent the Sunday afternoon by Hornsea Mere lake. There was a lovely little cafe with delicious pistachio and raspberry cake, we then walked off that sweet treat by the lake, looking at the sailboats passing by.

Birthday weekend

Both of our birthdays were at the end of July so we took a few days off work and spent the long weekend together. It was so lovely, warm and sunny, the perfect British summer weather. We went into town to have a browse in the shops and stopped to have a little afternoon tea at The Pudding Stop. We shared a warm peanut butter brownie with salted caramel ice cream, if you're ever in St Albans it is definitely worth visiting, they also do amazing pancakes for brunch. 

On the Saturday we had a picnic in Trent Park and did a little bit of Pokemon hunting. I was quite addicted to it a few weeks ago! The next day we went to Brighton and stayed over night. It was a great place to spend my birthday with my favourite person. I was completely spoilt with gifts, it was one of my favourite birthdays so far. 

The weekend of parties

The next weekend was full of more celebrations, the Friday was one of my best friends son's birthday and house warming party all rolled into one. We ordered pizzas and snacked on sweets and chocolates all night.

Saturday was another one of my best friends had their engagement party. I'm so incredibly happy for them and can't believe that I'm at that age where my friends are getting engaged, buying houses and have children. It's all been so amazing and makes me feel very grown up. That night I had few Toblerone cocktails and giggled loads with some of my oldest friends. I can't wait for more engagement parties and the weddings!

Mother, sister, daughter London & spa weekend 

My sister's birthday was at the beginning of August, we had a weekend full of fun. We went into London for dinner and cocktails before we saw Aladdin in the theatre, it was amazing. Definitely worth seeing if you get the chance. 

The next day, my Mum, sister and I headed to Oxfordshire for a spa trip for our birthdays. I've never been to a spa before and I really enjoyed it. A couple of hours relaxing by the pool with a book before having a facial can do a lot of good. I now need to treat myself to a facial again. It was great to spend some time with my Mum and sister, we rarely get the chance to go out and do things together. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what the end of summer will bring and I'm already getting a little excited for autumn and all the great things ahead.

Last weekend I went down to Brighton with my favourite guy for our birthdays, his birthday is 5 days before mine and a trip to the seaside was the perfect treat for us. We love to go away and have adventures in new places. I have been to Brighton maybe 2 or 3 times before when I was younger but I don't actually remember much, so it was good to come back and have good old look around and do the classic seaside things.

We stayed at the Queens Hotel, a very good location right by the sea, close to the pier, next to The Lanes and a 10 minute walk from the train station. When we arrived in the afternoon we had a walk around through The Lanes, walking past lots of little cafes and shops. Even on a Sunday afternoon it was so lively in the late afternoon, always something to do and see. There were also lots of adorable dogs around every corner. We had a break at Coffee House on Kings Road and had an iced latte and almond croissant, a nice little place to get a caffeine fix. We kept walking through The Lanes with all the multicoloured bunting and colourful buildings, then stopped by to see the Royal Pavilion before heading back to get ready for dinner.

Italian is one of our favourite places to eat, there's always good vegetarian food. We found Edendum on East Street, a lovely little family restaurant. I had the pesto gnocchi, it was so delicious and fresh. Afterwards we went for a little walk by the beach, the lights on the pier looked so dreamy and pretty when the sun is going down and there were lots of bubbles blowing everywhere, I love bubbles. We shared some churros outside the pier, they were so good! The Mesmerist was our next stop for a few drinks, they had a salted caramel espresso martini on the menu and I had to have one, and it was one of the best cocktails I've ever had, highly recommend trying it if you love coffee and salted caramel. Brighton is a seriously good place for food and drinks.

The next day was my birthday, a year older and another day by the seaside. We walked by the beach again before exploring the pier. The fresh sea air, the sound of the water and blue skies was a lovely way to spend the morning. I feel happy when I'm by the water. We tried to win an Eeyore toy in the claw machine but they weren't being nice and letting us win. After we made a stop to get some Brighton rock and a few sweet treats for people at home and then it was time for some ice cream. We went to Boho Gelato, they had some unusual flavours but I stayed safe and had the hazelnut flavour before heading back home.

Spending a day by the seaside turning 24 was pretty great. At some point I'll be back again Brighton, you were awesome.
