  • [AD - Gifted] Stepping into a new week like... 💨 oh hey Monday!

This was taken outside the Guildhall in Northampton, as I was invited by @love_northampton to take part in an interactive tour by Looking Glass Theatre where we dived in deeper to some of Northampton’s Famous Figures 🕍 I found it incredibly interesting and insightful, plus appreciated all of the acting involved!

It was a fun interactive tour and I’ll be writing all about the experience for the @love_northampton website! 👠 I am grateful for the opportunity to expand my love for the town across other channels!

I knew we’d be doing lots of walking during the tour, so this casual white top from @boden_clothing to go with my jeans and a nice scarf was perfect for an afternoon in town 💁🏻‍♀️ and it means I have a nice basic to pair with anything!

What do you love about your town? Let’s share some love for our hometowns for all their unique points ❤️ #NavigatingNorthants #BodenByMe #BodenPartner
  • Brunch goals 🥐 wouldn’t mind waking up to this in bed please!

I’m throwing it back to this gorgeous brunch I had at @cafe_marseille_ where I found myself with some time to go work and thought I’d make the most of it 😍 I love when places give a twist on something classic: a French-styled eggs Benedict in a croissant truly blew my mind!

We might pop out for some today, as I’m off to the Famous Figures tour of Northampton with Looking Glass Theatre, which I have been kindly invited to take part in by @love_northampton which leads me into say I’ll be writing about the experience for their website 🙌🏻 I’m a big fan of interactive theatre and learning more about Northampton, so this will be fab! 😁 have you ever booked for one before?

What would you say your perfect Saturday brunch is? Are you a pancakes type of person 🥞 or do you love Eggs Benedict or Avocado on toast? 🥑 #NavigatingNorthants
  • [AD - Gifted] I have a thing with red telephone boxes... ❤️ happy Friday!

I can’t believe it’s been a whole week since my birthday! 😵 time has been flying so fast and life has been hectic! I absolutely loved our time at @sundialhighgate last week when we enjoyed afternoon tea 🍰 I’m really looking forward to sharing my original Northamptonshire Afternoon Tea Guide with you during the national week!

I have adored wearing this dress from @boden_clothing so much that I want to get it in yellow! It’s incredibly comfy, suits my figure AND IT HAS POCKETS! 🙌🏻 as always, you can grab 20% using my link in my bio - I can’t wait to take it out for more Northamptonshire navigations!

Despite yesterday being lovely, there were a few things that really got me down and irritated me, so I want to start Friday off on a positive note 🥰 so tell me 3 things you’re feeling positive about! #NavigatingNorthants #BodenByMe #BodenPartner.
  • When your nails match your dress and the garnish in your G&T 🍊 talk about accidental branding!

Lots on the to do list today, so little time! But we’re almost at the weekend, so if I can get my stuff all done before then, I’ll be a happy girl 🥰 I’m ready for that gin!

Speaking of gin, tonight I’m off for a gin tasting with @boe_gin at @barencore which I have been kindly given complimentary tickets for 🍸 if drinking lots of gin on a Thursday night isn’t the height of sophistication, then I don’t know what is! Bar Encore is definitely a great place for drinks and I’m still yet to come for tapas!

I’ll be sharing what we get up to with them this evening on my social media so keep your eyes peeled for that 👀 if you were a G&T, what flavour would you be and why? 🍋 #NavigatingNorthants

  • Yesterday I headed down to @sooyogauk to have a taster class at their new studio. I decided to attend the Barre class because I used to do Barre at my old gym and totally loved it. The class was just as amazing as I remembered and if anyone is considering it, I would highly recommend Barre. I left feeling like an elegant ballerina! It’s great for the butt, too (which lets face it, we all want a good butt!) The decor inside @sooyogauk is just as you’d imagine - modern, classy and stylish. They have different rooms for all the different classes and owners @krihanoff and @bencohenstandup even teach their own classes, too! 
After the class I had a smoothie from @soogreens which is a vegan friendly cafe that serves gorgeous food and drink. Next time I go back I’ll definitely be trying the lunch dishes! 😋

My photos here definitely don’t do the place justice - so you’ll have to go and visit for yourself! •

  • Sun Days are for chilling in the garden with your best bud 🐶 these two are so cute together, constantly side by side, I actually can’t get over how adorable is this photo is, I could east them both up! I can’t wait for the day where I get to be a dog mum again 🧡 -

Ps - bear with me and my feed, it went really pink for a while and it makes planning content so difficult because it’s really hard to find photos that work on the grid especially with it being summer and there being so much green everywhere, which drives the perfectionist in me crazy - so we are switching it back to warm tones 🧡 -

How is everyone enjoying the heatwave? -

  • AD - YAY for Shopping ☆

I think it’s safe to say Ava enjoyed our little Matalan trip today. The smiles really says it all

We managed to pick up some gorgeous bits over the last few days. Unfortunately You can’t purchase cute babies from store but you can buy some super cute vests which are perfect in this heat. They come in a pack of two and are only £7
