One More Off The List!

YAY!

I’m ticking off another of my 101 in 1001 by visiting Portugal for the first time and it’s gorgeous!

While spending some time with my boyfriend and his family, I’m getting some much needed sun time in a villa near by Carvoeiro and it’s such a lovely town.

Arriving on Sunday I’ve done plenty of walking, sunning, eating tapas and definitely consuming my body weight in rosรจ wine (oops) 

The temperature is getting higher each day and my skin getting closer and closer to looking like Larry the Lobster despite plenty of factor 30 + 50 sun creams going on. 

Once I get back home I may do a “5 things you must do in Carvoeiro” post companied with the outfits I wore to each activity. But for now, I’m going to not be blogging and enjoy the rest of my holiday – see ya Sunday, England!

Happy Easter!

It’s Easter Sunday!! Hope everyone has enjoyed drinks and as many Easter eggs as they could handle in one sitting!

I love Easter as it always brings my family together for a slap up meal and a good time, just like Christmas. This year I’ve spent it at my uncle’s in Hexham – which is excellent (or should I say eggsellent) news as he is a fab cook!

After a busy day of attempting to hit a golf ball at the driving range and constant car park space hunting in Tynemouth yesterday with James, I’m happy to have had a comfy and relaxed Sunday with the family. 

I decided a loose fitting top was a must, so I went for my trusty stripy knit top  – anything comfortable and stripy is good in my books! I paired this with some skinny jeans and my hand-me-down Barbour, thanks the the good ol’ British weather!

The meal was cracking – as always – as we had lamb, potato gratin and broad beans followed by as many cakes as we could possibly fit onto the table. We followed our feast with a soggy walk to Hexham’s daffodil fields and back to the house – it’s safe to say I should have remembered to at least bring a hat with me as I got totally soaked!! (So excuse my very wet, very scruffy dry shampooed hair)

But despite the diet being in ruins and catching a sniffle from the rain, I have had a brilliant Easter and I hope everyone else has too!

Hurry Up, Little Miss King!

Yesterday was my cousin’s girlfriend’s baby shower – it’s a mouthful, I know. I got to spend my afternoon gushing over the next Miss King to entire the family while surrounded by adorable baby clothes and playing ‘baby bingo’.

The baby shower took place at her mum’s house (or mam, if you’re from the north east) so the dress code was just casual. I just ended up wearing a plain black top tucked into some jeans but I dressed it up a little with some rose gold jewellery.

And of course I had to throw on my pink coat to match the baby girl theme – also, excuse my horrifically dirty mirror and whatever face it is that I’m making.

After seeing all those cute pink clothes and fluffy blankets, I can’t wait to meet the next little Miss King!

Me and the mammy to be, Laura.
