Berry Picking

Pick Your Own farms always remind me of being little.

 Hopping into Granny & Grandpa's car, going to the nearest PYO place and picking (and eating) the most delicious and ripe berries I could find. I'd inevitably always wear white and return back to my mum covered in strawberry juice, with a large punnet of berries in my hand and a big smile on my face, but that's all part of the fun right? 

Having missed the chance to go berry picking last Summer, I convinced Henry to come with me a few weeks ago - When it comes to outdoors-y activities Henry's much more likely to be mowing grass, digging holes and getting muddy than delicately picking ripe raspberries, but with a little convincing, he agreed to come.  

We went to Flower Farm in Godstone, the strawberries had all been picked, so we picked some raspberries instead. It's a fun thing to do and you can spend as long or a little as you'd like doing it. Next time I'm going to head to somewhere that has a pick-your-own-anything - Roundstone Farm in Brighton looks pretty epic for all your PYO needs.

Flower Farm's shop is full to bursting with fresh fruits and vegetables, like an explosion of vibrant - and very tasty- colour when you first see it as you walk in. There's also a sweet little cafe for a pot of tea and a slice of cake if the berry picking is just too tiring!

IKEA Haul & Hacks

I love a trip to IKEA. Not afraid to admit it. 
So re-doing my bedroom was the perfect excuse for a trip to eat Swedish meatballs and pick up some new bits for my room. You can see what I picked up in the haul and how I've made some of the furniture a little more exciting and unique. 

Oh and possibly the best part, I've found the cheapest and most amazing sunglasses storage solution... ever.

10 Things {8th August}

Recently I feel like I've been rushed off my feet, but also like I haven't really done much. How that works I'm not entirely sure, but either way it's made me decided that enough is enough and that it's time to start the scary job hunt, for real. So I'm taking step every day towards that, but definitely still finding time to enjoy myself, I've got a really fun week ahead!
(Taken whilst Berry Picking at Flower Farm. Full post coming Friday)

1. I GOT A FIRST! I am absolutely over the moon that I have been awarded a 1st Class Honours in my degree. Hard work (some breakdowns and some partying) really does pay off. 

2. All of the 90's vibes in my new Mom jeans. I've worn them non-stop recently as they've been perfect for the 'in between' weather we've been having recently. I feel like I've just stepped out of series 1 of Friends and I love it. 

3. Rainy August evenings spent on a date night at the cinema with my love. 

4. Summer fruit. All the cherries and strawberries please! 

5. Summer Party Plans. Henry & I are having our annual summer BBQ this weekend. I'm pinning all the recipes, drinks and decoration ideas. 

6. The beautiful bright pink lilies Henry got me to say well done on my degree! (Can someone tell me the mens equivalent of flowers? I need to congratulate him on his incredible mark too!) 

7.  Feeling swishy in my new H&M maxi dress.

8. Crisp, line-dried white bed sheets.

9. Seeing bright red strawberries on the hanging plant I bought my dad for father's day. They are the sweetest strawberries I've ever had.

10. Flicking through Country Living magazine. It's definitely a new favourite read. 

What's made you happy recently? :)
