Sea air and colourful thoughts

All I seem to be doing is writing notes about new ideas and thoughts swimming around in my head, plus drinking lots of tea and coffee. And using my new Lion King mug, which I found in a charity shop. Mega win.
Also colourful trips to the sea always make me smile. Waking up early and grabbing my pens and notebooks, all walking down to the seafront is my perfect start to the day. Walking along with the bright blue skies and the forgives fresh sea air, seagulls squawking, with music playing in my ears.
Creative meetings with homemade carrot cake are always a good idea. Plus friends with beautiful homes makes me dream for my perfect little place. Plus cutie little frenchies running around the house making me laugh with their cute little crazy faces. I'm also dreaming of my own little pug, to take on trips and have snuggles with.
More and more recently I have been looking at colour. Noticing it more and more when I am out and about. I feel like my senses are always searching for bright fresh colours. I hope this will be reflecting in my work, but I'm happy if it's just showing in my life at the moment. Life is good, and happiness should be enjoyed.

May's Crafternoon

Last weekend I went to my gorgeous gal pal Charis' monthly Crafternoon. This was afternoon tea themed, which was just perfect. The table was decorated with cute teacups and little colourful teas to take home. Plus we had lots of teapots with different teas to try.
We had so many treats to eat! Fruit sticks, cupcakes, tarts and Charis' signature macrons. We had many different teas, and a little bit of fizzy bubbly. Which I enjoyed quite a lot! Oops! It made me giggle and laugh lots. And I'm very happy for the wonderful group of friends I have gained from attending these Crafternoons.
This time we made scented candles in jars, which was super fun. I'm looking forward to next months where we are just going to get together to drink tea and catch up.

Coffee for two?

I love coffee. I love dates. So of course I would be obsessed with coffee dates. I love going for coffee with my boyfriend David. I never used to be a coffee drinker, back in the day I didn't know how to make it. Plus it always seemed so confusing, too many different types?! Where do I start?! But I over came that a long time ago, and I am totally a coffee lover.
I love hunting down amazing places to go have a drink. Hidden in little streets, these independent places are hiding, waiting to be found. Anytime I discover a new place, I must go in and try. Can't wait to get all the iced coffee drinks! Mmmm!

Little adventures with friends

The other day I went for a little adventure with my wonderful friends Charis and Olivia. We decided to go on a trip to Rochester. We jumped in Olivia's car and took a little drive. Lots of catching up and talking about life was done on the way there.
Once we arrived we wandered through the cobbled streets to cute shops. Purchasing lots of gorgeous little pieces. A shop called The Henderson's was open, which I was very happy about. The styling is perfect. So many wonderful vintage treasures with pom pom chains hanging around. I had a giant need to go home and make a pom pom garland!
Wonderful colours and lots of hidden gems. I found the most perfect clown tin that will look perfect on my shelf, so that had to come home with me.
Both Olivia and Charis wanted me to take them to the tearoom is visited last time I was there. So we popped in and had tea and coffee in the sunshine. Those teacups are my favourite, and would keep going back just to use them.
We visited other cute shop, sweet shops, and lots of charity shops! Many good bargains were found. We then went for lunch in the Deaf Cat. The iced tea and coffees there were just amazing, and I will be going back just for those! Plus crazy paintings on the walls is always a good thing.
We had a wonderful day, and ended up spending the rest of the after no with Charis' cute family. I love these kinda days. So relaxed and filled with joy.
