With all this glorious summery weather, I’ve been dying to take a little trip somewhere, escape the big smoke and get some pretty pics for the ‘gram. I’ve actually had this weekend trip to Portsmouth booked off from work for aaaaages, but it would seem that in order to get a weekend off from my pub job, one is required to make a blood oath with the devil and sacrifice their first-born child. Chris’s family are lucky enough to have a little sailing boat, and this was my first trip out on it. The trip ended in disaster (more on that later), but I had a lovely couple of days and I thought I’d share a few pictures from the weekend with you…

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Except, in this case, the ‘extra’ refers to Saint Aymes near Marble Arch tube station, and its drool-inducing pastel coloured 24ct gold unicorn lattes. Within a mere 16hrs of stumbling across this insta-worthy cafe on Instagram, I was stood in its doorway and trying to hold in the squeals. I’m aaaaaall one for splashing over £16 on two coffees if it means I can pose by some pretty flowers and eat an actual piece of gold for the first time. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is not so inclined. However, after he pinged me over a tenner with the transfer reference saying “£10 for one coffee FFS”, I think he secretly enjoyed it.

Not a year goes by where I don’t make a huge cock-up with a box of at-home bleach. It does my nut to see other girls able to bleach their hair at home, not only saving themselves money but also blatantly rubbing their incredible talents right in my face. At least once a year, I decide I CAN bleach my hair at home. *Spoiler* I can't. And then I end up with orange roots. And THEN I book an appointment with my amazing and trusty hairdresser Katy in my Devon hometown, hop on the train and beg for her forgiveness. 

I wandered into Pink Says in Teignmouth with what can only be described as a stunning two-tone orange and blonde bird’s nest. But, no fear, because Katy has fixed many of my home-hairdressing faux pas (I promise I wont do it again!), and she’s always been able to right my wrongs.

I’ve been soooo excited to write this blog post for a couple of months now. I’m actually dying a tiny bit because I’m fiiiinally going to be going on a trip that I’ve been dreaming of going on for years! Chris and I are going to be setting off to explore Europe this summer. And we’ve bought our outward flights! We’ve spent quite a bit of time organising things so far. All the boring number-crunching, hotel-finding and, for me, conducting all-important ‘what food are we gonna eat while we’re away?’ research. Wanna see where we’re off to?

It’s a momentous…moment. I’d like to thank not only my parents, but also Jesus. Finally, after 5 long years of blogging, I can finally say that I’m a fully-fledged blogger because…I OWN ROSE GOLD KITCHENWARE. I’ve been lusting after a new kettle since Chris and I moved into our flat in Blackheath, because our Morphy Richards kettle broke during the move. We were having to precariously balance the sugar caddy on the lever, which made making teas and coffees a bit of a ball ache. 

It was a case of balancing the caddy, wandering off to go to the loo, and then dashing back to the kitchen, pants still down, after hearing the boiling water splashing all over the counter. Chris, being a complete and utter MAN, said that “we didn’t need a new kettle because ours still worked fine”. Well, I say that he’s a cretin, and I deserved a new kettle…and some bits to go with it…
