A Day In The Life


On Tuesday 17th February I decided to record a little 'day in the life'. 
I like sharing the places I've been and this time I went to visit fellow blogger and friend: Katie. We had a really relaxed chill day which I really enjoyed. I'd like to record a few more 'day in the life's i the future so let me know what you think.


My Dad drove me in the car and the journey was just under an hour so I listened to Lorde, McFly and Vampire Weekend (I know! What a mixture?). It was a really nice day but so cold so I wore my winter coat from Next


When I got to Katie's we chatted for a short while and played with these blocks. The had words around each side (like a dice) and you line them up to make poems/stories which is awesome. This is what mine turned out to be like - completely random.




We popped out for lunch at The Fat Hippo which is my favourite place ever because they serve the most divine burgers in the country (biased but hey-ho). I got the Texas burger and the chips on the side are just out of this world. It was my second time going and it just gets better overtime, however you do leave without the ability to walk because they're super filling. The restaurant itself is also really lovely. It has funky music, a tranquil atmosphere and gorgeous art work and interior design. The inside is very small with (I'd guess) eleven tables; it makes it very quaint and quirky. 







After lunch we 'tottled along to a modern-vintage style cafe called 1901. It was an old church hall (as Katie educated me) so it had chic high ceilings and the furniture inside was all vintage pieces - as shown by the old leather chairs in the image above. There was items for sale from dog shampoo to art and signs; I just wanted to buy it all. 

The food menu had me swooning although after a big lunch I settled with a lightweight fruit smoothie. I chose Banana and Orange - I couldn't decided whether it was spiced with cinnamon or not but either way it was delicious. 

We chilled in there for around two hours, just chatting and being typical bloggers with our DSLR's. 

I had lots of fun during the day to the point where I nearly dozed off in my relaxing bubble bath in the evening. I've recently been loving the Imperial Leather: Sea Of Tranquility Bath Cream

So that was my day and, now looking back at the pictures, I really want to eat that burger again, yum!

How has your week been? Let me know and
