What Amanda & David Did: Lazy Afternoon in the Park

Me and my boyfriend are a few of those lucky people that look forward to bank holiday Mondays as we don't have to work. I was pretty excited about this one, because we woke up to a lovely sunny and warm day, which meant we could do something other than eat fast food and watch films. We decided to spend this rare day together, outside at our favourite park having a picnic and feeding the ducks. It was a lovely way to spend our day and I thought I would share my snaps from the day,

This park had a huge lake in the centre, where you can row in rowing boats or try Water Zorbing in the balls. We've been rowing countless times which is always fun but we were feeling lethargic, so we sat on a bench, ate our ice creams and watched the cute little baby Ducks!

We wandered around the park and found a fun fair on the other side, where we played a few games and my boyfriend won me this little guy! I called him Sooty! We walked back to the car, got our picnic and munched on popcorn, yogurt and biscuits.. (we were too lazy to make a proper picnic!).

After stuffing ourselves with snacks, we laid back and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the sunshine. It was a super lovely day and I wish we had bank holidays more often as day dates are my favourite. We finished our evening with dinner at home, followed by an epic game of Monopoly, where my boyfriend put houses and hotels everywhere.. we all ended up bankrupt! We also started watching Breaking Bad! Please tell me it gets better because I really don't like it so far!

What Amanda Wore: Pink Lady

Top: Miss Selfridge
Skirt, Bag & sandals: Primark

I had my fingers crossed today that the weather would stay sunny and dry so me and my boyfriend could venture outside to have a little picnic! Luckily, the weather was perfect today, sunny and warm so we headed out to our favourite park with our picnic, to feed the ducks, and enjoy the lovely weather. It was such a lovely day, we wandered around the park, had an ice cream and even came across a fun fair where my boyfriend won me a cute cuddly dog! While we were there and it was nice and sunny, I got my boyfriend to snap my outfit, as I really loved it today.

I found this skirt in my local Primark and had to have it! I have a little obsession with midi skirts at the moment, I find them a really comfortable length and perfect for Spring. I fell in love with this lovely pastel pink shade and it looks lovely with a plan white cami on top for a simple but girly outfit. I accessorized with my new favourite bag, my Primark satchel which is perfect for popping in your phone and lipstick for days like today! I love this outfit and can't wait to wear it again in summer.. when hopefully it's a little warmer!

Snuggly Sunday Catch up

It's been a very long time, where I've been able to sit down, blog and post it the same day. Since coming back from Edinburgh, I went straight back to work, the days have flown past and I really struggled to keep this little space undated! I have been scheduling posts in all week, but I finally have blogged part one and two with three outfits! Which means all my Edinburgh posts are over and I can resume with 'normal' blogging. I thought today I would share a few snaps from my lazy Easter Sunday at home with my family. We really didn't do anything more than watch films, make dinner, eat dinner and tuck into Easter eggs this evening. My kinda Sunday!

I couldn't find anything Easter appropriate with either bunnies or chicks on, so I decided to dress cosy and comfortable but I also wanted to show off my new pieces. I spotted this H&M jumper in Edinburgh and loved the simplicity of it, I knew it would look simple with my new mint leather skirt from Primark. I would've braved outfit posts but it was raining non stop today, booo!

Easter Sunday in my house, we always have a sit down dinner. Today I was helping my Mum cook the dinner and make the desserts! For dinner, we had chicken and pork, with sage and onion stuffing, roast potatoes, crispy mash, sprouts and yorkshire puddings too! It was soooo tasty! For dessert, me and my Mum made little sponge cakes to go with Strawberries, cream and ice cream... nom!

For Easter, I was given this little guy! How cuuuute is he?! Best Easter Egg ever! I don't want to eat him and I couldn't bring myself to eat him today, instead I munched on my favourite Malteaster bunnies as I was bought lots! As well as a box of chocolate and a pair of socks! I had a lovely Easter with my family today, but I can't wait for tomorrow as I get to have a late Easter with my boyfriend! I've got a little Easter Egg hunt for him planned and a few treats I'm excited for! I hope you all pigged out on chocolate and had a Happy Easter with your families!
