Walking in a winter wonderland | 2 snowy days | What I got up to & photos

Beauty

When I went bed the night of the 9th I was wishing that there was snow when I woke up the next morning, and to my utter delight there was! And there was a lot! I was like a little kid on Christmas Day when I looked outside and saw the whole of the garden coated with magical white dust and thus began two days of playing in the snow…

Ofcourse as soon as I woke up I had to go out and take a photo because how could I miss an opportunity! The garden looked so much better covered in white, I braved the icy cold in just a dress and my Ugg boots!

On this day we were supposed to be going into to London to Harrods, but because of the snow we stayed home and this meant we could go out walking in the real winter wonderland!

We walked over to a little cosy pub through the countryside and had a bacon baguette and hot chocolate looking out onto the snow covered fields!

These photos turned out amazing and I am so obsessed with them, it looked and it felt so magical walking amongst the snow covered trees, it was literally like being in Narnia!

That night when I arrived home I received the best email any one could ever receive on a Sunday night, work was cancelled for the next day! That meant my snow adventures could continue for one day more!

The second snow day consisted of a lot more walking and a lot more hot drinks with my friend. We headed out for a walk in the opposite direction to the previous day and got a lot of different photos. The snow had started to melt a lot more and it was a lot harder to walk in. That being said, it didn’t stop me from doing a couple of hand stands and cartwheels which didn’t end up going very smoothly!

And the best thing happened again that evening, another email to say we were closed for another day! The benefits of working in a school!

How do you like to spend your snow days?

A day in Bournemouth 

Travel

Yesterday my best friend and I drove down to Bournemouth for the night to have a nice relaxing weekend away. We set of at 630am and headed down the motorway, we stopped of once and got a lovely McDonalds breakfast. Once we arrived in Bournemouth we found our hotel, which I had never stayed at before. I have come to Bournemouth every year since I was born and I’ve only stayed in a couple of hotels, so it was nice to try out a new one. Basically the whole day was spent trying to take cute Instagram photos. 

Our first stop was ofcourse an ice cream and a walk along the beach. It wasn’t the warmest weather but still warm enough to wear shorts without getting hypothermia. 

If you can’t tell from all these photos, I am hugely inspired by Pinterest and had a board ready full of photos I wanted to recreate.

 There are so many pretty beach huts along the front and they are perfect for a little photo opp! 


We decided to walk along the beach up to Boscombe peir and had another ice cream break and photo break on some rocks.

 

When we arrived at Boscombe Pier we walked to the end and took even more photos, but it was quite windy and cold so we didn’t hang around long. The worst part about Bournemouth is the hill back up to the hotels, so we climbed the hill and walked along the top to the hotel. We then had an hour to relax and recharge before heading out for dinner. As it was my best friends birthday last weekend I decided to get some cakes and biscuits for us to have. 

For dinner the plan was to go to Weatherspoons as its cheap but we ended up in Prezzos as it was a lot closer and our legs were aching by this point. I think in total we walked about 13km which is pretty good! 


And then obviously the day finished with an icecream, this one was mint green and bubblegum flavoured and so pretty! We then hiked up the hill one more time back to the hotel. The plan for the evening was to go in the pool, when we got there we were the only ones so it was really earie and creepy so we didn’t stay in long. We then headed into the sauna for a little bit to dry off before heading back to the room.


I wanted to do a really cute night routine post but I just didn’t have the motivation for it which was disappointing but I did manage to take these pictures so you get the jist of what I used. 

After the shower we had a little pamper with a face mask and a hand scrub and watched the latest epaiode of Orphan Black.
