Dear Dairy: July 2017

 


July....you have been fun! (Well apart from all the rain...August could you bring us some more sunshine please?!) 

I can not quite believe how fast this year is going, the weeks seem to be literally flying past. I got up to quite a few fun things in July. Here are a few of my highlights. 

I went to the Royal Salute Coronation Cup at Guards Polo Club in Windsor which was a great day apart from all the rain. Typical British summer weather, if only we could guarantee sunshine. That aside it was still really good fun. I've grown up going to the horse racing most years since I can remember but I have never been to the Polo before so it was great to experience something a little different. I had my hair done in the morning (which was a real treat as I never get my hair done professionally before I go out!) and got all dressed up for the day ahead. I wore this Pretty Little Things dress which I'm so tempted to get in every colour. I put some pictures up on my Instagram page here so you can see my full outfit there. I've fallen back in love with Instagram recently and started to add a little more lifestyle content of things I've been getting up too. I've also been using Instagram Stories more and more which I think I'm starting to prefer to snapchat. 

This month I've also spent a lot of time with my family and friends which is one of my favourite things to do. My cousins from Cyprus have been over to stay, which has been lovely because I do not get to see them very often. We had a day exploring London and it has been nice to have family nights in playing board games. Something that I do not do often enough at times. 

I've been trying to make the most of my weekends at the moment my hours have increased at my current job in retail and I'm still doing freelance work on the side of that so I'm trying to make the every day off I get. I've spent quite a bit of time in London this month London is a place that will always hold a very special place in my heart! I had a day out in Primrose Hill with my good friend Victoria last week, we went to the Primrose Bakery as it is one that keeps popping up on Instagram and looks amazing and I have to say the food and drinks are just as amazing as the photos look! I went for a pink cupcake and chocolate milkshake! I would highly recommend a visit if your in the area...oh and of course we had a little photoshoot. You can't not when the houses are so beautiful?! As you may of already guessed by now this is where the above photos where taken! 

Another place that I'm loving at the moment is Covent Garden, I feel like this is a great place all year round. But at the moment they have the most stunning flower displays...again somewhere great for pictures. Wondering around Covent Garden is one of my favourite things to do, and it has an excellent buzz and atmosphere, everyone just seems to be so happy! At the moment Covent Garden also has the Magnum Pleasure store, I couldn't resist...I may have had an ice cream at 11am, but it was a Friday so hey ho! This is basically a store where you can design your own magnum, I'm a real kid at heart so I found this super fun. 

 Now August is here, I'm in full holiday preparation and countdown mode...Sunday I will be flying out to Croatia with one of my friends for a girls holiday! I'm super excited. 

Love
Nicole
