sundress and sandals

What a beautiful few days we have had recently, i have fully embraced the sunshine and the warm weather. I have not wanted to spend a moment inside. My days haven't been busy which makes a wonderful change. I feel in a constant state of flux like I feel like I should be busy but my body is telling me not to. Guilt is such a bad thing, but i am telling myself it is ok. I have had quite a lot of people enquiring as to why I haven't emailed them back regarding a few things. I have been having a break from emails, so if you are waiting on one from me I promise I will be in contact soon but sometimes I just need to get away from things. 
We had a lovely barbecue over the allotment last night, whilst the sun was setting my favourite time of the day. The barbecue wasn't a total success, it took and hour and half to cook the sausages total fail! but i enjoyed my falafels, peppers and being with my favourite people. I thought I would share with you one of my new dresses from french connection, its perfect in the heat so light and cool. I have also managed to acquire some wonderful tan lines over the last few days, the sun has turned my hair a little ginger...i kind of like it.



  1. Beautiful pictures! The BBQ pic makes me excited for going to the beach tomorrow...
