The Fox Jumper






I love going into supermarkets and having a nosey around the clothing section, I could spend hours on end wandering up and down the isles deliberating on what I can justify buying. I do find myself putting some items of food back on the shelf just because I saw a cute top or dress that I wanted.

There are some great hidden gems on the rails, you might have to search a little bit harder than what you would do in high street stores but it is well worth it, especially when you find an item of clothing like this fox jumper.

I'm not usually one for bold designs but there was something about this jumper that drew me in, everything about it is perfect; the colour, the print of the cute foxes - which both scream Autumn. The shape, quality is just spot on, however I do find that it goes a little bit baggy after a few hours so definitely size down if you are to get one.

I paired it with my suede black skirt and light blue coat from New Look and my knee high boots from Dorothy Perkins.

Glamping Adventure




A few weeks ago, me and my boyfriend went on a few days break to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives and to celebrate our anniversary.  We wanted to do something completely different than what we were used to, so what was better than disappearing for a few days glamping in a Teepee in the middle of the countryside - perfect to unwind and relax.

When we arrived at our destination 'The Camp Hill Estate', we had to drive down a little winding road in-between fields to reach the glamping field, we soon discovered that cars were not allowed near the field making it much more peaceful - but also harder to carry all my bags I had packed from the car to the teepee (we were only there for two nights!)

There was only one Teepee in the field which made it easier to find in the night, it has a small bbq pod, a camp fire made from an old drum from inside a washing machine, a picnic bench and a few lanterns.



Once we stepped inside, we soon discovered that it was like the Tardis, so much bigger than what it looked on the outside. There were two three- quarter length beds, a gas fire and a lot of candles (With extra provided to last your stay - super cute and cosy!!


 The first night proved to be a little disastrous, we failed making the campfire and it took about an hour to get the bbq ready to start cooking food, which meant we ate in the pitch black. That's what happens when you take two people who love their luxuries out of their comfort zone.






However waking up to complete silence, fields, trees and nature made everything worth while. We spent the two days walking around the grounds of the estate, it was absolutely beautiful and perfect to snap some outfit posts which you will see on the blog very soon. One of the mornings we may have stayed in bed until midday reading magazines with the fire on eating chocolate biscuits for breakfast, brunch and lunch.




 
I would definitely recommend this place to anybody, it's the perfect getaway to relax. If you are an adventurous person you can book quad biking, segways or go on their aerial extreme adventure ropes course, or their are plenty surrounding areas to go bike riding or long walks. I'd love to now experience glamping in the summer months with friends and family - maybe that's one thing to add to the calendar for 2016.
