Greenhouse Botanicals

Beret~Vintage/ Bows~Vintage/ Top~Zara/ Skirt~H&M

Hey there!

It has been a mad old week, rain and shine all at once. My sister and I took a very much needed sibling outing on Sunday and wondered around the Royal Botanic gardens in Kew. I love going there every now and again to remember that London isn't all dull and grey, there is still beauty and greenery when you go searching for it. 

I even matched my outfit to the surroundings and felt very much a part of nature! I must have had this skirt for about 8 years and even though the hem is a mess and threads are coming out of it, my goodness it is still one of my favourites. 

It was a lovely 'Escape to the country' kinda day and we had a right old giggle and ate way too many sandwiches.

Do you have a secret getaway spot?

Lots of love

Painting The Mountains Red

Dress~ H&M/ Bag~Vintage
Hey there June bugs!

So, I have been to Turkey...again, for the third time this year. It really is starting to feel like a second home. This time I have been up in the mountains in Ovacik, at a beautiful hotel named Sahra Su. I would really recommend it, as you have the best of both worlds. Whether you enjoy being amongst the other Brits, laughing away and sunning yourself by the pool; or if you are more like me and enjoy the quieter side, there are plenty of traditional and cultural Turkish villages and magical paths to walk down.
This bright burnt orange/ red dress from H&M really was a god send in that heat. You can probably see from the pictures what a clammy, pale tourist I was. But, nevertheless I had another wonderful time trapsing through the mountains, spotting lizards and turtles and of course gorging myself on the heavenly food. I came back a few days ago with a cheeky tan and a very full belly!

It has been quite hard to adjust and settle back into the busy, rainy race of everyday London life and I am really looking into saving a bit and just running off to a beautiful country to live my days out at the market and the beach; well, one can dream anyway :)

I hope you have all enjoyed the first few weeks of official summer and have lots to look forward to in the coming season.

Lots of love,
