As I’m writing this, I’m listening to ‘S Club Party’ by S Club 7 – it seems only right as I just spent the weekend with my BFF who is absolutely my partner in crime when it comes to banging out the cheesiest throwback tunes, from Blue to Vengaboys to Steps – we’ve sang, we’ve bopped, we’ve mic dropped. In our rooms, with hairbrushes and copious amounts of cherryade. Ah to be 14 again!
Anyway, I digress. My boyfriend was away, and my best pal had just come back from her hols; que much needed catch-ups and lols aplenty! On Saturday we did what’s become a tradition for us; spending a solid four hours in Starbucks talking the hind legs off a donkey, nursing our frappucinos as long as we can before it looks like we’re just plain old seat-hoggers. Well.
We had a look in some charity shops (*ahem, treasure hunting), OFC ended up in Superdrug making googly eyes at the makeup counters, before embracing the best of the V sunny day, and strolling through the park – where we may have spied the first signs of Spring!
I like to think I didn’t look too crackers squatting down at strange angles to get these pictures. IT WAS WORTH IT. #natureisbae (note: have never been cool enough to say ‘bae’, still not. Also will stop hashtagging immediately.)
Sunday came and I woke up feeling unusually energetic, so suggested that we walk to town. & we did! A good forty minute stretch of the legs and we made it (we’re not the fittest of folks), so decided it’d be completely ok to treat ourselves to a doughnut.
Oh, but not just any doughnut.
DUM DUM’s doughnuts and cronuts. Oh my giddy aunt.
I knew there was a Dum Dum in Brighton, but had no idea there was one near me, so naturally lost my sh*t and dribbled (Not really, but like..y’know). My bff went for a chocolate creme donut, and I couldn’t resist letting them take my cronut virginity, so went for a ‘Nutty Flake’. All the YAAAAASSSS. Though it was a toughie because there was a nutella filled one there too. Decisions decisions. I believe they’re baked not deep-fried, and they’re filled with fresh made-on-the-day cream. GO GET EM.
I ended the day with a very pretty Twilight bathbomb from Lush, because how else!?
Let me know what you got up to, and here’s to a cracking rest of the week!
