Girly Weekend & Doughnuts Galore!

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!

Big kisses,

      Oo where did you volunteer? I’ve actually just applied for a mental health charity that’s helped me, thought it’d be really lovely to give something back! I have never heard of thai bubble tea!! What’s it like? I’ve started peppermint tea this week! Have you tried that? Actually so refreshing! Hope you enjoyed your tacos!! & hope you’re having a fab week! 🙂 xx

      1. That sounds lovely, I need to do something like that. I volunteered at a home makeover event for a veteran and his family with my church 🙂 It was an amazing feeling giving back in a small way. It’s honestly delicious, it’s sweet but not overpowering, the consistency is like a chai tea with ice in it. Peppermint tea, I haven’t! but i’ve heard its good for you, I’ll have to try that next. I currently have jasmine green tea by numi tea and I love it. Thank you! I did 🙂 Hope you are having an amazing week as well.

  6. lovely photos but im jealous of the doughnuts! Charity shops have such good finds these days! It’s great that you can get a little back from helping great causes!

    If you’re interested in Charity shopping, I’ve just written a review on Octavia Foundation, Tooting. Have a read and spread the word on the good work that they do:

    Happy blogging x
