Bath Weekend

Towards the end of June, Glastonbury weekend to be exact, Andy and I took a trip down to Bath for the weekend. The plan was to do a hot air balloon ride on the Friday morning, taking off from Victoria Park, as flying from Bath means your in with a pretty good chance of seeing Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain and, of course, Glastonbury festival all from above. I have to say though, the Glastonbury bit was actually completely by accident but would have been a massive bonus to have seen/heard the festival from a hot air balloon!
Anyway we booked up Bath for a night so we could see a city we haven't been to on top of the balloon flight but it turns out balloon flights are really hit and miss and it was cancelled a few hours beforehand. We went to Bath regardless and did a bit of sight seeing as well as stopping off at some top tourists spots on the way home.

I've vowed to see as many cities in Europe as I possibly can in a short a space of time as possible and for someone who never holidayed outside of the UK up until a couple of years ago, I've managed to make a pretty good start on the list. Two more trips coming up for Summer and I reckon I'll be justified in buying one of those giant cork board maps to document all the places I've been to so far. Next trip is in 21 days and I can't wait to take looooads of polaroids to add to my collection.

Summer Lovin' - July Wishlist

July Wishlist

July Wishlist by casey-byrne featuring Topshop

AH it's been a rough few weeks. I've been suffering with headaches for over 8weeks and they prevent me from doing, well pretty much everything, particularly exercise as they're triggered by movement. Imagine a mild migraine around 10 times a day, bleurgh. So I'm wallowing a fair bit and seriously feeling the effects of not being able to go out for a run or get stuck into my Charlotte G-Shore workout DVD, yeah that's right, I bought it!
I'm on some medication for the headaches which have turned me into a bit of a zombie and, as with most medication, I can't drink on them so I've become a bit of a recluse. Oh, and my hair is falling out as a lovely little side effect.
So all in all it's not shaping up to be the greatest start to summer my end so far. Hopefully this gorgeous weather lasts for a bit longer so I can get out in it and make up for lost time once I'm sorted.
But what better way to brighten all that rubbish than with a bit of online summer clothes shopping!

I've booked a couple of trips away for the end of the summer in the hope that'll I'll be fixed and need to get some summery clothes to take away with me - I can't tell you where I'm going because they're both surprise trips and I wouldn't want to ruin it.

I've been in need of black sandals for such a long time and this New Look pair are exactly what I'm after. The button down denim skirt is a summer must have this year and the white midi skirt is something I have actually just purchased while doing this wish list for my two upcoming trips - fingers crossed it fits!
I hope you've all been enjoying the sun and have lots of exciting things to do over the summer!
