Plants, Family and Pool Foolery


Hi guys!

I hope you're all well and have been enjoying the summer so far... (if you're from the U.K; how fab is this weather we've been having!?)

In the past week I have done next to nothing. Truth be told, I have wanted to go out, but I can't seem to find anyone to come with me- what with most of my friends off enjoying holidays abroad. Perhaps the most exhilarating part of my week was a trip to my Nan's house. Now to a lot of people, this probably seems exceedingly boring. However, my Nan lives quite a while away and as a result of this I don't often get to see her. Due to the warm summer-time sun, all flowers are out in bloom and the garden looks completely different (allowing me to wander off and explore the jungle like-land to my little hearts content).

My set-up
One of the hens roaming free from the coup (plotting its escape, no doubt)
                                                                                   
One of my favourite parts of Nan's garden (the building on the left t is Grandad's garage/work shop- which FYI I have vowed to covert to a tiny house with a mezzanine ).

A beautiful creation that grows in abundance in the flower beds

After arriving, a group of my family members opted to take a dip in the pool to cool off. Although the water was incredibly tempting, I decided that I'd rather not put myself through the embarrassment of lugging my less-than-toned body into the water in an attempt to "canon ball" like the others. Besides, I'd much rather take myself off and spend a little time with nature... Well, and my camera of course.
I also thought I'd take this time to do a little 'outfit of the day' as they're often called:

Just for reference... T-shirt= H&M, Peg trousers= Asos, Flip flops= Tesco (oh-so-classy), Bangles= Accessorize and Hat= Ripcurl


What have you been up too this week?
