Borough Market

Yesterday we went for a little trip to Borough Market by London Bridge to buy lots of goodies for our supper.
I love the multitude of smells that you're presented with from all over the world as you work you way through the vast under cover market.

I never eat lunch before going as there's so many different foods to sample and so many stalls to buy the most amazing produce from. 

The thing I love about Borough Market the most is that you can try something new every time you go and there really is something for everyone. Normally I can never resist the big hearty farmers beef burgers with a big slab of Stilton and relish, but I had to be good and work up an appetite.  

We spent an afternoon rummaging around all the stalls of vegetables, cheeeeeses, meats, wines and sweets before finally commiting to our purchases. 

This is the stall where Tristan bought my beautiful birthday flowers :)

After truly exhausting the market we made our way back to the flat to make a huge roast and very naughty but delicious cheese board.

The perfect Saturday night in.

Kew Gardens

Yesterday felt like the first day that Spring had finally raised its pretty little head.
When the sun was out it was almost warm well, definitely warmer than it has been.
Tristan and I decided we would go to the Kew Royal Botanical Gardens for the day as neither of us had been before and I absolutely love flowers. I think that stands for most girls though.
I didn't actually know that Kew Gardens was a place in West London, but it's so pretty with cute little flower shops and lovely town houses.

Kew Gardens is 121 acres of beautiful gardens, botanical greenhouses and of course, Kew Palace. You could quite easily spend a full day here getting completely lost, which we definitely did. 

My favourite part was the huge Palm house , which was filled with hundreds of different exotic palms from around the globe.
It really is something. 

There's also a walk way around the top of the glasshouse where you can look down from the tops of the trees, amazing but quite scary. 

I love Daisy's they're such a happy little flower, along with peonies these are my favourite flower.

Kew Gardens would definitely be better to visit in the summer as our cold weather really hasn't helped all of the flowers to bud. There were a fair few naked patches here and there, but hundreds of beautiful daffodils and tropical plants to see so I'd still recommend going.

Mellow Yellow- Easter Weekend Outift

My thinking behind this outfit was 'if I dress like the sun then Spring will come' (that rhymes).
I think it might have worked as my trusty, full proof iPhone weather app tells me it's sunny all weekend, but freezing so I think I'll pair it with 3 layers of thermals.
Off to Kew Gardens we go!!
