Frosty Sunset | OOTD

Last Sunday, my parents decided to take a well earned break from re-decorating the house, and have a trip to a nearby garden centre.

Personally, I'm not that interested in gardening. I like helping the environment, recycling etc. and I also do enjoy attractive & well kept gardens, but actually gardening doesn't really appeal to me. However, this garden centre is not only made up of plants & gardens, oh no, it's also filled with shops, cafe's/restaurants and an ice-cream parlor. Since Christmas is coming (and the geese are getting fat) I was also excited to see the heart warming Xmas products; the garden centre has quite a reputation for it's Christmas...stuff?

I've missed posting my outfits on here and I've officially decided to make this blog into more of a personal style/fashion & lifestyle blog (of course with the odd beauty post here and there), so I realised this was the perfect opportunity to do an OOTD. We'd planned to go at around 3:00 p.m which meant because of the hour going back due to the time of year, we'd arrive just in time to take some photos in the sunset. My Dad and I headed straight to the private gardens (which really aren't that private as it only means you have to pay to get in if you aren't a member) as soon as we arrived. After scouting for some idyllic locations, and thanks to my helpful (and patient) Dad, we got some good photos. Please excuse how I look in some of them, I'm still unsure on how to pose haha.

I know, it's quite a jumble! I thought I'd include some other lifestyle photos that weren't to do with my outfit. Those colourful pictures above are of the Meringue Girls new cookbook, I took the photos as the images included in this book are stunning! If you can, try and have a read; tasty recipes and gorgeous photos ;)

By the way, not long ago my super skinny topman jeans ripped and I'm trying to find a replacement pair, however for the moment I'm having to wear these jeans that were bought a couple of years ago. Thank goodness they still fit but they're not the most flattering of trousers :L Hopefully I'll have some new ones soon (fingers crossed!)

Just as a side note, next week I have even more mock exams (demotivated sigh). I'm absolutely dreading them and am up to my eyeballs in revision and homework. Because of this endless mountain of work, blogging is becoming more and more difficult to fit in. I have no doubt that once my GCSE's are over, I'll find more time for blogging, but right now I need to concentrate on getting the results I need for college. I'm not stopping blogging, but I may have to cut down to posting once a week. I am going to try and post twice a week, but at the moment it looks like it'll be a new post each weekend. I hope you'll all be okay with this and will continue to read my posts and support me :)

Please let me know in the comments what you thought of this post, my outfit, the photos, anything haha :D I'd also love to hear about any tips for exams :)

Thanks for reading!
