Day Trip to The Lake District...

Summer brings out my 'au naturel' side haha :)

Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappe to start the day, yum!

Cute Scottie dog opening sign to one of my fave vintage shops, 'Scarlett Ribbon'

Yes we know how much I love my caffeine!

Image isn't very clear, sorry! But these are a few souvenirs I bought from various gift shops

New wall art!

Some of the chocolate goodness I purchased :)

Adorable little Windermere graffiti bag and vintage-style fan I found for £1... bargain!

On the cruise boat, seeing the sights! Had to buy a sun hat on the way it was so hot!

Mansion which has been converted into a 5 star Hotel

Pretty lake land views

The many yachts which are licenced to stay on the lake all year round 

Winding down the day with some much needed refreshment, bought from Booths!

Yesterday was a delightful day! I went on a long overdue trip to one of my all time favourite spots in the UK. There really are some breath-taking scenic places to visit in this country, and Windermere certainly lives up to this! From the idyllic train journey, to the many shops and cafes, the luscious greenery and of course, beautifully-blue Lake Windermere itself; there really is something for everybody.

I packed plenty of remedies to see my through the scorcher of a day we had, as I am all about planning ahead! My list included: sun cream, personal fan, towel, sunglasses, sandwiches, and of course lots of water to keep hydrated!

My favourite part of the trip definitely had to be the wonderful boat cruise across Lake Windermere, as I had only ever seen small parts of it before on previous trips... Just goes to show that you don't need to travel abroad for your holidays in the summertime, we have it all here in Britain :) And for me, a trip to the Lakes was just what the doctor ordered!

I hope you all like my snap shots! There was much more to capture but I wanted to enjoy the day itself, and not just look like a tourist, haha :)

  1. I love you caffeine addiction and the braids in your beautiful hair.

  2. Hey Amber, aaah thank you for your lovely comment! It was a beautiful day out, hope you're enjoying the summer weather too! :) xx

  3. Wow, what beautiful photos! I've been wanting to go to the Lake District for so long, but everytime I've been to England I've stayed only in the south coast, so no chance for me to do a day trip to the Lake District. But hopefully next time I'll be able to go there! I looks lovely! By the way, I’ve just discovered your blog and I really like it. Would you like to follow each other via GFC? Please, let me know!
