Feel Good Friday

4 September 2015

Sharing some feel good links because at the moment it seems like we all need a bit of positivity. 
We need some stories to reassure us that we should have faith in the human race. 
I hope these links do just that.
Happy Friday friends!

Epic celebrations - this kid is amazing.

So true.  This really puts the refugee crisis into perspective.

Spend more time being not doing.

One of my favourite instagrammer has started a blog.

The mother of all baby announcements.

I don't deal with stress because I don't suffer from stress.

Wow, a heart warming story with the most beautiful images.

Stumbled across this very talented illustrator and his inspiring quotes.


Cotswold Lavendar Farm

2 September 2015

Back in July me and my lovely friend Carmen decided to visit the beautiful Cotswold Lavender farm in Snowshill, the heart of the Cotswolds.  It didn't disappoint and for £2.50 entry you can't go wrong.  It was a warm day with a bit of cloud but the scenery was just beautiful.

It is a quaint set up with a relaxed tea room and a gift shop where you can ogle over all the products they make.  We ended off our day with a delicious piece of quiche served with salad and a cold drink.

We spent a good hour wandering around the fields of lavender and wild flowers, enjoying taking photos, capturing tourists admiring the beauty and loving the peace and quiet.

It was fun to take photos and is a brilliant place to practice photography, testing different settings and capturing the bees, people, scenery and sheep!  A must see if you are exploring the Cotswolds.


The Big Feastival 2015

1 September 2015

A couple of years ago we bought weekend tickets to The Big Feastival and had a fab time - I blogged about it here.  The weather was glorious, the food delicious and the vibe awesome.  I was 5 months pregnant at the time with Jack and it was all in all a lovely weekend.

                                                                                                                                                                    Fast forward two years, I am 7 months pregnant and Jack is roaring around most of the time and we were setting off again to The Big Feastival but this time just for Sunday.  We were lucky enough to be offered free tickets from the lovely people at AEG and ao.com and couldn't pass up the opportunity!

                                                                                                                                                              We only stayed a few hours this time as the weather got pretty horrible and we all got a bit cranky and wet.  But for the few hours we were there it was warm and we had a fun time.  Jack enjoyed seeing some of the animals from Adam Henson's farm park and he thoroughly enjoyed a milkshake from Happy Monkey.  They were an absolute bargain for 2 for £1.  Jack also loved all the balloons and flags and loved running around causing havoc!

                                                                                                                                                          There were loads of food stalls - so much to choose from and so many lovely things to buy too.  I got Jack the sweetest t-shirt from Little Bird by Jools Oliver.

Yay for a happy day!  And thanks again to AEG for the tickets!
