She's baaaack! My goodness it's been a long time since I last posted, in fact this has been the longest break in between posts I've ever done. Thank you for still visiting though and for some of your messages asking where I've been; it's always nice to be missed! It's been a busy week or so and not to mention I've been pretty unlucky with my days off. Every time I've had a potential day to shoot we've had torrential rain and the other day I had a chance to shoot I just wasn't feeling it. Typical! That's the thing really, I was discussing this with Stephanie yesterday- I just blog for fun like Steph, as a hobby because I love to do it. The moment it stops becoming fun and becomes a chore that's when you have to evaluate why you're doing it. I'm also a perfectionist which is both a blessing and a curse at times. If it's not right and the content isn't how I imagined it I just won't post it. As other bloggers out there what are your thoughts on this?
Well Sunday was one of the most fabulous days I've had in ages. I had planned to meet up with the lovely Stephanie from 'Stephanie Dreams' which I had been looking forward to for ages. I have been corresponding with Stephanie since last summer and we then finally met at the Bath Blogger meet up in December and got along instantly. I tend to go back and visit my family every other month or so, so we planned on meeting in my hometown of Bristol when I next made my way home.
Whenever I get back home to Bristol I always seem to forget how beautiful it really is. There are so many different areas that bring back so many memories for me. If you're a fashion blogger in Bristol you are extremely lucky as it's full of fabulous backdrops. I knew as soon I saw what Stephanie was wearing that morning we should head to the docks. The abandoned train tracks overlooking the water would make for a perfect setting.
I picked this dress up in the ASOS sale in December and when it arrived I did question whether the fit was right on me, as from some angles it did appear quite maternity-ish. Alas, since then I've kinda got over it and it's a lovely little go to dress and I simply adore the toile china style print on it.
After shooting one another's outfits lunch was definitely in order so we headed to Bristol's famous Rocotillo's Diner. Renowned for their incredible milkshakes- used with real Ben and Jerry's ice cream- Rocotillo's is a dream for anyone in the mood for a milkshakey treat; if you pay an extra £1 you can also opt for it to be extra thick! I went for my usual Cookie Dough shake and Steph opted for the Peanut Butter. For food we both went for the american style buttermilk pancakes with bacon, eggs swimming with sickly sweet maple syrup. Just looking back at these photos makes me want to eat that meal all over again! If you're ever in Bristol and love a really good milkshake and authentic american food Rockotillo's really is brilliant.
To finish off the day he headed to Primark to scope out the latest Spring arrivals. Bristol Primark is probably my favourite one to shop in- that and the new Tottenham Court flagship one. Stephanie picked up lots of Disney gear for her Honeymoon and we also bought matching skirts too that we both fell in love with. No doubt you'll see what goodies I picked up soon.
