Weekly Roundup

Experimenting with some new nail polishes! Barry M Instant Croc Effects + Barry M Metallic nail varnish!

I can now proudly say my bobble hat has indeed been finished! This is what it looks like on! Since then, I've knitted another one but with cables in it (I'm a huge fan of cable knitting!) It still needs a bobble at the top, but when it's completely finished I will take some photographs and also post the pattern up on here!
(I've also been a little obsessed with the jumper I'm wearing in the photograph - I got it for £5 in the Primark sale when I went to visit my bf and I love it!!)

After work on Tuesday night, I went for a lovely catch-up with one of my friends. We went for a lovely meal together and drank some mock-tails (they were incredibly yummy!!) She usually works evenings, and I work mornings, and it's so hard for us to spend time together!!

Thank you also to the lovely Sophie (she posted me some gorgeous goodies which I got on Monday) If you haven't already checked out her blog, please do here, it's so lovely! I love all her handmade goodies!

This place I found yesterday is an absolute gem! I'm hoping to find the time to actually go and have a lovely afternoon tea there this week as we could only stop by for a photograph!! It's so adorable and definitely my kind of place! They also serve tea in vintage teacups and sell them there too! I CANNOT wait! I've been looking for somewhere to go for afternoon tea around here, and now I've found it!
I think I will definitely have to buy a little hand knitted cake as a souvenir!
Oh, and after seeing the cute little knitted tea cosy in the window (I couldn't see the price because the tag was facing the other way) it has now become a challenge to knit myself one....But ideally I should buy the teapot first!

Yesterday was a rather lovely day! After work, me and my dad went for a trip to Penmon in Anglesey to see the lovely lighthouse! I have an obsession with sea related things! It was definitely a lovely and calming place to go after a busy and rather hectic week (I feel as if I haven't had a chance to do anything this week!!) 
After our lovely walk, we went to Beaumaris which is a very beautiful place (I highly recommend a visit if you're around the Anglesey area any time!) It's filled with beautiful cafes, florists, boutiques, the lot! The pastel coloured houses scattered all over Beaumaris are to die for also, I wish I could live in one of those houses one day, probably when I'm old and retired! Ha!

This vintage teapot was a very happy purchase I made yesterday whilst visiting some charity shops in Beaumaris with my dad. I had literally been looking for a really nice vintage teapot for such a long time! I also got a few vintage teacups and tins too which I will probably blog about very very soon!
For my birthday which is coming up very soon, I'm actually thinking of making some cocktails and serving them in my teapots and vintage teacups!
I'm also thinking of blogging about some party decoration ideas on a budget and sharing my birthday photographs with all of you too along with any recipes I can think of!

I hope you've all had a very lovely week, and apologies for the lack of blog posts (it's been really busy and hectic this week for some reason, with very little time to myself!)
This week, I'll be mostly planning my early birthday party (help, I am in desperate need of some ideas!!) Working, and hopefully some more walking and days out with my camera!!
