A Late Weekly Roundup

Eggs for sale // This is my favourite ring // Gorgeous walk in the forest
Cute vintage junk shop // Fell in love with these jeans again // Drew on teapots
Went on a social media course // Ate lots of noodles // Chased some hens

How can I sum up last week? I don't really know how to...!
Week by week, they just seem to fly by.

It's the weekends I look forward to the most, and I generally dedicate those to spend time with my boyfriend. In fact, this weekend, we had a really lovely time. It goes to show you can have fun without having to spend a penny (which is what we're trying to do at the moment!) 

Saving the pennies is a definite must for both of us. He really needs to find a job once all his uni work has been finished, and I really need to save up in general! We're both really keen on moving on, and it's important for both of us to get a place of our own so we can have a little bit of freedom in our lives! 

Anyway, this weekend we took a lovely walk along his village. I had no idea how beautiful it was! The walk along the woods was stunning, and I definitely want to go back there next weekend! We also noticed a lot of people keep hens in the village! I'm actually a huge fan of hens, and if I had a little freedom, I'd be keeping some by now! But unfortunately, my dad has a strict no animals rule at the moment...! Anyway, my boyfriend seemed to share the same passion, I think they won him over when he started chasing them and saw how funny it was....! So we're definitely looking into buying some hens when we have our own place! And similar to that little free range eggs sign, I hope we'll have something like that up outside our house one day! 
I've even set myself a challenge really. I want to be able to build a chicken coop on a budget! I'm searching for some found materials or stuff that has been given to me in order to build one! Of course, I have plenty of time, so I'm hoping I'll have enough materials!

Anyway, I hope you've all had a very lovely weekend!
I feel a bit out of it at the moment in terms of blogging due to lack of time. I need to get back on it this week with a few projects!



  1. I love that teapot! So very pretty.
    Looking forward to seeing what projects you've got in store :) I ordered a tripod for my iphone yesterday so am hoping I will be able to start doing videos soon! Not too sure what on yet - maybe nail art, crafty bits etc - but need to mix up my blog a bit! xx

    1. Aww thank you :)
      Ooh cute, you should defo make some videos/tutorials! I highly recommend, plus they get addictive when you have the time to do them!

  2. Lovely photos :-) I love hens!! Unfortunately I don't have any outdoor space but a girl can dream! I also feel the same about blogging - I just don't have the time either! Looking forward to reading about your projects :-) x

    1. A girl can always dream :) yes indeed!
      It's a shame about the time, or the lack of it shall I say!

  3. Love all these photos, looks very beautiful where your boyfriend lives, I don't blame you for wanting to spend more time there. I'd love to have hens but our garden isn't big enough, will definitely aim to one day though. My boyfriend's Mum has lots of hens and the hugest coop and enclosure you've ever seen and we're forever getting eggs which is amazing! I bet you could build a brilliant coop! X

    1. Aww that's cute! :) A constant supply of eggs is always a plus!!
      Btw was wondering what you're growing in your garden atm? Want to get into gardening a bit more over the summer! :)
