April | Monthly Round Up

I wanted to post a little one of these after realising I hadn't and I love looking back on them, I love the idea of looking back on some of my favourite moments of the month and remembering how much fun I had; what I did, who I met, what I ate. I absolutely adore reading these kind of posts and I'm not sure anyone will bother to read this post on a Sunday morning - but at least I can look back!

Travel: When I moved to London, the thought of perhaps moving out of London had never occurred to me, and until last month I had never considered transferring university, so getting the chance to explore a new city was a total treat - and makes me super excited for the future. From a trip to Thorpe Park at the beginning of the month, to exploring the 'Silver City' with my boyfriend - getting to spend some solid time with my favourite has definitely been fun. We recently made a naughty holiday purchase to Greece in June, oops (but 100% worth it). I also paid a romantic visit to Hilton Newcastle back home with my boyfriend. The month rounded off with a mini-break in Aberdeen - which couldn't have been more relaxing. Here's to a special trip in Kavos in June and maybe another stay-cation too!

Food: Although I certainly consumed less sugar than last month; Ice cream certainly filled a gap in my diet and I'm now officially excited for sunshiny weather. I filled a lot of my month tucking into yummy breakfasts', with The Book Club at the very top - most definitely one of my go-to's for brekkie in London. I also visited Rye and Soda in Aberdeen, had an incredibly lovely afternoon tea at The Great British Cupcakery in Newcastle, sampled cocktails from The Alchemist (totally worth the hype), ate delicious ice cream by the sea and sipped on cocktails at The Botanist back home. I'm vowing that next month will include more ice cream and plenty of martinis (one of which I can definitely guarantee).

People: This month I have realised more than ever how lucky I am to have such a lovely group of friends around me. I'm definitely at an age where we're all moving on but being able to maintain such a special group of friends, family and boyfriend makes me feel super lucky! This month I was able to spend more time with my best friends, catch up with family and watch my sisters fiancé run the London marathon. I've only picked out snaps from Instagram which doesn't include snaps with my incredible people - which I vow to change next month.

Fashion: April was the month of awkward fashion. I mean, the weather is so unpredictable - but things are slightly heating up I suppose! My wardrobe had a pop of colour, my legs were treated to blue jeans and I'm getting there with heels. I've got a post coming up soon on a few of my favourite items - but basically I've been lacking in the fashion game this month. I can't wait for the next few months and all the new sunshiny-ness to perk up my wardrobe.

So yes - that is April in a nutshell! Naturally some things have been skimmed over a bit or not mentioned at all but some things aren't always made for talking about online. I feel so lucky to have special people around me. Anyway, here's to happy, healthy May (with lots of exams and saving up for Greece)!


  1. Lovely post, it's so nice to look back and reflect on the month. You can never have too much ice cream, especially at this time of year!
