Down By The Riverside

A note from Joelle... 

♫ ♪ 'Ghost' - Ella Henderson ♫ ♪

Dress - Forever 21: I still loooooove cobalt blue and try to sneak the bold colour into all my summer outfits! This dress was about £12 and just a really comfy maxi!
Kimono - New Look *
Sunglasses - ASOS
Even though I'm a Surrey lass, I seem to always abandon my local green county for the hussle 'n' bussle of London.
London is one of the most exciting places on the planet and that is why I am there practically all the time. But it is time for me to start appreciating the things closer to home.

Today, I spent the day sipping champagne with a good friend and enjoying the local scenery for a bit!
As I have been away for so long in Scotland, I definitely forget how blessed I am to live in such a beautifully, luscious area.
I won't be taking it for granted again!

Champagne Tea At Bill's, Epsom

A note from Joelle... 

♫ ♪'Show Me Heaven' - Maria Mckee ♫ ♪

If there's one thing us Brits get right, it's Afternoon Tea.
I know I am a student and should be saving the pennies, but sometimes you just need to inject a little bit of luxury back into your life, right? So that's what I did at Bill's Epsom.
Hannah and I went for the Champagne tea, but you can opt of normal tea if you prefer.
A selection of hot/cold, sweet/savoury treats came out served on a three storey high tea platter. 
The only slight issue was the size of the tea platter. It's quite tall on the table so we couldn't really see each other when we were talking.
I got a bit too excited for the cakes!
I definitely see myself becoming a regular at Bill's. The tea was fab and the staff look like they were picked straight out of a modelling catalogue (sorry, I had to mention that!)
Have you ever had afternoon tea?

ASOS In Aberdeen

A note from Joelle... 

♫ ♪'Did You Hear the Rain?' - George Ezra ♫ ♪

Dress from HERE
Pumps from HERE
Bag from HERE
Okay, my obsession with ASOS is getting out of control. I would say that 60% of my wardrobe is from that site alone!
I bought this shirt/dress and ballerina pumps last week. Both pieces aren't my normal style, but I just decided to try them out. 
It's a good thing I did because I am now a big fan of Paisley print!

 Yesterday, I flew to Aberdeen and back to sort out my flat for next year and collect some mail. 
After nearly missing my flight (BMT...), breaking a nail and almost passing out from lack of food, I took refuge in a cafe to sort myself out.
Aberdeen is my home away from home, and I have really missed it the past few months! 
However, the city centre was practically deserted due to many travelling to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony and, of course, the summer holidays for the uni students.
After running around the city like a lunatic, I met up with my friend Dede. We had a huge catch up over drinks, Nando's, cocktails and more drinks back at her flat, which was so nice and relaxed.

It was a short and sweet trip and I landed back at home late last night.
