My Bank Holiday Saturday started in the best way possible, with a beautiful delivery of flowers from luxury Flower Delivery company Appleyard London. I opted for a super quick Next Day Flowers Saturday delivery and they arrived at around 8.30 in the morning, perfect timing so I could get on with the rest of my day. I chose the extra large Strawberry Smoothie bouquet, I couldn't resist the name and the beautiful arrangement of summer white hydrangea, sweet avalanche roses, kimsey germini and white alstroemeria in varying hues of pastel pink. This flower company select only the finest stems and arrange them in the most stunning colour coordinated arrangement. Perfect to Send Flowers as a gift, or like me as a treat to oneself :)

Scenes from Bamburgh Castle, Part 2

 photo b-12_zpsjaxdzotw.jpg
The second part to my trip to Bamburgh Castle, is the inside of the castle. I love looking around old buildings, especially when they have been cared for as well as this. It has some very luxurious details.

OOTD - 23rd May 2015

 photo o-5_zpsvw6hou3y.jpg
One of the essential elements of living with a Capsule Wardrobe is getting to terms with repetition and wearing the same clothes a lot of the time. To be honest, away from this blog (where it seemed un-interesting and pointless to ever wear the same thing twice) I mostly wear the same favourites over and over anyway. As I have mentioned before, I like the idea of a uniform, but mixing the concept up with some interesting separates in lux fabrics. I want to be able to illustrate here how working with the same pieces of clothing can work in everyday life (hence the introduction of a lot more ootd posts). So this particular outfit that I wore yesterday incorporates a lot of the same pieces as you have seen before.

Lunch at The Joiners Arms

 photo ja-9_zpsfxj6p3pm.jpg
We called in at The Joiners Arms in Newton-by-the-Sea on the way back from Bamburgh Castle, for a quick lunch. Like the other bars and restaurants that are part of The Apartment Group, The Joiners Arms has some quirky interior details and good food. A Burger and Chips for my boyfriend and a Cheese Savoury Baguette with Veggie Chips for me. Although situated in the middle of nowhere, just outside of Alnwick in Northumberland, I would definitely recommend if you are out for a drive out in the Northumberland area. And they also have what look to be stunning rooms, if you fancy staying over and making a night of it.
