Hi everybody, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a busy but fun one, I went out for dinner on Friday night to my favourite restaurant, then on Saturday I travelled to Derbyshire to see my family and to attend a barbecue for a family friend who was celebrating his 50th birthday. It was a lovely occasion and I enjoyed it so much. There was drinking, food and fun until 3 in the morning. The man who was turning fifty gave such a touching speech about how much he cherished having everybody he loved in the same room. It brought a tear to my eye and reminded me how much the small things in life matter and how much I need to appreciate what I have every single day.
 On a less thoughtful note, I actually committed a fashion sin and wore the same outfit from my last post to the party, just with the addition of a different pair of shoes! I washed the outfit on Saturday morning and luckily it was dry by the afternoon due to the warm sunshine! The other outfit pictured was what I wore Saturday morning to go grocery shopping. I absolutely love going to the supermarket and stocking up on ingredients for new recipes. I always like to buy fresh flowers too, when I can, as they make me so happy.
Please tell me how you all are and what you are up to. I love to read your comments and I follow back my followers. Big hugs!

Camille xo.

  1. What a fun post, your skirt in the top photos is lovely, I love the hemline of it. The party looked amazing and your driveway is gorgeous. Weird comment I know but it truly is. Sounds like you had a busy/fun weekend though.
