Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe...

Hi everyone, I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. I was lucky enough to have a nice visit to my family home in Derbyshire this weekend and there was lots of good food, catching up and enjoying the sunshine and the beautiful views.
Before departing from my home on the Wirral, I went out for a pub lunch because it was such a sunny afternoon and it seemed like a shame to spend it all sitting in the car!
When we did eventually set off, there was a huge delay on the M56 motorway, so you just know that we had to stop for coffee to 'fuel' us for the rest of the long journey ;)
I know that drive-thru Starbucks are a thing in the States, but I have only ever been to one in the the UK that had drive-thru. This is so unfair in my opinion and we definitely need more drive-thru coffee places here!
 I love this kimono so much! 

Simple make up as usual and my trusty Primark aviators. Ok, these are not designer sunglasses but they look chic and they only cost £2 so it does not matter when I lose them or scratch them! I am wearing possibly my favourite lipstick ever, Collection cosmetics in shade 06 'Bubblegum'



 Kimono, top and jeans-Primark.
Sandals-New Look
Bag-Forever 21

Enjoying a nice glass of Tempranillo

For the pub lunch I got the chance to wear my new floral kimono. I paired it with all black (as usual!) and the result was an easy to wear outfit which was ideal for lunch at the pub!
When I got to Derbyshire, I spent the rest of the weekend chatting, eating good food and catching up with my beloved pets :) we got a Chinese take away on Saturday night which has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. If you ask me, traditions which revolve around food are the best kind! 
After dinner, any remaining clouds cleared from the sky and there was a perfect night for star gazing. I saw so many shooting stars and the Milky Way was amazingly clear too. I love star gazing so much, and the skies above my parents farmhouse are ideal because there is hardly any light pollution where they live, which makes for amazing conditions to see the stars. 

 Beef and Ale pie with chips (top of picture) and a Tuna Melt Jacket Potato (bottom of picture) I bet you can guess which was mine as I never seem to order anything but Tuna Jacket Potatoes lately!
The garden at the pub. We managed to enjoy lunch (and a nice bottle of Tempranillo) in the sunshine, despite it threatening to rain at one point! There was a few drops of rain, but then luckily it went back to sunshine. Holla if you understand the perils of summer in the UK! It really is an achievement to eat a meal outside.
Catching up with Minnie, me looking much happier than usual!!  Lol! :)
The Hydrangeas at my parents Farmhouse are in full bloom, I think I need to water mine more....!

What did you all do over the weekend? Remember I read and appreciate every comment and I follow back my followers. 

Until next time :)

  8. Lovely kimono! It's like one of those pieces that look great on a lot of people, but I don't think I'd know how to style one :P I wish it was dark enough where I live to go stargazing!

    Hydrangeas are so pretty! My mom has a lot out in the front garden - I don't seem to have much of a green thumb either haha~

  15. Living in the States for many years, the luxury of drive-thru almost everything is a treat but it can get you to be so spoiled and lazy :)). I will confess i took advantage of it and miss having a Starbucks drive-thru here in Toronto too. Anyway, you look lovely dear. Happy to know you were able to see your loved ones this weekend. That must have been very nice.
