This is how we do...

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. This was the week that my mum (or ‘the mothership’ as I sometimes nickname her!) swept into my life like a hurricane for a visit. She only gave me one day’s notice of her visit, cue much frantic cleaning of the house on my part. Ladies, you know exactly what I mean, right? You simply cannot let your mum arrive to find the house untidy (not that my house ever is *cough* of course not!) so I was whirling around like a dervish before her arrival.
Once she arrived, we proceeded to do as much as humanly possible within the two days we had together, which with this being me, included eating the most insane amounts of good food possible!
Here is my outfit during part of her visit, I just decided to throw on the same black duster coat from Primark which I have worn a lot lately, with cold knee jeans and the statement necklace I showed you in my last post. Also, I bought this hat in Primark (where else?!) yesterday. It is from their Limited Edition range and I think it is the perfect floppy wool hat for the new season. It only cost £10 and it has a cute gold chain detail on it too. I think it is the perfect item to add a bit of an edge to an otherwise plain outfit. for example, it looks really nice with jeans, a t-shirt and a blazer.











Everything above from Primark. 

Day 1

After her late afternoon arrival, we went on a walk around the Marine Lake in the sunshine and then we headed out for dinner at one of my favourite restaurants, The Wro Lounge.




 We had the set menu which consisted of two delicious courses for the incredible price of £10.07 each. We both began our meal with soup, I can’t recall what flavour it was, but it was rich and delicious, with perfectly crispy croutons. Yum. Next was a Veggie Burger for me and the Cajun Chicken for mum. Both dishes were exquisite.
The meal was accompanied by plenty of gossip and a couple of obligatory glasses of chilled Pinot Grigio. Bliss.

 My lovely Mum.


Mum and daughter time :)



 Delicious soup of the day with croutons.


Cajun Chicken and Veggie Burger 


Day 2

The next day, we decided to go for a picnic on the beach in the afternoon, so we stopped off at the supermarket for supplies and then headed to best place I know for a picnic, Red Rocks in West Kirby, which has an amazing view of Hilbre Island and the sea beyond.


The yummy picnic. 

After the picnic we went for a walk to burn off some of the calories we had just eaten and then later it was time for a dinner of fish and chips at the beach. Yes everyone, more food!



After that , it was time for another walk and then we went home and had a cup of tea in the garden to round off the busy day.


Day 3

It was the day my mum was due to head home, so we went for lunch at the pub ( I had a macaroni burger, mum had scampi) followed by a long walk on the beach before it was time for her to leave. 




The stunning sunset.


We also stopped off to try the ice cream from a place called Tanskey’s in West Kirby. It was delicious and cost just £2.50 for two scoops served in a delicious waffle cone. There were plenty of choices such as vanilla and mint choc chip, and the lady who served us was very kind and friendly,
I had coconut and chocolate scoops and my mum had coconut and strawberry. The ice cream certainly lived up to its delicious reputation and we managed to successfully devour it before it melted. What an achievement! 

 Tanskey's 


 Double the fun ;)


The delicious ice cream.

I had a wonderful time and I did not want her to leave. The most surprising part of the visit was that we managed to avoid going shopping for the duration of her stay!
So that is just about everything that we did, what did you all do this week? Remember I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers.

  2. Nice blog post. I enjoyed reading this one.

    I was most amused at the 'Her Mothership' idea. That is going to stick in my mind now.

    1. Hi Chloe,
      Aw thank you very much for this lovely comment, really sweet of you. I sometimes think my Mum is more into fashion than me!
      I just love to shop at Primark, but sometimes I can't find anything I like in there. Lately there has been plenty of good stock though :)

      I hope you have lovely weekend!

  4. I love your outfit! I can't believe that duster coat is from Primark, it looks such good quality and like it should be from H&M or somewhere instead! Amazing find :)

    It looks like you had an amazing 2 days with her, and I don't blame you for using it as an excuse for eating amazing food, I do the exact same thing! xox

  7. Your first day outfit is amazing. That statement necklace is verging on brilliance. Primark is becoming very fashion savvy on it's part. They've introduced some cool lines for the fall season.

    Lovely post and beautiful mum.
