So, other than filling my house and my friends' houses with flowers and throwing out all my old clothes (and by 'throwing' I mean giving away- I would never throw anything away!), I have been feeling a little.. not myself. 
Instead of making or blogging or reading, I have been watching rubbish on television and nibbling on creme eggs. I should be making the most of my creativity... but I haven't. So not to be a distant lady, I have compiled a few snaps and written a brief  'Life Lately' post.
I have been spending evenings with my bestest watching Twilight, visiting lovely tearooms and watching a pair of talented guys play a bit of Classical meets Folk... in a church (new hang out?) whilst sipping wine and tea!
I have started buying pieces for my new wardrobe... including frilly socks- it had to be done!
I have put on a miniature Pre-Birthday/Easter spread for my dear family and loved ones, oh and meeting up with darling family members who I haven't seen in FAR too many years and talking about future babies and such. I have also been admiring the beautiful Spring flowers and pretty blossom trees, still. Gosh, isn't Spring a beauty this year?!
I have been celebrating my Twenty-Seventh birthday with loved ones and getting extremely spoilt and feeling ridiculously loved and lucky. I also spent the majority of my birthday in tears from a terrible hair disaster which basically included two bottles of bleach, one bottle of toner, way too much white and patchy yellow parts, a brush filled with clumps of my poor hair and a trip to the hairdressers. £71 later, a puffy eyed Charlotte and extremely frizzled dry hair, I am a brunette... again.
Not quite the look OR the day I had in mind but hey, I am able to go outside without a hat on.
Sebastian was amazing! He also made me the yummiest waffle ever with homemade chocolate spread and pearly sprinkles. What a babe!
So, after claiming the whole week as my birthday, due to the day's circumstances, I went on my merry way to lunch with a work friend on Tuesday. The weather has been good to me!
I then spent more time with my bestest today, feeding goats and tickling pigs after a lovely cream tea in a sweet glass house. We bought honeycomb, chocolate pigs and ambled around giggling at the chickens, more about that another time.
Tomorrow I am off to spend my birthday money on clothes and Euros, snack on burritos and then Sebastian and I are off to lovely Paris for a long weekend break. See you next week with lots of pictures and lovely stories. Happy Easter lovelies.

  9. You look great as a brunette, don't worry we've all been there with the hideous hair disasters. I once bleached my own hair, which went a rather peculiar shade of green. Thank god for hairdressers! Have a wonderful weekend in Paris! xx
