2016 Highlights

Hey Cats! =^.^= 

Firstly, I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas break and you've been relaxing in the Christmas cheer all week. Today is the last day of 2016 and I just can't believe how much has happened this past year. Within this post I thought I would discuss my highlights of 2016 as I just think so much has happened that I feel so grateful for. I will then be uploading a 2017 resolution post later on in the week so definitely keep an out for that! 


What I Got For Christmas 2016

Hey Cats and Merry Christmas! =^.^= 

I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got everything you hoped for. I definitely had a wonderful Christmas and was very lucky with everything I received too. I'm already missing Christmas and the build up to it, it feels more special at the moment due to having a 7 year old sister as she really gets into the Christmas spirit and excitement. I'm also missing Christmas dinner, I definitely didn't appreciate it as much as I should have when I was eating it only a few days ago. Did everyone else enjoy their Christmas dinner? Today I thought I'd share what I received on the big day. Before I start I would just like to say that in no way am I bragging, I just really enjoy reading these posts and thought I'd write one too! 


Northern Lights - A Lush Review

Hey Cats! =^.^= 

Who's excited for Christmas, only 5 days to go now and I am very excited for Christmas to arrive now. I have all xmas shopping sorted and all I have to do now is wrap everything up! Today I thought I would share with you a Lush review. Before I left Chester on Saturday, I popped into Lush purely to pick up some bath bombs so I could have some relaxing soaks in the bath over the xmas holiday break. I only picked up three bath products but I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you what I thought of the products I picked up. 


Books I Want To Read This December // 2016

Hey Cats! =^.^= 

Who can believe there's only 2 weeks left until Christmas? I honestly can't, I feel like December is just flying by which also means we are closer to a new year - madness! Today I managed to finish all my main xmas shopping and I feel so relieved I've managed to finish my shopping before the real madness of Christmas begins. Today I thought I would share with you what books I would like read and finish this December.



I'm almost half way through Clockwork Angel (link) by Cassandra Clare and I'm really enjoying it. It's slightly different than her main series The Mortal Instruments however it's just as great. I love that it's set in the 1800's and that it's set in England. I love that the places they refer to in this book I am familiar with or somewhat familiar with. This book follows Tessa Gray who seeks refuge with the local Shadowhunters and becomes more invested in their world as the days pass. So far this book is great and I can't wait to see what happens within this book and series


When I was younger Inkheart (link) by Cornelia Funke was adapted in to a movie and I remember adoring the movie so I just thought it was stupid of me to not pick up the book! I found this specific copy at a local car boot sale and for only 50p!! What I didn't realise at the time of buying this book but it's actually a signed copy which makes me super excited  to have it (can you believe this is my first signed book copy ever). If you don't know, this book is about a man who has a special gift where if he reads a book aloud the characters will come out of the book and into the real work. It has such a great story line from what I can remember from the film and I always thought the whole premise of the book was such a great idea, I can't wait to get to this book during December. 



The final book I want to get to this month is Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green. I received this book through a book swap with Charlene over one Charlene McElhinney (link) and I would really like to read this as soon as possible so I can give her my views on the book soon. I don't know too much about this book other than it's about 2 people with the same name who run in to each other and their lives cross and so on. I have read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and wasn't majorly impressed by the whole book - MASSIVE unpopular opinion, I know. However I'm happy to give John Greens work another go with Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

I do hope you enjoyed this post, do you have any books you want to read during the Month of December? Have you read any of the books I have on my December TBR? I hope to read at least two of the books on my list and start the third one at the end of December, I will let you know how I get on in January, 2017!

Until next time cats,

Boohoo CyberMonday Haul

Hey Cats! =^.^= 

How's everyone doing? How's everyones count down to Christmas going? I'm super excited for Christmas now. I'm excited to see my family and to just spend some quality time at home. Today I'm going to be sharing with you what I bought on Boohoo's CyberMonday sale. Overall I think I did pretty well and I now have some gorgeous pieces that I can start to wear over the Christmas season. 

Grace Velvet Cross Over Top - £12 £6 (link
I can't be the only person who is obsessed with velvet at the moment? When I saw this crop top I just had to order it and give it a try. I absolutely love it and I can't wait to wear it soon.

Petite Elisa Square Neck Eyelet Shift Dress - £12 £5 (link
 You can't go wrong with a halter top and this halter top dress is beautiful. When I tried it on, it fit like a glove and I think it's going to be a great contestant for the girls volleyball xmas meal. 

Kayla Plunge Halter Crop Top - £8 £4 (link
I absolutely love this plunge top, I normally don't wear plunge tops but when I saw how cheap this top was I thought why not? and I'm super glad I did buy it as it's such an easy top to wear. It's also great for a night out but it will also be great during the summer too. 

Leah Woven Embroidered Cami - £14 £6 (link
This top is super cute but it also has a sexy vibe which I also love. Again a great top for a night out as well as a great top during the summer too. 

Lucie Long Sleeve Scoop Neck Bodycon Dress - £8 (link)
What I love about this bodycon is that it's so simple yet looks great. I also think the colour is so festive and I can't wait to dress it up and down. 

Cate Tassle Trim Mini Skirt - £12 £5 (link
This is just a simple black mini skirt however as it has the tassle's it makes it look really different and cute. I can't wait to match this up with some cute tops and wear it on a night out!

Lois Pom Detail Clutch Bag - £12 £4 (link
I've been wanting a clutch bag for ages so when I saw this cute clutch for only £4, I just HAD to pick it up and I love it. 

I do hope you liked this little post. I have linked everything under the pictures so if you wanted to grab anything yourself you can! Let me know in the comments what items you love too! I hope to get some outfit of the days up soon, featuring these clothing items. 

Until next time cats,

November Favourites

Hey Cats! =^.^=

Who can believe it's the 2nd of December, I honestly can't. This past month has honestly flown by, I feel like I blinked and then it was December, does anyone else feel like November flew by? Even though it flew by I did end up having a great month, such as joining the UOC trampolining team. I also got to go to a talk at Chester Zoo and it was really good. I learnt a lot about Human and Wildlife Conflict, definitely a subject to learn about it you love everything to do with animals and conservation. Anyway, on with this months favourites.


01. Boohoo CyberMonday Sale 
Originally I was going to refrain myself from buying anything during the Black Friday and CyberMonday sales, however that quickly changed when I saw boohoo's sale. Oh jeez I went a little mad but I just couldn't say no to £3 skirts and £4 clutch bags!! I managed to bag 9 items of their website for only £40, personally I think thats a great bargain. I can't wait to receive my new beautiful clothes and share them with you in a big boohoo haul! Did you buy anything over the past weekend? 

02. The Mortal Instruments 
I'm too obsessed with Cassandra Clare's books at the moment, especially the Mortal Instrument series. I was very skeptical going in as I tried reading them a couple of years back but just didn't get very far with them. I'm now on the forth book and I don't know what I was thinking, how couldn't I of loved this series a few years back!? Its FAB. If you love fantasy and love and mystical creatures such as werewolves and fey then you'll love this series. Don't believe me on how great this series is? Go check it out yourself

03. Trampolining 
I finally plucked up the courage to go to a trampolining training session at my university and I'm glad I did as I now love it. I feel like I'm addicted as I just can't wait to get on those trampolining every week. I'm not very advanced as of yet (I can master the front drop and back drop though) but I plan to keep practising so I can work my way up at competitions. I also think trampolining is great because it really works you, there is never a training session where I leave and don't wake up aching the next day, its great! 

04. Cat Cuddles 
This past weekend I took a trip home due to feeling really homesick and whilst I was home I made sure I got many cat cuddles before I had to travel back to uni. I think the best aspect of having a cat is the cute little cuddles it gives you. Our Theodore jumps up on to you and pushes his face against your's whilst gripping his paws up and down to get comfortable before he collapses on your chest. I can't get enough of these cuddles and I feel very lucky to have such a loving cat who loves me just as much as I love him! 

05. Disney Tsum Tsums 
Collecting Tsum Tsums has been a hobby I have had for well over a year now however I took a little break from collecting them over the last few months until earlier this month that is. If you don't know what Tsum Tsums are, they're small, cute, round, stackable, disney character teddies and I now have a collection of 14. I recently bought Moana from the new Disney's Moana collection, is anyone else super excited to see the film!? and Dumbo and now I just want more. I'm not sure why I love them so much but it's definitely got to be along the lines of how cute they are and how much I love Disney in general!


I hope you enjoyed today's favourites post. Are any of your favourites similar to mine this month? Please tell me I'm not the only one who loves Tsum Tsums. Tell me about some of your favourites down below in the comments I would love to know. 

Until next time cats,

Christmas is Coming

Hey Cats! =^.^= 

Another post with another apology to why I haven't been posting. I don't really have an interesting excuse other than uni is super busy and I just can't seem to find loads of time to take nice pictures and write in depth posts. Lame excuse, I know! However, I do plan to upload a little more regular, I want to get some christmas posts sorted. 

Over the last week my university city (Chester) has become more and more christmasy and I am loving it. It's gotten me really excited for christmas and I love living in a city that decorates their town so perfectly. Two Thursdays ago, Chester threw a light show where there was a parade and the cute german-esce markets were finally open, it was a really sweet night where me and a couple of friends wondered the christmas markets and watched the lights being switched on. I've taken some photo's from the night which I would love to share with you, let me know what you think of them in the comments below as I've been experimenting with different filters and photo settings!








So what do you think of the photos? I'm actually really happy with them. I plan to take a few more photos to show how festive Chester is at the moment, it's just so lovely to walk round. I'm also going to this zoo this Wednesday and hopefully I can capture some festive photos there too (if I do, I will definitely upload a post!). 

This past weekend (and today) I have taken a trip home as I've just been feeling very homesick lately, homesickness really does suck. It's been lovely to come back and it's made me even more excited for christmas as I think it will be more special as I've been away at uni. Do any other students feel the same? Been away for weeks to come home to such a family orientated holiday. 

Anyway, I will leave you now and I'll hopefully have another post up later this week. Keep an eye out on my twitter! @tabithaloves_

Why Are Reading Slumps a Thing?


Hey Cats, how're we all this evening? I'm currently curled up in bed suffering from the worst illness ever. I'm sniffling sweaty mess, gross? I know. This week I have been suffering a lot from homesickness and this illness on top of that is unfortunately not helping the situation. Being home just under 2 weeks ago was lovely and it really showed me how much I appreciate my mum and my boyfriend. They are my rocks and being so far away from them at uni is starting to really take its toll on me, I miss them a hell of a lot. However, I'm trying to pick myself up by keeping myself busy and it is helping. For now though, here's today's post.


Today I wanted to discuss reading slumps and how they've been the bane of my life recently. Due to university maddness I have definitely neglected reading, I just haven't made the effort to make time for it as I have been so preoccupied with university activities. I've also been in the WORST reading slump, I've had to put 2 books down as I just haven't had the motivation or want to read them. I always despise myself when I find myself in a reading slump as I question if it's my fault or if I'm just not into the book I'm currently reading... Does anyone else get into these dilemmas? Please tell me I'm not the only one!

Recently I've been able to shake off the reading slump ('touch wood' I don't want to jinx myself!). I have also told myself that it's not my fault that I'm not in the mood to read, it's okay to not want to read. The book that has got me out of my reading slump is 'City of Glass' by Cassandra Clare. This book is so much better than the first two, I'll be honest but I wasn't overly struck with the first too and was skeptical when starting the third but oh my, I am LOVING this book. So much drama and tension and I love it. I'm also taking part in The Girl Gang Book Club this month and I feel really motivated to finish the book so I can take part in the reading discussion next Tuesday! I definitely recommend taking part in a book club if you're ever in a reading slump as it's so nice to have the discussion at the end.

Overall I hate reading slumps and I'm super glad I've finally pulled myself out of one. Do you have any suggestions for me in the future if I find myself in another one? Also have you read City of Glass?

Love, Tabitha x x 

Favourites, Edition 3

Hey Kittens, how have we all been? I'm currently sat in my university starbucks waiting for my lecture to start! I must admit it's rather dangerous having a student priced starbucks only 2 minutes from my flat as I constantly find myself in there. Today I have my current favourites to share with you and I have quite a few favourites at the moment! 


1. Herbal Teas & Tea 
Normally I am a coffee addict, you can't get me away from the stuff. However, I've feeling rather run down recently and I feel coffee just isn't helping so from recommendations from a friend I've tried a few herbal teas out and surprisingly, I really am enjoying a small herbal tea here and there. So far I have tried lemon & ginger, camomile & honey and finally peppermint, all of which I really like! I've also gotten in the habit to making an traditional english breakfast tea instead of a coffee and I love it, feeling like a classic brit.

2. Snail Mail 
I was approached by a lovely blogger, Charlene McElhinney over on twitter to see if I would like to be involved in the #BeeChat snail mail project and I jumped to the opportunity and I am so glad I did. I absolutely love settling down to write a letter to fellow bloggers! I have also been writing letters to my family and boyfriend from uni and they really love receiving a little thoughtful letter from time to time. Writing letters is a hobby that is dying out and I'm so happy there are people out there who want to bring the hobby back! 

3. Volleyball 
Before university, I would never of thought I would join the Volleyball team but it's become a new found sport I'm really enjoying. It's challenging but so much fun (it also makes your bum look fab - a major benefit to joining I would say!). Anyway, we train twice a week as well organised social which are always a lot of fun. I also find it really mentally stimulating as all I want to do is get better and try harder. If you get the chance to play, I definitely recommend it. 

4. Dance Moms 
I have recently rediscovered Dance Moms and oh wow I am loving it. I just can't stop watching it. Even though the mums and Abby can sometimes drive me crazy, I do equally love the drama. I also love watching the girls dance as I bloody wish I could dance like that, some major talent right there! If you haven't watched Dance Moms and you love a good guilty pleasure watch, then definitely take a look in to watching it! 

5. Chester Zoo Annual Membership 
This is quite a new favourite. As I'm now living in Chester as well as studying Animal Behaviour I only thought it was right to purchase a membership at Chester Zoo. One benefit is that it's only a 15 minute drive away and the bus only costs £4, for a return too. I visited the zoo yesterday and absolutely loved it, it's just such a relaxing atmosphere to walk around the zoo with tea/coffee in hand. 


I hope you enjoyed this post and I do apologise for the awful photo quality but unfortunately my uni room is the darkest room EVER and my lights just don't help at all with the orange tinge. 

I have also decided to potentially hold a Paperchase giveaway when my blog reaches 100 followers on bloglovin! I hope to reach this little milestone and if I do, I'll definitely hold the giveaway as a massive thank you! 

Ta ta for now kittens,

My Current Wishlist #1

#1 

There are so many fashion pieces that I am lusting over at the moment. I honestly want all of the items below to magically appear in my wardrobe ASAP. I soon to purchase a few when I've worked out how much money I can afford to spend (the tough life of being a student eh?) as some of these items I have been lusting over for quite some time. 


a. ASOS KENTUCKY Clear Heel Over The Knee Sock Boots (link) & ASOS CAMERON Knee High Boots (link)
I have been wanting some high knee boots since last Autumn/Winter but I still haven't gotten round to buying any. The two main problems I have is that 1, they can be incredibly expensive and 2, the ones I have tried on never seem to fit me right. They always seem to bag around my legs. Recently I was browsing on ASOS and I came across these two high knee boots and they are both priced at a relatively affordable price. I also love the colours as I feel lots of people go towards the black boots so these colours stood out to me as different. I would love to pair up those berry red high knee boots with some blue jeans. I just think that combo looks chic and sexy. 

b. Petite Blue Turn Up Hem Mom Jeans (link)
Mom jeans have been on my radar for a while. I used to hate the idea of baggy jeans but now that I see so many girls wearing them and making them look fab, I want to bite the bullet and try them out myself. I would definitely pair these jeans up with some trainers and tight top, a style I really want to be able to rock. 

c. Miss Selfridge Velvet Bralet (link)
I can't be the only one who is lusting over velvet!? I can't get enough of the stuff, I love the way it looks and feels when wearing a velvet piece. This bralet would be a great item for a night out in Chester. I used to be really self-conscious when wearing a crop top but now I just love them, especially when worn with high waisted jeans or skirts. 

d. Fashion Union Embroidered Front Sheer Shirt (link)
I have seen these tops EVERYWHERE I swear. A girl in my university accommodation has one and man, I wish I had one too. I like these tops because even though it does show off a lot of skin, I love the way they look as to be honest they look incredible sexy, especially when they are worn with high waisted black jeans. What I love about this one in particular is the embroidered flowers just covering your boobs, I honestly just love how this top looks.

So there you are, 5 items I lusting over at the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to invest in a few of them soon! Are there items on my list that you're currently lusting over too? Please let me know in the comments below!

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Those Reading Updates #5

Today I have book review for you! I recently signed up to the local library to my university (purely because my university library only stocks academic books) and I picked up a few books. One of those I finished a few days ago and I just had to share my thoughts as this book was in a way powerful.


The Blurb

A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends - the Liars - whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True Love.
The Truth.


Some Thoughts:

- At first I found this book quite slow and confusing as I went into it quite blind, however I definitely now recommend going into it blind as it makes the book far more intriguing the further you get in to the story
- I really liked that throughout the book you were in the same situation as the narrative (Cady) of not knowing what happened to her during a summer, so it gave you the element of trying to figure out yourself
- However, I did not guess the ending and it took me by surprise. I legitimately had tears running down my face - I love a book that can surprise you with a fab plot twist
- I loved that the chapters were really short as it made the book really easy to read and broke up the story well
- I also enjoyed the other characters in the book supporting Cady
- I love E. Lockharts use of metaphors and emotions and how she linked those two together
- Cady at first came off across as a stereotypical posh girl but as the story goes on you start to warm to her and grow frustrated with the situation she gets put in
- I agree with other bloggers when they say that the title of the book gives you a misleading perception of the book
- E. Lockhart did an amazing job to put the whole story in under 250 pages, it was so incredible detailed for such a short book

I gave We Were Liars 4 Stars on Goodreads
Here are some useful links:
Goodreads - link
Amazon - link

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It definitely put me at the edge of my seat by the last 2-3 sections of the book. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a mysterious contemporary and to anyone who loves a great plot twist.

 Let me know if you've read this book and what are your thoughts? I'd love to know. Until next time beauties.

Love, Tabitha x

I think I've Fallen in Love With Lindt

So far I am loving Chester and the surroundings, I really do love living here. Now I know that's quite a statement considering I've lived here for only just over 2 weeks however I'm happy that I've landed at a university in such a pretty area. Not only is Chester gorgeous but it has great shopping facilities (which I guess could be quite bad for myself considering I'm a student with little money, but oh well!). Yesterday my flatmate and I decided to take a trip to Cheshire Oaks (the outlet village I mentioned in my last post) as my flatmate hadn't been there yet and as we had a free day we thought we'd visit. 



There are honestly so many fab shops at Cheshire Oaks and the fact they're outlets make them even better. The majority of shops are designer or high branded shops but there are a few shops such as paperchase and The Body Shop; all selling their products for a cheaper price due to being an outlet. 

I definitely think that Cheshire Oaks is going to be the place to go before christmas to grab those great christmas present deals. I also want to go back before christmas as if I have been good with my money I would like to treat myself with a Barbour jacket as I am so in love with them, especially the wax jackets. 



A shop I was shocked to see was the Lindt shop, as soon as you stepped in there it just smelt devine. Not only did it smell amazing in there but it looked amazing, they had a Lindt pick 'n' mix! They had so many different flavours that I had no idea they even created. 





Like I said before, I definitely think Cheshire Oaks is the place to go before Christmas. The Lindt shop had so many great deals, such as 4 boxes of Lindt chocolate for only £14.50 - I'm definitely going back to buy some of those boxes for friends and family. They also had their cute little Christmas chocolates out which put me in such a christmassy mood, I honestly can't wait! 


After seeing the large pic 'n' mix variety, I couldn't just walk out with not trying a few, so I purchased a few to try when I got home. The flavours I got were white, hazelnut, coconut, caramel, citrus, orange, white & milk and cappuccino - so many great flavours right!? I've tried the citrus one and oh my, I need a box full of these ASAP! 

After walking round the Lindt shop and many others, we decided to sit down for a hot chocolate at the Thorntons Cafe. I can now say that Thorntons definitely provide the nicest hot chocolate. I had a white hot chocolate with cream on top and it was super yummy. I will definitely be revisiting Thorntons again for another hot chocolate that's for sure. 



We had such a great trip to Cheshire Oaks. It wasn't too busy too; I'm not a fan of over busy shopping trips but today was just perfect. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Have you ever been to Cheshire Oaks or somewhere similar? Until next time, 

Love Tabitha x

What I'm Wearing on My Nails #2 

So I definitely should be awarded with the best blogger at neglecting her blog posts. I am super sorry about this but please believe me when I say university is a busy, busy lifestyle! I've decided to do more spontaneous posts (still uploading on Tuesdays and Thursdays) where I will upload posts that are on my mind on the week as I just have no time to plan lots of different posts! Anyway, enough with the rambly intro, let's get on to the actual post. 

Last Monday, my new uni friends and I decided to go to the Cheshire Oakes Lock-In which was a student event where you could get extra discount of off some great brands. Cheshire Oakes is also an outlet village which house many great brands such as Nike, Barbour, Calvin Klein and many others, they also have a beauty outlet where they sell well-known beauty products at discounted rates. On our trip last week I ended up going to this beauty outlet and they had a HUGE nail varnish section and as you may know, I'm currently OBSESSED with nail varnishes at the moment so when I saw they were selling Essie nail varnishes I just had to look. 


This time round I picked up this cute purple shade. I keep going to grab the pale/pastel colours at the moment so when I noticed this shade I just had to pick it up. This is my first Essie nail varnisjh and I have heard so many great reviews that I thought I'd give them ago and as it was at a discounted price I was even more keen to try it. 

Well, I love this nail varnish. It's so shiny and beautiful to apply on the nails. This nail varnish needs about 2 coats but after that they just look fab. The brush nib is wide which is always better for application I think so again another plus. 



Overall, I am in love with this nail varnish and if  you haven't tried Essie nail varnishes before I definitely recommend trying them. I never actually told you how much I bought this for, I got this little beauty for £4.99! Which I think is a great save when it comes to Essie.

I will leave you for now and hopefully I will become a little more active on here again! How is everyone? I hope you're alright! Let me know what your favourite Essie nail varnish is as I would love to try a few more shades out! 

Love, Tabitha x 


University Fresher Madness

I know this is not the best quality of photos but please forgive me, I have been in a whirlwind of university fresher events for the last 3 days and I'll be honest, I haven't had the time to write the best of posts. However I thought I'd give you a little update on how I'm feeling towards university! Better than no post at all (even though its over 6 hours late)? 


I'm honestly so in love with my university already! I was so nervous before I arrived but I have been lucky enough to have the loveliest of housemates as well as coursemates too. I'm also really enjoying this freshers shindig and I'm handling my drink very well at the moment (hopefully I can keep it that way.. no messy nights please!). We still have 6 more nights of freshers and I'm looking forward to the ones we have planned to go on, I could be seeing Professor Green live on Thursday which I find very exciting.

I haven't got too much to say about the course today purely because today was only a induction day but so far I'm looking forward to the lectures ahead. I made some friends today on my course too and again they are super lovely!

I'm so sorry how tiny this post was but I didn't want to let you down with no post at all! Is anyone else started freshers this September or has already experienced there freshers this year? What events did you have there? I would love to know! 

See you on Thursday for my next post!

A Cute Little Place Called a Butlers Retreat

At the end of this week I'm going to moving all the way from London to Chester. As you can probably tell I'm pretty nervous and craving much of my families and boyfriends attention knowing that I won't be seeing them for a good 6 weeks. So last Sunday I thought it would be nice to grab breakfast with my mum and boyfriend and we ended up going to the Butlers Retreat, situated in epping forest (not too far from where I went to primary school). 

This little restaurant was lovely, not only is the surroundings of the restaurant beautiful but the food there was scrumptious. Here's a few pictures I took on the day. 

Many photos in this post, I hope you dont mind!




How magnificent does this antler chandelier look? 



As you can see it's rather small and quaint but I love that. I also love the detail within the restaurant too. For breakfast I decided to the Caramelised Banana with a chai latte on the side. Let me just tell you, this breakfast was SO yummy. The breakfast consisted of a waffle topped with a dollop of greek yoghurt, berries, almond flakes and a caramelised banana. I could eat this breakfast every morning if I could! My mum opted for the mushroom toastie with a teapigs tea and my boyfriend opted for a bacon ciabatta with a mocha. Overall we all loved our breakfasts and would definitely revisit again.





Next time we take a visit the Butlers Retreat I would love to go at Christmas time on a bright sunny morning and as well as having breakfast I would like to take a walk in to Epping Forest as it's such a lovely place to have stroll through. It also holds many childhood memories of when we use to go as kids after school or at the weekend.

I hope you enjoyed this little post. I do love writing little lifestyle posts such as this one. Thank you again to everyone who is following me on twitter and instagram (links can be found in the side bar). I still can't believe I'm moving to Chester on sunday, crazy.
