ENGLISH ROSE


 Today I had some family time and we drove off to Castleton. Going in to the countryside is always beautiful when you live in the city. I love the cosy, little cottages with the adorable names like 'Lilac Cottage'. There was vintage tearooms at every corner of the cobbled road, souvenir shops where I bought a postcard for my scrapbook and the whiff of fish and chips - it felt very English. We also took a tour to the Castle, the walk up to it took my breath away - literally! We watched a medieval reenactment and took in the amazing view. As well as all the old fashioned scenery and shops, we found an American themed diner. I got a Mocha Chocca Ice Cream - yum! It was a really nice day out. But, I don't think I could ever live in the countryside, there are far too many flies and I love the city vibe!



Do you prefer the city or the countryside?

  7. Hey, I found your blog from twitter (@doitfortheirony) <3 So glad I found your blog! You're so CUTE. And I think your style is super inspiring. :) Can't wait to read more!

    I'm the same. I love the look of the countryside but I love the city feel. That ice cream looks so yummy! And your top is my favorite. I love the arm and bottom details.
