- Sunday Summary: Fun, Fitness & Scenic Strolls...

Climbing: I've still been bouldering weekly, and my love for it has certainly grown as I've become better (funny that ;)). I can now manage to hold myself up and get somewhere when it comes to overhangs, but I'm not quite Rob-level just yet. One day...

Mexican Themed Party: We spent one weekend in Shropshire celebrating a friends birthday in fully fledged Mexican style - hello homemade curtain-ponchos. Thankfully the weather was on our side as we BBQ'd and camped overnight. And yep, that is a Beetle Bar containing tequila-centered concoctions. The next day, we stopped off at a country pub on the way home where we had a ploughman's lunch. Bye bye hangover.

Sunny Days: Amongst regular gloominess, there has been the odd Sunny day. Me & Rob embraced the British Summer the other week and trundled to Bill's for brunch. Ultimate #foodporn. We then had a wander around the abbey and park. Relaxed Sunday's are the best.

New Shoes: If #foodporn wasn't enough, how about some #shoeporn?! You've probably gathered by now how obsessed by these pointed lace ups I am, but more pictures won't hurt. AMIRITE?!

What do you think of this summary post? I hope you're all well!

  4. I do love this post just as I love the previous one, it's nice to see what's going on in your life and it breaks away from the normal beauty/fashion posts. I really want to try bouldering, it looks really tough but would give a great workout.
