My perfect weekend?

It looks a little bit like this.

Heading out for a good old explore and inhaling some fresh air. Working in an office during the week means that when the weekend rolls around I’m itching to get outside – whatever the weather! Last weekend however, global warming did its thang and we were treated to 18 degrees of sunshine in October, so hastily I threw on a comfy jumper and crunched my way through the autumn leaves.

I firmly believe a good walk is great therapy; inhale the clean air, immerse yourself in the pretty world around you and you’ll be feeling fresh as a daisy in no time. North Essex, where I live, is brimming with gorgeous scenery, country walks and an abundance of wildlife – so it pretty much ticks all the boxes!

Of course, I made time to Instagram my new Primark purchase! Aren’t they bee-a-utiful?

As the sunlight flickered its way through the gaps in the trees we wandered aimlessly, taking some obligatory leaf throwing snaps along the way.

And here we have…the lesser spotted photographer!

After more than enough failed leaf throwing (why is it so ruddy hard to get a good photo?!), it was time to venture home to put our feet up with a hot chocolate and a good film. All in all – a perfect afternoon!

You can discover my 3 autumn wardrobe staples here, cook up a heartwarming cauliflower cheese here, and read all about my trip pumpkin picking here – can you tell I like this season?!
