Yes, it’s another post not about London. I seriously need to consider changing my blog name to Custard Creams and anywhere-but-London Dreams! However, last Saturday was spent in Cambridge, where the family and I checked out the local farmer’s market, had afternoon tea at Fitzbillies – a lovely café with the most delicious scones & helped a punter push his boat over a path into the river. #CambridgeProblems.
I can completely imagine myself living in Cambridge – riding my bike (complete with a basket, obvs!) around the cobbled streets, popping into cafes on the weekends and watching the uni students go about their days (not jealous at all!). I could picture my life here so much that I found myself Zoopla-ing the properties prices in Cambridge on the way home! Anyone else do this? It’s a fun, yet depressing hobby, when you realise that even a box room studio flat in Cambridge is out of your price range, so you give up on being realistic and up the maximum budget to 2 million pounds! A girl can dream, right?
Anyway back to reality – Cambridge is beautiful this time of year and although I’d say it’s still a bit too warm for the knits and full on autumn gear, it was still lovely to walk around, with hints of the beginning of autumn. However, another trip when the leaves are golden and the boots are out is much needed.
Ah Cambridge, I love thee – just don’t go telling London!
There’s nothing like a quick trip to Cambridge on a random sunny Saturday right? Who can resist wandering the churches, colleges & cobbled streets when its just an hour away?! Sometimes I think we Londoners forget that life outside of London does exist, as we’re so wrapped up in exploring different areas of the capital, we forget about the rest of the country. However, the last couple of years, I have been trying to make an effort to see more of our beautiful country and Cambridge has always been one of my favourite cities, amongst Bath & Edinburgh.
So, here are some snaps I took in Cambridge last weekend, where I sent a couple of hours walking around the markets, staring at the clever university graduates posing in their Hogwarts-like gowns around the colleges & obviously taking hundreds of pictures of the architecture and spring cherry blossoms…an Instagrammer’s dream!
It’s been a while blog friends! Apologies for the slight delay in my new post, but life stuff got in the way and I wanted to upload this mini “vlog”, which I knew would take me hours to edit, so naturally I put it off! I spent around 4 hours of my Saturday night editing this bad boy (rock and roll life!) and am super proud of the end result.
If you didn’t know, I went to Mumbai/Bombay 3 weeks ago for my sister’s wedding shopping, and if you’ve ever been on this type of trip (I avoid the word holiday as there was little to none bikini/beach time!) you’ll know that it can be very full on. Therefore planning on doing full outfit posts was unrealistic, so I decided to film little snippets of our trip and put them together in a non-talking type of vlog.
I hope you like it…
