This post has been delayed a bit due to a busy schedule*, but a few weeks ago Mama C came up for a long weekend. I had an absolutely hilarious weekend and I barely stopped laughing or shopping. Which may explain my current shopping ban...
*sorry Mama C!
As Mama C's trip over coincided with her birthday it allowed me to surprise her with her present in person! I always try to treat her, and I especially wanted to get something special as she's been amazing this past year. So after a lot of brainstorming I chose a Liberty print address book and a few other little bits. The present arrived beautifully wrapped and Mama C absolutely loved it!
Instead of spending the entire weekend in Oxford we decided to take a day trip to London to have some girly time and do some shopping. We both treated ourselves to some purchases; I got a new bag, something which I definitely did not need, but couldn't resist! And Mama C treated herself to some new make up and an absolutely gorgeous scarf, which I may or may not have talked her into getting.
After our shopping spree we needed to refuel so we had a lovely meal at Hix with a cheeky glass of wine.
Doesn't Mama C look pretty!
We also treated ourselves to a spot of dessert! I tried macaroons for the first time, and to be honest, I don't get the hype. I suppose that makes me a bad blogger, but I just don't get it...
After our trip to busy London we decided to have a bit of a lazy day. We spent the day wandering aimlessly around Oxford which resulted in a lovely walk through University Park, which is beautiful but not great for someone suffering from hayfever! I've never stayed in Oxford over the summer, so I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to do so this summer. Oxford is an absolutely beautiful city which I would definitely recommend everyone visiting, if you can I would definitely visit in the summer when the baby ducks are out!
After our long walk around the city it was time for a spot of Sunday lunch with my brothers in the Royal Oak.They have a beautiful beer garden and delicious food. I would definitely recommend it. However, if you are going to sit out, don't do a Hazel bring some sun lotion! It was an absolute scorcher of a day.
My new purchase from London was the Vivenne Westwood bag shown above, I may be a little in love with it.
Our perfect weekend was rounded off with some homemade goodies and a girly film.
I had a great weekend, Mama C is absolutely hilarious, I wish it could have been longer!
