St Annes on Sea

I took this trip in July but I am only just getting round to posting this! St Annes is a gorgeous sea side town on the outskirts of Blackpool. I used to go there every year when I was little. It was our family vacation spot, same hotel, same time every year. It’s bittersweet to think about it actually. The last time I was there was 2015, just after I graduated from University I went down with my dad, gran and papa for a short holiday. It was lovely, so when Ross decided to go to Prague for this Stag Do my dad jumped at the chance to take me and the family back down for a long weekend. The day we arrived I had been working all day before hand so we were shattered that night. The next morning when I got up it was pouring and I couldn’t help be disappointed, but that soon changed when the sun appeared after breakfast. The first full day we went through to Lytham. Now I absolutely …

Playfair’s St Andrews

Weekends. They go from one extreme to another in our house. Most of the time Saturday is a write off for any dates because Ross is either refereeing or playing in the weekly golf medal, so its unusual for us to get a Saturday together. Back at the beginning of July we managed to get some time to ourselves for a day trip to St Andrews. I absolutely LOVE this little town. The cute boutique shops mixed with high street shops hidden in old cobbled streets, bustling with tourists or students from the university. It’s strange to think it was Kate & Wills old stomping ground during their student years. That weekend the sun was shining and temperatures were soaring that weekend so we thought there would be no where better to spend the day. We were unfortunately met with thick fog and colder temperatures when we arrived! I couldn’t believe it. We were on the wrong coast for the best of the weather. Now, if you haven’t been to St Andrews I advise you …

Father & Daughter Day Out

My dad has always been my best friend. We have always been stuck together like glue, so when I moved out after the engagement it hit us both hard. It took a long time to get used to it but like anything in life, you adapt. With the wedding a month away those emotions of separation are resurfacing. It’s all in the mind, but when you’re getting married you feel like your life before is coming to an end. Childhood has officially gone. Our schedules between now and the big day are mental, so we decided that we would have one last day out together before I say I do (You would honestly think I was leaving forever after reading that). We had decided to do something before the wedding but just didn’t know when, until I got a lovely unexpected Friday off from work. I’ve been working so much over time recently I had enough for a full day off without using holidays (Thank goodness because Ive used them all for the honeymoon lol!). …

It’s A Hen Thing! (Part 1)

It’s six weeks to go until the big day and the next biggest thing just happened, the Hen Party! I had the most amazing day and the effort put in was totally unexpected. We started at our house where all the ladies met up for a few pre drinks. While we were waiting we got little goodie bags filled with willy straws, dares, shots and bubbles! Each bag even had my name and the details on it. Up until this moment I didn’t know what the plans were for the day, so the girls put together a little itinerary for me to read out. I finally knew what was happening and I couldn’t be more excited! We downed the rest of the drinks and jumped into the taxi. First stop, The Social in Glasgow for a Cocktail Making Class. I’ve never been a heavy partier or drinker so this was perfect for me! We were split into two booths, given a fab selection of nibbles and got to make 2 cocktails each. I don’t think …

Overnight At Turnberry

It’s been almost a month since we went away from Ross’s birthday but, I can’t stop thinking about how amazing it was. And, how perfect every moment was. To cut a long story short, I decided for this year for his birthday I would take him away for the night to Trump Turnberry in Ayr. He’s a major golf fan and since we went there for a day trip, it’sΒ been at the back of my mind to go. To be honest, I don’t even know where to begin. The hotel is out of this world. It’s a different level of luxury. At first, I felt very self conscious at how posh is seemed and how the other guest were acting. They arrived in the fanciest cars with the newest and most expensive clothes on. But, I decided to play along. I had fairly paid my way after all. When you arrive, your bags are taken from you and your are escorted into a side office to check in. Its decorated in the softest cream leather …
