I am still without internet in my new flat until the nice virgin media man comes to visit next week, so I'm back at my parent's briefly to steal the internet!

For Christmas my sister bought James and I a ticket each to visit Kew Gardens. I know Christmas was ages ago, but with all the rubbish weather it never seemed like quite the day for visiting until now, but it made an amazing way to destress after all the moving last weekend.

My favourite bit was visiting the great glasshouses, and being able to walk on the balconies high above all the greenery and look down. Oh and my amazing lavendar, blueberry and salted caramel ice-cream to finish the day!

I love Kew Gardens! It's such a nice place to go and stay for a bit when you need to get out of the city. And the little shops around town were really cute too last time I was there, which was several years ago, (so I don't know if they've changed). I remember picking up cute things to give as gifts and such. Love the print on your dress by the way. :)
