Every year as September rolls around I begin to eagerly anticipate the Lush Halloween range; the glittery pumpkin-shaped bubble bars and ghoulish bath bombs that appear in stores as the spooky season descends upon us.
This year I didn’t have long to wait, with the range dropping much earlier than previous years. Naturally I was in my local Lush, scooping up all the bath-time treats on the day of their release. And truth be told, what better way to kick start the season than with a big ole Lush haul?
September crept in slowly, bringing with it a chill in the air.
On the last bank holiday toward the end of August, Gareth and I decided to make the most of the late Summer sunshine and take our annual trip down to the New Forest in Dorset.
We are very fortunate to be able to visit the New Forest a few times a year because Gareth’s parents own a stationary caravan in a large holiday park down there. The New Forest is a very beautiful place and we always enjoy long, quiet weekends there spent walking through woodland or watching the sea lap against the shore. I have so many unique and special memories of Dorset and our caravan holidays but strangely I have never blogged about a trip or captured any of those moments with my camera.
On this particular bank holiday weekend I was determined that would change and I would finally share some photographs and words with you before the Summer slipped away. Who knows, perhaps this will inspire you to take a trip to the dreamy New Forest and enjoy a peaceful time there for yourself…
This Summer it has been very quiet over at Pretty Little Finch. You’d be forgiven for thinking that I simply had nothing to share or write about, but in reality it has been a pretty action-packed few months. This Summer (for the most part) I simply decided to just live without getting the perfect shot and analysing every experience in a detailed 1,000 + word post. So yes, I’ve been documenting the good (and the bad) days over on Instagram, but I haven’t shared much of it over on this blog.
