 It was a lovely day yesterday, so when Christine said ‘Do you want to play out?’ I said YES. I had just received this package form Choies with this lovely Bow Dress and wanted to take some snaps for zee blog.

We went to the secret place of Corinne and took photos. I took some shots of her, all of her outfit is from ASOS apart from the bag, which is from Jane Norman.

After creating the blawg photos, we went to Morrisons and got a salad from their amazing salad bar and then went to Kirstall Abbey. 

Kirstall Abbey is a ruined Cistercian monastery in Leeds. Established in 1152, It’s now set in a public park and has a visitors centre. You can visit it free of charge and there are even guided tours. There’s also markets, fair grounds and other events throughout the year. Those of you that follow my Instagram account may recognise it, as I often run up to the Abbey, do a few laps of the grounds and return home.

 We went back to the car park where there are a handful of shops. Doom, this means I have to be the things because I’ve got a spending problem. I got some new work out gear and some makeup and hair things from boots, as well as a few other bits and pieces from Dunns. We proceeded back to Morrisons to get some monkfish and scallops for tea. Yay. 

Overall, it was a good day.
