My plans for the perfect English summer

My plans for the perfect English Summer

Ok, after we're done laughing about the contradiction that is 'English summer'... I'm going home scarily soon, and so instead of sulking about it, I wanna make loads of plans and really enjoy my time at home. Here's what I'm thinking so far...

1// Picnics- as pinterest worthy and yummy as I can make it!

2// Barbecue a summer staple! Hopefully I won't burn anything this time...

3// Make homemade lemonade. And then preferably drink it from a mason jar and instagram the heck out of it ;)

4// Have afternoon tea (gotta amp up the Britain factor, amirite)

5// Go to the Beach with my family~
We've got a little mini break to Broadstairs planned, and I'm sooo excited. I'm gonna have fish and chips, and ice cream, and go swimming... It's gonna be great. I'd love to drag the boy out to the beach too if I get the chance.

6// Shopping~ I love Japanese fashion so much and I'm gonna miss shopping in my beloved Osaka, but there are a few places I'm excited to shop at back in the UK

7// Go to London: I'm determined to go to places that I haven't been to a lot, like Shoreditch and Brick Lane

8// Go to a theme park~ especially Margate Dreamland- it looks so cute and vintage <3

9// Visit Bournemouth again and make my sister show me around (she's at uni there)

10// Of course, visit my boyfriend in Salisbury <3

11// I wanna go to Brighton again, I've never been to the Lanes there, and that's the best bit, right?

12// After I'm back in Leeds, I really wanna explore Yorkshire too. I've only been to a couple of places like Howarth and Skipton, but I really wanna go to Scarborough and York next.

Thanks for reading! Do you guys have any exciting summer plans?

  1. I'd love to do a picnic sometime over this summer - I've got my fingers crossed that we'll have at least on sunny weekend before Autumn hits (I heard that this weekend it's supposed to be quite nice!)

    If you do go for afternoon/cream tea, let me know what it was like as I'm trying out as many places as I can! I went to one in an Oxford hotel and it wasn't as princess-y as I expected although it was still quite nice. I just want to feel like I'm in the Victorian era tehe!

    Hope you achieve all of your summer goals, and I can't wait to see your posts on each of them!

    1. I'm wishing good weather your way! If I find a good afternoon tea place I'll let you know! You have to let me know too if you find one ok? I hope you achieve your summer goals too <3
