This weekend I abandoned my computer completely. I don’t think it missed me, it was probably glad of the rest.

The next few weeks are shaping up to be busy as September appears to be the new August where Weddings are concerned and I get to watch 2 very close friends tie the knot. It’s also London Fashion Week from the 18th September and I’m hoping to be able to dip my toe into just a small sample of what’s going on, at the very least I shall be checking out the Estethica exhibition.

So, this weekend, I took the opportunity to clear my head and head to the coast for a picnic. Just because there’s a nip in the air doesn’t mean you have to abandon trips to the beach or picnics just swap the bikini and chilled lemonade for jackets and flasks of chilli and coffee

I wrapped up in my new DIY scarf, trench coat and some comfy Gap trousers for a trip to Mundesley in North Norfolk. It has a wide sandy beach, that was filled with surfers making the most of the blustery wind and subsequent waves.


All that space and the sand between my toes left me feeling exhausted and windswept, but also a lot more calm and revitalised.

I’m ready to face September head on. Are you?
