Turning 28

So I turned 28 on Tuesday. 28...gosh that sounds so strange. I woke up with the sun shining through the window. A few little presents were opened, and then we wandered down the road to have breakfast. We decided to go to the Green Door Deli. David mentioned it was my birthday, and the guys said I could have a free birthday desert. David treated me to birthday pancakes and the guys gave me extra bacon.
We then went into Canterbury to meet my awesome friend Sarah. We looked around the cute shops and then decided to go for lunch. We went to my favourite cafe in Canterbury, Cafe turquoise. We had iced coffees and sandwiches.
I got such wonderful gifts such as a new Kanken, holiday money for my trip, and fun boardgames.
I also received the greatest balloon, which was a huge Hello Kitty! I am so in love with it. My mum made me a pastel rainbow cake, and it was the most tasty cake ever! Go mumma Jennings! I had a brilliant day with family and friends. Being 28 isn't too bad so far.

Day trip to Rochester

On Monday I took a trip to Rochester. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shinning, and I just felt so positive. We wandered in and out of a few shops, but then I spotted an amazing tearoom. This tearoom was called Fleur de Thé.
I could see such gorgeous coloured teacups and teapots from the window. When I walked in I felt like I had fallen through the rabbit hole to a wonderful tea party. Pretty teacups were placed on the table in front of us. A lovely gentleman came to greet us, as we looked at the menu and we ordered some delicious tea.
What I really loved about Fleur de Thé was that you could buy all the chinaware to take home. So they use teacups you can buy which are the same. This made me very excited because as much as I love vintage tearooms, you can't buy these teacups. But here you could. The spoons were my favourite, and I might have to go back and buy some with some birthday money.
We wandered around the town and popped into various cute shops. Vintage, homeware, second hand book shops, and cute coffee/art gallery shops.
I stumbled across a shop called Mini Mi. It is so gorgeous! I'm not a mummy, but I still wanted everything in the store. I purchased a gold make your own banner. Which I have been looking for everywhere. So that was a nice surprise. Plus we made friends with a little pug.
After all that, at the end of the day we wandered around the castle and took photos. It's a glorious place, and with the sun out, it was even more perfect. I took a few snaps with my Instax.
We headed home after a wonderful day. It was the perfect last day of being 27.

Adventure? Sure, let's go!

So the first day of my week off was spent waking up super early, and heading down to the local bootsale. Plus the night before I went out for drinks with new friends, which was ever so lovely. I can't wait to move to the seaside permanently. I love the sea air. I had my new Little Mermaid tote with me.
We wandered around and I found some vintage Trolls, which I was very excited about! I may have nearly jumped up and down. I looked through them, and found 4 that I really wanted. They just need a little clean, and they will be perfect on my shelf with my other little treasures. I picked some other cute bits and pieces up, and then we hoped onto a bus to Whitstable. 
We arrived rather early so we went for breakfast at a Peter Cushing restaurant, which used to be a theatre. It's a beautiful building. After breakfast we wandered and visited a craft fair, a few more cute little shops, and purchased cupcakes.
The shops in Whitstable are always so perfect. I could just spend all of my money in them. So many quirky little homeware treasures.
I always love to wander around pretty little towns. Exploring is always an adventure.

Recently reading comicbooks

You can be certain that I am pretty fond of collecting and reading comics. And even more so now with all the great titles that are around. There are so many pretty interesting comics around. However pretty drawings and cute characters always makes me check them out. Also, anything by Boom always gets my thumbs up.
I always found getting into comics really hard, with lots of history and back stories. But now it's so easy as there is loads of new cute comics appearing. With lots of wonderful stories, it's easy to jump on board. Of course my favourite series at the moment is Bee and PuppyCat by Natasha Allegri. I also did start Lumberjanes at the same time. I read them both for quite a while, but I have stuck with B&PC. My new favourite past time is searching for different covers for B&PC, and of course special covers. I always seem them as works of art.
Currently I have also been reading Jem, The unbeatable Squirrel girl, Spider-Gwen and Help Us! Great warrior. I have got a few comics left to start, like Giant Days. Which I am very excited about, as it took a long time to track a copy down.
Nothing beats reading a good comicbook with a cold drink in the sunshine. What comicbooks are you reading?

A sunny day in Herne Bay

I spent yesterday by the seaside with my special person. We started the day with a much deserved sleep in. A few cups of tea, and the we headed out into the boiling hot sun. The wonderful sea air and the warm sun was a perfect pair. It's so nice for it to be sunny enough to wear my sunglasses and my pretty bird print dress.
The sky was a gorgeous blue, with hardly any clouds. We wandered around the front and I stared longingly at the beach huts, and hopefully one day I will own one.
We went for a spot of lunch at the Green Door Deli. It's such a cute place to stop for coffee, or wonderful food and fruit juices. I had a light lunch of a yummy croissant with local ham and cheese.
I did a little shopping also. Picked up some books from a few charity shops. And also found some more sheet music for current artwork.
We wandered on the pier, had ice cream, listened to the sea and held hands. Such a simply perfect day.
