#38

As you may, or probably not, have noticed, I've become a little lazy (again) with the old blog, so apologies for that! However, my friend from Reading has been staying with me the past few days and therefore I have been super busy on tour-guide type duty! I've been having a lot of fun visiting some local tourist attractions that I hadn't been to for years including cheddar gorge and Priddy-a beautiful little village with super sunset-watching hotspots! I completely regret not taking enough photos but I hope the snaps I have for you from today's trip will make up for that. So today we went to *African bongo drum roll*, Longleat! With it being one of my favourite places from my childhood, I was extremely up for going back and checking out all the new exciting things that have been built there over the years. I can't imagine you don't know, but if you don't, Longleat is a safari park/zoo/campsite all-round fabulous place. Animals are well looked after with suitable, spacious enclosures and there are dozens of various attractions for anyone and everyone! This visit was particularly memorable because I tried a few (some scary!) new things, including holding a snake who was far too determined to get it's head next to my hand, complete with slithering tongue! 
Of course this is a fashion blog so firstly, my ootd (outfit of the day):



I'm afraid I was very pushed for time with this little shoot and the camera was playing up a little so they are not of the highest quality. My outfit was slightly boring I suppose today, mainly because we had an early start and therefore there was no dawdling over what to wear. On top of that,it had to be versatile in a variety of weather conditions (England seems to be messing us about a bit with weather at the moment!) as well as being comfy for the long day ahead! So I went safe with my bargain Topshop woollen trousers which have been featured before (I love them okay?), new look slipper pumps, black vest top, waterfall-ish cardigan and Elephant print staple bag (so appropriate!). I know it's not a particularly interesting choice but there you go! Moving on to the really exciting bit, here are my totally un-fashion-related-yet-completely-cool photos from today, enjoy!
