We had a lovely Easter bank holiday weekend down in Kent.
Visiting Dreamland, walking along the sea front and a family day out to Howletts Wildlife Park. I have a funny relationship with Zoo’s, I love visiting them but also can’t help hating seeing the Animals in cages and wish they didn’t have to be locked up. It’s a strange one, as lots of the animals were born here and unable to be realised into the wild but thankfully some of the offspring have been able to be released back into the wild which I was delighted to hear. We actually were lucky enough to have a really good chat with one of the ladies who worked for Howletts and she was telling us about the breeding, and how its a conservation charity and about the work they do to releasing animals back into the wild. You can read more about the work they are doing here.
I’ve been saving this dress for a special occasion, it was a birthday present from my Mother – she knows my style very well! This linen dress served me well in the mini heatwave we’re having. I’m also sporting my newest hair band which I picked up from Primark. They are just so good and affordable, I thought this leopard print one would go perfect with my tan dress. I really wanted to bring a straw bag with me to use for this look, but unfortunately we were limited on what we could bring due to getting the train down. Dave’s car was in for it’s MOT, it was a pack light and jump on a train affair, thankfully we were able to drive the car back home. It’s one of those pack light situations and had to make do with my daily handbag.
I’ve just got back off on a girls holiday to sunny Fuerteventura. I took this dress with me but I swapped out my my trainers for sandals and packed my straw handbag!
