Firstly, Newark Castle And A Trip To The Charity Shops. A few weekends ago, when we both had a Saturday off work. We had a lovely day out in Newark and a walk around the castle and town centre. A lovely day out at Newark, with the family. It has been ages since we last visited Newark. My day used to love the auction here down by the river. Newark Castle And A Trip To The Charity Shops.

Secondly, Purple Jumper And Under The Sea Skirt. So here is me being all serious and trying to take some fashion photos, then it turned into another competition with my husband and I on who could make the funniest photos after this one above. Guess what? You can also see the result from this photo shoot now!! Purple Jumper And Under The Sea Skirt. 

Don’t Turn Around. Don’t look back. Keep moving forward. Keep pushing. The pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow, not the beginning. Motivational Monday.

    I completely agree that it’s not graffiti and it is art when you can tell so much time and detail was put into it.

    • 15 June 2021 / 21:03

      Yes, me too. I love seeing good work 🙂

    This is fabulous graffiti! I love a good graffiti wall but sadly we don’t have very many where I live. I really like this boho dress on you. Super cute! Have a great week, Claire, and thanks for hosting!
