A Picnic in the Park

My and a couple of friends decided to make the most of the gorgeous sunshine we are getting in the UK at the moment (29 C on Saturday!) and have a little picnic in the park. It was great to meet up and my two friends met each other after hearing a lot from me about each of them and hit it off rather well. So, on with the photos!

I baked these melt in the middle chocolate orange muffins - I will do a recipe post if you want (comment below if you want me to do the post).

My technique to stop the worry of the dreaded Double Dipper. Gotta love 'chips and dips' and when you say that in the UK most people look at you as though you are going to be eating oven chips with hummus.

We found the perfect shady spot to sit in

 The delicious food! And my shoes are from Primark as are Zara's - just as a bit of a side note.

Gorgeous coffee cake I bought in a little cafe

I found some pretty flowers to photograph

Summer Punch by Schweppes which tasted just like Pimm's but is non-alcoholic and much cheaper

With Zara in the sun - we both forgot sunglasses

Bought possibly my favourite drink Lipton Ice Tea but in Peach rather than my favourite Lemon

In Cafe Nero

I bought Sicilian Lemonade - it was very refreshing!

I hope you enjoyed reading this and be sure to tell me how you are enjoying the sun! Also if you have any favourite summer activities or picnic food be sure to let me know.
