If you go down to the woods

 
It's not very often I get a chance of a 'break', i'm always on the go.
This weekend was a little different. After spending yesterday eating ice cream by the riverside, soaking up that fleeting British Summer, today I went that one step further.
My sister turned17 today and it's not very often we get to spend time together, so we decided to go for a little woodland frolicking. We visited Alnwick Castle, a place of history, iconically British and unforgettably a location where Harry Potter was filmed.
There was something so peaceful and most of all relaxing about visiting this gorgeous landscape. Instead of getting caught up in the hustle of the city I actually spent my Sunday doing exactly as I pleased, of course that included spending lunchtime sipping cocktails.
I like to constantly work.
I keep myself motivated at all costs, but sometimes it becomes a little unhealthy.
It's always okay to take that breath of fresh air you need. 
Never feel guilty, as long as you choose to spend it wisely.

City blues

 We all know i'm a self proclaimed city girl but now we have hit the summer months i'm a little over it, it's time for a vacay. There is something I love about the fast pace of the city, the motivation it gives you and the desire and drive it gives you to succeed. Now by no means has that disappeared but my love of it is dwindling, at least in this location. Catch me on the streets of NY, Milan or Pariee and I would be in heaven but i'm in need of a break. 

The city, the place where I once loved and thrived, is becoming dark and dangerous, and we aren't talking in a tall, dark and handsome sort of way. The more you put into the less you get out of it but that is just simply not enough to provoke failure. After all I did say when life gives you lemons... 
The world has a funny way of working and quite simply it has tested me this year, throwing everything in my path but it's just not enough to break me. 

I'm just not ready to give up my city girl persona, but it's time to fall in love with the island for a while.

Watch this space darlings. Things are about to get a little heated.
