Fill my little world - The perfect ingredients for a picnic





Bonjour to you all. I'm Bee and I blog over at Fill My Little World

Now that we in London have had more than two days of sunshine in a row, I've accepted that the time has come to get out my pink and orange patterned trousers (not as hideous as they sound, promise). This has nicely coincided with the beginning of lighter evenings and the popping up of flowers everywhere, which can only mean one thing - picnic time is upon us. 

So, with that in mind, here is a little list of some picnic ingredients you really can't do without ::

1. A picnic blanket // or a large scarf, your boyfriend's jumper and so on and so forth

2. Strawberries // they kid you into thinking it's summer in any season

3. Other food // naturally

4. Games // of any description :: frisbee, cricket bat/ball, chess (portable set or on the iPad), Monopoly if you're reallllyyyyy committed...

5. A book and/or some music // for when you all start to get on each other's nerves and/or have fallen out over board games

6. An umbrella // large enough to fit you, your party and items 1-5 under when inevitably your great weather bubble bursts

Happy spring picnicking!
What's your favourite thing to take to a picnic?

Life

Hello stranger!! How terrible have I been lately? I am very sorry for my absence!! Sometimes things get in the way of blogging; uni, friends, even the weather effects how many outfit post we can manage.

I've only got about a month left of uni for this year, I am currently on a break for easter, but there's no rest for the wicked as they say as I am currently buried in assignments.

Although its not all doom and gloom, as I am off to Prague tomorrow for a lovely weekend with my boyfriend! I am so excited although I have to pack yet.. I've always wanted to go to Prague so I cannot wait to tell you all about it when I return from my adventure! 

I do have a lovely guest blogger lined up for you so don't feel sad that you've been left behind!!







More soon,

Soap and Glory wish list!

Hello! 
Sorry I've been quite lately, too much uni work and not enough time! Now if you follow me on Twitter, you'd know my spending ban has been going horrendously lately so I thought I'd try and be good, instead of heading down to Boots I thought I'd do a wish list post instead!! 


I love love Soap and Glory, I blame my best friend Abigail. She's obsessed and since helping to boost her collection for her birthday, I thought I'd need to add to mine too! 
Archery Brow tint and pencil, I've not heard anything but good things about this! I'm currently living MUAs brow pallet which is by far the best brow powder I have tried but I'd like to try something different! Although I'm not too sure which shade to get, it comes in blond and brown but the brown looks very dark.. Must swatch! 
  
Supercat eyeliner, heard great things about this too! One of Abigail's faves and I'm sure it will be one of mine too! Gotta love a felt liner!!

Flake Away is by far the best body scrub I've ever tried. I've used similar ones to this and they don't come close! I love how my skin looks after I've used it! I definitely need to repurchase soon ready for bear leg weather especially!!

One Heck Of A Blot, I've heard plenty of wonderful things about this too! Rumour has it that it's better than Rimmels Stay Perfect.. I'm currently using a translucent Accessorize powder compact, I don't really need to use powder everyday and it does the job well. Although I'd love a natural looking powder, I always feel like I can tell my powder is there and more often than not all powders make me look orange, so if this is half as good as everyone says, I'd be very impressed! 


I do love Soap and Glory, the quality is amazing for a reasonably priced brand, but if I'm honest like everyone else I think its the packaging that wins me over every time! 

Have you tried any of these products? Or can recommend any other wonders from Soap and Glory? I'd love to hear them!

More soon,

Berlin

Gutten Abend! Wie ghets? Ich bin gut, danke! 
Good evening! How are you? I'm good, thanks! I am prod to say after four years since my GCSE days I can just about remember enough German or Deutsch to hold a short conversation with a toddler.. Anyway since my last adventures post (you can see it here!) seemed to be a hit, today we are off to Berlin! 




                                              Brandenburg gate

                                                Berlin cathedral


                                                Christmas market


How amazing is the skyline? So amazing that I had to include it twice haha! I've been lucky enough to go to Germany twice before, from Aachen to Strasbourg (yes I know its on the border!) to Freiburg and I've even visited the Black Forrest. I have however never been to Berlin and although the Black Forrest was one of the most magical places I've ever been, Berlin is just full of history and I am a history nerd.

If I ever got the chance to visit Berlin, I'd definitely visit all the famous sights such as the Brandenburg gate and the cathedral just because they are really amazing pieces of architecture, I am a sucker for old buildings that are worthy of being classed as art work, I am definitely not a fan of all these glass skyscrapers!

I'd also visit the Berlin wall, a part of it still stands and I think it would be incredible to actually see it. I remember my German teacher used to own a small part of it and I was fascinated with it, imagine what I'd be like with the real thing!?

I'd also visit as many cafes as possible, if you haven't had a German hot chocolate with all the works, you haven't lived! Also I have been lucky enough to visit a real German market and the ones we have in England really don't compare! So I would really love to visit around Christmas time and see all the lovely stalls with all the fairy lights and fresh gingerbread smells.

I'd also have a wonder around 'museum island' I am a museum lover! Am I the most fun person you know!? Museum Island has lots of museums to keep you occupied and if you some how manage to get bored Berlin has many Photoautomaten's to 
capture memories! (Photo booths to fellow english speakers!)



What would you do if you visited Berlin? I hope you're enjoying this series of posts!
