by the seaside


Another weekend, another town to mooch round and get snap happy! This weekend I visited my old pal Sophie (she has started a fabbo craft blog - check it out here) for fun, food and frolics around Southsea, Hamble and everywhere in between. 

We started with a mooch round the incredibly cute Southsea - vintage shop upon vintage shop, cute cafes and quirky interiors/home shops. We stumbled upon Make and immediately fell in love; Sophie was in crafty sewing, stitching and knitting heaven! Its a fab shop that sells crafting goods, as well as hosts workshops, provides a space to craft, is full of inspiration and most importantly offers tea and cake to accompany this. You can follow them on twitter, or check out the above link to see the full list of what they offer. 


We stopped for a drink at Garage Lounge, and once again I fell head over heels for the quirky atmosphere and tasty offerings. We had an oreo milkshake which was quite literally incredible! They have an ice cream parlour attached out back, as well as serving food which looked mouth-wateringly tasty. I wish I lived nearer!



The rest of our day involved a brief mooch around Gunwharf, back to Sophie's for copious amounts of peppermint tea, out for drinks in Hamble (again, wish I lived closer, it is gorgeous there) before gorging on homemade curry back at the house. Sophie made a sweet potato and spinach curry as well as a chicken passanda - she is such an amazing cook! The recipes she follows are super healthy and so tasty, I can't wait to try them out at home myself. We finished up with my key lime pie and watching X Factor with wine, where I promptly fell asleep on the sofa. Standard!
