Daylesford Farmshop and Café, Cotswolds

Daylesford has become one of my favourite places to visit ever. I've only been twice, but the two times I have been I've just been so happy to be there. My last visit filled me with so much joy that I thought I had to write a blog post about it! Driving through the little village is just how you would imagine the Cotswolds to be, flowers everywhere, animals grazing in the fields and lots of little cosy cottages. Once you've arrived you're greeted by blooming apple trees and colourful leaves on the floor, I think the changeable weather was making the trees a little confused. 

They've recently just opened up the garden, which is a shop is dedicated to their love of horticulture and is inspired by all of their organic farmland, hedgerows and seasonal blooms! As I'm sure you'll agree from the pictures below, it is so stunning. I felt so inspired I bought a Brassica plant and a gorgeous teal plant pot from there for £10, which I thought was such a great deal.

If you're feeling hungry why not stop of at the farmshop to pick up supplies for a luxurious picnic or simply have a delicious organic pizza from The Old Spot. I had the mozzarella, tomato and home-made pesto pizza, this one of the best I've ever eaten and I've eaten A LOT of pizza's in my life! I think it was all of the organic ingredients, it made such a difference. From the farmshop I'd really recommend their dark ginger sticky cake and gluten free lager! 

There you have it, my little round-up/review of Daylesford! If you have any recommendations of places to visit in the Cotswolds please let me know as I'm sure I'll be back soon! 

When work and everyday life gets too manic it's the perfect excuse to run away and have a break. I know people say you should face things you don't want to do but when you can take a fun trip to the Cotswolds then why not? 

In the past year I've visited three times and it's becoming a firm favourite place of mine, lots of delicious food, plenty of cakes & afternoon teas as well as animals galore, what more could this gal need? I'm planning on putting together a Cotswolds guide as there are so many brilliant things to do.

However if you're looking for somewhere unique to stay I have just the place for you, let me introduce you to The Loft, a quiet flat located in a church in the Cotswolds Hills, found via Airbnb. Beautifully decorated with plenty of scrumptious restaurants near by and only a 2 hour drive from London, it really is a fantastic place to escape! The photos don't do it justice, it's so cosy and is the perfect fit for the area but still is modern and definitely Instagram worthy, I mean have you seen those windows?! The bathroom is equally as amazing with a navy freestanding bath, but the doors are what makes it, if you stay you'll see what I mean. If this is not the place for you as you're feeling a little fancy then you might want to check out Admington Hall...

It's probably very obvious by now, but I'm partial to wearing a pretty dress, they're just so easy to wear. I'm quite a lazy person and I love that I just have to put it on and not think about anything else to pair with my outfit. So whether it's a sparkly dress for parties, a tea dress for picnics or sundress for the beach, I'm probably into them.

Now, this H&M dress is perhaps not the most sensible piece to buy for the upcoming season but I was more than happy to add it to my bulging wardrobe, surely one more can't hurt.... Plus there's so many things I love about this dress, from the embroidery to the cut-outs around the edges, it's right up my street and let's not forget the back! I just love that it's this open pinafore sort of style then right at the top there's button detailing. It's so pretty, I'm amazed I've not seen anyone else in it! For £50, it's quite steep for H&M but I think it's pretty reasonable considering the unique design and quality of the fabric. I can imagine people easily paying £200-£300 for something like this from For Love and Lemons or Free People! So I'm practically saving money! Now let's just hope the sun comes back out in the UK so I can wear it again...
