Things I've loved this week // 011

A little Sunday round-up, some of the little things that I've been loving this week!

A new camera
My old camera has been slowing down recently so this week I decided that it was time to take the plunge and upgrade it! I decided upon the Nikon 1 J5 as not only was it super affordable, it is also lightweight and completely versatile. Perfect for our upcoming holidays and adventures! I am really looking forwards to seeing what it can do over the next few weeks.

Family time
Always, always! This girl's smile and happiness mean absolutely everything to me and I love all of our adventures together.

New jewellery
I have really cut down on buying things for myself over the past 3 years. Long gone are the days of spending my spare pennies on candles, magazine, jewellery and shoes! I must add that this was by choice and honestly, it makes the times that I do buy/receive these things all the more special.
I received this gorgeous multi chain necklace from JOY recently and I'm so in love with it. I am super obsessed with geometric shapes at the moment and this necklace is just so easy to wear too, I'm finding that it goes well with almost everything. JOY are often one of my first stops when it comes to gift shopping so it's nice to have a little treat for myself too!

Deer spotting
I've been told about the deer in our local cemetery so many times and this week, finally, we saw it. It was only a few footsteps away from us and seeing it was a bit of magic, especially considering the urban location of the cemetery. Miss E has been talking about "Bambi" ever since! 

I must apologise for the rubbish photo, my cold hands were not co-operating with my phone camera!

Hot Chocolate
Like pretty much everyone out there at the moment, I've been feeling pretty fed up with the unusually cold weather we've been experiencing recently. This weekend we packed up a lovely picnic and headed out into the Peak District only to be caught out in yet more rain and sleet. There was only one thing for it.... a steaming hot mug of hot chocolate with all the trimmings. I enjoyed this at Matlock Meadows whilst sheltering from the rain. It was so, so good and just what I needed!
