Bubble tea on the Tyne!

This part of the month is so hectic birthday-wise. I turned 24 last Monday, my boyfriend is 26 on Tuesday and my sister is 21 on Wednesday! So in celebration, we travelled to Hartlepool yesterday for a family meal at the Raby Arms, a really pretty pub which is over 300 years old!

Wensleydale & sweet chilli roasted pepper salad.

Dark chocolate & walnut brownie with mint ice cream - delish!

Today we decided to head into town to spend the remainder of my birthday money. It was sunny but so cold! Here's what I wore (wish I'd added more layers...)

Please excuse my frowny-face and the abundance of weeds in our front yard!!

Jacket - H&M
Top - Topshop
Jeans - Dorothy Perkins
Bag - Next
Shoes - Vivienne Westwood/Melissa
Sunglasses - Dior

My fella wanted to get in on the OOTD action too - note his picture isn't cropped since he is a regular size unlike my midget-self!

Pretty much his entire outfit is from Topman since he works there!

We headed to Breadpoint cafe in chinatown at lunch and picked up a strawberry bubble tea, my first! It was a strange experience, think I'd choose a different flavour next time, has anyone else tried this?

We also got an abundance of delicious buns and cakes, traditional Sunday lunch and all that

Thanks to everyone who's left me a sweet comment over the past couple of days, I really appreciate them! I've invested in a proper camera so hopefully this little blog won't be totally filled with Instagram snaps very shortly and I can take some good shots of the new things I picked up today!

Hope everyone's had a lovely Sunday
