A Day in the Life - Breakfast, Revision, Cake & Shoes!

I started my morning by going out for breakfast with my mum at Waterloo Tea in Wyndham Arcade, Cardiff. We don't do this all the time but do love a little treat once in a while, and it gives us a chance to catch up as we often miss each other due to her work and travel, and my college and job. We always end up getting into really deep conversations when we spend time together which I love!

On this particular morning, I chose to have the french toast with poached plums, hazelnuts and crème fraîche, which was absolutely divine! My mum decided on the smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and malted toast, which she also said was gorgeous.

After breakfast, my mum went off to run some errands and I stayed in town. I absolutely adore Cardiff city centre and could honestly spend hours just wandering the streets and looking in all of the shops and arcades! I went to Waterstones as I was meeting a friend in the café, and spotted a big guide to Paris with lots of cute illustrations called Taschen's Paris, which I would just love to own as I adore everything about France and especially Paris! My friend Ffion snapped a photo of me posing with it.

Photo credit to Ffion for this super attractive photograph of me revising! We spent the afternoon chatting and going over our A level subjects as exams are fast approaching. I had a pot of tea and a slice of lemon curd cake, which definitely contributed to me surviving the copious amounts of work! We both had a little giggle when Ffion managed to spell "politics" without the "c", and I just had to embarrass her via Snapchat! (i'm jodievoss if you're wondering)

I decided to walk the half hour journey home as the weather was gorgeous, but when I arrived at my doorstep I realised I had forgotten my key which was a bit silly! Luckily, my dad was only round the corner watching my brother play in a tennis tournament, so he popped back to save the day.

When I finally got inside, I was super excited to find that my parcel from Shoe Zone had arrived! I adore these stiletto ankle boots* and they will be featuring in a post in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled! I spent the evening at work, which wasn't really interesting enough to document in a photo, but on a side note I am absolutely loving life as a working woman (finally!) I work as a waitress in a new restaurant called Fish & Field and I love the buzz of such a fast-paced environment, serving and talking to customers (as well as the pay!)

I hope you enjoyed reading about the kind of things I get up to on a "more interesting than average" day! Recently I have been spending an awful lot of time holed up in my house surrounded with mountains of revision, so it was really nice to have a bit of a change in scenery and spend time with some of my favourite people too!
