Three Things I Want to Try This Summer

With summer fast approaching I am starting to think about how I would like to spend my time. Seeing as we get about 5 weeks of sunshine a year I am determined to make 2016 the year I make the most of the sunny days! This summer I really want to be brave and try out some new things. Of course, I wasn't entirely sure what those were when I first turned thought to how to spend the season - however all was not lost! As a blogger I love to read other bloggers, so I decided to read some lifestyle blogs and get inspiration on new things to try and I am glad I did.

Go Somewhere New

Although I am not a keen overseas traveller I would like to visit some more places in the UK. One part of the country I haven't really explored is the North East so think that will be on my hit list. I have heard really good things about the area so I really think a long weekend is in order at some point. I also know some really good North East bloggers so I'd like to use this chance to hang out with them too!

Going on a Ghost Hunt

I have a bit of a fascination with the super natural world however sometimes I feel a bit too scared to read too much about it. However one thing I really feel I have to try is a ghost hunt. My sister went on one a few years ago and she really loved it. I know without a doubt that I would be very scared throughout the whole evening but it would be well worth it - hopefully!

Afternoon Tea

I have been to afternoon tea before so I guess I shouldn't be including it in this list but I really want to try it again. There are some really unusual afternoon tea choices so I think I would opt for one of these. Whether that be served on a mini picnic table or unusual flavoured sandwiches something unique and quirky would be right up my street. I intend to visit London for a few days in August so I think I will make afternoon tea one of my must do things while I am there.


This summer what I really want to do is spend more time doing things for me. While I know I will be working lots of hours I would love to make up for it by having a good time on my days off. There are so many new things to see, do and try that it would be really fun to be able to experience these. I have decided to include more lifestyle posts in my online writing so it would also be a fantastic way to expand my horizon and write about more than just plus size fashion - so watch this space!
