Lifestyle | Hello Oxford
A few Sundays ago I met up with some other bloggers for a day out in Oxford. Once again I was my usual nervous self in the morning before we met up but once I was out in the glorious sunshine any fears soon went away!
I met Hanna first by Carfax Tower in the centre of Oxford. I hadn't been in the centre of Oxford for a few years now and had forgotten what a beautiful city it is.
Next we were joined by Charlotte, Becky and Mookie and a little later Patty joined us as well. Our first stop was Primark, now seeing as I had been there a few weeks earlier I told myself to be good and not buy anything! Of course that did not happen, a quick look at some cute head scarfs and shoes I was drawn in that deep Primark black hole!
After we all parted with some cash in Primark we then headed to All Bar One for some lunch, I would definitely recommend this as a place to eat if you ever visit Oxford, my burger and chips were super tasty!

It was then time for Hanna to meet her family and then head back to Finland so, we said goodbye to her and headed on down to Christchurch College. I had never been here before so was pleasantly surprised to see how lovely it was. As we sat on the grass, chatted and enjoyed the summer warmth, I sat back for a few minutes and thought how lucky I was to be sitting here enjoying the day with some wonderful ladies that I met through blogging. To find like minded woman that I can chat to and that understand the perils of chub rub or finding a decent pair of jeans means a lot to me. For years I had felt alone even though I had lots of friends they were all slim, shopping trips were difficult as we would only go into River Island or Topshop, every time I would buy the same thing, jewellery or a handbag, as I had around 50 bags this happened quite a lot!
We then started to make our way back to town, once again to say goodbye to a few people and then I stopped in Itsu with Patty to pick up some sushi before Mr C came to pick me up! It was a fantastic day, I can't wait to do it again!
