Purple & Blue

The past two days have been spent with my wonderful friend Jenna. I've been waiting to spend some quality time with her for ages we spend most of the year apart as she's studying in Sheffield. So it's been fab to spend some time with her, now she's finally home. We are pretty renowned for having adventures, and generally do whatever the wind takes us and this meeting was no exception!

We decided, after a long thought provoking process, that we wanted to take a little trip - not too far as we didn't have the time by this point so, as J had never been and it's practically my second home, we decided to drive to Ely. I personally love Ely, it's quaint, gorgeous and such a lovely atmosphere, so it was lovely to do all the things i've always wanted to do but never had the time to (as the Mr lives there, i never like to drag him around the tiny shops etc!).

There's a certain shop in this little city that i've always eyed up:

Ely Beads is a gorgeous shop that is totally dedicated to beading, of all sorts. There window is adorned with a bead in every shade (similar to their header!), and they seem to sell every shape, size and colour - something for everyone! So, myself and J thought it would be a lovely idea to collect some beads (and elastic) for us to make our own bracelets, that would always remind us of the brilliant summer ahead of us! As it was nearing the end of the day we decided to put off our beading.. Until today, and this is our result!

We chose a gorgeous theme of blues, greens, turquoises & purples, and together it looks gorgeous! We have a lovely pair of matching bracelets that will always remind us of our brilliant summer!

I highly recommend Ely Beads, the beads range in price drastically - so you can make something simple, or a little more fancy! Ours cost £5 exactly and we have a beautiful mix of handmade glass, rainbow foiled, iridescent painted wood and plain filling beads. The woman we spoke to was very helpful and gave us lots of advice and help, on hand if needed! If you're looking for something a little different, and a little personal, i suggest giving Ely Beads a visit.

We spent the rest of our day, today, attempting (and failing) to bake American Chocolate Brownies (that actually turned out as Brownies Biscuits) and playing Just Dance 2 on the Wii - Now, if the Gym is not your thing (like me) then this is a brilliant way to work out and loose a bit of weight. It's fun, great exercise and you can sweat by yourself - what more could you want!
