It's Raining, it's Pouring...

A day out in Cambridge
Yesterday was spent perusing the higgledy-piggledy cobbled streets of Cambridge, and trying to hide from the torrential downpours under shop covers. It was my second time in Cambridge, I visited earlier this year whilst on my Easter holiday, it's such a lovely city(?), I love the stonework and architecture, it reminds me quite strongly of Bath, does anyone else think that? Me and Alessio found a traditional English-style tearoom called Harriet's, where I had a much needed cup of tea to warm me up after the rain, and as it soon after changed quite dramatically outside (forcing me to remove my mac), I bought a Salted Caramel ice-cream. I keep seeing Salted Caramel recently, particularly on Taza's blog Rockstar Diaries, and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. And wow, did I make the right decision, it was so delicious, with a slightly salty tang that just stopped it being too sickly (and made it a lot easier to eat!).
I've had some good news this week, with my second placement this summer with the Daily Express starting on Monday! I've been sent a list of the sort of jobs i'll be expected to complete, and as it's quite a bit different to my last placement, I'm really excited to get started and see how they compare.
Today i'm going to be meeting my best friend, Ash, for a catch-up over Byron's burgers and chips. I haven't seen her in such a long time so it's going to be lovely to find out all about her recent trip to New York!
Hope you're all having a lovely week so far,
Love, Charlestown xoxo.

P.S. Thank you to my boyfriend Alessio for these photos!

  4. I love Cambridge! Did you see that there's a fudge kitchen nearby King's Cathedral? They always have free samples, which my friends and I feel it would only be polite to test. I last went in January, so avoided rain, but it was rather chilly. Maybe going punting wasn't our best decision as we were shivering despite our costa hot chocolates. Hooray for your (beautiful) umbrella! xxx

  36. Stunning, you look fantastic - really liking those loafers! I've been looking for some comfortable ones, I don't know about you but whenever I ditch the socks/tights shoes just seem to automatically rub me which is a pain in the backside!

    Cambridge looks picture perfect and that ice cream sounds delicious. Never heard of salted ones before.
