Strawberry Shortcake

Summer is tragically coming to an end. It's been an amazing one, I've had the opportunity to travel to France, England and Germany and make some unforgettable memories. As much as I'm sad to see Summer end, I'm also excited for the Autumn months; forest walks with my pup, a dramatic increase in the consumption of hot chocolates and ditching the crop tops for big comfy sweaters. I hope all you lovely people who take the time to read my blog and support me have had an amazing summer and I hope you will all continue reading :)
