Best Birthday Bits // The Peak District Pt.2

Welcome to part 2 of Best birthday Bits (read pt.1 here) I love capturing a new place especially when that place is old. I also have thing for photographing doors, I find it fascinating and beautiful to see the variation in them – in this village they have a wonderful eclectic mix – how cute is bridge cottage?

Fine dining attire

This beautiful M&S dress was bagged in a local charity shop for just a £1! courtesy of my mum. Don’t be ashamed of secondhand clothing, if anything you should be proud to give to charity – to be more sustainable with your shopping choices. I swear even if I was a millionaire, I’m sorry I mean WHEN I am 😉 you’ll see my in British Heart Foundation raiding the pound rail 😉

Also, think of it like this; if someone has passed away, surely they would like to know that their clothing is having new lease of life, being loved and treated right, not rotting away in landfill.

I would usually style this look with black or nude stilettos, however I thought my sock boots were more suitable for where I was dining.

My favourite meal in general is breakfast, the overall concept is great! I love the smell of coffee and toast, how significant noises sound from sensitive hearing first thing, along with the content feeling of anything possible happening in the day ahead. Jam, cereal, honey, orange juice, full english breakfast, porridge, smoothies and eggs of all kinds are just a few reasons why I love eating breaky! A somewhat unconventional breakfast menu at Samuel Fox Country Inn with smoked haddock and kippers being the stars of show, along with a different dish of fresh market fruit every day. The freshest fruit accommodated with the most natural bitter greek yogurt and not to mention, perfectly poached, sulphur dioxide free (IKR, as if thats a thing) eggs accommodated with a giant mushroom that tasted like it had been friend in litres of creamy butter. It really was the best way to start the day.

Streets of Castleton

Roaming the streets, the local pubs and just exploring in general is a part of every trip Jim and I do. I find it fascinating to see how people live, everyone has their own unique ways no matter how close to home – this place is only an hour and half drive from South Yorkshire (my current base and hometown)

Mam Tor hike no.2

Although there is a public stone path from the bottom to the top, Jim and I made our own route, we find it more exciting this way. Once you get to the top, you inevitably join the path, which we followed down the hill – people watching all along the way. People enjoying their daily jogs, kids playing in the snow, dogs entertaining all, not to mention people slipping and falling every minute, for everyones amusement… if they aren’t hurt.
