Things I Want To Do This Summer

Long time no see my Lovelies,

During a rather hot and sticky run this morning (YUCK!) I started thinking about how I would like to spend my time this Summer.  After 5K I had compiled a pretty good list of things that I want to do; instead of jotting them in my diary I thought I would pop them up on my blog.  It's the perfect post to re-start my three day a week blogging schedule as well as give you Lovelies some ideas for fun Summer adventures.

Long and lazy Summer picnics
As you may already know I love nothing more than a good picnic.  A hamper full of yummy food, a blanket and a spot of sunshine = Summer perfection!  

Watch the sunset somewhere pretty
This is a tad cliché but everyone loves a good sunset!!!

Go camping/glamping with friends

I have to admit to not being a massive camping fan, but glamping is my cup of tea (in a bone china teacup!) all the fun of sleeping under canvas but with all your home comforts to hand!

Lots and lots of alfresco eating

I LOVE good food, and enjoy nothing more than eating a scrummy meal outside with friends or family, then sitting and chatting as the sun sets and the stars appear.

Explore new farmers markets

Again about eating!  

Make lots of healthy ice lollies

I've given up all of those nasty processed sugars, so my Summer treat to beat the heat is my Blueberry Cream Ice Lollies they are super yummy but I want to put my thinking cap on this Summer and come up with some different flavours.

Run more!  Twice a week isn't enough

I'd love to start running more, I run 5K pretty comfortably, but would love to be able to run at least 10k without collapsing in a heap!

Organise summer adventures with my friends

I love a good adventure, last Summer we discovered Steephill Cove and gorged ourselves on fresh crab!  For this Summer I am in full planning mode, so stay tuned, as I will definitely pop them up on the blog.

I hope you are all enjoying the amazing weather (and making the most of it), I'd love to know in the comments what plans you are making for this Summer.



  1. Haha I'm hating running in this heat but I'm doing the race for life at the end of the month so need to keep up with it. Healthy ice lollies and picnics are on my list too, I'm hoping to fit in a few weekend city breaks to Europe as well :)

    1. So so so sorry for the super late reply, running in the heat is never fun! xx

  2. I love picnics! It's been so long since I've had one! That'd be fun! Great post! :)

    1. Picnics are the best, I love a bit of al fresco dining! xx

  3. These are all great ideas! Especially going on picnics and finding new farmer's markets.
    Also your blog design is looking great - loving it! :)

    1. Thank you lovely, my blog has definitely taken a back seat this year, so I thought the poor thing was in need of a pick me up! xx
