Summer Picnics









Loads of you listed picnics as your favorite thing to do in summer, I have to agree! Picnics are pretty amazing. There's nothing better than lounging in the sun with your bestie and some yummy food!





Usually I would bake for a picnic but it was just too hot and beautiful outside to bake. I did make some chocolate strawberries, I used the big bars of chocolate from Sainsbury's that are less than 30p each and taste lovely, bargain. Adding a little oil to the melted chocolate gives it a nice sheen as well. Just melt the chocolate, dip the strawberries in and lay them on some baking paper in the fridge to harden. Voila! I made some white chocolate raspberries the same way.







We also scoffed a huge bag of the Natural Confectionery Company dinosaurs. They are actually amazing, and Sarah and I find them hilarious since we took a trip to London one time to see Tori Amos and the show was postponed so we spent much of the evening filling ourselves with dinosaurs to cheer us up.





And just for fun, here's what I wore! We went into the tropical ravine for these photos, big mistake! It was so clammy I could hardly breathe. Pretty, though!
