Missguided Peace + Love Collection and My Picks

Missguided, you have got it so right! 
I was just doing my usual browsing rounds, just seeing what's new on the online retailers and stumbled across Missguided's new Peace + Love collection. They have revamped their previous range to include some amazing leather and bondage inspired pieces.

The majority of the collection is dark textured pieces, which is very on trend for Autumn/Winter. 

Here is what I purchased...

Lara Croc Panel Midi Dress - £40

Cate Organza Trim Strappy Mini Dress - £35

These two dresses will be perfect for nights out leading up to Christmas. They are a tiny bit more expensive than Missguided's usual dresses but still under what you would pay in Topshop.

You can view the collection here: Peace + Love

Trip to Conwy Food Festival/Gwledd Conwy Feast

Luckily North Wales avoided most of the stormy weather that hit the UK last weekend. My family and I headed along the North West coast to the historic town of Conwy. It's two main attractions being the castle and the harbour, and the Conwy Food Festival, or Gwledd Conwy Feast, was located in between both of them.

We arrived and bought wristbands to gain access to the tents and cookery demonstrations. The focus was on local produce, this included fresh fruit and vegetables, good quality meat, (us Welshies are proud of our lamb and beef), and of course fresh fish as the town is located on the coast. Chefs demonstrated and created meals to crowds in the first set of tents, we stayed to see a talented chef created a fish stew and a lamb curry, it smelt delicious!

The harbour were another set of tents were stood was packed full of people enjoying the food and the views.
Farm yard animals in the produce tent made a perfect photo opportunity!

Stalls lined the tents, filled with delicious cheeses, beverages, meats and bakery goods. Of course, I went for the biggest cakes I could find and sampled all the cheeses I could!

These beasts were from a stall called The Little Round Cake Company. The double chocolate had my name all over it!

I had a wonderful afternoon out with the family, enjoyed the food and adored the surrounding scenery that the festival was set up amongst.
