Let’s Travel to: Whitby♥

Happy Sunday Lovelies!

Hope you have all had an AMAZING weekend! If you follow my Twitter/read my blog .. you will know that I actually got my marriage registered this weekend (EEEEEEK!). It really was SUCH an amazing day … and it feels weird thinking that I am now a Mrs…my little brother said I am now officially old (wonderful ha!).

The last week at work just FLEW BY! I cannot get over how quickly Friday came round! I sometimes can’t believe how fast days just pass you by .. this is why I try and make the most of each of them! This was one of the reasons we took a last minute trip to Whitby last weekend! Anyway loves .. have a read on and I ‘ll tell you all about my trip there!

RIGHT ….. so my and my family were all just sat downstairs on New Year’s day .. when my husband actually came up with the idea of going to stay in a cottage for the weekend.. it really was a pretty random and last minute trip! We searched the internet and found a few cottages that had places for the next day … and the next morning my dad received a call that a cottage in Whitby was available with enough room for 8 of us (and a baby!)… so we loaded the cars with everything we needed.. and off we went!

It took around 2 hours to get there … and the cottage itself was AMAZING! I was kicking myself that I didn’t bring more outfits so I could take pictures.. as the background was STUNNING! Anyway loves.. speaking of outfits.. I will show you what I wore on the first day!

Now… we already knew the weather would be cold/windy/rainy… so my outfits were focused on keeping warm. I ALWAYS layer like a crazy .. as well as having an umbrella on me all the time (and it DEFINITELY came on handy on this trip hehe!).


So here was my outfit for the first day loves….


You have probably seen every single piece of clothing in other OOTD’s too ha! The tartan scarf and top are both from Primark and get SO MUCH WEAR! The over-sized black blazer is New Look .. but of course you can pick these up ANYWHERE. My boots are very old, and have now become my “walking boots”… they are SO comfortable and also kept my feet dry whilst walking on the beach! Of course… to add something to the look.. I added Rimmel’s 107, as you do :P. My bag is also from LYDC London (you have all seen it before too!)… it is just amazing at fitting everything that I need in AND keeping it organized (woop!).


So on our first day ….. we settled into the cottage, then went out to pick up snacks from the local Sainsburys, which was SO handy as it was only 2 minutes down the road! We then drove down to the marina and walked around the shops, picked up some fish and chips for dinner (how could we not!!).. and then headed back to the cottage! After… we played a few games .. and then as it got past midnight, my husband suggested we go out for a drive around Whitby. Now.. I don’t know if you have ever been.. but I found there was something SO EERIE about the whole place at night. The cottage that we were staying at was in the middle of nowhere, so it was TERRIFYING to go out alone when it was dark. The roads were SO QUIET and the Abbey looked SO creepy…. I can definitely see why so many people come here at Halloween! Anyways .. after our scary drive.. we came home and fell straight asleep!


On Sunday … we all had breakfast together, before going to see all the chickens that the landowner had in his gardens! My little niece is the biggest animal lover EVER.. so she definitely enjoyed this bit! Then we cleaned the cottage, packed our things up .. and headed to the beach! The beach at this time of year was FREEZING as you can imagine… but we still had lots of fun! We then drove over the marina again and stopped to get some fresh doughnuts/waffles, and then also drove up to the Abbey (which wasn’t as creepy during the day!). After, it was time to head back home… we stopped at York on the way for some food … as we were all starving by that time!

Quick look at the outfit for Sunday .. if you notice all I actually did was change the top HA! I did pack another cardigan, but didn’t like how it looked… so I stuck to my trusty blazer! I LOVED how comfortable I felt in both these outfits..  and think that this is the most important thing when you know you’re going to be doing lots of walking outside.


After stopping at York.. it took around an hour to get home.. we then unpacked, went to sleep.. and were all up for work on Monday ! PHEW … busy weekend ey!

So lovelies.. that was my overnight stay in Whitby! I am such a HUGE lover of last minute, spontaneous trips.. they make such great memories too! I definitely recommend staying in a cottage for a few days .. it is so nice to get away from life in the city and just have a few relaxing days, especially after the busy festive period!

Soooo … what am I doing for the rest of the day?I will be spending my Sunday writing up some posts, doing my laundry and just CHILLING out in my PJ’S before work tomorrow! Hope you enjoyed this little insight into my trip angels.. and do let me know if you have ever been to Whitby!

Have a fab Sunday … and I will catch you all in my next post!

Lots of love,

    What a spontaneous trip! Sounds like you’ve had a lot of fun. Congrats on your marriage! ♥

    How perfectly English this place is, babe 🙂 I would’ve loved to stay at a similar cottage, something it’s so nice to get away but then again, I struggle with complete silence at night lol. Having lived in a big city most of my life, even now when we are in the suburbs I feel like it’s too quiet at night. My NYC friends think I’m insane haha (as this is THE dream for them) 😀
    Anyway, you look so gorgeous, and finally woohoo, congratulations on making your marriage official. We are both old then lol.
