Hello, you! I'm Soph - a 22 year old girl currently living in Liverpool, spending most of her time writing, taking photo's, drinking coffee & trying not to eat too much cake.

#bloggersleepover




6 bloggers, 4 days, 1 cottage and a whole lot of tea!

This is pretty much the only way to sum up last weekend. Oh, and photo's. SO MANY PHOTO'S.

(DISCLAIMER: THIS POST MAY CONTAIN A LOT OF THESE SAID PHOTOS. APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE.)

If you follow me, or any of the other lovely ladies below (and above!), you'll have probably noticed that we had a bit of a weekend away last week. We had an idea that we wanted to do something together, as we hadn't seen each other in FOREVER, and well, we all kinda needed a break. Emma had the best idea and managed to get in contact with Sykes Cottages, and after a lot of umming-and-ahhing and Google mapping over which cottage we loved the most, we settled ( I say we, I kinda left it to the girls and nearly set off going the wrong way on the day…) on Honeystone. An absolutely gorgeous cottage in the middle of the Peak District. 



So after a few weeks of getting way over excited, myself, Emma, Rhi, Lou, Kayleigh and Alex all headed off to keep each other company for a few days.
After a bit of an eventful drive (yes, I'm looking at you Tom Tom.) I managed to find the cottage, tucked away on a farm on one of those long and windy country lanes. It was pretty much postcard material and I think we all fell a little bit in love with the place… and well, the wine and chocolate that greeted us in the kitchen might have just helped. A little.
No, but seriously, I can't express how beautiful the cottage was. Everywhere was just spotless and not to mention each room was pretty much Pinterest worthy. And oh my goodness the views. No matter which window you looked out of,  we were surrounded by the most gorgeous views of the Peak District. I'd never visited the Peaks or visited a cottage with Sykes before, and if you haven't done either, I'd most definitely recommend it! *heart eyed emoji*. There's just something so relaxing about being in the countryside!


  

First stop? Sainsbury's. Okay, so I know this isn't the most exciting thing but girls' gotta eat! Once we'd loaded the trolley with pretty much anything and everything, it was back to the cottage for a cup of tea and cupcakes while we waited for Kayleigh and Alex to arrive. Then came Domino's, followed by more tea, and lots of girly chat before bed.


What better way to start your Saturday morning than breakfast in the sun?! Once we'd all had our obligatory morning cuppa (told you there was loads of tea…) we got ready and packed up ready for a picnic! We were literally a 5 minute drive away from the reservoir which we thought would make the perfect picnic location in the Peaks! Of course, we didn't actually eat anything for a good 15 minutes due to everyone taking photographs! It really was a good job we were all bloggers. Oh, and our picnic got invaded by ducks a good few times too. Luckily, Em and Rhi were on hand to tell them to shoo! ;)

Once we'd all eaten far too much, and after some convincing me to get back out of the warm car we'd sheltered in for a sec while Lou took some lovely outfit photo's, it was time for a walk down to the reservoir itself, for more fresh air, blogger chat and lots more photos. Obvs.
Once we were back at the cottage I think it was safe to say the fresh air had pretty much tired us all out! So the rest of the afternoon was filled with naps, tea, and all 6 of us sat blogging on the sofa's in front of the TV. Bliss.
Later in the evening, Alex had the fabulous idea of seeing if we could go and find the sunset, so we grabbed our jackets and drove a little bit up The Winking Man (it's like a big hill/rock/thing… you might wanna Google it for a better explanation!). Unfortunately, it was way too cloudy for any sort of sunset to be seen, so what did we do instead? Climb up the massive rock. Obvs. But do you know what, I had the most fun. I haven't done anything like that since I was about 10, and it felt so good to be having fun out in the fresh air again!



Thanks to Lou leading the way, and Emma for being brave and taking the first step, we ended up climbing to one of the highest points, and of course, we all took it in turns posing on the top, before having this cute group shot too.
Then it was back for some delicious pasta made by Rhi, before reminiscing on some fab 90's tunes and a mega long game of Cards Against Humanity. If you don't know what this is, you're probably best off Googling it. I'm not explaining it.



....SUNDAY MORNING BRUNCH. DELICIOUS! Once again, actually eating our breakfast was delayed by us all wapping out our cameras, taking photos of the food, re-arranging the food, we even moved the food to the breakfast bar for a different breakfast shot background, before finally caving and actually eating the stuff. We even had these amazing pancakes made by Lou to fill us up too! (If you want more pancake envy, head over to Lou's Instagram, she makes me swoon over pancakes in bed most weekends!)
Then it was nap time again. I ain't joking. Most of us were still pretty shattered, probably from all the fresh air and the night before, so a few of us headed back upstairs to bed! We're exciting people. We know… Once we were a bit more refreshed it was time for some more blogging! With the weather still being unexpectedly nice to us, we also made the most of literally having a house full of bloggers, and so it was outfit shot time! I have to say, taking outfit shots with a tripod just isn't the same as having your friends make you laugh behind the camera, and I had an absolute ball, both in front of and behind the camera for the other girls too. Here's a little bit of a peak (get it..? Peak district….? Never mind. I'll shush…) as to the fun and giggles we had;



What's Sunday without a Sunday roast!? …I say this, I don’t think I've had a Sunday roast since moving into my flat last year. I probably fail at being British because of this but I'm just not normally a foodie! Whether we normally love a roast or not, we couldn't not love Rhi and her cooking this weekend, as she did just this, and cooked a lovely roast dinner for us all to sit round the table on Sunday evening and eat! Aren't we civil! ;) Oh and did I mention the cake?! I didn't get a photo of the cake, but the left over pancake mix was whipped up into a sponge cake with hazelnut spread and blueberries on the top!
Unfortunately, Alex had to leave us at this point due to having work on Monday (sad face :( ) and we all missed her loads for the rest of the evening. So, we wacked on a film (and ate basically ALL the cake) and chatted until it was once again the early hours of the morning!
Monday morning was then filled with LOTS of cleaning, packing and last minute photo taking before it was time to say goodbye to Honeystone and head home!



I literally can't express how much fun I had this weekend, and I don’t think I've laughed, giggled or smiled as much in a long time. A few days away from everything, and a few days spent with some of my favourite people was definitely what I needed! Our weekend wasn’t exactly 'action packed', but it was just lovely, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

A massive thank you to Sykes cottages for having us, and to Propercorn, Urban Fruit, Metcalfe's Skinny, and Meridian Foods for supplying us with lots of yummy goodies to keep us going over the weekend!



If there was anything this weekend taught me, it's that living in a blogger house is now even more appealing. What dya reckon, should we make this happen?  ;)
