Day with mother bear...

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day with my MUMMY! I don't get to see her often as we live quite far apart and neither of us are fortunate enough to drive (just yet!) so it was nice to have the opportunity to spend some time with her! 
I met her in Hull, where we popped to CaffĂ© Nero for a scrumptious coffee and cake date and a much needed catch up. How delicious does that Red Velvet cake look?! 
We then did some shopping (inevitably I bought more Lush stuff, I am now obsessed, oh no!) and headed back to my old home, my mummy's house!

It was weird being in the house I grew up in, and feel like a guest rather than a resident. And it got me to thinking how so much has changed in the last two years! I have moved into a lovely town, am engaged to the best person ever, and have a full time job that I absolutely love, so I have a lot to be thankful for and to be honest I owe a lot of it to my mum. 

I grew up on a council estate in Hull, and while it's definitely not the worst area ever, it still has this stigma of being full of chavs and deadbeats. And while me and my little brother didn't live in the biggest house in the nicest area, our childhood was not a bad one, very far from it! And that's all owed to my fantastic mother. We never wanted for anything, and always made sure we had nice things despite not being filthy rich. She's also instilled in us over the years that if we want anything we need to work hard for it and that it's not just going to fall at our feet. We bicker just as much as the next mother-daughter pairings and we are the total opposite of each other in nearly every way, but I will always be proud to call that little lady my mother.

A bit of a random post tonight my loves, but I was feeling sentimental and thought I'd take a break from all the beauty stuff for a day! 

Let me know in the comments what the best memories you have with your lovely mums too, I'd love to read them :)

As for me, I need to get ready for work!
Always, Alice x
