You know when it's summer, and you have one of those days which you wished would never end, cause it's just so perfect?
Well I had one of those...in March, craziness.
Yes we live in Wales, so any sun or warmth is a step up- but it actually warm! There were times when I actually only had a vest on (..and shorts and leggings haha) which is amazing.
My perfect day was a Friday, what other day eh? We had the day off from lectures, and me, my two best friends from CU and my best friend/flatmate decided we'd make the most of the sunshine and go for a walk. We didn't know it'd turn into an epic sightseeing tour of Bangor, but hey. It was perfect.
So here goes.
The plan was to walk up Bangor Mountain, yeah none of us had heard of it either, but we decided to find it. Turned out, it was up 'cardiac hill', yeah the name alone screams "you're gonna die whilst walking" and I'm not gonna lie, there was a moment when we were struggling...alot, but we made it to the top and found a golf course! Turns out Bangor mountain, is a glorified hill with a golf course on it! But was so beautiful. (a word you'll see a lot in this post)
That was the view from the top on one side, towards the mountains away from Bangor.
And that's the whole of Bangor. Bangor isn't a campus university, but you can get to any part of the university within 10 minutes walking it's so small. So it really is all of Bangor :) Beautiful eh?
When we were on the way down from the mountain, 2 dogs came running up behind us barking like crazy, now I'm not too keen on dogs, but my best friend is terrified, so you can imagine what happened. We were on a small path in a forest and these dogs cam behind us, and Zara jumped and literally lept into these bushes, weeds and thorns, and upon hearing her scream and the dogs, I proceeded to do the same aha. So we both ended up crouching in these bushes and all tangled up. Admittedly, we did laugh a lot about it afterwards, but we both ended up with cuts and bruises! I've got 2 massive cuts down my legs and Zara's arms are cut up. Oh dear haha.
From there we went to the pier! I've spoken about the pier before, it's gorgeous and so suited to Bangor! We sat on the end of the pier and watched the world go by, it was so peaceful and with the sun shining was just amazing.
Funny story to go with the above picture - we handed my friend the camera to take the picture, and he said "okay get together" so we were standing there waiting for the picture, and a young teenage chav walked past and said "eurghhhh" haha!
Behind us in the picture is the beach, and that was out next stop :)
We sat down and watched my friend skimming stones for at least an hour. we were sheltered by the forest behind us so it was really warm. We sat on the rocks and chatted, and it was bliss.
By then it was about 4pm, and we were hungry, so we decided to go back to out flat and have picnic outside on the grass. The day just got better, we had a blanket, curly fries and my best friends <3
So after out picnic, I decided to get out my cupcake cookbook and look through it (the one I won from Rachel's giveaway) and then thought the only way to make this day better was to make some cupcakes! So that's what we did :) We had chocolate cupcakes, they were yummy with melted hot chocolate in the middle.
This is what they turned out like :)
I was very proud!
To top off an awesome day - me and Zara went to a UV Headfone party, which was basically a silent disco and some people had UV paint on their faces and we had glow sticks, not particularly UV haha. It was so fun, we planned to match - yeah that's right, match haha.
It started out we were just going into town to buy a top which we didn't mind getting ruined in UV paint, and then it just escalated into buying the same dress so we could both match!
We didn't get too many weird looks whilst we were out either.
The night was relatively drama free, although lots of drunk boys around trying to get their own way! The silent disco is always fun, it's so funny to take off your headphones and listen to the person next to you sing their heart out really badly haha!
This is what I wore:
Dress: New Look Children's range
Tights: Peacocks flesh coloured x2
Necklace: H&M - See below
Me and Zara bought best friend necklaces, hers has the best on it :)
We matched :D
That was the best day in Bangor in a very long time :)
Have you been making the most of the summery days?
