A Typical Summer Day in England

Monday, September 12, 2016


Hey All!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted something on my blog. Sorry! I’ve been busy working, exercising, and learning more about the immune system! There seriously aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.

It actually been nice to take a break from posting pictures of my most recent trip to the UK because it gave me a chance to actually enjoy the pictures once again in a different way while writing this post! :) 

Durdle Door has been on my Bucket List since pretty much forever. I guess it’s just unique to think of a beach when you think of the UK, because for me a city is what generally what pops into my head as the typical England image. I was pretty confused (don’t ask) when I saw Durdle Door on Pinterest, and I was hooked and it’s been on my Bucket List ever since. 

When I finally had my chance to visit Durdle Door I took it and I couldn’t have been happier that I did. I was actually really surprised at the beauty of Durdle Door as I approached it from the hill you have to walk down to get to this amazing beach.

I’m wearing one of the most amazing finds I have ever found on any high street store. It’s this amazing vintage looking blue dress from H&M. This dress sold out the first week it came out I believe, so I’m sorry there isn’t a link. Everyone thinks it’s a vintage dress, and I just nod my head and say that it is. I’m not going to tell them my H&M secret! Call me selfish, I don’t care.  :p

I was surprised at the fact that there wasn’t sand on the shore and instead pebbles. It added to the quirkiness of the beach and a great contrast to the white cliffs to the side of the rock formation of Durdle Door.

It wasn’t long before it started to rain on me, as usual, but it was warm rain. It wouldn't be a true English summer if it didn't rain.  It was an amazingly unique experience and I wouldn’t have traded it in for a sunny day! Being the girly girl that I am, I was slightly upset my hair was getting frizzy. Oh well. I was slightly mocked by a woman for wearing a sun hat on a rainy day. Little did she know I needed it to protect my hair.  People. So judgmental. 


All in all, it was a great experience and I encourage everyone to put this beach on your list of things to do when you visit the UK. A 10/10 experience for me, so hopefully it will be the same for you!

Much much much love,
