July in Instagram


Another month, another Instagram update. I've done these for a number of years now. I love having a quick look back on the month and to kinda just say, hey I'm still here! Instagram is painful at the moment, an app I once loved is now incredibly difficult to grow and I'm fast falling out of love with it so, if you're not following, just search alicespake or click the icon on the right. Stupidly, it would mean more than you realise...


  • July kicked off with another new restaurant opening in Southampton. We're going to try Kupp properly next week, it's Scandi inspired and I'm so looking forward to all the smoked salmon. 
  • I headed to Chichester to meet my lovely friend and blogger, Holly for a day of lunch, cake and shopping! Turned out to be such a hot one but I had the best time and I can't wait to see her again, hopefully in Brighton with a little one in tow.
  • I was invited along to The Dorchester with Asda's Little Angels for afternoon tea and a pregnancy massage, my perfect blog event. I've been dreaming of these scones ever since. 
  • I have a new found love of Watermelon. The pregnancy cravings could be worse I suppose! 
  • Celebrations were in order for my oldest friend's baby shower, we're both having boys due two weeks apart and I'm so looking forward to coffee mornings with them. 
  • The weeks are very quickly going into single figures! It's nine weeks tomorrow until Splodge is due to make his arrival.
  • The house is starting to become very baby ready. The changing table is up, the pushchair is here and the Snuzpod is due to arrive any day now. It's all becoming very real. 
  • Look at that bump! I'm officially on maternity now so I've been making the most of new pyjamas, reading and relaxing before we become three. 
  • We celebrated my baby shower the last weekend of July and I had the best day! My mum and sister organised everything and the love and detail that went into everything was perfect. I can't wait to share more photos! 

How was your July? What did you get up to?
