This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Summer Drink | Strawberry and Lime Spring Water

On a hot summer day when all you want is a refreshing cold drink. Try my strawberry and lime spring water.

This idea came to me when my niece who is two (going on three) decided that she doesn’t like drinking water any more.

I was looking after her and she was running and being a typical hyperactive toddler. She sat down to catch her breath and ask for a drink, so I got a cup of water. For her only to turn around to proclaimed that she doesn’t like water. I will admit I was surprised and after speaking to her mum (my sister in law) she told me that when she is at nursery or at another child minder house she is always given milk. So it kind of make sense.

Anyway as I didn’t have milk at that time and I couldn’t run down the road to get some, I came up with a clever idea. I had a packet of strawberry and lime with some cold mineral spring water. I came up with this Strawberry and lime Spring Water.

I will admit I always find it strange when people (not just my niece as she at that age when taste is a freckle things) say they can’t stand drinking plain water. I think cause I always drunk nothing but water from a very young water. My mum tells me this story every so often where I was just learning to talk (so a really young age), and she gave me a flask of water and apparently I came into the kitchen and my first words were – more. I grew up with parents not ever giving me soda fizzy drinks, they said it would rot your teeth. I was glad when I met Richard and he said he also grew up drinking nothing but water, so I didn’t have to pretend to like fizzy drinks.

I respect people who can’t stand the taste of spring water but it still puzzled me. So if you are one of those people who doesn’t like spring water. This strawberry and lime water is for you.

Here how to do this strawberry and lime water.

strawberry and lime spring water

  • A packet of strawberry
  • 1 lime
  • 1 bottle of spring mineral water. (you can just use tap water but personally I think spring mineral water taste better.)
  • A flask
  • Mint (optional)

strawberry and lime spring water

  • Chopped up some strawberry into bite size. Also cut a slice of lime. It optional to add a leaf of mint. Put all of the ingredients in the flask
  • Filled up the flask with mineral water.
  • Give it a good stirred.
  • (optional) Leave it for 2-4 hours for the drink to be properly infused with flavor.
  • Drink when ready.

And wholia, one strawberry and lime spring water. Not exactly rocket science but It refreshing drink to learn when your little is being picky about what they drink, or of you want a refreshing beverage at a summer garden party.

Let me know if you like the look of this and cheers everyone.

    Your drinks jar is absolutely adorable!! Perfect for the summer! I have always drunk water plain, I can’t even stand squash or anything like that, so like you I always find it strange when other people don’t like it! I’d love to try this recipe just out of curiosity though, it’s super aesthetically appealing with all the fruit too!

    I bet your niece would love the drink with the pretty fruit in it. Very colorful and something special her aunty made.
    I drank water and milk growing up. My grandmother would say “water! Lions thrive on it.”

    I love this and I have always naturally flavoured my water because I cant drink spring water either. Having bottled water a lot I can taste the chemicals in spring water so its juts nicer to add a but of flavour to it! x

    Ahh… such a refreshing drink recipe. Just perfect for summer

  • I like naturally flavoured water like this one you made, but I am a huge fan of plain water.
    Water was also something I always drank, and I also do not understand how people don’t like water. It’s so refreshing, water really is life!
    I’m that kind of person that has just finished drinking a cup of tea and then drinks a tiny bit of water to refresh the palate. This is an ordeal during winter, when I need a hot drink but I also need to drink water 🙂

    This sounds like a great idea!! Much healthier option than soda or (“cool drinks”) as we call them over here.
    I’m with you on the water drinking front though… I grew up drinking rain water, and it’s what I drink pretty much right through the day… it doesn’t even really have a taste, so I’m not sure why people don’t like it??
