Hello Loves,

I do love getting away even if it's for one night. I find it just relaxes and refreshes my mind. Last weekend my family, boyfriend and I went to Oxford for a little get away. The reason why we went is for my dad to watch football but my incentive was going to visit Bicester Village Outlet- DESIGNER SHOPPING TIME!!

We left bright and early on the Saturday Morning so we could stop for some breakfast on the way. We had a classic fry up at a service station about halfway to Oxford- oh it was delicious by the way! We arrived in Oxford at about lunch time which gave us plenty of time to find our bearings and check in.

We was staying in the heart of Oxford itself in the Wadham College which is part of the University. The grounds themselves were amazing and had so much history to them. There was a couple of different sections to the college but we was staying in one of the rooms on the college sites. The rooms was not something you would expect; they were spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you would find in the hotel.

Oxford is an amazing city with so much to do. So if your looking for history, culture or just a spot of leisure then it has it all. Saturday evening was a kind of 'go with the flow' and we wasn't sure where to eat or drink. We found a cute pub to start with called the King's Arms which was full of character but with that classic touch. We decided to eat in Byron Burger for dinner which might I add say was INCREDIBLE. Obviously we went all out with nachos, chicken wings and a freakshake as well as the burger so we was STUFFED by the end.

Breakfast on the Sunday was delicious too. It consisted of a buffet breakfast in the 400 year old dining room which was something I've never experienced before. There was so much to choose from; cereal, pastries and of course a cooked breakfast.

Before we went home we stopped at my favourite place...Bicester Village- the designer outlet of dreams. Now I went in not 100% sure what I wanted but after browsing the shops I realised I wanted a Baby Pink Cross Body Bag. I looked in so many shops including Coach and Kate Spade but Ted Baker did me proud and I found the ONE. The most beautiful baby pink bag- The Amora Camera Bag in dusty pink. With the outlet being end of line a lot of things you find is not available on the websites or in stores but here is  a camera bag from Ted Baker which is as close as I could find to mine.

All in all it was such a well needed weekend away with my loved ones and it's something I will be doing more often. As for Oxford I will 100% be going back very soon!

Have you been to Oxford before? What do you recommend doing there?

Lots of love Chloe x
