'When in cambridge...'

Cambridge

To celebrate my 18th birthday, my boyfriend organised a surprise trip to cambridge to celebrate! Such a wonderful present and I loved it! In this blog post I'll be explaining what I did. 

Dress & Scarf: H&M

'When In cambridge... SHOP!' 

Highstreet.

Obviously on a visit to cambridge you're going to visit shops! I haven't been able to go into shops in sooooo long due to A levels and exams. Of all the high street shops Miss Selfridge and River Island are on top form! Here are some of my favourites I found in Riverisland...




I have to say with TopShop especially I was very disappointed. Now I don't know if it's just the stock they had in the cambridge shop, but It's very rare that I ever go into a shop and can't find one thing I like! 

The market.

I absolutely love the cambridge market. From cute trinkets, to great vinyl, to sweet stalls and even take a way waffles! The trinket shops are full of cute quotes for your walls, beautiful decorations that I just loved. Also near the market you can visit the 'fudge factory'... http://www.fudgefactory.org.uk  I had the sea salted fudge... and wow. Even just to visit for some taste testers! 







Light lunch?

We got a deal from www.groupon.com  Where we got a bottle of wine and their Nachos! I loved all the deco in this place. 

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Nachos! 




I loved ta bouche, the theme was right up my street and was just in general classy and a lovely place to stop for a bite to eat/a drink during your trip to cambridge! It was away from the 'hustle and bustle' and was lovely.  



Go punting! 

Such a classic and romantic thing to do when you're In cambridge! My boyfriend looked up punting online before we went and the cheapest he could find was £80!!!!!! I know. So when we were there we booked to go and it was only £10 each, which is very reasonable for a 45 min tour including being told about the history of the colleges in cambridge. Here are some snapshots i took. 



Have a cidre on the river like me! (Or wine)



Dinner: Where I dined.

This restaurant had mixed reviews online but we thought we would give it a go! One of the waitresses was a bit sharp but the other was lovely. The restaurant was an authentic italian and I did enjoy it. My meal was a spicy tomato pasta and my boyfriend had a seafood pizza which he raved about! 



So that's the end of my trip! The start to my birthday celebrations! Hurrah!
