I know, it’s horribly sacrilegious to mark such an occasion with a trip to the axis of capitalism but it had to be done, the thought of the new Christmas drinks had been robbing me of sleep!  We finished off our Bonfire Night celebrations with a trip up the road to Winchester which holds an annual torchlit procession through its ancient streets, followed by the biggest bonfire I’d ever seen!

Here’s some photos from Saturday night.

Incase you’re wondering… the new Praline Mocha drink is yumm-o, Leila’s stuck on the babyccinos like an old lush and Mr. L thinks that Toffee Nut Lattes are over-rated (insert gasps here).  Oh, and the cakes in the first photo?  Figment of your imagination 😉

Hope your Bonfire Nights went off with a bang!!

* what a difference a year makes!

  1. Charlotte, what gorgeous photos! And an amazing bonfire… the one we went to didn’t even HAVE a bonfire! What is all that about? Good to see your little one enjoying it – ours fell asleep on her dad’s shoulders, which made for some very cute photos. Impressive sleeping skills too, with the all the bangs.

    • How on Earth did she stay asleep? L was horrified by it all to begin with before curiosity got the better of her! Sucks that yours didn’t have a bonfire – it warms everyone up a bit! xx

    Excellent photos! Thanks for sharing – and I love Starbucks!

  3. Maria says:

    Vow! Lovely photos! My faves are the starbucks ones! :))) Huge fan of their Christmas drinks!x

  4. Charlotte, you really do take the most amazing photos. Thank you so much for sharing. Leila is such a cutie!
    Jx

    Awww little Leila is all grown up now! Time flies fast eh?
    I superloved Mr L. and Leila’s photo together (second one from the bottom).

    • It genuinely frightens me how quickly she grows. Two years is no time at all and look at what’s happened in that time!

      Yeahhhhhh, that’s my favourite too, I was considering a little canvas for her bedroom but my husband hates it… well, he loves the sentiment but says “what the hell is that old man line down the side of my mouth” LOL

  6. Kylie says:

    I don’t think baby L could be ANY cuter, even if you tried.

  7. Kim says:

    Aww Leila looks so cute! I swear you have the most beautiful kid in the entire world! Bonfire Night looked fab xx

    • Thanks Kim! I know I’m programmed to think that… although, tbh – when she was born, I remember being mildly disappointed that she was a bit of a weird looking newborn. Haha, mean mum. xx

    Tried the praline mocha over the weekend and lurrrved it. Need to get my hands on the toffee nut to see what all this over rated nonsense is about!

    • Lush innit!! Did you SEE how mean the Barista was with my chocolate sauce though? I lurve the taste of the eggnog one too but it’s just too sickly… maybe I should stop buying Venti sizes LOL

  9. Amy says:

    Charlotte your photos are always so beautiful! I am jealous of your skills!

    Mmmm Starbucks- gorgeous photos. And the bonfire night looks fun! I hope Leila wasn’t scared by the fireworks- I still get scared to this day- am so jumpy!x

    • She was proper scared for about 40 seconds and then curiosity got the better of her! Can’t believe you get jumpy! Noooo, embrace it (unless it goes on till midnight, then you start throwing things at people)

  11. Jools says:

    Leila is adorable as always and your pics are amazing. All the drinks sounf fab bit we don’t have a starbucks insert gasps here lol

  12. Linda says:

    lovely pics
    are they straight off the camera, or did you do post editing? I just love the tone of the photos.

    • Hi Linda,

      Thanks!

      The Starbucks ones have been colour toned… yellow in the highlights, pink in the shadows to make them feel warmer and to get rid of the horrible indoor lighting.

      The outdoor ones haven’t been altered bar the obvious b&w conversions xx

    Lovely pics 🙂

    I had a Creme Brulee latte from Costa yesterday, dreamy!

  14. […] to see the fireworks this bonfire night.  Last year, I was a bit more organised and we went to the big display in Winchester – which I thoroughly recommend.  This year, after a quick shout-out on Twitter, I discovered […]
