OK so Carrie really knows how to do birthdays. While most of us wrack our brains thinking of fun stuff to do, she sticks to the tried and tested formula of visiting Monkey World every year with her family. Job done. It's the perfect combination of doing something you're passionate about and helping a good cause (many of the animals have been rescued from living in horrible conditions). This year the four of us tagged along for the ride and even though I was missing the theme park aspect (why did I think their might be a rollercoaster somewhere) by the end of it I was fascinated by these complex creatures. I gave a few of them Creature Comforts style voiceovers and even ended up blowing kisses to one of them through the glass.

These photos were shot a few weeks ago when I was a keen member of the #notightsclub. Now I'm wavering slightly, sticking to culottes and longer lengths that don't make me seem quite so attached to Summer. I've had such a good time over the past few months that I'm sad to let go and get used to the reality of Autumn, but equally I'd like to kick my work ethic into gear and go all guns blazing until Christmas. It's nice to have a day out with friends every so often though, we spend so much time chatting in our thread online that it gets a bit overwhelming when we meet up, hence some of the silly photos. We're planning more trips together as a five so watch this space over the next few months!
