    A visit to the Botanic Gardens.

    When life gets you down, what do you do? See your best friend and have an amazing day out in your hometown.

    My friend Annie and I spent a Saturday in Oxford a couple of weeks back and we had the best day. We got ears pierced, drank cocktails, did a bit of retail therapy, and went to the beauuuutiful Botanic Gardens in Oxford - which are apparently, the oldest Botanic Gardens in the country.

    Sorry Cambridge.

    I've not been there since I was about 7 or so, so to go back with a pair of adult eyes was a bit of an eye-opener, to say the least. I can't believe I've taken this place for granted for so long!

    It's about a fiver to get in, and you can see some of the most incredible plants, flowers and fruit across their beautiful grounds and greenhouses.

    It's also right by the river, where - especially in the summer - you're bound to come across some punters, rowers and pedalo-ers. It's this time of time I love Oxford the most. Everyone comes outside all happy, and the city is just SUCH a nice place to explore.

    If you're going to visit Oxford, do it in the summer. It is absolutely the best.

    We spent about an hour/hour and a half there, but you can take a picnic and sit amongst the flowers if you want to make a day of it. It's really peaceful, so if you're a student, go for free and enjoy the peace.

    I won't ramble on, but will let the pictures speak for themselves. These are some of my favourite ones I've taken, so I hope you like them!
