Weekend Getaway: Durham, North Carolina

Last month, we hightailed it over to Durham, North Carolina (that's in the US, folks) to throw my sweet big sister a baby shower. North Carolina is the state in which I was born, the state in which my sister and more recently, my mother, live, and the state we plan to move to post-London.

It's a lovely state, that North Carolina. Beautiful as all get out, relaxed, friendly, and super happening, too. We were there for just a few short days but we sure did make the most of it. Here's what we got up to:

The KokyTu from Cocoa Cinnamon. A triple ristretto espresso over iced cane sugar Mexican Coke. WOAH. 

Sunglasses similar to this Urban Outfitters pair. 

A baseball game at Durham Bulls Athletic Park

Naturally, took a selfie at the game. 

Striped shirt is similar to this one from Need Supply Co., sweater is J.Crew, lip color is gone

This room was originally a front porch and has more recently been converted to an extra bedroom. The folks who did the renovation kept the external siding on the walls even though it's now an indoor room. Isn't that neat?

And here's my sweet sister! Isn't she so cute?

This, in case you're feeling a little cheese ball today.
