Strawberry Snaps: August

so summer's over :(
BUMMER
but that means it's autumn
WOOOOO

but before we start rejoicing over hot chocolate, tomato soup and cosy jumpers...
let's have a flashback at what happened in august

It was a month when:
Big Strawberry Sisters turned 25!!! pardy party time
the strawbs went abroad to venice (oh we wish we could eat pizza everydaaayyyy - oh wait, we did)
and we both discovered a secret passion for bagels! they're like the burger of lunchtime

Beat the Post-Holiday Blues

Serious life advice.
When you come back from holiday especially a pretty amazing one
you're gonna get 'the blues'
we have complied this helpful, handy guide to beating those bad boys

STEP ONE: eat you favourite comfort food (in significant quantities)
we advise Shake Shack burgers twice daily to be taken with milkshakes

IMG_7446

STEP TWO: go and see a feel good film
In our experience, Disney films work best

IMG_7445

please combine the above with doughnuts, chocolate and sweets

IMG_1840

STEP THREE: replace the hotel buffet with a delicious brunch
*please include pancakes for best results

IMG_7470

IMG_7478

STEP FOUR: make a pizza
our experience tells us pizza is the best medicine 

IMG_1948

STEP FIVE: visit somewhere that reminds you of the sights and smells of holiday

if you still have 'the blues' go back to step one and repeat.
failing that, it's time to book another holiday
