Hot Chocolate and Macarons

I love a good day out with my family. Whether it's to the cinema, shopping, or just a walk in the park, I love just taking time out from everything and spending a few hours with the people that mean the most to me (cringee).
Yesterday we took a little trip to our nearest town for a browse through the shops. Before attacking the shops and battling through the shoppers, we went to a little French themed cafe called The Kilted Frog. I had never been to this cafe before yesterday, but I'm now bursting to go back again! It had such a lovely atmosphere and the food was sooo good. 

The first thing that struck me when we walked in was how much it looked like an authentic French cafe (ooh la la). There were bowls of olives in the centre of the room and pain au chocolat's lining the walls, fair to say it was food heaven! 

It took a few minutes to get a seat as there aren't many tables in the cafe but we eventually managed to grab a table by the window.  

I ordered a triple chocolate muffin (as per) and a hot chocolate. My mum and dad also ordered some macarons for us all to share. 

*inserts as many photos as possible of a chocolate muffin to make everyone jealous*

The macarons we got were; Pistachio, Salted Caramel, Lemon and Raspberry. My personal favourite was the lemon one.

On the table we sat at, there was a little book called 'Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining'. It was absolutely jam packed with inspirational, uplifting quotes and I now think I may have to order one for myself. 

This was one of my many favourite quotes in the book. You can buy it here for £4.99 if you'd like your own copy.

Hot chocolate, chocolate muffin and macarons demolished, we then set off to the shops and see if we could grab any last minute sales. I managed to pick up a few bits of clothing so if you'd like a clothing haul, please leave a comment.
I had a really great day and I really enjoyed spending time with my family. If you'd like to see more 'out and about' lifestyle posts, please let me know in the comments! This is the first proper lifestyle post I've ever done so I really hope you all enjoyed it.
