Hello April

Oh April,

The month of blossom trees and daffodils, Easter eggs and lighter evenings.. the hope for Summer is just around the corner.

Hello Spring!

April, to me, signifies the end of Winter – long gone (we hope) are those dark, gloomy evenings and dull days.. I say as I write this with a grey, overcast sky looming outside the window, but it’s just a one off.. right?

I’m so ready for evening walks with blossom scattered across the ground, daffodils framing the path, and being blessed with the sun actually setting.. after 7pm!

I’m eager for mild days spent without the fright of stepping out of the door to the ghastly chill of the wintry weather. Days spent without ten thousand layers on, are incredibly welcomed.. my arms are open and my winter coat is … definitely not being stored away until next year (yet), but one can dream!

I’ve spent most of this month so far in Wales – both with my family, and Ollie’s, which has been lovely! Can anyone ever complain when the sea is minutes from the door?!

I’ve also got a few family Birthday’s this month, and I’m off Uni until the 16th, so happy days!

We’re off to Alvor, Portugal next week, for a 4 night break, so hopefully the sun will make a well longed for appearance. (Please keep your fingers crossed for us!) There’s some great caves in the area that I’m hoping to go and see by boat, depending on whether the boat trips are running in April (?) .. We’re also right on the beach, and although I’ve got no expectations for the sea being idyllic at this time of the year, I’m super excited to spend time on the beach. Ollie’s actually been to this resort before, so they’ll be no unpleasant surprises, and it means we’ve got an upper hand on knowing the area before arriving.

Let me know what your plans are for April!
.. Or have any of you been to Alvor before? Let me know!

All my love as always,

Hello, you!

Hi, I'm Beth I'm so glad to see you here!

For as long as I can remember I've kept a diary, journalling about the most riveting of topics ranging from Middle School crushes to the far-too spicy fajitas I'd had for dinner the night before.

I've always had a love for documenting every bit of my life - seemingly even the most mundane of experiences - alongside taking photos. You'll rarely see me without my camera in hand, or without a notebook and pen within easy reach.

This blog [Oh So Rosy] was born to curate a space where I can blend both passions together. The name was created after a lengthy brain-storming session in bed one morning. In short it encompasses a fierce positive perspective, to see the 'silver-linings' in each situation and to keep those 'rose-tinted' glasses firmly on.

Around here you'll find a mix of all things I love and snippets of my life. Whether that be adventures around the world; new recipes and home interior; or current thoughts and day-dreams.

I'm still very much trying to figure things out (isn't everyone?) in this weird yet insanely wonderful life, so I invite you to follow along this journey with me.

Wishing you a lovely day. Thanks for popping by.

Love, Beth ♡
