An afternoon in Bath, Somerset

An afternoon in Bath, Somerset


Happy Friday my loves, how are you? I hope you are having an amazing day. I have just realised that you are on your summer break now which means, if I work really hard, I could get more posts out for you!

Today’s post I am super excited to write up because it’s been on the cards for a very long time. Before I start, I would like to say that this blog post is a review on the Cottonbagco “❤️ Bath” bag that I was very kindly gifted. I will leave a few links to their website and social media’s after the post. For now, let’s head to Bath.

I ended up going to Bath on what has been recorded as the hottest day in the UK, which was very stupid of me! Luckily it wasn’t quite the 39 degrees that London found themselves in, but walking around in the blazing sun, I still had a temperature of 33 degrees.

Bath is a gorgeous place and I am at some point going to head down and make a full day of visiting at some point, but my afternoon just walking around the Abbey and stopping off to look at a few stalls on the way was enough for me. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I was able to say a prayer for someone I lost recently and light a candle for her in the Abbey.

I took my “❤️ Bath” bag with me because I wanted something light weight to carry my purse, water and other handbag essentials, just without having to carry a handbag.

Can you see how lightweight the bag is?

I took a few pictures of the bag in the Abbey too.

After a long walk around we decided it was time to make our way back to the car and head home so we didn’t all burn. On our way we found some cute little shops and some stalls that had some pretty cool hats. We decided to have a little fashion show trying on different styled hats (I do not suit hats, Jack on the other hand really suits a trilby). We stopped by a quirky little cafe to buy a drink too, that’s where I found this cool chair!

I love things that are a little different and Bath is full of them! I cannot wait to go back and visit.

What I think of the Cottonbagco ❤️ Bath bag

I actually really liked it! It was super lightweight, the handles are long enough for me to put the bag on my shoulder and it was able to hold everything in without it feeling heavy or without it changing the shape of the bag.

The bag isn’t super harsh material either which is fantastic because I cannot stand canvas type bags that are hard and scratch at your skin.

I had never been to Bath before and so I was very impressed with the design that’s on the bag. Walking around, I saw the bridge that is beautifully printed onto the bag, the Abbey (which is my favourite place in Bath so far) and it’s also added the park into the design.

I know that Cottonbagco have other designs so I’ll leave a link to all of them and to their social media channels here for you.




I couldn’t find a direct link to purchase a pre-made bag so I’m not too sure if you can actually purchase these yourself directly from them, but here is their website, they have an email address so if you are interested, feel free to send them a message. Here it is Cottonbagco.

Thank you all so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed my post, if you have, be sure to let me know by leaving a like and comment below. I’d love to see any of your reviews if you have worked with Cottonbagco before?

I’m heading home today so a new post will be live on Monday.

Until then,

Sending you all my love,

    Wow 33° is warm! I think the highest we’ve had here in Ireland is still in the 20’s and I can’t even handle that. Love the bag! Glad you had a good time in Bath. I last went there when I was 13 as my uncle used to live there and I remember thinking it was lovely and liking the hustle and bustle of it as it’s very different from where I live. Great post as always! 😊💖

      Oh how I’d love to just live day to day in the 20° heat! Thank you so much my love. Do you think you’ll visit Bath again? ❤️

        I hope so one day, I remember on one of the days we traveled out to Cheddar Gorge and I loved going through the cave with a walkie talkie (It was the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done 😂). I’d like to go on a history tour or to the Roman Baths as we didn’t really go into anywhere like that only walked by it on the way to other places. The winding streets of shops were so magical (I wouldn’t know where to start if I went back! 😂)💖
