A couple of weekends ago, my lovely friend Tamsin invited me up to Ascot to watch the races. It was the very first time I had visted Ascot and I loved every minute of it. So much so that you will 100% be finding me at Royal Ascot next summer. It has such a lovely vibe and we had such a great day (despite the drizzle and cold!).
When I arrived, my first impressions were how huge the place is! I said it Tamsin that it felt like a small airport, especially with the Country Living Fair displayed inside. We grabbed a glass of wine and had a catch up, before placing our bets on our first horses. To be honest, I'm not a massive gambler but I thoroughly enjoyed the buzz of picking a horse and watching it run. We were jumping and giggling when some of our horses won, even though we didn't get a lot of winnings in return!
For lunch, we stopped for bubbles and a hot dog, it was honestly all we needed. Ascot is full of a mix of people, but the atmosphere was so enjoyable. Everyone was so well dressed (especially the guys!) and people weren't afraid to say hello when passing by.
I loved the day so much I vlogged it for my YouTube which you can watch below!
