Happy New Year Everyone!
I cannot believe we are into yet another year! It doesn’t feel like two minutes since i was complaining how slow last January was going! Its crazy but I’m very fortunate to have had an amazing 2018!
I travelled! Nowhere far but I visited a new country and i got to do it with my closest friends. I went back to my favourite city twice and celebrated my 21st whilst there! 2018 was full of fun and spontaneity! There was some huge highs and some really low, lows in the past year and whilst i know very well that no year goes by without ups and downs I’m hoping 2019 will continue to be the same with a little more positivity, and few more milestones in there.
Happy Christmas Eve Everyone!
I cannot believe how quick this year has gone and how amazing it has been! There have been so many ups and downs, high and low points but I wouldn’t change it at all as it’s made me such a stronger person!
With Christmas looming ever so close now I thought I’d switch it up a little. This morning I was flicking through Pinterest and found LOADS of Christmas themed wallpapers for your phone! They are all so so cute so I thought why not share them to give your phone a little Christmas spirit to help you get in the festive mood even more!!

SO, I’ve been trying to write this blog post for a while since i came back from London just over a week ago actually and i haven’t been able to decipher my favourite moments from my weekend away. For those who read my last blog post, i went down to London with my closest friends for my 21st birthday and it was honestly the most amazing and fun weekend.
We travelled down to London on the train in the early evening and my friends surprised me and brought two bottles of wine and a bottle of Prosecco!! Its safe to say that all three bottles went down far too nicely and it started the weekend wonderfully!
When we got to London we headed straight for our hotel to get checked in and we stayed at the beautiful and amazing, Hilton London Metropole! Its right near Hyde Park and it was located just opposite a tube station which made travelling round London so much easier! The hotel was gorgeous and huge! There was 3 different wings to the hotel! We stayed in the West Wing because we stayed in a bigger room, which was one of the nicest hotel rooms I’ve ever stayed in.
The hotel really was gorgeous and our room was so spacious! We decided to stay in on Friday night as we didn’t get to our hotel till around 8.30pm so we put our pyjamas on and got Dominos delivered to our hotel room which was just so weird but so good! Never before have i had dominos ordered to a hotel room so it definitely was an experience!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend last weekend and managed to grab yourself some bargains in the Black Friday sales! This week’s been a bit of a crazy one with the amount of uni work i’ve had get done before i head off to London this weekend with my girls for my 21st birthday trip! My to do list has been a mile long and i’ve only just ticked everything off, so i thought i’d do a little blog post with an update of my week and the bargains i got during last weekends black Friday sales.
First on my to do list this week was to finish off the first of my 4 essays. I’ve been trying to write this for the last few weeks and i just haven’t been able to concentrate on it due to trying to finish the draft of my literature review that was also due in.
However, i’ve finally got it done and 1500 words later i can relax a tiny bit. It feels like a lifetime since i last wrote an essay this short for uni but it was nice for it to be shorter and to not be stressing over a 3000 word essay for a change. University so far has been a struggle. Third year has definitely been kicking my ass but i’m getting there.
I’m finally back after taking an unannounced social media break..
The past few months have been a little bit hard. I began my third year of university and since then it has been a whirlwind. Starting a dissertation, taking on a placement and working nearly 30 hours a week has been a struggle to say the least. Life got stressful and in all honesty blogging became something i just put aside for a while. All social media was put aside, I took a break from both twitter and Instagram, as well as anything that became a distraction.
I think in some ways I fell out of love with my blog. When i started this blog I got so wrapped up in the idea of my blog having to be perfect and exactly like other peoples, that I found myself not being me. I was forcing idea’s that I wasn’t even sure of just in order to keep posting regularly and it just wasn’t me. I have so many ideas and thoughts that I want to share, even if that means there is no definitive theme to my blog but I’ve been scared because everyone seems to have their shit together if I’m honest. Although the blogging community is one of the most supportive communities I’ve ever been involved in, its still scary to go off and do your own thing, especially when you rely on those within that community to read and share your blog.
Taking this break from all social media has really been something I needed and it’s given me time to reflect on who I am, which is crucial when trying to figure out what it is that I want to be posting about and really allowing my blog to be a reflection of me, without being fearful of what people may think.
