CHIQUITOS & MR MULLIGANS
At the weekend, my boyfriend Solly came to visit me in Bournemouth and as always we spent the whole weekend eating lots of yummy food. We haven’t been out for a meal since Rome, so it was so nice spending time with him after a stressful January. Saturday night we went to Chiquitos. To start I had halloumi skewers and Sols had jalapeno poppers. As a main I had a beef chilli burrito and Sols had a BBQ fajita. All of it was so nice, we have been to Chiquitos before and they don’t just sell amazing Mexican food, but lush cocktails as well. It is hard to find a perfect expresso martini and they serve one!!

I wore a new dress that I bought from isawitfirst.com. This website is my favourite clothing brand at the moment. Everything they sell that I have bought so far is great quality and affordable.
After an amazing dinner we played indoor mini golf at Mr Mulligans. I have never been before but everybody raves about it. The layout is extremely artistic and eye catching but although it is a lot of fun, the game is extremely slow on a Saturday due it being so busy and having to wait for different groups at each hole. I would definitely go again but maybe only play one game. It is something cute and different to do on a date night.
Happy Monday everybody! I hope you all had a good weekend. I have a lot planned this week after an extremely quite week last week, I am excited to get back to my busy old self. It is when I am my happiest.
Please follow my new Instagram account – https://www.instagram.com/emilymaythorne/ – I am sharing lots of travel, photography and foodie pics which will hopefully grow when I become a lot more busy.
On the clear desk by my window I keep all my books, diary and other Uni bits and bobs. I keep my Sonic Bomb and I have a mini table where I keep lots of pretty flowers. These are actually all from Lidl.
This Ivy is from Haskins Garden centre which is also where I got the plant pot that it goes in. This stands on top of my Alexa Chung book, where I keep my JBL speaker and a cute little pumpkin from Lidl. The cactuses are from Ikea and my incense is from Glastonbury high street. On the end of this shelf I keep my nice perfume. Underneath is an electric fire place which actually doesn’t work, ahah!
Around the top of this wall opposite my window, I have stuck up all my disposable photographs that go years back. On the left is my full body mirror which is from the Range, my frame is also from the Range. The aloe vera is from Haskins garden centre and I love it! The cute little mirror I got from Asos and next to it I keep my lavender and coconut spray from Holland and Barrett.
In the corner of my bedroom is my double bed where on the sign I hang a Moroccan style spread which adds to the room completely. All my pillows and the blanket are from the Range.
Since coming back to University after Christmas I have completely redone my bedroom. I wanted to make it a lot more cosier so that I actually want to hang out in there rather than always in the kitchen. After adding lots of little bits I have made it a lot more comfortable and I absolutely love it.
This was after all the help of my lovely mother! 🤩
ROME: 31MM CAMERA PICTURES
Hello everyone! Its 2 days after my exam and I feel like I have absolutely nothing to do. I am trying to just chill and enjoy my time before starting new modules on Monday, but I feel so guilty doing nothing.

The other day I finally got my Rome photos from my Dads old 31mm camera printed so I wanted to share them all. I thought they would of come out a bit better but I am still learning how to use it. The style of these pictures are cute and old fashioned so I want to use the camera more.
I am seriously missing being in another country exploring, and I am missing my Solly since being back at University. I think it is time to book up some more trips.
I am currently sat in my living room, by the warm fire, stressing about my exam on Wednesday. I am the WORST at taking exams. I hate being put on the spot. After Wednesday I am free to do whatever and start a fresh in the Uni year. I am going to create my 2018 Highlights video, revamp my Uni bedroom, blog a lot more and hopefully get myself a part time job. I have a lot of things to pay for this Summer so I better start saving.
January is the worst month of the year, you believe that Winter is over because Christmas has ended when really it has just begun.

This is a picture from Solly and Is trip to Rome over Christmas. I have serious travel bug at the moment and can’t wait to get away again. February is the month for a placement search and I am hoping to find one in a European country to get away for a whole year. Nothing appeals to me more than living in another country and learning about a whole new culture.
I have just sent in my 35mm film camera pictures to be printed. 34 pictures just of Solly in Rome! I am excited to share them all and start using this camera a lot more.
A LITTLE CHRISTMAS TRIP TO ROME

A Tapa Tapa Evening in Barcelona
Here comes my non – stop pics of Solly and I’s trip to Rome. As I have said I took 3 different cameras – my phone, Olympus Pen Canon camera and a Canon film camera (which I haven’t been able to get processed yet) so I have a lot of content to share with you.
Sol and I only spent 3 nights in Rome, with only around 2 full days to fit in all the sites. When I say all the sites… there is soooo much to see! On the first day we did a hop on hop off bus all around Rome, just to get our bearings. The first stop was the colosseum which is was Sollys main site to see. We decided to get skip the queue and a tour, just because this is one of the main sites in Rome and yes it was so worth it! If you haven’t been, the colosseum is incredible and so much bigger than I imagined.
These are not just photographs from day one, but a collection of some of my favourites. We stuffed our face with pasta, pizza and a little trick for anybody going to a busy city, walk down the back streets… you will find a lot of cheap food and cute little restaurants. Solly and I used an app called ‘YELP’ to help us find the best places to eat and drink.
This was such an amazing experience for Sol and I but I can honestly say it has given me a travel bug, I WANT TO BE ABROAD 24/7 to the point my friend Kimia and I are organising a cheap trip to Berlin at the end of January, to celebrate the end of a stressful month. Where would you like to visit in the EU?
