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.

Miami to Orlando

A Tapa Tapa Evening in Barcelona

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 love u & the city

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS TRIP TO ROME

A Tapa Tapa Evening in Barcelona

Zugspitze Mountain

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?

ROME 2018

Today, Sol and I arrived home from 3 nights in Rome. I decided to take Sols to Rome for his 21st birthday and Christmas present, in between Christmas and New Years as it is an age to celebrate and when you are nearly 5 years in there are not any more jumpers or perfumes I could buy him. Rome is a very exciting city – I couldn’t even begin to describe how busy we have been. From the Colosseum to the Vatican to the Trevi Fountain, there is not enough time in the day to see everything. BUT… we did it. In just 2 full days we saw everything we wanted too.

HOLA BARCELONA

Mini Golf & Pizza | Puerto De La Cruz

This is just the beginning of the amount of photos I have taken. I took my phone, my Canon camera and my dads old Canon film camera. I love the way film cameras come out and I am so excited to get them developed. Italy is a very beautiful country and hopefully I have captured it the best way I could.

So, after 4 days of pasta and pizza it is now New Years Eve. How quickly is time going? January is going to be a stressful month for me. From January the 1st it is time to give myself a kick up the bum. University comes first! I have waddled along for too long and I will be beating myself up if I don’t get my act together. That is not just with University, but also with money and my fitness. My only New Years resolution is to PRIORITISE – and this is with absolutely everything!

NEW FOREST CAMPING

I haven’t been doing a lot recently, bar University work and seeing my friends. I have turned extremely lazy since coming back to University due to my timetable being very empty as they want us to do independent learning. After my weekend at home for my friends birthday tomorrow I am going to start a fresh on Monday. It does not make me feel very good about myself when I am wasting my time. I have a lot of stuff to be working on from my personal blog to my assignments and being a blogger and a vlogger.

This weekend I am going home for Glastonbury carnival where I get to see all my friends for my best friend Kelseys birthday. I am so excited!!

These disposables are from when Solly and I went to the New Forest for a long weekend back in the Summer. How much does this weather make you want to stay inside and hibernate? It is dark too early.

I hope everybody has a good weekend. I will check back in on Monday! Where I will be ready to start a fresh ahahah!

beach, burgers & a sinking pedalo

I don’t want this Summer to end

 I don’t think I will ever be finished with uploading photographs from Malaga. I took 4 cameras and filled them all but I got some goldies. These are from our last day which we spent in Fuengirola. Our flight was not until the evening and we had to be out of the villa at 10, so we all spent the day on the beach – it was one of my favourite days. Most of our time in Malaga we spent at the villa, which was amazing, but it was so nice to adventure out and spend the day in a different location. We had came to Fuengirola one evening before, so we thought that going back there would be the best idea as then we would know what we are doing.

A couple of us took a pedalo out to sea which was so much fun. I love doing things like this rather than just sitting at the beach.

I do not think I am ready to let go of the Summer. England is freezing cold at the moment, waking up for my 9ams are a struggle!! Jumper weather has come round so quickly, we are now in October – Christmas is coming!!

the summer of 2018

THE SUMMER OF 2018

It has been a long time coming, but I have finally finished my Summer video!! I couldn’t complete this one until the end of September because I still had Boundary Brighton to attend but I am so excited to share this one!! I have not made a video in ages due to just not being passionate about it, I felt like the videos I have made since my ‘Highlights of 2017’ video have not been the best, but I love this one.

Song: Nina Fernandes – Your eyes

I hope you enjoy!

Malaga 2018

On one of our last evenings in Malaga we thought it would be nice to go for a big family meal. We travelled over to Fueungirola for the first time since being there. We had been told it was somewhere to definitely visit as it was full of life and youth. In Malaga centre, we found that the clubs were very small and there was not much to do in the evenings. Where as Fuengirola was the place we had been hoping for the whole time we were there!

Our meal was so lovely. We went to this open restaurant where we were all able to sit outside. This my favourite evening of the whole holiday, everyone was happy and having so much fun.

MALAGA 2018

In Malaga instead of staying in a hotel, we booked out a huge villa for 20 people on Home and Away and it had it all. We couldn’t of asked for more. It had a hot tub, bed outside, our own pool with a slide, a balcony with a BBQ, a bar and so much more. The only thing we didn’t have was any clubs or shops near by. Technically we weren’t in Malaga, we were right on the out skirts and to get into the centre cost 30 euros – that is where all our money went!!

Getting a villa was the best idea because we could do whatever we wanted, we could wake up, make breakfast and just chill. Because we were in the middle of nowhere we had no noise complaints which was perfect.

If you ever need to book a holiday, go through Home and Away. It is a great service!!

I am officially back at University in Bournemouth and trying to enjoy freshers. I am so ready just to start lectures now, waking up in the morning with nothing to do gets extremely boring!!

 

the best week ever

MALAGA 2018

This year my friends and I actually backed up our ideas and booked our first group holiday. There was 17 of us so the organising was extremely stressful. I managed to find an amazing 20 person villa in Malaga on Home and Away, which had a private pool, slide, hot tub, outside bed and even a bar on the balcony. The only thing is it was in the middle of nowhere! Malaga is such a beautiful place and I am disappointed in myself that I did not take more pictures, but most of the days we spent chilling around the pool, catching some sun and making ourselves sex on the beach at our own bar. It was honestly the most amazing way to end the holiday before some of us went back to University and I wouldn’t definitely put myself through the stress of organising it again next year. It was so worth it!!

I have taken a lot more photographs on my cameras but my laptop is in repair, so there is no way of me to download them!! But a quick update; I have moved back to University and moved into my house! It is just me and 3 other girls so I am extremely excited for the next year. Lots of exciting things are coming!!

a weekend in hollands wood, new forest

Camping in the New Forest, Dorset

I would massively recommend a weekend away at the New Forest. It is very relaxing and a lot of fun. The place is filled with horses, on the first morning a shetland pony came charging at us for our food! Although there is not that much to do around us bar cycling and long walks it is a very pretty area. I would go back again!

Bag – SHEIN (buy here)

Solly and I were not able to go on a holiday this year due to him being super busy with work and us both having so many other things planned, so we thought we should spend a weekend in a tent instead. We have now both spent 2 weekends in a row in a tent, the first weekend being in a smelly, muddy field with lots of other people to the second weekend doing it properly. We borrowed my mums Glastonbury Festival tent that has one pod with a huge middle bit to keep all of our stuff in. We bought a gas cooker to make ourselves cups of tea and breakfast every morning, I stocked us up on food and beer and made our sleeping area extremely snug.

Newquay

Weekend In Bournemouth

Weekend in Watford

On Friday evening Sol did not finish work until 6:30PM so we did not get to the campsite until it was pitch black. Putting the tent up in the dark was a struggle, especially when we had people taking the micky out of us when they walked passed.

On Saturday we had a long morning, relaxing outside the tent and trying to figure out how to cook some sausages without burning them. In the afternoon we went to Hurst Castle which is Henry VIII castle, a prison of Charles and a World War 2 theatre. To get to it we either had to get a ferry or walk for a couple miles along the sea front. Stupidly we decided to walk, forgetting how windy it would be being right by the seaside, but when we got there we were glad we visited. Solly loves things like this.

In the evening we went for dinner at The Snake Catcher which was not amazing. I got whitebait to start and before I had even finished they bought out my burger. It seemed like they were in a massive rush, but I did hear that they had been packed all day. On Sunday we went to Christchurch Harbour which I loved!! It was so cute, people were crabbing, paddle boarding and it was filled with lots of boats. Thankfully it was actually sunny so we were able to sit on the rocks and eat fish and chips.

I am getting my disposable cameras printed of today and I can not wait to share with you the craziness of Boomtown, bits of London and some cute pictures from camping. Disposable camera photos are my favourite, they look so nice when they are printed out. Was thinking of carrying one around all the time so I can hang the photos up in my University room!
