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!!

when in rome…

calories don’t count on the weekend

turtle bay, Italian & a blizzard

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.

rome is always a good idea

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.

City of Love

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.

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!!

 

Portugal 2018

PORTUGAL 2018 – FAMILY HOLIDAY

I have finally finished my Portugal video!! I tried out some new effects, such as glitches and fast zooms. Instead of making this video out people I was planning on making it slightly more artistic, but unfortunately I made it once amazingly and lost it. So I had to stick with this version. I am still proud of it but upset about how bad the quality is once I have put it on Youtube.

I hope you enjoy it anyway!

my birthday evening!

I took a lot of photos on my birthday night out on the Huji Camera app, and when I woke up the next day with a run over phone and no way to access the app I was so upset, haha! Recently this Huji camera has become massive across the Instagram community. For ages I have wanted an app on my phone which can turn pictures into disposable photos. The reason I love this app is because it can make any photo look good without having to try.

This ism last post about my 20th birthday. It was a great weekend and it is nice that I am able to share it all with you. I feel like since being at University a lot of my blog post are based around nights out, which I want to change and being at home for 3 weeks gives me the chance to do that.

I hope you like this style of post, it is a way of me sharing lots of photographs but not taking up lots of space.

happy friday!

It is officially the beginning of my birthday weekend. On Sunday I turn 20, how crazy! Time is flying by but I am extremely excited. Tonight I am going out to a club called Halo with my friends at University. Then on Saturday morning I am driving home and meeting my Dad for a quick lunch. Dad can’t be home for my actual birthday so we are celebrating it together on the Saturday. Saturday evening I am spending the evening with my friends from home, maybe just go to Whether-spoons then a nightclub, don’t want to be too hanging on my birthday. On the Sunday, I will probably spend the whole day with my boyfriend before Mum cooks us all a birthday roast in the evening. I can not wait!

Last night my best friend Katie, took me for an early birthday Wagamas and she can’t be here this evening as she is going away with her boyfriend. After, we went for 2 for 1 cocktails at Turtle Bay with Maddi and Ellie. These are the girls I am living with next year! We got all dressed up and she really treated me. It has been a lush start to a fun few days. Ill check in with you all on Monday! I am going to take this weekend to really relax and spend time with my closest friends and family!

The beaches of Barcelona

Our 2nd evening in Barcelona

For our second night in Barcelona, we thought that we should adventure down to the beach as we had not seen it yet. By this time it was quite late so the beach was not too busy. I guarantee that in the day it gets packed because the country is so warm. We wondered around the beach before finding a small restaurant to have some dinner.

After we had eaten we went out to a bar for a mojito before going back to the hotel and going to bed.
