Arriving in Munich

This is the 4th time my family and I have been skiing in Germany. We arrived Friday night and went for our first day skinning today. We were only able to have a half day because it was so busy. I think we all forgot that it was the weekend and was full of proffecionals and little children. We always ski at resort called Hausberg,which is in Garmish where we are staying, but this year we are adventuring out to other resorts that are connected together on the mountain.

We are staying for 6 nights in a flat on St Martin road. It has 3 floors, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It also has 2 televisions with a lounge and a kitchen. It is a lot bigger than we were expecting it to be. 

So far we have only been skiing for one half day, which is why I haven’t been able to take many photos. Alice, Jack and I (my sister and brother) skiied to the bottom of the mountain at around 3:30PM, and then cpgot the gondolier back all the way to the top to meet mum and dad at the café/Resturant. As we were sat eating our chips and German sausages, we didn’t realise that all the gondoliers shut at 4:15, so them all had to ski to the bottom again. It was so nice as there was nobody else on the slope but I was absolutely knackered by the end. This evening we went to an Irish pub for a beer and to watch England play rugby. For tea we got massive pizzas and now I am about to pass out in bed.

Realise what you have!

In May 2015 I visited a beautiful country called Oman. Looking back through these photos really makes me see that I do not appreciate what I have. I mean, look at how gorgeous the scenery in Oman is and I have only just realised how amazing it was now. Live in the moment, because it the future you will regret spending all your time on your phone or with your head being somewhere else when the opportunities have passed.

#TheBestOf2016

#TheBestOf2016

From January till about March my year was pretty dull, as I looked back through my photos and realised I only had around 3. In March, I turned 18 and went on a big night out in Bristol that I do not remember a second of. From then on, as you have read I have been on many nights out and attended many festivals throughout the Summer. Also as you would of read, I went to Florida for 2 weeks. I ended 2016 on a high, and I hope 2017 is the same.

Hello 2017

Last night I celebrated the entry to 2017 in my local night club for the last ever time, as its last opening was last night. As you may of already realised I live in the middle of no where, so going to places such as Envy, which is the name of one of the local night club, is like attending a house party, as it is small and you know everybody there. The only bad thing about it is the strict bouncers and the drink prices. 

My whole outfit is Pretty Little Thing, apart from my Adidas trainers. I wore these trainers with my outfit as I thought I may of looked too dressed up and the trainers would of evened it out.

I thought I would I would take this post to welcome 2017 with open arms and hope that it is as good of a year in 2016. 2016 was probably the happiest year of my life. I found a part time job that I love, I have focused on my course and realised how much I enjoy it and I have attended and made the most of everything I do. Most of all, I have become closer to my family, friends and my boyfriend. Over all I am in a very secure place. All though everything is good, there are a couple things I would like to change in myself, in order to make 2017 better.

My New Years Resolutions:

  1. Try and exercise once a day and concentrate on what I am eating. I want this to be the start of me becoming a lot fitter and healthier, so I am at my goal weight by the summer holidays and for when I start University.
  2. Get in to University. This is one of my main goals as every since I was younger I have wanted to go to Bournemouth Uni, and if I do not get in or try my hardest at college this year I will be devastated.
  3. Make more plans through my week. I want this year to be a busy one and to do this, I will need to plan it. This ranges between nights out and just daily activities. I want to spend less time watching crap television in bed. Be a lot more organised.
  4. Stop going on pointless nights out, save my money for adventures, festivals, holidays and good nights out.
  5. Be more sentimental with photographs, videos and events throughout the year. Make the most of what I am doing throughout the day and stop getting excited to early. Look forward to everyday.
  6. Spend more time on my blog and videos.
  7. The last resolution is to be an all round nicer person and stop taking life to seriously. To forget about everything that has happened in the past and get on with the present. The nicer you are the nicer people will be to you.

I hope you all had fun celebrating last night and are excited for the year to come.

September: BlinkBox

I was not as impressed with this months BirchBox. It only included four items, them being, dry hair shampoo, eyebrow pencil, hydration moisturiser and a mini pot of shampoo.

I love the eyebrow pencil because, as you may of already noticed, I have very light blonde brows, meaning my forehead looks very big. This pencil is a very light brown so it is perfect for me. It is not heavy on the brow at all, it is very light so when I apply it you can barely tell.

The dry hair shampoo I have used a lot due to me being very lazy and having to much hair to wash every night. Again, it has a very light feeling when you spray it onto your hair. Some dry hair shampoo turns your hair grey so i definitely recommend this shampoo in the BirchBox.

I don’t have much of an opinion on the other two products in the box. Sorry if this review is not very helpful.

Saudi Arabia

6 days visiting Dad!

As many of you don’t know, my Dad lives in Saudi Arabia working with Rolls – Royce. We do still see him a lot as he comes home for meetings and for some special occasions. This will have been my 5th time out to visit and probably my last as when I turn 19 (which is in March) my flights won’t be payed for anymore as I will officially be an adult. I do love visiting my Dad as it is nice to see him and get some sun. But I also hate it as Saudi is a very feminist and strict county.

My Dad lives on an English compound so when we stay we are allowed to do anything we want really. We spend most the day at the pool sunbathing, go for meals at the hotel, go to the gym, go shopping and just relax. Alice, Mum and I also went to the spa for a morning but as we weren’t there that long we weren’t able to due much. It was very nice to be away from everyone and everything for a little bit.

October: Birchbox

These beauty Blinkboxs I have seen advised everywhere! Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even many of the people I know have subscribed. So I thought, as I am trying to widen the range of topics I talk about on my blog, I may as well give it a go. I got sent it at the beginning of October so have been using all the products throughout the month. A couple of these products have been really good due to me just coming back from Saudi Arabia, where I was visiting my dad.

My 100% favourite product in this months box will have to be the Hamman body scrub from the brand Rituals. First of all I love the packagings fonts and colour as I feel like it looks like it is from Morrocco or a type of arty country. This product I used a lot when I got back from Saudi as I want to maintain my tan as much as possible. It is a body scrub to get rid of the dead skin on your body. I mainly used it on my face, kneck, shoulders and the bottom of my legs and I defiantly recommend it as my skin now feels amazing. On the Rituals website it cost £14 which contains 150 ml which is ore than double the size of the sample you would get given in the Birchbox.

My second favourite would have to be the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works, which I defiantly need as I find it impossible to get to sleep at night, even when I am exhausted. In the Birchbox I only got given a sample of 5 ml but I will defiantly be buying more. It is a natural way to get to sleep when you are unable to, it isn’t harmful and has a lavender scent, which is also good for you when you have a blocked nose or sore throat.

My last favourite is the LoC Millie Ultra – Gloss lip pencil in Bohemian rose. I really like it as I have been look for the perfect light pink lip colour for ages and now I’ve finally got one. It’s not too heavy on your lips yet it isn’t gloss like.

I will defiantly be applying to get the November box as I think it’s a really good way of expanding what beauty products you have already got and showing you that there are other options.

The last bit of Summer sun

Solly and I spent the Tuesday of our 3 day holiday in Newquay at Newquay Zoo. It was a very good zoo but it has made me realise that I don’t really agree with them. There were 3 lions in the zoo and I felt so sorry for them and the fact that they must be so bored and are not free in the wild. Anyway, apart from that it was very entertaining. I especially loved the meerkats! Solly and I also went on a pedlo which was a very bad idea as we ended up just floating around the lake and we have no leg muscle. 

As you know we stayed in The Headlamd Hotel. The top photograph is our breakfast setting. We sat right next to a huge glass window, over viewing the ocean. At the hotel we get all exclusive breakfast which was ideal as it defiantly got Solly and I up n the morning and the full – English was amazing. Altogether, Sol and I had a really nice 3 days away and would recommend Newquay for a short Summer trip.
