AN AMAZING VEGAN BRUNCH

For my latest University project I had to create a news feature about anything I wanted, so I decided to create one about ‘The Explosion of Vegansim.’ To do this I had to visit different vegan restaurant and gather different opinions.

Katie and I went to ‘Mad Cucumber’ at the top of Bournemouth town for brunch. As you can see from the bottom photograph it was delicious. For lent, Katie and I have given up meat which I am currently struggling with as I am going out for Thai food this evening, haha! On my birthday I did eat a little bit of meat (because it was my birthday) but I have never felt so bloated afterwards. Your body adapts extremely quickly.

This restaurant had a lot of Glastonbury vibes which made it extremely comfortable and friendly.

my birthday weekend snap shots

Sol and I stayed for 1 night in the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel, on Park Street in Bristol. The hotel was so lovely and extremely up market for myself and Sol.

Opening my presents from Sol and his mum on Monday morning. He got me lots of little bits such as trainers, earrings, joggers and a trip to an Eco Pod in Devon, May bank holiday weekend!

We went for dinner Sunday evening at San Carlo restaurant which is an amazing Italian on Park Street.

A cheese cake that the Miller & Carter brought over to me at breakfast while I was sat all on my own!! Sol and I spent most of my birthday eating at buffets. We had a buffet breakfast and went to Zaza Bazars for lunch, a day full of food.

MALAGA DISPOSABLES

My photographs from Malaga will never end. It was the best week ever and I can’t wait to start organising the next one. The weather in England is horrible, especially in my Uni house when we have 2 hours of heating a day.

I am currently sat here on my day off Uni creating my 2018 videos and planning all the holidays I am going to go on in the Summer – with allllllll the money I have, haha! I cannot wait for the weather to heat up so we can all spend everyday at Bournemouth beach! These are disposable photographs from the group holiday I organised to Malaga which I have never shared.

Today I am going to re – do my whole blog, it is time for a fresh start as I have had emilymaythorne.com for around 3 years. I feel like a lot of the posts need deleting as I want to concentrate on travel, food and my photography! Here is my new Instagram page that I have created – https://www.instagram.com/emilymaythorne/ – please give it a follow!

Happy Wednesday everybody, have a goo rest of your day.

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!!

TB to Summer’17

Its a Thursday afternoon and I am packing for my family holiday to Portugal on Sunday, so I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite throwbacks to Summer of 2017 – the best Summer of my life!!

Last year I started the Summer with Glastonbury festival, but unfortunately it is not on this year 😦 if it was, all my friends and I would be extremely excited right now!! As well as going to BoomTown I attended lots of little day festivals, as well as going to Tenerife and London with my boyfriend, and Barcelona with my Mum and Sister. The whole of August was jam packed.

This Summer I am spending a lot of time working but also have lots of fun things plan. Follow me to keep up with my Summer!

I have finished my first year at University!

My first year of University is officially over!

On Friday 25th May I had my first/last exam which went extremely well. The feeling of relief when I walked out of the exam hall was brilliant and we all headed straight to spoons. That night I went lollipop at The Old Firestation with all of my course friends and we had the best night. It was also National Wine Day.

I have had a very busy week ahead of me, I have had Love Saves the Day this weekend and I am going back to university this week for the Summer Ball and to celebrate the end of exams with my friends.
