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!!

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.

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.

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.

the best of 2018

NOTHING BUT LOVE & HAPPINESS IN 2019

It is the morning after New Years Eve and I have entered the New Year in an amazing mind set. TIME TO GET MY SHIT TOGETHER.

Here are my best photos of 2018, everybody knows how much I love photos. This year I have done so much. Travelled, been to festivals and made so many amazing friends – I could not of done much more. But 2019 is going to be bigger and full of nothing but smiles.

I have just started reading a book called “The Power of Now” – it has opened my mind and way of thinking. 2019 is about being more spiritual and start to believe that everything happens for a reason, what will be will be. Everybody just needs to love the life they live because you will only be here once. A quote to take into the New Year is “I am in charge of how I feel and today I chose happiness.”

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. I HOPE YOUR HEARTS ARE  FULL OF LOVE, JOY AND HAPPINESS.

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.

City of Love

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!

a sunday brunch

Conto Lounge

Yesterday morning, Sols woke me up bright and early on a Sunday to go and get a nice breakfast, which if you know me well enough… ended up being brunch. Instead of getting a traditional full english, I treated myself to an Avocado Brunch – this included ciabatta bread, avocado, tomato, chilli and bacon (if you want.)

After this we went straight into Bournemouth town to do a bit of shopping and spend time in the Christmas market. To end the perfect Sunday, we had biscuits, tea and watch Sherlock homes. What a lovely weekend! – Now time to be extremely productive before I break up for Christmas on the 14th.
