THE PALM – JUMEIRAH
I am now home from an amazing 5 nights in Dubai. I couldn’t write any blogs because of the wifi so I have a lot to update you on. Although the holiday was extremely relaxing we were also so busy. My mum planned for us to do something every single evening.
We spent the first day at The Meddirra hotel where my parents had been staying two nights before Alice, Jack and I arrived. We had the most amazing flight over with Emerites and after sitting on a plane for 7 hours I have now decided after University I want to become an air hostess!!! Travelling the world for free and earning a profit, what could go wrong?
We flew over night so we arrived in Dubai at 7:00AM local time, which is 4:00AM in England. I then did not sleep the whole day until the evening to sort my sleeping pattern. The first day was the hottest, it reached 39 degrees and blonde me thought my skin could handle it even after 6 months with no sun. I then got completely burnt and couldn’t go out in it the next day, hahah!
Bikini: Zaful (new favourite)
casa aventura – a villa for 20
A beautiful day for a beautiful beach
A day in the South | Tenerife
On another note, I have booked to go to Alicante at the end of the Summer with 20 of my friends and booked to go to Madeira with my bestie Katie!! I am also looking to go to Berlin and hopefully a short holiday with Solly. As you can tell, I want to spend my whole Summer abroad ahah!
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.
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.

My massive chocolate cake from my Dad and Sister! It is going to take a long time to finish this.
My pina colada and I at Dinner Sunday evening!
Bristol Marriotts amazing pool. We spent Sunday and my birthday morning lounging around in this spa.
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.
WHAT A WEEKEND!!
This weekend I spent turning 21!! I had the best weekend up in Bristol with all my friends and boyfriend. I will be posting another post about the whole weekend but here my favourite pictures from Saturday. I cannot believe I am 21!! Ahhh.
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.
