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.

when in rome…

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!

THE SUMMER OF 2018

It has been a long time coming, but I have finally finished my Summer video!! I couldn’t complete this one until the end of September because I still had Boundary Brighton to attend but I am so excited to share this one!! I have not made a video in ages due to just not being passionate about it, I felt like the videos I have made since my ‘Highlights of 2017’ video have not been the best, but I love this one.

Song: Nina Fernandes – Your eyes

I hope you enjoy!

BOOMTOWN 2018

I will never get enough of these disposable pictures from Boomtown!! Looking back on them makes me miss it so much. I want to do a lot more next Summer, whether that is holidays or festivals!

I am finally at the end of what feels like the longest but happiest week ever. I am now officially all moved into my house that is just Katie, Ellie, Maddi and I. Its a cute girly house!! I have woke up this morning exhausted and extremely hungover, Freshers has been so much fun but I am so ready to start Uni properly next week!! I want a routine – also I have found a job!! At a cute little restaurant in Christchurch. How exciting!!

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!!

 

a surprise party

SOLLYS 21ST BIRTHDAY 

On Sunday 9th September my boyfriend Solly turned 21!!! We got back from our group holiday early Friday morning, so instead of everyone having to make the effort to go on a big night out with absolutely no money left, Sols mum and sister thought it would be an amazing idea to throw him a surprise birthday party. Solly absolutely hates being the centre of attention so everybody was worried he would hate it. I woke up at Sollys house Saturday morning and had to rush him our of the house for the whole day, it was very hard! I dragged him around the high street for a very long time before keeping him hostage at my house until nearly 7. All of our friends kept ringing him, playing up to the surprise party and asking him what we should do to celebrate his birthday. The whole day was so hard because I could not tell him what is going on at his house and Sol begun to think that nobody really cared about celebrating it with him.

At 7:00PM I took Sols to his house to “get changed” before we “went to the pub and watched the football.” Little did he know that when he walked through the back door all his friends and family were singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him. It was all worth it.

In the end he absolutely loved it and we all had an amazing evening.

For Sols 21st I am taking him to Rome at Christmas!! He was spoilt!!

I love you lots Sol, happy birthday!

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!!

dinner at the Pig Hotel, near Bath

Mums birthday dinner!!

Dress – Forever 21

Miami to Orlando

Naples for the night

Parasailing

On Tuesday 7th August my whole family went over to The Pig near Bath where my parents were staying for the night to celebrate my Mums birthday. It was an extremely posh farm hotel with all 100% organic food. I ate a lot of fish, squid for a starter and plaice as a main.

The restaurant is completely in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by fields and a gorgeous garden. My parents are completely living the high life at the moment going from hotel to hotel with my dads work.

BOOMTOWN 2018

It is currently the Wednesday after Boomtown and I am sat on my bed trying to recover. I feel like I have so much to do but my brain will not let me, the Boomtown blues are real. This is the only festival I have this year and it makes me so sad that I have to wait for such a long time for another. These are the only photographs I got on my phone through the whole weekend as I spent most of my time taking videos and trying to fill up my disposable cameras.

This weekend Solly and I are going camping so I am trying to organise all of our stuff to make it perfect. I hope the weather get better!! Today I will get half of my disposables printed and I can’t wait. I feel like I have so much going on the next couple of weeks. Camping, BBQ and birthdays, Malaga, my boyfriends birthday, visiting London again and then the move back to University. I am trying to write lots of lists to make sure everything gets done.

Happy Wednesday everybody!
