I spent the end of my Easter holidays in Brighton with my best friend and house mate Katie. I have never been to Brighton before but it was definitely and experience and I will be back. We drank cocktails, coffee and sat by the beach before going out to Shoosh with my course friend Tia and her boyfriend. Brighton is such a beautiful place which was a perfect end to such a lush Easter holiday with my friend and family before the stress of University work kicked in.

I am now back at Uni, I drove back yesterday morning before going to my first revision lecture. I am happy to be back but I am worried about getting lazy. University gives you a lot of free time which is sometimes hard to fill without spending a lot of money, but I am ready to keep myself busy and motivated 24/7. When I am motivated I also eat a lot better and I am going on holiday in a month so it is time to put myself in a hole of revision and fitness before I really regret it!!

Happy Tuesday everybody and last day of April!

souk in dubai

SOUK MADINAT JUMERIAH

Currently sat on my sofa after a very long week, wishing I was back in Dubai. How crazy is this weather change? After such a beautiful bank holiday weekend we are now left with miserable, black clouds. I have just got back from an amazing night in Brighton visiting my best friend Katie. We stayed at her sisters and explored everything to do with the gay capital. Today (Saturday 27th April) I have work before going out tonight to celebrate my brother and sisters birthday with all our friends. Tomorrow we are going for dinner at ASK Italian to celebrate with the family before we all head back to University. Honestly, I cannot wait to go back. Not going to lie I have not spent this Easter break chilling like I should of, I am absolutely knackers from working and socialising, now left with lots of University work to do. This week is all about getting my sh*t together before I weekend in an Eco Pod with Solly.

A morning at a Market & a touch on kindness

rome is always a good idea

Naples for the Night

One evening in Dubai we spent at a market. We went to shop but instead walked around for a bit and then sat down for a cocktail. These buildings are so beautiful, Dubai is so photogenic.

SAFARI DESERT TRIP / DINNER & ENTERTAINMENT

One of our evenings in Dubai we spent in the desert. We got picked up by a man who works for the Desert Safari company and he took us around the desert. We went dune bashing and for a buffet dinner, where we had fire and belly dancing for entertainment. This was definitely one of my favourite evenings! It was so much fun sussing out such a different culture.

Dress – Motel Rocks (I also had the worst hairstyle this evening I am extremely sorry about that, haha!)

Happy good Friday everyone! How excited are you all for a warm 4 day weekend? I have today off but am working most of Saturday and Sunday – which is annoying but ok because I need to build up the bank account ready for the Summer! This weather is stopping me from revising and getting me too excited to finish. I just want to be on holiday again!

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.

pumpkin pickin’

SOPLEY FARM – PICK YOUR OWN

Is it halloween season if you don’t pick your own pumpkin? Today my friends and I went to Sopley farm in Christchurch where you are able to go and pick your own pumpkin. In the Summer it turns into a strawberry farm and in the Winter you are able to cut your own Christmas tree. I never really get into Halloween, I never get that dressed up or decorate my house, I just never understood the point. But this year has been so much fun! Although I’m not actually going out on Halloween, I spent the whole weekend dressed up with my friends.

Maybe next year I will make more of an effort, who knows.

 

beach, burgers & a sinking pedalo

I don’t want this Summer to end

 I don’t think I will ever be finished with uploading photographs from Malaga. I took 4 cameras and filled them all but I got some goldies. These are from our last day which we spent in Fuengirola. Our flight was not until the evening and we had to be out of the villa at 10, so we all spent the day on the beach – it was one of my favourite days. Most of our time in Malaga we spent at the villa, which was amazing, but it was so nice to adventure out and spend the day in a different location. We had came to Fuengirola one evening before, so we thought that going back there would be the best idea as then we would know what we are doing.

A couple of us took a pedalo out to sea which was so much fun. I love doing things like this rather than just sitting at the beach.

I do not think I am ready to let go of the Summer. England is freezing cold at the moment, waking up for my 9ams are a struggle!! Jumper weather has come round so quickly, we are now in October – Christmas is coming!!

fuengirola

Malaga 2018

On one of our last evenings in Malaga we thought it would be nice to go for a big family meal. We travelled over to Fueungirola for the first time since being there. We had been told it was somewhere to definitely visit as it was full of life and youth. In Malaga centre, we found that the clubs were very small and there was not much to do in the evenings. Where as Fuengirola was the place we had been hoping for the whole time we were there!

Our meal was so lovely. We went to this open restaurant where we were all able to sit outside. This my favourite evening of the whole holiday, everyone was happy and having so much fun.
