december the first

TIME TO GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS!

Christmas is the happiest time of the year and it is now acceptable to start celebrating! This weekend Solly came to visit, so on the Saturday we went for a dinner at Zizzis and lots of cocktails at Slug & Lettuce.

Today is the first of all our Christmas calendars and this year I am using ‘The Book of Beauty!’ My mum bought it for me as a pre – Christmas present – I will let you know all the amazing products I get after Christmas.

Happy December the 1st!

a rainy day

Esquires Coffee Bournemouth

Over the past 2 days the weather has been dreadful, there has been rain non-stop and extremely cold. It gets dark very early so it feels as if the day is a lot shorter than it is but today Els, Katie and I went into Bournemouth town to go shopping and instead just went for a coffee. Katie introduced us to the cute, little cafe at the top of the town which has just recently opened. Places like this is what Bournemouth is missing!!

How is everyone enjoying November? A very miserable month. It reminds me of January!! – A no mans land month.

nearly time for Christmas

Bournemouth Christmas Market

It is beginning to look like Christmas!! Christmas is probably my favourite time of the year, everybody is jolly with not a care. Although November is a bit of a no mans land, it does just make me so excited for the 1st December.

On Monday night my friends and I went down to the Bournemouth market at got a warm hot chocolate and sat in the grotto. Bournemouth is so beautiful and Christmas so you will be seeing a lot more photos. I can’r wait to visit even more Christmas markets!!

 

back to a better day

NEW FOREST CAMPING

I haven’t been doing a lot recently, bar University work and seeing my friends. I have turned extremely lazy since coming back to University due to my timetable being very empty as they want us to do independent learning. After my weekend at home for my friends birthday tomorrow I am going to start a fresh on Monday. It does not make me feel very good about myself when I am wasting my time. I have a lot of stuff to be working on from my personal blog to my assignments and being a blogger and a vlogger.

This weekend I am going home for Glastonbury carnival where I get to see all my friends for my best friend Kelseys birthday. I am so excited!!

These disposables are from when Solly and I went to the New Forest for a long weekend back in the Summer. How much does this weather make you want to stay inside and hibernate? It is dark too early.

I hope everybody has a good weekend. I will check back in on Monday! Where I will be ready to start a fresh ahahah!

belated birthday, beach boscombe, burger

Yesterday I took Katie out for a belated birthday lunch because she turned 19 in August and I wasn’t able to see her on her actual birthday. I sent her a card that arrived to her in the Summer holidays saying that I would take her out for a meal as her birthday present. Tuesday was the only day we both had free to spend together so I took her to Urban Reef in Boscombe. I have never been this far down the beach before, we spend most of our time in Bournemouth. This was a cute restaurant right on the sea front where I treated her to a fatty burger. The scenery was so beautiful, we sat outside with the sun shining on us all afternoon.

MISS SUNSHINE

The last bit of Summer sun

I want to do more things like this, not just going for lunch/diner but adventuring out of Bournemouth. I have Christchurch, South Banks and Boscombe right next to me which have some lovely picturesque places to visit, so this is going to be my goal for this year. From this weekend on I have something planned every weekend!! – Very exciting.

 

the summer of 2018

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!

calories don’t count on the weekend

Barolo Restaurant and Slug & Lettuce

This weekend my boyfriend Solly came to visit me in Bournemouth and see my new house. He arrived pretty late on the Saturday because I woke up early afternoon as I worked late the night before. As soon as he got here we just chilled, drank tea and watch rubbish TV.

In the evening we went to a lovely Italian restaurant on Winton high street, which is only a 5 minute walk from my house. We weren’t able to get a table there until 9:30PM so we went to the Conto Lounge from a drink first. I bought a expresso martini which was gross!! They only added the coffee and vodka, not any syrup or sugar! I was very disappointed, but then I got my pina colada and was happy again. The Italian restaurant was called Barolo and it was so nice. It was extremely lively and packed with people all evening. I had calamari to begin with and then a chorizo, mushroom, tomato pasta as a main, it was lush!! For desert we shared a vanilla cheesecake, my favourite.

By the time our meal had finished it was around 11:30PM so we just headed home.

On the Sunday we woke up and had a chilled morning. I hadn’t been in to Bournemouth town in the day time since I have been back for second year, so it was nice to spend the afternoon shopping with Solly and sat having an ice cream by the beach. For lunch we went to Slug & Lettuce which I LOVE. I think the place is so funky and serves great food. I had an avocado, halloumi and tomato sandwich with sweet potato fries.

After spending the afternoon in town, we headed back to mine and watch ‘The Other Guys’ before Sol headed home at 7:00PM.

Happy weekend everybody!! Have the best week.
