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!

Portugal 2018

PORTUGAL 2018 – FAMILY HOLIDAY

I have finally finished my Portugal video!! I tried out some new effects, such as glitches and fast zooms. Instead of making this video out people I was planning on making it slightly more artistic, but unfortunately I made it once amazingly and lost it. So I had to stick with this version. I am still proud of it but upset about how bad the quality is once I have put it on Youtube.

Flower power & Pina coladas

A beautiful day for a beautiful beach

Óbidos Castle: a different day, a different beach

If you want to see it in better quality have a look on my Instagram account @emilymaythorne!! I DON NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO THIS SONG: Louis the Child – Slow Down Love.

I hope you enjoy it anyway!

Jack and I getting out of the sea in the Golden Hour!

Cute little shops below and  surrounding Obidos Castle.

There were decorated bikes everywhere in Portugal. We came to the conclusion that they were our version on scarecrows or something, haha!

The best spaghetti carbonara I have had in a very long time!! After a day at the beach we were all desperate for Italian food (apart from my brother who just craves meat.) We found the cutest little resturent just by the beach with the nicest waitresses and the best food.

Alice and I ‘paddle boarding,’ haha! The tide was so strong this day that my Mum and Dad pulled us along on there kaiak, how lazy are we.

My brother and I enjoying the freezing cold sea. The waves were massive this day we were being completely swept away.

Our family villa. What a beautiful view!!

Another picture from Obidos Castle, the place was so beautiful and filled with colour.

BBQ time!! 

The first day at the beach, obviously holding a nice, cold mojito!

A little TB of my family holiday in Portugal. I can not wait to go away in September with my friends!! Although England is sunny, there is nothing like a holiday. Summer is the best!

Óbidos Castle: a different day, a different beach

Wednesday 27th June

On our way too a new beach my Dad wanted to go the rural way and stop at a castle. I am glad we did, the place was beautiful. Filled with colours, flowers and culture. It was like walking the Great Wall of China, ahah. You had to walk along a wall that was extremely high in the air, with no wall on one side, to get to the castle, as you can see in my second photograph.

After we walked around around the shops and got a coffee in a cute cafe. It was very hot so by the time we had finished, we were ready for the beach.

We went to the other side of Peniche beach, where there were a lot more people, bars and rocks to climb on. My family and I love to just sit on the beach, especially when it is sunny. My brother is like a fish so he gets very bored, but loves it when someone actually gets in the sea with him, haha!

Nearly everyday we have been travelling to a different beach that Dad discovers on google maps. It is always exciting to try new things.

SUN SHINE ON MY MIND

This week has been very exciting. THE SUN IS FINALLY OUT. They have been saying all week, ‘there with be a heat wave, there will be a heat wave,’ but since being back in Bournemouth the weather has not been warm. I went to University Tuesday in a leather jacket and I was freezing. Wednesday I woke up and went to a one hour lecture which I had at 10:00AM, got back at 11:00Am and cleaned my room. For some reason it is already an absolute tip after 2 days.

In the afternoon I went for lunch at Zizzis in the centre of Bournemouth as it is my friends 19th birthday. The weather is way to nice, it was hard to not go to the beach before going out in Bournemouth for her birthday.

On Thursday I spent the whole day at the beach. I was so busy I completely forgot to eat the whole day! I don’t know why. We were there until 8/9PM and it felt as if we were on a girls holiday.

We spent the whole day at the beach on Friday as well, I was even in my bikini haha. We walked down at around 11:00AM before I had to drive home as my friend is getting married this weekend!! (I am only going to the reception.) On the Friday evening Solly and I watched Cocacobanna in Strode Theatre as his sister was performing. All round I have had a fun filled week.

I am now ready for England to pour down with rain so I can get some Uni work done, haha!
