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!

a safari trip to the desert

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!

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)

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!

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.

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!

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!!

boundary brighton

Saturday 29th September

The last festival of the season. It is now officially autumn and I have woken up the morning to floods of rain outside my front door. Luckily for us, on this Saturday the sun was shining bright. I was able to wear my new Motel Rocks dress without worrying about the cold. I have never bought anything from Motel Rocks before, this is my first item of clothing and I love it. I bought a leopard print, flowing dress that has a long slit up the side of my leg. I have never owned anything that was leopard print before but I loved this pattern because it was a big print rather than really small.

Boundary is a festival in Brighton that I have never been to before, but I would definitly recommend. It is a great way to end the Summer!!

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.

I hope you enjoy!

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!!
