from a devil to an angel

Halloween 2018

This year I did not go out on actual halloween as it was on a Wednesday and I had a presentation at 9:00AM the next day. But instead I went out on the Friday and Saturday before hand and dressed up as a devil one night and an angel the other – how original!

On Friday 26th October i went to a house party at my friends house. I am wearing devil horns from Wilko, matching with my friends Carolina and Kimia. I am then wearing a nice black dress from Misguided. On Saturday 27th October I went to block party in Bournemouth where you hop from club to club to watch different acts. I wore a white top from New Look and my tennis skirt is from Depop. As you can see it was a good night, I ended up behind the dj set.

Goodbye Halloween, it is time for CHRISTMAS!!

 

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.

Family in Bournemouth | The Stable Restaurant 

An evening in Leisture Square | M&M World & Jamie Olivers Diner

Lago Martianez | Puerto De La Cruz

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.

What am I doing in London & how I am staying organised

I spent Saturday afternoon shopping in Oxford Circus and walking around Carnaby Street. I have never actually been to Carnaby Street and I did not realise how close it was to Oxford Circus but I have always heard good things. It is very funky!

On Friday night my Uni friends and I went to Fabric. It was my first time ever clubbing in London and was definitely one to remember! It was not as scary as I thought it would be.

This is the cute water fountain which is in the kitchen of the office I am working in. I will try and take a lot more pictures of the office as it is so cute, there are plants everywhere and even a roof top balcony.

I am currently a week into my work placement in London and I bet you wonder what I am doing here?

One evening, this lady from down the road asked me to babysit for her children. I said yes because I needed the money and knew it would help her out a lot. When I got there we began talking about University, where I told her I studied Communications and Media at Bournemouth. We had a long old chat about it before she bought up that she used to work for a PR company called FireFly. The lovely women then hooked me up with this amazing work experience in London, where I am going to the FireFly office everyday and learning about what they do.

This is an amazing experience for me as I have always said I want to live in a big city one day, and here is my chance to see if I like it.

I am staying with my second cousins in Stockwell which is just a short commute work. Unfortunately I did not know how busy the tube gets, I don’t know if that is just me being naive but it is awful!! Some mornings I am having to wait for 2 or 3 trains to pass just because I can’t fit on them. I think it is the only time you can be so close into somebodies personal space without it being a problem. I also find it a really weird concept because nobody talks? It is completely silent, everybody is either people watching, reading or listening to their music. The tube is a silent train filled with hundreds of people, its very odd.

Lucky enough for me I have University friends that live in London, so I am not fully on my own. I have a lot of plans for the next 2 weeks, where I am seeing friends and trying to be the biggest tourist I can. Right now, I am currently sat in a coffee shop in Oxford Circus before I go shopping. Being in London is the best excuse to leave the house.

While I am here I want to sit in Hyde Park, visit Soho art galleries, got to Carnaby Street, go for a drink up The Shard and visit Covent Gardens.

So far I have already been to Camden market, as I met my friend Carolina there to watch the football (we couldn’t get into any pubs tho!) On Friday night my friends and I also went to Fabric which was amazing.

My first week in London has been a lot of fun. I am really enjoying my work placement, the people I am working with are lovely and I am just enjoying being a Londoner. There is always stuff to do! My aim for the next week is too take a lot more pictures of my outfits, my food and also to stop spending so much money!

Hope you have enjoyed this little update of what is going on in my life. I really am making the most out of my time here and I want to take you with me on my adventure.

“When it rains, look for rainbows”

How am I staying organised in London?

My way of staying organised is too keep a hand diary and write absolutely everything into it. What time you start work, your plans to see friends, scheduling in the gym. Absolutely everything, put it in your diary. I can stress to you all how much this helps me. I am the type of person that gets extremely stressed out if I don’t have it all laid out in front of me. I don’t like using my phone to stay organised, or online calendars, I prefer to have it all written down in a book in front of me.

This diary I have bought started at the beginning of July, which is perfect as this is when I started full time work in London. It is the perfect way for me to know what I need to get done that day. It also means I can try and fit in seeing everybody while I am here without getting the days wrong!

My weekend in photos

A second dinner with Solly, Friday evening at The Bear Inn. I had already eaten noodles, so I just got a baked camembert, where as Solly got a second dinner, ahah! 

On Saturday we watched England play football around my friends house, ITS COMING HOME! We then spent the rest of the day celebrating in the sunshine.

On Sunday, Mum and I travelled to London by train as I am starting my 3 week work experience at Firefly Media. We spent the day trying to find my bearings around London before getting an early night before tomorrow. 

My brother & sisters 18th | Sigma – SWX & Family Gathering

MY BROTHER AND SISTER ARE 18!

So if you did not know I have a twin brother and sister and this weekend, 28th April, they both turned 18! How crazy is that. My sister has been so lucky, due to her looking like me, she has been able to go clubbing for ages. Where as, my brother on the other hand is so excited. He has been to one club before and had to leave early because his friends got kicked out. – hahaha, the amount of lifts I owe my brother is ridiculous so I will be paying for it now!

28/03/18

Its there birthday! I woke up to give Alice and Jack there birthday presents. I got a Alice a new bag and Jack a jumper. Jack keeps on saying he wants to change his fashion. Mum, Alice and I then went for lunch. We were meant to be going to Ask Italian in Wells but we forgot there is a market on every Saturday so we couldn’t find a parking space! Instead we went to Wetherspoons, haha. After a quick lunch as we were in a rush, Alice and I went to get out nails done, ready for an evening out in Bristol.

I think I should start to leave my camera out whenever I have people round, haha! The next day we had to wake up quite early, after getting into bed around 5is as 30 members of my family were coming round to celebrate Alice and Jacks 18th. We had a hog roast, marquee and lots of food, it is a shame the weather was not on our side as we all spent most of the time in the house. It was also so nice to see all of the family.
