A while back, I took a trip with my mum and my grandma to Bath for a night away. It was for my mum’s birthday so we had a bit of a celebration, and it was really lovely to spend some quality time just the three of us. As we were only there for one night, and we had previously made a day trip there, we didn’t see everything Bath has to offer. However, I’ll try to throw in recommendations where I can! After checking…Continue Reading “This is… Bath”

This is a bit of a belated post, but it’s something I did want to write about. Last weekend, Matt and I went away on the Friday night for our anniversary, to a little hotel near Broadway, which isn’t that far away from where I live in the Cotswolds. It’s a cute little town, with some great cafes and pubs, and LOTS of super cute gift shops. Just my kind of place! We set off early in the afternoon, and the weather was actually okay when…Continue Reading “A Classic Cotswolds Escape”

It’s that time of the week again when I forget I haven’t done this post and end up writing it late on a Sunday afternoon before it’s officially not the weekend anymore :’) So this is what I’ve been living this past week.. 1.New Look socks These cute socks are from New Look, and for £1.99 each or £4 for 3 pairs, they’re a bit of a bargain. They’re also super comfortable and not bad quality. I’ve always been a sucker for cute socks, and…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 25th October 2015”

It’s only this past year that I’ve really discovered tapas. Being an extremely fussy eater, I simply presumed that I wouldn’t like anything, so stayed clear. When my boyfriend and I went to Barcelona 2 years ago, he was keen to try the tapas which the city is famous for, but I stayed clear. However, when we went again in April this year, I was *slightly* more keen to try some. Fortunately, there are quite a few dishes which I like, and we ended up…Continue Reading “Me Encantan Las Tapas”

Last weekend, I turned 21! I have to say, I definitely don’t feel it! If anything, I think my mental age is probably getting lower… Hehe 🙂 Anyway, it was bit unfortunate that most of my friends are now in Finals mode at uni, so I knew we probably weren’t going to have a proper night out. Instead, we went to a cute little restaurant called Zheng, which does quite a few types of Asian food, although I definitely go for the Chinese cuisine they…Continue Reading “21”

Time for a bit of an update! I don’t often do these posts, but I feel like it’s helpful to explain where I am and what I’m doing, because it often reflects on what I’m writing. Last week was my last week at uni, and I had a ton of work to finish off, so it wasn’t quite as laid back as the last week of term usually is. However, by the time Thursday evening rolled round, I had literally just had my last tutorial….Continue Reading “Update #3 – Christmas Formal & Home for the Holidays (Blogmas Day 10)”

Last night, my boyfriend Matt and I went on a bit of a date. I call it a bit of a date, because I feel like I’ve never really been on a proper date. What I mean by a ‘proper date’, is something like a first date, going out to dinner or a movie with someone who you’re only just getting to know. The accepted protocol seems to be that people go on several dates before they become involved, and definitely before they are considered…Continue Reading “Date Night”

This might end up being a rather insubstantial post, but I’m currently sat here watching the England game and I just have to do something – unfortunately watching football isn’t something that massively interests me! So I thought I’d do a bit of a catch up of what I’ve been doing lately, and what to expect in the next few weeks. My last post was a recipe, which is a new one for me – I’m not exactly a good experimenter when it comes to…Continue Reading “Catching Up”

The title of this post pretty much sums up what was most important to me on my recent holiday to Egypt. My boyfriend Matt and I stayed at a HUGE hotel complex in Sharm El Sheikh, and as expected it was absolutely gorgeous. and ridiculously hot. Weather like this… … unfortunately meant that our air conditioned room quickly became a cool haven at numerous points during the day, which only slightly cut into our tanning time. Okay, I could barely lie in the sun for more…Continue Reading “Sun, Pool, Cocktails, and Air Conditioning”

I thought this was going to be a kind of general post, but I’ve realised that it does have a theme. It goes something like this: I’m currently trying to get some more exercise in, so here’s me all kitted out to play tennis, in my slightly-too-bright Nike shorts and trainers courtesy of Austin, Texas’s finest outlet malls.    I’m also trying to eat more healthily, which actually involves making quite healthy dinners of salad, vegetables, etc, and ruining them by putting lots of dressing,…Continue Reading “What’s Occurring”
