Throwback Thursday!

Hey guys! I'm going to try and make these a regular thing but this is my throwback thursday! So last time I did a picture of me just after I was born so I was a new born now this one was took in December 1994 which was my first Christmas! (Hence the Christmas hat). I was 9 months old here, I think I get cuter as I go into my toddler years.

Keep Smiling!

25 things about moi!

I decided to tell you guys 25 things about myself to give you a better idea of who I am and what i'm all about.

1. I really like cucumbers... I don't mean this as a sexual innuendo I actually love the vegetable. I'm not sure where this started but I remember going to Greece on numerous occasions when I was younger and not eating anything for the entire holiday other than chips and cucumber. I think this is because I was an extremely fussy kid when it came to eating and that at the time greek food really didn't appeal to me, now I love the stuff!! 

2. I would consider myself nerdy, I love Star Wars, Star Trek, Thunderbirds, computer games, sci fi movies!

3. I'm really looking forward to getting engaged, married and starting a family, obviously I know I'm still way too young to fulfill this yet but hopefully after university this will begin and hopefully i'm still doing this blog so I can share every minute with you! 

4. If you didn't already know then I am a full time student studying at UKC (University of Kent Canterbury Campus) and I have to say that this is one of the best things that I have chosen to do in my life!

5. I was born in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire in a little place called Warboys.

6. The most northern I've been is York, and yes I mean in the entire world.

7. I'm dating Xangrim :P. 

8. I am very sensitive to the temperature so even if it's warm I will wear a jumper because I will most probably think it's actually cold!

9. I have a lot of pets, well my parents do, we have 6 rabbits (1 giant blue) and a lot of guinea pigs I can't even count! I also have a chameleon! 

10. I pretty much went to Greece every year from the age of 18 months - 10 years and have been back since and other than the Maldives is probably my favourite destination. 

11. My favourite movies of all time are probably O' Brother Where Art Thou and Full Metal Jacket. 

12. My favourite time of the year is Summer because I love my sunshine!

13. I really want a dog so the fact my boyfriend is getting a new puppy next tuesday is over exciting me!

14. I really want to go to vidcon some day! 

15. I am an only child :)

16. My favourite colour is really pastel mint green. 

17. My favourite TV shows atm are House, Friends and New Girl. 

18. The Youtuber that I watch everyday religiously is theSacconeJolys and i'm literally obsessed with it. 

19. My inspirational bloggers are Zoella, Fleur DeForce and Tanya Burr. 

20. I'm not going to graduate university until 2016 because i'm taking my third year to do a year in industry. 

21.  I'm a bit of computer nerd & I do game quite a lot... Civ 5, Papers Please and COD are just a few of my favourites!

22. My favourite subject when I was younger was Maths... yeh I was weird.

23. I'm known as a very weird person... you can ask anyone this! :P

24. I still love making dens and making them with my friends daughter is the best thing ever!

25. I've been lucky enough to go on holiday to the Maldives 3 times and I loved every minute! Especially when my best friend came along!

So I hoped you learnt something about me! 
Keep Smiling!

Tuesday, 27 August 2013


Hey guys, as some of you might well know the last two weeks I have spent at my boyfriend's parents place in France. They own a house out there with 2 gites attached. It's called LE RÊVE FRANÇAIS (link there) and it is in the Deux Sevres region of Poitou Charente. In the commune of La Chapelle Sainte Etienne it is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is under 2 miles from L'Absie. 

I had a fabulous 2 weeks and I can't believe how fast it went! Now I'm back I have to focus on university and moving into my new house! 

The gorgeous pool!

Grapes growing

The view from the garden

Beautiful dexter!

It was an extremely relaxing holiday which I think was good for all of us! I enjoyed the views and the countryside! It's basically like a warmer version of England. Hopefully I'll be able to go out there again next summer and maybe persuade my parents to visit as well.
Thanks for reading! Hope you've all had a good summer! 

Keep Smiling !

A French BBQ & OOTD

Hello, the other day I had a lovely time with Alex's parents and their guests and a weekly BBQ. It was such good food and we drank and drank wine until we had gone through about 7 bottles... to be fair there was 14 of us! 15 including Dexter of course :P. Anyway it took me a long time to decide what to wear but eventually I just threw on my new top and jumper from next and a white frilly skirt from River Island that I brought earlier on in the year. 

Jumper & vest top - Next, Skirt - River Island, Shoes - Kurt Geiger & Sunglasses - RayBan

I'm going to do a post of pictures from my French trip in about an hour so I'll give you all the pictures and details then about what I got up to! :) 

Keep Smiling!
