My top 10 apps/games for my iPhone

Hello guys!

I thought I would let you know what my favourite apps on my phone are! Like a lot of people I jumped on the iPhone band wagon nearly 3 years ago now and I now have an iPhone5S after trading in my 4S in early December. I stuck with the iPhone because it was the only phone that I hadn't got bored of or broken, needless to say after having the 5S for less than a month I accidently dropped it down the toilet! It's ok though because I have insurance so I have since got another phone :)

So heres my top ten:

10. Minion Run - I love this game, like temple run but with your favourite little critters! 

9. Krop Circle - I use this to edit some of my photos, love the boarders that you can use!

8. MyFitnessPal - I've started to use this to help loose weight. I want to loose a stone and tone up by the summer, this tracks my calories and fitness!

7. LinkedIn - Looking for a placement is hard so I'm using this app to keep my online CV up to date and to keep links with potential employers.

6. Bloglovin - This is great to scroll through all your favourite blogs while bored in a lecture or on a train somewhere!

5. eBay - I've been selling a lot of old things recently so this is good to keep up to date with things i'm selling while I'm out and about.

4. Snapchat - Who doesn't love this app? sending stupid pictures of yourself to your friends all day.

3. Facebook - I think these last 3 are self explanitory...

2. Twitter 

1. Instagram 

Those are my top 10 apps/games for my iPhone but I would love to hear your suggestions! 
Keep Smiling!

University Baking Great British Bake Off!

After watching the sport relief GBBO and the previous series (it's a must watch in my house) my housemates wanted to judge my baking after I mentioned that I like baking and that I'm not too bad. This ended up in an entire day of baking... I made Gingerbread cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream icing and Egg custard tarts. I used the recipes that were used on the GBBO and I'll link them below but these are the final results: 

I do love baking and I think these came out really well and they are very tasty with a nice tea or coffee!

Keep Smiling

Perfect weekend getaway & apologies...

Hey guys,
So to start of the last week and a bit has been very hectic, Alex and I had to pack up all of our stuff again and move back to Canterbury for our 2nd term of our 2nd year. After being back for a couple of days now I'm finally settled and ready to get this term over with because at the end I will have finished my second year and hopefully have a placement!
Before we came back to Canterbury we went up and spent a night with Alex's great uncle at his B&B in Norfolk. It was a beautiful day to begin and we set off early to get a McDonalds breakfast before the long journey!

When we got their we spent ages talking especially about Alex's family history as we both have been doing a lot of our own and it was really interesting to discover new information and to help his uncle understand some of his childhood stories!

The room was immaculately kept and was beautiful! Had one of the comfiest beds that I have ever slept it and the biggest duvet ever so it was lovely and warm! I loved the colour scheme and the little sofa/breakfast section.

Top Primark £10 | Skirt Hollister £11.99 | Tights Primark £3 | Boots Hunters £125 + Socks £25 
Shirt Hollister £38 | Trousers Primark £12 | Shoes Primark £8

Lipstick Topshop | Foundation Mac | Eye shadow Naked Palette 2 | Mascara Mac

We went out for dinner at the local pub where the food was amazing, unfortunately I was to engrossed in conversation and didn't want to take pictures but I can recommend the Garlic and Chilli King Prawns, Gammon Steak and Sticky toffee pudding. The wine was amazing as well and definitely helped wash down the meal!

The next morning we headed back home after saying our goodbyes after having a thoroughly enjoyable weekend! If you would like to find out more or stay there head to: 

Keep Smiling!

Happy 2014!

Hey guys! After having a few weeks off for Christmas and New Year and spending time with my family I am back and ready to get 2014 rolling! This is definitely going to be a big year for me, I turn 20! I will have a placement by July and be moving in with my boyfriend for a year before heading back to university for my final year, I'm going to Greece in July and I plan on going to France and driving abroad which will definitely be an experience! I can't wait for all these things to happen and to share them with you!

I only have 2 resolutions this year so here they are:

- Eat Healthier and lose some weight! 
- Budget more and try and save rather than spend!

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)

Keep Smiling!
