It's that time of the year again when everyone is trying to think about what to give people for Christmas, as well as making their own wishlists. I thought I'd do a quick post with a range of ideas because I know I always look for posts like this to get some inspiration!

→ Bath or shower set - I mean you can't go wrong can you, they make a great gift and can be used by anyone. I love this set from the brand Hugg that I got from Waitrose.
→ Perfume/Cologne - Also a super simple idea but it's so nice to get something new to wear. Also Fragrance Direct has 70% at the moment!
→ Bath bomb - A good bath is underrated and of course Lush is the ultimate go-to for amazing bath bombs but of course, lots of places sell some lovely ones.
→ Makeup palette - For the makeup lovers, I feel like a palette is a gift that will be appreciated and you can get eyeshadow, contour, highlight etc. James Charles x Morphe Palette is insane for those who like to experiment with colour but goo…


A slightly more different post today as I was kindly nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award! I'm still fairly new to the blogging scene so to be nominated for things like this is always a lovely surprise, thank you so much to Bella! Her blog - Life With Bella N is a fab one and you should definitely check it out!

The Versatile Blogger Award is an excellent way to find out some things about your fellow bloggers, as well as discovering new ones. If you are nominated, there are some basic rules:

- Thank those that nominated you
- Share 7 facts about yourself
- Nominate 15 other bloggers

7 Facts About Me: 

1) I'd like to be taller - I'm about 5ft 1-2 so yes I have the daily struggles of clothes being too long, people thinking you're much younger than you are and just constantly having to look up. I don't hate being short, I'm used to it now and there are definitely some perks, however I would like an extra few inches!

2) I love doing quizzes - I can just spend ages testing myself on random subjects, Buzzfeed is great for that! I have always enjoyed quizzes, whether they were at school, in my magazines I loved as a kid, panel shows or online. Equally, I also enjoy testing other people (much to their enjoyment...) When I was younger, I regularly asked my Mum to recite every child's birthday in my class!

3) In 2001 (aged 2) I was given the 'Trendy Toddler' award in our local carnival. This basically involved me going round the town in a car and waving at people on carnival night, though I did get a pretty cool trophy too!

4) The Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite movies - I first watched it when I was about 2 and fell in love, I then proceeded to watch it every single day for a considerable amount of time. When finding out I was going to be a big sister, my name suggestions were Dorothy for a girl and Toto for a boy, but unfortunately my parents didn't go with my choices!! Nowadays I still enjoy it because it makes me feel so nostalgic. 

5) I hope to set foot on every continent - I have always wanted to travel and I would love to say that I had completed that one day! So far I've done 2 of 7!

6) I enjoy learning - I know a fair amount of people hate school, however I actually quite liked it. Sure, it had moments that sucked but I loved being in an environment where I could learn constantly and still be around friends!

7) In 2 days I will have been with my boyfriend for a whole 40 months - It seems like yesterday that we first met but at the same time it also feels like we have been together forever! 


Now, here are 15 bloggers that I am nominating for The Versatile Blogger Award! If you have already been nominated then please link me to your post!

Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…


March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my that wasn't as great!


This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…


These posts are one of my favourites to read so I thought it was time to do another! Here are my answers to the Throwback Tag questions!
1) What year were you born?
2) What did you look like when you were younger? (share a picture!)
Here are a few of me when I was little, I have to admit, I was a fan of the camera!

3) What TV shows did you watch when you were young?
When I was really young I loved Bob The Builder and Bear in the Big Blue House & then when I was a bit older I was obsessed with Disney Channel - my favourite was probably Wizards of Waverly Place!
4) What toys did you play with and what was the name of your favourite toy?
I liked playing with Polly Pocket a lot, and Tamagotchi's oh my, they were great! When I was a little older I loved playing on my Nintendo DS mostly! One of my favourite toys was a bear called Picnic! 
5) What songs did you love when you were young?
I was obsessed with the song 'The Tide is High' when I was pretty young, I can remember s…
