Since I recently turned 20, I feel like a know a fair amount about the sort of person I am now... though I definitely don't have my life figured out by any means! I also find posts that allow you to find more about the blogger interesting so thought I'd share 20 things about me here.
I love exploring and travelling - Whether it's a completely different country or even just a new place within somewhere I'm already familiar with, I want to visit as many different places as I can!Learning has always been something I've enjoyed - I actually really liked school but besides that, I just like to learn and expand my knowledge as much as possible.I'm generally a pretty calm and chilled person - Most of the time I'm a very laid back person and don't get easily stressed or angry.I'm a hard worker but also equally good at procrastinating - I always work hard at whatever I do but I would probably get it done much quicker if I didn't procrastinate as much!I e…


This year I participated in a Secret Santa for bloggers which was organised by the lovely Casey. Despite a few hiccups, it was a lovely thing to be a part of because I was able to connect with so many new bloggers and we all have a great support system now! You can check out Casey's post here if you'd like to see what everyone else got too as she kindly provided links to all of our blogs!

My gifts arrived quite a while ago, packaged in some really festive Christmas Pudding wrapping paper and I really had to resist the urge to open them, I always used to be one of those kids that would feel around and try to work out what a present was when I had to wait to open it, haha! My Secret Santa was Eloise who blogs over at The Longing Wanderer. She absolutely nailed my gifts and I couldn't be happier with them so I can't thank her enough!

Firstly I opened two bath bombs which smelt amazing even before opening them, I quickly recognised that they were from Lush which really excited me as I love their products. I received the 'Luxury Lush Pud' which is a Christmas classic and one I always like to use, as well as the new 'Cheery Christmas' bath bomb which is so pretty. I always enjoy colourful bath bombs and plus they smell so good too, so am definitely looking forward to using these!

Next, I opened a set of two travel notebooks which will be perfect for detailing all my adventures. It was so nice of Eloise to put so much thought into the gifts as she saw that I hope to travel! I also really like the design of the notebooks, I think the background of the map is really cool and the quotes are obviously perfect for travelling!

I also received a Shearer Candle in the scent 'Cinnamon Spice' which couldn't have been a better choice for me, it's the perfect scent for Christmas and I can't wait to burn it. I've not tried any of the Shearer Candles before but I really like the packaging and love the blue colour of this one. I'll definitely be checking out their other ones now, thanks to Eloise!

Lastly, I was given a set of Watercolour Brush Pens which was something I put on my wishlist so was so pleased to open it. I really enjoy being creative and want to experiment more with calligraphy so have had my eye on these for a while now. There is a great range of colours and I love working with watercolour so I'll definitely enjoy using them over Christmas!

Once again, a massive thank you to Eloise for these amazing gifts as I love them all and was definitely lucky to have you as my Secret Santa. I would really like to be a part of the Bloggers Secret Santa next year as I also really enjoyed buying gifts to send to another lovely blogger too, I'm not sure if she's opened them yet so I won't spoil anything but hopefully, she likes them!

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…


Isn't it mad that we're halfway through 2018 already, or as I like to think - halfway to Christmas again, haha! I'm sure I always say this, but it really feels like this year has gone by so quickly! May was a pretty good month, we had some gorgeous weather which always puts me in a great mood but I also find that when the sun is out, blogging tends to take a backseat which I really want to improve on over June! Anyway, here are my favourites for May!

In my last favourites, I touched upon how I wanted to keep up with my Spring photography and like I just mentioned, we've been pretty lucky with the weather in May so that's something I've enjoyed doing a lot! It's been really lovely being able to spend more time outside and I've made the most of it by going on regular walks, it's a great way to relax and clear your mind and I've been able to take some great photos too!

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…
