WONDERLAND - Last year of being a teen?!

| On
Tuesday, January 26, 2016
Weirdly, I am writing this on my birthday, however I will have been 19 for over a week once I've uploaded this!
I can't actually believe that I am nearly 20, like wutttttttt?? Where has the time gone?! 
This is the first year that I haven't been excited for my bday though... Is that a sign that I'm getting old? I hope not!! I think that the reason I'm not excited is because I find being 19 is such a mehhhhh age, y'know what I mean?
When you're 16, you're legal for scratch cards and woohoo (anyone who plays the Sims will understand that term... For those who don't - I mean hanky panky, and if you still don't understand then tough).
When you're 17, you can learn how to drive - which I still haven't even thought about.
When you're 18, you can drink and gamble to your hearts galore!!
But, when you're 19, what can you celebrate about? In fact it's just depressing because it does signify the end of your teens, which is heck of a scary cos I can't adult very well.

Anywho, I did take a few pics of my bday night out, in which I can't remember a thing and left me with a terrible hangover - cue the 'I'm never drinking again!!!'... Such a lie

What I wore - although you can't see the majority! I'll try and link up, and find pictures of as many things as poss!

Dress - Missguided 
(I couldn't find my dress - but here's an alternative AND it's in the sale!!)
Slinky Plunge Ruched Bodycon Dress Chocolate Brown
Shoes (although you can't see them) - New Look

Earrings - Topshop (couldn't find mine, but these are a cool alternative)
Clutch - Lipsy London

WONDERLAND - New Year in London

| On
Sunday, January 17, 2016
I hope you guys all had a fab start to the year... Cos I certainly did!
Me and my boyf (Sam) decided that we'd start the new year off in my fave city (haven't been to many cities to be fair though)... LONDON!!! This did come with a price unfortunately, as we stupidly decided to travel up on New Years Day, which meant that of course I'd be nursing a hangover - a real bad one as well :( 
However, we were travelling up in first class, so it could've been a lot worse! 

We stayed in a Travelodge in the Kings Cross area, which indeed meant we could see platform 9 and 3/4's?! Anywho, we got up to an awful lot, so I'm not going to go into great detail; I'll just leave you with a brief overview, and a bunch of pictures - I'll also suggest if anything is worth going to.

DAY 1:
- travel up in first class on the train
- check into the hotel
- get tube to Westminster
- see Houses of Parliament, fancy buildings and Buckingham Palace
...have tea with the queen....
- go to Hyde Park to go to... WINTER WONDERLAND?!?! Coolest place to go to! I recommend everyone to go to this around Christmas, it's so magical, and what's even better is that it's free entry! I do suggest that if you want to go ice-skating, ice-bar... All that jazz, book online first as the que to buy tickets is pretty hefty!

DAY 2:
- go shopping
- literally shop 'til you drop... My feet D:
- chill in hotel until you feel more human
- make reservations in the only available place you can think of - Maxwell's in Covent Garden, which I highly recommend for their cowboy beans, those things were incredible! Our dinner was ruined a little by some right snobby customers sat behind us. They complained about the silliest things, and although I do like to earwig, they complained far too much for me and Sam to properly talk and fully enjoy the meal.
- Explore again! You might realise that a lot of my pictures are taken in the night, this is because London is so much quieter at night, and so it's easier to look a specific things! That night me and Sam followed our feet with no specific sense of direction, however we saw some really cool things! We ended up in Somerset house, trying to get tickets for ice-skating, but there wasn't any spaces :(, we then went to Southbank, saw where This Morning is filmed (I had a bit of a fangirl moment), we then walked across the funky looking bridge that's in one of the Harry Potter films, pondered outside St Pauls cathedral, and then made our way to the tube back to the hotel.

- Pack and check-out of hotel
- Go to Paddington to leave luggage
- Go to Natural History Museum - surprisingly, I don't recommend going here if there is a massive que. It was pretty boring, apart from the dinosaurs, which we only saw a couple due to the other massive que to view the proper dinosaur section. Although it would've been cool to see, me and Sam had already qued to get in for an hour in the pouring rain, so to que up again was a big no-no!
- Go to the Science Museum located next door. Out of the two, I definitely recommend this museum!! If you only have time to check out one museum, definitely go here, there usually isn't as big of a que, and it is far more interesting and interactive.
- Go to Harrods, obviously! Harrods is one of those places that you visit, so that you can tell your mates that you've been. Totally cool, but leaves you feeling incredibly skint... I mean there was a TV going for over £17,000?! Me and Sam were stood there like wuuuut, and then a woman came over asking if we needed any help.... Errrr yes please, can you give me money so I can actually buy something here? Lol
- Go back to Paddington, get luggage and get a maccy's duhhhh
- Hop on board to first class, and eat your maccy's like a queen.

Still with me? Cos that's all folks!
If you read this whole post then you are an absolute legend - extra brownie points for you!
Thanks for reading, let me know if you agree/disagree with any of my opinions, and tell me if there's any other cool places in London to visit for my next trip up!



New Year, Fresh Start

Hey    ...wassup, helloooo

I know I'm a little bit late with this, but happy New Year everyone!!
Also, I know I'm a little bit late with the whole blog business... By about a year... But I want to assure every single one of you that I haven't fallen out of love with blogging. It's one of my fave past-times, and is actually probably my only hobby (apart from Facebook and Twitter... I have no life, help meeeee), it's just that I had to leave this world for a while because something terrible happened in my family :(
However, on the happier side of things I managed to bag myself a handsome fella!?! And also, I had to complete my A-levels (I got an A in Psychology, and 2 B's for both English subjects!), and sort out uni, and now I juggle a part-time job, uni, boyfriend anndddd life... So hopefully ya'll understand why I haven't been on here for a while!
I just wanted to let you guys know that I am still here, and I have a few posts planned, so watch this space :)

I'm looking forward to sharing what I've been up to, and all the other random bits that I happen to post about!

Feel free to comment on any ideas on what you'd like me to post, and I hope you've all had a lovely start to 2016!
