Selsey 2021 :)

On the 28th of August my family and I packed up our car and headed to the beach in Selsey in Chichester for the weekend which was so so nice πŸ™‚ We took Maya for lots of walks, chilled on the beach, had some lovely food and had a really relaxing weekend πŸ™‚ On the way to Selsey we popped into a place called Arundel which was such a lovely town where we went for afternoon tea which was delish πŸ™‚

Windsor 2021 :)

Windsor 2021 :)

On the morning of the 7th of August I jumped on a train to meet my two friends Hannah and Anna in Windsor which was so much fun πŸ™‚ When we first arrived the changing of the guard was happening which was absolutely amazing- we didn’t realise that it would be happening at that point but it was so so cool πŸ™‚

Once the changing of the guard was finished we then went into the castle and did an audioguide which was so much fun πŸ™‚ The castle is beautiful and we had so much fun looking round and seeing all of the amazing architecture and tapestries. We also looked around St Georges Chapel and I lit a candle whilst I was in there which is something I do in all of the chapels that I go to πŸ™‚

After our tour of the castle we went for some lunch which was really tasty! We then dumped our bags in the hotel and did a bit of shopping- we are all massive book nerds so popped into Waterstones and also WHSmith because I needed to buy an IPhone charger πŸ™‚

We walked towards castle while shopping and decided to finish our sightseeing for the day by walking along The Long Walk which is a long walk (hence the name :P) where there are processions towards the castle and it was lot of fun- it is a 50 minute walk each way but we were chatting as we walked so it was really nice πŸ™‚

After the long walk we decided to go for dinner at Honest Burger which was so so delicious!! I have been to Honest Burger once in London at the Holborn branch and it was so so nice πŸ™‚ I love the fact that as well as their signature burgers they have a burger of the month and each location has its own burger πŸ™‚

After dinner we headed back to the hotel and chilled which was lovely and organised ourselves for the next day πŸ™‚

The next day we woke up and headed out for brunch πŸ™‚ We went to a place called Browns which was right next to the river so we had a lovely view while we ate our food and had some smoothies and coffee πŸ™‚ The food was delicious and it was so much fun πŸ™‚

After food we then decided to have a wander along the river, we saw some swans, chatted and saw some other cool bits along the way and it was a lovely way to end our trip πŸ™‚ We went past Alexandra Gardens and saw some really cool fountains πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to Windsor and if you have what was your favourite part πŸ™‚

Friendsfest 2021 :)

Friendsfest 2021 :)

I have been wanting to go to Friendsfest for the last few years as I am a massive Friends fan!! I tentatively booked tickets for Friendsfest 2021 hoping that it would be allowed to go ahead and I am so so happy that it did πŸ™‚ I ended up going with my Mum and we had an absolutely AMAZING day πŸ™‚ When we first walked in and went to the left you started on the ‘Red Carpet’ and then moved onto the outside of Monicas door where you could re-create the iconic ‘floating heads scene’ which was so so much fun! Then you moved onto a selfie booth where they had lots of different signs with different quotes from the show πŸ™‚ Finally there was Phoebes taxi which was pretty cool πŸ™‚

We then moved onto Central Perk where there were three different official photo points and then ordered some hot chocolates and a blueberry muffin which was absolutely delish πŸ™‚ At this point we sat down to enjoy our drinks and food which was really nice- what I liked about Friendsfest and why it was able to go ahead as successfully as it did was because it was outside πŸ™‚

We then moved onto the next photo opportunity where you could recreate the title scenes, then we recreated the PIVOT scene which was so much fun and so funny! Then I did the “COULD I BE ANY MORE CLOTHES” scene which was so so cool and was done via green screen to make the experience more Covid friendly πŸ™‚

We then went for lunch and grabbed a slice of Pizza at Joeys Pizza and also went to the bar to get some cocktails πŸ™‚ The cocktails were all Friends themed which was really cool and they also had soft drinks and normal alcoholic beverages as well πŸ™‚ We then sat in front of the big screen which was really cool and they played some of the iconic scenes from the show πŸ™‚

Finally we had booked a Set Tour at 2.40 where you could do round and take photos in the three different apartments: Monica and Rachels, Chandler and Joey and then Ross/Ugly Naked Guys apartment πŸ™‚

Overall I had so so so much fun and I would highly recommend Friendsfest to any Friends fan πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you are a Friends fan and if you are who is your favourite character πŸ™‚

My 24th Birthday :)

My 24th Birthday :)

On Sunday 4th of July 2021 I turned 24 years old and I had such a nice time πŸ™‚ This will be the last year that I can say I am in my early twenties which definitely adds lots of pressure on me to get my life together as I head into my mid twenties! When I was younger I always thought that people in their early-mid twenties had everything together and were so grown up but now I’m at that point in my life and through talking to friends my age I can confirm that we’re all just making it up as we go along attempting to look like we know what we’re doing! Anyway quarter life crisis aside I had a lovely birthday weekend and I thought I would share on here what I got up to πŸ™‚ Thank you so much to all of my friends and family who made it so so special ❀ ❀

On the Saturday I went out for an afternoon tea to Fortnum and Masons with my Mum and my friend Barghavi which was so so lovely! The food was amazing and everyone there was so sweet πŸ™‚ I have wanted to go to afternoon tea at Fortnum and Masons for so long ever since my Mum went with her friend and bought back a slice of cake which we then ate that evening and it was one of the best slices of cake I have ever eaten so I was very very excited and it definitely lived up to my expectations πŸ™‚

After eating our body weight in cake, scones and sandwiches we headed to Camden which is one of my favourite places in London πŸ™‚ I love Camden because it has lots of different stalls and everytime I go I find a different stall that wasn’t there last time and that has amazing stuff that is right up my alley πŸ™‚

On the Sunday I spent the day chilling at home with my family and Barghavi which was so nice and needed after the busy day on the Saturday πŸ™‚ My Nan and Grandad popped round which was such a nice surprise because obviously with the pandemic I haven’t been able to see them as much as I would like so it made the day even more special being able to see them for some birthday cake πŸ™‚ My Aunt and Uncle also popped round and then later in the evening my brother Billy and his girlfriend came round for dinner and we ordered Wagamama πŸ™‚ I was also messaging friends throughout the day which was also so nice πŸ™‚

Overall I had an amazing birthday weekend and I can thank everyone who made it special enough πŸ™‚ The next post going up on this blog will be a What I Got For My Birthday so keep an eye out for that πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you would do on your perfect birthday weekend celebration πŸ™‚

Day in the Life: Brighton Day :)

Day in the Life: Brighton Day :)

On the 27th of April my Mum and I decided to go to Brighton for the day which was so so so much fun πŸ™‚ I absolutely love Brighton and consider it my home away from home πŸ™‚ We packed up our bags and headed to the beach just after 9am with Maya in the backseat attached to her seatbelt who was very confused why we were awake and out of the house so early! When we finally arrived in Brighton we parked and walked along the beach for a bit, grabbed some donuts and then kept walking until we reached the bandstand which is one of my personal favourite places in Brighton because its just so pretty πŸ™‚ We then headed back along the beach and grabbed some food with Maya asleep under the table because she was absolutely knackered out from all of the excitement of the morning! We then spent the next few hours shopping in the lanes- we found Lush, a Pet Emporium, Lucy and Yak, sweet shops and a few other little shops which was so much fun πŸ™‚ By this time it was around 3 o’clock so we headed back to the beach, bought some ice cream to eat and sat down watching the ocean which was so so nice πŸ™‚

Overall it was such a lovely day as we were really lucky and it was relatively warm but not very busy and I really hope we get to do it again in the next few weeks πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to Brighton and if you have what is your favourite place in Brighton πŸ™‚ If not then where is your favourite beach πŸ™‚

Day in the life: Mayas 2nd Birthday :)

Day in the life: Mayas 2nd Birthday :)

On the 2nd of February 2021 my dog Maya turned 2 so I thought I would throw her a little party to celebrate 😊 I had wrapped up loads of toys and treats for her and my friend Barghavi also popped round to see us (in our games room with the back doors open) which was so lovely πŸ™‚ I gathered together all of her presents and arranged them with some balloons I had bought and some banners on the door πŸ™‚ We then took her out for a long walk at the woods which she absolutely loved and then came back to give her a little cake called a woofin πŸ™‚ I had also made her some homemade biscuits from a pre-made mix that Barghavi had bought me for Christmas which was awesome πŸ™‚ I think Maya had a lovely day and I certainly did πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have any pets and if you do what you do for their birthday πŸ™‚

Day in my life: Snow day with Maya :)

Day in my life: Snow day with Maya :)

On the 24th of January I woke up to a layer of snow over the garden which is so so exciting!! It was the first time that Maya had seen snow which was so much fun and we went out to the garden to have a play and then my family and I took her to the park near us for a walk and grabbed some hot chocolates on the way πŸ™‚ I’m one of those weird people who absolutely LOVE snow so I had such a fun day πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments whether you love or hate the snow and why πŸ™‚
