What I learnt from 2016

I’m gonna jump right into this one as it’s a pretty long post, but here are 17 things that I learnt throughout the course of 2016. Enjoy! No. 1: THAT I AM STRONGER THAN I THOUGHT My body can be pushed further both physically and mentally than I’ve taken it before. In situations where I know…

Prom

A relatively new idea here in the UK that has been taken from the USA’s high school tradition, is Prom, which we now have here in England twice during our school lives; the end of year 11 (16), and year 13 (18). Due to finishing my final year of school this summer, my prom took…

Summer Holiday reading 2016

Immersing myself in a good book has always one of my favourite past times, and during my very recent family holiday to Gran Canaria, I’d planned to catch up on the much-needed reading I’d been missing out on during exam season, and had ordered 3 new young adult books especially for the trip: ‘All the…

Lush Review; Mini Comforter Bubble Bar

“Cosy, comforting blackcurrant cuddle in a bubble bar.

Seemingly the Robinson’s current preference of restaurant at the moment, with such a wide variety of Italian dishes available, there is something…

Family day out: Cotswold Wildlife Park

For the last day of our Easter Holidays, we wanted to really make the most of the day by having a ‘family day out’, despite being a  member down, and later on having to battle against the typical English weather (although this didn’t stop us). After much deliberation (and the fact that the tickets we…

Lush Review: Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic

‘A pass the parcel gift – each layer has something different to offer. This is not for a quick bath because it takes its time, this bath bomb. Its layers of golden lustre, dazzling colours and soluble gold stars are a wonder to behold.’- Lush I know this is a review of a Christmas bath…

18th BIRTHDAY!

I am officially an adult! Ohh my goodness I am so old now! If you hadn’t already guessed by the title, I had my 18th Birthday a couple of weeks ago, on the 20th March and I spent the day with my family, being treated like a true Princess. It is so weird to actually…
