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…

Prezzo review: Rusticana & Honeycomb Cheesecake

My little Brother’s birthday last week, brought around another trip to Prezzo restaurant, and therefore another delicious dish of pasta (I’m sorry but I’m not a fan of pizza!) and a review to follow it! 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…

My Musical Bucket List

Hello! If you didn’t already know, I am a HUGE musical fanatic! I love performing as it is, but there’s something about musicals that (without meaning to go too into all the mushy stuff), just fills me with happiness and longing to be up on the stage with the performers. The musical numbers are just…

A New Year, A New You. Welcoming 2016

Hello, and welcome to 2016! I’ve always wandered why so many people enjoy the whole idea of having a New Year and a fresh start. I’ve never really needed a fresh start as the New Year’s that I have witnessed, I’ve always been too young really, so the New Years, just meant that I was to…

Christmas Playlist

Seasons Greetings! Oh My Goodness! It really is the ‘most Wonderful Time Of The Year’ and I am so very excited! My Mum seems to be constantly doing an impression of Scrooge or The Grinch at the moment, but I have been in full Christmas-spirit since bonfire night atleast, most probably before that! I just…
