What a year, It’s had up’s and downs but I got through it. I had some lovely adventures with my blogging friends, including Bluestone and a trip to London. I also got to visit some amazing places with Johny, such as St David’s cathedral, Carew’s Castle and the Isle of Wight. I faced a fear – holding a snake. I bought a car and past my driving test. Both Johny and I had surgery on the same day. I started the Access to Healthcare course. I got a new job. But most importantly spent loads of time with my family. Here’s just some of my pictures from 2016.
When I heard that the lovely Katie was organising a blogger event for the new Kiehl’s Cardiff store, I knew I had to go! Kiehl’s has always been a brand I have been longing to try but never had the chance to as there were no counters near where I live. I’d continuously hear the songs and praises from people using their products and was really intrigued to learn what knowledge of skincare they had.
Johny and I decided to go on a weekend away to the Isle of Wight and we had a lovely time exploring the island.
We made our way bright and early on Friday morning and traveled down to Southampton where we were catching the ferry from. We made good timing and were soon on the boat , making our way across the sea to the Island.
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind, to be honest I can’t really remember what happened. I had work – as usual busy busy. I had two hospital appointments. I had yummy food. I said goodbye to my family as they are all going on holiday for two weeks. House to myself, well and Johny. Oh and of course the cat. I’m off work in one of my jobs for two weeks myself so am going to work hard on my blog.
This week I’ve been busy working and also going to the gym with my cousin and sister. I also had a lovely time shopping with my mum, cousin and two sisters. Spent a bit too much money but oh well, it was worth it! Johny and I got to spend some together and we booked our ferry crossing for our holiday to the Isle of White.
I’ve really enjoyed this week! Busy working for the most part but managed to do a few things in between. Johny and I both had our haircuts, and I’m in love with my new style. I also did a bit of shopping. I picked up some mats and a Yankee candle air freshener for my car. I also got a few bits of stationary ready for college and some new bedding for my room.
On Sunday 24th July, I woke up early and headed on a lengthy journey to London, along with Charlee and Neesha.
Waking up at 5:30am and leaving Swansea Coach station at 7:00, we prepared ourselves for the exciting day ahead. The girls and I were heading to London for the #BigBloggerExpo event, held by Lauren and Abi. I was stoked to be going to such a great event, but also so pleased to be going to London. I hadn’t been since I was a little girl, so I was looking forward to seeing the different lifestyle aspect.
FeD Cardiff is a restaurant where you can help yourself to loads of different food from different countries. When Johny and I arrived we were greeted by the lovely Anand, who showed us around the different food stations, explaining all our options and then took us to our table.
