Life Update!

Hello There, welcome back.

Some of you will have noticed that I’ve been gone for a good couple of months now, and being totally honest it’s purely because I have been out and enjoying the real world. I’ve always been a person that struggles with balancing the outside and online worlds, and so this break has been much needed.

So, with that being said, I thought it would be easier to update you in one post rather than several instagram posts and clogging up your feeds.

Over the summer I worked as a Play Worker for my counties Playscheme, and it is honestly so much fun. My day consisted of driving to site, setting up some games, painting faces and just ensuring that the children had as much fun as possible. Then in the afternoon I would drive to another site and do the same again. I made so many friends this summer and I’m really grateful for that, there really is some wonderful people around.

I attended more than my fair share of parties too!

I also went for a little stay in a caravan in North Wales. Whilst I live there, it’s not a place I tend to explore often, and I’ve probably taken it for granted in the past. Wales is STUNNING!

I’ve been to Manchester for days out, discovered the beauty that is Base Bar and rekindled my love of baseball. I have of course enjoyed so much Taco Bell too.

I went to my first Pokemon Go night too. It was at Chester zoo, and I will be totally honest I just saw it as cheap entry to a zoo that I adore, and I thought I would be able to bag a Dole Whip while I was there… I was so wrong. They closed off half the zoo and that included the Dole Whip stand in Islands, so I was devastated. However, the pokemon catching was a lot of fun, even if there wasn’t anything new or exciting. I did so many steps that day too so it was all good.
If anyone wants to add me as a friend, my trainer code is: 5310 8665 2356

I actually completed my first jewelry order over summer too, which was so bloody exciting. I’ve not had much time to put anything together for a short while now, but my first order definitely boosted my confidence and the feedback made me smile even more!

I went to so many quiz nights. Every Sunday my local pub hosts a quiz and it honestly the funniest night, and is probably the highlight of summer. Of course we absolutely smashed the Pixar themed night, complete with Sulley costumes, and I’ve even dressed up as a member of Kiss. I bloody love my quiz team and I hope they’re still winning without me… Ken Dodd’s Dad’s Dogs Dead!

I went to the baby shower of a really good friend, and we got to catch up. It was so nice to spend time with her, and meeting the new little princess was so lovely! She is so gorgeous and an absolute dream!!

There was a tour of Anfield somewhere in there too. I’m not an avid football fan, and I certainly don’t support Liverpool (I’m a Sunderland gal!) but my boyfriend does, and so when we had a random day off together with no plans, we decided to make the most of it and take a trip. To be fair, it was actually quite interesting and there was some cute photo opportunities so I guess it was worth it.

Matt turned 25, and so I showered him with gifts for our trip to Walt Disney World next year, and I made him a cake. It was my first ever attempt and to be honest, it could have been so much worse! He absolutely loves Dwayne Johnson and WWE so I had to make it special… what do you think!?

We took Matt’s gorgeous niece Freya to build-a-bear for her birthday bear, and whilst I’m almost certain that I had more fun, it was such a cute day.

I turned 23, and I was spoilt with a FitBit and a Dolce Gusto coffee machine, so now I’m motivated and caffeinated there really isn’t any stopping me! Big thank you for the cards and gifts and well wishes. You’re all far too kind!

Finally, I moved back to Sunderland to start my final year of University, and I couldn’t be more excited. My last academic year was such a nightmare, and so I’m ready to celebrate the fresh start, and end my time at University with a bang. It hasn’t been an easy road, but I’ here to make it worth it. Please stay tuned as I will be needing your help with my dissertation soon!

The summer has honestly been a lot of fun, even with all the stresses. My wardrobe and Disney Collection has grown along with my smile and that’s the important stuff.

If you stuck around to the end, you deserve an applause.
What did you all get up to over summer?

All will be back to normal soon, and I’ll stop rambling.

Meet the Blogger


This is a little bit of a different post for me, and I can completely understand if you hate it. But at the same time, we’re all a little bit nosey and I figured this might help you to get to know me a little better. I was totally inspired by Lucy (LucysRoomToys) and her #MoreAboutMeMonday on instagram.

I figured it was best to keep things short and sweet because I drone on enough as it is. So here are some little bullet points and I’ll include a little gallery at the end.

  1. I am 22 Years old, my birthday is September 11th.
  2. I’m half British and half American. My dad was from Texas, which means I am a dual national, it also explains why I love Woody so much… he’s a Cowboy!
  3. I’m a university student, and I’m actually about to go into my final year. I did two years of a Psychology course at University of Sunderland before changing to a Media, Culture and Communication degree at the same university, which means I’ll have done a total of five years of University by the time I am finished next summer..
  4. I fundraise for the UK Sepsis Trust annually in a big event. It started last year and we’re going to Carry it on as long as possible. So far we have raised a little under £8000 in memory of my Dad.
  5. I sing, and was in my county choir for just over 10 years. We even did a tour of Krakow, Poland. I miss it so much.
  6. I love Rapunzel but Cinderella is my favourite princess.
  7. I love making jewellery. I find it so therapeutic, and I would love to start selling some of my creations.
  8. I have never seen a Star Wars film in my life. I realise this is sacrilege, but it is completely true.
  9. I have two tattoos, one on my ankle in tribute to my dad, and another on the top of my back in tribute to the role music plays in my life. I would love to get more.
  10. I LOVE dogs.

For those of you that have stuck around to the end, thank you!

I would love to know more about you too! Comment a little fact about yourself below…
