8 random little things I love!

If you had to think of 8 random things you love, what would they be? Some may come to you straight away and others may take a while and then you think “I love that!” and you had forgotten why you love those things! Well I thought I would do a list of 8 random things I love, some might even be the same as you! 🙂

  1. The sound of rain – There is something so peaceful about the sounds of rainfall, I like when it properly pours down heavily and the sound as it hits the ground and all the houses. (I don’t however like getting cold and getting my hair wet though!)

  2. Eating delicious goodies – muffins, cakes, cookies, brownies the list is endless and to me nothing is better than coming home from uni, sitting down with a cup of tea and a muffin with a magazine or newspaper!

  3. Honey Boo Boo – If you don’t know who this little girl is Google her! To some she’s an inspiration, to others she’s full of comedy gold as the quote goes, I remember watching her and her family in the first series like WHAT AM I WATCHING?! but I love it and I love the meme’s and GIFS that come with the fame of being Honey Boo Boo!

  4. Funny animals – Oh how magical it is that the internet is flooded with animals doing all sorts of funny, crazy and cute things!

  5. When a great song comes on the music channels, turning it up super loud and jumping around the room – There’s really nothing more to add to that one ahah!

  6. The feeling I get when I finish an essay or assignment – OH RELIEF!!! No more staying up all night, I can actually sleep, eat and do whatever I want again! Wooooo!

  7. Holiday excitement – You know when you’re going away on holiday or you just booked a holiday and you imagine yourself chilling on the beach, relaxing with a cocktail in hand or trekking and seeing all the sights and you get all excited inside!

  8. When I write blog posts + other bloggers appreciate them – Okay so sometimes I lack motivation to blog, but I love it when I put up posts and I get lots of lovely comments and likes, it’s always lovely to talk to other bloggers and see that they like my little blog 🙂

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 14 HANDMADE

So I went looking for something I handmade around my flat because today is the keyword ‘Handmade’. I love to make things, I’d say I am creative but whether I am any good at it is another story! The reason I love making things is because I personally find it fun and relaxing, so I tend to spend my time doing some arty things when I am not overflowed with coursework or doing seminar reading for uni! 🙂

The handmade item I chose is something I did last Summer after a day spent in London, my partner knows I love sharks so brought me a 3D wooden shark model kit to construct from the natural history museum so I spent a whole afternoon fixing all the pieces together to make a 3D shark and then I painted it! 🙂

Any things that you like to make or are proud of having made? Let me know! 🙂

Bella Vita – Snow Leopard Print Scarf Review*

*So a little while ago I emailed Bella Vita Boutique, a very cute and sweet online boutique that sells a range of quirky accessories such as scarves and bracelet’s in a range of unique designs and colours! I automatically adored a certain scarf that I saw on the boutique’s website store and wanted to do a review of it immediately, I emailed to see whether they would do a promotional exchange with me and they happily agreed much to my delight! I am so happy and honoured to get to do a review for this cute scarf and boutique and would definitely want to help promote their boutique again in the future!

Today in my post I got a little parcel and inside was a beautifully hand wrapped present (my scarf) the whole packaging itself was so pretty! Pink tissue paper and a cute pink ribbon covering the scarf neatly made me super excited to open it.

Today I wore this beautiful soft and stylish snow leopard scarf with a black vest, black leather leggings and a chocolate brown long sleeve cotton cardigan, the chocolate cardigan and the snow leopard scarf complimented each other beautifully and worked well with the black leather leggings and black vest. I would recommend every fashion blogger and fashion obsessed girl to take a look at Bella Vita Boutique and check out the amazing pieces they have in stock, at super cheap prices!

Busy Busy Busy

Lately I haven’t blogged as much as I usually would because of various reasons one of which being the dreaded coursework and exam season! 😦 However I am trying to still blog at least once a day still to keep you all interested, so the other day as you may have seen my post I got offered an internship with a fashion magazine and website as their social media and blogging intern which I thought was great and accepted however a few days into it I realised ‘what am I doing?’ I want to be a fashion journalist not part of fashion media and marketing sector, so I sent a regretful email declining my internship probably one of the only people in the world to make that move but I knew I had to have a journalism or editorial internship to fulfill my needs and ambitions.

After that I got a happy email from Fashion156.com saying I was successful and I was now a Fashion Ambassador for them, which is super exciting! 🙂

With Summer just around the corner and my exams to come first I am a little stressed lately and a bit on edge about everything, I am really hoping that this Summer will be great and my exams go well as well but I have to admit I am looking forward to moving into our new apartment in July too!

Well that’s all for now guys 🙂 – Enjoy this photo of cute meerkat babies!

10 Things I Want To Do From My Bucket List

A while ago (roughly 2 years ago) I started writing a bucket list of things I want to do, being ambitious and someone who loves new things and adventures my list has some pretty crazy things on it, but also some very cool easy going things that I wanted to do and try as well! My list is phenomenally long going into the hundreds so I thought I’d share 15 random things that are on it! 🙂

  1. Swim with sharks – I genuinely really want to do this more than anything, I love sharks they’re my favourite animal and I know an incredible useless amount of knowledge on them as well but I think they’re great because they’re fierce and beautiful at the same time. I think to start with I want to swim with sharks in an aquarium as I’m quite scared of the sea, but if I get over that fear then I’d like to swim with some different types of shark in the ocean as well, maybe Black tip reef sharks and whale sharks 🙂
  2. Ride on an Elephant – I would love to ride on an Elephant, they’re so big and quite cute and I’d love to have a photo taken with one!
  3. Go Skydiving – It would be undeniably scary but that’s part of the thrill I guess, plus you’d see some killer views on the way down which would be something unforgettable!
  4. See Northern Lights – I know lots of people who want to do this as well, I think this would be amazing and a beautiful experience which I’d treasure.
  5. Make 1000 Origami Cranes – There is a Japanese legend that whoever makes 1000 origami cranes will be granted a wish, this is something I’d love to do as I learnt how to make origami cranes really well, its just it would take a crazy amount of time!
  6. Experience Holi or a colour festival – Holi is a festival celebrated mainly in India or Nepal and a colour festival is celebrated in South Africa Durban, I’d love to go to one of these events the powders looks so colourful and bright I think it would be amazing.
  7. Go to a fashion show – I’d love to go to a big worldwide fashion show in one of the major cities this would be amazing to see the catwalks and designers as well as the upcoming latest styles.
  8. Hold a bird of prey – Not many people wish to hold a bird of prey but I’m a little different, I love animals and I love to admire their beauty and birds of prey like Eagles are much like sharks in the sense that they are fierce but also beautiful.
  9. Swim with Manta rays – I think manta rays are really incredible, I love how smooth and calm they are and I think it would be an unforgettable experience to swim with them.
  10. Travel everywhere on my travel list – This is a big one that wont be completed for a long time, but will eventually be completed because I love travelling and aim to finish my list 🙂

Well that’s ten random things from my bucket list! Hope you enjoyed!
