Day 2 – My last holiday destination!

So day two of my little blog challenge I made was to describe the last holiday I went on! I love talking about holidays as much as I love going on them and I also love to read other bloggers describe their holidays as well so I thought this would be a good one to add to the challenge when I was thinking it up. So without further ado…

My last holiday destination was: Gran Canaria!

So lets start with the basics – where is it? if you didn’t already know then Gran Canaria is part of the canary islands which is a little off the coast of north west Africa but the island themselves are apart of Spain. So what was is like? Well it was like paradise! The weather when we got their was surprisingly lovely for January, we only had rain I think one night for the whole week we were there and the rest of the time it was hot but there was also a constant breeze which made it bearable.

It took a while to get to Gran Canaria by plane approx I think 4 hours and 30 minutes (it isn’t the longest flight I’ve ever been on but it was still tough!) I get unsettled and then I have to move around but I generally do enjoy flights, on the flight as well I was quite anxious because it was the first holiday we had booked all alone, done ourselves and paid for and it was just going to be the two of us in a different country so I was a bit anxious! but luckily all went to plan smoothly and once we arrived it was night time there, we got off the plane and found out coach to go to the resortΒ and off we went.

Booking into our resort was easy enough, we got our room card and got told all the essentials and we went to find our room in the night time darkness with all the other holiday makers following suit. Like I said it was dark so we didn’t see much of the resort that night for obvious reasons but in the morning we were just blown away by how beautiful it was and how comfortable we felt there – Plus we had a random cute kitten outside our apartment every night which was adorable!

We went all inclusive so we got breakfast, lunch and dinner and late night snacks and drinks all included which was lovely. Every night after dinner we tended to go watch the entertainment for the night and have a few drinks and such which was lovely and then throughout the week we did some other little exciting bits like finding the beach, exploring the city, playing mini golf and eating at a panorama sea view restaurant and seeing the famous sand dunes!

But that was mine and my partner’s last holiday all wrapped up for you, I hope you enjoyed it! I thought I would wrap it up now because I could just go on forever πŸ™‚

So I hope you’ll be around for tomorrows post on day 3 which is 5 things I dislike!

Day 1 – 10 Facts about me!

So I started my little blog challenge a few days later than I originally planned but let’s get a move on now it’s started! So day 1 was 10 facts about myself to share with you all. I’ve done a few of these before so apologies if you’ve already read a fact or two I’ve put before πŸ™‚

  1. I have a double jointed thumb. I happen to think it’s pretty cool, I always used this to my advantage playing thumb wars!
  2. In less than a years time I will be graduating!
  3. I like to put my make up on in the morning, wash my hair and paint my nails. I know some people hate these tasks but I love them!
  4. I think I’m allergic to peel off face masks. This could of course be fact but also maybe just me assuming, as I’m not sure… (my skin starts burning, gets red and irritated and then stings when I use them so who knows!)
  5. Sometimes I get overly worried and panicky.
  6. Sometimes I am confident in myself, others times not so much.
  7. I love Lasagna and cheese more than I should.
  8. I have irrational fear of seals, killer whales and crocodiles.
  9. I love sharks, they’re my fav!
  10. I love going on holiday. (But doesn’t everyone!)

So that’s my little list of facts about me and I hope you liked it, tomorrow will be day 2 which is describing the last place I went on holiday so stick around! πŸ™‚

15 Day Blog Challenge!

So it’s been a little while since I last blogged and the last post I had was an opinion based poll to find out which posts are most interesting to all you lovely followers and also which subjects I should post more often on! I thought that I would make a little 15 day blog challenge for my blog because I prefer to make my own and I quite enjoy being creative with it anyway. The main reason I did only 15 days is down to the fact that when I made my 30 day photo challenge I found it immensely hard to post everyday on time and dropped behind now and then cause I just got busy with coursework etc. So I am hoping this one will go better! πŸ™‚ (Fingers crossed!)

You can join in or use this photo for your own blog if you wish just let me know! πŸ™‚ I shall be starting tomorrow! x

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 16 A BOOK

So day 16 is a book and I thought that I would take a little picture of my first aid book because like I said in a previous post I want to be able to learn first aid by the end of this year, I’m hoping to do a course later on this year to gain a certificate to say I know first aid properly but reading this book helps and gives me a head start. Further to this my dad actually loaned it to me so it means a lot in some senses πŸ™‚

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 13 FILM

I love films! I love movies and the cinema, cosy days and nights snuggled up on the sofa under a duvet with my partner watching a DVD with tons of sweets or sitting in the cinema with ice cream & snacks waiting for the movie to start, watching those terrible yet funny and intriguing trailers and ads! πŸ™‚

So yesterday was day 13 and the keyword was film as you would’ve guessed by now, I’m posting a day late as I was having a film night last night and was to fixated watching the movies that I accidentally forgot to post till now but I did take a photo and the photo is some of our movie collection!

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 3 TECHNOLOGY

Hey everyone!

I just want to firstly say a massive thank you to the recent new followers, the followers who have been there from the beginning and the ones who joined along the way! Your support for my growing blog has been immense and I am so grateful there are people who appreciate what I write & enjoy looking at my blog πŸ™‚

I have received many comments over the past few days and they have all been so lovely! So thank you and please keep it up because I love to hear what you all think and if you’re enjoying it πŸ™‚

Anyway moving on! Yesterday was day 3 of the photo challenge, I didn’t get to upload this yesterday because for some reason my WordPress wouldn’t load! But success because today it did and I am here writing this post! πŸ™‚ So choosing something that represents technology was tough because I didn’t want to go for the cliche things but after much deliberation I decided that the best photo is my iPhone background.

My iPhone is something I use everyday, I think to me it represents that technology has come so far considering the past that now everyone can have a piece of a growing industry themselves, not only this but I think it represents the amount of people that are technologically advanced nowadays and the growth in consumerism.

Well hope you enjoyed my 3rd photo, day 4 will be up tonight and it’s a pet/animal!

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 2 FOOD

So today is my second day of my 30 day photo challenge, today’s topic or keyword is FOOD! I myself am a big foodie, I love food and I love making it and presenting it as well. So after a long hard think about what to take a photo of today I chose my dinner and this is because it is one of my favourite meals! Spaghetti Bolognese! πŸ™‚ As as student my cooking abilities were terrible to begin with but now I can happily say I can cook a wide range of meals and make up my own as well from top of my head so that’s helpful πŸ™‚ Anyway here is my photo for day 2!

Day 3 tomorrow will be TECHNOLOGY so stick around πŸ™‚

The 30 Day Crunch Challenge

So I decided to attempt the 30 day crunch challenge, something which has been circulating the internet for some time now and after reading reviews from celebrities and other girls saying it worked I thought I might as well give it a go!

Crunches are basically sit ups and this is to tone and build your stomach muscles, something which I particularly want to do in preparation for Summer. So I will attach the picture below for the amount of crunches you need to do each day, I am currently on day 3 so tomorrow is my day of rest luckily! But I can definitely feel it working already, my tummy muscles are starting to get tighter and I can see a change as well in before I started and 3 days in already.

Lately I feel as if I need and want to get fitter so I spent ages trying to find something, I didn’t want to diet or do some crazy detox so I think for now I will stick with exercise which is always good and healthy. So I will let you know how I am progressing with that (or if I give up!) and hopefully after day 30 I will have a toned tum! πŸ˜€
