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 resort 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 🙂

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

6 things I wont miss about university this summer

Okay so we are all excited that summer is upon us right? We are all hoping it’s going to be a ‘hot’ summer, but what us lot in England tend to strive for is a little bit of sunshine that lasts at least longer than an hour! We don’t often get amazing weather in England and when we do it’s sun glasses and ice creams all round and it usually only lasts for one day but oh well! So if you’re a student like me you’ll be coming close to ending your first/second or maybe even third year in university and looking so forward to the summer ahead, am I right? On that note, I thought I would do a post on 5 things I wont miss about university this summer when I’m at home! 🙂

  1. Getting up at 9am for a lecture or seminar and being to tired to even open my eyes.

  2. Not having any food in the house and mentally making note of the edible items I wish I had in my fridge or cupboards.

  3. The mountains of coursework, assignments and deadlines!

  4. Carrying tons of library books home from the library.

  5. Having to decide between buying toilet roll or chocolate when I only have enough left for one option. (Don’t worry it’ll always be the toilet roll! haha)

  6. Trying to get on an already overcrowded bus to get to uni on time and hoping I won’t be the one the driver leaves behind because the bus is to it’s maximum capacity.

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 🙂

Sparkle Sparkle! – Vashti Embellished Shoulder Jumper in Mint from Fashion Union Review!*

Fashion Union is a wonderful online store that has some awesome pieces of clothing! I love regularly looking through what they have to offer and the prices are incredibly cheap for the quality and style they provide, so it is a definite go to when looking for some unique pieces of fashionable clothing.

I wanted to do another sample review for them because their service has always been excellent and the clothes they stock are beautiful and sophisticated but casual and edgy as well, so I luckily got to review the Vashti Embellished Shoulder Jumper in Mint*!

I anticipated the little packet that would come in the post in the next few days and I was excited, when it finally arrived I was pleasantly surprised with this little number. It’s a sweet pastel mint green and the quality of the material is really soft, just thick enough to be warm but not to chunky and overwhelmingly hot so it was perfect and the jumper itself comes with embellished shoulders which is a bright edition to a normal jumper! (Hint the title, sparkle sparkle :D)

In the photo’s below I chose to wear the jumper with a leather skirt and black tights because it was cold outside! But in my preference I believe that the jumper goes well with all types of clothing such as jeans but especially looks good with leather! 🙂

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 17 RAIN

So day seventeen is rain, miraculously in England the weather has been rather sunny the past few days when in fact it’s usually raining! so that made this day in the challenge the hardest yet and I had to think outside the box. So instead of just going in my shower and splashing the water around and calling that rain I decided to choose a photo I took back in November on Fireworks night and explain 🙂

Image

So the idea behind this photo is that the fireworks are the rain in this sense and the colours are bursting out like beads of rainfall 🙂

Soap & Glory Super Sit Tight Intense XS Body Firming Serum Review

Before I went on holiday I thought I would give the Soap & Glory Super Sit Tight Intense XS Special Super Strength Body Firming Serum because I had read a lot of reviews in magazines and online about how excellent it was and I thought I would give it a shot!

I do like Soap & Glory products although I do not buy them a lot I have tried quite a few things in their range and after reading that this body firming serum works I thought it was a good option for a quick go to before I went abroad! Well firstly the price is a little pricey (roughly £16.50 which was hard to part with!) in my opinion but I would say it was worth it overall, the bottle has roller balls on the top so you can roll it over your body and the serum glides on perfectly smooth & wonderful (Sometimes it’s a bit cold!) but the real crazy amazing thing is this serum HEATS UP! after you’ve put it on which is both tingly and strange haha!

Overall I believe the serum did make a difference in my opinion to my body,legs,thighs and butt – but everybody is different so I’d recommend giving it a go anyway! 🙂

Thanks for reading guys! Let me know if you’ve tried it/going to try it by commenting or tweeting me 🙂

Fashion Union Melodie Black 10 Pu Biker Jacket with Faux Fur Review*

Happy New Year Everyone!

I haven’t blogged in a while and that is because it has been exam period and also Christmas! I thought today would be an ideal day to start my post because it is now 2014. So a while ago I got in touch with Fashion Union, a really lovely and unique online fashion store that has a wide range of clothes and accessories at really good prices! They were lovely enough to send me a wonderful jacket to review for all my lovely followers, being winter I absolutely loved the jacket and thought it was an ideal sample of clothing to review so I was very happy! I got sent the Melodie Black 10 Pu Biker Jacket with Faux Fur* which you can find on their website or by clicking the banner at the side of my blog! When the package arrived it was packed really well, I opened it with haste and excitement and I got exactly what I was expecting but more! It was a really lovely jacket, I usually am rather fussy when it comes to coats and jackets because size and material is a big issue because in winter you want a coat that looks great but is big enough so you can wear jumpers and cardigans underneath without looking awful, and this jacket was great because it is big enough that I can wear those warm jumpers underneath and still looks amazing anyway.

Another advantage is this jacket can go with practically anything I wear, it is durable in the rain and is really warm – overall a big thumbs up! Fashion Unions customer service was excellent and even emailed to let me know if there would be any delays and such, they were one of the friendliest companies and I will be shopping there again! 🙂

Big thank you to Fashion Union, also I hope you all had a wonderful New Years!
