So I have finally gotten round to writing this post after almost a month! I’ve been so busy with the start of the new semester and Loco starting back up that getting round to this post has taken much longer than I thought! Without further ado, I will go ahead and share with you all the lovely things I was lucky enough to receive for my 21st birthday! Continue reading “WHAT I GOT FOR MY 21ST BIRTHDAY”


Today marks one week since my big birthday! I feel like I’ve been waiting for it to come around for so long and that it was over far too quickly. I’ve been lucky enough to spread my celebrations across a whole week with  a family meal yesterday marking the final hoorah. Now that the celebrations are all over I can share with you all the amazing things I did to celebrate! Grab a cuppa as this might be a long one!  Continue reading “MY 21ST BIRTHDAY”


I feel like a bit of a hypocrite writing this post as Alex and I never get to spend anytime recently! However, I still maintain that Christmas is one of the most romantic times of the year and there are so many different activities you can do to shake things up a little bit. I thought I would share some of my favourite Christmas date ideas that I’ve either experienced myself or wish I had!  Continue reading “BLOGMAS – DAY 14: FESTIVE DATE IDEAS”


So, being the idiot that I am, I scheduled this post for the 11th January by accident instead of the 11th December – doh. So apologies for this very late instalment of Blogmas! I’m not gonna lie, this week has been a toughy. I really feel like I am being tested at the moment and my patience and mental wellbeing is really starting to wear thin. However, to counteract how rubbish I’ve been feeling, I’ve been thinking about all the things in my life that I am thankful for, especially at this time of year.

So yesterday marked 5 years since Alex and I became an item. Yep you heard me right.  5 YEARS! When I sit down and think about it that’s actually a really long time that has flown by. I’m 20 so I have been in a relationship with Alex for 1/4 of my life. To some that may be scary but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Here’s what we got up to celebrating our big day.  Continue reading “CELEBRATING OUR 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY”


Last Friday was Alex’s 23rd Birthday and as his present I decided to take him to see Shrek: The Musical at the New Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham. We saw the evening performance that began at 7pm which was a full house. We have wanted to see this show ever since it started as Shrek is one of our favourite animated films. As we are so busy during term time, I also thought it would be nice to get away for the evening and watch some theatre together. Here’s what we thought of the show… Continue reading “SHREK THE MUSICAL: REVIEW”


It feels like we’ve only just had the new year yet before we know it the shops are full of pink gifts and Valentine’s day is upon us! I’m not gonna lie I am a sucker for Valentine’s Day and anything romantic but for me it’s not about the presents or flowers. I use the day to reflect on my relationships and remember how lucky I am to have such a loving boyfriend, family and group of friends. Here’s what Alex and I got up to on our 5th Valentines as a couple.  Continue reading “OUR 5TH VALENTINE’S DAY”
