Birthday and Wedding

Hey! It's been a while since I updated you on my life so I thought I'd do a quick update! It was my birthday a few weeks ago and I am now 19, I feel so old. I went out for a lovely meal and had one of my best friends round who I haven't seen for a while. I got some amazing presents, an iPad mini 2, a samsung galaxy s6 and the new deliciously Ella cookbook which I will be reviewing on my cooking chanal at some point.

The week after this, it was my boyfriends sisters wedding. It was a lovely setting just outside of Thirsk in the Crab and Lobster and I stayed over with my boyfriend in the Singapore-themed room which had it's own hottub which was pretty amazing. Here are some pictures from the day!

I had an amazing three course meal which is pictured above and a lovely time.
Hoped you enjoyed this!
Lots of love,

Uni life

Hey guys! If you saw my other post on my main blog you would see that I have been so busy settling into uni that I have simply not been thinking about blogging or anything like that so I thought I'd show you some pictures of what I have been up to in the last few weeks!

Some selfies with my friends at the Nottingham Christmas market. 

We made Christmas dinner and had our own little flat Christmas day! This was a rather drunken picture of  me and some flat mates in the early hours of "boxing day"

We had a go at the condom challenge that has been crazing on facebook. It was very funny!
Of course there are lots of pictures from general nights out...

Some pictures of me pratting around

And who could forget the night my flatmate got so drunk we had to take him to A&E....

Hope you enjoyed this!
Lots of love

Laser tag, bonfire night and going home for the weekend

Hey guys! This week I have started my IOD ten pound challenge, where I am in a group and the group that uses their ten pounds to make the most money for a cancer research charity wins! My just giving page is in the right hand corner of this blog so if you are feeling generous please donate a pound or more! You can read all about the charity on the page. We have been having meetings to discuss what we want to do in order to raise the money and we have some pretty good ones so far.

On wednesday our flat went to Bella Italia for the five pound student deal. I had spaghetti carbonara and it was delicious.

Afterwards we went to laser quest! It was so much fun as it was just the eight of us in there and we had the whole warehouse to ourselves. For the first game we played in teams and my group beat the other team by a mile. For our second game we played all for one and I came second to last I am afraid to say! It was a lot of fun though.

On thursday night we went out to a bonfire night, it was wet and muddy but it was nice! There were lots of rides their, none of which I went on due to it being a bit expensive (plus I am a massive wimp.)  Just look at that mud!

The fireworks themselves were very pretty however,

On friday I went home to Leeds to see my family. I had a nightmarish journey back but it was nice to see everyone again. On saturday night i went with my boyfriend and his family to his cousins wedding reception which was lovely. My boyfriend comes from quite a large family so there were lots of people there!

On sunday I had a relaxing day and did a bit of work and did some baking which was nice! I have missed being able to bake while being at university so it felt good to be back in the kitchen!

Hope you enjoyed this!
Lots of love

Hey guys this week has mainly been about getting things ready for Halloween! I have been really ill this week and so I haven't been able to join in with as much as I would have liked! Nevertheless on Wednesday I found the flat all decorated for Halloween.

On saturday night we went out for the event itself! My boyfriend came over for the weekend so it was lovely to have him here, we dressed up as pirates, Here are some pictures from the night!

Hope you had a good halloween!
Lots of love

Pan, free lunch and seeing the family

Hey guys! Sorry I didn't post last week on here, I had quite a boring week and forgot to take any pictures! On monday we went to see Pan in the cinema near us I bought some sweets before we went (don't tell anyone) so I had some things to chomp on! I personally liked the film although not many of my flat mates did!

On wednesday I had a volunteering talk on how to get involved with volunteering and signed up for some things. We also got free lunch which is always a bonus!

Afterwards I had to go to boots to get a repeat subscription, and while we waited for it me and my friend went to poundworld to pick up some stuff we needed. I got some cotton wool pads, some maltesers hot chocolate drinks which I am excited to try and a new shower gel which I am also excited to try.

On friday, I decided to treat myself to a starbucks! I had a nine to twelve lab session and an hour break before my two hour lecture so I decided I needed a treat after a hectic day! I got a mushroom and cheese croissant, an apple and walnut bun and of course a large pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream!

On sunday, my family came down to see me which was nice! I haven't seen them for a long time so it was lovely to be with them and my grandad. We went shopping because I needed lots of smart clothes for a business thing I am doing so I headed to primark! I may have to do a haul at some point if I can! In the evening we went for a yummy meal at a beefeater. I got meatball linguini and an amazing sticky toffee pudding.

On monday (today!) We went to Nottingham castle. We had a walk along the canal which was nice and autumnal and we passed the oldest inn in England!

In the evening we went for dinner at pizza hut which was delicious as usual so overall it's been a lovely weekend!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
Lots of love
