Hello everyone, as I sit writing this I feel very reflective of 2018. I’m pretty sure I said this in my Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018 and Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 I feel like this year has been a rollercoaster. Everything that has happened in the past 12 months, the good and the bad has shaped into a person I am so happy to be.Continue reading
Hello everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the festive season! As the year comes to an end I thought I would round up all my favourite blog posts from this year. I haven’t done this type of post before on my blog, so why not make a start now! Whilst I love all the posts I publish, there are always some that mean more than others. Or I just love in general!Continue reading
This summer has been an eventful one, so I thought I would do a post I have never done before: summarising my summer. In the three months I had off for uni so much has happened in such a short space of time. I went from dating someone to being single again. I have travelled to the beaches of Weymouth and visiting Scotland for the first time. I got a promotion at work, I have tried things I never thought I would and it has flown by!
Starting off with June I finished my HNC in the first week with final hand in for our assessments the week after. I have never been so stressed but also super proud of myself. I had such a great time with the end of year show, the theme was phobias so we really go to experiment and play with makeup. I absolutely loved my first year, which you can read more about my first year as an ‘older’ student here.Continue reading
This was our last day in this amazing city! I know I’ve pretty much said the same things about Edinburgh in Day One, Day Two and Day Three. But honestly it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I haven’t travelled extensively nor been abroad much. But this is definitely a good start!
Following on from my Day One in Edinburgh, Sunday was set to be a beautiful day. The night before we decided to watch the sunrise at Calton Hill. For us this was under 15 minutes away from out hotel. Plus Sunday was set to be the better day for seeing the sunrise. So with an alarm set for 4am we got up and got ready to see the sunrise.
The sun was due to rise at 4.38am, however on Google maps the route it took us, part of it was shut. So it took us longer to get to the hill. We arrived at the top of the hill just as the sun rose. It was beautiful. The sun rose over the water and turned the skies a pinky red. At Calton Hill there was also Nelson’s Monument, a view of Arthurs Seat and the National Monument. So we decided to make the most of our early start and view what else is on Calton Hill, it was quite a climb to get there at 4.30 in the morning!Continue reading
