I can’t lie, with everything going on starting a new job and life in general I forgot about writing these posts! My last update was at the end of June, which you can read about here, which feels like forever ago!Continue reading
My last day in Edinburgh, my train left at 1 and I was glad I picked a later train to go home rather than a 9am train. I got up early to finish packing my suitcase, have breakfast and make sure I had everything I needed for my final outing. You can see what I got up to on my first and second day here, my third day here and my fourth day here.Continue reading
As I had such a busy day on my second day, which you can read about what I got up to here, I decided to have a chill day. I had originally wanted to go to Holyrood Palace, but as the Queen was staying there it was closed to the public. Sabrina does a few different tours in Edinburgh, so it made sense to to do one of hers!Continue reading
After unexpectedly having some extra time on my hands, which you can read about here. I decided to treat myself and go on holiday, this time however I would be going solo. I was a little nervous at first as I’ve never been on holiday by myself before, but also excited for a new adventure.Continue reading
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!
After spending two days in Edinburgh, Day One and Day Two, Monday was our last full day in Edinburgh. We had booked The Real Mary Kings Close Tour. This had been recommended to me from my hairdresser who went to Edinburgh I think last winter. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the tour, I had looked at it online and thought it looked pretty cool to do.
Our tour was booked for 11am, which meant we were able to have a well deserved lay in and a chill morning. The tour lasted an hour and it was so interesting! It was about the people who lived in Mary Kings Close in the 1600’s and their way of life. Our tour guide Chris T was so good at his job, making his character seem real. He knew all his facts and was able to answer any questions anyone had.Continue reading
