#Day5 – #100daysofhappiness

Now I’m not going to lie to you, these posts have been slightly sober for my liking.

So to day 5 – Wine.

I love a glass of wine at the end of a long day. Whether it be socialising with friends, curled up watching a movie or paired with some beautiful food it really can’t be beaten in the alcohol world.



#Day4 – #100daysofhappiness

Day 4 brings my ever growing collection of dinosaurs!

I love dinosaurs and have spent hours at the Natural History Museum (in London and New York!!) looking at the dinosaurs and being amazed that they used to live on this exact planet so many years ago! It’s also interesting to see that some animals that are still alive are descendants from the dinosaurs!

The other reason I am absolutely in love with this photograph is that in the background (past the truly incredible examples of dinosaurs haha!) is a photograph of myself, my little brother and my great-grandmother who I was lucky to be able to meet. My Nan taught me my manners, how to behave like a lady and to truly love everything in life and I really do believe it is because of her support and advice when I was a child that I am the person I am now.

So day 4 is to dinosaurs and life lessons – two things I never thought I would ever say in the same sentence!!

day4 - dinosaurs

#Day 3 – #100 Days of Happiness

20 years ago, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was released in the UK.

I have loved every book, every film, every character (even the evil and mean ones!!) It really is a franchise that has had an impact on children’s and adult’s lives.

The four houses represented something different for each of us and we all knew which we really wanted to be in. For Griffindor you were brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. For Ravenclaw you were wise, intelligent, creative, clever and knowledgeable. For Hufflepuff you were loyal and patient, dedicated to hard work. And finally for Slytherin, the cunning, resourceful, intelligent and determined.

So for my #day3 of #100daysofhappiness it goes to you J.K Rowling and a series that has transformed a generation!



#Day 1 – #100 Days of Happiness

So I took and impromptu trip home this weekend to see my family and this loveable rascal called Angus.

Definitely, love cuddles off this one but we did fall out slightly when he laddered my tights! Haha!

Angus has been part of the family for a few years now and it’s so lovely to have a little buddy to watch Love Island with me (especially as he can’t judge my poor television taste).



#100 Days of Happiness

So … why did I start such a crazy, time-consuming thing?

I’m currently organising my wedding and although the day is obviously about me and my other half getting hitched, I’ve realised that I can no longer have a conversation without somebody asking me how the preparations are going! I can’t even remember what I talked to people about beforehand.

Now please don’t get me wrong, I am so excited about the wedding and really looking forward to spending the rest of m life with him but have recently been feeling that this is all my life is about (and to be fair, planning this thing really is all encompassing!!)

Therefore I have decided it’s time for some self-love.

100 days – 100 pictures – 100 posts

This won’t be so hard right?


Loss is such a complicated emotional state – a mixture between remembering the fantastic times you had together and the crushing emptiness you have inside when it’s gone.

I never really thought I had an emotional connection to anything until now. I mean all those memories, conversations and helpful reminders!

Some of you may have realised by now that I’m not talking about a person but in fact … my mobile phone! 

I am so embarrassed that I feel like this but I am genuinely gutted that I have lost my beautiful little Samsung. 

I think the worst thing is the phone numbers and the photos that I hadn’t backed up that I will now never be able to get back. 

Turns out that leaving your phone in the back of a taxi isn’t the best idea and you most definitely will never see that precious part of your life again.

It has made me realise however how completely reliant I was on the device. When asked how to get somewhere I couldn’t even work it out. I have gone from being able to read a map to not even trying anymore because of Google! 

I fear for the lives of children growing up and wonder what the future holds for those who have never been without the internet on a mobile phone! 

Anyway enough negatively – I have moved over to the dark side and now have an iPhone (which I definetly don’t know how to use yet!)
