#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!!

#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!

#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?

So… Wedding Dress Shopping

So, I went wedding dress shopping for the first time with my mum and there are so many things that I just didn’t know beforehand. For instance; bra or no bra, tan or no tan, where do you even start???

If you’re like me and slightly body conscious,  getting naked in front of what is a complete stranger can be quite unnerving! However, the experience that I did have was so much fun…. I’ll let you in on some hints and tips on what to expect when heading out for your first dress shopping (note… not fitting!!)

Golden Bee Cinema

So tonight I visited a roof top cinema to watch Bridesmaids!

This is one of my absolute favourite films and it was so much fun watching it under a blanket on sofas high above London’s Old Street.

Hidden away Golden Bee bar is the perfect location  for such an event. The staff are friendly and polite and there is bottomless popcorn which is never a bad thing!!

The drinks are reasonably priced but there is a minimum card spend of £15 so if you don’t fancy splashing the cash I suggest you get some money out before you go.

Golden Bee are showing films all the way until December but the tickets do sell out incredibly quickly so if you would like to go book in advance.
