Highlights Of 2013

Tuesday, 31 December 2013

Hey Guys!!
I must say 2013 has been a very good year for me, I started YouTube which I am loving every minute of it, I also started this blog and am loving every minute of this to. Also a lot of other things happened this year like a big thing was getting married :D
So I thought I would share with you my highlights of the year :)


This month was a bit of a chilled month to be honest and we were basically taking this month to recover from Christmas and New Year :)


This month we spent quite a bit of time with family, as my sister came down with her children because we don't see much of them as they live up in the valleys :) Also me and Llewellyn took our cousin out for the day and spent time painting plates and eating McDonalds (ssshhh I was meant to be eating healthily)


Other than celebrating Nans Birthday, we spent this month with more family as my other sister came down with her two children, who also live in the valleys :)


This was the month I decided I wanted to start vlogging on YouTube and I started this because I was introduced to The Shaytards by my sister and just thought why not. I loved their family dynamic and the fact that I watched them and they reminded me of my family and the way we are with each other, so I started vlogging everyday and haven't looked back :)


This May we celebrated Chloes' 16th Birthday, not so much my baby sister anymore, it was weird though because the time just goes so fast as I can remember when she was a little dot, now she towers over me lol


We had another Birthday this month which was Laurens' 20th so we had food and drinks for that and was more family time. Also this month seen me, some close family and friends celebrating my Hen Night :) We had gone to see Hairspray, which was fantastic and had some food on Cardiff Bay :) It was weird celebrating my Hen Night though as usually I get invited to other peoples :)


So that meant that this month was the big day, mine and Llewellyns' Wedding day :D I must say that this was the most amazing day ever and couldn't have asked for better weather either, every bride must say this haha I also couldn't have asked for a better man to have come into my life, he is the most caring, generous and just overall amazing man and can't wait for many more years with him :D


August seen us have our family holiday and also it was my first time seeing horse racing and Scouting For Girls, both were fantastic didn't win anything though That was it for that month to be honest :)


This was when I decided to recreate my blog and just give it a new lease of life :) I am loving it so much more now than when I first decided to do a blog, I was going to use it as an everyday diary and didn't stick to it, hopefully this blog will have a nice future and lots more plans with it to :)


To be honest this month was a bit of a rollercoaster :( work wasn't going great, my health was starting to play up and was having a few personal issues, so to put it bluntly it was a shit rubbish month :(


November picked up and was a bit of a better month, I went Christmas shopping with Mum and we went to Bath Christmas Market which was so festive and really got me ready for December :)


This month must have been the most busiest of the year :) At the beginning we went away for the night in London & seen Wicked :) Then it was my Birthday which I cried my little eyes out because I got tickets to see McBusted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then it was more Christmas shopping and Christmas itself :D In between all this there was eating, drinking & lots of chocolate :)

From all that you can see it has been a very rollercoaster year and there has been a lot of ups and there has been just as many downs to go with it :) Hopefully next year is going to hold a lot more ups and hopefully some amazing opportunities :)

I apologise for the lack of pictures as for some reason they wouldn't upload :(

I Hope You Have All Had A Fantastic 2013
You Have An Even Better 2014

See You In The New Year!!!

London Shopping Haul

Monday, 23 December 2013

Hey Guys!!
So as you can see from Fridays post, if you've read it, I went to London last weekend for my Birthday and did a little shopping while there, as well as seeing Wicked.
So I thought I would share with you what I bought :)
The first place we went to was M&M World and it is fantastic in there, if any of you guys haven't been in there I advise you to its amazing. As soon as I walked in there you could just smell the chocolate and I love chocolate so I did say to Llewellyn if we could find out whether you could live in there :) unfortunately he said no :( So we had a look around and decided we wanted to get some mugs and also a magnet, we get magnets from everywhere we go, and obviously you can't go in there and not buy some M&Ms'. I had a green mug and Llewellyn had a yellow mug, as the green was the 'female' M&M and the yellow was the 'male' M&M.

After we went to M&M World we then jumped onto a train and went to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park :) I never seen such a big Winter Wonderland, the one we have in Cardiff isn't even half as a big I don't think :( It was amazing though all the little stalls/huts, all the rides were really cool to even though I don't go on rides but the one place we did go to was the Magic Ice Kingdom which as you can tell by the name was full of ice. They were ice sculptures not just piles of ice, don't worry. While in there you go to a certain point you can have you photo done on an Ice Carriage and of course that's what we did :) She took two and they were both so nice that we got the two as I didn't want to leave them there :)

Onto the Saturday then, which was our busiest day, the first place we went to was Madam Tussauds and it was so good. Their waxworks were amazing and are so life like, which sometimes they do freak me out a little :/ All we bought from there was the photos we had done at different photo points as we didn't really want anything from the gift shop, as I thought photos were a more lasting item :)
After that we then jumped onto another tube and went to the Apollo Victoria Theatre, which before I got there I had no idea what theatre I was going to as well as what show I was seeing. Once we got there then I found out we were seeing Wicked *cue really loud excited scream* I was so excited as I've wanted to see this for ages and it was part of my Birthday present :) While in there we bought a program which is full of photos from the show and I must say it is an absolutely fantastic show, I didn't want it to end :(
After the show we then jumped on yet another tube to go and have a wander around Harrods. The only thing I find with Harrods is some of the bits you walk around are so expensive it makes me sad as they have some really lovely stuff, especially when I seen the puppies they had there :) We then came across the Christmas part where it was full of decorations and everything Christmas :) We decided to show where we had been, we got a green Harrods 2013 bauble to put on our tree, we got green as that is the theme we went for this year, well its more multi-coloured :)
Then it was home time :(
I had a fantastic weekend there and will definitely go again as its so festive and I just love all the Christmas lights everywhere :)
Hope You're All Having A Good Week!!
See You Soon!!

Update :)

Thursday, 19 December 2013

Hey Guys!!
Well I did that post to let you know why I hadn't posted for a while and was all set this week to post some really good posts, then I got hit with tonsillitis :(
Monday, Tuesday & yesterday were literally spent in bed living on soup and juice as I couldn't swallow anything :( Today though I am feeling a lot better, just got an annoying tickly cough that I am desperate to get rid of now :)
There will be some Christmassy posts coming up over the next few days as I now have some Christmas cupcake moulds so I will be doing some of them, I am also going to be making my own Christmas tags for families presents so will do a post on that to :)
So keep your eyes peeled some for very festive spirited posts :)
Hope You're All Having A Good Week!!
See You Soon!!

Busy Busy Bee!!

Sunday, 15 December 2013

Hey Guys!!
I just wanted to do a quick post to apologise that there hasn't been many posts this week. Its been one of those weeks where it just seems like I'm constantly doing something.
This week has just been full of Birthday celebrations, going out with friends, Works Christmas Do and editing videos for YouTube!! There will be regular posts this week though as I have a few things that I have planned to do like baking and I'm going to do a post on the things I had for my Birthday. So I promise there is some exciting things to read this week!!
I don't know whether you readers are all the same, but don't you find the 2 week run up to Christmas is just so busy, it really seems like I have something to do everyday!!
I'm sorry its a bit of a quick post but I just thought I would let you know that there will be posts coming up and that I haven't forgot about you all :)
Hope You're All Having A Good Weekend!!
