grape and olive christmas showcase 2018 swansea meal buffet set menu * Huge thanks to Grape and Olive for inviting me to their Christmas showcase event. It in no way has altered my views.

It’s never ever too early to think about Christmas. Well, that’s what I think anyway. The new academic year always makes me start to gear up for Christmas since it’s the next big event for me to look forward to as soon as my birthday is done. So, from the second week of September I’m already planning out presents and meals. I was extremely thankful to be invited to the Grape and Olive’s Christmas Showcase this year where they were sharing with us some of the items of their three Christmas menus. View Full Post

Hey, guys! I learnt that mindfulness day was about a week ago, so really this post would have been better timed to go up then. But oh well! It’s here now and that’s what matters! Over the past couple of months I’ve attempted to look into mindfulness in a bid to help calm my depression down. Whenever I looked online or asked anyone how to help my brain, they said that mindfulness was the way to go. Before that, I’d heard the word batted around a lot. It was always in news articles, on twitter and the hot topic of conversation whenever mental health was bought up.

birthday

If you know quite well, you’ll know that I have been absolutely dreading turning twenty. People have told me that it’s stupid to be scared of it and that I’m still young. But it’s not that I think I’m old. Saying goodbye to being a teenager has been a little bit scary for me. Even though I went through a lot of ups and down, I really did enjoy those years. Whenever I thought about my twenties, I thought about scary adult decisions that I was going to have to make. I wasn’t ready to grow up and have to act more mature.

I turned twenty yesterday and suffice to say, I’m no longer scared about my twenties. My birthday ended up reminding me that as scary as certain things might be. That’s just life. It’s not really anything to do with age. And as many scary decision as I’m going to have to make over the next couple of years, I’ve have an army of people behind me with my best interests at heart. I know they’ll be there to help guide me, give me advice, be a shoulder to cry on and comfort eat with me. What more do I need? View Full Post

This is not a post I should be writing. I refuse to admit that I need to say goodbye to being a teenager. How is this happening? What’s going on? I don’t understand!… Okay, I think that’s my panic over but I’m not making any promises. 

This feels really weird but yeah. I’m soon going to be saying goodbye to being a teenager and welcoming in my twenties. And whilst I’ll always celebrate my birthday because I’ve managed to make it through another year with all the good, the bad and the ugly, it’s just peculiar to think that I’m going to be a twenty year old. 

My teenage years did teach me a lot though and there’s a lot I’m thankful for. So, I thought I’d share with you guys some of the lessons that I’ve learnt in the past seven years. Alongside an interesting collection of photos from the past seven years. Here goes nothing! 

1) Appreciate your parents

Hey, guys! I’ve tried to keep myself busy over summer. However, there’s always time for a good old Netflix documentary. There have been some amazing documentaries on there that I’ve watched recently. So, I thought I’d share my favourite ones from this some with you lot.

Brave Miss World

This was such a heartbreaking documentary to watch but I couldn’t recommend it anymore. I hadn’t read too much about the documentary or the topic beforehand. So, I wasn’t really sure what I was to expect. View Full Post
