SALES HAUL

Good evening beautiful souls,

I finally had the chance to look around some shops the other day and allowed myself to pick up some treats with my Christmas money. The best thing was I managed to get one or two things which I’d been eyeing up for a while but that were now on sale; one being a ring from Accessorize and the other a backpack from New Look. The best thing was that New Look had another 20% off sales items too so I got some really good bargains!

Here’s what I got:

New Look Backpack £7.20

New Look Jumpsuit £8

Accessorize sunglasses £4.20

Accessorize Ring £5.70

New Look Boots £11.20

New Look Bralette £3.20

Hope you all managed to grab yourself some sales bargains too!

MY FAVOURITE YOUTUBE CHANNELS

Good morning guys,

Hope you’re all having a nice day so far! I may be stuck at work until 5pm today, but the sun is shining so it doesn’t seems so bad. At the moment the cafe is quiet so with the music softly playing in the background and nothing to do I thought I’d write a quick post sharing some of my favourite YouTuber’s with you.

I only really started getting hooked on YouTube about 2/3 years ago when one of my flatmates from uni told me about some of the YouTuber’s she followed and showed me some of their videos. It was then I realised I enjoyed watching vlogs, learning more about beauty and watching peoples latest fashion hauls. I became hookedand have since discovered the Youtuber’s who inspire me, make me laugh or who I can relate to. So for today’s post I just wanted to let you know who my all-time faves are (the YouTuber’s where I won’t miss a video) as well as some of the others I watch on a regular basis too.

Helen Anderson

I absolutely love watching Helen’s videos, especially her vlogs. I love her style and she is such a laugh. Her vlogs are very honest, really showing her everyday life with all its ups and downs including her squabbles with husband Matthew which just makes her even more relatable. She includes a whole mix of things from beauty, fashion, DIY, homeware, music… I just think she’s fab!

Zoe Sugg

Zoe I love best for her vlogs and favourites videos I think. She is just the cutest. Zoe has such a smiley personality and is always up for a laugh which is infectious. Also although she’s about ten sizes smaller than me aha I enjoy watching her fashion hauls as she always has fab outfits. She’s just an overall good bean!

The SacconeJoly’s

The SacconeJoly’s are a family of five, Jonathan and Anna, their kids Emilia, Eduardo and Alessia as well as their six Maltese dogs. They upload a vlog every day and I love watching them. The kids just put a smile on my face with their everyday shenanigans.

Kate Flowers

I am so glad I found Kates channel last year! She is such a natural beauty and sweetheart; I quickly became hooked to her vegan lifestyle videos; what I eat in a day’s and other vlogs sharing her passion for health, veganism, dancing and LGBT.

Kalyn Nicholson

I have been following Kalyn for a while, but have only recently started watching her vlogs more religiously. She has such a chatty friendly personality and her content is great; a real variety from books to makeup looks.

Other YouTube channels I like:

Tanya Burr, Raw Alignment, Mae FlowersJenny Mustard, Inthefrow, Ryan and Aiden, Zoe London, Carly Rowena

Well those are my favourite YouTuber’s. Who are yours? I’d love discovering new channels so please do let me know!

FESTIVAL BLUES

Good morning beautiful souls,

This past weekend I was dancing away on a field with views of the sea at the Lindisfarne Festival. It’s only Wednesday today and I’m already feeling those festival blues! I had such a great time and wanted to share my experience of this beautiful little festival with you.

After seeing the forecast predict rain on our arrival, we were so happy it was wrong and we could pitch our tent in dry grass whilst watching a beautiful sunset.

After a relaxed breakfast we joined in on the friday morning yoga session and gave our limbs a good wake-up.

Post yoga it was time to get our festival faces on, gems and glitter at the ready!

We spent the afternoon exploring, listening to various artists, soaking up the sun and sipping on rose lemonade gins (one of my all-time favourite gin drinks). There were some cute stalls and I treated myself to a really beautiful 3 tiered dreamcatcher in coarse multicoloured thread! Best purchase ever!

When we came back for dinner we found someone had annoyingly planted their tent right in front of our entrance making space for their giant gazebo and tents, but completely stealing our outdoor space! We mumbled and grumbled, then once out of our system we cooked some yummy stirfry for dinner and watched another stunning sunset.

We only had two specific acts we wanted to see that night, Bryde and The View. Bryde was amazing! She has a beautiful voice and I loved her song. We said hi afterwards and I bought her two EP’s, I love supporting smaller artists!

Next we wandered over to end the night with The View. The tent was a lot more packed for this gig, but I enjoyed it, although Bryde was definitely my highlight artist all weekend!

On Saturday morning we were awake early and after a healthy breakfast decided to make the most of another gorgeous day and popped over onto holy island for a quick walk before the tide closed.

Once back at the festival we made lunch, popped open a bottle of prosecco, snacked on olives and poppadoms and threw the dice around trying to beat each other at Yatzi, it was a perfect afternoon.

Lunch was followed by more wandering around the festival, listening to some spoken word and stand up comedy, having a sway to country music and again soaking up more of that beautiful sunshine that stayed with us all weekend!

When the sun began it’s decent we decided to eat out that evening and treated ourselves to a yummy burger with fries. Afterwards we bumped into a friend of mine who I used to work with on holy island and we invitedher and her friend back to our tent for some more drinks. Once it was dark we headed back to the arena and had a good dance in a haybale circle that was firing out some beats!

It was the final night so the headliners were The Fratellis and we even got a great place half way through their set, although it did mean getting pushed and kicked about once Chelsea Dagger came on and a mosh pit almost started aha.

After the last gig we stayed warm by the fire for a while before heading to bed at around 12.30 again – aha yes I know we’re old grannies!

Well, that’s a wrap! Lindisfarne festival was amazing! I can’t wait to see what next year’s festival brings!!!
