20 Things I want to do this year

I’ve been meaning to write this post for so long but I just kept getting distracted, I’m finally sitting down and getting it done! At the beginning of this year I decided that 2018 is going to be the year for me. Whilst January was a bit slow and I didn’t do much, I’m determinedContinue reading “20 Things I want to do this year”

Things don’t always go to plan

Tonight I was hoping to sit down and write a nice post all about the fun day out I’d had but my plans just fell completely apart. I woke up early, put on my new favourite play-suit and set off to Stratford-upon-Avon. I haven’t been there since I was in year 7 and me andContinue reading “Things don’t always go to plan”

Travel post: A week away in Dawlish

A few weeks ago I took a much needed trip to the seasidey town of Dawlish. I stayed there last year and absolutely loved it so was so happy to spend a whole week there again. The weather wasn’t brilliant every day but it was perfect for going on long walks and I still managedContinue reading “Travel post: A week away in Dawlish”

Sunny days, adventures and sheep

Sunny days are a perfect excuse to meet up with friends and create new memories, and that is just how I spent my Saturday last weekend. I met up with my friends and we journeyed off deep into the countryside, climbed up a huge hill and eventually reached Magpie Mine, an old disused mine. MagpieContinue reading “Sunny days, adventures and sheep”

An Autumn walk around Kedleston Hall

One of my favourite things to do in Autumn is to go on woodland walks. I haven’t done this in a while as I’ve been busy with uni life and work, but now that uni is over I have spare time in the day to do all the Autumn things I want. I’ve been inContinue reading “An Autumn walk around Kedleston Hall”

A day at Hassop Station – Things to do in Derbyshire

Despite the autumn season slowly starting, the weather has been soooo nice, so last week I ventured out into Derbyshire and spend the afternoon cycling at Hassop Station. I haven’t been on a bike ride in ages, but it was so nice to be out in the fresh air even if I did struggle toContinue reading “A day at Hassop Station – Things to do in Derbyshire”

My favourite reads from this summer

I went on a couple of holidays this summer, which for me meant a lot of time lying on a beach reading a lot of books. Here are some of my favourites. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes This book contains all the emotions. I was shocked at how easy I was sucked into it.Continue reading “My favourite reads from this summer”

The East Midlands Blogger Meet Up

Before starting my blog I never realised how many bloggers there were in the East Midlands, and I luckily got the chance to meet some of them at the East Midlands Blogger Meet Up. The event was held in Leicester, somewhere I’ve never been before, so I got the train from Derby with my friendContinue reading “The East Midlands Blogger Meet Up”

A weekend in Birmingham

Last weekend I headed up to Birmingham to celebrate my friends 21st birthday. We booked a room at Hatters Hostel which is just a 15 minute walk from the city centre. I’d never stayed at a hostel before and wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was nice and we had our own bathroom (IContinue reading “A weekend in Birmingham”

A week away in Centre Parcs

I recently went away again and spent the week in Centre Parcs with some friends I went to school with. I had never really been properly before so wasn’t quite sure what to expect. This was the view from our lodge: It’s a big place with lots of activities, beautiful lodges and lots of woodlandContinue reading “A week away in Centre Parcs”

Derby is full of such random places – The Great Northern Railway Warehouse

My last post on here was about an old headmasters house I went to look at for part of my university coursework and this post is similar. I’m currently based in Derby so thought I would try and look for some old buildings I could photograph. I noticed a factory near the big roundabout thatContinue reading “Derby is full of such random places – The Great Northern Railway Warehouse”

I got to visit the incredible DISMALAND by Banksy

Today, I was lucky enough to visit Dismaland and it was amazing! Banksy and so many artists have have worked so hard in order to produce something that people will pay to see and is also an eye opening and life shocking experience. It really does highlight and shock people into seeing the real lifeContinue reading “I got to visit the incredible DISMALAND by Banksy”
