A Romantic Weekend away in Venice...

9 Nov 2018

Hello everyone,

As you may have seen by my Insta photos, Sam took me on a weekend away to Venice for my 21st Birthday. It was honestly one of the most magical experiences of my life and I was so happy to have finally visited Italy. We flew from Bristol airport on Friday 26th and stayed until Monday morning, where we got an early morning flight back to the UK. We also stayed in a little apartment that was just a 15-20 minute walk away from Piazza San Marco.

On Friday we flew from Bristol at around 3pm and landed in Italy at 6pm, we then unpacked, got ready and went straight for dinner. We went to this beautiful restaurant on the canal and ate pasta and had the most amazing view of Ponte Di Rialto, the oldest bridge in Venice. We also saw all of the gondolas going by on the canal and it was just so surreal. We took a little stroll around however Venice is a little hard to navigate in the dark.

On Saturday we took a walk again past Ponte Di Rialto and took a look in some of the shops. And I finally went into Sephora for the first time yay and brought a few goodies too. We also went into this amazing Department store and it was amazing to look around everything. We stopped off for some coffee and we had some yummy food through out the day and visited Piazza San Marco, which was honestly beautiful. Then in the evening we got ready and went out for dinner. We didn't have the best experience in the restaurant but I'm not going to dwell as I have literally told the story about 1398498 times. But other than that we had a great day.

On Sunday we decided that we wanted to take a look around some local museums. We visited the Peggy Guggenheim Museum which was amazing to walk round. We then sat down for a little while and looked in the gift shop too. It had began to rain quite a lot on Sunday so we did have to buy these plastic covers for our shoes because the canals were flooding into the streets and the shops. You may have seen in the news the awful flooding and storms in Venice, so we were so lucky to have come home when we did. We also tried some cannoli, which is like a pastry filled with cream and they were so so yummy. And in the evening we went out for pizza and had some ice cream to finish off what had been an incredible weekend. 

Thankyou so much for reading I really hope you enjoyed!!

My 21st Birthday ...

1 Nov 2018

Hello everyone,

Once again it has been a pretty long old time since my last blog post, but October so far has been such a crazy/ busy month. If you know me or follow me on Insta, you would know that it was my birthday on the 17th October, and I had the best time ever. I am so so so grateful to all of my family and friends for making my birthday so amazing, they are truly the best I could ever ask for. I also wanted to say thank you so much to anyone who wished me a happy birthday, its was so lovely to receive them..

I thought it would be lovely to share on my blog all the photos that I had taken from my birthday, kind of like a little memory board so I can look back on the photos and amazing memories. I also made a little montage for my YouTube channel if you would like to give it a watch, click here.  

If you hadn't noticed, I think my family may have got the memo about the unicorn theme, my cake was made by the amazing Elizabeth Stirling and it was honestly the most beautiful cake I have ever seen! On the Monday before my birthday my sister took me for an early birthday dinner at The Fire Station, which is one of my favourite restaurants, and was so so good! I also went to have a birthday pamper and have my nails done in the most beautiful nail salon. Myself, Mum, Sam and his parents all went and had the tastiest breakfast at The Find.

On the Friday after my birthday I went out for Thai food with my friends at the Giggling Squid and then out into town. And of course the best way to spend a birthday is by spreading it out across the whole week, on Saturday my family treated me to an after noon tea at The Malmaison which was amazing. On Sunday my lovely friend Sarah also took me out for afternoon tea, which was lovely and we had some amazing food!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say the biggest THANKYOU, to absolutely everyone who made my 21st birthday so so special. I honestly never thought any birthday could be so amazing! I truly am so lucky to have such thoughtful family and friends.

There will also be an upcoming travel post, as Sam took me to Venice. I honestly could not believe it and we had the most incredible time. If you ever have the chance to visit Venice I  would reccomened because it was a breath taking experience. My Grampy Italian and lived in Italy which made the experience so much more special to me! So please do look out for that post, I have some beautiul photos to share...

I really hope you enjoyed this post and I shall see you in my next one...
