Getting ready for Uni featuring Old English Company

Hey guys,

For anyone who may have read my last post, you’ll be aware of a few updates going on in my life at the moment. Now, one of the areas i touched on was applying for university and filling in application forms. I can happily say i am down to my final two choices!! I am deciding between London Southbank University and University of Westminster. For anyone who may have attended either of the two, i’d love to hear your thoughts…perhaps you can give me a little insight of your experience there?

Anyways, in readiness for my Uni venture I’ve decided to put some preparations into place.

Accommodation 

I wanted to address my living situation first. I guess for a lot of students gearing up for uni…the whole ‘shared accommodation thing’ serves as the ultimate experience for Uni life. Straight up, I WON’T be doing that! Guys, i’m 24 and really not about that life. If i’m looking to move out from home, it will be into my own space haha! Nothing personal, i’d just prefer to have my own place where i can come home to every day and relax (#Bliss) It’s not as if i’m anti-social, i just think i’m passed that stage (and ok, maybe a little anti-social lol)

I’m so excited that I’ve already put together my ultimate Pinterest board with studio apartment ideas. Initially i was hoping to rent a one bedroom apartment, but realistically i think its wiser to go for the cheaper option of a studio as i’ll need to be mindful of budgeting. Eeek, please divert your attention to the lush imagery below:

Just think Sarah Jessica Parker meets New York City vibes! I’m loving: Pink, white and grey along with Zig-zag prints for decor! Ultimately i’d love to have a girly pad with simplistic chic decor.

Old English Company

Embracing Change

Hi all,

Gosh, has it really been 3 months since my last blog post?!

I’m not going to lie, i would say that the last 3 months have been pretty full on in terms of changes/decision making. The three main areas which have been impacted the most in my life are: work, education and family. So let me get started on giving you an in look into my hectic life recently…

Work

I’m not sure if i have ever mentioned my work history on my blog before, but for those of you who may not be aware, i do temping to earn money. Since leaving school back in 2012 (6 years ago…trust me i haven’t got a clue where the time has gone!) I’ve had quite a few roles under my belt. This has been great in terms of gaining experience in various office environments and meeting lots of people along the way. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve been offered a few permanent roles during this time, but i can honestly say that the longest i have stayed in a job role is a year. To put in bluntly, a role has never quite captivated me enough to want to settle down and be like ‘Yeah, i could see myself working here for the next few years…’ I have taken on permanent work thinking OK, maybe its going to happen, but the reality is there has always been something missing for me…PASSION. Which leads me onto my next point…

Education

When you’re a fresh school leaver, you and all of your friends are suppose to be planning the best summer before embarking on your separate ways and heading off to Uni right? Wrong. Unlike most of my friends, i made the decision to bypass uni and head straight into work life. I suppose when i was 17 years old, i was eager to get out of the classroom and into earning money. A pretty standard way of thinking for a young person to be fair. At the time, i knew that i wanted a role within the media industry i just didn’t realise how difficult it would be to get one!

Anyways fast forward a few years of finding myself, gaining work experience and all that jazz, i have finally come to a point of realisation. I’d quite like to give University a try. Scary, i know! Its taken me a while to gain the confidence in taking control of the direction i’d like my life to head in. Being 24, I’ve had major doubt questioning whether its too late, or if i’m silly for wanting to take on the stress (Essays, dissertations…oh gosh). But, I’ve received a lot of support from friends and family members encouraging me with this decision- and i am honestly grateful for this. The sheer fact in knowing that this next phase of my life is being taken to better myself and future makes me really happy.

The subject i have chosen to study is marketing, and i couldn’t be happier with this decision. When filling out my Ucas applications the first time round (back in 2012), i put media…but its amazing how taking the time to find myself these past 6 years has helped me zone in on my real areas of interest. Marketing is such a diverse field to get into and i believe that my love for blogging/ YouTube has stemmed from this.  And guess what… I’ve already received two conditional offers! All of my uni choices are located in London (trust me, the temptation to get the heck out of London recently has been all to real !) I’m also hoping to move out during this period with the help of a maintenance loan/temping on the side. By the end of my 3 years at Uni, i hope to have gained the right tools in order to confidently shape my career…it would be great to step into a marketing executive/brand co-coordinator role. Not too bad of a plan aye?

Family

Family life has been a little hectic lately as unfortunately, my Nan passed away Saturday 12th May. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, especially if its someone who has made such an impact in your life.

In all honesty, it will take a while to come to grips with the fact that she is no longer with us, however its important to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. At the end of the day, its about keeping the persons memory alive and focusing on the legacy which they have left behind. I know that during this difficult time, it’s hard to see the positive. But if i can encourage anyone who might be going through a similar situation, you need to remember to stay strong. Be a strong source for your family and most importantly for yourself. Know that it’s OK to have moments of sadness and allow yourself to grieve. Having an amazing support system is always helpful and i’d like to thank everyone who has reached out and offered there wishes. There will always be a void now that my Nan has gone, but i find comfort in the fact of knowing that she is no longer in pain, no longer suffering and finally at peace. Heaven has gained another angel and i know she will be watching over me and my family. Rest in beautiful peace Nanny xxx

Thanks so much for reading this post, it’s been a while and an update was long over due. If there are any areas which you would like me to expand on, feel free to drop me a comment or just some general feedback would be much appreciated! I’d be more than happy to discuss my experience of the world of temping, sending off Uni applications as an independent or even dealing with the loss of a loved one. My Uni course is due to start in September which means that in addition to temping, i should have a bit of free time to get back into blogging. I’m thinking of also doing an update video over on my YouTube channel (which is in desperate need of a bit of TLC) so be sure to keep an eye on that! Once again, thanks for reading…Happy blogging!

Travel diaries: Trip to Cyprus

Hello everyone and Happy new year,

I know we are rapidly approaching the end of January (where is this month going please?!) but as it’s my first post of the year i had to hit you guys up with a New year greeting! I hope everyone had an amazing festive period and has started the year feeling refreshed and full of optimism. I know i am, have you seen my latest YouTube video ‘20 Goals for 2018‘? (shameless plug). Well if you haven’t already, be sure to check out what goals i have set in place for myself this year- i think they are quite relate-able.

Anyways, in true ‘New Year, New me’ spirit (i joke) I’ve decided to start 2018 with a bang! Touching on one of my fave goals set, me and Stef took the leap and booked ourselves a trip to Cyprus! Now, you may notice an increase in travel blogs/vlogs over on my platforms (no apologies) This is due to the simple fact that i’m at the stage in my life where i simply want to travel! I want to have new experiences and embrace amazing cultures…i know i share this dream with many of you out there, so i’m taking the bull by its horns (i think that’s the phrase, tbh i’m really not sure! lol) and going for it! Starting with small trips around Europe and constant saving, i’m ready to go on these crazy adventures. And that’s a little update on me- without further ado, lets get onto Cyprus!

 

I absolutely loved Cyprus! From the sunset walks across the harbor to the late night dining at the bay, Paphos was an unforgettable experience. Although we went during the countries quiet period, we were never left short of activities! One of the highlights of the trip would have to be our trip to Paphos Zoo! As common as this might sound, it was just nice to have a chilled day which revolved around zoning out!

IMG_7828

Wouldn’t want to get into one with this guy!

I would have loved more time to truly embrace the countries remarkable culture, but lazy days and beach side chilling was the perfect way to embrace the Cypriot way of living- siesta style!

IMG_7746

I would love to visit Cyprus again, possibly during the summer period when the town is alive and booming. But i’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to tick another country off of my list! With more sites, and beautiful cities out there, the world is my oyster (…and yours!) Here’s to more adventures and a whole lot of exploring!!

IMG_7795

I can’t wait for the next adventure!

Did you know I’m on YouTube?!! Be sure to check out my Cyprus Travel Vlog over on my YouTube channel. Be sure to hit subscribe for frequent vids from me x 

Blogger shoot: Spreading Festive cheer

Hi guys,

It’s been ages since I’ve blogged and i’ve got to say – oh how ive missed posting!

To get myself back onto the blogging bandwagon, I thought i’d share some amazing pictures captured from mine and Lily’s very first blogger shoot on Saturday 9th December. We disturbed the streets of London( Kensington/Sloane square to be exact) in a bid to capture the perfect shot! Initially, we planned to go with an Autumn/Winter theme but looking over these pictures i think its safe to say we achieved both a winter and festive Christmas theme combined!

I’m not sure why its taken me so long to go ahead and do a  bloggers shoot, we all know i love photography (link to portfolio) but i guess there’s a first time for everything! With growth comes a taste for more adventure… and i think i’ve fallen inlove with my camera all over again. So what does this mean? …Well lets just say i’m ready to commit to the ‘Events’ side of my Lifestyle and Events blogger title so expect to see more funfilled, vibrant content!!

…And now for the pretty visuals!!!

This first set of photos were taken on a cute cobblestoned road in Kensington, near Kynans Mews.

The second set of photo’s were taken on the sleek streets of Kensington. I love how bright this area is, the crisp white radiates and elegant vibe!

IMG_7540IMG_7541IMG_7512IMG_7518IMG_7513

The last set of photo’s were captured right in the heart of Sloane Square. The area had such a festive vibe and i’m so happy we got to capture this within our photo’s!

The count down is officially on until the Christmas holidays!!  I cannot wait to spend time with my family and friends, not to mention cheesy christmas movies and lounging cosily in my onsie!! Have a lovely Christmas /New Year everyone- and a well deserved break.

Special shout out to my friend Lily May for capturing the pics featured in this blog. She also has a blog page and has some great Beauty/Fashion and Lifestyle posts…check her out guys: iamlilymay.com

How to: Achieve The Perfect Cake Stand

 

 

I recently attended this years Cake and Bake show with Great Cakiness and thought it would be great to put together a ‘How to’ guide for any cake brands out there prepping for an upcoming showcase/exhibition.

Having witnessed the hard work that goes into creating the perfect cake stand from previous events, I thought it would be great to give tips based on both an exhibitor/attendee’s point of view.

Time management – Make a plan

Plan, plan, plan. I cannot stress to you how important it is to make sure that you have thoroughly planned out movements. Whether its assigning time for baking prep or forming the actual design of your stand…planning really is key! Consider the key points below BEFORE you go into taking on the showcasing world.

  • Diary/Calendar– Do you have one? Use It. I find that an attractive diary/calendar tends to draw me to actually using one. If plain black diaries aren’t your thing, have a look at Primark’s selection of snazzy designs. Quite affordable and the perfect way to keep your schedule in check! Wall calendars are a good way of being constantly reminded of your duties also…please invest!
  • Quantity/stock take- This one’s really important! In order for your stand to go down as a success you’ve got to ensure that you have enough resources. This goes for: product, equipment, manpower…the list is endless! Ensure to carry out a check of what resources you have available in order to maximise your time. At the end of the day, no one wants to feel run down to the ground as a result of spreading yourself to thin! Rest up, rest assured and consider the next point…
  • Demand (popular products) If you’ve taken part in previous ideas, it’s handy to take note of some of your best sellers. Consider what your most popular products were and how likely this may be requested. Popularity sells, the more in demand the more profitable! Think smart, it’s all about supply and demand!

 

  • Visuals


  • Pinterest/Instagram –  You can find inspiration in just about anything, but for online visuals i find Pinterest and Instagram are my top favourites. It’s so simple, have a vision or theme in mind, run a search and before you know it…you’ll be creating boards left, right and centre! The main thing to keep in mind are any similarities/trends you may notice in the images you are selecting…
  • Colours/decorations…E.g: Colours, trends, styles, objects. Do you find yourself leaning towards vintage inspiration or perhaps modern is more your style? Really focus on this, after all- its the visuals that will most likely attract customers to your stand. Once you’ve drawn them in, you can boast about that amazing ‘new recipe’ or ‘new flavour’ you’ve just added to your produce. That will have them talking!

Décor


  • Objects – Now that you have a theme in mind, its time to start thinking about where your going to source these props/objects. I find: eBay and Amazon is a great place to start your online search. I also find with a lot of high street brands, it doesn’t hurt to check out their home ware range to see what they have to offer. 9/10 a lot of the decor can be used as props…if strategically placed you could have a vintage/chic stand courtesy of H&M, Primark, Tk Maxx…the list is endless. Don’t shy away from seeing what value you can get for your money, Pound shops are great for having great finds at a cheap price. Be sure to check out their home ware isle when next out on a shopping trip…you might be surprised. Charity shops are also a great source when on the hunt for vintage inspired pieces, at an affordable price. Why not pop into your local charity shop and see what they have to offer!

 

  • Layout – Now, this step is key! At this point we are now combining all of the planning, the hard research, killer nights baking away, strategic buying…it’s all come down to this moment… The Layout. You’ve got to ask yourself this vital question, ‘How am i going to achieve a stand that shows off my brand, what it’s got to offer and all whilst still being fabulous?  Well, remember that vision you had, now is the time to carry it out. Start by maximising what space you have available. For the larger designs, such as Wedding/Novelty cakes, think about how you can really show off these designs to put them in the spotlight. Got a spotlight creation that you’d like to show off? Think about laying out props in a way to maximise and draw attention to your cake designs. Think about visuals and what decor will really tie in with your theme. Using props can maximise attention drawn to your cakes and boost attraction overall!

Promote your brand

There are various ways in which you can promote your brand when it comes to events:

  • Uniform – Dressing your staff in uniform can be a great way to encourage brand recognition. A visible logo and colours associated with your brand gives clear guidance on your products and helps customers know where they can find assistance.
  • Business Cards/Brochures/Packages – Are a great source for providing useful information to your customers. Be sure to have loads of material for potential clients to take away with them. Great for referring to when they are leaving.

The Bloggers Festival

On the 23rd of September, me and my friend Evelynne were fortunate enough to attend the Bloggers Festival held at the Conrad London hotel in the St James area, a five star hotel! The event was put together by none other than the beautiful Scarlett London ( http://scarlettlondon.com/ ) – who has many fantastic events under her belt! As I’ve had the opportunity to attend one of Scarelett’s events in the past (The Blogger’s Ball) I knew that me and Evelynne were in for a treat!


And my oh my were we impressed ! As soon as we stepped foot in the venue, we were greeted upon arrival by the door man and escorted up the most lavish spiralling staircase I’ve ever seen! Talk about a great first impression, and the positive vibes didn’t stop there! Upon reaching the top floor, the scenery was decked out with the cutest pastel themed balloon back drop, welcome drinks and stylish bloggers eager to get networking #Bliss


I’ve got to give it up to some of you amazing bloggers, you slay the fashion world with your stylish outfits and have the most vibrant personalities! I’m hoping that the more events I can get to attend, the better I’ll become at meeting some more of you and forming great friendships #Bloggerpals

Once we got past the welcome stage, we entered the most lavish of sceneries. An extravagant dining table took centre stage, containing various props strategically placed…this created an elegant dining experience also channelling autumn vibes! Props such as fine china, styled to create beautiful flat lays. There were so many photo opportunities and lush angles, I hope you can get a real sense of how beautiful the table arrangements were.


Can’t forget to mention the yummy treats which were available at the event. You either had the option of going into a mad sugar rush from the sweets or enter tipsy mode from the alcoholic flavoured ice polls. I’ll just say that again shall I? Alcoholic ice polls?! Yes!! Prosecco, champagne to name just a few of the flavours which were available and as you  can imagine I had to test out both. They pass!


Lets move on to the amazing brands that were showcasing at the event shall we? (Check out Scarlett’s site for a full list of brands who were showcasing at the event: http://scarlettlondon.com/) We got speaking to beauty brands, skin care advisors, makeup guru’s, clothing brands- you name it!! Honestly its every bloggers dream (well, I know its mine) to be surrounded by lush products with live demos and of course…GOODIE BAGS.


We were even graced with a glimpse of Scarlett’s very on fashion line (name of line) Just look at the beautiful array of these pieces, stunning. I’m in love with the pastel hues and glamourous vibes she has incorporated into her line. Can’t wait to make a cheeky purchase! #Killingthegame


So we grabbed like one, or two…or maybe a few more (you know we went IN!) There’s no question that we were definitely spoilt on the day! The amount of effort these brands put in, not only with their interaction- but also the high end products stocked inside the goodie bags…speechless. If you didn’t get to attend the bloggers festival you most certainly missed out! I’m not even going to down play how happy I felt exiting the festival (with ANOTHER goodie bag handed to us) We left with a sense of positivity and excitement for future networking opportunities, eagerly wishing to attend more amazing events. Speaking of which, I’m super excited to be attending the Olympia Beauty Event this coming weekend (1st – 2nd October ).

 


Thanks so much for reading and keeping up with my blog. I’m guilty for not posting very regularly but have got some great material planned for you guys which I can’t wait to share. Stay posted, and have a great weekend all!

Sick day Essentials

This post is brought to you from the warm comfort of my bed, under the covers…snuggled up just the way I like it! Let me paint you the scene…


It’s Monday morning, you’ve just had a lovely weekend and now you’re ready and rearing for the week ahead of you. The sky is grey, the clouds are out, you turn over to shut off your 6:30am alarm and as you get ready to rock out of bed…you realise…you’re not feeling too great. Scratch that, you feel DISGUSTING.

So as you’ve guessed it, I’m having a sick day today as I’m feeling terrible. But being the blogger that I am, I thought it would be much more practical to share with you some of my essentials for gearing up for a sick day. Way better than resting right? I’m not going to lie, it’s nice to be tucked up today- but I can’t wait to get out of this slump and back in the office and back to the grind. Here are my top Sick day Essentials: 

Stay warm – Its time to pull out your woollies and cosy up under a nice warm blanket. Aah there’s nothing better than being able to snuggle up, especially to the sound of rain…is that just me? Anyway whether you decide to stay in your bed or don a nice oversized jumper, be sure to keep warm. I love having a nice cuppa when i’m not feeling great and I especially love getting the chance to rock some fluffy socks, bliss!

Stay hydrated – Juice, juice and more juice. If you’re like me, you’ll want to keep topped up and hydrated. Depending on what mood you’re in, you may be craving sugar for energy levels and this is where juice or Lucozade comes in handy. However you might just want to indulge in hot drinks, tea and hot chocolate will be your best friend in this circumstance. Or if you really want to keep it neutral- water is the best option. Whatever the case, be sure to stay hydrated and do right by your body.

Stay Positive – When ill, I like to create a relaxed environment to really chill out and aid the recovery process. Here are the top 5 ways I achieve this:

  • Watching Vlogs
  • Watching movies/Netflixing it up!
  • Lighting candles
  • Catching up on blogs
  • Reading a good book
  • Listening to music


 

Whatever the case, make sure you have the best sick day (if possible) by following some of the tips above. And with that being said, I think i’ll go back under my covers and rest up. This girl’s got to be fighting fit for work tomorrow!

Travel diaries: Majorca Edition

Hey guys, 

I’ve decided to include an additional series to my blog titled ‘travel diaries’. Why? Because it’s high time this girl took life by the horns and started creating memories outside of South London! I’ve been to a few places, don’t get me wrong,  but I’m definetly at that stage in life now where I want to travel the world and embrace different cultures! 

So, to kick start my travel diaries I’m going to share my current experiences in sunny Majorca! We (me, mum and sister) are vacaying in Porto Cristo for 5 days and you bet I’ll be documenting the experience. Whether in Vlog or blog form I plan to capture Majorca’s beautiful scenery and share some of the amazing spots we venture to. Be sure to stay up to date with our Majorca adventure filled with Travel inspiration and sun themed pics #Travelgoals
