I was lucky enough to win a pair of tickets from Pistonheads to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which was last weekend. My Dad and little brother are really into motorsports (my brother does karting championships and wants to be an F1 driver when he’s older), so they were ecstatic when I told them I’d won tickets. We found out that because my brother is 12, he could get into the festival for free, so I got to go along too!
Hi! I haven’t posted in a few days because I moved out of my London student accommodation, stayed with my boyfriend for a few days, then we came back to Devon for the summer, so I’ve been really busy. I did manage to find the time to sort out my social media, including my Instagram, I started a Pinterest account (addicted already!), and set up a Facebook Page, which has a lonely single like on it so far!
ANYWAY… Read More
I came across a website through the “Internet is Beautiful” SubReddit called Blossom Type, and I just had to share it on here. As you can see from the image above, Blossom Type is a website where you can type messages in beautiful floral text and send it to someone, download it (I’m using mine as a wallpaper!), or share it online.
What makes it so special is that the letters have been handcrafted with flowers and then filmed, making a short movie of your message being created. I wish I could embed the video in this blog post, but alas, you’ll have to check it out yourself!
During the weekend before last, Topshop in Oxford Circus was transformed into a “Playland” with lots of games and free snacks. I was in Oxford Circus browsing the Motel Rocks sample sale (which was awesome, I’ll show you what I got tomorrow!), and I couldn’t resist a quick wander around Topshop to see what the Playland was all about.

I’m sure everyone and their mum has heard of Graze boxes; healthy snacks delivered in little boxes straight to your door, but did you know that they also do Breakfast Boxes?
My boyfriend and I decided to try Graze, because we got a coupon code for a free chocolate box (which was delicious), and then had a quick browse around the website for other boxes. I decided to try a one-off (no subscription) breakfast box because I like trying different types of cereal, and the 20 varieties they have looked so yum!
I received the box yesterday, and I am really happy with the 4 varieties of cereal that I got! I couldn’t resist the Banoffee porridge (I ate that this morning), and I can’t wait to try the Strawberries & Cream flavour. One of my friends said that the Rugged Maple & Pecan Granola is delicious, so I hope I’ll enjoy that too. Mango Lassi doesn’t look like something I’d enjoy, but I’m sure my boyfriend will eat that one!
This box was worth £3.99, but I got it for £2.99 because Graze do discounts and offers for their customers now and again. I also got sent a coupon code to give out to friends so that they can try a box for free: 2HNJRKX9. It’s a win-win because if you use the code, I also get a free box! If you already use Graze, you can also use the code to get an extra box for free if you buy a breakfast box.
Thanks for reading,
My new MacBook charger still hasn’t arrived, so I’m kind of improvising with blog posts until I can get back to what I had planned!
I didn’t have anything to do today, so I decided to spend an hour sorting through my Instagram. I deleted some really old pictures / ones I didn’t like, unfollowed some accounts and followed some new ones.
As I mentioned yesterday, my MacBook charger broke and I’m waiting for a new one to arrive, so I can’t transfer and edit any of my dslr photos for the blog posts I have planned. So I’m improvising today and decided to do the Netflix Tag, using some of the pics from my instagram edited with Pic Collage, a cool app I downloaded.
I’m writing this blog post on my phone because my MacBook charger has died (again). Thankfully I uploaded a few pics before that happened, not all of the ones I wanted to show you, but that’s just life I guess.
Everyone knows I’m a massive fan of Elvis Presley – I have tons of his music on cd/vinyl, dvds of concerts, my bedrooms at home and uni are both covered in posters of him, and I have a ridiculous amount of other Elvis merchandise. (I am a weirdo). So of course I had to go and see the ‘Elvis at the O2‘ exhibition on the day it opened in December and buy a return ticket so I could visit 6 times. Elvis at the O2 is an exhibition of Elvis Presley’s personal items including clothes, records, army uniform and even cars, his motorbike and pool table! It’s great for anyone in London / the UK who doesn’t have the opportunity to visit Graceland!
