Debate, Heat Wave and a Busy Day!

Image
With debate prep galore, the heatwave provided a welcome excuse to head into town before concentrating on the debate. After the celebrations, I had the flat to myself and had a busy day organising my life!

Being a tea captain for a debate assessment was a heck of a lot more work than I had orgininally anticipated but after chasing a few people up, I finally felt like it was all going to come together. I spend a couple of days putting it all together and then Sam and I headed out to celebrate finishing writing it in town. We both went to the opticians and she got the cutest glasses. I actually really enjoyed it and thought Specsavers were brilliant. For lunch, we went to my favourite restaurant of TGI Friday's before strolling through the town centre. It was crazy busy and there were so many people in the water feature in front of square. It was crazy! I was still so stuffed from lunch but Sam grabbed a quick ice cream on the way back.

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance (Review)

Image
In celebration of the epic Royal wedding tomorrow - the highlight of the year for many - Lifetime released a beautiful film based on the true story of Harry and Meghan. I love the royal family and I love cheesy romantic films so of course I watched it! 
The 
It's not just romantic though. It's got everything from dramatically accurate portrays of real life moments to light-hearted joking...cue to ginger jokes and Harry Potter metaphors. To top it off, I found it incredibly refreshing how the film focused on the racist remarks and didn't shy away or try to hide the sinister realness associated with Meghan's childhood, as well as her welcoming into the royal family.

I feel like the relationship has been kept out of the public eye incredibly well, all things considering. What I loved about the film is that it filled in the blanks in a way that's somewhat imaginable and based on fact from interviews and admissions. I loved that they used factually correct information …

New Girl - Finale Season! (Review)

Image
With a short 8 episode finale season, I am sad but content with how New Girl finished. 
The comedy show popped onto our screens 8 years ago starring awkward and upbeat Jess, who after going through a rough breakup, moves in with three single guys. Intelligent and witty Nick is an underachiever who bar tends. Schmidt obsesses over his social profile and works a professional job. Winston is a competitive former athlete who, after realising he will never become a pro, moves into the loft. Together with Jess' best friend, Cece, they bond to form an unlikely, and dysfunctional, family. The final season fast forwards years, as it opens with Cece and Schmidt's daughters birthday. It's not only a reunion for the viewers but also for the characters as Jess and Nick have been gallivanting around the world on a book tour. Schmidt is without a doubt the stand out in this episode with the comedy centralised around his moustache.
The final tour episodes aired this week and it's bit…

The Script - Concert (Review)

Image
It's been a ridiculously long time since I wrote a concert review in detail and that's because I really haven't been going to anywhere as near as many as I used to. Crazily, the last concert before The Script was Capital's Summertime Ball last summer!  I was umming and ahhing as to whether to actually write a post on The Script but I've done every other concert so I said yes! The reason is because I totally forgot my camera that night so all the videos and pictures are from my phone. It's not the best quality but it's still a memory I want to remember and I'm happy I have them.

I was so excited to see The Script and with them being my favourite band of all time, I always love seeing them despite already seeing them live twice. I saw them at Nottingham Motorpoint Arena back in February so it was quite a while ago now but definitely a memorable night. It was actually my first time at the arena having only been…

New Series - Midwifery Talks!

Image
I am so excited to announce the launch of a new blog series that I will be posting in the next few months!

Over the years, I've started a few blogger series and I've always had amazing feedback. Since starting Midwifery I've already learnt so much and while I learnt more knowledge studying Medicine, what I do think I've learnt is more practical and useful information in the first few months of my new course.

I've been always been someone who is a massive fan of babies, and in fact many of my closest friends and families call me baby-obsessed. Honestly, it's refreshing to finally be associated and surrounded by like-minded people 24/7.
Nevertheless, despite my sister's amazement about my knowledge of newborns and children, I've learnt things I defintely had no clue about before and so I thought if I didn't know it, most people wouldn't either.

I think it will be interesting to have slightly more of the unusual or to talk about the topics that peo…

South Beach Pestana Hotel - Miami (Review)

Image
I've been wanting to write up some reviews from Miami for a while now but I haven't just around to doing it. I'm sure you all saw how much I absolutely loved my holiday and South Beach Pestana Hotel - Miami was the hotel I stayed in on the incredible, all expenses paid trip.

With so many activities (jet skiing, dolphin watching, speed boats, helicopters!) I could write an endless list of reviews but to start I'd thought I'd share what I thought of the hotel.

South Beach Pestana Hotel - Miami is not necessarily the 4* hotel I’m used the but nevertheless it is lovely.

The breakfast was good but basic. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that fruit was mixed rather than individually cut up. I think I'm used to all inclusive resorts so it was strange only having breakfast included in the package. The one downside of this is that the drink prices at the bar are an absolute rip off! We didn't even attempt the food...
When I go on holiday I love to swim. Th…

Bank Holiday Weekend!

Image
Happy Bank Holiday weekend everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the lovely, scorching hot weather.

Just a quick post today to let you know that there won't be a vlog this week, unless you know me personally because it's been made private! It's full of cute little moments with my niece and nephew and I fully respect my sister and her husband's decisions to keep their children off social media. That doesn't mean I don't want to remember all their precious moments though!
This past weekend has been absolutely beautiful and while I've been stuck inside all weekend preparing for my debate assessment for Friday, I have taken today off to celebrate the weather...and let's be honest...to somewhat appease my flatmate. Bless her. It's just been the two of us all weekend and she's absolutely hated that I've stayed in since Friday.

Nevertheless, here's to enjoying the sun and sharing it all with you next week!
