Concrete jungle...

Ever since I can remember my dad and I planned to celebrate my 21st in the big apple...
He kept his promise, and I couldn't have been more grateful, or received a better gift for my birthday.

Celebrations in Couch.

After such a busy weekend full of amazing food and flowing alcohol, I wanted to spend my actual birthday in a more relaxing way.
But I still wanted good food...
Who doesn't, right?

So I decided that instead of just relaxing on the couch, I would head over to Couch and have my meal cooked for me...

Once we arrived and told the lovely waitress what we were all going to fill our stomachs with, my housemates (to my surprise) emptied their bags with cards and presents, all addressed to me...

Food, more food and the Police...

Well October has officially been my birthday month, and it has been a hectic, but amazing one...

I have finally turned 21 and I have to begin this post by saying thank you to my amazing friends and family, who have certainly made it one to remember.

The celebrations began with the flow of cocktails, in Manchester, at an amazing restaurant called Saporro.

I recently went to my first blogger meet up, and  have to admit, I was so nervous!

Tea for three.

In keeping with the tradition of being late with posts, that I appear to be setting myself; me and Lauren were feeling extremely apprehensive about receiving our results this summer.
So we decided to have a girly treat day and go for afternoon tea.

This post is long overdue...

Student Box Swap.

Well I am about to enter my third and final year at University.
It has made me remember how scared I was on my first day and how having Lauren from Lauren's Little Blog there really helped me settle in.

"Where to, miss?" "To the stars..."

I have to admit, I have had an obsession with the Titanic ever since I was little.

Tandragee Fort.

After a fun filled night in Omagh the next day we needed to head to Derry to meet back up with my boyfriends parents and head back to that little sun catching square I told you about...

Preparation and protection...

Today my boyfriend's brother and his girlfriend were flying out to join us. So we decided to not travel too far away and head to Derry for a spot of sightseeing...

Dipping our toes in the ocean at Culdaff beach.

Sun, sea, sand (and a cheeky couple of glasses of wine), what more could a girl ask for?

That's notonthehighstreet is it?

Well I think I had better begin this post with an apology...

Dave's Very Berry Messy Pudding.

This dessert is amazing!
Especially if you are a student on a budget or don't want to spend a fortune satisfying your sweet tooth. Well this will certainly satisfy it...

Mother's Day: Part Two.

There is nothing like waking up in your own bed.
I have to admit though, I am lucky with the bed I have at university, as it is actually comfy, but nothing can even compare to my own bed at home and waking up hearing my little sister laughing and playing downstairs was such a great sound to wake up to. 
I hadn't seen her in a very long time, as every time I seem to come home she is at a sleepover or is doing something more fun so I was so excited to see her again, and I think the feeling was mutual!

Mother's Day: Part One.

I love my mum, and if you have read my previous post; Mother's Day Gift Guide, you will probably know I think the world of her and I was so excited to spend a weekend celebrating the fact that she is my mum!

The POREfessional Review.

When I started wearing makeup I had no idea what primer was (this was a long time ago, don't worry), so when I finally discovered it I instantly fell in love. 
Since then I have been using all sorts of different primers from a variety of makes at a range of prices but I have never found one that has rekindled that original love... until now.

Spontaneity and two C's

After spending nearly a week in bed, feeling very sorry for myself (as I was very poorly), I decided to spend my Friday night burying myself in my duvet and cuddling into my boyfriend watching films. That was exactly what I did and I loved it.

Mother's Day Gift Guide.

1. Cleanse and Polish, 2. Flowers, 3. Jo Malone, 4. Beach Hut Mug, 5. Cava
I don't know about you, but for me Mothering Sunday can be a bit of a nightmare. 
Don't get me wrong, I love my mum, and I agree that she deserves a treat and a thank you for all the hard work she puts in, but for me, picking the perfect present that represents that is extremely hard work.

Date Night.

I love being in a relationship, but sometimes I just wantNEED a night with my girls.
Last night was one of them times...

Urban Decay eyeshadow/liner review.

I see so many reviews on Urban Decay's naked palette's that when I got some of their other products for Christmas I couldn't wait to test them out and finally see for myself what all the fuss was about.

February Favourites.

Well time appears to have flown by! I cannot believe it is the 12th March already!
So it is fair to say that this post is a little late, but I am doing it anyway...

There's no place like home.

As I have said before, and I will probably say many times again, I love living in the city. But the luxury of a weekend at home is something that I sometimes crave. 
With the mixture of birthdays and the arrival of a new baby into the family, I have honestly been desperate to get my feet on home soil.

Pancake Day.

I love pancake day!!
Ever since I was little pancake day has always been one of my favourites. I think I just loved that all my family was in the kitchen marking my dad's flipping skills out of ten, and me and my brother having competitions on how many we could eat in one sitting.

Time to help.

One of my closest friends at uni has decided that she is sick of having her hair long. Summer is approaching us (and if you ask me it needs to hurry up) and in an effort to stay nice and cool she decided it was time for her long hair to go.
Then it dawned on her... if she is having so much of her hair cut off, (her hair stops about half way down her back and she is cutting it to shoulder length) why not do it for charity?

The Big Jig and a cup of tea...

Well if I am honest my weekend started perfectly, I can imagine you all reading this expecting me to say that I did something really exciting, but if I'm honest I didn't (sorry to disappoint). I spent my Friday night cuddled into my man watching a film and drinking a glass of wine, and it was bliss.

Something so small can mean so much.

I love being at University. I love living in a city and being a part of so many different activities and opportunities. It is so different from my home town in the countryside, where as I was growing up I had to rely on my dad to get me anywhere or be able to do anything.

Dinner Party.

At University I have found that it can be really easy to lose touch with friends along the way. People who were once a constant in your life can suddenly no longer be there anymore and you find yourself texting them, or receiving texts like 'hey, i've not seen you in months!'

To-do List.

When New Year's Eve was just around the corner (this was a while ago, I know), I began trying to think of a New Year's resolution that I would actually stick to. I didn't want the typical "I want to lose weight", or "I'm going to give up eating chocolate" resolution that I knew I would stick to for two weeks (maybe even a week) tops. So instead, I decided to create a to-do list of all the things I wanted to accomplish before 2015.

Valentines Date

As some of you may know, being a student at University has its difficulties, especially regarding money, so when valentines day came around me and the man decided to do it on a budget, whilst still treating ourselves.
