I Don’t Know About You, But I’m Feelin’ 22!

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

Jokes, LOL. It was my birthday a month and a half ago, but there’s nothing like being a month and a half late to your own birthday blog party, right? RIGHT!

So, here’s a blog post about it – mainly because I’ve been in Australia for about 6 weeks now and I am feeling super nostalgic and I am missing my friends a lot. 

For the past two years, my birthdays were spent in London and Budapest, and I realised that I never had a proper Nottingham birthday. Nottingham has such a huge piece of my heart that I felt it was only right to travel back there for one phenomenal final weekend before I jetted off to Australia the next week.

Walking the Plank in Seminyak

Last week I posted about the insanely fun hen party thrown for my sister in Seminyak, the party centre of Bali. In that post, I told you to keep your eyes peeled for more Bali-licious posts coming your way, and well, here’s another one.

My big sis wasn’t the only bride-to-be on our luxurious week in the Balinese sun – which meant that the black and gold I was rocking for one night wasn’t the only fancy dress present. The fancy dress requirement was my absolute dream because if you don’t already know, I bloody love fancy dress. In the past I’ve rocked Belle, Captain America, Alice in Wonderland, and Gretchen Weiners, to name just a few, and I was pumped to discover the theme of this Hen’s day was sailor themed.

A Treat for Two | Hallmark Hotel & Spa

How many times have you and your gals spammed your squad chat with plans for a spa day? If you’re anything like me, it’s probs a lot, and if you’re a little bit more like me, you’ve probs never managed to actually get yourself on one.

Maybe it’s because going for a spa day sounds way indulgent, or because trying to organise your best gals to be free on the same day, at the same time, and find a place that offers a sick deal on facials and massages, sounds more like an impossible mission than whatever it is that Tom Cruise has been doing for the last four films. Whatever it is, I reached the ripe old age of 22 before I finally booked in for my first ever trip to the spa.

Happy Hens, with love from Bali XO

I’ve been living in Australia for a good couple of weeks now, and it’s been pretty damn sweet. The sun has been shining, I get to snuggle up to two adorable doggos every night, and it turns out that my sister is quite the accomplished chef.

But before I landed Down Under, I spent a glorious few days in the Just Above Down Under, also known as Bali. Wait, what do you mean Bali isn’t commonly known as the Just Above Down Under? Oh, whatever.

Home Sweet Home?

Okay, so, I’m home. I’ve actually been home for almost 7 weeks now, and I have to be honest and say that I’m not really enjoying it. Home, JSYK, is where I live in Hull with my mum and dad when I’m not living life to the max at university. And since I graduated almost 7 weeks ago, I’m kind of no longer living life to the max at university, yaknow?

I know I’m probably not the only person who’s ever gone home after uni has unceremoniously given you a ceremony and kicked you out, and I know I’m probably not the only one who’s struggled with the transition, but like, I’m really struggling with the transition.
