I am the biggest child when it comes to my birthday. It get so super super excited and, despite 19 not being the most exciting age, I'm just as excited to celebrate my birthday this year! Family birthday tea is one of my favourite things ever and it will be lovely to be at homeMy best friend, Charlie, is coming down from Southampton to visit and I miss her like crazy and can't wait to catch up on everything (like our regular hour long phone calls aren't enough...) Due to it being assessment week (mine is on monday... eeek!) I have no lessons on my birthday! Celebrating in brighton will be so much fun and I will be documenting the whole day on here in a very photo heavy post. I might even use the big girl camera....

what's your favourite thing about birthdays?!

Fireworks Night!


Lewes Fireworks wasn't quite an idyllic fireworks night... but it definitely was a laugh! Burning crosses, a parade, fire all over the streets and thousands of people milling about all over the place. It was absolute chaos, but a very fun night with good company! I did take my camera like I said I would in my last blog post, but I didn't take my DSLR. I'd love to go back to Lewes in the day, it looked like a really pretty town! Here's a few photos from my night.

Oh! & It was a big surprise to bump into one of my oldest friends, Amy, on the way home! Hadn't seen her in a few months so was lovely to see her, even if it was only for a few minutes! 

What did you get up to on Bonfire night?

Notes For November...

Hello there, a November Resolution to start the month with...

(Image found via Pinterest. Originally from Krisatomic)

I have missed my blog so much whilst I haven't had internet in my flat. Not only have I missed updating mine, but also reading all the blogs I love, daily. But, whenever I got the chance to update or catch up I always felt like I wish I had something better to post when it came to photos. Since I moved to Brighton I have barely even touched my cameras... saaaaad face. I never put my cameras down when I was at home, I was always the one taking photos at parties and on days out. 

In such an exciting and new time of my life, why have I chosen to put the cameras away now? Confidence. I'm scared to take my cameras out for the 'why are you taking a photo of that?!' and 'put your camera away!' comments. How ridiculous is that!? I have relied on my iPhone for photos for the first 6 weeks of uni life, but as of now, that is going to stop! I'm going to try my absolute best to not be afraid to take my camera out with me and to take photos of anything I want to. 

November is one of my favourite months of the year. It's birthday month, fireworks night, the build up to christmas begins and it starts to get super wintery and chilly and then of course it's December and nothing makes me happier than christmas. I love it! So, there couldn't be a better time to start this.

What has your confidence stopped you from doing? Any other bloggers feel like this?

Happy Halloween!

Pretty pumpkins, scary movies, sticky toffee apples and dead school girls... pretty much sums up my halloween. I've never properly dressed up for halloween before so I was super excited to get into it! I'll definitely be buying contacts again next year, they successfully freaked everyone out! These are just a few quick photos from my iPhone to sum up my halloween! Next up, Fireworks night!

How was your halloween? What did you get up too?
