25 things to do this summer - 2014

Pic taken from Google Images (We heart it)

Hello Everyone,

So I know it has been a while and all I can say is I am truly sorry for that.  Life keeps getting in the way and I have had a lot on my plate at the moment.  I have given you explanations before but I'm not going to bore you with one today.  Instead I am just going to simply say that this is a new beginning.

Yesterday was my birthday and I had the most wonderful day.  I will do a couple of blog posts all about it showing you what I got and what I did.  I am currently on one of my new birthday presents, I am writing this from my brand new Macbook Air.  I am completely in love with it and am so over-whelmed by the gifts I have received this year.

Not only do I have a brand new laptop but a brand new camera which I treated myself to and in the words of my other half Dan 'The best internet money can buy'.  This is all now enabling me to create the blog I have always dreamed of and along with it a Youtube channel which I am really excited about.  I am determined to keep blogging and put this amazing and very generous gift to the good use it was intended.

Without waffling on too much more I am going to tell you what this blog post is all about.  A couple of weeks ago I watched a Youtube Video by Alfie Deyes or as he is more commonly known Pointless Blog TV.  He created a list of 25 things he wanted to do this summer and I after a while of thinking about it I decided what a great idea that would be.  To create a summer full of exciting things and to create some memories that will last a lifetime. In this post I will be telling you my list of 25 things I want to do this summer and then as I complete each one I will of course blog about it to let you know how I got on.

If you want to get in on the action then please do and let me know how you get on, I would love to know. 

Without further ado....My List.  (with a couple of extra at the bottom)

1. Go for a country walk

2. Bake some amazing cookies

6. Eat Breakfast outside

7. Bake some cake pops

8. Make a designer purchase

10. Visit my family in Wales

11. Spend time with Gracie (my cousin)

12.  Go to a model village

13. Spend time with Katie and Eva (my long-term best friend who I have known since I was 4 and her daughter, I love them to pieces but don't get to see them as often as i would like)

14.  Spend time with Mandy and the kids (Another great friend of mine and her family who I again don't get to see as often as I would like)

22. Read lots and review each book I read

24. Drive a Ferrari

25. At the end of the summer make a photo collage of the summer to hang on the wall to remind me of all the good times


1. Really make a go of blogging, make my blog design look nicer and more attractive, write about lots of different things and not just beauty reviews (thats why I added the AND MORE part of my blog name in, link products mentioned and just generally make it a nicer slice of the internet.

2. Make a go at Youtube, create a channel that I would enjoy watching as an outsider

3.  Keep my life generally more organised and in order


Don't forget to let me know if you decide to do a summer list like this.

Speak to you all very soon,
