MyTrendingStories?

Hi Lovelies,

I have partnered with a company called My Trending Stories recently and if you are wondering what it is or why? I am here to explain 🙂

The company contacted me and told me that they enjoyed my post and that they would love if I would write some of my blogs on their website and with lots of research I thought it couldn’t hurt.

I have decided to keep doing this blog (of course)! and then write some more inspirational and christian posts on the other website.

here is the link to my first post if you want to check it out

I hope you enjoy xx

One of the more ‘fun’ activities we got to do was the amazing race which I didn’t quite enjoy as the whole time I was hangry and tired but still a great experience

We went for a quick trip to Mt. Wellington where we froze and got all rugged up for there to not be any view as there was too much fog hahah

On one of the days we had a couple hours free so we had a choice of either going shopping or going to an art museum and I went with the art as I knew I would just waste money going shopping but this butterfly piece caught my eye immediately as they are so beautiful.

This was also in the art gallery and its amazing it was a very long painting on a storm with lights behind it to create the lightning IMG_9505

My Go To Jewellery

Hi Lovely’s,

So sorry I haven’t been around much on this blog I have had massive writers block and haven’t had much time with school but I came to the realisation that I can still do simple posts but put enough effort into them that they are up to my goal standard.

I thought today I would just share with you all this picture of my favourite accessories that I wear on a day to day basis. I love rings and dainty necklaces and just small simple pieces that add a little something to the outfit.

I have a lot more jewellery  that I wear but these are my go to’s that if I don’t know what to wear I will just pick these pieces up and Im good to go

 

Let me know what pieces you like to wear!!

My Day Out At Seaworld

Hi Lovely’s,

Today my beautiful friend Miki and I went for a lovely day at seaworld.

We were super worried that it would rain and would ruin our plans as its all outsid but thank the lord it was perfect weather!

I thought I would share with you all some photos I took of the beautiful animals.

PAS_8383

Our first stop was visiting the adult Penguins who were so cute, I think penguins are one of my favourite animals now!!!

PAS_8384

Same penguin as before

As you can see from this picture it was pretty windy by the water!! All around sea world they had these weird statues of animals like the one in the background of this photo that would move and blow steam out of its mouth which was so weird.

PAS_8426

The dolphins were so animated and so beautiful

PAS_8432

PAS_8442

what a beauty my friend Miki is!!!

PAS_8472

We got to see baby penguins!!! they were so tiny and small it was unbelievable. All the other babies were swimming together and this little one was by itself.

The dolphin show was amazing I even teared up a little bit, dolphins are such beautiful creatures! this was definitely the highlight of my day.

 

here are some shots I got of them:

Loose and Edgy

Hi lovely’s,

If you have visited my page in the last couple of days you probably noticed that I have changed my blog and with that I am going to be changing the aim of my posts as well.

The first post to start my new and improved blog is a fashion post. Recently I have been trying to wear all different things that I have in my cupboard that I don’t usually wear and these pants are definitely in that category. I have never really worn loose fitting jeans as Ive always found skinny jeans to fit my figure better, but I thought I might give them a try.

Attachment-1 (1)

These jeans were my mums that she very kindly passed down to me!

Tip 1. I always like to have the bottom folded

Tip 2. I like to wear a nice comfy T-shirt or a baggy sweater

Tip 3. make the shirt the thing that people look at

Tip 4. wear stylish but comfy shoes

Tip 5. mix and match different things and make it your own

Attachment-1

Top- Angus and Julia Stone

Shoes- knock off Birkenstocks

Jeans- stole off my mum

acceseries- lovisa

Attachment-1 (3)Attachment-1 (2)

If you want me to do a tutorial on the makeup i’m wearing here let me know.

Before I Go To Sleep – Book Review

My mum recently bought me a few new books for the holidays that just went past. I asked her to surprise me as I couldn’t make up mind as to what books I wanted and one of the amazing books she picked up is called – Before I go to sleep by S.J Watson. It is a thriller that you might recognize the name as it in 2014 was turned into a movie with Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

the plot:

As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child, thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me…

Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love–all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.

 

My Review:

From the minute I started this book I just wanted to know why it was a thriller as the beginning seemed so innocent and almost mellow as she wakes up and has no idea where or who anything is. Most of the book I felt bad for her poor husband as every morning he wakes up and his wife has no idea who he is… but if only I knew what was to come.

This book was so thrilling and had one of the best twists in a story that I have read. I enjoyed every minute of it and didn’t want it to end. The movie doesn’t do it justice so read the book. Even if you have seen movie and are thinking “oh it didn’t look too good” trust me I have never been into thriller books but I am now reconsidering my choice hahah

My Score:

I give this book a 4.5/5

**By the way this book does have some minor swearing and sexual content but can easily be skipped without missing any content. **
