Hola! Long time no speak. I decided it was way to full on to blog during my time away in Romania so I took hundred's, if not thousands of photographs and noted down everything I have to tell you so I'll be writing a couple of posts up that I'll publish over the next week or two! We arrived back into Liverpool airport last night, after the most sweaty, uncomfortable flight of my life (remind me never to travel with Blue Air again). Thankfully it was sunny and we had the most gorgeous ride home in the comfort of our own car, which felt like a dream after travelling around in a small rental during most of our time there. Today, we woke up early and went for a run which FYI I was literally nearly dying, I felt like I was back at square one again after a week of eating everything in sight. Later, we took the dogs for a walk by the river, had an ice cream at Hansen's and then we had dinner in my mum and dad's garden. I can't believe how much has changed in a week at home, all the plants are flowering, the trees are lush and bright green, it's truly beautiful and I'm so so thankful I live where I do (probably won't be saying this next week when it's raining but I'll embrace it while the sun is shining, haha!). Now, finish putting clothes, suitcases etc. away and then I think we might do a short walk in the morning but we're not sure as we're both so tired. Speak again soon, L.

Some of you may have seen some photos from yesterday's photoshoot over on my Instagram stories. I feel so weird saying 'photoshoot' because in no means am I a model but I was asked, along with 4 other gorgeous girlies to shoot a collection for Sophie's final project at London College of Fashion. Amazing right?! Not only that but we found out she also helped towards designing Michelle Keegan's last collection for Very and has bagged herself a job at Very after Uni is all over and done with. She's seriously incredible and I'm so thankful she asked ME of all people to model her collection! We were able to use the Old Dungeon Gyhll bar area to get ready which was a god send. It's a good job Soph didn't get make up and hair stylists because we got drenched but it totally made the look. We had an amazing photographer, Becky who I've worked with before for a collection Soph did years ago, during her first year at uni and even though I didn't like how I looked she really made me feel confident in front of the camera which is pretty difficult. The gang we had was such a good group and even though it rained and it poured and our tummy's were grumbling, we battled on and everyone was so optimistic. I really feel inspired meeting these girls, it was like a breath of fresh air. I cannot wait to see the final photos and of course I will share them here with you all too.

Tonight, we are getting sorted for our holiday. I know I have said this for the past 3 weeks but I haven't actually managed to start packing yet so I'm going to start tonight (probably) haha! Then I have one day left of work and then I'm on holiday!! I literally cannot wait. So excited to get away for a week and relax, eat good food and visit a new place with amazing friends and of course my love. Speak to you again maybe tomorrow. Love, L.

We spent the afternoon at the Lakes Aquarium at Newby Bridge. It's a little pricey for what there is to see but I feel it's good to support local attractions. My favourite was seeing two otter's, Ollie and Lucy! They're seriously cute. We went out the other evening looking for them in the wild at the iron bridge where we live, as apparently there have been sighting's of them but unfortunately had no luck seeing them. There were also huge Sturgeon and Pike too, which pass over your head in a tunnel and stingrays, although I was a little disappointed you're no longer allowed to touch them, I used to love doing that as a kid! Then we grabbed some lunch at Homeground! We thought we would try again as my last attempt was pretty poor, I was seriously hungover and couldn't even touch my eggs benedict πŸ™ I remember running to the toilet and having to pull myself together in order to hold my sick in and not embarrass myself... bad times! This time Josh chose the eggs benny and I went for the Homeground sarnie - which is bloody delicious! I was a little sceptical on the smash avo as I'd never really had it before but I completely understand all the hype around smash avocado now and I'm going to be making my own with my famous poached eggs πŸ˜‰ The wait was a little long and my stomach was starting to grumble but totally worth the wait, especially for their hash browns! Hashbrown's are just the best aren't they? Anyway, I think I've rambled on enough and I'm ready for a lie down. Speak again soon, L.

Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's been almost a week since I last checked in here! The day's are whizzing by lately! This weekend has been busy, I ran my first 3k yesterday (not that far but I could never have ran that before without stopping), helped my mum cooking for a party of 11 which was fun and hopefully I pick up some cooking skills along the way. I've started getting thing's together for our trip away and I'm going to film a 'packing for Romania' video because I really want to get back into it again. We have plans to visit Therme and do lots of walking, the weather should be pretty warm which I'm looking forward to! I've been getting myself prepared by having a few sun bed sessions, although I'm not seeing much difference yet. Today, well I guess we are going to go for a little stroll somewhere but nothing too big as Josh has a dead leg from football and can barely walk, which sucks because I really wanted to tackle a mountain this weekend. So typical, when I want to do something he can't πŸ™ I've seen a cave near Little Langdale that I'd like to go to but just depends how tough it is to get to because I obviously have to deal with Mr Hopalong today.. haha! Anyway, have a lovely Sunday, I will check in again later. L <3

Hey lovelies! Another lovely day spent with my love. I cherish Sunday's so much, especially when we can lie in together and cook breakfast. This morning I made the most perfect poached eggs, as usual πŸ˜‰ Then we spent the afternoon at Williamson Park in Lancaster. It has beautiful grounds and a butterfly house, which is like a sauna by the way so if you ever get chance to go make sure you're wearing something you can take off! There were so many butterflies and all very big too! It was hard to get a decent picture of them though because they kept flying away. There were meerkats too and a few other animals but I just wanted to bring the meerkats home, they were so cute and we felt sorry for them just stuck in a cage. It just doesn't feel right seeing animals like that anymore, even though I used to enjoy visiting zoos when I was a child. I also managed to curl my hair myself too! I've never done it before but after seeing it done last week by my hairdresser I think I want to have it like that all the time. I just did it with my cloud 9 hair straighteners, what do you think of it? I feel more girly with it like this! We also went to see our storage unit where we will be begin making furniture, something we have wanted to do for a long time! You can follow us over on our Instagram account here and keep up to date with what we're upto. Speak to you again soon and enjoy the rest of your Sunday, L.

Hey loves! Happy Saturday πŸ™‚ What a morning we have had! This morning we woke up at 4am to tackle Hellvelyn and watch the sunrise from striding edge.. however that's not exactly what happened. The journey over to Glennridding was terrible, we came across deer, a hare, sheep and badger's all on the road so ended up arriving later than scheduled. I was still hopeful that the fog would clear and the clouds would disperse as soon as we reached the scary bit.. striding edge. It didn't clear so we enjoyed a hot chocolate and a sandwich in the fog and even had a performance from a little stoat, so cute! I had read about a few fatal accidents that have recently happened on striding edge due to fog so we decided not to take any risks and carry on to Red Tarn and venture back down to the car. Eventually the sun came out and we passed several groups of walkers making their way up the mountain. I was a little envious as I really wanted to make it to the top today but never mind, we can always try again soon. The plan for the rest of the day is to chill, watch a movie and maybe have a nap seeing as though we've been up for almost 12 hours already! So I shall speak to you again tomorrow, love L.

7 months since my last hair cut... 7 long months! Just looking at that first picture from earlier today makes me think, 'Jesus! Did I really walk around looking like a scarecrow for that long?!' Seriously though I'm so happy with my cut today. Ben has been my hairdresser since I was 17 and I've had a few different hair dressers in between but I'm always happy with how it looks after visiting him. He's recently moved to a new salon called 'Colman & Colman', a beautiful old Georgian building which sits almost opposite the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. The decor is 100% to my liking, with dark grey walls, 60's wooden flooring, chandeliers and huge antique gold mirrors. It also features a gin cabinet, I mean come on... That's just the icing on the cake, am I right? Anyway.. back to my new do.Β We went for 3-4 inches off which is a heck of a lot even though I said I was never chopping much off again. I was also pretty inspired by Kimmy K's blunt cut she had a few months back so that's exactly what we went for but Ben decided to add a little wave in as he knows I always straighten it, every single day! What do you think? I love it and I think it's perfect for the Spring and Summer months approaching, as well as our trip to Romania next month.. Eeek! Speak again soon, L.

What makes you happy? Lying in on a Sunday morning, watching snow fall, cuddles with your cat, watching the sunset after a beautiful day. Ah, I could name so many thing's that make me happy and they're all priceless. It seems as though the older I get the more I appreciate the smaller thing's in life. Today has been a be-au-tiful day and I spent the majority of it indoors, at work... However, we are planning on tackling a mountain this weekend which I am very excited about as it has been weeks since we've been able to get out in the fresh air, I'm just hoping that the weather stays as lovely as it has been today πŸ™‚ I'm trying to get Josh to help me with photograph's and here are a couple from last night, haha! Still very shy in front of the camera but I quite like these and can't wait to play around this summer a bit more! Lots of love, L.

Morning loves! Woke up feeling so positive about the week ahead. No more eating crap (lol). Oh and I'm finally getting my hair done tomorrow, cannot wait! I keep changing my mind about what I want to have done.. argh! Oh well, I will post tomorrow and show you what the outcome is. I haven't had it cut since September so right now I can't even bother doing anything with it.Β Yesterday we caught the ferry over to Hawkshead from Bowness. It's an easy way of getting over as the roads are quite tight and pretty windy and I wasn't up for that. It's only Β£4.50 per car which I think it pretty reasonable! A nice 10/15 minute ride over Lake Windermere even if it was grey and cloudy! Now I have to go to work, speak again tomorrow. Hugs, L.

What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than eating ice cream? I've been wanting to visit The Little Ice Cream Shop in forever and today we made it happen even though I had to drag Josh out of bed. I chose the 'cheeky cappuccino' with a smarty cone and what ice cream is complete without a flake? It was delicious! Josh went for the most popular flavour 'salted caramel', topped with fudge bits and Nutella sauce which looked awesome but not quite sure how he managed two big scoops... We bought a bath bomb from 'Agnes and Cat', which joins on to The Little Ice Cream Shop. I am excited to use it tonight as I've never used a bath bomb before, even though I've always been tempted to buy one from Lush, I thought it would be better to give something local made a try first. Now we are home and I'm searching for an Air BnB for our weekend in Glasgow and I think I've found the perfect one πŸ™‚ I'd love to know if you have any recommendations for restaurants in the city because we all know how much I love food... Lots of love, L.

Hey! Finally, an incredibly beautiful day here in Sedbergh. Just what I needed for my day off... doing nothing! πŸ˜‰ Haha, no that's a total lie, I woke up early and went to the gym with my friend Emma and had another Thai lesson with Angela which I feel is finally sinking in to my brain. I'm learning all about bartering and asking the prices for taxis and thing's like that which is really useful because in Thailand they do charge you more for being a 'farrang', which means Westerner.Β Then my Gran and I went for a short walk and stopped at a local pub for a g&t and for the rest of the day I have eaten, watched television and I de-veined (I think that is what it's called) loads of prawns for Josh because I'm making him tempura prawns! My Mum showed me how to do it, you pull the head off and strip the prawn of it's shell, then with a sharp knife you cut under the 'belly' from top to bottom and same again on the 'spine' of the prawn to remove it's poo etc. It's really stringy and reminds me of the black stuff I sometimes get in my eye after wearing heavy eye make up, haha gross! But he loves them and it's the first time I'm making them so I hope they turn out ok. I even made the tempura batter, domestic goddess in the making ;-)! Love, L.

Ps. I hate my face at the moment - my skin is horrendous & no I don't have chicken pox.

A night out in Leeds would not be complete without a couple of drunk selfies with the Polaroid, am I right? Seriously, this camera lives in my handbag and although its fairly bulky I can't imagine not having it with me to capture these special moments... like doing shots at 11pm, whilst slut dropping to some old school RnB.. proud moment. I still think I'm recovering from the weekend if I'm honest πŸ˜‰ I'm just not made for it anymore! In fact, was I ever? I'm currently looking forward to seeing all of the girls in a couple of weeks time, except Amy who's currently sunning herself in Thailand.. not jealous in the slightest! Life at the moment is mediocre, I'm neither here nor there. Still got a burning desire in my stomach to create something magical but we're working on that, so as time slowly ticks on by I'm going to carry on updating you with my boring life, what I ate for tea (spaghetti bolognese for those who want to know), what I did in the gym and what I did on the weekend and I still believe that my time will come and I'm going to be where I want to be eventually. Now I'm not even sure what the hell I am rambling on about so I'm going to love you and leave you. Speak soon loves, L.
