water girl

Always been a water baby.

 

From being in the bath for hours on end.. to now living by the sea.

My water experiences started when I was fourteen. My mum used to send me and my brother Fred to a watersports Summer Camp. Taking part in Windsurfing, kayaking and sailing.
Getting older I got serious about learning everything I could about windsurfing; I aimed to become a Windsurfing Instructor, I bumped up all the levels I could one after the other Until eventually,  I was teaching.
I loved it! Having responsibilities, teaching people of all ages something you LOVE is such a fantastic feeling plus getting paid for doing something you enjoy is just a bonus.
Going into races against other competitors, winning trophies and certificated what more could a girl ask for!

Getting older as im sure you know life can draw your attention away from the things you love and you end up somewhat too busy to do the things you want,I was highly occupied with my full-time carer as a Teacher Assitant; there was never enough hours in the day to fit everything in,So sadly I had to sell all my equipment as there wasn’t enough room for it all and it was just going to waste sitting in the garage collecting dust when I knew there was someone out there who could make much better use of it.

So a short while later I moved to Devon, Rhys my fiancee soon joined me down devon to, and every direction from our house could easily lead us to the ocean.
Rhys being a “city boy” was never fond of the sea didn’t even entertain the idea of it when i mentioned it to him, he used to say things like “he would never be on that” and that “the sea was long” as he would put it haha

 

so while I had many beaches at my disposal, I thought why not start bodyboarding?

 

I have done it before, and I honestly believe that Rhys would love it. So we set off down to the beautiful store in Braunton “Tiki Hut” to get new wetsuits, boards and flippers. The excellent salesmen told us all information on the best brand, and what will be good for us to use, how to get the most fun out of body boarding, he is a great guy and also the store manager! We have to thank Mark for his patients with us and giving us mates rates when he can.

So here goes nothing we had arrived at Woolacombe beach and Rhys was standing there with his new wetsuit ready to go into the sea for his first time. The minutes flew past and Rhys was determined to get his first wave and get it on film and what did he do! Exactly that (although it took some time). He was acting like a young boy first learning to ride a bike until he started peddling on his own he wasn’t getting off of that bike, not for anyone.
He finally caught what he needed to, and now he won’t shut up about it.

I am so happy that we have now both something we love doing as a couple, and the bonus is it’s an excellent way to keep fit no paying for the membership for a gym.

So with Rhys’s new found addiction for the sea we decided it would be a good idea to get surf boards also so when the swell isn’t too high and we cant enjoy our body boards because the waves are too small we can now take the boards out and teach ourselves how to use them instead! (although this is a LOT harder to do)In less than a year we have built up somewhat of a quiver and now have five body boards, three surf boards two wet suits and full winter gear so we can get out doing what we enjoy! in fact this month we have been out in the sea, and in Feb we have our good friends down from London for a visit, so you know the winter gear will be back on!

 

So going back to what Rhys once said…and i quote “the sea is long” well guess who sold there pride and joy type r to buy a surf bus for the beach…yeh you got it and Rhys loves his van and whenever were even mentioning going to the beach before we even agree he is out there loading the van up and buzzing to leave! On the plus side now we don’t have to stand outside when were getting changed as he has a long wheel base caddy with tinted windows so we have comfort and warmth to say we have had a lifestyle change would be a slight understatement.

 

well that’s a little bit of a story on my water baby history but I must dash as we are off to our resident spot Woolacombe!

 

surfs up, dudes!

 

 

 

 

 

Alpaca Adventure

THE  WALK  THAT  WILL  NEVER  BE  FORGOTON…

 This was one of the most 𝓂𝒶𝑔𝒾𝒸𝒶𝓁 𝓂𝑜𝓂𝑒𝓃𝓉𝓈 of my life. Of course, it isn’t everyone’s dream, but it was one of mine. My incredible other half booked me an experience, for a not only half a day a whole day. With these affectionate gorgeous loveable animals!

So when arriving at this stunning vintage house in the middle of the countryside.. sitting in the car and looking out the window to see what my surprise would be! “ALPACA EXPERIENCE” I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. As you can tell by my face below, excitement was an understatement. 
We go into the entrance, where we meet our tour guides 𝓂𝓇 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝓂𝓇𝓈 𝓌𝑜𝑜𝓁𝓁𝓎, they shared with us lots interesting facts about the animals on the farm that I never knew about! I appreciated all the information given to me, especially it being about these beautiful creatures they have on their farm.


So while taking snaps of everything around me, and trying to control my excitement. I turn around and guess what I see.. a pack of alpacas not one but bloody fourteen of them. I squeak out loud “𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝓀𝓀𝓀𝓀𝓀𝓀𝓀𝓀” 

So while 𝓂𝓇 𝓌𝑜𝑜𝓁𝓁𝓎 herds the group of alpacas up and puts them in a pen, which is behind us in the photo above I was looking at all the unique names that had been given to each cutie.
As it was my 𝒷𝒾𝓇𝓉𝒽𝒹𝒶𝓎 𝓉𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓉 I was given an adorable card and then I got to choose what alpaca I wanted to walk. It was near enough impossible, BUT one beauty caught my eye! “𝑔𝑜𝓃𝓏𝑜.”

So everyone picked there alpaca and off we set for our adventure. We walked for an hour across the beautiful countryside. Rhys had the alpha of the pack, I was just behind him with one of the twins. What a fantastic experience I couldn’t tell you how funny it was. Maybe some photos below could give you a good idea of how my day went.

 

 

               

After the walk, we went up to the farmhouse to give milk to the baby goats, so sweet.
They are like little living hot water bottles, Warm and cuddly.
By the way, this is Pickle.

 

So after my Alpaca experience, Rhys surprised me with adoption papers for Gonzo! I was so happy! If that wasn’t enough, we got to feed the goats and spend time with the farm dogs.
At the end of the day, we all sat down and filled our tummies up with the warm freshly cooked scones and a nice cuppa! Then out of nowhere a birthday cake appeared and everyone sang.(embarrassing)

                           

The gift shop was small but such amazing things to buy.
As always I got carried away. You guys have got to try the Alpaca wool socks they are so warm and toasty, The Harry Potter colours of the socks was such a bonus.

WHAT A PERFECT ENDING TO MY BIRTHDAY.

Love Always

Unicorn horns & Mermaid Tails

 

 

These girls have changed my MAKE UP collection forever. It’s MERMAZING….

For them to support me on twitter and instrgam is just awesome.
They really have changed my outlook on life, if you have a idea run with it don’t give in. Follow your dreams no matter what. Thank you so much for everything girls.

Who would have thought that two sisters SOPHIE AND HANNAH from Wales would now own a business worth 8 million pounds?  What an amazing magical journey, carry on reading to find out more and my own personal collection..

 

      U M 

 

The adventure began when the beautiful sisters, sat in comfortable Pj’s in their garage for hours and hours coming up with a genius idea. While they were sitting back drinking their cups of tea’s Designing makeup brushes, what they didn’t realise was how far their stunning business idea would go.

GIRLS HAVEN’T THEY GONE FAR?

The Beautiful Unquie Design of each set is just stunning. The thought and time that has gone into each collection Perfection in the making.
“Crafted from the highest-quality synthetic hair, every brush is vegan and animal-friendly
. Which Is one of the many reasons why I love the brushes.”

Sophie said: ‘People love us because we’re different.
People love unicorns and mermaids
as a way of saying they’re not like everyone else.’ 

NOT JUST ANY MAKE UP BRUSHES.

Brushes that look feel and stand out differently from any other brush.
Brushes that catch the eye of hundreds of people around the world.
Brushes that last and never lose their colour.
Brushes that are protected by the gorgeous shell or roll cases.

 

These queens have always been one of my top idols, despite their terrible factory disaster they are so inspiring to so many women around the world. The world had supported them when the girls were in need of it! #GirlGang

Ted Baker ♡

Well, I am on a blogging role at the moment.
Every since I was in my teens I would go shopping to BlueWater with my mum, they have the best Ted Baker store obviously apart from London’s, but that’s miles away.
Walking into a Ted Baker store the colours beaming out to me, the pastel colours pinks, blues, greens, yellows and purples. You can always tell on Ted Baker clothing and accessories they have their original floral prints.

♡BAGS BAGS BAGS   ♡  WATCHES♡ AND CLOTHING♡

                                  

My watch, for example, has the beautiful floral print.

Only the one on the right is Ted Baker, but it’s identical to the white watch just the colour difference.

 

Of course, I love their decorative bags, but I am a lover the classy, sassy everyday colours when buying bags. Obviously not forgetting my colour pink. This bag is the most practical bag I have ever owned it has big compartment and sections which I love as the organisation is key to every bag.Bags are one of the main reason for my happiness, yes its sad and I need to get a life but each to their own. My weekend bag, this floral pattern is perfection the pink canvas with the basic greys and pastel blue flowers complementing each other so perfectly.

 

 

 

Now these bad boys, I haven’t been able to find sliders that feet my feet properly. Also finding the right ones that aren’t cheap to prevent rubbing when I walk and these are the ones! Paying a little bit extra who wouldn’t buy them?
The gorgeous floral design and the super soft flexible material which supports your feet as you walk with an under a coating of fur on the strap to prevent your feet sliding back and forth.
The pinkness is just enough not too much. Perfection in the making.

 

 

 

 

 

NO WORDS NEEDED

                                   

 

 

♡TOILETRIES  &   MAKE UP♡

 

Ted Baker essentials, believe it or not, I got all of the above from Boots I could not get over that they had a whole section dedicated to Ted Baker products! Which is why I now live in boots now haha!
So I am going to run through all the products above and each items price and rate them. My ratings are
in my opinion only.. of course, everyone’s views and choices will be different.

 


Bow Box
set which included Body Cream, Body Wash and a Poof (that’s what I call it) I don’t know whether that’s the right name. This product only costs £18.00 cheap I know three for two on all Ted Baker products.
Product rating★★★ ★ ☆  Missing only missing one star due to there being enough space for other products such as the lip balm.


The thick, luxurious Bubble Bath is amazing quality with the scent of sweet flowers.Making skin feel enriched and soft. With the pink plastic with the decorative flowers on the background. 400ml for only £12.00. Also is in thew sale for three for two.
Product rating; ★★★★★ Nothing to complain about, high ratings all round.

 The product has been priced reasonably. Smell and thickness fantastic product!

 


Body Wash Is the same scent as the Bubble Bath above; nothing changed apart from the bottle type and the thickness of the gel. One thing I would say about this is the tube isn’t as big as the Bubble Bath bottle. Which has let it down from getting five stars from me.
It’s again very cheaply priced which is amazing! £10.00 Also a part of the Three for Two sales.
Product Rating: ★★★★☆


Lip Balm set, I am extremely fussy with what I use on my lips. As they are always dry and chapped. I was nervous just in case it made them worse. I have tried other products before such as lip masks and lip balms, I even tried drinking more water nothing seemed to work.
It was like magic they are so soft and moisturised. Ted Baker Rocks! It comes with three types inside. This is also included for Three for Two. Price only £12.00
Product rating ★★★★★ They get such a high rating from me as they completely revamped my lips. One happy customer. 

..

 


Hand Cream everyone needs hand cream in their life, who doesn’t! After a long day at work. washing my hands continuously due to my OCD habits I then cream my hands to ensure they don’t get dry and cracked. Very good hand cream to show I have to say. This was only £8.00 BARGAIN
In the Sale of Three for Two again.
Product Rating; ★★★★★ Full Stars of course happy me.

 

I think that is enough don’t you, I hope you have enjoyed reading.

Love always
