Birthday Plans

I'm a sucker for making life easier, this year there are many big events taking place including my 21st birthday. So there is lots of organising to take place,  my Pinterest boards are slowly filling up, there are ideas all over the place. If I can do it with minimal effort I will, luckily with the help of online shopping things can be done, I can look for great deals and I don't even have to leave the house! win-win right?!

So what are my plans so far: 

Entertainment - I have always wanted a photo booth, that people can muck about with and get some awesome photos! As I don't want to be the one carrying a camera around like normal.

Food - well as long as there is cake I am happy.

Drink - well it is my 21st so guess there better be something alcoholic ;)

Then I realised thanks to Tesco I can even have my wine delivered by the case, whether I want a particular wine or a mixed case. This does seem to be the best wine delivery uk, and saves me pushing around a trolley of heavy bottles and trying to get them home without breaking them. Yes I am clumsy! There happens to be some amazing deals, so I won't have to break the bank either. Another win in my books!

Goodie Bags - lots of sweets and I can even treat my guest to small bottle to take away as a token of thanks, what's better than a decent bit of cake and a glass of wine in the evening.

Aims for 2015

As the year begins to draw to a close, typically you start to find more and more discussions on what people's hope and dreams are for the next year. A lot of them stays as hopes and dreams, others push through and make them a reality. I wanted to set myself something simple, something I wish to do... Although there are still hopes and dreams I wish I could make reality, they are ones that take time.

This 'hope' however can be made reality, I WILL make reality... (Or give it a bloody good go) anxiety is horrible, I hate being in public, I hate the unknown of it all. More and more I realise how shut off that has made me, I don't have much of a social life. I am very much trapped in my routine, and in my mind. That is what I want to change, not so much getting a social life, I have the friendships I want, but I am fed up of missing out, I want to see different places, experience different things. Not too far from home, and too far from family. 

I want to go to The O2 - maybe get Paloma Faith tickets, or childhood favourites S Club 7. 

I want to have a day at a spa - get over the thought of other people near me.

I want to have a photoshoot - who knows I may gain some confidence.

I want to attend a blogging event - where I'm not going to freak out.

It all sounds silly when I write it like that, they are very normal things that I have seen people do twenty times over and yet, the thought of doing it for myself is overwhelming. Who knows though maybe 2015 will be the year.

Paddington Trail

Recently I have been seeing my Insta feed full of beautiful, colourful and quite amazing bears. As in thee Paddington Bear, the bear has retaken everyones hearts in height of the NEW movie. 

One Saturday we headed to London in order to check out some of these amazing statues and the bench situated in the Paddington Station itself. So did I find any, of course I did...
