walking on sunshine

Since my last post (quite a while ago, sorry about that!) I have been catching up with friends and some much needed sleep. Our adventure to Pitlochry was about lie-ins and long walks. Since a little girl I have loved forests that I could get lost in. We spent our evenings eating ice cream and staying up too late. It was beautiful. I've decided to share these photos, even though I feel they are a little weak. I was too busy chatting to the girls, to be overly snap happy.

travelling light

Packing coming up to midnight is always a bad idea, but I'm such a last minute person, I never really learn. Tomorrow I'm off to explore the gaelic town Pitlochry with the girls. Which I hope will lead to a more interesting post. For now, my 5 traveling essentials-
1. Florals, I'm crazy for them and summer brings out my expansive floral ward-drobe 
2. Vaseline, confessed lip balm junkie
3. Filofax, 9/10 times I don't need it, but that 1 time, o it grinds me 
4. Smart phone, so I can keep in touch with the world *cough* play Angry Birds
5. Macbook Pro, need I say more
The essential not featuring in my list is my camera, because it isn't really a travel essential, more just an essential of everyday life. It goes everywhere with me, much like my bank card. 
Some last minute travel advice? Spray the inside of your bag with your favourite perfume, right now I'm wearing Angel, and when you open your suitcase your clothes will smell beautiful.

Biffy Clyro- Machines

Between sleep-deprived nightshifts at the care home, I found myself jetting off to Stirling to visit my friend, who is coincidently the future "Dr House". Together we wondered and found a quaint restaurant by a lake called "The River House", serving the most beautiful food. I couldn't resist getting my camera out between the stories and the calories.

today I'm listening to

baby you're beautiful

Days like today make me smile. It all started off with some summer sunshine, meaning that for the first time all year I could wear a skirt and no tights. A few texts later; me and the girls were off for a picnic. Finishing our day later with a movie, candles and good chat. I've even got a bit of sun burn, what a perfect day.

20, nearly an adult.

Do you remember your childhood longing towards finally being a "grown up". For me the word adult was combined with, beauty, confidence, popularity along with many more wonderful and at that time entirely achievable desires. I was sure that when the time came I would feel responsible and sure of myself. If I'm honest with myself, I feel none of these personality traits, and I'm still looking forward, wondering when and if I will ever be ready and mature enough to fill my childhood definition of adult. Yes, I may not feel entirely sure of myself yet, however, I do feel sure of the friendships I've made and lessons I've learnt along the way. My life is by no means perfect, but I enjoy it and love the people I spend it with, and if you would like, I can share some of it with you. Which brings us to the celebration of me becoming one year older, and not at all wiser. It was a tame night, but tame can be fun, when it's spent with your nearest and dearest. So don't laugh when I tell you this, okay? Home made pizza and tribal pursuit. And yes I won (my friends let me).
