Wreck This! Update

So you may have seen previous posts of mine about my 'Wreck this Journal' by Keri Smith. Here are my newest additions, still not feeling too creative at the moment. I don't know why maybe I have DIY overload? Looking at Pinterest everyday can be overwhelming! DSCF8649 DSCF8651DSCF8656

Bristol part 2

So second day in Bristol started out with a bit of adventure golf! yes indoor golf at Cabot Circus.
What I wore:
Red jeans, Internationale.
Shirt, Oasis
Shoes, Primark

PhotobucketPhotobucket I got a hole in one! (Ben got 3)
Photobucket Then we headed over to Park street my favourite shopping destination in Bristol. If you like vintage shops, charity shops and boutiques this is the place for you. The Motel store and Cath Kidston are there as well. We didn't have any money left so we didn't stop long. We jumped on the train back home to Cardiff. Emily x

Anniversary in Bristol part 1

Soooo this weekend me and my boyfriend of 4 YEARS (hehe anniversary next week) went to Bristol to celebrate and basically enjoy a bit of quality time together. We stayed at the Holiday Inn and WOW it was fabulous! Our room was massive and beautifully decorated. I booked it using I love the website it saved us a lot of money, Ive used it twice this year and it has allowed us to stay in posh hotels that we normally wouldn't be able to afford. The name of the website gives the impression that they are last minute deals but actually I booked the room a month ago. You also don't have to pay until you get to the hotel.
We did a little window shopping at Cabot Circus the newest shopping centre in Bristols busy city centre. It is impressive, I'm jelous as Cardiff doesn't have an American Apparel so I enjoyed lusting after the disco pants.
Next we went to the cinema and watched The Hunger Games. Oh my! We loved it! Most of you have probably already seen it as it has had a lot of well deserved hype. I'm not the best reviewer but my sister described it well, as Battle Royale meets Narnia. Sounds strange but makes sense when you see it. I want a sequel and quick!
After the film we were starving so headed over to Bella Italia for a purse friendly meal. Italian food is strange its meant to be romantic but in reality its messy and garlic flavoured (all things I love haha) luckily after 4 years me and Ben are comfortable with getting sauce on our face in front of each other. I wish I had taken pictures but here is what we ordered.

To Share: Garlic Bread sticks
Starters: Calamari, Stuffed mushrooms
Main: Meat Calzoni, Lamb Ragu and pasta

Tired and full we headed back to the hotel room (literally just behind the main high street) stopping off for some wine and beer on the way.
We enjoyed the comforts of the 4 star hotel (getting excited about having an ice bucket) and watching tv in bed. Photobucket

Part 2 tomorrow!

(P.S Ive just become aware this looks like a sponsored post because I'm raving about the hotel etc its not at all haha)

Saint Fagans

Ive been to Saint Fagans (Museum of Welsh Life) again :) Its such a nice place to have a wander, enjoy the beautiful outdoors and absorb a bit of history. This time I went with my Mum, sister and cousin who were visiting for a day. The weather was a bit hit and miss but there is plenty to see indoors as well as out. Vintage signs from the shop windows. Photobucket Photobucket
This is so me, cheese and crackers is my favourite snack Photobucket Surely this sounded funny 100 years ago, as it does to me now?

Lovely wildlife

Pretty gardens
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket I went to Bristol this weekend so my next post will be about what I got up to there. Did you get up to anything nice this weekend? Weather was pants wasn't it?! Emily x

Home visit

I am back at home for a few days to see my family and friends.

Me and my sister went out last night

I wore these babies! KATY PERRY EYELASHES! They are the same as all eyelure lashes really, same glue, just endorsed by my favourite, Miss KP.
You get a cool sticker in with them as and the packaging is super cute. They were good as well, easy to apply and stayed on all night and I think I can get another wear from them.

There are a couple of different styles available so I will try them next :)


Also the observant of you can see I have dyed my hair, the red faded a lot after its first wash and the difference in colour between my roots and ends was just ridiculous. I panicked and bought a dark colour...and boy did it go dark!! The colour is semi permanent so it should fade slightly *fingers crossed*

hair this dark just doesnt suit my colouring when will I learn?!

hope you all have exciting weeks planned!

New hair

This was a bit of a gamble, it only half paid off, I have major bright roots and darker red ends. Think I will keep it for a bit to see if my roots darken a little.Photobucket
this is me looking a bit scruffy

I bought this cute paint by numbers today.

It will look great hanging in the kitchen. When I'm in my wood panelled kitchen I like to pretend I am in the alps somewhere and outside my window are big icicles and a lovely ski resort town. If I were to have a holiday home it would be a chalet, they are so romantic even when the snow is gone!!

Ive already started to paint, here is what I have done so far
Ben is going to the gym tonight so I'm sure I will be doing this all evening with saturday night tv on in the background :)

Today was the first day of my weeks holiday off work so I am happy as a clam and have lots planned for the next few days.
