Travelling Planning.

Hello Humans! Hope your week has been good! As you read this, I'm currently in Ireland, having the most amazing time with family. (Already sad to go home and I've just got here!)

In today's post, I'm going to talk about how I plan for travelling to Ireland. It's just a weekend trip, I'm only going to Ireland on a plane for less than an hour, but I STILL need to plan!!




Make a list!



I find making lists of everything I want to take so useful. It doesn't help that I'm overly organised, and lists excites me. (Yes, I am a nerd.) I find this useful, so then if I have anything else that I want to add to the list, I can during the week.




Keep it light.


Remember that yes, you're technically going on a small vacation, you're still only travelling a domestic flight. Which means a; you can only have 10kg of luggage, including a handbag, and b; you actually have to keep the luggage with you.

I use a small hand luggage every time I go (as you can see, lol), and this one is actually my mum's, because mine ripped inside - sad times. I like this one however, as it's a good size and a lightweight suitcase. And because I'm short af, I need a suitcase that I can have under the seat in front of me, because I can't reach the overhead locker thingy.




Check the weather.

I mean, no offence to Ireland, but it has the most shitty weather ever! It always rains and when it's sunny, you can guarantee it's the last day of the trip and you're only there for the morning and then you're back to England. BUT there's a possibility that we're having a bbq this weekend, so you know I'm excited for that!!!!




H A V E  F U N !

As cheesy as it sounds, just enjoy it. Don't stress, argue, etc. Make memories, capture the moments and keep them forever. 



And those are my few tips and tricks. Most of my travelling consists on me stressing over my dad being too laid back and then running through the airport to get the flight... ðŸ™„ This is my first EVER time flying by myself. Not with a parent, not with Phoebe. LITERALLY by myself! If you want to see how I get along, look out for my Ireland post on Monday. (A big-ass vlog is going up Monday and a music-style video is going up on Tuesday!)

Because I'm so excited to get there as I write this, please enjoy some of my previous Ireland videos... ðŸ˜

Darkness & Loneliness

It starts off gradually,
Almost as if you barely feel it.
And then it creeps up your throat,
And it's like you can't breathe.

It spreads all over your body,
Until you feel it everywhere;
Nothing.

You feel everything shut down,
And there's screaming in your head:
Everything you've not said,
Everything you've thought.

You sit there, waiting.
For it to stop feeling numb,
For it to stop hurting at the same time.

It's everything all in one,
And it's the hope that it stops.
Tick, tock. Tick, tock...

MUSIC MONDAY; NOUGHTIES EDITION! 🎶

Hello Humans! Hope you're all well! I'm currently counting down the days until the weekend (which means it'll probs go slow ðŸ™„). A N Y W A Y, you'll see the full vlog and a music-style video next Monday and Tuesday!

SO THIS BLOG POST! I've decided to throw it back to my childhood and share with you some of the songs/artists that I love/d!



Westlife - Uptown Girl

OH EM GEE! I absolutely LOVE Westlife. Always have - always will! But this song!!!! ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ The video, the song, the freaking vibe! Everything about this song is just amazing! It was for red nose day and all money went to charity. I dunno, I miss these boys. And I'm sad that they broke up.



Girls Aloud - Jump

Okay I only chose this one because I wanted to use this gif. I'm not gonna lie, I wasn't the biggest fan of Girls Aloud, but I do love this song. And I love Hugh Grant in this scene. Girls Aloud was so popular in the 2000s.



S Club 7 - Reach

Oh my god okay. So I used to LOVE S Club 7 back in the day! I used to have the magazines, this box thing to put them in. I was a MASSIVE fan of S Club 7! I feel like you were a fan of Steps or S Club 7, and I dunno. Steps never really interested me that much, however I did like some of their songs.



Sugababes - Round Round

God I love a little bit of Sugababes. I know they changed members constantly, but this era was MY ERA! And I fricking loved it!! This album was perf, and I love so many of their songs, and whenever I hear their songs, I get so excited.



Robbie Williams - Rock DJ

My love for Robbie Williams is all thanks to my brother. He was, and still is, obsessed with him. This music video is so weird, but that's how he is and how he loves to be. But this is deffo the song I first heard from him, that I loved! But yeah, be prepared if you watch the video. Just, be prepared.



And those are the songs/artists I used to love in the 2000's/noughties! Let me know in the comments which songs you used to love, and if you've only just discovered some of these artists now, you are welcome!

FLASHBACK FRIDAY; NEW YORK CITY!


ELLO LOVES! It’s Friday! Have ya got that Friday Feeling?! Anyone working tomorrow? Yep, me too. Oh wellllllll.

So thanks to Zoë/Zoella I now have a HUGE hole in my heart, because I MISS NEW YORK CITY! So I thought I'd do a quick Flashback Friday on here and relive some of the mems.

 Look at my genuine happiness! This is when we were in the Observatory, and I genuinely could not believe how HUGE New York was as a whole. We had fancy iPads (as you can see here in the pic), and certain buildings came up with a video filled with facts. It was really interesting!
And that is only PART of it! 

So Feebs came up with this idea of us getting a picture pretending to move the rock. Getting up there was the most difficult part and I was so petrified.

 Also enjoy a few vlogs I put together from my trip;

What I'll Wear Wednesday.

Hell Humans, I’m back with aBLOODYnother blog post! Instead of a What I Wore Wednesday, I’ve decided to do it for something I’m planning on wearing when I go to Ireland! (9 DAYS TO GO!!) I love this outfit, and I’ve been trying to do a bloody Shop The Look widget but apparently it’s too hard! (It’s not that it’s hard, apparently the stuff I wear isn’t on the website, so dunno! [shrug emoji]) So I’ll just do it my own way LOLS.

blouse - new look // jeans - miss selfridge // shoes - forbidden heels

I have always wanted a top like this, and always pictured it just like this! 

This outfit will be if we go out for food or somewhere like that. I’m really excited for Ireland to see my brother, sister in law, and my niece and nephew. There’s going to be a big ol’ vlog coming as well, so look out for that on Monday 23rd April.

My New Little Details.

Hello Humans – I hope you’re doing well! I’m not going to lie; I’m still trying to figure out what kind of direction I want to take my blog, (i.e. if I want it to be lifestyle, reviews, beauty, fashion, food/drink, etc.) But as I’m still figuring it out, I thought I’d do more of a lifestyle post with you all…
I went to flipping Ikea! I’ll admit, I was in such a FOUL mood on Saturday, and I have no idea what was wrong with me. Phoebe tried to help, but once I’m in one of those moods, there’s just no breaking it. But apparently, a bit of good ol’ Ikea can put a smile right back on my face! I got a few bits and bobs, which I absolutely love, so let’s get cracalacking!


So then first thing I got that I’ve kind of been wanting for a while, are these cute little cactuses. HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! So I actually only wanted to get one like the one in the middle, but these came in a box of 3, and I thought, “why not?” I love the grey pots too. I feel like it suits my bedroom vibe at my mum’s. Also, note to self: Brogan, remember to bloody water them. (Which will be awks because I’m only here on a weekend. Yikes!)


Next could technically be random???? But I have an OBSESSION with storage boxes. I don’t know why, but every time I see them, I get so excited and just find a reason to buy it! And this one was so cute, I picked it up and was like, “I could use this to put my skincare products in.” *rolls eyes* I really don’t need another storage box. I still have one in my room at my dad’s, that’s just there. It’s my box of stuff that just gets dumped there. I feel bad, and I really need a good ol’ clearout. Maybe I’ll do that Thursday… ðŸ¤”

But anyway, I have a new storage box. My dad is going to kill me. And I think so is my subconscious.


Funny story. When I was drunk last year, I managed to SOMEHOW break my other lamp. I was proper gutted because I loved that lamp, and it’s taken me SO LONG to finally replace it. (Yes I paid for it. I broke it, so I replace it) I saw some really cool ones, that were like a round ball and you could see the details of the light bulb, but they were like 15 quid and no offence, but it wasn’t worth it for me. So I got this one and it’s so pretty!!! I love it. (Haven’t actually used it yet. Cause guess who didn’t buy a bulb? ME!)

Aaaaand that’s my short Ikea haul! I also found my dream bed, that I can’t get cause I can only have a single at my mum’s (room’s too small!) But overall, it perked me up and wiped the moody look off my face for a few hours.

TGIF; SWEET PEACH COCKTAIL!

HAPPY FRIDAY! How happy are you that it's Friday?! The end of the working week and now we get to chill!Because it's Spring, I decided to find a Spring-inspired cocktail that I can enjoy during Spring/Summer. I found this cocktail from The Tipsy Bartender, and it's so easy to make! Here is the Sweet Peach:

And here's how to make this UH-MAY-ZING cocktail. 

You will need:

  • Ice
  • Peach Schnapps (90ml/9cl)
  • Orange Juice (90ml/9cl)
  • Granadine (a small drop)

Instructions:
  1. Add ice into both your cocktail shaker and the glass you're using for your cocktail (to the top for the glass)
  2. Add 9cl of orange juice into the cocktail shaker
  3. Add 9cl of peach schnapps into the cocktail shaker
  4. Add a drop (trust me, a drop) of grenadine into the shaker
  5. Close the lid onto the cocktail shaker tightly, and shake for around 30 seconds to a minute
  6. Unscrew the small lid from your cocktail shaker, and pour the cocktail into your glass of ice
  7. Enjoy!
And that's how you make a Sweet Peach! It's super easy and quick to make! I know it's good (even when I make it) because my dad even asks me to make him a glass. And if my cocktails are bad, trust me, he will tell me.

Let me know if you end up making a Sweet Peach cocktail either in the comments or Tweet me at @blnx3 or Instagram me at @blnx3.
