A Change of Plan

This weeks video is a little different to what I would normally upload on a Sunday as it is part of my weekly vlog series on my channel. However, I felt it was really important to share with  you all because of the massive  decision I have made this week about university and my life.

The oreginal plan was to study History and Geography at university in Ireland. However, over the course of the last few months, I have decided that I no longer want to study this at degree level. Therefore I am not going to university this year.

I have however, decided that I want to work in the media/film industry,  whether that is in marketing, or in editing of film. However, I don’t have any relevant qualifications to study this at degree level, so I have made the executive decision that I’m going to go back to college and study A Levels in courses that are now relevant to my chosen career path. I have an interview set up for college at the start of September.

It does mean that I will be staying in the Bournemouth area for a little while longer, but I think it is the right decision for me at this point in my life.

It has been a really tough week, but it has been life changing.

A Day out to the Dorset Heavy Horse Centre

IMG_6378IMG_6391IMG_6397IMG_6401IMG_6426IMG_6434In the summer of last year I went to the Heavy Horse Centre with my niece Lily and she told me it was her favourite place to go and has been begging me to go back ever since I took her in July 2015.

I kept my promise and last week I took Lily to the Heavy Horse Centre in Dorset and she had a wail of a time.

I used to go to the Heavy Horse Centre so much when I was younger and it was one of my favourite places to of when I was a child. I used to go there every school holiday that I visited my Grandma. However, the owners have changed so much of the centre since I was younger, however it is still as enjoyable as it was when I was younger. Some new features that they had this year that weren’t there last year is that they have built an indoor bouncy castle and 1950s style swings. They have also built a new playground for the children to play on.

Overall, even though the Heavy Horse Centre has so many other things to offer like driving a tractor, go carts and all the playground bits the main focus of the centre is the horses themselves. The Heavy Horse Centre is a rescue centre for shire horses. All the shire horses there have all had their fare share of stuff that has happened to them from being too big for the army, being sold for meat or having brain damage for being born backwards, however all the horses there are incredibly friendly and love their food that you can buy from the shop to feed them.

Both Lily and I had such a fun day out at the Dorset Heavy Horse Centre and I really recommend having a trip here if you are in the Verwood area as it is fun for all the family.

Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations Body Fondant Review

sunrise and zoella body fondant 006I love watching Zoella’s success on YouTube, yes I’m not the biggest fan of her content as for me its very similar and its like she is running out of ideas (in my opinion), however I am incredibly happy for her and I will always praise her success! When Zoella released the video stating that she had a new beauty range called Sweet Inspirations, I was excited, however I was also worried that I wasn’t going to be keen on the smell of the line. However, when I saw the packaging of the line I knew that I had to have it!

I chose the body fondant out of all of the products because it was something that I had never tried before and . The body fondant is a shimmer balm that gives you a sheen finish to your skin. It also carries a strong scent of the product so you wouldn’t have to put a perfume on when wearing this product.

Now, if I’m honest I don’t actually see what this product does. I have used it a number of times since I bought it and not found the resulrs to be what I expected. You have to put a lot of product on to actually get great results. However, once it was on I did feel like I had a bit of a shimmer to me, however, it wasn’t as noticeable as to what I was hoping.

So would I buy this product again? Probably not, but in the neat future I would like to try more of her range especially the fizz bars, they look so good!

What’s your favourite thing from the Zoella Sweet Inspirations Range?

Blueberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

For this weeks video I decided to do some baking. I recently got given ‘Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube Cake Book by Cupcake Jemma’. For those of you who don’t know Cupcake Jemma she has a YouTube channel and she also runs the cake shop Crumbs and Doilies in London and her cakes are delicious, so I had to try and make some! When I went to Crumbs and Doilies I had a blueberry cheesecake cupcake and it was to die for, so I had to try and make them at home!

I hope you enjoyed this video!

What’s in my Bag 2016?

I filmed this video roughly a year ago. It was where I tipped out my bag and showed you all the random crap I put in it!

Well this year I did it again except this time there was less crap in it. There was only 1 receipt! Normally there are a lot more!

Most of the stuff I have in my bag is the same as last years, however there are a couple of new things!

I hope you like this video!
