London Nightlife

 

I think that many people have a bit of a fear of walking around London at night, that it's dangerous (apparently especially for girls/women) and if I'm honest I used to be afraid. But now I actually prefer night time and there are several things that I plan to do in the city in the coming months. London looks so nice at night, with the skyscrapers lit up and the strange mix of old and new architecture visible from so many spots. One for the things I've really wanted to do for a few months is eat at a rooftop restaurant in Central London so that I can sit back, eat and take in the sights. In fact, I really want to explore new experiences, new eateries and dine with good company and watch the autumn days disappear into winter.

1. The Sky Garden
2. The Doodle Bar
3. Cahoots
4. The Basement Galley
5. OXO Brasserie

I feel as though I should be taking more opportunities to enjoy living in one of the best cities in the world, to take more chances to see things, do things and enjoy things. I want to spend more time with friends, the friends who stick by you through the good times and the bad; I intend to enjoy life more, enjoy doing things. It's better to live and not just exist and so I'm taking small steps to really try and live my life. I've spent so much of this year being desperately unhappy that I want to keep pushing for my happiness and keep feeling truly alive. If anyone has any suggestions for things to do, let me know in the comments :)

Things to be grateful for

 

As many of you will have likely guessed by now, I spend a lot of my time dwelling on the more negative aspects of my life; today I'm trying to challenge this and spend time thinking about the positive parts, difficult as it might be. I have several things that I should be more grateful for and I definitely take for granted sometimes. My Friends are not appreciated nearly enough at times, and I definitely want to spend more time with them. I don't have the largest group of friends, but the ones that I have are so incredibly supportive of me and I need to return that favour more as friendships are about giving and receiving. I have a tendency to overlook my Family a lot of the time too, when actually I do really enjoy their support and company. They've given me a place to live in since I was born and look after me when I need it, which I've needed a lot the last few months, more than I'd ever admit to them but I've appreciated them more since I've got older.

I have the most amazing boyfriend, who literally is the rock I need. There for me whenever and wherever, I don't know where I would be or what state I would be in without him and his constant support. I don't show my appreciation often enough compared to what he does for me and I'm definitely going to change that. He keeps me levelheaded. As much as I have a love/hate relationship with work, I also find that it helps me have a routine, as well as the more obvious monetary gain. Some days I love it, I love who I work with and feel really happy to be a part of such a good team and they're the parts that I need to remember and focus on.

Mistakes are also something to be thankful for, even if they make you feel like you're absolutely worthless. It's so important to remember that making mistakes actually shapes you as a person, they encourage you to grow in wisdom and confidence and I want to always learn from my mistakes for as long as I can. They're a part of humanity, a part of life. I'm thankful to be alive, to have the chance to enjoy all of life's moments and surprises. Even if it's not all #lifegoals or #relationshipgoals etc., life is life and not something that should be valued by a hashtag or how many likes you receive. Life is precious and not everyone is as lucky as I am and I need to remember that.

Let's be honest


 


So, with reference to the title of this post, 'let's be honest'; I have a problem with alcohol. Not with others drinking around me, I don't have a problem with it existing and I don't rely on it or feel that it's necessary to drink at parties or socially in general. But I, personally have a problem with it. I have a problem with the way that it makes me feel and the way that it makes me behave. Particularly when I was younger, I definitely felt the pressure to conform to the 'teenage binge drinker' stereotype and I feel that I did just that. I can't handle drink well, if I drank more than 2 of anything I would feel like absolute shit and either 1. not remember much and be excruciatingly irritating and/or hyper active or 2. Be a manic depressive mess, screaming and crying, unable to cope.

As I've got older the second option has become more and more apparent and to be honest it scares me a little; they always say drunken actions are sober thoughts, which then begs the question is my lack of coping when drunk the harsh reality of my current underlying state of mind? At a friends 21st I spent about 3 hours crying to another friend about all kinds of things, work, family, life in general. I don't even remember it, I was told about it after and that what's even more worrying. What should've been a lovely evening with friends became an absolute blur and I suspect ruined much of the night. I don't want to be this uncontrollable trainwreck, I want to be able to enjoy myself and be good company.

More recently, partly decided from a suggestion made by my boyfriend, I'm not going sober but I'm not actively drinking unless its social, and even then I'm drinking no more than one, purely as a precaution. I'm learnt that my mental health is more important than trying to be social, or seemly becoming this expected persona; my severe anxiety definitely increases tenfold when I drink and so my sober, level headed self knows that if I want to feel comfortable and able to manage a social situation then drinking alcohol is not the best idea. If I have anxiety at the best of times, then alcohol is not going to be a solution, I don't find it empowers me or makes me feel more confident, in fact it makes me feel the opposite.

An old school friend shared an article from the Guardian about a week ago and it's contents resonated with me very much; about how "Young Britons living in 'suspended adulthood'", from my own perspective I would say that the findings, such as under 30s, particularly females struggling with self confidence and mental health issues are very real in society. Myself as an example, I definitely fit the profile mentioned in the article. It ties in well with my reasons for being careful around alcohol; right now mental health, the pressures of young adult life are affecting many potential experiences that could be benefitted by social situations. However, I have learnt that I don't need to indulge in copious amounts of alcohol to improve experiences, in fact, alcohol has a negative effect. So, as a twenty something slowly pushing through life, I can say. I am finally learning to control my alcohol intake I'm happy about it.

A month in instagram - September


 

 

 

 


This year seems to be disappearing... I have no idea how it's the end of September already. Part of me likes it, because I love autumn and winter and I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year. I've had a nice month, spent a lot of time with my love and walked my dog so much that I have too many photos of pretty sunsets. I was bought flowers twice and believe me, they smell and look so nice, makes me happy. I spent some time with my nephews for the first time in ages and I really enjoyed their company. I've done nothing especially interesting or overly amazing, but all of the little things are what makes life whole for me. 

I've began to see the beauty in every life, the unimportant moments and the cityscapes that surround where I live. After a rough few months during this year it's been great to start finally feeling able to see beautiful things, to enjoy what I see and what I do, even if it's something most would find 'boring', like a dog walk or a quiet meal. I've enjoyed a rare few meals out and about, and showed some touristy landmarks to my boyfriend who isn't British. It was nice seeing London from a different perspective and after taking my nephews on a boat, I would say I really want to explore London and the world more, I'd like to experience more things.

Beauty Favourites - September

 

1. Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara - £11.99
2. Rimmel Wake Me Up Radience BB Cream (Very Light) - £7.99
3. L'Oreal Paris True Match Le Crayon Concealer - £6.99
4. Sleek Brow Kit (Light) - £8.99
5. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact (Rose) - £30.50
6. Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick (965 Siren in Scarlet) - £6.99

A few months ago I used to literally cover my face in make up, to the extent that I would spend so much time and money on it and I felt disgusting if I didn't wear it. Now I wear much less and even leave my house and sometimes work without make up, which is a huge achievement for me (as pathetic as that sounds) but the products above are what I really feel are value for money; they last all day without reapplication, the lipstick survives eating and drinking and concealer and mascara just gives my natural face a little lift. Each of these products improves my confidence slightly, without making my face look caked in make up, which is why I've been loving them this month.

Monthly Reflections #2

 

On a serious note... I have no idea where this month is disappearing?! It's suddenly turned colder and autumn is definitely coming into full swing, but I like it. I love autumn and wearing jeans and boots and warm clothes. Literally I feel like achieved nothing at all this year, but in reality I've actually achieved a lot personally. Ever so slowly I'm learning to be more positive and far less negative. I'm learning to enjoy the small things, like taking my dog for a walk or listening to music on the bus on the way to work. Photography has become an essential part of my life and a way of releasing creativity, as well as enjoying the world around me. I've realised that having a hobby, a distraction, helps me to keep perspective during harder times.

I'm in a fantastic relationship with the most amazing and supportive person, who puts up with all of my shit (somehow) and I need to be more appreciative of the time that we spend together. I've learnt that it's not always the length of time you've been a couple but how much someone means to you that's important. I've stopped counting months and days and instead am enjoying all of the moments, however small. Giggles on the bus or sending each other stupid snapchats, waking up to nice texts are what makes the time special. I feel like the months are going faster now because I'm starting to feel a little better.

I think it's time I went to a doctor and spoke about my negative feelings, how I'm almost always down when I should be feeling fine. I want to tackle my issues with anxiety and try to (embrace?) (almost?) that I have a mental illness, something is not always fixed in a matter of minutes or hours, even days, weeks or months are not enough. I've struggled for literally years (if I'm honest around thirteen years) and I feel that now is the time to finally admit it. I'm wondering if I need to see a therapist, but maybe the answer is confide in the people around me. No, I don't have thousands of friends but I can name several who would listen and definitely support me, and for that I should be more grateful.

So, yes this months reflections have been a little strange, a little confusing, perhaps. But I guess that's also a reflection on myself, as I'm a little strange, a little confusing. I'm a female in my early twenties with so many things to understand, to work through. I'm twenty three, have no idea what I'm doing with my life, or what I want to do with it and I think that's ok. Everything in my life is going ok, so I need to learn to live in the now, rather than living for the 'future' that I dreamt up for myself whilst I was around eighteen years old. So many things have changed in those five years and so my outlook needs to change to reflect that. Nothing in life is set in stone.

Favourite Instagrammers - September

Hello again! As you will definitely know by now, I am what many would call a complete Instagram addict, to the point where I scroll through the home page many times per day, just to ensure that I've seen literally everything that I can in from that day. I follow people that I know and that I don't, from all areas across the world. Every month I follow a few more people that catch my eye and I take a liking to. I've always liked seeing how other people live and their passions and instagram is a fantastic way to explore others visually. All of the images below are from a simple Instagram google image search, the usernames are detailed below the images.


 

katyannestuart

I really love Katy's photographic style and her Instagram is full of lovely autumnal coloured views of flowers, horses and herself. Her vibrant red hair makes her stand out, especially against the soft greens of the landscape. She definitely has a passion for florals, animals and fashion as well as anything in between. Plus, her wedding photos look so nice, complete with a dog and a beautiful river landscape. She's one of the people I followed recently but I really like seeing her posts.


 

sarah_nunn

Her love for travelling is what made me follow her, her effortless style and love for the beauty found in new places and the little things. I liked how when she's exploring she documents even the smallest of details, whether that is tiled or mosaic flooring, or simply landscape views of cliffs and the sea they're always nicely framed and make me want to travel more often. She also posts photos of food and drink, even basics like coffee somehow look super interesting and that's why I like her posts so much, the small moments are just as important as huge moments.


 

girlandcloset

A lovely lady living in Vancouver, her posts are always very foresty and rather whimsical, whether intentionally or not. Soft autumnal lighting and deep hazy sunshine makes her posts photographically so pleasing to see. This month I've really been loving her posts because she's definitely in tune with the Sedona, going pumpkin picking and documenting leafy woodland walks. Her love of nature really shines through in all of posts, even her outfit posts are taken outside and embracing the changing seasons wearing boots, jeans and comfy cardigans; Veronika is more than worth a follow.


 

littlevoiceblog

I love how Georgia documents all parts of her life, from new house keys, moving cities for university, her pets and her travels. Her posts are often pretty minimalist, with close ups of coffee cups, travel cards and books. That said, I like that she captures things from an unusual perspective; it's nice to see how other people see things. Her views of exterior architecture are both interesting and photographically beautiful, regardless of their unconventional framing techniques. Her captions to the images are always both sensitive and direct to the point, which sometimes are more interesting than the images themselves and the reason why I followed her this month.


 

shotfromthestreet

I recently followed Lizzy, and I don't regret it at all, I liked how she showcases both herself and her taste in fashion using the city as a canvas. However what I really liked is that the captions to her images, she talks about life, for example what books she's reading, her life and her travels, not only fashion. Her personal style is fairly androgynous but somehow classics and co-ordinates well with her 'Instagram theme'. Usually I'm not a fan of accounts with all images of the self but she's definitely made an exception to the rule.

Tall Ships Festival @ Sail Royal Greenwich

 

Last Sunday my two nephews, mama and I went on along the River Thames on a boat, as part of a 'river cruise', complete with real sailors directing the ship along the course of the river. Starting from Woolwich Arsenal Pier and moving along towards the Royal Greenwich Heritage Centre, it was a really incredible way to see the sights of my hometown. My nephews, aged 12 and 14 were enjoying themselves, eating from canapés and drinking cokes frim glass bottles whilst looking out over the river. It was a rather nostalgic experience in some ways; my puppy Star, who died two years ago loved watching the ships sail along the river during the festival and so it was a reminder of her, in a way. As well as that, as we passed Silvertown docks we talked about my grandfather who worked there and how one of my nephews was named after him as he died when I was young.

In all honesty the river is a fantastic way to see all areas of the city; from Poplar Rowing Club, Silvertown Docks, the Emirates Cable Car and the o2 arena, there are so many different things to see. One thing that I noticed is how the old and new architecture mixes in together, from Stuart Palaces, 1900s factories and docks to millenium aged flats and oddly-shaped houses. It was a really nice experience to see the city from a traditional boat rather than ferry as it was slower and so you had more time to take the views in fully. My nephews seemed to really enjoy themselves, one was a bit hyperactive and desperate to see and do everything all at once, and the other was quite solemn, staring intently at different things and really concentrating. During the tip I also found out that the youngest one is very keen on photography and we definitely bonded over that. These river cruises are only available for a short time and if you can go, you should. Mama and I agreed afterward that we wished we had booked one of the fireworks evening cruises, but with kids the daytime version was probably the safest.

I don't wear perfume every day, but whenever I want to feel better about myself or just lift my mood a little I spritz some on and feel amazing. My favourite scents for myself are quite feminine, floral scents with hints of vanilla, fairly summery scents actually. I adore the Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' and the Vera Wang 'Princess' ranges, I like the way the scents are similar but suit different moods and occasions... Plus they're such pretty bottles 😍

I've avidly listened to music since I received my first ever iPod for my thirteenth birthday, a black 2gb 1st generation iPod nano. Eventually it as replaced as it was one of the models with some battery exploding problem. Shame, because I loved it to pieces. Prior to having an iPod th was always music playing in my house, so I grew up listening to Queen from my nana, the Spice Girls from my cousin, Blur and Radiohead from my mama and Placebo from my aunt. Judging by those slightly random and completely different tastes, it's hardly a surprise that my music taste is so extensive.

I literally listen to so many different genres and artists, for example Little Mix, Avenged Sevenfold and Marika Hackman. The music that I listen to definitely reflects the mood that I'm in at that time. Many of the albums listed above are old favourites that I still listen to on a regular basis and I will always love. I think that you always know when you really love an album as you can listen to it from start to finish without any breaks. If I hear any songs from any of these albums I always know all of the words, even if I haven't heard them for a while.

For me personally, each of these albums reminds me of a period of time during my life and when I hear the songs from it, its almost as if I'm going back in time to those memories whether they're good or bad. What are your favourite songs or albums? Let me know in the comments :)

I love Ellie Goulding's ethereal voice; it's really relaxing to listen to these kinds of songs when you're on a bus or train or on the way home after a hard day at work.

The important things in life

 

I apologise in advance for what will likely be a strange topic to talk about so openly, but I feel like I want to talk about it, so here we are. I've spent most of the past seven years evaluating, reflecting and rethinking every little thing and ultimately, my conclusion was a consistent strive for happiness. During my teen years I assumed that pleasing others, for example actually attending school and passing exams, going to university would make me feel fulfilled and happy. I spent most of the past seven years more or less desperately unhappy, feeling isolated and alone.

I suppose that the bottom line was that I was looking for fulfillment in the wrong places; looking for friendships and craving a 'best friend', which to be honest I've never really felt like I've had. I was always exponentially jealous of anyone I saw having a best friend and craved that for myself. Alongside that, I never had a bursting at the seams kind of friendship group, and moving schools, living far away from others meant that I was a bit shit at keeping friendships. I hated sixth form and I hated university. I had a couple of shit relationships, one of which was so fucking demoralising to the point that I felt completely worthless.

Once I stopped looking for happiness and felt, I suppose you could say untroubled by the intense feelings of aloneness I somehow found happiness. I realised that I don't need millions of friends to make me happy. I have a handful of friends, and that handful make me happy whenever I'm surrounded by their company; be that a text, or a meal at a cheap as can be in a dodgy suburban pub. My best friend I found in someone I never looked for and on the surface have absolutely nothing in common with and yet we literally 'click', to the extent that I know I have found my forever friend. You'll always know the difference because of the people that look after you when you're down and celebrate with you when you're up are the ones that truly care and Amanda is the one friend I can call and know I'll always have support from, however terrible the situation I've landed myself into feels.

I've also found the one relationship where I'm slowly learning my worth. That it shouldn't be all give, you need to take as well. I'm actually an incredibly slow learner. I'm having to learn to listen and not just talk, to give love and receive. That having sex is actually about love and that you want that person, you want a connection with a person physically and mentally. Yes, I'm still having bad days or weeks (that's the side effect of having mental health problems, unfortunately) but it feels like slowly, but surely my life is getting better. They always say you find love when you're not looking and I would say that's true. Piotr has given me and love and stability that I never thought I would feel and his company makes me feel whole.

So the one thing that I've finally learnt is that you should never give up on life, never give up on the hope that one day everything will finally fall into place. Many things will go wrong on the way and if you hit the bottom then the only positive outlook is that 'the only way is up' and I've literally lived that to know that's true. I have absolutely no clue where my life is going but that's ok. I have two people who I can rely on every step of the way for support and that's all I need :)


Favourite Blogs! - September

Hello again :)
It feels like literally every month I find more blogs to enjoy and this month I've already found several that I've found really enjoyable to read, to the extent that I've been going back over their old posts as well as new. All of the images belong to the blog owners below and were found using a simple google search.

 


I love her style so much, and knowing that the majority of her Wardbrobe is purchased from affordable charity shops such as Oxfam makes it even better as it makes me feel like I can afford to look that nice too! Definitely a niche fashion blogger, I really love her style and the way she photographs her outfits is really lovely as well. Like me, she's also an Instagram addict and her posts representing that are enjoyable to read as they're a recap of what she's done recently which I like.

 

One of my more recent favourites, Rebecca's blog has become a fast favourite of mine; I literally adore everything about it... The style, her personal style and the photography is just amazing. 'An American living in Northern Ireland' is her tagline and sums up her blog entirely. As Autumn (my favourite season) is coming, her blog is great as the colours of her photographs and her personal style is very autumnal and so a fantastic inspiration for cooler weather dressing.

 


Another newer favourite of mine, Chloe often tackles some fairly unusual topics for bloggers, such as contraception, things that make you happy and that its ok to have no idea what to do with yourself or your life. She's really down to earth and relatable, as I enjoy reading about topics such as feminism and weight as they're things that many women struggle with. As a bonus, her blog looks so aesthetically pretty and her personal style posts are always interesting too.

 

Catherine's blog leaves a lot to be desired; as a lover of all things pretty myself, I love her homeware hauls and room/house DIYs and renovations. I love her vintage country kitsch style and her love of cute tea dresses matches mine so her blog was obviously going to become a favourite! She's so crafty, and her little handmade teddy bears are the cutest. Alongside home and fashion, she does talk about lifestyle and working on happiness was an interesting read.

 


Laura's posts are very lifestyle orientated, with a clear interest in travel, beauty and personal style. As she lives in London (so do I) it's nice to see places that are familiar to me and see how her colourful outfits contrast against the grey buildings and streets. Her blog has an explorative feel, as though she is constantly on the lookout for new discoveries. Her most recent posts from Greece look so nice and really make you want to travel more.

My Travel Bucket List - UK

 


St Ives, Cornwall

I've always wanted to visit St. Ives for a number of reasons, but the main reason being that I love going to galleries and museums and there are many to visit such as  the Tate, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. However I love the peaceful feel of the English countryside and Cornwall is a seaside town surrounding by breathtaking views and the local fishing ports. There are so many beaches, coastal paths and harbours to explore, alongside seals and other wildlife. I'm also interested in visiting the local potteries and a boat or ghost tour. There's something incredibly relaxing about spending time in rural landscapes and this is one of the most popular tourist destinations for a reason.

Lyme Regis, Dorset

Having spent many summer holidays here as a child, I would absolutely love to revisit Lyme Regis as an adult. There are literally so many sights to take in, including the Jurassic Coast, Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, the Cobb Harbour and the Town Mill, alongside many beaches. It's the best feeling to wake up to the sounds of the sea slapping against the rocks of the beaches. It's probably the most famous place in the UK for fossil finds due it's extensively beautiful coastline. It's also been written about by many novelists, including Jane Austen and even boasts a Banksy artwork; it has been described as 'The Pearl of Dorset' due to its picturesque sea views that are visible from all areas of the town.

Ventnor, Isle of Wight

Some of the best memories I have from university is spending a summer on the island with a friend and so I've got some really lovely memories that I would like to revisit. Ventnor is a primarily a seaside resort and essentially is built upon cliffs and hills to the side of the sea. Home to a number of beaches, it also boasts of converted Victorians baths, a harbour, a bandstand and Ventnor Park and Botanic Gardens. Ventnor was one of the nicest places I visited due to spending a day at Steephill Cove, a really soothing beach. More or less empty, it was rocky and sandy with privacy to just enjoy the views of the sea.

Portmeirion, North Wales

A tourist village designed to look like an Italian village, it's another place that I went to as a child and would like to revisit. It's got some lovely quirky architecture, alongside ornamental gardens and breathtaking views from the seafront. It's surrounded by cafés, restaurants, spas and quaint little cottages set sgainst cobbled streets. There's a woodland and Edwardian garden ready to explore, as well as a gothic castle, railway and pottery. Overall there are many things to do in this scenic place.

Wiltshire, England

The main reason for my want to visit Wiltshire is to see Stonehenge; however there are many other sights to see in the county including Avebury neolithic stone circle, Stourhead Gardens, Museum of the Great Western Railway, Lacock Abbey, Salisbury Cathedral and Nunney Castle. I've always loved history, art and architecture and there's so much to see in this area. I'm sure its a perfect place to walk and enjoy the landscape.

Edinburgh, Scotland

As the capital, its no surprise that there are so many things to do in Edinburgh, such as visiting the Castle, Holyrood Palace, Arthur's Seat, Scottish National Gallery, Royal Botanic Gardens, St Giles' Cathedral, Museum of Childhood, National War Museum and Edinburgh Zoo. I've always wanted to visit Scotland because of my godson being Scottish and lived there for several years now. I want to see the culture and the architecture of Scotland as well as compare the city life there.
