Hello guys and in today's post I am going to run down one of my recent trips to the big smoke - London. 

London. A place of dreams, history, delicious food, wonderful shopping and glorious views. London is a place I love and consider it my second home.

London is a place I visit every year without fail and this because most of my family are from the capital and I have been able to go endless amount of times which  love. This year was a far from normal as this was the first time I was going to London on my own which was daunting to say the least. What made this years trip to London different is that a good friend of mine, George, whom I've known for almost fifteen years studies Politics at Westminster University and kindly invited me to stay for a few days and get an outlook of London life through a students pair of eyes which was ever so exciting.

We keep in contact and talk almost every week which is important because it's special to me to keep in contact with old friends. For a few months now we discussed the idea of me coming up to London and staying a few days to experience Uni life in it's fullest and see the world George now lives in.

The Everyday Blogger Day Out & Travel Essentials

Wednesday, 11 February 2015

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog and in today's post I am going to run down some of the essentials every blogger should have with them whether they're on a day out with friends or preparing to travel the world.

So without further or do here are my Travel and Day Out essentials for the blogger next door.

Headphones are a necessity whether you're travelling the world or getting a bus to your local high street and this is why I recommend this vital gadget for you to have with you this year.

There are a ton of headphones on the market but which ones perfect for you?

If you're an iPhone/iPod user then you're used to your average Apple headphones but move them aside and grab yourself the Beats Solo HD - I recently was given these Matte Black wonders for Christmas and they've been nothing but wonderful. 

Beats are one of the biggest or the biggest headphone manufacturer in the world with tons of people joining the bandwagon to grab a pair and jam out to their favourite music.

I recommend the Solo HD because they are lightweight headphones that come in a variety of colours. You can chose from a range or colours in which I chose black (predictable) but they deliver the most amazing sound to the point you could be lip synching to Kanye West with someone walking in without you realising  - been there, done that. 

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Tuesday, 10 February 2015

Hello you - after a short hiatus I'm back, I can't believe it's been a week since I've posted, how unlikely of me. I've been in London for a few days but I am back in the not so sunny Somerset to post daily for you.

In today's post I have been nominated by my good friend Jessie of to do the Very Inspiring Blogger Award which some of you may have judged from the title.

This post requires me to write seven facts about myself in which you will get to know me that little bit more. I will also be tagging some of my favourite fellow bloggers to do the same, so without further or do here are some little facts about me.

Fact Number One:
If you didn't already know I have an undying love for a programme called Big Brother. No matter how many times I tell someone or write it down I can never get across the unconditional love I have for this specific programme - some people are in a Harry Potter fandom, but this is my fandom and the only one I have ever joined. 

I have been following the programme since a very early age and have watched every series (even the very first on YouTube as I was only five when this programme initially started). Now I'm not just an average viewer, I'm a hardcore fan without a serious amount of passion for the programme, the people, the producers, the set and everything else.

The Grazebox

Wednesday, 4 February 2015

In today's post I am going to be talking about my latest discovery - The Grazebox. Now us bloggers have probably all heard of the grazebox whether it being aired as an advert on TV, YouTubers endorsing the brand or bloggers insightful posts about them.

Now if you don't know what the Grazebox is then have you been doing a Patrick Star and living beneath a rock - I hope not. Graze is a online food manufacture than encourages every day people by eating new and innovative snacks delivered through the post (cool right?).

Setting up your Grazebox is simple as pie, I signed up using my good friend, Jessie's friend code which allowed me to get my first, fifth and tenth box free which was great and you go through a few about you steps, in put your bank details and there you go, the site is yours, yours for you to browse through yummy looking snacks that you'd like to see in your box.

The great thing about Graze is that it offers almost everything - every snack you could possibly think of and more... and by more I mean some that you might not of thought of eating, and don't worry if you have allergies or you're a vegetarian then they cater to you too (how welcoming of them). 

Like I said, Graze has a variety of foods for you to choose from. You go through different categories of food and chose whether you want to bin the item, like the item, love the item or send it soon. I recommend choosing "love the item" on some of your personal favourites therefore there's a better chance of those delicious goodies being in your box.

The Bomber Jacket | Burtons

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

In today's post I am going to talk about one of my latest purchases - the ever so stylish and on trend bomber jacket from Burtons.

Recently with two of my good friends I visited and took a wander around Cabot Circus which is my local shopping centre in which I was looking for new additions for my wardrobe - although I should be saving, my bad. 

The shopping trip was a weird one - nonetheless a great one. I decided to try something new and venture into new stores that I never really tend to browse in and see if I could find anything that I liked, which I ended up doing.

Judging by the title you will realise that Burtons was one of the many stores I visited. Burtons is a shop that stores mens clothing that is usually suitable for the twelve year old boy who is trying to find his style and older men trying to look ever so hip and on trend. However Burtons had some really nice new pieces in that I was contemplating buying which really surprised me as I tend to shop in Topman, Urban Outfitters and All Saints therefore it made a nice change and refreshing to see something new.

Whilst waiting for my friends to finish looking through Miss Selfridge I browsed some of the new stock of Burtons in which I found something I had been after for ages - the bomber jacket. The bomber jacket is this seasons Spring essential for all men, the fleece lined non-collared jacket is doing the rounds around fashion stores and is perfect for every on trend males wardrobe - including me.

YouTube a site that was originally a place for people to store their videos: for example a place for you to show the world what you're cat was doing they you found endlessly amusing or for you to store that video you created in your bedroom signing along to Airplanes by B.o.B and Hayley Williams, good examples I know.

But we live in a world where social media is becoming one of the most important things in our lives: everyday people are so consumed like me by others on these so called sites. 

YouTube has not only been a place for you to watch endless cat videos or your favourite musicians music videos but it's now a place where we can watch we what call - YouTubers. The YouTuber is just like me and you, the average person documenting their lives online with a video camera - sounds crazy right? But we've all watched a YouTuber whether you realise it or not.

Alongside blogging, YouTube and YouTubers are something I've been passionate for since I was eleven and I was so consumed by watching people I love on a weekly basis. 

Successful YouTubers such as Zoella, Pointless Blog, Sprinkle of Glitter were all people I discovered prior to the fame they have now: believe it or not I was a loyal viewer since 2011 and it's crazy to see their journey they've been on along with other notorious YouTubers. 

You're probably thinking where are you going with this blog post? But I have been going back and forth on the idea of starting a YouTube channel for almost a few months now. YouTubers are people I idolise and to even achieve half of things they're doing is beyond my wildest dreams.

The Groovy Tracklist | Spotify

Sunday, 1 February 2015

February the first already? I know it's cliche to say and we are only a month in but seriously
where is time going already?

Now let's forget that me worrying that times going fast and I'm getting older each and every day. It's a new month which means I want I want to introduce you to a new playlist to get your February live and kicking (subtle reference to a 90's show there).

If you didn't already know, I have a very versatile music taste and accept listening to all genres of music without a care and most recently I have been travelling back to my roots and listening to the old funky R&B and Pop (damn I hate using the term pop) music I grew up with and create a playlist for you to listen to it and even find that song you've been searching for, for months. (trust it's a much cooler playlist than I'm making it sound).
