Little miss sunshine

For the past two weeks the weather has been absolutely lovely, which is a miracle because I am from Wales and we are not usually lucky with the weather. So I have been out enjoying this beautiful sunshine, i'm going to say a little bit about what i have been up to.

This is me and one of my friends Ashlee, we took this photo when we were on our way for a bbq at our friend lauren's house. The bbq was very nice and it was a lovely day :) The sunglasses my friend is wearing are from claires accessories £6, and mine are ray bans which I had on offer for £35. If you go online at the moment on the ray bans website there is a massive sale on in various colours and styles.

In college i am doing a health and social care course, as part of the course we had to take home electronic dolls for 1 night. So i decided to take the doll to the park whilst i had a sunbathe. My friends and me all put sunglasses on them and i thought this picture was pretty funny! The doll was hard work and woke me up 6 times in the night!, It has 100% made me see just how hard a baby is to look after haha! But it was a nice experience to take one home.

A few days ago it was a really nice day so we decided to take a trip down too porthcawl. It was a really lovely day. We went for a long walk along the seafront all the way down to the other end of the beach. We also went into the funfair, whilst in there we all acted like big kids and went on a lot of the rides. We even went on this big slide in the picture and on go karts. I have never been on go karts before and i have got to say, it was really funny and i would love to do it again. Although i must admit i am full of bruises from it, haha! I like this picture though because i had just got up from the slide and it looks like i had surfed down the slide (which of course i could never do).

This picture is of my baby sister Eve and my mothers friend's baby Adam. Yes they are called Adam and Eve, they are 5 months apart, Eve is the eldest, she is now 13 months old. They are so cute together and every time she sees him she shouts out "adam", its really sweet. This picture is taken on porthcawl beach.

I love this picture of Eve because of the way her curls look in it. She had a lovely day in porthcawl and this is one of her on the little train ride she went on.
There is a very big age gap between me and Eve, 17 years to be exact. She is the cutest baby sister in the world!

This jacuzzi is an early birthday present from my nan and grandpa. My birthday is next thursday but because i am having a jacuzzi party/bbq for my 18th we had to buy the jacuzzi early. Luckily for me the weather has been lush, so me and my boyfriend Andrew decided to take a dip. It was really nice. We have also bought a waterproff marquee to go over this jacuzzi which is now set up over it, incase of bad weather, so now the jacuzzi will be up permanantly. Its a lovely birthday present that im super happy with and hopefully the weather will remain nice so that i can use it lots in the summer. I'm hoping to have a few friends over to use it in the 6 weeks i have off college.

I am doing slimming world and as part of my weight loss i do a lot of exercise. With the weather being so nice me and my mothers best friend Natalie (who i am very close to and is practically family to me), decided to go on a bike ride. This happened because on saturday we went for a walk in the park, whilst we were there they were promoting bike riding and allowing us to go around the lake on the bikes, we loved it!! I then decided to dig out my bikes on saturday night and we went on a bike ride sunday morning. We went on a 6 mile bike ride, and we felt great afterwards! We are planning to do this from now on every weekend.
Does anyone else enjoy bike rides?

Thankyou for reading my blog. Has anyone else been doing something lovely in this weather? :)

My June wishlist

June is coming up, and since on the 7th June it will be my 18th birthday, I will be getting money I will hopefully be able to buy these things on my wishlist.

This bracelet is from debenhams, it is £8. I love it because of the colours and because i think that it will go with a lot of the summer outfits that i own.

This dress is in the sale in river island, it is £20 down from £35. I really hope to buy this because it is different from any of the other dresses that i own. I own lots of dresses so this would be another one to add to my collection. I could also wear this dress with the bracelet above, and with my denim jacket that i purchased a few weeks back.

These sun glasses are from river island they are £10. I love the aztec pattern on them. They will be a perfecct accessorie for me to wear this summer. I need to purchase a new pair of sunglasses, as most of mine have scratches on or have broken.

I went to watch the descendants earlier this year in the cinema. I thought it was a really good film. It was about a man who's wife was involved in a boating accident and goes into a coma, so he is left to bring up his two teenage daughters as his wife is in hospital. It is a very touching film, but i thoroughly enjoyed it and would really recommend someone to watch it. I would rate this film 8/10. This film is available on amazon for £11.99, but because it is new out im sure that in a couple of weeks time that price will come down.

Another thing that I am hoping to buy is a new pair of vans. These vans are £45 from schuh. I bought a pair of vans 3 months ago from the same shop in a bright blue colour. I wear them all the time, they are really comfy and i wear them with pretty much everything.

I am also hoping to purchase a pair of trainers for all the exercise that i take part in. I do zumba, walking, cycling, aerobics and dance lessons. I have been wearing my converse to do all these activities but i will be looking for a pair of proper trainers this month to wear. I will do a post on slimming world and exercise soon.

Thankyou for reading!!

My first post on my holiday to spain.

Hello my name is Abbie welcome to my blog. I thought i would start off my blog by doing a lifestyle post of my recent holiday to spain. I also plan to do posts on beauty, fashion and more lifestyle posts.

Three weeks ago I went on holiday to Benalmadena in Spain. I went there for a week, it was really fun.I stayed in a first choice holiday village all inclusive hotel, the hotel was also lovely. I went on holiday with my mother, my step father, my baby sister, my boyfriend my nan and my grandpa. It was a really nice family holiday.

On the day before we left Spain, my family suprised me by booking me into a marina to spend an hour in the water dolphins. In the water i got to teach them tricks, learn all about the dolphins and which part of the world they were from, stroke them, and have my photo taken with them. It was one of the best experiences of my life. The dolphins were all so intelligent and such loving animals. If anyone does have the opportunity to do something like this, I highly recommend it.

In the marina where i went to see the dolphins, there were also other animals, there were sea lions and penguins. My sister loved going in to see the penguins, She was amazed by them.

This is my boyfriend Andrew. In this picture we are in the VIP pool area of the hotel that we stayed in. We got to stay in this VIP area for the whole day and with it we had access to our own pool, 2 rubber rings, 4 jacuzzi beds, proper 4 poster beds to sunbathe on and a free bottle of champagne. It cost us 10 euros each to stay there for the whole day. It was a lovely day and we really enjoyed having our own little private part of the hotel.

This photo is taken in sealife. We went to sealife because whilst we were on holiday my baby sister Eve turned 1. In this picture my boyfriend is standing under the shark tank, the shark that is above him in the tank was in fact asleep. It was a cool place to look around. All the tanks had some interesting information about all the fish written on them.
This picture is off my gorgeous baby sister Eve. It was taken on the day after her 1st birthday. We were in a little village just outside of benalmadna for the day.
She enjoyed being on holidays, she loved the sun, we took her into the outside pool lots of times and she really enjoyed it.

This picture was taken at night in benalmadna.
We went for a meal and went into a bar that was fully made of ice. In the bar we got given big wooly blankets to go inside.
It was so interesting to see how literally everything inside the bar was made out of ice.
Behind us in the picture are big yacht's that apparantly some celebrities own, the picture was taken at benalmadena harbour. It was a lovely night.

Thankyou for reading.
