Meeting Busted ♥

Tuesday, 30 August 2016

Busted were the first ever band I liked growing up. Sure, I liked Britney Spears like most other girls my age but Busted were my first true love (Mcfly took over pretty soon but Busted will always be up there at the top).

When me and my best friend Hollie saw they were reforming with Charlie we HAD to get tickets. We missed out on the first two dates but luckily they added a 3rd Manchester date and we managed to get amazing tickets right next to the stage, 5 rows back. In the mean time, I was hatching a plan with Hollie's boyfriend and on her birthday she was presented with an email that stated we were going to be meeting Busted! Myself and her boyfriend had paid for meet and greet tickets and I was SO excited! We have met Busted before very briefly when we were 12 and we waiting outside Blackpool Tower for them and James signed my book and gave me a hug. We later met Matt and were in the paper with him when he did a single signing when he went solo (Read: here).

Deciding to really enjoy ourselves, we booked to stay at the Lowry hotel for the night through and got a deluxe double bedroom for £140. I travelled to Blackpool and stayed over at Hollie's the night before so we could have an extra girly night and make a weekend of it.

Fitness: My New Challenge ♥

Monday, 4 July 2016

Health and Fitness. It's everywhere at the moment isn't it? And so it should be.
Growing up I was an extremely active child, I loved P.E at school and took part in lots of different hobbies including; Gymnastics, Swimming, Horse Riding, Ice Skating, Ballet, Modern Dancing... When we moved from Blackpool to Preston, I gave up all of my classes and just took to hanging around with friends out and about but still enjoyed doing sports at school.
I also ate well and rarely had 'rubbish food'. My mum always tells of the time she took me shopping and said I could choose anything I wanted for tea, thinking I'd choose a pizza or something. I ended up choosing a Jacket Potato with Tuna and an apple.

Competition Win: Trip to Scarborough ♥

Friday, 10 June 2016

I was extremely lucky just before Christmas to win a Twitter competition which was a night in a Honeymoon Suite in The Ox Pasture Hall Hotel. This included Afternoon Tea, Evening Meal and Breakfast.
'Ox Pasture Hall country house hotel is privately owned and recognised as the best of the Scarborough hotels and one of the finest luxury hotels in Yorkshire.
Located near Scarborough in the historic North Yorkshire Moors, the hotel is close to the sea and in easy reach of Filey, Whitby, Helmsley and York.
Ox Pasture Hall is set in seventeen acres of its own picturesque grounds and offers a haven for peace and respite from the frantic pace of modern day life, yet the busy seaside resort of Scarborough is only a couple of miles away. 
Here you can enjoy the heather filled moors, scenic dales and the spectacular heritage coastline, all within a few miles of this superb Scarborough hotel.'
This gorgeous hotel is located just a 5 minute drive from my Grandma's so we decided to go a day earlier and stay with her for a night so we could spend some more time there. The day we arrived we headed into Scarborough as there's a lovely fudge shop I know of (I lived in Scarborough for 6 months a few years ago) and we wanted to get some fudge to take home with us. We also enjoyed some yummy fish and chips and a huge ice cream!
