Advice For First Year University Students


Hey everyone, 

First of congratulations to all of you who got into university. So seeing as last week was A level results day and the majority of the UK students will have found out if they got there place in university, I thought this post would be appropriate to upload. Also seeing as I have completed my first year of university which you can read my experience here, I thought it would be a great time to do my advice post for the incoming freshers. These are things I wish I had done or had done and recommend doing so as a first year student. The majority of these will be applicable to every year but as a first year it's important to start doing these in order for it to become routine by third year which is when it really counts.

Get Involved

Get involved in university life especially if your not living on campus. I highly recommend joining a team, club or society or find some other way to get involved. If your not living on campus like me then you won't have the head start of being involved in university life like they do so make an effort to get involved. I couldn't get involved due to me working part time 5-9 when a lot of the meetings happened but if I could of I would. It's a great way to make some friends outside your course and adds to the university experience.

Attend all Lectures 

Now you may think well first year dosent count so I don't need to go to all of the lectures, well your wrong. Don't get me wrong there may be one or two lectures which don't seem important I had some on how to revise which I never went to as I already had a system that worked for me.

Please don't make the same mistake that I did and miss loads of lectures as you will realise how important it is to attend when doing your coursework or exams. I went to around 4 of my economics lectures out of like 12+, I then realised when it came to my exams that I had a lot to learn. Luckily enough I revised it enough to pass but still attend at least 90% of your lectures as you will notice the difference I promise you.

Don't leave coursework to last minute

Again something I was very very guilty of doing so and as a result I got a very low mark on my most important piece of coursework. I knew I could of gotten better but due to me leaving it to the last minute I got a lower mark. If you get an assignment and the due date is 4 weeks away, don't leave it to last minute to write it. I would try and do it within two weeks so that the third and fourth week you can check it over and then relax and knowing you won't have to do an all nighter.

You could even do a bit week by week but don't leave it to last minute, some people may be able to bash out an assignment last minute and get a good mark, but if you know your not that person then do it earlier saves all the stress and hassle.

Have Fun 

Seems self explanatory but have fun. First year can seem quite stressful cause your trying to settle into a new routine, juggling a social life and university work but enjoy it. First year is the easiest year you will have as it normally is only worth 10% so you have some leeway in terms of getting low marks. I'm not going to tell you not to party as party all year long if you wish as long as you have fun.

University is supposed to be a fun experience and second year is where you will have to knuckle down a bit more. Also your only a fresher once so enjoy it as I would go back in a heartbeat if I could.

So that was my advice to all you first years heading to university in September, enjoy the build up as much as you would the actual experience, go celebrate and get prepared as your in for one hell of a ride.
My final thoughts to you all is good luck, have fun and enjoy every minute.

I hoped you enjoyed this post and found it useful, there will be some more university post's coming your way in the next few weeks so look out for them.

Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream SPF 15 Review





Hey everyone, 

I am back with another beauty post and this time it is a review of the Clarins essential silky creme with spf 15. This product is part of the Clarins hydrating range which got re launched in March of this year I believe. 
I bought this when I was in duty free as I forgot to pack a moisturiser and I had been wanting this for a while so it seemed the perfect time to try it out.

There is two types of hydra- essential moisturisers one with spf 15 and one without. I chose the one with spf 15 as I was going on a holiday to Tenerife so it made sense. 

My first impressions of the product was that it didn't feel thick as such but it did have some weight to the product. When we arrived in Tenerife I tried it on the back of my hand and it blended in easily and felt very hydrating. 
I tried it on my face the first night we was there and it felt really hydrating, it kind of reminded me of the Origins overnight mask which I also love. 

I originally planned to tell you about the pros and cons of the product but for me personally, I can only find one con of the product which is a testement to how well this has worked for me. The one fault I have with it is that it is feels sticky after application, which is fine at night but not great if am in a rush and need to apply my makeup straight away, as I find it doesn't apply that great unless I wait for it to dry.

Overall this moisturiser has worked wonders on my skin, it has provided me with the much needed moisture that my skin needs. It also works well with all of my other skincare products in my routine. 

I would highly recommend this product as I struggle to find a moisturiser that is suitable for my sensitive dry skin, yet this one ticks all the boxes.
I have my eye on a few of the other products from the range as it has impressed me so much. 

I hoped you enjoyed reading my thoughts on the Clarins Hydra -essentiel moisturiser, let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of the products from the range. 

Have a fabulous sunday and I will see you all again next week.

What Is In My Beach Bag - Summer Holiday 2017



Hey everyone, 

Back again with another post and this time it is a what is in my beach bag. I thought this would be a super fun post to do showing you all what I had in my beach/pool/water park bag while I was in Tenerife. 

The essentials -  These are the things that stayed in my beach bag throughout the whole of the trip and never really got swapped out. 

Ganier Dry Mist Factor 30 Sun Cream - Great sun cream worked well on my fair skin although me being in the sun for 7 days straight meant I was always going to burn.

Asos Sunglasses - I can only wear prescription sunglasses but these where good for when I just closed my eyes and sunbathed, to stop any rays disturbing my sunbathing.

Carex wet wipes- An essential in any of my travel bags as there great to refresh your face and also to wipe your hands clean. 

Tissues - Bit boring but always an essential in any of my bags.

Asos Sun hat - Loved this sun hat, not only is it gorgeous it kept the sun out of my face and stopped my hair from burning.

Sun Lip Balm - This was a huge help and it stopped me from burning my lips.

Beach towel - Need I say more can't have a beach bag without a beach towel, mine was from Matalan and done it's job.

Wet brush - This was so useful for brushing my hair after being in the pool or on the rides in Siam Park,  loved this so much. 

Extras   - Items that I didn't always have in my bag but did on occasion.

Cooling mist - I loved this for cooling me down when it got really hot, was a nice little refresher for the skin and body.

Book or magazine - Was a great way to pass the time

Coverup - Great to cover up a bit more of my skin and also they looked cute, which one depended on which bikini I wore

Small hand towel- to cover up where I had already been burnt to not burn even further

Clamp/Bobble - Great for putting my sweaty hair up and keeping it off my face. 


So that is everything that is in my bag. I hopped you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below what you keep in your beach or pool bag!
I will see you again next sunday with a new post

Duty Free Haul - Tenerife Edition



Hey everyone, 

First of this post is way way over due and I apologise for how late this is going up. Secondly it is going to be quite a short post as I didn't buy that much this time around from duty free. Lastly this is a to combined duty free haul from both on my way to tenerife and returning from tenerife.  Also I can't remember the exact prices for the products as we threw away the receipts.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle purse spray perfume 

I picked this up as I adore the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance and really wanted the purse spray as it's easier to carry around in my bag. I love that you get two refills with this which should last me a long time as I switch out my perfume regularly. 

Smirnoff Litre Vodka 

A duty free staple for me, whenever I am returning from somewhere I always pick up a litre bottle of vodka as vodka and coke is my choice of drink. I picked up the plastic bottle this time as it was less likely to be broken on route home.


Tom Ford Mandarino Di Amalfi Acqua 

This was a treat to myself for getting through my university exams and what a treat it is. It has a distinctive strong scent which I am not going to try and describe as I would butcher the scent. To me is basically smells like summer and will always remind me of Tenerife 2017. Plus everyones entitled to a bit of luxury now and again.

Clarins hydra-essentiel spf15 moisturiser.

This was bought as I didn't have a moisturiser to take with me so was a bit of an impulse buy. I am so glad I purchased this as it has worked wonders on my skin since using it, I won't go into to much detail as I do have a full review coming soon on my blog so look out for that.

So there you have my small but expensive duty free haul, like I said I didn't go overboard as we still have new york in 10 weeks so wanted to save for that. I hoped you enjoy this post even if it is so overdue.

I will see you again on sunday with a new post,

Heathers World Takes On The Big Apple - Our Package





Hey everyone, 

I am back with another post in my heathers world takes on the big apple series and this time it will be talking about our package and how we booked it. 
I thought this one would be a good one to do as a lot of people when booking New York tend to book flights and hotel separately whereas we have done it as one package. 

Expect a lot of New York posts coming up as we are 81 days away at the time of writing this post 25th July)
I am hoping to get a post up within the next month or so with our plans or things we have booked are booking, but I am just waiting on our friends to be free so we can organise that. 
Anyway after that way to long introduction let's get into the post.

Our Package 

So we have booked a five night six days package in new york. We choose five nights as we knew that it would take us longer to do things with my mums health conditions so 3 nights wasn't feasible, it would also mean that we would be flying home the day after my birthday which we didn't want to do. We also didn't want to do do 7 nights as it worked out more than what we budgeted for. 

We will be staying at the Park Central hotel in new york. When deciding our hotel we was looking at going five star with it being my birthday trip, but we just didn't fancy any of them and settled on a four star hotel. The hotel is gorgeous and is located in central manhattan and within close proximity to central park and times square. 

There is a few downsides to the hotel and that is the lack of restaurant/ breakfast which means we will be eating out all day every day, I think even if there was one we would only have had breakfast maybe one day in the hotel. Another was that the reviews had been hit and miss for the hotel. 

We booked flights, hotel, transfers, selected seats, and meals along with flexible booking which we used as it was originally just me and my mum. 

Who We booked with

We booked our holiday with Thomas Cook as they were one of the only companies allowing us to book more than a year in advance with flights included. 
Virgin was another company we looked at but we would of had to wait which we didn't want to do. 

We also choose to book with Thomas Cook due to the price they were charging as having done our research we found them to be the best value.

It worked out at around a little over 1000 each for the whole package which considering your getting 5 nights hotel with flights and the others I mentioned above it was pretty reasonable. Also for the price we got a hotel that is in central manhattan and close to things we want to see. 

Why we choose to book as a package 

This kind of ties in with the above statements. One of the reasons we choose to go for a package was that we was able to book way in advance which is what suited our needs. 

To go with that as we booked a packaged it has allowed us to pay it of bit by bit each month which suited our financial situation.

The final reason we choose to book a package was that it worked out substantially cheeper for us than if we had done it individually. We did look at booking them individually but it worked out more expensive so we decided to go for a package.

Have you booked new york through a package? If so how did you find it?

OOTN - Engagement Party Edition


Hey everyone, 

I hope your all well, todays post is going to be an outfit of the night. This past weekend I attended an engagement party of a close family friend and I thought it would be fun to show you the outfit that I wore. First of the engagement party was lovely, it is my godmothers son who I have grown up with so it was a lovely occasion. There were plenty of drinks, laughter and dancing and was a really great night.
I even ended up hungover which hasn't happened in a long time as I don't normally get hangovers. I have also included links to each item in case you would like to check them out. 

Top -  Embroidered Bardo Top

I got this top a while ago from TopShop so am not sure if you can still get in in store but it is still available online. I love it, it's the perfect summer top and what I love the most is that you can dress it up or dress it down. I choose this top because it looked dressy when paired with the rest of my outfit but still was slightly casual and suited the event perfectly. I also loved the flower detail on the sleeves of the top.

Pants - White Jamie Jeans 

This was the thing I was most nervous about wearing as lots of people had told me not to wear white but I had no other pants to go with my outfit, and to be honest there were other people there wearing white. But yeah I wore white oops, I choose jeans because again they looked dressy without looking overly dressy which was the look I was going for.




Shoes -  Aldo Ameline pink front cross heeled sandals 

I picked these shoes as I wanted a shoe without a block heel but looked elegant and complemented my top and clutch bag perfectly. These shoes were perfect, they were a bit big around my ankle but that it just cause I have dainty ankles. Not going to lie I didn't last all night in these as they killed so I switched into my flip flops halfway through the night.

Clutch Bag - Beige Stud embellished fold over clutch bag



To complete my outfit I choose this clutch bag from River Island, I loved the embellishment on it which helped it stand out against my relatively plain outfit. Also this bag is huge it fitted my flip flops, purse, portable charger, makeup amongst other things. It also just pulled the outfit together.

As for jewellery I just wore my Michael Kors rose gold Watch and my Pandora silver bow ring as I was going for a simple but elegant outfit which I think it was and wanted minimal extras.

I would love to know your thoughts on the outfit and what you would wear to an engagement party. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I will see you all again on Sunday.

What's In My Tenerife Makeup bag




Hey everyone, 

So I recently got back from my trip to Tenerife and I thought it would be interesting to show you what I took in my makeup bag and give my mini opinion on the product. I think I did overpack but I liked the idea of having options to complement different outfits that I took.






Face

Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer- Tried this for the first time on holiday and I love it, expect a review on the blog at some point soon.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser In Cameo- The jury is still out on this product, It sinks into my dry patches but else where it is lovely.
Nars Radient Creamy Concealer- Love this product, my holy grail concealer.

Mac Soft And Gentle Highlighter- Slowly becoming one of my favourite products, my failsafe highlighter.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector In Opal- Got this in a sephora favourite set, think it's a bit to golden for my skin tone but again jury is still out.
Chanel Creme Blush -
Charlotte Tilbury Blusher In Love Glow- Bit like soft and gentle this is my failsafe blusher, goes with everything and looks lovely.
Becca X Chrissy Highlighting Palette - Love love love, got a full review of it on my blog here so check it out if you want to know my full opinions.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray- Best setting spray ever hands down keeps my makeup on all night.





Eyes 

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette - I think I fell even more in love with this eyeshadow palette on holiday if that was even possible. Got a full review here, so once again check it out if you want to know my full thoughts.

Mac Naked Lunch Single Eyeshadow- My fail safe eyeshadow, gorgeous neutral but stunning at the same time.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - The best eyeshadow primer I have ever tried.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mini Mascara - It's a good mascara but not the greatest one I have tried.

Maybeline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara - I know it's loved by loads but I just don't like it. I may like the original better but look out for my full review of the product.

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Liner - Never used it so can't give a full opinion on it.





Lips

Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Lipstick - Love this for when I want a change from a nude to something more peachy

MACxAlessandra Lipstick - Pretty Much what I wore all holiday in the end, love love this lipstick and wish it was part of the permanent collection.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boy- Hands down one of my favourite nude lipsticks ever and one of my favourite luxury lipsticks ever.

Tom Ford Lipstick in 7 Pink Dusk - My little piece of luxury, gorgeous shade and lasts a decent amount of time.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liners In Pink Venus And Pillow Talk - Love both of these lipliners and the Lip Cheats in general, I really need to get more of them.


So that's everything I took to Tenerife, leave me a comment below letting me know what is in your holiday makeup bag. I hope you all enjoyed this post and I will be back next week with a new post.

Meet Duke- My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel






Hey Everyone, 

Todays post is a different post than I normally do but I thought it would be a fun post to do for you all. So this post is going to be introducing you to my Doggy/Baby Duke as I might feature him in a few more posts.  So here is a Fact File on the baby of the family. Sorry if you were expecting a proper post!

Duke is mine and my mums two year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. 
He was born on the 29/06/2015
He is Black and Tan with a strip of white going down the middle of his stomach. 
He is very stubborn and likes to make sure were aware of his stubbornness at least twice a day. 
He is a woman's dog- He adores my granddad but will follow me, my mum or nan around instead of my granddad. 
Duke is very loveable, he loves getting a fuss especially his belly tickled and will give kisses to any one who will accept them. 
He isn't the biggest fan of other dogs, depending on the type of dog will depend on how open he is to playing with other dogs. 
He loves his walks with his Granddad in the morning- He will sit on the back of the couch and stare at his house as we live in the same street. 
He is great with children, couldn't meet a nicer dog when it comes to children. 
Duke has a very cheeky side to him that comes out on a regular basis. 
His happy smile is one of the best things about him as he can put a smile on anyones face just by smiling. 
He thinks he's a cat and will sit on the back of our couch. 
He has the loudest snore I have ever heard, louder than any human I have met. 
He will tell you when he wants to go to bed and if you don't he will get a nark on. 

So I think thats everything you need to know about Duke, He is a huge part of our family and one of my favourite people in the whole world. I hope you enjoyed this different post, I thought it would be fun to do as I tweet about him loads and may feature him in some future blog posts.

First Year of University Review


Hey everyone, 

I hope your all well, I thought I would switch things up on the blog this week and do a first year of University review. So in short I am going to give a review of my first year at university. 
This might be useful for anyone considering studying my course at the university I am at or just for future freshers to see what they have in store. I am going to break this down into three sections : Course, My feelings, Overall experience. 

I am also thinking of doing an advice for freshers post so if there is any other university related posts you would like to see please leave them in a comment below and I will do them. So now that the long introduction is over with let's get into this post. 

So I study BA Hons Business Management and Marketing at Liverpool Hope University. I have just completed my first year and am awaiting my results that get released on this coming Thursday 29/6/17.

Course

I choose this course as I love business but I particularly love Marketing specifically social media marketing, this course gives me the chance to combine the two. Liverpool hope offers a wide range of business courses from business management on it's own to accounting to marketing combined with other courses. 

For my course I had 3 lectures for both subjects, 1 seminar for each subject and one tutorial for each subject. 
Now in terms of assessments I had one low stakes 5% assessment for each subject. For Marketing I also had one other solo assigment work 29% and a group presentation/essay worth 33% that I worked on with my friend. To add to that my final exam was worth 33%

Business Management was a bit different I had a low stakes assessment which in this case was a referencing quiz, one big assignment worth 33%. We then had our portfolio which was worth 29%. In each of our tutorials we would get a reading and would have to summarise it and each week one person would present theres in a powerpoint and lead the group discussion on that one. Everyone else would participate and this is what builded up our portfolio, we would get marks for attending, having our summary, being non disruptive and based on how much we participated, this would get added onto the marks we got for leading the discussion and presentation when it was our turn. 

Sounds complicated but it really wasn't and I liked that they did this as it was an easier way to get some marks for someone who isn't amazing at essays.

I found the subjects that we covered in business to be great although I found some Like HRM and MIS to be not as fun as the others! 

Our lectures were great to, they were always just an email away if you had any problems or was unsure about any assignments and they were great at delivering the content of the subjects. Overall I really enjoyed the course and I am looking forward to my second year if I pass.

My Feelings 

So here I will talk about how I felt about the course, did it suit me, did I enjoy.

So How Did I feel about this year in university?
I felt calm and relaxed, I made friends very quickly so I settled in to university life very fast. Don't get me wrong there were times when I got stressed but that was normally when I had assignments due in as well as a summary.

I found the course to suit me perfectly as it gave me the opportunity to study two subjects I love.
For the most part I enjoyed the course, there was times that I did question if it was right for me but in the end it was.

Overall Experience 

My overall experience of first year was a positive one. I enjoyed the course although like I said there was parts I didn't enjoy as much as others but your going to get that with most courses. The lectures and support staff are great at Liverpool Hope, my fellow students were lovely and overall it was a great experience. It brought me out of my comfort zone a lot and helped me to grow in confidence in many ways.

In comparison to the two months I did in Edge Hill, Hope hands down beats them by a mile of in every way in my opinion. I am super excited to get my results and see if I have passed, I am looking forward to putting even more hard work in next year and bettering my grade and to continue on growing.

Heres to my results day (and hopefully a pass grade) and fingers crossed to the next two years at Hope University!

So My First year is over and what a roller coaster that was. I hope you enjoyed this personal post and found it a bit useful. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and I will see you again soon!

Tenerife Trip Report!




Hi Everyone,

So if your a long time reader of my blog you would know that a while back I done an Alcudia duty free wish list for my holiday in June. Well not long after that post went live we changed our trip to Tenerife as we fancied that instead so here is my trip report :


Day One - Monday 5th June 2017 :




Today was travel day and seeing as our flight didn't depart till ten to three there wasn't a lot to say or so I thought so. We got up and done some last minute prep, got picked up and dropped of at the airport and headed to bag drop of. Got through that quickly and of we went to security. We booked fast track security and I was so glad we did as we got through within 20 minutes.

Once we got through security off we went to duty free where some purchases happened, look out for my haul coming soon. We then went to get some food at the grain loft I believe. Not long after that boarding opened and our journey began.

I am going to save you the details of the flight cause it was just your general standard four and a half hour flight. Felt like it was an eight hour one but I just put my earphones in and four and a half hours later we arrived in Tenerife. Got to Tenerife got our bags and on the coach we went to our hotel.
We checked in, went to get some food as they kept it open for us and then we got our room number. Having already decided that we wasn't going to go out tonight as we wanted to unpack, chill and get ready for a long day tomorrow. So that's what we did!


Day Two - Tuesday 6th June 2017 :






So we woke up a bit later than we had planned to ready for a full day of whatever we choose to do. We went down for breakfast and there was a lot of food options ( I will do a full review of the hotel very soon) Had breakfast which was lovely, went back to our room to chill on our balcony for a bit.

We then decided to take a walk to the beach to explore the area and see what was down there. It was lovely we had a lovely stroll along the beach front, sat on some sun loungers and had a nosey in some of the shops. We then went back to the hotel had some lunch and went to the upper deck of loungers to sunbath as we found this area to be quieter. 
Sunbathed for quite a while before we went back to the room to cool down and relax for an hour or so before we headed down to dinner. 

Dinner was good I had steak and chips and it was good, don't get me wrong it's not the best I have ever had but it was edible and had a good taste. Dinner seemed to be over in a flash and before we knew it we was sat having drinks in the lounge area, and then went up at around half 10 as we originally planned on having an early night as we planned to get up early to go to Siam Park. 

Day Three - Wednesday 7th June 2017 :




We woke up today with the idea of going to Siam Park but the weather in the morning was a bit overcast so we decided to spend the day in the resort sunbathing.  Went down had breakfast, came back to our room and chilled on the balcony which was lovely. *You will see we did a lot of sunbathing and chilling but we didn't plan on an action pack holiday as we both wanted to relax and unwind* 

We then went down to put our towels on the sun loungers on the upper deck as we just preferred to sunbath here than by the pool. We stayed out for around 2 1/2 hours before we went back to the room to cool off for a bit as we wanted to tan not burn. 
We cooled of in our living room for an hour before we went back down to soak up even more sun for another two hours, after that we went back to cool off and get ready for dinner and night time plans. Dinner again was okay I tended to get whatever meet was on that night with chips as I just seemed to prefer that. We then sat down for around an hour having drinks before deciding to take a night time stroll along the beach. 

We walked along to the beach and had a stroll along the bars where we stopped and had some drinks, before we walked to the beach area to take some photos. We then walked back to the hotel and managed to catch the adult entertainment which was 80's Night and a good laugh. 

Day Four - Thursday 8th June 2017 :



Today was the day we did ended up going Siam Park and it was amazing, I am not going to go into detail as I do want to do a review of Siam park on my blog. We started the day by going to breakfast and then coming back to our room and getting our bags ready. We choose to get a taxi as it was on €6  and it saved trying to que for the bus. Once we got into siam park we went and put our towels on some loungers and put our bags in lockers. Of we went on some rides, now we didn't go on everything as we burned quite quickly and the heat had got to us a bit so we left around 3ish, the rides we did go on were great and I wish we had stayed and done them all but am sure we will be back.  We also had some food in Siam which was actually not that bad either. 

We got back to the hotel where I was in so much pain with the sunburn on my shoulders so I caked my self in after sun and cooled down under the fan in our living room. We stayed there for around 2 hours just letting our burns cool down so that we could wear clothes and go down to dinner. Again dinner was okay I didn't each as much as my sunburn made me feel a bit sick as my shoulders were red raw!! I quickly popped back to the room after dinner to re apply some after sun to my burn and then we went down and sat outside to enjoy some drinks before the evening entertainment. 

The adult entertaiment was a hypnotist and it was hysterical, I was crying my eyes out laughing at the things he had the volunteers doing. It was the most popular night with there being every seat taken and I can see why, he had everyone do some basic ones in our seats and then asked for some volunteers to participate in the main show. The main show was great he had one lad walking round asking us had we seen his parrot, I don't think I stopped laughing the whole time the show was on. 


Day Five - Friday 9th June 2017 :




Today I spent a lot of the day in the shade as my sunburn was killing me. I applied a factor 50 before we went on the rides and I still managed to burn like my mum so we spent the day tanning our legs under a parasol. Like I said we didn't do any excursions or anything as this was our relaxing holiday although I would do more of this when we go back.  Mum went down early in the morning to put our towels on loungers and to make sure we got one with an umbrella. We again went for breakfast and then of we popped to tan our legs as they were as pale as ghosts compared to the upper half of our body. 

The whole day was spent tanning and having little breaks in which we would go and cool under our fan in our room and re applying our after sun. Lunch in the hotel was okay it was probably my least favourite meal of the day in terms of food selection but it's all inclusive so I don't expect amazing food. 

Dinner like always was great, defiantly my favourite meal of the day in the hotel as I got my little ice cream as desert. Tonights entertainment was karaoke which we stayed for a bit but tbh the atmosphere was flat as there wasn't many people and it was hands down the worst night so far for evening entertainment. So Instead we decided drinks on our balcony was a better option. 

Day 6 - Saturday 10th June 2017 :



Today was a bit like Friday although we did take another walk down to the beach mid day (Can you tell we liked the beach) This time we went to the far end of the beach that we hadn't been to before, stopped of for drinks again as per aha. We then went back and sunbathed Again and done our usual routine of cool down, go for dinner, have drinks and then watch the entertainment which was Rock 'N' Roll night. 

Day 7 - Sunday 11th June 2017 :





This was a last full day and we had planned to spend it at Siam Park again but with Thomas Cook entertainment team not working Sunday we thought people may go there, so instead we decided to take advantage of an less full resort and spend time in the pool and getting the last of our sunbathing in. 
So we did just that, spent the day in and out of the pool and trying to make our tan even, we also chose to pack our cases, as we had booked late check out for the following day so didn't want to spend that time packing our case

Our last dinner was probably the worst one we had, it just seemed to be a random selection of food and it just wasn't as nice as the previous nights food we had. The entertainment was a bird show so we sacked that of in favour of going down to the beach and having drinks there. Well that was the plan, instead we got chinease take away as we was still hungry and spent our last night on the balcony reminiscing about the holiday. In my opinion the perfect end to what was an amazing holiday. 

Day 8 - Monday 12th June 2017 : 




Leaving day 😢

We had booked late check out which meant we didn't have to leave our room till 3pm as we wasn't getting picked up until half five ish as we had a twenty to nine flight back to Manchester.  So we had breakfast and took one last walk to the beach buying some souvenirs and presents, also taking some good photos on my dslr camera. 

By the time we got back it was time for lunch so we went and had lunch, did a bit of sunbathing on the lounger and then went back to the room to pack hand luggage and weigh our cases. 

Three came around pretty quickly and before we knew it we was saying goodbye to our suite and leaving our luggage in the luggage room in the resort. As we had two hours to kill we bought a pack of cards, played games and had some drinks. I had gotten changed from my shorts and t shirt into my leggings and light jumper to fly home in. Big regret as it was boiling still and I was sweating like nothing else. 

Before we knew it we was on our coach going to the airport, and in a flash bag drop of and security was over and done with. Then came duty free where we spent our last euros before going and buying some food to eat on the plane. Then our gate came up so of we went to sit near our gate. It literally felt like an hour from the time we got picked up to the time we got on the plane even though it was three hours, the time just flew by so so quickly. 

Twenty to nine rolled around and the plane took off heading for Manchester. We got back to Manchester around 1 and we finally arrived back to Liverpool around 2am. That was our holiday over and done with and it was back to the real world as I was in work at 5pm that night. 

I had the most amazing holiday and wish I was back there, although their isn't long to wait till I fly again. I hope you all enjoyed this trip report and it wasn't boring for you all, expect some more holiday related posts coming very soon. I hope everyone has an amazing Thursday and I will be back again with another post soon.  Also if you want a photo diary blog post of the trip report as I have so many more photos to show you.
