It's three weeks today, until I go on holiday. I will be flying to Lanzarote, on a four and a half hour flight. I started to think about what I would be carrying in my hand luggage, a while ago. This post features the top five things I always take with me.

To start off with, I always take a number of books with me. That's for entertainment on the plane, and when I'm sat around the pool. Usually, I'll keep one in my suitcase, however, the airline I'm flying with doesn't offer inflight entertainment (apparently!) So I need to find other forms of entertainment. The first is Paper Towns by John Green. I'm pretty sure you've already heard about this one. It's been out a while, but it's the book I want to read next. I don't know about you, but I have phases of when I read, and when I don't. Last year, I look Game of Thrones with me. BIG MISTAKE. Don't get me wrong, I love Game of Thrones, but the thing is so difficult to read! I was constantly googling which character was which! Anyway .. a bit of topic. The second book is by a author called Paula Hawkins. To be honest, I haven't heard of her before now, but this book is a thriller, and I fancy something in contrast to John Green. 

Secondly, my phone for a number of things. You can use an iPad too, but I prefer to leave that at home, just incase. I like to download puzzle games to use, and music! When it's a flight without inflight entertainment, I like to download my favourite programmes. At the minute, I'm doing a rerun of Gossip Girl, with my boyfriend. The best part of taking your phone is the plane selfie, when you're all set and ready to go.

Getting more into the beauty products. I don't like to wear heavy make-up on any flight, if I'm honest. To keep fresh, I have chosen a Victorias Secret fragrance mist. I absolutely love these. They smell delicious, and you can bring them home, and use them as room sprays. It just leaves you feeling a little fresher while you're on the flight, and you can top up in the toilets. I typically like to use a BB cream, to keep my face hydrated. I don't know about you, but my face and hands tend to dry out a little while flying. This helps to keep you hydrated throughout the flight, and it's easy to apply! Lastly is hand cream. I recently bought this from The Body Shop, and I LOVE the smell. It's the type of smell that makes you think its edible, so you have to bite your tongue not to. 

Remember! Those bottles need to be small! The Victoria's Secret spray can be put into one of the fragrance travel fills.

Hello my dears! For a while, my boyfriend and I have been so desperate to find a holiday, and we have.  On the 2nd June we are heading out to Lanzarote. We're staying in Playa Blanca. I've been to Lanzarote before, but I was really young. I remember it being so hot though, with a breeze. To 'celebrate' my holiday, I've decided to do some posts about holiday and the summer. I'll probably start with like outfits and things I've seen on the internet etc. For this post, I'm just going to be showing you the hotel I am staying in. We're staying in a cute little bungalow.  Enjoy these pictures.

Where will you be going on holiday this year? Have you visited Lanzarote before?

It's been a while hasn't it? I do apologise. Keeping up blogs is such hard work, I don't know how most people do it. I love blogging so much, but things get in the way I guess. I work two days at the weekend, then I go to uni, and I'm about to start planning my dissertation (send help). So I guess I should tell you a little about where I've been?

Again, university is key. Also, my boyfriend. They both take up A LOT of my time. I say that like it's a bad thing (it's not, I promise). We've been together for 5 months now! Two weeks ago, we went to Wales. We were meant to be going to Barcelona but things happen! My mum owns a caravan in North Wales, so we had a little trip and spent a couple of nights there. The weather wasn't great (obviously) but it didn't rain! We went on two little day trips, one to Conwy and one to Llandudno. Have you ever been there? We went up Conwy castle and it was a struggle. So. Many. Steps.

Before the castle we went to the cutest little cafe. I ate a vegetable lasagne! 

This was at the top of one of the towers. We were stood up there for a few minutes, and we heard a huge roar! Terrified for my life, but it turned out to be a train!

Walking into the castle, you're welcomed by this very grumpy man ...

 And lots and lots and lots of seagulls ..

But, the views are pretty awesome. 

I didn't take many pictures in Llandudno, because it was freezing! We just had a walk along the pier, and went to get a pub lunch. I bought us both some donuts, but we was advised to put them away. Why? Because there was a huge seagull ready to take them away. 

We can't wait to go back to both places, when the tourist attractions reopen. It's so much fun, and it barely costs any money. 

Are you planning any little breaks this year? Have you visited these places before? Let me know.

I'm easing my way back into blogging, and here I have The British Tag for you. This is just a few fun questions to answer. I tag everyone who reads this, comment if you do this and I will read yours!

1. How many cups of tea do you drink a day and how many sugars?
I'm sorry to disappoint but, I drink one cup of tea a day, every other day. The amount of sugar depends on the type of tea! If I have a normal teabag I usually have half a tea spoon of sugar and half a tea spoon of milk, precisely. If it's earl grey or green tea I have no sugar or milk. Pretty weird I know.

2. What is your favourite part of your roast dinner?
The roast potatoes, without a doubt. I'm sure we all think the same?

3. What is your favourite dunking biscuit?
A digestive! I haven't dunk a biscuit in so long.

4. What is your favourite quintessentially British past time?
A very large glass of wine in the pub.

5. What is your favourite word?
Blimey. Don't ask why, it just really makes me laugh.

6. Do you know any Cockney Rhyming Slang?
I actually don't! Hahaha

7. What is your favourite sweet?
Dip Dab! Oh my, the best sweet ever! Sherbet and a lolly!

8. What would your pub be called?
I have absolutely no idea! I'm so bad at this.

9. Who is your No.1 British Person?
At the minute, Kate Middleton. She's absolutely gorgeous and dresses amazinggggg. 

10. Favourite Shop and Restaurant?
My favourite British shop would have to be Primark or Selfridges. My favourite restaurant is obviously Nandos.

11. What British song pops into your head?
Oasis - Wonderwall or anything by The Beatles. 

12. Marmite?

The title of this post is 'Where have I been?' However, the real question is where to start? Since the last time I posted I have done a lot! So I'm not your typical girly girl, I'm one of the minorities of girls that love football! I support Manchester City (if you're interested) and I follow them to their away games. The atmosphere is amazing. It's not so great when you're sat on a mini bus for 4 hours though. But wait, it gets better. In September, I travelled to MUNICH via mini bus from MANCHESTER. Yes, you read that right, we drove from Manchester to Munich! What an experience. The city is awesome in it's own, and I visited the Allianz Arena! Unfortunately, we lost. 

Let's rewind before Munich! I travelled to London and Newcastle for other football matches, I won't go into detail because I don't want to bore you. 

One of the main reasons I've actually been missing though, is because I'm back at university and in my second year. I haven't had the best start however, because I've been really poorly all of October. The first week I had Tonsillitis, a couple of days later, I caught Glandular Fever. *this is where you feel sorry for me* 

That's where I've been in a nut shell. I have other posts planned to get back into this, I'm sorry I've been away!

So next month I will be attending my baby cousins christening. Christenings are always fun! It's a great chance for family and friends to get together and have drinks! So this first outfit, I have gone for a dressy/casual look. I absolutely adore these shoes though, I'm definitely going to buy them, no matter what I decide to wear. The trousers are from River Island, always a good store to shop in. I love the baby blue colour, which reminds me of the 'it's a boy' decorations you see, when a family member, or friend welcomes a baby boy. Perfect for a christening! I opted for 3 simple white tops. Obviously, this outfit needs dressing up a bit with some jewellery and a bag. I'm looking for a bag, similar to the colour of the pants, and a gold statement necklace. I've also tried looking for dresses, I don't know about you, but, I find half of the dresses this season have no shape to them! They are literally like ironing boards, that just hang off your body! I like dresses that gives your body a bit of shape! Can you recommend any dresses?
