Holiday photography.

A couple of you asked more about my holiday. I went on a 7 night cruise to the Norwegian fjords. Please do request to see a few more photos of any specific aspect such as the cruise boat or more about one of the ports.

For this trip I took a Nikon D90, my smaller Canon Powershot G10, and some with my Iphone 5c.

The first port we went to was called Bergen. It was a beautiful town with local markets and souvenir shops.We also went on a Floibanen (High speed train) up to Mount Floyen.



The second port was Skjolden. It was a small place with mainly houses and one or two shops. Although this was the one of the smallest ports this has to be one of my favorite places as the views were unimaginable.


To get to this port you had to go via a tender boat. This is basically a lifeboat as the port isn't big enough for the boat. There wasn't much to do but they had an amazing chocolate shop and some beautiful waterfalls.


This was a large town with small alleys, cute houses and a large town.

Teenage relationships.

I have an older sister who has helped me create and interpret my own opinions of relationships as a teenager. 

I believe that your main priority should be getting your GCSE's and grades at this age. You will have plenty of time when you're older to develop your own relationships. Don't think that if your friends all have boy/girlfriends that you need to have one. 

On the other hand if you do happen to gain feelings for another then do not feel pressured to do anything with them. Everyone becomes ready to do different things at different times and when you do come to do things I promise it will be better when you become ready. Your boy/girlfriend should also know that you may not be ready straight away. I probably sound like some 50 year old sex ed teacher but it's just my opinion. I want you all to be safe,comfortable and happy in a relationship. If you choose to have one. 

Since last Christmas I've been talking to a boy. We got along so well and became close but I wasn't looking for a 'relationship'. My friends and a lot of people were telling me I was 'leading him on' so I dated him. I wasn't happy and he understood. It's hard to be friends after you've become that close. 

Just because you date someone it doesn't mean you love them. I don't think 'love' is something you can't achieve at such a young age in your life. You need to experience different things before and meet new people. I don't see how it would work if you have to text your mum when you're together to check in every so often..

I think putting so many labels on the stages of a relationship is stupid. The 'talking' stage, the 'seeing eachother', the 'dating'. Why not just see how it goes? Why do you have to be put into a certain group as to where you are in your friendship with someone? As long as you're happy; it doesn't matter.

I'm not saying I'm right and everyone will have different opinions but that's mine.

It's the good things.

Currently I'm mad. To stop me being mad I'm reminding myself/ venting/ making a list of what's been making life good lately.

  1. My beautiful puppy.
  2. I just went on the most beautiful holiday. 
  3. Years&years 
  4. Olly Alexander.

     5.  Sam Smith. 
     6.  Tumblr. 
     7.  My (nearly!) clear skin.
     8.  Disney movies.
     9.  Spending more time with my family
    10.  The amazing fajitas I had for dinner!

I know this isn't interesting at all. This is my place to vent so feel free just to ignore it.

Holidays and new arrivals.

The one thing I have learnt in a week is how much I needed a one week break. A break from WiFi, social media and the everyday issues a teenager faces. I just went on a cruise named The Azura and went to the Norwegian fjords and it was beyond beautiful. I cannot even begin to explain how beautiful the places I visited were.

The cruise itself was amazing. The cuisine was beautiful and I enjoyed the 'grab and go' bar where you took the food and left without paying. The only thing is I'm wondering if I'll make the mistake of walking in somewhere and taking food without paying,

This post has been in my drafts since Sunday as we've been busy with Oakley, our new arrival. A cavalier crossed with a poodle. 10 weeks, Cute as hell. I am tired and exhausted, still love him. I'm very tired but will add more detail in my next post when I find time to write it!

In the meantime it would really help if you could tell me what you would like to see more on here, any suggestions? It can be anything.
