OOTD: A walk in the park

Hello! How are you doing? Enjoying the summer? or winter depending on where you are in the world... Where are you from and is it summer right now? Tell me in the comments below⬇⬇

I thought I'd do something different today an OOTD for a summer walk in the park
Let's get started...





What I love the most about this outfit are the shoes, trouble is I normally can't walk in heels, but these ones are so comfy and easy to walk in 😍 Let's go from top to bottom and leave the best for last.


Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find the one I'm wearing, it's from H&M, but this is as close as I could find.


Encuentro white embroidery blouse originally 17,99 €   now reduced to 9,99  €  



I am a massive jean lover and these are my absolute fave pair to wear

Encuentro Denim Push up jeans originally 22,99 €  now reduced to 12,99   

DRUMROLL PLEASE!
MAKE WAY FOR THE SHOES!👀👄




How fucking fierce do these look?? 
I got mine in the shop in the colour baby pink but for some reason on the online shop they're only available in black, go to our Stradivarius and hunt them down now!

Stradivarius High heel satin sandals 29,95   € 

Let me know below ⬇⬇ if you'd wear this outfit for a day out or a date

This is my new little island

Hey! It's been a while since I got down to writte any posts but I've been so busy!
 In August 2016 I move to an island called Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands.

This is my new little island

Why did I move to this island, when I already lived on one of the islands? 
I got a job offer as an English teacher in Gran Canaria.

That meant: 


Having to find my own apartment to live in. Settled for a simple studio apartment in the end.
Work within 30 min walking distance.


 Be prepared to be woken up by musical march bands every now and then.


Go to the beach every now and again, thats 2 min away from my new apartment.



 Dont forget to go to work!


 Celebrate carnaval and other festivities

 Canarian day!

 Go for walks
Fend for myself


Take selfies when bored.

If you'd like a post about what my work intales just leave a comment, until then...... ADIÓS AMIGOS.

My 2016

Another year done and dusted!
2016 has been a massive roller coaster for everyone.
Don't deny it.
We took 2016 and made some majorly bad political decisions.



Actors, singers and great people died.
David Bowie died after an 18-month battle with cancer Jan. 10. He was 69.
Alan Rickman died Jan. 14 from cancer. He was 69
To Kill A Mockingbird” author Harper Lee died in her sleep Feb. 19 at the age of 89

There are many many more to be put on the list but this is going to be about my 2016.


January
I was offered my first job as an English teacher and they let me g two weeks later because they wanted someone experienced even though they knew I had 0 experience but weren't willing to train me because it was too costly.

February

I baked amazing muffins

My grandparents came to visit and we went for a meal in a restaurant / hotel


It rained.


It's carnaval! The perfect excuse for me to put a onesie on and wonder around town knowing im not going to look a complete weirdo.



March

By this time I was working as a volunteer in a School and a babysitter to four sisters (ages 3-12) and apparently 1% fluent in Italian



My best friend came to visit for two weeks, we hadn't seen each other in 4 years

Started to get slightly interested in makeup.

April

I started using up the bath bombs I'd bought the year before on my trip to London

Went to the beach

 mmmmmm...

 Took a lot of selfies


My best friend came back and she stayed a little longer this time so we decided to go explore the island a bit.
(It's a dessert island so we found lots of sand)

May

May was the month I tried to go vegan, I lasted for about nearly three weeks until I could not resist the temptation of a Sunday Roast any longer.


I decided to do a lot of walking

Used Snapchat for a while

Went on long romantic walks with my dog only to discover a scrapyard 

Tried and failed to make home made pizza

Did some more island exploring


 Ended the month by stalking a stranger that looked hot


June
By June I had been offered and accepted a job as an English teacher on another island, I was to start in September.
But at the very begging of the month, before deciding on the job I was also trying to decide whether or not if I should instead go to Australia to be an Au pair or to the UK to be an English teacher.
I decided to accept the English teaching ob, not in the UK but in Gran Canaria, the island next door.
Therefor if anything went wrong I wouldn't be far from home.

So what did I do in June apart from interviews?

 Go to the beach


 Tried new things strawberry fizzy drink with licorice


 Took some photos of a bike ride



Passed the camera onto my returned best friend (shes a very skilled photographer as you can see)

July


By July I'd been blogging for a year, so I decided to take my family on holiday.




 Lots of food to be eaten.



 We went to Scotland


 My brother was also due to move away in September to start uni



 We got invited to watch a premier of a film my dad was featured in.



Stayed at a hotel for a night



Yumm


 Bought a new phone





August


 More beach!



Apartment hunting!


Found one...
time to celebrate!


September
Time to make my move!

Time to start my new life as an English teacher oh the joy!


October

By October I'd started to settle in, thought I'd be celebrating my birthday all alone for the first time ever but I didn't.


Went out for a birthday meal with friends I'd made at work


Then we had the clown epidemic
Aaand back to work




In November I spent the days...

Eating and..


And...

And...


Then saying ''Look how much weight I've lost!''


Started going out with friends I'd made at work



December



Had a few days off work at the beginning of the month so I decided to go and see my dad, we went to a market.

Didn't realize how much I'd missed Sunday roasts


Flew back

Went to a fair


Went out with friends
Had my first business dinner


Did the Xmas shopping


Flew back to spend Xmas with the family


Happy new year!
