Hello, you! I'm Soph - a 22 year old girl currently living in Liverpool, spending most of her time writing, taking photo's, drinking coffee & trying not to eat too much cake.

A little life update




Well hey guys! I feel like it's been so long since I've actually sat down and wrote anything. The last few weeks have been a little hectic, and I've so so missed actual blogging. I even cheated last week and got someone else to write my bloomin' Sunday post for me!

Not only have the last few weeks been a little busy, the next few are looking like they're going to be keeping me on my toes too. But do you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way right now. I'm busy in a good way, and by the end of the next few months, I'll hopefully have some lovely and exciting things to share with you guys, which I CAN'T WAIT for... one of which involves another blogger, so keep your eyes peeled for that one. Y'know, not that we'll make sure you all know anyway... ;)

So I thought I'd do a little life update for you all, in a kind of, Instagram round-up kinda way. Cause we all know how much I love Instagram. So why the hell not!


One day last week, I was in the flat attempting to sort my life out (as per usual), and the weather outside kinda caught my eye. It was so lovely! Even at 6.30pm, the sun was still shining and it just looked like the perfect evening for a little stroll. So I thought I'd just take myself off and have a wander! I've lived in Liverpool for about 18 months now, and worked here even longer, but I've never properly explored the city. I ended up being out for a good few hours in the end, and I loved it! This first photo was taken in a little square up by the University, it's so lovely up there, I'll definitely be heading back.

I've also felt a little meh about my work wardrobe recently, and I felt like it needed a bit of an update. So where else would I head other than Zara. I freakin' love this place. Especially for work clothes, because I feel like their clothes can be worn either for the office, or dressed down and accessorised for an every day look. Not gonna lie, I didn't have much will power in there and bought a fair few things! Don't worry, I'll be showing you EVERYTHING pretty soon!


Now, just in case you've been asleep for the last few weeks, last Saturday marked #bloggersfestival, arranged and hosted by Scarlett from Scarlett London, it was held at the Conrad London St James' hotel, and was attended by about 200 bloggers. Could you get any more of a perfect blogger day out!?

Needless to say, I LOVED it. It was a super long day, but it was so lovely to see everyone again, as well as meet some of you guys who I've been talking to on Twitter! I love London. I think it's such a great city, and I wasn't disappointed this time either. There's always loads going on and loads to see, and yeah, I had a fabulous day with some of my favourite girls! I didn't get to take too many photo's because there was just so much going on and so many people to talk to, it was one of those days where I didn't feel like I stopped until I climbed back into bed,  a whole 17 hours later!


Last but not least, are these photo's from when I got chance to visit one of the Beefeater restaurants. You can read all about the visit here if you wish!

That same weekend, I was also lucky enough to visit a spa with one of my best friends, who had taken me as a belated birthday present, and we spent a lot of long-awaited time together and well, it was awesome. Not only did we get one of the best back massages EVER, it was just nice to have a proper life catch-up, considering we literally hadn't seen each other in months!

I think I'm gonna stop there because I'm fully aware you guys probably aren't that interested in all the in's and out's of the last few weeks! I'm off on holiday tomorrow (eeeeeeeek!) so things may be a little quiet around here for another few weeks yet, BUT I promise, that once I get back, I'll be throwing myself straight back into this whole blogging thing again. And who can forget it'll be basically time for the #bloggersblogawards too! I CAN'T BLOOMIN' WAIT.

I guess this would be a good chance for me to say an absolutely MASSIVE thank you to anyone who's voted for me. 12 months ago I didn't even know what a blog was. And now, 10 months after I started this, I've been shortlisted for Best Up and Coming Lifestyle Blog. I literally still can't believe it, it's all been so overwhelming, (and without sounding cheesy) it all means so much... my blog, the community, everything. It's been such an amazing journey so far, and I can't wait for the rest of it!



(The voting is still open until 20th September, so if you haven't yet voted, you can do so here if you wish!)

There are some big changes heading my way over the next couple of months, and I'm so ready to start a whole new chapter soon.

Soph
