    For the Love of Travel!

    In an attempt to keep things fresh on the blog, I’ve opted to write about a variety of topics but in a more uniformed way. I’m trying to get back into the blogosphere slowly, so I thought if I had some sort of plan in place this would help. Every month, I’m going to try and post at least 4 times within these categories: Lifestyle, Travel, Food & Books. These are things I’ve written about a lot over the years anyway, but now I’m going to try and tame the chaos that is my blog. Last week’s post was about self-care and this week I’ll be discussing my love of…

    What I’m Thankful For

    I thought I’d pop this post up whilst I work on a few others that will be coming out over the next few weeks. Also, Christmas is coming up so I’m excited to think up ideas for Blogmas! Although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK, I thought it’d be good to take a moment to write about what I’m thankful for. 💕 Friends I’ve always believed you are who you are because of your surroundings, what you consume via television, film, books or various other media, your upbringing and family, and most importantly your friends. I am so thankful for the friends that I have in my life who have…

    25 Things I’ve Learned In 25 Years

    I turned 25 last Monday and I’m still shook because I have no idea where time has gone. I swear it was only the other day that I was celebrating my 18th birthday by having a debut (complete with pink dresses, 18 roses and candles and a whole lot of cheese). Nancy reminded me today that she’s been following me since I was 18. That’s 7 years, guys. Half way to 50 and I’m pleased to say there are a few things I’ve learned along the way, so here are my 25 things I’ve learned in 25 years. Learn to love yourself before getting into a relationship. I think I’ve mentioned…

    And We’re Back

    Okay, so I didn’t have a planned date of when I’d be back hence why I took an indefinite hiatus. There were several times where I did open up a blank document but literally my mind was all over the place, so that didn’t work out. In between more hair loss, heart break and just the overall stress of life I really haven’t had much time to think about blogging. I have missed it, though! A lot. I’ve been lurking, as I said I would, and I’ve been seeing everyone’s achievements and I am so proud ❤️ Y’all are bringing a tear to my eye. You’re probably wondering what I’ve really…

    Life Lately

    Lets do a roundup of Chynna’s life lately. In between working and sleeping and mostly eating, I haven’t had a change to properly update you guys on what has been happening in my life. I am mostly active on Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram so follow me there if you want minute to minute updates on how boring my life is. Jk ~ it’s actually pretty decent. We’re in August now, which also happens to be my birthday month (clearly the best month to be born in, IMO), and I still can’t believe that the year has flown by so quickly already. Considering how shit 2016 has been, in terms of…

    Shoreditch Nights

    Let’s just say, this weekend has been a bit crazy. I went out on Friday night and got stupidly drunk on half a bottle of vodka… Saturday was not a fun day. Today I managed to get myself out of bed and back into some sort of routine.  I recently connected with a very old friend of mine from primary school! We hadn’t really spoken since we were about 8/9 when I moved to a new school, but as she still lives in area we bump into from time to time. The last time we saw each other we finally exchanged numbers  to stay connected. My friend is very into…

    Me Encanta Barcelona

    Barcelona in one sentence: sun, sea and alcohol. Well, maybe not so much sun because it was pretty cloudy when we went. My friends were complaining that it was too hot, but as someone who’s been to the Philippines many times it was like water off a duck’s back for me. Nevertheless, I have an interesting tan line on my butt to show for it. Barcelona is amazing. It’s so amazing that I’m going back in September with Mutay. I haven’t booked anything, yet, but the passion to go back is so ridiculous. Alas, I’m stuck in an office being jealous of my colleague who’s going to China in August.…

    Catching up with Friends

    I went to see the Lego Movie with a friend today and I absolutely adored it. I’ve always been a big fan of Lego, so when I first watched the trailer for it I was really excited. The film did not disappoint. My favourite character had to be Batman voiced by Will Arnett, but also Vitruvius voiced by Morgan Freeman. After the film, my friend and I went to McDonald’s where I got a Happy Meal (I am aware that I am 21 years of age) and I got a Batman Lego cup. Day made? Day made. Yesterday, I went out to dinner for a friend’s birthday. It was really…

    (Not) A Moment of Peace

    I finally have a little moment to myself. This past week has been very crazy and it’s only Thursday! I dread to think what’s in store for me in the next few days. So, as you guys know I had an interview for the store Primark last week. I got the job! They called me the same day as my interview to say they wanted to offer me the job and that I would have my induction on the Saturday. It all happened a bit fast but I’m so glad I have a job now – can finally start earning some money, save up and fly awaaaaay. My induction on…
