Lush Christmas & Halloween 2017

Lush Christmas & Halloween 2017 | rljlowe
Ohhh it's that time of year again, where I trot off to Lush to take pictures and get a sneak peak of all their new Christmas and Halloween products. I decided to do things a little bit differently this year and mainly film my trip, because I'm starting to really get back into my YouTube and need to keep that new content coming... With that being said, I did still snap some pictures for those that enjoy still photos rather than videos, so here we go!

Zoella Winter Wonderland

Treasure Me Gift Collection | £40

My little sister, Ellen, likes to enter a lot of competitions on Twitter and Instagram. So when she messaged me saying she'd finally won one, you can imagine the surprise when she revealed it was two tickets to the Zoella Winter Wonderland. She asked if I would accompany her to London to visit the Winter Wonderland and of course, I had to say yes. I never thought I'd be excited for Christmas in September but I can tell you now, having a wander through that Winter Wonderland got me very excited about the upcoming festive season.

Summer in the City 2017

rljlowe | Summer in the City 2017This year, Ellen and I decided to take a little weekend trip up to London to attend Summer in the City. For those of you that don't know, SitC is a YouTube festival where you have the chance to meet your favourite YouTubers, meet other fans and watch industry specific panels. I made a video about our time at SitC, which can be found on my YouTube channel if you're more of a visual person!

50th Birthday Celebrations in Bath - Part Two

rljlowe | 50th Celebrations in Bath

If you read my previous post, you'll know the stress my sisters and I went through in order to organise this day for my Mum - it was all done out of love and managed to come together in the end. Now onto Mum's birthday, the actual day out. As mentioned previously, my car had a little bit of a meltdown which meant I wouldn't be able to drive us to Bath but luckily Mum said that she didn't mind - her car's got more space anyway!

50th Celebrations in Bath - Part One

rljlowe | 50th Celebrations in Bath
So on the 1st July 2017, my wonderful Mother turned 50. If anyone reading this knows my Mum, she's not really one for birthday celebrations, but this year I wanted to make sure that her day was truly special. Well, it's not everyday you turn 50 now, is it? The idea of a big surprise party was out of the question, I imagine Mum would have walked in, been completely horrified and turned straight back out the door again. Instead, she'd mentioned that she wanted to spend the day with me and the girls, and was trying to plan her own birthday weekend - naughty lady! Instead, I told Mum that all she needed to know for now was that we would be going for a day out in Bath, then onto a meal in the evening - just us. But of course, I had more planned...

Harry Potter Studio Tour

As a joint present for mine and Harriet's birthdays, Mum bought us all tickets to go to the Harry Potter tour in London. We've been a couple of times before but as is the way with these things, they keep adding in new attractions, so we just have to keep going back. Such a hardship, I know. It was the first time we'd gone without it being "Christmas at Hogwarts" and they now have the Forbidden Forest section and the Hogwarts Express. Excited didn't even come close.

Surprise Trip to Norway!

rljlowe | Surprise Trip to Norway!

As you can probably guess from the title, Rob took me on a surprise trip to Norway for my birthday. Last year he surprised me with tickets to Coldplay (amazing) and said that this year he would keep his present low-key but of course, he decided against that. With a little help from Sels and some little white lies told here and there, they managed to keep the trip a complete secret.

A Week with My Girls

rljlowe | A Week with my Girls

Falmouth University gave me a few things to be grateful for, and one (or three) of those things are my friends. We met through our course and have been friends ever since. It hasn't really been easy keeping up with each other, especially as Sels spends most of her time either in Norway or Kenya. But, we've made it work and through social media we're mostly able to keep up with what we're all up to. This aside, we managed to all get together to have a few days hanging out in Bristol, which was an absolute dream.
