LIFE | 2018

Hello, it's me, I'm back. Again. And as if it's 2018?! I'm pretty sure it was 2016 like two weeks ago.
Sooooo, this year I think instead of resolutions I'm going to instead look at how I can improve myself generally and not just focus on one specific thing.

1. First up, I'm going to try and be a better friend. Now don't get me wrong I'm not a bad friend. BUT I find myself very easily consumed into day to day life and not make plans till plans are way overdue. SO, one way I'm going to better myself is actually make plans with my besties.

2. This second one is a tad daunting to even think about is officially the year I graduate. With that, I really want to finish with the best grade I can and wether I go onto to do a Masters or get a job, just do my best to do well in whatever I chose to do.

3. The final one is that cliche one you can't help but hope for when a new year comes but I really want to be happier, 2017 brought a few new low points for me and I really want to spend more energy on positivity than negativity, which I've been guilty of not doing in the past. SO, I strongly believe 2018 although being the year in which I'll no longer be living with my two besties *crys* can and will be a bloody gooden'.

So there we have it my three ways and wishes that'll make 2018 better than the last.

Whats your guy's new year new you mottos?

 Hello lovelies!

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to go to Amsterdam for a long weekend to celebrate my mums 50th birthday (yeah I know Amsterdam with the parents?! surprisingly hilarious). 

Having never been before I didn't quite know what to expect, however I was not disappointed the city is incredible. I was also lucky enough to stay in the ohmygod Kimpton De Witt hotel - honestly, google it its amazing, the free wine between 5pm and 6pm make it all the better too. 

Personally for me I didn't go to Amsterdam for the sole purpose that many people in their twenties do - weed - having no interest in the stuff whatsoever. So, instead I actually enjoyed the sites and culture.

I won't bore you with the ins and the outs but a couple highlights of the trip was firstly, how insightful the Anne Frank Museum was and which has since inspired me to buy the book feeling ashamed I for some reason never read it as a child. 

The next highlight could be pretty strange seeing as I went with my parents but the Red Light District was a definite highlight. If you know my parents they're pretty damn funny so walking round and sitting in bars in such a place with them was hilarious. The best recommendation for you all is the Old Sailor pub in the district - lets just say - the BEST people watching in the world goes on through them pub windows, need I say more?

On the other hand, unless you love canals (unlike me) I wouldn't recommend the canal cruises so strongly. Let's just say I paid 11 euros to have a solid half hour nap on an hour cruise, to which my sister kindly took photo evidence of.

Have any of you guys been to Amsterdam? What did you think?

Till next time,
Sophie xx
