Who is chArles?!

I know I was a little late to jump on the band wagon, but as soon as I watched the pilot episode of Pretty Little Liars there was no going back! I watched it CONSTANTLY- and somehow inbetween college, work and dancing I managed to watched the whole five series in just a few weeks. I love love LOVE it!!

I watched the final season and finale episode whilst I was away on holiday last week, and my brain is still trying to work out who chArles really could be. (Apologies for spoilers) I really think that chArles must be a brother to either spencer, Jason or Toby... That family connection is in there somewhere and I'm dying to find out how! Luckily tumblr is filled with pll theories which are helping me figure out some clues, but for any certain answers it will be a long old wait until season six premieres in June!

I now also absolutely adore Ashley Benson and think both her and her style are incredible!! I do feel slightly better knowing it's not only me who has become obsessed... It was my friends and my sister who got me watching it in the first place!

Apparently the real answer is so heartbreakingly twisted, sad and beautiful that no one will expect it... I can't wait!

Who do you think chArles really is?

Or are there any other series that I can turn my attention to whilst I wait for 'A'nswers?

Cheddar Gorge

 Who knew Lodges could be so fancy?

Last week I spent the most amazing few days at Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, where we stayed at a lovely spar resort. And the best part was that we got to be VIPs without paying the VIP prices!! (We are yet to discover why this was haha!)

We stayed in a brand new lodge..being the first people to ever stay in it which was pretty cool! I even preferred it to my own house; I'd quite happily live there tbh! We had five TVs, an enormous, beautiful kitchen, an Apple TV, play station 4 and even a jacuzzi!! It was literally Heaven!

It was so nice to have five relaxing days away, doing nothing but eat chocolate, lay in the jacuzzi and spend endless hours watching Netflix (Pretty Little Liars has got me hooked!) and being able to spend a few uniterupted days with my family. 

The week before I had my dance school show which completely knackered me out, leaving me like a zombie/ old woman for the days to follow... I felt as though I needed a walking stick my knees and back were hurting so bad! So the jacuzzi, sauna and steam room was a v good call.

It was also the last chance that I will properly have to relax before the stress of my A2 exams (which are aproachimg so fast it's v v scary!) And pig out on food as much as possible before I start a strict Ibiza diet for the summer, if I have any chance of looking half decent in a bikini!

The gorge itself was quite breath taking, and the caves were absolutely stunning (I shall leave some images below), but I have to say that my favourite part was watching the goats climb up the side of the steep gorge to reach the highest point of grass possible... It was so funny I could have watched them all day!! 

So I'll leave you by saying that don't ever forget to give yourself those moments to relax, whether it's for a week or just a few hours, you'll be surprised at what a difference it can make!

What's your favourite thing to do when your body needs that time to relax?

Time is a funny thing...

How does time go by so quickly? 
I have to admit that my commitment to my blog last summer failed miserably. 'I'll write a blog post this week' soon turns into 'oh I must write a blog post soon' and soon 'after Christmas I'll make a brand new start to my blog' ... And then before you know it its five months later and we're at the end of March!!

I would be lying if I didn't admit that I'm annoyed at myself. Writing a blog was something that I wanted to do despite being busy at college or with work or anything else that rudely decides to take over my life. But instead of leaving myself time to sit down, relax with a cuppa tea and write a blog post, I let myself forget about it and the promise that I made to myself.

But for no longer! 
I must must must not let time be an excuse for neglecting my blog, and from now on I will try my upmost hardest to write a post as often as possible!

Let's see how long I last this time... 

Hopefully longer than the first attempt!

Ps. Thank you for not unfollowing me whilst I've been away, whether you just purely forgot that you followed me or were genuinely waiting for my return... I appreciate it so thank you :)
