February 2019 | Lifestyle.

Hello hello, and happy March everyone! Can we just take a moment to think about the fact that it is March... MARCH sorry, where did the last 2 months go?! February has been a brilliant month for me so I hope it's been a good one for you too and that you've all had a wonderful Valentines day or Galentine's day! My lovely lover surprised me on Valentine's day with a homemade voucher to the Harry Potter Studios! I'm definitely thinking of saving this one for November when it's all Christmassy. Come to think of it February was a pretty busy one for me which I'm guessing is why it went by in such a flash so without further ado lets get into Feb.

How To Make The Most Of 3 Days In Budapest | Travel Diary 2019


If you’re asking yourself, “is 3 days enough time to spend in Budapest?”, the answer, in
short, is probably no. However, you can totally see everything you need to see within 3 days!

The abundance of ancient architecture, delicious cuisines, beautiful views from the hillside, and friendly locals by the end of my visit, it was up there with my top favourite cities in the world. Trust me, you will fall in love with Budapest like I have. Which is funny because I visited back in 2014 and felt completely different! I was only there for 1/2 a day and was definitely staying in a strange area which left me disliking Budapest. I am soo glad I decided to pay another visit and truly allow Budapest to change my mind. There’s so much character to the city and so much to do it really does cater to every traveller.
Keep reading if you'd like a cheat sheet and a full guide to spending 3 days in Budapest!

January 2019 | Lifestyle.

Hello everyone and happy February! I'm sure most of you are happy to see the backside of January but in all honesty, I'm neither here nor there. January didn't feel at all slow to me which is a first.

Welcome to my first monthly blog post of the year. Like I said in my Farewell 2018 post something I would like to start doing throughout 2019 is to document every month. I reckon I'll really thank myself for these at the end of the year when I get to look back at everything! And who knows- someone out there might even enjoy reading this! I know I love being nosey about other peoples favourites and what they've enjoyed through the months.

So without further ado let's get into it.

Farewell 2018. | Lifestyle.

Hello! Welcome back to my blog and my first post of 2019. I cannot believe it's already 2019 and even more so cannot believe my last blog post was back in March. I'm usually quite good with keeping my blog up to date but it seems as if I've blinked and the year has disappeared.

Seeing as I didn't post what I got up to throughout the year 2018 let's have a little catch-up and see if I managed to meet any of the goals/aspirations I had planned. If you'd like too, you can catch up on what they were here!

How was 2018 for me? I have to say it was a pretty damn good year! I got to travel, see faraway family, do some pretty cool things in-between as well as have new beginnings like starting my new job. 

So without further ado here are a few key moments of 2018.

March Haul Featuring Topshop, Asos and Missguided | Fashion.

Hello, my name is Sade and I am addicted to buying clothes I don't need. No, this is not something I tell myself. This is often what I hear coming from the direction of my partner. In his defence, he's so true (not something I'll be admitting to him). But in my defence, I so do need 10 pairs of blue jeans in different shades of blue because certain colours go with certain tops and yes I need that top because it'll match these jeans...

Enough was enough so I made a deal with myself to ONLY have a treat month every other month. Then the months in between I can save all my money. To be fair I always put money aside every single month anyway. However... the deal was made worse when I said to Alex I'll make a bet with you that I don't spend any money until June! So here I am making this haul blog post as a way to... I guess remind myself of this months treats to stop the spending! To keep myself sane I'll be making blog posts of 'wish lists' so that come June if any of those items are available they're going straight in my basket!!

On to the haul.

I still remember the days I prayed for the things I have now. | Lifestyle.

Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It's been a really productive Saturday morning for me, the laundry is washed and drying, I cleaned and tidied my bedroom and finally did all those annoying little jobs that needed doing but I just kept putting off. It's currently snowing outside, I've got incense on the go with a real 'feel good' film on. It just seemed the perfect setting to sit down and do a catch up with my blog.

I guess one of the reasons I felt compelled to sit down and write this blog post is to maybe... remind myself of the positives in my life. Recently, I've been feeling more on the negative side. I seem to feel a little lost at the moment. I'm 25, always putting myself down for not 'earning enough money', I still don't have enough money saved for a house, I'm not fully working within a 'career', I've got no oomph to get up and go in the mornings. It seems all I do is push myself out of bed, crave the evenings and long for the weekends. Enough is enough.

Farewell 2017. | Lifestyle.

As I sit here and think back over the year and what I have accomplished, I can't help but have a smile on my face. Many people have shared posts on social media on why their year was amazing, or in some cases maybe not their best year. It can be difficult at times not to focus on the negatives and what we didn't achieve. All I saw throughout the year were people my age or younger getting engaged, buying houses, having children etc and it's so easy to get caught up in comparing our lives to that of others. But despite all of that, I have had a wonderful year filled with many amazing memories and resolutions I managed to attain!

So, here are a few key moments that have made my year one of the most smooth sailings yet. I wanted to write this post because I love to appreciate these moments especially in times of need. It's far too easy to focus on what we don't have and it's good to be reminded of the positives as well as set new goals.

Here are a few key moments of 2017.
