June, a total whirlwind as they say. Family birthdays, deadlines, days out and holiday memories it may have been crazy but there was lots of fun things packed in along the way. With deadlines all coming to an end June was the time to breathe a little sigh of relief and dream about a good nights sleep once my mind remembered how to stop a little.

Ocean World | Dominican Republic

The last days of April brought absolutely insane hot days and tropical storms of an evening. We decided to take a day out from the picture perfect Dominican beaches and head over to Ocean World Adventure Park in Puerto Plata.

We booked a day trip via Thomas Cook, so all we had to do was get up early ready to be picked up for a day full of fun. Ocean World is set aside a beautiful marina and casino both of which you can visit during your day.

Five ways to beat exam stress locked in a bow blog

Exams and deadlines are tough and stressful for anyone no matter what age, from school, to uni or in the workplace. Added pressure can affect people in many ways. I have always been ok when I have stepped into the exam room but the weeks preparing beforehand were always a struggle. It is important to remember that this stress won’t last forever however hard it may seem right now. You will come out the other side and be proud of yourself for going in their and doing all you could.

My Little Box | Fresh Roses | Pantone Colour Swatches

April for me has been a total blur, a washout of month and one I don’t really want to repeat. Full of uni deadlines and ill health beyond my control. However not to be a negative nelly as we don’t like her. We are four weeks closer to summer with one deadline to go and fingers crossed I am over the worst illness for now. It’s crazy writing this the day after we had snow in England but the sunshine months are literally around the corner, I am that excited I could pop. Ha!

I started my Instagram logs last month and it seemed to go down well so I thought I would share all the best bits of this month too, I wouldn’t want you to miss out now. For such a weird month my feed turned out to be a pastel lovers dream. There is nothing I love more than giving gifts and when you find a cute card it makes the treat all the more special. The beginning of the month brought glorious sunshine and a rare free day which meant basking in the rays and drawing pictures in the sand.

With a quick switch in the weather, cosy indoor evenings meant I could catch up and delve into my subscription boxes and what a treat that was, little surprises can brighten up anybody’s day. Despite the crazy weather beautiful blooms of all kinds have been appearing, gorgeous scents and spring like colours, my fave! Talking of colours, I had a special delivery from Pantone, the masters of colours. Many of you may think I am crazy crushin’ on these, but what you don’t know is they mean the start of very big things in Summer so they were super exciting for me.

How did you April turn out?  Any good thoughts to share with us all?
