Tree House Weekend Away x

Hello Everyone! Hope you're all okay.

A couple weeks back myself and Christian (my boyfriend) stayed in a TreeHouse for a weekend as my mum bought me this as a gift on my 18th birthday. (Thanks mum xxx)

I thought that I would keep it short and sweet and show you a few images from our weekend as we also went to a petting farm and fed lots of lambs, sheep, goats and kids. (Kids are baby goats if you didn't know.)

Here are some photos of our beautiful weekend away x


Sorry its a short blog post but I was too busy having fun to take a lot of photos!

Thanks for reading x

& thank you mum for a lovely weekend away xx

Easter Weekend x

Hey guys, hope you all had a lovely Easter Weekend! x

During the week I was making a Easter hamper for my boyfriend to give to him on Sunday. I used an empty open cardboard box, wrapped it in a super cute paper with puppies on it and for the base I bought shredded paper that looked like straw. I then filled it with lots of sweets and chocolates that I know he loves and one big Easter egg.

On Saturday it was my sisters birthday and we all went out for dinner at TGI Fridays. We had a great night and to top it of the cake was amazing. She loved her presents and we all had a good laugh.

For Easter I received a few lovely Easter eggs and two Lush bath bombs that I cannot wait to use and review!

And to top it all off for the next three weeks I am off college and I will be relaxing myself but I'm also going to try and get organised.

How was your Easter weekend, what did you do?

P.S. Do you like how I've changed my blog? The grey theme and my new header is my favorite.

A Little Valentines Help From Me x

Hey guys!

This Sunday is Valentine's Day. You may be stuck on what to buy your loved one... but luckily you have me to save you just in time.

For the Ladies;

Under a Tenner- 

Chocolates. EVERY GIRL LOVES CHOCOLATE. Plus their quite cheap, just go into your local supermarket and you can pick up a cute box for around £3-£7.

Flowers. This is an obvious one so lets skip the chit chat.

A Cute Fluffy Teddy Bear. Now these can range in size and price, the bigger the better right? ;) Anyway you can get cute ones from a fiver up.

Cook Her A Romantic Meal. Now if you really can't cook then don't try as you may burn the house down but if you can, you should know her favorite meal by now so get the oven on. 


Wine. Now I'm not a lover of wine but some women are, so treat your loved one.

Candles. You can get some beautiful smelling candles from places like Yankee and they really do change the room just by the scent. I definitely recommend candles.

Get Something Personalized! On places like Ebay and Not On The High Street, you can get some lovely personalized items such as canvas' and bracelets. 

£20 and above-

Perfume. Either get her usual favorite or risk your life and get a new one that she may or may not like.

Jewelry. This really does vary in price, you can even get jewelry under £20. I would recommend going to H Samuel or Warren James. They have lovely pieces for a reasonable price.  

Purse or a Handbag. This is a much more expensive present but I would recommend a brand like Micheal Kors or shopping in John Lewis but a cheaper alternative is TKMaxx as they also have lovely bags and purses.

For The Men;

Under a Tenner-

Chocolates. Who says that men don't like chocolates too?!

Razor. Why not treat your man to a razor. They will love it lol. These come in different prices comparing on if they're electric and different brands.

Boxers and Socks. They're handy and I'm sure he would love it.


After Shave. There are MILLIONS of different scents and lets face it... men aint that fussy.

Clothes. A nice top or jumper can always be handy as you can never have too many clothes.

Wallet. Wallets can vary in price, most of them are over £20 but going somewhere like TKMaxx, you can find some really nice leather wallets for a good price.

£20 and above-

Jewelry. Yes, men do like jewelry... well some of them do. A chain or a ring can be bought for different prices depending where bought.

Video Games. All consoles games and video games will vary in price but most of them can be quite expensive. Shops like Game and your local supermarket can sell them and sometimes they have really good deals and discounts so keep your eyes peeled!

AND that is all. I hope everyone has a lovely Valentines Day and I hope you enjoy it with your loved one's!

Heelloooo everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! Also Happy Monday! I am super sorry that I haven't been posting for aaaaagggggesss but as the title says, I am still alive lol.

I have BIG and exciting news that I can not wait to tell you which is..... I have made my first YouTube video! I really wanted to start doing YouTube for ages and now I've done one video, its making me want to do a load more! A lot of people pushed me further to start YouTube such as the youtubers that I love and make me laugh, books I have read and my family members. Even starting this blog ( even though I have been very badly in-active on it) has made me want to do more as I just love it.

I have literally just uploaded my first video which is ' My Everyday Makeup Look' and I hope you all like it! If you do, send me a message or comment either on this blog post or video to tell me what else you would like to see.

Sorry its such a short blog post, and I am also sorry for not posting in ages but I promise I will be much more active from now on! Roll on 2016!

First Driving Lesson!

Helloooo everyoooneee!

Happy Monday! haha only joking but I actually had a very happy monday today because (as the title gives it away) I had my first every driving lesson! yaaay!

I was SUPER excited today and just couldn't wait to get on the road but I do have to admit, for months and months I was absolutely PETRIFIED.

When it actually came around to booking my first lesson, that's when I got really excited and I just said to myself, 'look at all the people out there that drives, like c'mon Destinee' lol.

But seriously, if anybody out there that is by any chance reading my blog and feels very nervous or scared about driving, just have one lesson! It's not as scary as you think it is plus, if your lucky like me, you'll get a lovely driving instructor and they will help you control your fear.

Sorry it's a short one today, I was just super excited! 

Do you drive? Tell me about your driving experiences!xx

P.S. I was really considering not putting this photo up but its the only one I had haha x

What's In My College Bag?x

Hey Guys, hope your all doing well!

Today I am giving you a tour of my handbag that I take to college everyday and all of my essentials in it! Enjooooy!

I bought my handbag from Primark, costing me £9 which is a total BARGIN! It's fits everything I need and yet I still have lots more room in my bag to throw something else in it. It also came with a pouch that matches and can clip onto the strap which is very handy for me because then I can put all my little things such as my antibacterial gel, hairbands, a pink love heart compact mirror, Zoella 'Let's Spritz!', a mini little deodorant and other things that come in use when I'm out.

I then have my books that I use everyday. From left to right, my 'Pin me, Friend me, Follow me, Like me' Notebook made by Jim Chapman. I find this notebook super cute and I use this all the time, infact I have two, one for college and the other just for notes. Next to that is my 15-16 page a day Diary by Collins to note down if I have to finish anything off at home or just for reminders. I also have my timetable and other important pieces of paper in there. Lastly I have the book I'm currently reading, stuffed in my bag. I bring a book everywhere with me and I have been reading this book for sooooo long but I never have the time to finish it! It's called 'Evermore' by Alyson Noel and it's just an amazing book and well worth the buy!

Lying around my bag I also have key's with keyrings from Brighton, the Brighton Wheel, a Shamrock, Disney Land Paris, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 'Golden Ticket' and my USB so my keys are the most awkward and difficult things to carry around.

I have a cute pencil case with Bokeh effect love hearts all over it. Inside is pretty boring so I won't waste my little fingers typing lol. I also have the usual stuff that I have to have at college like a ruler, a folder and colouring pencils because you know, you need them at some point lol.

And that is pretty much it, I use this bag everyday and I find it is perfect because it is not too big but yet fits everything in it!

                                             What do you have in your college/school bag?

Starting a College Full of Animals! x

Hey Guys!

So this week I started my new college! I'm studying Animal Management and even though I've only done one week, it is so fun and I'm having such a great laugh.

I've made awesome new mates called Niamh, Lucy and Charlotte and we just have the best laugh during lessons and on our lunch break. I'm so glad I've met these girls, they're so lovely.

The next bonus is the fact that I'm studying animal management I get to spend most of my time with animals. The animals we have in our college are chickens, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, pigs, ferrets (they're so cute but smell SO bad!), rats, chinchillas, bearded dragons, snakes, turtles, tortoises, tarantulas, cockroaches, giant African snail, budgies, stick insects and a few more. We are also getting, within the year, goats and geese and ducks,

I honestly LOVE my college and my friends and have never felt happier and most welcome in a school environment.

P.S Lucy does have a head, she just thought the puppy was cuter lol

How I Deal With Panic Attacks x

Hey Guys! Hope your all doing good!

This blog is a bit on the down side :( (sorry) but hopefully I can reach out to the people that feel the same as I do.

Cutting to the chase, lately I've had quite bad anxiety and been having a lot of panic attacks. Sometimes there's a reason for getting a panic attack, for example I would be on a packed train and feel like something bad is going to happen to me because there are so many people on this train that I don't know. But thinking about it now (when I don't feel panicy) I know nothing AT ALL is going to happen to me! The millions of different people that go on all different trains all around the world and nothing at all happens to them! I suppose I just think of the bad stuff all the time because when you watch the news or pick up a newspaper the headlines are always a bad story. My Nan always used to say 'I don't watch the news because its always bad news' But that's because they don't give enough credit to the people that save lives and the people with good hearts, which there are millions of people out there.

I could also get panic attacks over the fact if I took a full breath but feel like it wasnt full enough, I would feel like there's something wrong with my lungs or something? It is a horrible feeling and situation to be in but honestly nothing at all is wrong! Your body and your breathing is perfectly fine, it's all in your head. Anxiety can't kill you, neither can a panic attack.

I sometimes feel like I'm stupid telling people that I can't go places because I'm too scared to go without someone really close to me like my mum but the truth is I'm not normal but neither is anybody else in the world. Everyone has their downs and their ups and that just makes them who they are.

I hope this helped anyone in the same situation that I'm in.
Let me know if you suffer with anxiety and how you deal with it.

Get to know me a little more x

Hey Bloggers!

I know I said I'd upload once every week but I just couldn't resist not blogging, I LOVE it!

So you guys don't know much about me so here's a little bit for you to find out...

I'm a 17 year old girl living in London. Most of my time is spent with my boyfriend (mostly watching him play football for his team, on fifa and watch him watch football on tv lol) , my time is also spent alot by gaming on my ps4 and new computer. I play games such as GTA, COD, Gary's Mod, Team fortress 2, Minecraft and the list goes on.....

I also manage to fit in my life the fact that I'm a BIG youtuber fan ! My favorite youtuber is Oli White but a close second is KSI and The Sidemen but I still really like Zoella, Louise, Joe Sugg& Joe Weller, Caspar Lee and a few more.

 I hope this will bring me closer to other youtuber fans hopefully all over the world! Would love to hear about who your favorite youtubers are and what you get up to in your spare time!

Bye for now xx
