The Most Special Birthday With Spectrum Brushes

So on May 24th it was my 22nd birthday and I have to say, it was the best birthday I have had in my entire life. I had spent the beginning of the week back in Bristol with my friends and family which was lovely considering I rarely go back to Bristol anymore - I am fully adopted Welsh now. I was feeling super positive and couldn't wait to get to my actual birthday as I had the best plans lined up. I was invited to the first ever Cardiff Spectrum Brushes event by the most beautiful, down to earth team ever. Not only had I been invited, but a ton of my lovely blogger best friends had been invited too. We were so excited to finally catch up after spending hours talking to each other on WhatsApp.

Learning When To Take Time Out

I am 21, I have a bachelors degree, I started my career with a bang in a pretty impressive building, to build my experience further I did a three month internship on top of my full time job, i'm trying to blog with fairly decent content, keep up my social media platforms, maintain both close and long distance friendships and keep a positive mental attitude. Now, reading that I realise that I have a ton of stuff going on, and it really does take its toll on both my physical and mental health.

At the beginning of the year, I wrote about my new years resolutions , one of the goals I was aiming to achieve by the end of the year was to take more time out to focus on self love. I have to say that I am excelling at this. I've learnt the importance of self love, and how much better it can make me feel. For me, self love doesn't always mean having a pamper evening, or getting a good nights sleep. Although they're both important for your well being, I think there are different things that can add to your self love. I will give you an insight to the things I have been doing to improve myself as a young woman learning to get the best out of life.

Bootlegger Bar Cardiff Review

I bloody love a blogger event, and in my time I've been to a few cool ones. But in Cardiff, I always find that their either aren't any happening or I'm always at work when they're on. A couple of weeks ago, I was finally free for a blogger event and I am so so glad I got to go because I made some lovely friends and tasted some amazing cocktails. 

So, a bit of background. Bootlegger is a jazz, swing and 50's rock and roll themed bar. It is located on Womanby Street (Where Full Moon used to be) opposite Clwb Ifor Bach. We were greeted outside the the owner of the bar, Lee. He explained to us that Bootlegger was formed in Bristol and is very successful. Bootlegger opened in Cardiff about two weeks ago now and has already had 2000 people through its doors. 

We were so eager to get inside and have a look round. I absolutely loved the decor of the bar, it was full of hanging lights, brickwork and photos. There are two main bars inside, the Gin Bar and then the Moonshine Bar. We headed down to the Moonshine Bar after taking a ton of photos inside.
