Metallic Mermaid Festival Look


Hello loves!
So festival season is upon aka my favourite season of the year! I get so super excited every year when all the festivals start because I love everything about it. The glitter, the clothes, the makeup, the music.... EVERYTHING haha. It's currently Coachella and I've been seeing so many photos to inspire me for this years festival looks. Seriously everyone is looking amazing this year!

Blogosphere Cafe



Hello darlings,
So I recently went to Blogosphere Cafe hosted by Blogosphere Magazine. It was a gorgeous sunny day in London which instantly put me in the best mood! I'd arranged to meet up with JuliaJess & Holly in Westfield Stratford City before the event. Make sure you check out all of their blogs because they're all amazing! No doubt Westfield was my idea but you can't take the shopping out of a shopaholic haha. After getting into London Euston I took the tube over to Stratford and met up with Julia first. We immediately went to the Missguided store which I was way too excited over haha! Then Jess joined us and we did some more shopping before heading over to Southwark on the tube to meet Holly.


We met Holly and headed over to The Gallery, Lumiere London. The last event which was Blogosphere Valentines Tea Party was in the same venue. Stupid me thought I still remembered the way even though I have absolutely no sense of direction at all haha! I definitely took us the wrong way and we ended up looking at maps on our phones... Which didn't really help because I can't read maps either haha. We did finally get there though! The venue was absolutely lovely we'd been in the Tropical Library last time but this time the event was being held in The Gallery. It was so lovely and spacious. Also the whole place was totally instagrammable.... I was loving it haha.


We started off with a little ice breaker activity which was fun. We had to go round and find what people blogged about and add them to the sheet we were given. It made starting conversations a whole lot less daunting and I really enjoyed. I always find meeting other bloggers so inspirational. I love seeing people talk about their blogs and writing with such passion. 

We were offered prosecco, soft drinks or tea and coffee. Plus there was snacks available too! How good do these donuts look. I don't know how I managed to resist not eating one haha. 


I also got a change to speak to everyone at So...? Fragrances again which was so lovely. I was lucky enough to get to have a look at all the new body mists that have been added to the collection. Pink Grapefruit is my absolute favourite! Definitely go and check out the body mists they are perfect for your handbag in spring and summer. They are available form both Boots & Superdrug.

It was such a good day and completely chilled. I really enjoyed it and I'm so happy to have met new bloggers who I'll hopefully see again soon. Thank you to everyone at Blogosphere for organising the event. I always have the best time and I can't wait for the next event again.

I hope you enjoyed reading,
Thank you,
Alice-Tilly

1 Year On...


Hello darlings,
This is such special post for me to write. You can probably tell by the title what this post is going to be all about. I can't believe today I've had my blog for a whole one year. I can honestly say I never thought I'd make it to this point. I'm not one to stick to things really, I never have been. There's something about blogging that I just can't get enough of.

This has changed my life.

I'm so forever grateful for all my readers, fellow bloggers, friends and family that have supported me and encouraged me right from the start. I couldn't do this without any of you... You are an absolutely huge part of why I do this.

The other reason well I do this for me.

I do this because I honestly and genuinely absolutely love it. This never feels like work or a hardship to me. Everything that I do the hours I spend doing things for my blog are always full enjoyment... Well except scheduling tweets haha! 

I'm more confident and I'm so much more happy now than I was before starting my blog. I don't have to pretend ever here and I'm just me. This has honestly changed me for the better. 

I'm so grateful for all the amazing things I get to do, going to events, working with brands and other bloggers... It really is amazing.

Just thinking back to the time I decided to start my blog right back when I first visited Brighton. My first post being Day Out In Brighton. I've grown so much and learnt so much since then. I want to continue to grow and to learn for hopefully many years to come.

My blog has given me a new lease of life. It's made me realise how much I want to do and achieve and all the things I haven't done yet. This next year I'm going to make sure I keep pushing myself to do all these things and to get me to where I want to be. I want my dreams to come true and I'm not ashamed of saying that. I'm driven enough to get there and I can't wait for you to continue on this journey with me.

It's never been about the numbers, the marketing or the business for me. I honestly have no clue about any of that kind of thing. To me it's about you, me and all the positivity and happiness that comes from this. 

Thank you so much for everything; Here's to another year!

Day Out In Bath OOTD
