Life through a lens - My Trip to New York and South Carolina

This summer was one that I had been looking forward to for a long time.I knew that it would be worth it after all my exams and the hard work at school and it defiantly was.My Dad decided to travel to somewhere different than Spain or California, the past few years we have drove to Spain and the years before that we took a road trip around California and Nevada but my dad wanted to go to somewhere different.Our family love to relax and just chill around a pool or on a beach.Me and my sister love the water and getting our tan on.We also wanted somewhere which had a lot of places to experience and be a proper tourist, I also wanted to have a photo party with the camera I had received for my Christmas present.So we decided to go to New York, that was the tourist part of our trip and then South Carolina which was the relaxing part of our trip.
South Carolina was beautiful, it reminded me of Florida with the humid weather and what the location was like.We stayed on Hilton Head Island, it had the most beautiful beach and the hotel we stayed at was amazing, one factor was probably the breakfast buffet waffles,American cereal and pancakes it was a party in itself.The pool was really nice and there wasnt a lot of noise so it was really relaxing.The pool side bar had really nice food and it played music which created a really cool vibe.There were lots of activities that you could do such as the gym,cycling around Hilton head island and arts and crafts for children.We decided to go on a family bike ride, it was so much fun the only drawback was that it was so hot but It was so cool to see the sites of Hilton head even though we did get lost and there were alligators near us.The restaurants were amazing, we went to a steakhouse which was lovely and I found a love for the olive garden which was in the outlet mall where there was an Abercrombie outlet and polo Ralph Lauren, just to name a few.The best deal I got was a pair of Abercrombie and Fitch lounge pants which were originally $50 and I got them for $4.90 which is around £3 I obviously jumped at the chance of buying those and got two pairs.I also got a gorgeous dress which was $20.Overall South Carolina was amazing and I will defiantly be visiting there in the future.
New York on the other hand was completely different to South Carolina, I have never felt so overwhelmed in my life.After a few days we did get used to the business but never got used to the amount of walking.Most of this part of the holiday was dedicated to site seeing Inwhich we did a lot of that.We visited the main sites like the statue of Liberty,Ellis island,empire state building and ground zero.Each one of them were amazing especially ground zero which was very eye opening and did bring a tear to my eye when I actually thought to myself that the tragic event of 9/11 happened where we were standing.The shopping was awesome Unfortunatly we weren't able to visit soho but we did go to the rocker fella plaza and shops on 5th avenue.We stayed a couple of block away from times square which was so amazing the lights were crazy and there was always something new to look at.Every night we had dinner there and we found an olive garden,told you we were addicted.It was crazy how busy it was and a waiter said that this was their quite time of the year, my mouth dropped to the floor.You would think that since there were so many taxis in New York it would be easy to catch one, think again.For a family of five it was flipping hard.We did the subway one day and it was horribly overwhelming, one regret was that we went to a busy train station instead of a smaller underground one.Luckily this random lady helped us to where we wanted to go and it was relief when we arrived but then my sister,dad and mum got stuck on one side of the gates and me and my brother got stuck on the other,I can't even imagine what it would be like if I got lost in New York.
Overall my holiday was truly amazing and I am so thankful for the opportunity to travel to America and experience so much throughout my 16 years of living.I hope this has given you a small insight into my trip and I hope you enjoyed this blogpost.

Bye for now xx

17th Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is in one week and I thought I would show you guys what is on my birthday Wishlist.My Mum and Dad want me to get driving lessons, but being the non-confident person that I am, I'm extremely nervous to start driving and I'm rather sceptable about getting my hands on the wheel.My Mum loves getting me little things and she picks up little things here and there in different places we visit but she always asks me for a few things that I would like, so I thought I would give you an idea:

1. Being a girl I LOVE to shop, if I had an unlimited money source I know exactly where I would go .... Topshop.I love Topshop so much,every time I go into the shop I always find something new that I would love to have.One of the things on my list would be a voucher for Topshop or money so then I can go have some fun in Topshop. A couple of items I would love to buy is the Jersey skirt in Maroon and teal, I already have the grey and black one in which I love them to death and would have such a fun time styling them up.I love Topshop jumpers and always see a new one every time I walk in there so I would probably buy a jumper.

2.Im not usually a fan of Doc Martens but when I saw these online and on a YouTube video by Macbarbie07 I kind of fell in love with these shoes.When I see shoes or an item of clothing that I like I can always Imagine the perfect outfit which I would style it with.I think these boots would go great with a jersey skirt from Topshop and a big jumper tucked in and then a big snugly cargo jacket over it.They retail for £25 in H&M which is defiantly good compared the actual price of original Docs.Unfortunatly at the moment they are out of stock but I'm hoping that they come back.

3.The next item is an essential for the colder months in England.I saw this coat in the window of New  Look and really liked it,then i saw my friend had it and fell in love with it even more.It looks so warm and snugly and the quality is really good for the price of £45.99 .

4. As you may see in this blog in the near future you will know that I love nail polishes.I went to New York in the summer and went into American Apparel, the first thing I saw were the bright nail polishes on the counter, obviously I went for the neon colours.There was a deal on Inwhich if you bought three you got them for $15 instead of $18, I jumped at the chance.When we had purchased some nail polish remover in the middle of times square ( pretty cool I find) I started painting my nails with the neon yellow and fell In love with the way it looked and how tanned it made me look.I also purchased the neon orange and then a metallic purple just to change it up a bit.I have always wanted more since I bought the original 3 Unfortunatly in England they are £9 each which is extremely pricey but if I ever go back to America I'll have to stockup.

5. I love music so I added a couple of CD's to my list.Some of you may be dissapointed to here but I do have fan girl problems, dont worry im not crazy.I obvioulsy had to add One Directions's take me home CD to my list because I love their music but i also had to start practising for their concert next year.I also love Lawson and have added their debut album to my list, I have also added Taylor Swifts RED to my list because I love her so much and her music is awesome.I usually also ask for an Itunes voucher because I like a lot of music that come from youtubers who are mostly from America so their music isn't very easy to find CD wise so Itunes is the only way.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this little taster to my birthday wishlist and hope it has given you an idea of what I am like and my interests.Hope you have enjoyed this blog post and I will see you in my next blog.
