Youtubers & Bloggers that I LOVE

I could sit at home all day catching up on Youtube video's, I add so many to my watch later list! And when these people have Blogs too...I wouldn't be able to leave the house for days trying to keep up!

Today I felt like sharing the love and letting you know of some of my favourites :-) Maybe you've already heard of these people or maybe you will find someone new to follow?

1. ROCHELLE FOX 
Meditation, Fitness, Travel & Happiness
I only just found this girl the other day and fell in love with her channel straight away. She is very inspiring and after watching her videos, I felt so motivated. She teaches meditation and has definitely got me into it now. I love the way she edits her video's and the filter she uses is so cool, her travel vlogs are just amazing. If you like travel photo's you should see her Instagram...its like a world of amazingness :-D

2. JOSIE || FASHION MUMBLR
Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle
I have followed Josie for a little while now. She is amazing with her fashion and I really love her style. I feel like she puts so much effort into creating the best blog posts and youtube video's, she uploads regularly too so I really admire her for all the hard work she puts in. Lately she has been sharing a lot of travel vlogs including America which is one of my fave places to see, I could watch any America vlogs and always get excited to see the Hollywood sign or palm trees again and again! :-)
Josie also takes great Instagram photos, always so beautifully taken.

3. LYDIA ELISE MILIEN

I haven't been watching Lydia for very long but once I found her I got hooked. She is extremely lovely to watch, so down to earth and has really amazing makeup and hair :-)
She shares really great fashion on her youtube channel along with some vlogs which are always my favourite to watch. She edits her vlogs together really well and they are just so enjoyable to watch. Go check her out and you will also be hooked :-) And like everyone else I mention....another great Instagram account...blog..etc etc :-D

4. KAT APPLETON
Diet, Health, Fitness and Bodybuilding
Kat stood out to me because she also competes in fitness shows, although she does Figure and i've only done bikini I still love following her journey. She is a personal trainer and she uploads fitness video's on food, workouts and being on prep. I find other girls who compete so inspiring and love watching prep video's. She is also a lovely girl as well, so down to earth and real. If you want to find more girls that compete or upload fitness videos (from the UK) then she is definitely one to check out.

5. SUZIE || HELLO OCTOBER
Luxury beauty, style and some travel
I have been watching Suzie for quite a while now and have always loved her video's. She is so lovely to watch and down to earth and she does make me laugh too :-) Her makeup is always flawless and   her style is amazing. There isn't much    else I can say that I haven't already without sounding too repetative but another one you will really enjoy watching :-)

There are more that I could add to this list but I will keep it to 5 for now and maybe I will do another post like this soon. Make sure you check all these girls out and give them a follow, they all have blogs and other social media.

The Bloggers Ball Event in London | June 2016

This is my 3rd Bloggers Event that I have been to and I find them fun every time I attend :-)

It's a great way to meet new brands and bloggers too, it's definitely worth doing if you are fairly new to blogging. Even if you're not though there is still so much you can learn and so many amazing people you can meet each time :-)




This particular event was organised by the Blogger and Events organiser Scarlett, from scarlettlondon.com.  She did an amazing job organising The Bloggers Ball, i've been to a few events she put together before and it's always been a great experience. The next event run by her will be in September for the Annual Bloggers Festival (this one I went to last year) so make sure you follow her to keep an eye out for more on that :-) 

This event was held in the DSTRKT restaurant/lounge, one of London's most famous venues - www.dstrkt.co.uk


I got handed an event guide as I entered the venue which included information about the brands and a map so you knew your way around and where each brand was located.
The event started at 14:00pm until about 16:30pm, I arrived about 20 minutes past 2 and it was already really packed with people. I worked my way around the brands, having a little look at what they had and with a few, entering some competitions.






Take a look below at some of the brands I visited...
(If you click the brands websites it will open a new page to see more)

My favourite brand was probably the Seed and Bean...as you may (or may not) know...I do LOVE my chocolate! :-) Other than that though I did enjoy visiting Face Matters, Boho Betty and So...? perfume. There was plenty more brands that I haven't even included in this post.

Day Out at London Zoo | Sunset Safari


Last week on Friday I went up to London Zoo to experience Sunset Safari. It's held between 18:00pm - 22:00pm and only on selected evenings through June and July. As the sun goes down you can enjoy the fascinating animals, animal themed acrobats, delicious food and music.

I travelled up on the train and it's lucky I left early because quite a lot of trains were cancelled due to low staff and no conductors! The first stop we arrived at we all had to change trains as the train got terminated, luckily the rest of our journey wasn't too bad. I actually filmed a 'whats in my bag?' video on my youtube channel - here if you wanna see it? I filmed it the morning after i travelled to the zoo so its a travelling to London edition :-) 
It was also a nice warm day and luckily didn't rain like the weather was predicting.







I was one of the first people in the que for the guest list so once I came in it was very empty at this point but it was good to get in as soon as it opened to make sure I made the most of it.

It was set up so lovely, there were lights hanging in the trees, barbecue food being cooked, nice chilled music playing and there was this area (in the photo above) with chairs, cushions and a small tent area where someone actually played some music a little later on. It had a festival atmosphere which I loved...i've never been to a festival either and really want to experience one soon!

I've been to this zoo before but I still felt excited to see the animals again. Unfortunately the Gorilla kingdom was closed due to the baby gorilla's needing there sleep, it was a shame as did wanna see them, the Pandas were also unavailable :-(

Baby Meerkat
DID YOU KNOW? ...
Meerkats are found in hot, dry parts of Africa.
They live in family groups called packs, clans or mobs.

We tried to see the Tigers but none were to be seen so we decided to visit them again later. I loved seeing the baby animals, they are always my favourite! The baby meerkat above was so cute and reminds me of my dog cos he does the same thing, when he sits on my lap and wants attention he lifts himself up and tries to tap me with his paws just like a meerkat, he looks so cute when he does it!

After half the evening was done it was time to have a sit down and enjoy the atmosphere for a bit, it had got a lot more busier at this time.








I also went though the butterfly tunnel which when I last came to the Zoo I was too scared to walk through! So stupid because it was fine and I didn't even mind if a butterfly landed on me, they were so pretty to look at and got some really good photo's with the Macro setting turned on my camera :-)

I love animals, I had such a lovely time at the Zoo and it a different experience going in the evening.
Who here has also been to London Zoo? I would love to visit another Zoo, it's been really interesting finding out more about the animals too and I would love to see animals I've never seen in real life!
