Minnies | Komorebi

Heyo

I have discovered a new beautiful word which describes something that is barely noticeable but yet so magical.

'Komorebi'
(n.) sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees.


As you walk in the great outdoors, take a moment to appreciate your environment.
Think how it makes you feel.

The sunlight is so powerful, it is there as a guidance, as a source of warmth and happy holiday memories. 

What's a unique word you like?


Minnies | Summer Solstice 2016

Heyo

Today is a unique event, it was the full strawberry moon which would be seen in the sky marking the longest day of the year.
This hasn't happened since 1948 apparently! It will be many many years before we get the opportunity to see it again. 


Here are some of the low quality photos I managed to take! However, I really enjoyed seeing it for myself. It shone a beautiful honey colour, the ambience of it really stood out and it was so nice to see!

Very romantic looking. 

Let's hope we will eventually get our hot days to enjoy now its officially summer! 

Night friends, see you tomorrow 


Birthday Time!

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

Heyo!

It's my birthday!! Woohoo!
I had so many lovely cards and gifts from everyone which was so lovely, I woke up super excited for the day ahead. I had a special breakfast in bed too and I had my favourite.


 Mum and I packed away our books, some flip flops, a towel and our swimming costumes...
Can you guess where we went? To a spa!
It was a spa and afternoon tea day which mum and dad had arranged for me which was so nice of them! The place we went was very scenic and automatically had a relaxing feel to it as we arrived.


On our arrival we got some drinks! (Spritzers)


Afterwards we got shown out lockers where they provided robes and lotions, cold water and towels. All presented so beautifully. We got our swimsuits on and went to the area with the Sauna, Jacuzzi and Swimming Pool. We had a swim first and the water was so lovely and warm but of course my favourite was the Jacuzzi. It was really soothing particularly with my bad left arm, it managed to make it feel very relaxed. There was lots of women in this leisure area with us whilst all the men (their husbands mainly) were outside on their buggies playing golf. We got chatting to some of the women who was there and all were so lovely. Sometimes it's really nice meeting new people and having long conversations, even though you know you will never perhaps see them again, anyone else get what I am saying here? :)



Sandwiches were presented on the bottom layer, a lovely selection of different bread and fillings. The next plate was my favourite, fresh scones with a cream dip of strawberry jam- scones are one of my absolute favourites! The cakes were also pretty much perfection, each and everyone was made specially at the spa and they were really delicious! Every bite that was taken was filled with such delight, each was different, I particularly enjoyed the fairy cake with the white cream on top! The food was split between us all- (I am not that greedy!) and we relaxed in the beautiful tea room with our hot drinks!








Here I am with my wonderful daddy. 
There I am sat with my makeup free face right here on the internet...oh dear!
Mum and I got our robes on ready for our treatments, I had the facial.
It really benefited my skin.. but let me set the scene.

The beautician came in and showed me to the seat which I was to lay down on, filled with pure white towels, it was really comfy. I took off my robs and got under the towels and she entered back in the room, lights were dimmed down, it was quiet with calm music to help unwind (the song that I really liked was "Echoes In The Rain- By Enya" check it out its a really nice song, I might start using it for my yoga exercises! It was a mixture of face masks, warm and cold water with creams and oils it was heavenly
.
 It was the best treatment I have ever received, it made me feel so relaxed and I never wanted it to end, ever since I have seen so much more improvements with my skin.
 I bought the miniature version of what she used on my face so I could continue to keep my skin hydrated to the best of it's ability as usually I have quite dry skin (will be in my birthday haul).
 Any problems with acne or dry/ oily skin I highly recommend to have a facial and see what they suggest for your specific skin type.

Mum had a pedicure which included a massage, removal of hard/ rough skin and to have her nails filed, buffed and painted into this radiant shade of pink, it looked really really nice.
Funny little story, as she had her robe on she forgot that her nails would take around 4 hours to dry so she couldn't get her jeans back on without smudging it! She had to walk out with a towel around her to the car haha ! We all had a giggle about that.



Later on we all got somewhat glammed up. Look how lovely mummy looks!  
We were all really tired at this stage though, noticeable? Heck we didn't mind! It was a blast.

I was able to wear my new Pandora jewellery which I am really loving right now. Look out for my next blog post to see some other things (birthday haul) that I received as gifts.


For my birthday I wanted nothing fancy for my meal, I had already enjoyed such lovely foods ranging from rich to sweet to top- class deliciousness!
I have had so much Cake and Chocolates, and more Cakes and more Chocolates over my birthday party period. This simple pasta and meatballs dish at our local pub was just right. I wouldn't have ended it any other way!

I apologise for the low quality guys! Not only was it getting late at this point but also today was about relaxing and for all of us to enjoy ourselves without worrying about good lighting quality! 
I have some amazing memories of how my parents made sure I had the best 18th Birthday ever! I spend my first ever day at a spa with my beautiful mummy and I couldn't have wished for a better day.

Even the cake they had put lots of thought into, it's really yummy! 
It was specially made..I felt really bad cutting it but the whole of my birthday with the party included was perfection in every detail. I was really special and I will forever treasure the day.


I suppose I can legally do a lot more things now ey? 
Will be interesting entering the adult world, but I will still always and forever be a child at heart.

I have AmeBella as my pride and joy to hopefully keep me somewhat sane alone the way, haha!


Ciao !
