It has been a while since I wrote a blog post as I have been living a super busy lifestyle these past 6 months: I mean, I don’t even know where to start but I feel as though, before I go straight into a post, I need to update you a little!

Quick life update:-

I am still working a full-time job and as you would have noticed, I have been doing a little less blogging and focusing on having fun rather than worrying about having deadlines to reach: as you would have seen from my Instagram, I have been jetting off around the world recently (with more holidays to come) and I have been spending a lot of time with my friends and family.  Ideally, I would have liked to have written some blog posts on some of my trips this year but I just simply haven’t got round to it but I am ready to get back into it!

Things I have learnt in the past 6 months that you need to remember:-

  •  Life is good: it may not always seem “good” but prioritise yourself and don’t take life too seriously.
  • Ensure you have a good friend/ or a good group of friends around you: these people will help you at your worst moments in life.
  • Make plans and maintain a good social life.
  • Avoid toxic people, toxic environments or anything that gives you a negative vibe.
  • Don’t settle for anything less than you deserve in life, whether that be a friendship or a job.
  • You only get one life, so do what makes YOU happy.
  • Brunch, a lot.. you won’t regret it!

Have a great start to the week and Happy Monday!

Lots of love,

Robynne Louise x

I have had a year full of ups and downs but it’s safe to say, I’ve come out on top. I’ve gained some, I’ve lost some and I have retained some, but as they say, everything happens for a reason and eventually, you’ll see the true colours in some people. I’m happier than ever, surrounded by the best people and the most amazing plans for 2018.

This year has been the BEST for my blogging life. I’ve worked with some amazing brands, attended some amazing events (which you would have seen), I’ve made some of the bestest friends I could possibly wish for (all thanks to blogging and events) and I’ve finally worked out an Insta theme – if you are into blogging, you will understand how important this really is… (hahahaha!!!)

I’ll start with the worst part of my year.. and this was definitely when I lost my beautiful Buffy in September, which broke my heart into 154685+ pieces but I will forever cherish the memories with her.  She has been my rock since I was a little girl.  You may think, I sound slightly crazy (unless you own a dog, because you will completely understand me when I say this) but she was so much more than “just a dog” to me, she was like a sister.  I adored her so much and she honestly had kindest heart.  Every single day I had her in my life, she made me feel so loved.  I love you my Buffy girl – miss you everyday, my little bestie! xxx

Finally, one of the best memories of the year was when my Dad sold his business.  Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures to go with this section just yet… but we celebrated with our close friends and family on New Year’s Eve!  Congratulations Dad xxxxxxx

I would also like to say a big thank you to all those who I worked alongside in 2017, I have loved working with you all – it has been so much fun.

And, a big thank you to all of those who invited me to their incredible events.  Events are definitely one of my favourite things… ever!  I have met the most amazing girls through these events and have certainly made friends for life!

Also, a big thank you to my mum, dad, sisters, boyfriend, Nan, Rhianna, Alicia, Charlotte & Tara who have put up with the constant photographs and helping me with my Blogging in general.  I definitely wouldn’t of had such a successful year without you guys!  Love you all xxx

Wishing you all lots of love, happiness and success in 2018 – thank you so much for your continued support from 2014 – 2017.  You will never understand how much I love and appreciate you all for sticking by me and supporting me and my blog!

Best wishes, always and forever…

On 1st September 2017,  we lost our beautiful baby girl, Buffy.  The past few days, I have felt completely empty.  I have never felt a feeling like loosing my dogs.  My heart has officially been broken twice now, due to the loss of two of my beautiful doggy friends – but the reassuring thing is, they are back together now.

Now, if you know me, you would know exactly how much my Buffy means to me.  She was F O R E V E R on my snapchat/instagram/facebook because I loved showing everyone how amazing and beautiful she really was.  She really was special, especially to me and she will always have a place in my heart.

It always hits me hard, when a dog passes away anyway, but when it’s my own, it takes me a long time to get over it.  I absolutely love dogs anyway, there is genuinely no better pet.  A dog isn’t just a “dog”..  a dog is part of your family which is something those who do not/have not had a dog will not understand.

Buffy was different to just any old dog mind you.  She was more like a human being, she used to show more love and affection than an actual person would.  She would even smile when she was happy, you could see a little grin on her face and the sides of her mouth would get higher and higher, the happier she was.  We really had a bond, like no other.  If I had, had a bad day or I was upset at all, it’s really like she got a vibe from me.. she would be waiting for me to come home and would not leave my side for the rest of the night, she would shower me in kisses and cuddle up to me all night.

My sisters and I would fight over her, E V E R Y single night because we all wanted her to sleep in OUR bedroom.  I am normally up the latest mind you, so I normally snuck her out when Georgia and Amelie were asleep (hehe).

Buffy was the most loving, kind and caring dog you could ever meet.  She had such a lovely temperament and anyone who would meet her, whether it was at home or in the town centre, would adore her.  She was so beautiful, inside and out.

Buffy is an unforgettable dog and will remain in my heart forever.  She really was my best friend.  She used to love my singing, she used to sit and listen and just wag her tail at me (which I loved, as not many other people like my singing!!!) I used to sit and rant to her for hours because she would look at me with so much love in her eyes and it felt like she really was listening to me.  I used to tell her I loved her and she would mumble back to me, which I have always believed was her telling me she loves me too.  My life feels incomplete without her and I feel so lost, but she is in a better place and is not suffering anymore.

Life isn’t the same same without her, 

She has left a massive hole in our hearts.  

Although we will never forget her, 

everyday is still so hard.  

We know she wouldn’t want us to be upset,

but we had to put her first.  

We never wanted to watch her suffer,

because she was just the best. 

I feel like I have lost my right arm, my sister and my best friend.  She was one in a million and we would never get a more loving and beautiful baby girl than our Buffy.   We couldn’t sit and watch her suffer, she didn’t deserve that.  She was my little baby.   She was with us for 12 years and she had the best life she could have possibly had.  But I still miss her like mad.  I can’t help but think about her every second, of every day.  I understand why we had to do what we done.  But obviously, I wish we could have our beautiful baby Buffy back.

♡ Sleep tight my beautiful Buffy girl, I love you forever ♡
