Valentines day post.

Valentines day is just an excuse to get all soppy, eat lots of chocolate and have sex  a nice romantic meal. Chester and I aren’t really the type to celebrate valentines day, in fact, previous years have resulted in him buying me malteasers and then eating them himself.

This year, although we had planned we weren’t even going to celebrate valentines day Chester decided to buy me something which meant I had to run out and find some last minute gifts for him too. Also, Chester is a child when it comes to surprises so he gave me my gifts the night before. However, I loved them obviously, in true Chester style, they were randomly perfect. First of all the card…he hadn’t realised until he had sealed the envelope(I dont understand how this works…) it was in fact an easter card. But it was perfect non the less. The gifts were lovely, a bag from primark I had my eyes on for a while, rather expensive considering it was from primark, and some adorable lotus candle holders from tiger, like I said we aren’t really into the soppy crap so flowers are a no. I got him some malteasers to mix things up a little and a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Today, being valentines day(the actual day) we decided to take a nice little drive as it was a beautiful day and then head home to play GTA 5 for a few hours, then followed by Gourmet Burger Kitchen Burgers (vegetarian for me) and a snuggle with The Martian on dvd.

I hope everyone else is enjoying their valentines day, even if you are alone. Have a nice relaxing sunday everyone.

New year. New MEals.

So its a week into the new year and so far I have eaten as little meat as possible, I have been swapping meat for a vegetarian option when possible, also I was given an amazing spiralizer for Christmas which I have been using to swap spaghetti for spiralized vegetables with vegetarian bolognese sauce. I am feeling so good, I am less bloated, and I just feel so much better in myself. I would definitely recommend this ‘diet’ change for people who want to make a positive change in their lives this year, its not as hard as it sounds, and its super tasty. Ive also started making my own soups and I will be putting up recipes soon. I want to try at least one new meal a week and upload the recipe for you guys! I hope you enjoy this new journey with me.

   

  

  

  

  

Stay positive. 

  my goal for this year is to look after myself, look after my body, my mind and my soul. I want to become more positive and more outgoing and just take every chance I get to do something new. I am also going to try and incorporate more vegetarian meals into my diet and look after my body and my health. I just want to be the best person I can be. Not just for this year but for my future. I would really love the opportunity to create some commissioned artwork just to get my name out there, even small pieces, I want to create more craftwork whether it’s knitting or embroidery I am open to everything right now. If anyone has any projects for me to work on send me an email and we can work something out together. Jayde.trollope@gmail.com 
Let’s make this year the best. Together. Xo 

Supernatural winter finale. Spoiler alert 

Well wow what can I say I just finished the mid season finale of season 11 because I’m in the UK o watch it online so I’m way ahead of the U.Ks aired episodes so sorry for spoilers but oh my I’m so happy to have Mark Pellegrino back. I was basically Rowena watching it! I am such a spn fangirl and so far this season has been everything a fangirl could want! And dean you naughty boy!! If you haven’t watched supernatural before I promise you that you are missing out even my younger brother is now addicted!! Just gotta wait until 20.1.16 for episode 10!  

 

Surf and bounce.

So it’s been a crazy few weeks! After the horrible passing of my grandfather it was a crazy two weeks before I had planned a trip to a VW show at Caldicot with my boyfriend and his family. We spent most of the time drunk and I got a very crazy sunburn on my face. It was so wonderful to see so many great cars and people who are so passionate about their vehicles they spend so much time and money in making them look incredible. My boyfriend has a beetle and it looks so badass!! 

Anyways after a much needed weekend away it was back to reality for just a few days before we headed off to Newgale for a few days camping for my boyfriend and his twin sisters birthday. We had the best time and I made an attempt at surfing and paddle boarding which was insanely fun! We also spent an evening at Hangar 5 an indoor trampoline centre which was the funniest hour of my life.  If you are ever near an indoor trampoline centre and bored one evening I highly recommend taking a few friends and laughing for an hour straight. 

Newgale is beautiful. Even in the rain it was a perfect camping trip and I wish I could spend everyday there. I’m not ready for reality but i am just looking forward to our next adventure whatever it may be. 

Never say goodbye.

Unfortunately the past two weeks have been very difficult for our family as my grandfather sadly passed away. He was a wonderful man who was always behind the camera, constantly taking photos or videoing family events. He adored his technology and had to experiment with it all. It has been a very emotional two weeks and I haven’t been dealing with my emotions very well but I had the wonderful gift of my grandfathers camera equipment including various lenses and filters which has given me something physical to remember him by that I can use throughout my future work as an art student. Photography is a great love of mine and I can’t wait to experiment with everything I’ve been given. Nothing can fill the hole that this passing has left on our family but we have to hold on to all of the memories we have and keep him in our hearts. 

We’re gonna need more teeth.

After watching the much anticipated Jurassic world with my boyfriend we were on a dinosaur hype! Such a well put together movie with a great cast and a good use of humour at the right moments. I absolutely adore the jurrasic park movies and this one didn’t fail me. A few days after watching the movie I took a trip to town and had decided I wanted to find some little fun activities for me and my partner to give us something to do in the evenings. Well I took a chance on some small excavation kits I had found in Tiger and I was not disappointed! They were awesome. It turned out to be so much fun and so very satisfying to sit there for a while digging and brushing away at the clay block to reveal the most adorable little dinosaur toy. I know this sounds like something you’d buy children (and it is!) but who says you have to grow up, it was something small to pass the time which turned out to be a lot more amusing than I originally thought. Plus you get a cool little dinosaur at the end of it all. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who’s looking for something cute to amuse them for an evening as there are different types to collect. We had so much fun!
