Hi Everyone! October is over and it’s been an exciting month for us here in the Kennedy-Hinds household. I love busy months where they fly by and you realise how much has changed in just a month. October : we got a dog As you may have already read, we got a dog. Robbie has been with us nearly a full month and it has been a massive change to the household. It’s weird going from only having yourself to think about, to waking up at specific times to let the dog out, walk him and give him his breakfast.…

Meet Robbie! Adopting a westie from Brysons Animal Shelter

Meet Robbie! Adopting a westie from Brysons Animal Shelter

SAY HELLO TO ROBBIE HINDS, our little westie ! This has got to be the most exciting post I’ve ever written on my blog. I own a dog. As you all know, Rob and I are westie daft. You only have to look at our instagrams and see all the photos of Teemo that we borrow using Borrowmydoggy, to see how much we love this breed. Borrowing Teemo for the past year has given us a taste of the westie owner life, their behaviours, their traits and just how loveable they are. We have been keeping an eye out for…

Exploring Derwent County Park & Our 1 Year Borrowmydoggy anniversary!

Exploring Derwent County Park & Our 1 Year Borrowmydoggy anniversary!

Hello there! Oh it feels so good to be writing back on the blog! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been trying to survive my masters dissertation as well as resits. Thankfully, I’ve only got another couple of weeks to go to finish my dissertation. It feels so good to just write for the sake of writing, not for academic reasons. So todays’ blog post is a super happy one for me and I couldn’t wait to share it. Teemo has been staying over a couple of nights a week, for the past couple of…

Life Update: Moving in together!

Life Update: Moving in together!

August has been a whirlwind of a month. So much has gone on but it also feels like it’s gone so quickly and barely anything has happened? I honestly can’t believe it’s September at the weekend. As you may have seen elsewhere on my social media, Rob and I have been getting ourselves ready to move in together. WE MOVED IN TOGETHER!  I feel like I’ve been droning on about moving in together for months. It felt really strange not having a super strict deadline to move out by. The end of my tenancy is in the first week of…

Why I love Harry Potter & the Harry Potter tag!

Why I love Harry Potter & the Harry Potter tag!

Books are one of my favourite things. It’s something I’ve wanted to blog about more but never really thought people would be interested in? But as my blog is growing and my life is changing, I’ve decided to make different types of posts! This change got me thinking. How can I have a blog and have not talked about Harry Potter yet?! So I thought I would share with you my book journey this year and a few answers from the Harry Potter Tag! ( I just googled it, if you want to try it!) Harry Potter was such a massive…

My Camera Kit Wishlist & Why I love Vlogging

My Camera Kit Wishlist & Why I love Vlogging

Cameras have always been a central part of my life. I used to beg to use the family camera on holiday, and now I use them in my degree and freelance work and of course, for my blog. My camera collection keeps growing and I am always chasing a new lens, new camera or new editing software. As much as I love my DSLR and my vlogging camera, I’m always looking to up my game. Now that I’m trying to work more on my Youtube channel, I’m looking to try new things. One of those new things,  is a good…

Brunette to RedHead with Schwarzkopf Live Real Red

Brunette to RedHead with Schwarzkopf Live Real Red

Over the years, I’ve been a brunette, a blonde and a redhead. My hair has become an utter mess due to constant experimentation with it, and I’ve been hating it for awhile now. I was trying to grow my natural hair colour out, in the hopes that I would have long, healthy, natural hair in time for my graduation. Or, at the very least, have natural hair that a hairdresser could transform in November, in time for my birthday and master’s graduation. But spending months scraping my hair back into a bun to hide the ever-growing mess was another thing…

Diary: A Walk in Blaydon Burn

Diary: A Walk in Blaydon Burn

  Now that I have more free time due to the summer holidays, it’s got me thinking that I’m not writing enough. I miss the days when a blog was about recording your life and passions and not just adverts, marketing or discussing big issues or competition. I loved reading blog posts that were just people talking about their everyday lives and in the spirit of the first blogs I ever read, I’ve decided to revive the ‘diary’ tag on my blog. Friday 22nd June 2018- Going for a walk  Today has been wonderful. You know one of those easy…

How looking after a dog improved my mental health at university…

How looking after a dog improved my mental health at university…

It’s now June and I’ve been living pretty much the same routine since last September but still haven’t blogged about it! If you’ve seen my BorrowMyDoggy  posts you’ll know that I’ve been looking after other people’s dogs for the past couple of years at university. I also try to talk openly about my mental health and in particular how it affected me during my degree and I realised that having time with a dog was a great way to improve my mental health. So here are a few things I’ve taken from borrowing a dog: 1. Taking care of something…

The Google Pixel 2 Party with InTheFrow!

The Google Pixel 2 Party with InTheFrow!

Friday was a night I’ll never forget. I met my biggest blogging inspiration, Victoria Magrath, or as we all know her, InTheFrow. I still can’t quite believe this happened to me! It’s such a weird thing to know that I met someone who I admire so much. Even stranger to think I’m writing a blog post about being at her event! This was definitely not a blog post I ever imagined writing but it is definitely one of my favourites! On Friday morning I found out I had won a place at her Google Pixel 2 Party in Birmingham. I…
