How i celebrated my 21st birthday

So on May 15th 2017 i celebrated my 21st birthday. Well i say the 15th may but i pretty much celebrated all weekend and theres still more to come!






The day before my birthday me and my mum went shopping and brought loads of stuff for our holiday to Cuba. (there is a haul on my channel Lydia Anne on YouTube) it was a really sunny day in Cornwall and it was so nice to spend the time with my mum and Eloise. After shopping i went home to find one of my sisters had decorated my front room with balloons and also put photos on my wall in the shape of a 21. These were photos from when i was born right up until now, i literally am so soppy i cried my eyes out for about 30 mins i couldn't even talk, whilst i was doing that Decarlo couldn't stop laughing at me! When i finally managed to stop crying and actually look at the photos properly Decarlo told me we were going for a meal just me him and Eloise, so i had to go and wash my face and get rid of any make up that was left on my face (wh…

Baby update - 1 year old

Hi everyone, so i have been wanting to film a baby update for so long, and its so difficult to film a sit down video with Eloise as she just wants to get up and move about so i thought i would do a written version instead!

As you know from the title Eloise is now a 1 year old! Still feels weird to say and type it! So this post is just going to update you on whats shes been up to and what milestones shes been achieving!

Eloise started walking about 11 months old, she took a few steps one week and the next week she was walking from room to room so it happened super super quickly, and now as im writing this shes running around all over the place! We recently brought her first pair of shoes from clarks however one of them has now been lost, we have searched the house so we have come to the conclusion that its ended up in the bin!

We made the transition from baby milk to cows milk about 11 months old. She was already having plenty of cows milk in her cereal so we thought we would change he…

Sometimes its hard being a mum..

Now this is something i wouldn't usually dream of writing about but after watching the video of Kate Middleton speaking out about how hard being a parent is it gave me confidence to speak about my own experiences in a hope that it might help you reading this.

From day one of becoming a mum its super emotional, from the day you get that positive test right up to giving birth and forever after that, you are filled with so many different emotions and i dont think it ever goes away! Happy, nervous, excited, there are too many of them to list and everyone feels different.

When i was pregnant i had a really hard time controlling my emotions so i ended up talking to a counselor to try and let some of my feelings out, i was over the moon to be pregnant but at the same time i was worried about money, how me and my partner would cope, scared if i could even give birth to a baby.

I thought that it would get easier and those emotions would go away but they dont it just changes a little bit a…

Eloise's 1st Birthday

As most of you know we recently celebrated Eloise's 1st Birthday and just writing that now feels weird as its still not quite hit me that i have a 1 year old!!








On her actual birthday which was 24th March i took her to the Eden Project. Decarlo (my fiance) has just started a new job so unfortunately he had to work that day. So instead my grandad who me and Eloise are very close with took us. We had an amazing day if your not familiar with the Eden project do visit one of my previous posts talking about it in detail! We're very lucky to live near to such an amazing place that we can visit whenever we want! We had such a lovely day there and Eloise thoroughly enjoyed herself!


She had a few presents from family members to open on her actual birthday which was nice! We brought her a massive pool which she can use for swimming or we brought her a few bags of balls so she can have a ball pool in her bedroom which she is obsessed with! She was also given lots of bits and bobs for our…

Cooking in my tefal acti-fryer

So i am extremely lucky and for Christmas my parents brought us a tefal acti-fryer. They were brought one the previous year as a wedding present and absolutely love it. So a few times ive been over for tea and had chips in there and they were amazing, so they decided to buy me one as well!

So i thought in this blog post i would tell you how i use my acti-fryer and why i like it! Im thinking of filming a youtube video or two soon as well so you can see it properly! There are so many different things you can cook in the acti-fryer but these are the ones ive done and loved so far.

Roast Potatoes

So i used to get so fed up cooking a roast dinner and doing roast potatoes and them being caked in oil and be so greasy, then washing up afterwards was an absolute nightmare! But now i dont have that problem! So this is how i did them.

  Peel the potatoes and cut them into the size you want
• Put them in the acti-fryer
• Season them if you want, i usually put a few cloves of garlic in
• Add a spoon ful…

WE'RE GOING ON HOLIDAY

WERE GOING ON HOLIDAY!!! Im so excited its our first family holiday together and were going to CUBA!!!

So this weeks post is about my plans for the holiday (vlogging) and asking you guys some tips about travelling with a baby!

So the plan is to buy myself a go pro hero 5 the reason for this is its waterproof without a waterproof housing so i can vlog on holiday and it dosnt matter if it gets wet you can still hear me and all is fine and dandy! I will hopefully be vlogging most days whilst were away (were going for 2 weeks) however they will not be posted up whilst im away as i dont want to spend an hour or two out of my day to edit and upload. So as soon as i get back from holiday i will be editing the videos and they will go up every day from when im home. However i will probably schedule some beauty videos for whilst im away in case you lot miss me! The holiday vlogs will be going up on my vlogging channel and not my main channel so make sure you subscribe to it so you will be notifi…
