Hey Everyone! Welcome back to FleurDanielle. As you can see my blog has had a little bit of a makeover since my last post. I have been desperate for a new theme for ages and was looking at on different places until I came across the lovely 'Holly and Weave' design from the lovely guys over at Pipdig. I was drawn to it straight away and knew I had to have it. It only took 24 hours for the guys over at pip-dig to install it and I'm absolutely in love with how it's turned out. My header has been designed by the lovely Katie and I am absolutely in love with it. Make sure to check her out by clicking her name. Make sure you let me know if you like it down in the comments below. Anyway, back to the point of today's post.

Today I have been feeling a bit rubbish. It's one of the those days where my anxiety has been through the roof. I haven't felt good enough and I've been just really down about everything. I did have a different blogpost scheduled but I'm sitting in my room where I'm staying on holiday thinking about things and I thought you know what? I'm going to write a really positive post about all the things in life that make me happy. I've chosen to do 100 as why not go big and list everything that just makes me smile? I hope you enjoy this post.

It's my birthday! Today I turn 26 years old and as you're reading this I am currently spending my time in the Loire Valley in France on a family vacation. (Yes I know I'm not american I just prefer that word to holiday). I'm staying in a town called Anger which is the prettiest town I have ever seen. Make sure you're following me on instagram (xbellefleurx) and snapchat (fleur_danielle) to see all the photos and videos that I'll be posting over the course of my stay here. Today I thought I'd speak to you all about the weird and wonderful things I have learnt before I even reached 26. Many of these things I've learnt in the last year and many I've learnt throughout my whole life. I'm rambling on way to much so let's just get to the point of this post. I hope you enjoy it!

26 Things I've Learnt Before Turning 26

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all well and that you are all having an amazing weekend so far. I've only had the Saturday off work and I am back in work later on today (Sunday). I've just come home from my cousin's 6th birthday party which was amazing. It was just family and was located at my uncle's house which was lovely. I've just come back and I am literally full of energy and I have no idea where it's come from. I guess that's what playing games with two six year olds does to you. I'm currently sat on bed with a bottle of water next to me because I am so dehydrated and I have never been so motivated to blog before. I've also currently got my headphones in and I am on spotify creating a holiday playlist which I am going to include below. Enjoy!

Hey Everyone! Happy Wednesday! I hope you have all had a great week so far. If you've made it through this time in the week you can definitely handle anything that life throws your way for the rest of this week. This week I have been a bit of a emotional wreck. It's just been one of those weeks where I have needed a good cry. Things have been going from bad to worse and I have just felt so down. I have had my cry of the day (my millionth one this week) and now that it's out of the way I'm currently sat in bed with Harry Potter and chocolate to cheer me up. It hasn't been the best week but I'm thinking positive and it definitely cannot get any worse than this. I wanted to write a blog post about my thoughts and feelings at the moment but I'm still working on how I can write it without me sounding like a whiny teenager. It is coming soon so stay tuned for that post. It's definitely the most raw I have ever been. Today however, I thought I would write a post all about my adventures over the past weekend. Enjoy!

This past weekend I was in London with one of my closest friends Beki. We went for lunch at pizza hut to catch up on each others' lives and then went to see Phantom of the Opera which was absolutely amazing. It was the first time I'd properly seen Beki in around 3 months so it was good to catch up and have a natter before going to see one of our favorite musicals as it's one of the things we became friends over. We also had a wonder around London which was lovely as the weather was super pretty. There's just something special about London in the summer time and walking around it really inspired me to write why London is my favorite city. It's a place I've been born in and have grown up in but I have always loved it. Here are a few reasons why.

Diversity: London is just such an absolutely diverse city. No matter which part of the city you visit you will meet and see people of different ethnicitys and cultures in every direction. In the summer time especially, there are always lots of groups of students on trips from every corner of the world and it's just lovely to see how London can bring everyone together. Within my friendship group there are around 10 different cultures and about 4 different religions and it's just so fascinating learning and being a part of each and everyone of them. London is an extremely open minded city and one I am proud to live in.

The Best Shopping: From Oxford Street to Covent Garden to Camden Lock...there is something for everyone in London no matter your tastes or budget. I love all three of these places as they are all so unique and different in their own way.

The High Quality Nightlife: There is just no shortage of nightlife in London. From going to restaurants and bars, to clubs to just spending the night at the theatre once again there is something for everyone. London's West End is my favorite place as I am obsessed with musical theatre so I spend a lot of my time seeing shows like Wicked, Les Miserables and of course my recent visit there included seeing Phantom of the Opera. There's just no shortage of sources to entertain you in London.

Modern Whilst Being Historic: I love experiencing modern day London but being a history lover I love exploring the history of London. I love learning about the past and museums such as the British Museum or the V&A Museum and even Buckingham Palace and learning about the royals are just things I absolutely love.

A Place To Relax: Yes I know you're probably thinking 'But London is the busiest city in the world?'. This is very true however talking a time out and walking in some of London's parks such as Hyde Park and Richmond Park are super relaxing and are sometimes so peaceful you hardly think you're in London. Hyde Park is one of my favorite places to go to relax. However it's also a place that has something going on. Concerts in the summertime and Winter Wonderland in the winter. It's a place that has always got something going on and I love that.

Friendly People: This is something that can be a bit hit and miss. Us Londoners are known for out wide range of emotions however me personally I find London to be a very friendly city. Wherever I go people are polite, kind and always smiling and it's just something I love. It's so nice walking down the city and seeing people smiling at each other.

Music: Music is such a big part of London. With the 02 in Greenwich bringing in huge talents like Celine Dion, Bruno Mars, and other amazing artists and then smaller bars and clubs in and around London that host a wide variety of undiscovered talent from all genres of music and all walks of life. As a music lover this is just ideal for me.

It's Such A Photogenic City: London is one of the most beautiful places in the world. No matter what corner you turn you can always take a photo of something beautiful. You get the most spectacular views from London Eye or up on Hampstead Heath. Not going to lie as a blogger and even though I don't post them it is the perfect place to take outfit shots and get photo inspiration. Places like Covent Garden, Oxford Street, Leicester Square are just the perfect backdrops for those candid shots.

Amazing Transport Hub: Despite me and the vast majority of other Londoners having a bit of an on again off again relationship with London's transport it is the most amazing method of getting to other places within London as well as well as to the outskirts. However it's also the perfect place to get to other places such as Paris and other cities around Europe. With heathrow only a 20-30 minute train journey away from the center of London you're never far away from travelling the world.

So there we have it. Just a few reasons as to why I love London. I mean, yes I live here and yes I might sort of be a little biased but it truly is one of the most amazing cities in the world and one I'll always call home however cringey and corny that might be. If you are from London like me or have once lived or studied here let me know what you favorite things are about the city below as I'd love to read your thoughts. Also my friend Beki who I mentioned at the beginning of this post also has a blog. If you would like to check her out then just click HERE to head on over. Have an amazing rest of the week and I'll speak to you all in my latest post. 

Hugs and Kisses

Happy Thursday Everyone! I don't know about you but after yesterday's weather in London I am so happy to see the temperature has crept up a little bit and the sun is shining. Yesterday literally felt like winter to me which is fine as I love the cooler weather. Anyway, enough about that. If you read my blog post yesterday you will know that I have returned to blogging after a couple months break. I thought it would be a good idea to do a few random facts about me so that if you've just started to read my blog or have recently followed me on social media you can get to know me a little bit better. So before I ramble on a bit too much. here are a few random facts about me.

Hey Everyone! Welcome back to FleurDanielle. As you may know if you follow me on twitter I said a couple of days ago that I have about 4 days off now where as well as catching up with friends and relaxing, I will be back posting on FleurDanielle as we all know it has  been quite silent recently. I am currently sat in Costa Coffee near where I live with my phone and a cup of the most delicious hot chocolate I have ever tasted. If you know me you will know that I don't really drink tea and I don't really drink coffee. I barely drink warm drinks unless it's absolutely freezing and I don't know why but today is definitely one of those days where I am extremely cold and hot drinks are definitely required! I am currently listening to a vampire diaries playlist that I came across on spotify and I feel so content right now that it has motivated me to write this post. I know the photo above doesn't really relate but I remember when I took this photo that I was in a reflective mood and that is kind of the way I am feeling now so let's just go with it.
