Rejection: The Ghoster And The Ghosted

Originally posted on Rosie Culture:
Ghosting (verb): The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date. This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just “get the hint” and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested. Let me start out by saying, I have been ghosted before and I have also ghosted slightly. One way of ghosting someone you went out on a date with or hooked up with is just never contacting them again. Never answering their texts, deleting their friend requests, and basically ignoring their existence. If there seemed to be a serious connection, you had been on more than one date, or if you had sex – do not ghost someone. That just sucks. You can’t just ignore someone you got to know personally. It’s rude and childish. I’ve been ghosted like that and all I can really do is shrug my shoulders and move on. It’s not really fair to not…

Day 14: Los Angeles

Originally posted on Trekking Together:
We left the campground at 8am and headed to LA for our last day together! We had a quick drive through the campus of UCLA before stopping somewhere in Beverly Hills for some lunch. I had a Taco Bell, my first taste of American fast-food, and it was great! We then went on a drive around all the massive Beverly Hills mansions. We saw the Playboy mansion, and whilst we were there a UPS van pulled up, so we got to see the gates opening up. None of us went inside though, in case we were ambushed by security! The Playboy Mansion Beverly Hills Next stop was Rodeo Drive and all the expensive designer stores. The grand looking building reminded me a bit of Diagon Alley in Harry Potter. I’ve made quite a few comparisons of places in California to Harry Potter, so I am pretty sure that JK got some inspiration from the Gold Coast! Either that, or I’m just a bit obsessed with Harry Potter. I wanted to…

The World Needs More Love Letters 💕✉️

Originally posted on The Wolf & The Fox:
Recently I came across a brilliant campaign called “The World Needs More Love Letters“. At first I was a little skeptical about the idea, I wondered what it was about, obviously love letters, but not the typical sort of love letter… These ‘love letters’, aren’t love letters at all. In fact these are letters that started in 2010 on a train with a girl who decided to experiment with her own loneliness. Thus creating love letters, to help her through it. * “The things she found to be true: A) No matter how tough we act, we all still need a love letter from time to time. B) Even in a world crammed tight into 140 characters and constant status updates, there is a still a great craving for the handwritten note. C) Everyone defines the term “love letters” in their own way. Better we take the word from its confines and let it run free. D) The world needed far more than just her own love…

Day 4: The Grand Canyon

Originally posted on Trekking Together:
Day 4 consisted of another long van day with a couple of interesting stops along the way! The first stop of the day was at Lake Havasu City to see the original London Bridge. The bridge, which was originally built in of course London, was bought by a rich man (Robert P. McCulloch) and reassembled in Arizona in the late 60s/early 70s, in a fake English town. But it was unlike any English town I have ever been to. Imagine an idyllic Shakesperean village with palm trees that’s about 30 degrees hotter than actual England. London in America London Bridge The next stop was much more fascinating – Seligman, an old style American town on the historic Route 66. The Pixar film Cars is loosely based on Seligman, and you could definitely see a resemblance with the old cars and traditional style stores and cafes. I would have liked to have a bit more time at Seligman to have a little wonder around the town, we only stopped for lunch and…

Six Years.

Even though I’ve been married to Drew for just over a year, today marks our sixth anniversary of being a couple. In celebration of this, I decided to share with you all one photo from each our anniversaries! 2009 Just a month after we made it official, this was our first photo as a couple. 2010 We weren’t able to celebrate our one year anniversary together, but we stuck through that first year and all it’s craziness. 2011 I barely have any pictures of us together that year, let alone on our anniversary. But this was from that August, right before our two year anniversary. 2012 Celebrating our third anniversary in the mountains, riding horses, watching sunsets. This was our first anniversary we got to spend together! 2013 Celebrating our fourth anniversary at the beach, riding mopeds, feeding llamas, and so much more. This was a truly wonderful day. 2014 Last year we booked a cabin and escaped to the mountains for our five year anniversary.   2015 No beaches, or mountains, but we got…

Final Week

Originally posted on Trekking Together:
I am writing this from a hotel in Manhattan Beach – the final destination of our holiday! Tom and I both had the most amazing time on the trek. With every single location offering memorable experiences, from the bright lights of Vegas to the ridiculous temperatures of Death Valley (seriously, it was about 54 degrees Celsius). My personal favourite place was Yosemite, and San Diego a close second (although I would loved to have seen much more of the city). Originally my plan was to write blog posts along the way as we travelled through West America. But a combination of a jam packed schedule and a lack of WiFi has meant I haven’t been able to. However, I have been keeping a detailed journal, so once I am back in the UK I will be able to write in depth posts accompanied by some pretty brilliant photos!
