My Europe Travel Wishlist

Ah, the world of Wanderlust is both terrible and exciting. Somedays, I love my little adult life in my new home, with a boyfriend, our very own dog and standard well-paying 9-5 jobs. Other days, I want to be as far away from here as possible. That’s OK though, because you don’t have to give up everything for a years travelling Asia or the Gold Coast to be able to say you’ve had that travelling experience. My alternative now is to take short trips over many years to cover the same destinations. Firstly, focusing on Europe..  (more…)

We’re going through changes..

Hello internet world. I am back and I am back with a vengeance. As you can see, With Love Lottie has had a little less love and a little more neglect these past few months. With moving home, christmas, birthdays, buying a puppy, it’s all been a bit hectic and leaving very little time and motivation to blog. However, this post marks a whole new start. I have updated my theme, info and gained back my love for writing on my little internet space. Having started my blog about beauty and fashion, I will be moving into a more lifestyle direction to fit in with my current.. well, lifestyle. I am excited for what’s to come and hope you all will be too!

See you in my next post!

Introducing Freddy

HIYA!

So, I haven’t blogged for a whole two months and that is absolutely dreadful of me, I know but there has been lots going on. So obviously, what’s the best thing to do once you’ve bought a house that needs hella loads of work and work full time? Buy a puppy, obviously (Little note here, we have my partner’s grandparents that live around the corner and look after Freddy whenever we can’t so he basically has two homes and isn’t left for hours) So here he is, little Freddy.

Life living with a boy

So it’s been almost three months since my boyfriend & I purchased our very own home and let me tell you, it’s a whole different world to living at home with your family. I’m not saying every boy is like this, but it definitely sums up life with my boyfriend!

Why I chose to be a college drop out

When I finished school, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was interested in everything and nothing at the same time, loving a subject but not loving it enough to decide on it as a career. Does anybody even know what they want to be when they’re sixteen? I found there was a lot of pressure to go to college then to university from the school and that it felt like the only option. It’s not, not everybody is academic.

My Winter Essentials

I don’t cope well in the winter, much more of a summer girl. I don’t like bulky clothing or freezing temperatures so I like to keep a select few items to hand to keep me going throughout the season.

5 Things I Couldn’t Live Without

I hate to admit it, but I think I can be a little materialistic. Ideally, I’d live in a world where things don’t matter and you can go through life happy with a bag of chips & a free trip to the seaside (actually, I’d be pretty happy with that!

What I’ve learnt from a long term relationship

This month marks the five year anniversary of my relationship with my boyfriend (minus an itty bitty 3 month break up in 2013). While to anyone that’s been married for 20 years might think five years is basically five minutes, I’d say it’s a pretty good run which I hope will continue for many more years. Starting a relationship at age 16 to now age 21 has been a struggle, I’ll admit. You are a completely different person from what you was when it began and there’s a lot of changes in your personality and perspectives when you enter adulthood. Did sixteen year old me really believe I would still be with the same boy or was that just naivety? There’s a lot of stigma around ‘young love’ and how it won’t last but it’s definitely different for everybody. All Relationships can be challenging, no matter your age.
