I have been trying to make the most of the summer whilst I have time off from work and before I start the busy academic year. Alike to every other resident in Belfast, I attended the Tall Ships Festival a few weeks back when I was celebrating my twenty-third birthday. I had a great time catching up with my best friends and partying, and although I normally love making big plans for birthdays, I actually really enjoyed how relaxed it was. 

Another reason why it has been important for me to get out and about as much as I can this summer is because of how little time I get to spend with my friends and family because I am traveling to Italy to work as an au pair for the whole of August. I am very excited to spend the weekends seeing some amazing locations, first stop hiking through the Alps in Austria! Totally bricking it, as you would, but I know that it will be a great way to travel, earn and gain more experience with kiddos as I plan a future career built around them - win win win! 

I am collecting the keys to the new gaff this weekend and will hopefully get my bedroom and bathroom sorted out before I leave so that I have a home to come back to in September, rather than a bare space to stress over. I have been so excited to get my own space as I have been kipping at my boyfriends house over the last month, along with my future housemate and as amazing this home is (I mean it has a conservatory!!) it's just not my space. 
I have been painting furniture and collecting my bits and bobs for decorating, including the cutest little cross-stitch piece by my best friend from our favourite song the whole of the moon that will have pride of place on my bedroom wall. 

I am excited to update the blog in the upcoming week about home-making, travels and maybe even get a few outfit posts up too (if I am lucky!). Have any of you au paired before? If so what was your experience like?
