It feels surreal that I'm sat here at the end of 2019 looking ahead to a whole year and a whole new decade.

Bristol is a city that I just can't help falling in love with on repeat. While I love to travel when I can there is something satisfying about being in the city that I love and get to call home. I mean it was voted Best Place in Britain to Live by the Sunday Times too in 2017. It's still awesome too. So here's my little guide of some of the most beautiful and square-worthy places in the city.

Another of the topics of my instagram stories discussions was about why influencer now seems to be a dirty word. In my polls 76% said they thought there was a big stigma around the term with 43% of people saying they can't stand it.

Fitness | The London Marathon Journey - Part 1 - Rachel Emily running in Portishead Marina

Now you may be right in thinking if you've been reading my posts for a while... i'm sure this all sounds familiar. And you'd be totally right.

This is now the 3rd time I've put my name in the ballot for the London Marathon, despite not being a runner at all.

Travel | What I Did in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities that I've been to. Admittedly I've not been to many. But, it's chilled out nature and gorgeous architecture have got me hook, line and sinker.

Wellbeing | Why I'm Done With Fad Diets and False Claims

Wellbeing | Why I'm Done With Fad Diets and False Claims - Rachel Emily Blog

The internet is dark and full of lies. (well it can be)

In a world of social media and the internet it is all too easy to be swept up in a world of false information.

Emma can tell you she's an instagram guru; Sandra can help you lose 10lbs in 3 weeks; Tim can help you make thousands of extra pounds each month easy.

Fashion | My Summer Staple -  Mom Jeans - Rachel Emily Blog

It turns out mom jean's aren't just for moms. Otherwise I probably shouldn't have a pair. 

These Topshop beauties have practically been glued to my legs since I got them.

Wellness | How to Take a Break from Social Media

Wellness | How to Take a Break from Social Media - Rachel Emily Blog

You might have noticed recently that I've taken a few short breaks from social media, mainly instagram, and the blog. You might not have. But I took the breaks because I was suffering from Social Media (mainly Instagram) Fatigue.

Discussion | Can you be Body Positive but Want to Change?

Discussion | Can you be Body Positive but Want to Change? - Rachel Emily Blog

Recently on my instastories I've been starting discussions about a few topic's I'd encountered recently or my bug bears. One of these topics was raised at Bristol Fashion Week in relation to Body Positivity. While the catwalk had models of a variety of sizes, ethnicity and disability there was discussion over how as great as it was, it could have gone further.

Lifestyle | How to Maximise on Daylight Savings

Lifestyle | How to Maximise on Daylight Savings - Rachel Emily Blog

Daylight Savings to me means the start of Spring Summer. I know meteorological spring started on the 1st March and the Spring Equinox was Wednesday 20th March but for me that extra hour of daylight we got yesterday changes everything. I find i'm more motivated in the evenings after work to do things round the house, go to the gym or run errands and I'm generally more upbeat.

Lifestyle | How I'm Changing my Life Before I'm 30

Lifestyle | How I'm Changing my Life Before I'm 30 - Rachel Emily Blog

2021 is the year that I'll turn the big 3-0.

Now I may be a little ahead of myself here as it's only 2019, and I've only just turned 28 today, but time flies when you're having fun and I intend to have as much fun as possible, where possible.

Fashion | How to Find Winter Swimwear

Fashion | How to Find Winter Swimwear - UK Swimwear Watercult - Rachel Emily Blog

Bikini shopping is a lot like shopping for jeans shopping at times. You get over one hurdle, and another presents itself. The cups fit, but it gapes if you move too much, or the bum fits nice standing still but moves as soon as you do.

Wellbeing | 5 Ways to Avoid the January Blues

Wellbeing | 5 Ways to Avoid the January Blues | Rachel Emily Blog

Christmas and New Year are always filled with festivities and sparkle that honestly, I never ever want it to end. But if it didn't end I think we'd all get a little bit fed up of all the glitter in our eyes. I'm lucky enough to get time off work over the festive period as work shuts down and I always find it tough going back to normal life after. This year has been no exception as I've gone back to work, into exam season and I have a stinking cold.

Fashion | Winter Whites

Fashion | Winter Whites | Rachel Emily Blog

While we didn't get a white Christmas this winter I am obsessed with winter whites. White is my favourite colour as it's clean, fresh and it looks expensive, providing you don't spill anything down it. Here is one of my favourite looks from the season so far.

Lifestyle | Hello 2019

Lifestyle | Hello 2019 | Rachel Emily Blog

Hello 2019.

I can't believe we are quite meeting so soon. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was, in the words of Charli XCX, partying like it was 1999. Which for me would be getting hyper on ice cream coke floats and banging pots and pans in the street to see in the millennium.
