    If you ever come to London I’ll take you to Trafalgar Square, I live near London so I go there quite a bit and its honestly just as amazing as I bet you’ve imagined it to be 🙂 You’ve inspired me to keep blogging, and don’t stop writing yourself you’ve got natural talent 🙂 xx

    Oh Emma, you’ve never had a white Christmas? That is a tragedy, please come visit me this December. Very cool bucket list – I’ve been pondering what to put on mine since I saw some else’s about a week ago. I love you and your blog and I’ve read like 3 things haha

      Ah, yes please! I’ve only ever been to the snow once (or twice if you count the time my parents took me to this dodgy, icy mountain), let alone a white Christmas! Isn’t it strange that in Australia, we have to ‘go to the snow’ – as if it’s a holiday location? I’d love to just wake up one morning to a snowy day! Anyway, thank you! 🙂 It took me a while to think it up and occasionally I sneakily change some of them around hahah. I can’t wait to read more of your blog!
