Today Jess and I went pumpkin picking *queue the stereotypical autumnal posts๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‚ I've said this like a thousand times but I just can't get enough of this time of year.

3 birthdays together and she's well and truly done with my bullshit๐Ÿ’˜

bethpenzer. Today I turn 20 years old. I never thought I'd make it this far. Menta

Today I turn 20 years old. I never thought I'd make it this far. Mental illness robbed me of my teenage years which I spent trapped in a world that was dark, lonely and scary - a place I thought I'd leave well before the terrifying hands of adulthood could take their grasp. But some how, I held on. I feel like only in the last two years have I began to recover and rebuild myself. I'm growing everyday. Still, growing older is something I find uncomfortable to think about. I wish I could go back in time but I can't. I can only move forward. I have always found birthdays bittersweet and the one person I'd do anything to share this day with can't be here - not in person anyway. Although, if she was she'd probably tell me to stop moping around and go enjoy myself. I promise I'll try. Every year I try my hardest to enjoy the celebrations the way society tells us we should - but I can't. Instead, I am stuck. Stuck reminiscing over time I've lost and the people who've gone with it. Those times have left a nasty scar. But I have used my experiences to create something beautiful and stronger than most: the person I am today. 20 year old me still has a lot to work on, things to accept and lots to learn. But she is beautiful. She is smart. She is stronger than she ever thought possible. She has hit rock bottom more than once but she gets back up every. single. time. She's someone her sister was proud of. I'm unsure of what my twenties have in store but one thing I've learnt during my time on earth is that you can plan all you want but sometimes, life happens so you might as well just go with it, no matter how tough it gets. Hold on. We always end up where we're supposed to be, even if that isn't clear for a while. So here's to turning another year older, wiser and just being alive to experience it๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿฆ‹ - #blogger #bloggershare #mentalhealth #mentalhealthblogger #flashesofdelight #petitejoys #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #mybeautifulmess #calledtobecreative #thatauthenticfeeling #postitfortheaesthetic #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #makeitblissful #chooselovely #howyouglow #oneofthebunch #livecreatively #momentsofmine #beauthentic

Throwing it back to August when I visited @realflowerpetalconfetti๐Ÿ’ For miles, a sea of pale pink and lilac to deep fuchsia and violet were all you could see - it felt like you were a world away from the chaos of modern living. This shot in particular is one of my favourites as the contrasting colours meet๐ŸŒธ It was the last day before the fields closed for the year and the flowers would be harvested and turned into confetti, which felt kind of special. I have to admit, Summer is probably my least favourite season purely due to the heat; so, as beautiful as the fields were in full bloom, I'm glad to welcome the cooler chill of Autumn๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ Are you an Autumn or a Summer person?โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‚ ------------------------ #travel #travelblogger #summer #summertime #realflowerpetalconfetti #bloggershare #lifestyleblogger #adventures #exploring #photography #flashesofdelight #darlingmovement #thehappynow #ambhappylife #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #calledtobecreative #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #makeitblissful #oneofthebunch

It's no secret that I love a @nationaltrust. A few weekends ago, Jess and I visited @snowshillmanornt near Broadway in the Cotswolds๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒพ For me, this was one of my favourite National Trusts yet. The tiered gardens were absolutely stunning, from the top you could see the orchards below surrounded by rolling fields - the perfect place for a picnic in the sunshine!๐ŸŽโ˜€๏ธ The gardens were also home to a model village which even had its own canal running through it!๐Ÿ˜๏ธ As for the manor house, it was so different to anything we'd seen before! I'm not going to say too much as you really have to experience it to know what I mean!๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ”Ž I do however now have a liking for taxidermy bats and puffer fish...๐Ÿก To end our day of exploring, we sat on a garden bench to sketch the rustic stable block using what I'm pretty sure was charcoal from a child's colouring kit before treating ourselves in the gift shop - you really can't beat National Trust gin!๐Ÿ‘ŒI feel quite lucky in having such beautiful attractions so close to our doorstep, what do you love about your home town? ---------------------------------------------------- #beffsbabes #travel #travelblogger #cotswolds #nationaltrust #snowshill #snowshillmanor #bloggershare #lifestyleblogger #flashesofdelight #darlingmovement #thehappynow #ambhappylife #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #calledtobecreative #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #makeitblissful #oneofthebunch

Happy Sunday!๐ŸŒž Yesterday, Jess and visited the Cotswolds which will always be a place of happy memories and nostalgia๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ‘ We stopped at Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. I seem to fall in love with the historic chocolate-box architecture a little more each time I visit. It's like time just stands still; although, time soon flies by when you're browsing the quaint independent shops that line the crooked high streets๐Ÿ›๏ธ Of course, I had to stop for a cheeky photo (and get the tattoos in๐Ÿค˜). Today I'm staying in my pyjamas and taking things easy (it is Sunday after all).

Hello September๐ŸŒซ๏ธ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ๐Ÿ‚ For me, September is a month of new beginnings and this year, I have big plans. I'll soon be back at university and I'm giving therapy another go๐Ÿ’› Yesterday, I jumped right into the deep end and pushed my limits by attempting exposure therapy. My Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) made it nearly impossible to enjoy myself but I fought against my negative thoughts and did it anyway๐Ÿ’ช I haven't been out in a public place without wearing makeup since I was 12/13! The entire time I thought something awful was going to happen. Newsflash, it didn't. I was okay. I got through it and the sun felt SO good on my bare skinโ˜€๏ธ It has taken YEARS of fighting mental illness and slowly learning to manage my anxiety to get to this point. 2019 is THE yearโœจ Nothing feels better than growth๐ŸŒฑ ---------------- #helloseptember #beffsbabes #blogger #bloggershare #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthblogger #flashesofdelight #petitejoys #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #mybeautifulmess #calledtobecreative #thatauthenticfeeling #postitfortheaesthetic #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #makeitblissful #chooselovely #howyouglow #oneofthebunch #livecreatively #momentsofmine #beauthentic

Mine and Jess' tradition each time we visit a national trust is that I always treat her to a book. Jess loves a good story and despite being someone who isn't an avid reader, I very much enjoy the calm atmosphere of a bookstore or reading nook๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽ I'd just rather photograph them instead of sit down and read which is never a problem when they're this pretty๐Ÿ“ธ ---------------------------------------- #nationaltrust #visitengland #travel #travelblogger #bloggershare #life #lifestyleblogger #adventures #exploring #photography #nature #wanderlust #flashesofdelight #darlingmovement #thehappynow #ambhappylife #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #calledtobecreative #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity

Garden goals๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ ------------------------------------------- As August is coming to a close, I got thinking about my goals for the rest of the year and what I hope to achieve in 2020 - which isn't that far away. It doesn't have to be scary though. Time is time. It always has and always will be the same. Ticking away at the same pace it always has. I have always feared time passing by and growing older but actually, it could be a very fun thing - if I just let it. I spent my day updating photos on my very early blog posts, which is a little different from my current content to say the least. I could see how much I've grown and evolved and it made me realise that getting older shouldn't be feared. It should be embraced. I love my writing style. I love writing. I love the passion and thought that goes into every post. My blog is something I have built over time and I'm proud of my genuine, honest and sometimes raw creations. But it's me. In the near future, I'd like to put more effort into my social channels; perhaps change my online aesthetic and the content I make. There are certainly a few topics I could think of that I haven't yet got the confidence to discuss but one day, it will come. When I started my blog, my main goal was to have an outlet. I needed somewhere to store my thoughts and my blog has definitely become a space in which I can do that. Later on I realised it's a space I could use to help people which is still a huge drive of mine. I quickly realised that growing online is no easy task, I still need to educate myself in so many areas (starting with SEO) but that's okay. Everyone starts somewhere. In 2020, I'd like my audience to grow a little more; numbers aren't everything so I don't have one in mind but any growth is good. I'm content with where I'm at on this crazy journey. What are your 2019/2020 goals?โœจ ------------------- #nationaltrust #visitengland #travel #travelblogger #bloggershare #life #lifestyleblogger #adventures #exploring #photography #nature #wanderlust #flashesofdelight #darlingmovement #thehappynow #ambhappylife #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #calledtobecreative #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity

Yesterday Jess & I visited @hanburyhall_nt which is where we became @nationaltrust members; since then, we've been on so many adventures and days out to beautiful period homes and estates in the UK - and some Welsh beaches too!๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ–๏ธ The lady who signed us up actually scanned our membership cards, so it was lovely to catch up! Hanbury Hall will always be a favourite of mine, the walled gardens are the perfect place for a stroll in the sunshine - or a picnic if you don't mind braving the wasps!โ˜€๏ธ Even though the sun was out when I took this photo (in mid August might I add) I feel like it has a wintery vibe?โ„๏ธ I hate to be THAT person but I'm so ready for the cold, crisp weather!๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ I can't wait to wrap up in jumpers and coats and visit all these historic places in spooky season๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ป ---------------------------------------------------- #nationaltrust #visitengland #travel #travelblogger #bloggershare #life #lifestyleblogger #adventures #exploring #photography #nature #wanderlust #flashesofdelight #darlingmovement #thehappynow #ambhappylife #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #calledtobecreative #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity

'Revolution is not a one time event'. The parade and protests are my favourite parts of Pride; they act a reminder that the first pride was in fact a riot (and never fail to make me emotional af). As Pride is becoming more commercialised, more people attend because they see it as a festival when it's not. Companies and businesses see it as an opportunity to advertise and make money and I feel the true meaning is getting a bit lost. Pride creates a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community where everyone can be themselves, celebrate self acceptance, achievements and legal rights. The LGBTQ+ community NEED Pride. Even today in 2019, homophobia and hate crimes still happen and is something LGBTQ+ people face every single day. Back in June, a lesbian couple were physically attacked for refusing to kiss to please a group of men on a London bus - this struck a personal chord as this is why my girlfriend feels too afraid to hold my hand in public. I can't even begin to imagine how terrifying it must've been for those women. So during the parties and celebrations, let's not forget that this is the reason why we celebrate and need Pride๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ ------------------------ #brighton #lgbtq #lgbtq๐ŸŒˆ #lgbtpride #pride #brightonpride #prideparade #loveislove #blogger #bloggershare #pastimewithpenz

bethpenzer. Happy Sunday!๐ŸŒท As temperatures have been reaching all time highs here

Happy Sunday!๐ŸŒท As temperatures have been reaching all time highs here in the UK, my skin has been feeling dehydrated and looking kinda dull - there's certainly no 'Summer glow' going on here๐ŸŒก๐Ÿ˜ฉ So, I decided to change up my skin care routine. Firstly, I'd like to talk about @burtsbeesuk Peppermint Lip Balm with vitamin E. I now SWEAR by this product; it's fresh, lightweight and keeps my lips feeling soft and protected in the summer sun!๐Ÿ‘„โ˜€๏ธ My previous routine consisted of cleanser, toner, moisturiser, the occasional mask aaand that's pretty much it - I knew nothing about serums or acids. All of that changed when I used @deciem's inquiry service where you tell them your skin type, any concerns you have and what sort of products you're looking for - much like a consultancy! I was recommend a bunch of amazing products which I'll talk more about in my upcoming blog post but for now, we'll focus on The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid which has been a skin SAVIOUR! It's super hydrating without being greasy and has added much needed moisture to my dehydrated skin, making it appear plumper and youthful!๐Ÿ‘Œ Hellooo Summer glow๐Ÿ˜ My new routine is working wonders for my skin and I couldn't feel more confident and ready for Brighton Pride next weekend!๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆโค What are your Summer skin care must-haves? ----------- #skincarehaul #blogger #bloggershare #bblogger #beautyblogger #blogginggals #selfcare #skin #skincare #skincareaddict #iloveskincare #productreview #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #ambhappylife #petitejoys #livethelittlethings #calledtobecreative #verilymoment #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #makeitblissful #chooselovely #howyouglow #oneofthebunch
