My Summer Reads

July 23, 2014


It's about time we shake things up a little bit here on Embur. When's the last time you opened up a book? Like a real book? I love to read during the summer. Just sitting on a beach with a book in hand is probably one of my favorite things to do during the summer. 

This week on my channel, I decide to talk about my top 7 favorite books of probably all time. Now I did say that I am a huge fan of Young Adult and that's primarily what my selection is. I think anyone can read YA. I don't think you have to be in your teens to like it. I think it's a great genre and anyone can relate to it. 


I hope you guys enjoyed this weeks video and make sure you subscribe for next week's video! Also in the comments, let me know what are some of your favorite books to read during the summer?

Last Days, Last Memories | The London Vlog

July 6, 2014


My last few days in London were probably some of the best. They were the topper to the entire trip. We had so much fun because we were over with class and just ready to party and be a little wild for once. We had some unforgettable memories, some that I will not disclose on this blog. 



When we weren't shopping during the day and checking out markets, we would go to a couple bars and hang out. We got to be VIPs at a nice bar in Central and have our own private room. It was pretty nice to feel all special for once and get our own private butler basically. The drinks were also amazing as well. That same night we went out to this nice club in Central for the first time and partied and danced our butts off. The club was in a Penthouse suite so the view from the club was the entire London sky line. It was drop dead gorgeous. Also, Central can be kind of crazy at night and so can the night bus if you don't watch it!

The next day, instead of packing, we went to check out the Shard and get a couple drinks for happy hour. Best happy house ever! The Shard is the tallest building in London and it literally looks like a shard of glass because the entire building is made out of windows. We went all the way up to the tip top 63rd floor and had a round of drinks and enjoyed the amazing view. After the Shard we went and had dinner at this fabulous Italian resturant in South Kensignton/Chelsea district. I got lobster linguini and it was to freaking die for! It was so mouthwatering, I mean just look at it!

Then for desert we all went to our usual Kensington Creperie which turned into our favorite resturant in all of London! My waffle was amazing, which you may gaze at it yourself and feel free to drool over it like I did.

After that, that was it. I went home and I cried. Literally. Saying bye to my friends was the hardest thing to do. It's like summer camp because you never know when you're going to see those people again. You spend so much time with them and create all these memories and inside jokes and then poof, everybody's gone. The entire three weeks went by in a blink of an eye. It was a trip I will never forget. I will never stop saying how lucky and grateful I was to take this trip and live out some dreams of mine in such a beautiful city. I definitely plan on going back. I know I will. I want to and will eventually end up moving there and raising a family. There's no doubt in my mind about it. 

I'm so thankful to be able to take you guys with me as well. I hope you have enjoyed all my vlogs. I know I've really sucked with my blog posts, but with such a hectic schedule like I had, it was so hard to keep up with it. Now that I am back, I plan to do a lot more with this blog and get back to it. I can't wait to take you guys on more of my adventures!

Barnes to Windsor, Windsor to Barnes! | The London Vlog

July 4, 2014


I'm soooooo behind on writing my blogs. I have written all my blog posts on my notepad but I always forget to transfer them over to blogger. So please bare with me, thanksssssssss!

So I'm finally catching up with my vlogs now. In the fourth vlog, I visited Windsor Castle and the town around it. I was really upset when I was editing because I lost the footage I had from that morning. I guess I must have accidentally deleted or something, it really wasn't that much of an importance anyways! Now don't get me wrong, I love seeing all these places and going on adventures, but two things that I cannot stand are tour guides and looking like a tourist. I love going to certain places only locals know about and just blending in. Or maybe I just want to seem cooler. Honestly though, this tour guide and trip was just the biggest mess ever. We couldn't stop laughing from some of the things this tour guide was doing. His facial expressions and corny sayings were cracking all of us up. Hence, Barnes to Windsor. You had to be there to here this guy just say it and his facial expression with it. This probably one of my favorite inside jokes that our group had. It's like one of those things I can always look back on with a smile because that day was too great.


Later on in the week, I went to Brighton with the boys. Brighton is so freakin pretty. I just love that it's a pebble beach too. I tried so hard to find the infamous beach huts but I never did! But I did find a Nando's. We spent most of the day on the pier. I personally had no interest in riding any of the rides because I get my adrenaline rush from swiping a credit card at All Saints more than I do a roller coaster. God, if that didn't make me sound like I have a serious shopping addiction, then I don't know what does. My blog is seriously something that should be out of Confessions of a Shopaholic. 

After we spent the day in Brighton, we decided to see The Fault in Our Stars. When I say we, I mean I dragged my guy friends with me. I thoroughly enjoyed it simply because I love the story and read the book and thought it to be fantastic! My guy friends, not so much. I can't blame them, I didn't expect them to like it in the first place. However, it was everything I absolutely hoped it would be. I was bawling my eyes out, like I looked so pathetic but it was just so good! 

Then the very next day, (in vlog 5) we took a lovely trip to Harry Potter Studios! I'm not going to go into much detail with this because all the details are in the video, BUT THE ONE THING I DIDNT GET ON CAMERA WAS ME RIDING A BROOM! Best thing during the day ever. Oh my god amazing in every freakin way possible. Like it was such an unreal day. I got to try butterbeer too! It wasn't as amazing as I thought but it wasn't too bad. Sorry for not diving into too much detail, but this post is already long enough. 



It's so hard to blog and travel and remember to do so many things. I've been doing nothing but travel lately so please bare with me. My trip is about over and I hope you guys don't hate me!
