Brookes Snow Ski Trip 2017

We just got back from the best Ski trip ever at Les Acrs 1800, and I just can’t keep my emotions in! I literally was in tears on the last day – leaving the Alps broke my heart!

First of all, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Oxford Brookes Snow Sports Committee and Wastelandski reps – you guys have made the trip absolutely fantastic!

Secondly, I would like to thank my friends, who have been amazing this week and made the trip the best group trip I’ve ever been to.polina-rocks-les-arces-brookes-snow-ski-trip-2017-emoji

Thirdly, I need to thank the weatherman, who granted us some fresh pow on the day we arrived.polina-rocks-les-arces-brookes-snow-ski-trip-2017

25 presents for 25th Birthday

My birthday is coming up, and I’ve already got Β an early present from Alice and Keaton – and what a present it is!

The guys got me a box with 25 items – for my age – and each item is so thoughtful! I’m going on a ski trip the day after my birthday, so this hamper is not only helpful, but will remind me of them throughout the trip (Keaton is coming with me, but Alice is far away in Edinburgh). The box came with a card explaining each item – I copied it from the card for you to read below πŸ™‚

So what was in the box?

The proposal

For our eight year anniversary Ben took me to Paris. Eight years together turned into something much more romantic and important to celebrate. We got engaged.

On the 26th of September, at 8 am, Ben dragged me out of bed to have a photo shoot. If you know me well, you can imagine how delighted I was at the prospect (if you don’t, follow me on Instagram:))

We met the photographer at Trocadero just when the sun was rising. Zero tourists, just other couples with other photographers – the place has gotΒ the view!
