good morning good morning lovely Zola readers. I hope Santa treated you well, and summer is treating you even better. I hope you are enjoying the sunshine, and wasting away days as I have been with books and ice tea. If music is more your thing, I have you all sorted with exactly 3 and a half hours of jams to keep you cool this summer. This is pretty much all I've listened to since relinquishing my Christmas carols, and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do. Oh, and just a tip, make sure you don't get sunburnt!! I was clever enough to get absolutely fried on Boxing Day, and it really wasn't fun. Love you lots, S x

I swear I am 7 years old. I'm going to be 7 my entire life, and I'm ok with that. The thing is, I really really really really love Christmas. It's an undignified, Sav you're too old for this, kind of love. I'm not going to rant for too long, because I'm planning a bit of a Christmas tag video (woo!!) but I am going to say I have been listening to this playlist in secret since early November. Now it's your turn! I've decided its finally an appropriate time of the year to share my festivities with the world, so here is my Christmas playlist! It, of course, features the classic Justin Bieber, and also a surprising amount of Disney this year (in case I wasn't cheesy enough already). Also, special shoutout to the Pentatonix Christmas album, its possibly the best Christmas album ever recorded. Yes, I just went there. Have a listen and let me know what you think in the comments below. Merry Christmas xx

Hello chickens! I know it has been a ridiculously long time since you've heard from me, but after a long hour in the Apple store I am back with a laptop that actually turns on! Life is good, and I am in the full swing of holiday bliss. It's the time for vintage t-shirts and high waisted shorts, for realising my beautiful nikes are highly impractical and should be used for casual outfits and not for actual sport. What a visionary I've become.

If you're following my Instagram (@zolablog) you'll know I've spent most of my week at the beach, mainly because I scored a Tigerlily bikini as an early Chrissie present. I can't help but feeling I've started a beautifully dangerous and expensive love affair. But what can I say, I'm wonderfully sunburnt and content with my life. It's worth mentioning this is partly because of white chocolate macadamia frozen yoghurt, which I tried for the first time yesterday. Seriously, who needs functioning relationships. I have white chocolate macadamia frozen yoghurt now. I need a cute couple nickname for that, it's just too long. Chocodamia? I'm feeling that.

In other news, my throat is slowly but surely closing in on itself after multiple nights of belting Taylor Swift across living rooms. Yep, multiple. Apologies my dear friends. Thank you for putting up with my uncontainable obsession for a bit of T-Swizzle.

Oh and incase you were wondering, yes I did break into a high school for this. I did pretend I was watching a preschool ballet concert with my mum and my tripod, all before coming home and binge watching the baddest show on television. Winners and Losers. I think I've reached a new level of wreck-less abandon, someone pls call the police.

So yes, that's what my world has come to since we last spoke. How I've missed this bloggy goodness! If there's anything you'd like to see here on Zola be sure to hit me up in the comments or email me at savannahhughes00@gmail.com.

Love always,

Here at Zola, I like to try new things like this funky new trend where I pretend I'm fit and healthy. This has been around for a while, but being a person that doesn't like exercise I've kind of disregarded it till now. What I've realized recently is that this is wildly comfortable!! I can pretend I'm fit and sporty while really just wearing a fashionable version of my pyjamas. Yes pls!!

The whole activewear thing has been my saving grace with endless musical rehearsals, and this crazy heat we've had lately. Gotta love October. But most excitingly of all... ITS OPENING NIGHT!! After a term and a half of rehearsals, we're finally here. I'm riding on waves of excitement and nervousness. 3 hours till curtains open!!

Extended love to all my friends who have sent me good luck texts or are coming to see the show. This whole experience has just reminded me of how amazing you are.

But second most excitingly of all... The giveaway on my Instagram ends next week!! Get entering my loves <3 

I've gotta run and put another 3 liters of hairspray on my hair! Wish me luck!
