TRAVEL: Throwback to Paris


Last year my wonderful boyfriend took me to Paris for my 21st Birthday where he organised every little thing by himself. To this day, it is probably one of the most amazing things anyone has ever done for me and I was totally blown away.

How to stay Motivated

Staying motivated is something that everyone at some point struggles with in life. Sometimes we just aren’t in the right mind frame to be able to push ourselves and this isn’t exactly surprising given all that life throws as us. So I decided to put together a post that may give a little assistance in staying motivated.

Holiday Make Up

As you read this, I will holidaying in Orlando and running around Harry Potter world like a crazed child. Never fear though as I have several posts to go up while I am away for you to enjoy

If your wondering while I’m doing a Holiday Make Up post now of all times – well, lets keep positive! According to trusty Google, the last day of Summer is officially the 23rd of September so maybe we’ll see some more sun before then. Anyway, like many people, my make up routine differs quite considerably when I’m on holiday, so I thought I’d let you take a look into my holiday make up bag!

10 Facts about Me

1. I am only 5’1″ in height which can be the biggest pain! I would much rather be at least 5’5″ but I’m working with it…

2. Horrors and thrillers are my favourite type of film to watch, screw the Notebook, if there’s blood and gore – I’m there!

3. I can’t play a single instrument (does the triangle count!?) and I wish I had taken up something like piano when I was younger.

4. I adore chocolate and I’ve never even thought about giving it up for any reason. I don’t have a particular favourite, but on certain days I will have my mind set on what I want, whether that be Cadburys, Galaxy, Milka, Lindt…

5. I went to University in Newcastle and I miss the city so much! There’s so much to do there, it just doesn’t compare to my hometown.

6. I love quotes and have a huge bank of them saved in a document on my computer. It also makes me feel better when I can find a quote that accurately sums up how I am feeling that day.

7. The Dark Knight has to be one of my favourite films ever. Heath Ledger is incredible in it and I genuinely don’t see how anyone could play a better Joker. Sorry, Jared Leto!

8. I am a massive Harry Potter geek and rarely get any HP related trivia questions wrong. Go on, try me!

9. When I was younger, I once saw a boy at school’s pupil bleeding and from there onwards, I have had this massive fear of any eye related injuries or even when someone just stretches open their eyelids at me *shudders.*

10. Unfortunately I am an extremely fussy eater, which my mother loathes. My taste buds seem to struggle with a lot of different foods which mean I am far from adventurous with my palette and can often make life difficult!


So that’s a little about me! Tell me an interesting fact about you in the comments!

August Favourites

August is nearing it’s end which means one thing – it’s time for my August Favourites!


I was determined to hunt down the Lush store on Oxford High Street when we were in London recently and I’m surprised I managed to contain myself and only buy two bath bombs! It’s three floors of gorgeous smelling products and there’s so many new and different things to look at compared to your regular Lush store. I knew I had to contain myself so picked up the Experimenter and Intergalactic. Wanting to make the most of them, so far I’ve only used the Experimenter. This consists of five of the most vibrant colours that leaves your bath in a psychedelic frenzy. It’s truly mesmerising to watch and well, just look at the results below! As usual with lush products, your nose will thank you for the fragrant smell it leaves as you relax back into the warm water.
