A White Christmas

Saturday, 30 December 2017

Snow makes everything pretty. An iridescent blanket covers all dark and tattered details, leaving a soft glow to our surroundings. The atmosphere transforms; everything becomes muffled and somewhat slower than before, as if we were in a snow globe winter wonderland.

72 Hours In Kyoto, Japan

Sunday, 26 November 2017

The Red Gates

We made it! Our last stop of he Japan tour: Kyoto! Being the old capital of the country before the emperor moved to Tokyo, Kyoto is just as bustling and busy but with both rural looking areas and built up city blocks. With just over 3 days to explore it all, every minute was packed full of activities, barely giving us time to sleep! 

48 Hours In Nikko, Japan

Thursday, 23 November 2017

Day 1

Tokyo ended too soon, however the longing to stay was put aside knowing we were on to the next new and exciting place. Nikko, a small rural village about 2 hours outside of the capital, was waiting to impress with its stunning views and fresh country air.

72 Hours In Tokyo, Japan

Thursday, 16 November 2017

Just over 2 weeks ago (how has time gone that fast?!) my dad, sisters and I went on a family trip across the world to Japan for a 10 day express tour. It was by far one of the best holidays I've ever been on and have now fallen in love with the city of Tokyo.

Mini Beauty Haul

Thursday, 2 November 2017

Oops I did it again! *sings Britney Spears for the rest of the day* 

So yeahhh, I spent a little more money, money that I don't have (should be saving) but I am justifying this by writing a blog post about it :) logic.
I went on Cult Beauty just for a browse and ended up caving and putting some items in my basket. Here they are!

October Favourites

Tuesday, 31 October 2017

Happy Halloween! I hope you're out having a good time with some friends, preferably in a scary or funny costume with lots of sweets and chocolate :)

My Favourite Bands

Sunday, 29 October 2017

The Amazons - Oslo Hackney - 13.10.16

As all of my friends can easily tell you, I. love. bands. Gigs, vinyls, t-shirts, festivals, singing at the top of my lungs and more, I'm a little obsessed...

Lush Halloween Haul!

Friday, 27 October 2017

Excitement doesn't even begin to cover all of the emotions I felt when this beautiful box arrived on my doorstep! As soon as I opened the front door the aroma filled my nose immediately and I was transported to a Lush shop, one of my favourite places on Earth. Ok maybe a bit dramatic but seriously, I love Lush. 

Travel Tips - Packing For Japan!

Wednesday, 25 October 2017

Konnichiwa! Or should I say sayonara since in just 2 days I'm off to the land of sushi and blossoms? My dad, sisters and I are taking a trip to Japan for an express tour through Tokyo, Nikko and Kyoto, places I've only ever dreamed of going. I couldn't be more excited! Lists have been written, blog posts planned and film bought for my camera (lots of it!) and I can't wait to share it all when our journey is done. 

Halloween Haul

Monday, 23 October 2017

The countdown begins! With only 7 days left until Halloween I decided it was now acceptable to fill my bedroom with all things pumpkin (I would fill the house but my sisters aren't too keen, boo). So I bought myself a collection of decorations from various shops that I want to share with you to show you don't have to spend a crap tonne to get in the spirit!

Redecorating My Bedroom!

Saturday, 21 October 2017

Since about the age of 10, my bedroom has seen every colour of the rainbow on its walls and many different arrangements of furniture. Being the smallest room in our home, it's very easy to revamp every now and again due to the minimal cost and effort which is great for me as I tend to get quite bored with my surroundings and am proactive enough to do something about it.

My Top 10 Netflix Shows for Autumn

Tuesday, 17 October 2017

Just like everyone else after a long day at work or school, I love to have a night in curled up on the sofa with some yummy snacks and a good show on the TV. Particularly at this time of year when the skies begin to darken at 3pm, getting cosy and relaxing in the evening is the perfect way to complete a day. Netflix has been my go-to with the exception of Dr Foster and The Great British Bake Off, so I thought I'd share my faves/new finds that I believe are a must watch for Autumn. 

Botanics Skincare Review

Thursday, 12 October 2017

Skincare has never really been a top priority of mine, even when I went through that super spotty faze in my early teen years. I've always been the type of girl to spend as little time, effort and money as possible on my skin simply because I'm lazy and prefer to spend on clothes and food... 

Autumnal Makeup Look

Tuesday, 10 October 2017

Dark lips and burgundy eyes are the tell-tale sign of Autumn in my book. When the days begin to get shorter and the air more frosty, I seem to sway towards the warmer colours, I guess subconsciously trying to stop my face from freezing in the harsh winds!
I thought I'd let you in on my Autumn makeup routine (I only ever change the eye/lip combo, depending on my mood) that I whip out for days out, night time drinks or if I just feel like I need to glam up! 

October Book Haul - Halloween Edition

Sunday, 8 October 2017

Did I scare you? No? Okay then... well maybe one of these books will! For most people, the month of October brings rosy cheeks and frosty finger tips, however for me, as soon as the clock strikes one minute past midnight on the 1st, Halloween celebrations are in full flow!

Morphe Fall Into Frost Eyeshadow Palette

Thursday, 5 October 2017

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word: Autumn? Personally, I immediately imagine being outside in the crisp air, being wrapped up in my cosiest scarf and standing next to a huge mountain of leaves in every shade of orange, red and yellow possible. 

I Dyed My Hair!

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

Ahhh! I finally did it :) I've been wanting to dye my hair for a long time now but have never really had the courage. Well, that and the fact that my school did. not. tolerate any drastic changes of hair colour

What I Got For My 19th Birthday!

Sunday, 1 October 2017

On the 28th September 1998, little baby me took her first breath in the ever so lovely hospital of Watford, England. 19 years later, here I am with hundreds of incredible memories and experiences under my belt and stepping into the Big Wide World. How time flies!

Days at the Quarry

Now, unfortunately I'm not usually the type of person to pop out puns at will but don't QUARRY, there'll be a couple SWIMMING about today!

Stationery Haul + DIY

Monday, 4 September 2017

Stationery. Oh how I love that word and even more the umbrella of treats it describes!

A (Not So) Summer Walk

Saturday, 26 August 2017

Don't you just LOVE the english weather? Golden rays kissing your cheeks and skies without a cloud in sight. Every day it makes me so happy and, oh wait, it's not like that?
