Valencia – A Travel Guide

Valencia has always been one of my favourite Cities, but I’ve never really had the chance to experience it properly. When two opportunities to spend time in the heart of the City presented themselves this year, I jumped at them. So not only did I get to spend a day sightseeing with Emily, I also […]

5 Days in Spain – Photo-book

Whilst I’m trying really hard to make progress with my dissertation research (procrastinating), knowing that Laurie is still in Spain is making it super difficult – I just want to be back in the 30 degree heat!! So, what better way to reminisce than a post that groups together all of the photos from my […]

Summer Beauty Essentials

The beauty products I use at different times of the year don’t really tend to differ massively. The only things that really change are the actual amounts of product I apply and (occasionally) the colour schemes for eyeshadow, lipstick and eyeliner.

After a busy couple of months spent shopping and catching up with people here, there, and everywhere, I finally managed to put some money aside to do a much needed clothes shop for my holiday… WOOHOO!

Making The Most Of Summer

We spend all year waiting for the Summer holidays to arrive, and then in a matter of seconds the whole Season seems to be over, and we’re back to dragging our Winter coats out of the wardrobe. It is far too easy to waste the Summer months by staying inside, so I begin each Summer […]

When in Rome…

As you will have gathered from my photoΒ post on Friday, I have spent the last few days on a girly holiday in Rome – visiting as many tourist sites as possible… and stuffing my face with pizza! Day 1: Thursday was by far our busiest day… We left the hotel at 10am after an amazing […]

Rome Day 1 – Photo Post

Originally I planned for this Friday post to be dedicated to a review of August’s GlossyBox – partly to give me some time to take a break, but also to allow me to write properly between travelling and sightseeing days in the city. However – due to some problems with shipping and delivery – I […]

Opening Packages

I’m a terrible one for ordering things while I’m away from home. Arriving back from my Summer holiday is like a second Christmas for me because there’s always a whole load of packages waiting in the front room! I’m definitely not a spendthrift and I’m always looking for ways to save money – but every […]
