North Wales #3 – Snowdonia National Park

Sorry I haven’t been around for a while. Took some time to deal with some personal issues, which I may or may not address later. Anyway, I thought I would give you the last installment of my time in Wales, concluding with a drive through Snowdonia. You’d be surprised at the amazing scenery you can see from the car and…

North Wales #2 – Chester Zoo + City Walks

I know Chester Zoo isn’t in Wales, but it is super accessible from Wales and only about a 10 minute drive from the actual border! I don’t support many zoos. It upsets me to see animals in captivity, especially when they are made to do shows. However, Chester Zoo is exactly what a zoo should be – it’s focus is…

North Wales #1 – Scouting for Girls & Anglesey

I’ve spent just over a week in Wales, and got up to some amazing stuff! Even though I lived here for nearly two years it was great to be able to return and be a tourist! First off, I went to my old Universities summer ball and saw Scouting for Girls live, who were surprisingly still on top form and…

North Yorkshire – Castles, Walks and Waterfalls

Last week I went for a little break to North Yorkshire and thought I would share with you some photos from it! patriotic, no?

Why you should drive to Europe, not …

One thing that I always talk about is my experience of driving around Europe – four years later and the memories that I have are still my most cherished, and it was a serious eye opener. Most people question our sanity when we say that we drove to Europe in a 1999 Ford Fiesta that cost £50 and was dropping…

I usually keep book talk exclusively to my YouTube channel (here), but I really want to do a review of Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L.Armentrout and I think I’d get my words across better in writing.  First off, if you’re a fan of Pretty Little Liars, then read on! The mystery and set up of this book is right…

Makeup Revolution – 1st Use of Eyeshadow Palettes

These palettes were sent to me by Makeup Revolution – I did not request them, nor is this post sponsored or paid for. Last weekend I woke up to a parcel outside my bedroom door. I hadn’t ordered anything, so was really confused. I tore the parcel open and found that I had been sent two eyeshadow palettes out of Makeup Revolutions new…

What I’m Loving – Balayage Hair

This year I’m looking for a new hairstyle, and on my Pinterest travels I’ve found ‘Balayage’ hair.  I’ve never had ombre hair or highlights, but I am so ready for the summer to try something new and low maintenance! So what is ‘Balayage’? Balayage is a form of highlights which do not require foils for application and so named after…
